Things I love right now

Like, right this second. Because the things I love change often.

My sunflowers in a mason jar

We are trying to sell our house. This means a lot of things. It means most of our stuff (including our vases) are in storage right now. It also means that our realtor said to make our house more "welcoming." What's more welcoming than fresh flowers? Of course, I didn't remember that we had no vases until I got home with these beautiful, happy sunflowers. No worries. I had an empty mason jar in the cabinet, so I cut the stems short and made a sweet little bouquet that's not overpowering. Don't they look like they're saying, "Hi! Buy our house at the price we listed it at!" I felt so much like Martha Stewart when I did this, except without the insider trading stuff.


Dude. I've told you already to read Hunger Games and Catching Fire. Now you have another book to read. I can't even talk about it without spoiling, but I will say that it is FANTASTIC and your life is LESS because you haven't read these books. Seriously, I would say they're on the same level as Harry Potter. Yeah, I just went there. They are in no way comparable in storyline, but in a beautifully crafted story they are running in the same race. Read them.


One of my dear friends is having her first baby, a little girl. I started crocheting this sweet melon blanket for her last week and it is almost finished. I can't wait to give it to her!

What are you loving right now?

Working out. I'm starting to enjoy the time doing something for myself. I'm seeing a teeny bit of progress, so that's good.

Skinny Cow - can't get enough of 'em these days. You know it's bad when your two year old wakes up in the morning and immediately asks for a Skinny Cow.

These last couple of days of insanely beautiful weather. It's back to warming up and we'll be 100 degrees by Thursday. But the weekend of weather in the 70s was absolute Heaven!

My husband. I don't tell him enough. But he's just plain awesome.

I love your happy sunflowers! I love Mockingjay even more! I love that I just painted my kitchen in a ridiculously bright yellow!

Cute blankie!
