Penny and Emma

Elizabeth brought over her darling little Penny the other day and my darling big Emma got to meet her! Emma is skeptical of other dogs and especially puppies so it was quite funny to see her eyeing Penny. All in all it was quite an entertaining few minutes filled what lots of running around and Emma hiding behind me or Elizabeth. Good times were had by all :)

More Berries

These lovely little blooms are about to transform themselves into delicious berries! I think they're blackberries...they grow wild in our backyard. Yummm, I can't wait for them to start bearing fruit!

Its strawberry season!! I couldn't be more excited about the upcoming season of delicious fruits and vegetables. I just can't seem to get my fill of strawberries at the moment. I had a very, very tasty snack of them with a generous helping of nutella the other day...could it get any better?

Photos by me.

Got It

I know what you're thinking...I just bought shoes! Well I did, and they came and are awesome, but these are for a wedding I am in. My lovely friend from college is getting married this August and I have the great honor of being a part of it! When she said silver shoes, I was slightly skeptical about finding anything I would be able to wear on future occasions. You see, while heels are totally bad-ass, we don't get along that well being that I am extremely clumsy. So these fabulous little guys seem to really hit the nail on the head: they give me some hight, but offer a little more stability...SCORE! Needless to say I'm excited.

These photos of aquarium "ecoscapes" are just beautiful. I've always loved fish and aquariums, they're so calming. We had a big 35 gallon tank in our basement when I was younger and I used to go down there, turn off all the lights and just watch. It was like peering into a tiny little world. It was so soothing. You can find the rest of the photos here.

Terrarium Tutorial

The next free day I have, I'm planning on returning back to Nina's post about making terrariums. Ever since receiving my awesome terrarium from the BF, I've had a hankering for making one of my own...they really do make great gifts!

Fun Purchase

Today I got these lovely shoes...aren't they cute?!? I can't help but just love gilt groupe. It fuels my ridiculous need to buy silly, awesome things that I don't need. Now I just have to wait for the exciting day that they arrive in the mail.

I've been beyond busy these past few weeks and I have to admit that I'm feeling a bit rundown. I wish I was in this boat right now listening to the sounds of the lake. Here's to a relaxing weekend full of happy thoughts and fun times!
