Happy Monday!

Good Morning!! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Yes I know, I've been slacking once again on the 30 Day Blogging Challenge, but I promise I will return to that tomorrow ..... Today, however, I thought it'd be more fun to give you a sneak preview of what I've been up to this past weekend. In between studying for finals (yes finals are in one week...the countdown is ON) I have taken on the project of designing birthay invites for my good friend's 3 year old daughter's Tinkerbell birthday party in a couple of weeks. Since I don't have children of my own, I was SO excited to help out with this and get my craftin' side out again!! (Oh crafts, how I've missed you). Anyhoo... I also am in charge of putting together a candy buffet for the birthday party! I can't wait to get it all together .... but in the meantime here is a sneak preview of my current project ... any ideas or suggestions, highly recommended! ♥

Of course my candy table will be fairy-like, more pastel colors, and Tinkerbell decorations!




♥Happy Monday!♥

Day 4 ~ Favorite Book

Hello my friends!! I'm back again with Day 4 of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge. On this day we are asked what our favorite book is. I again, have many. I can never just pick ONE favorite of anything! I have to say I'm a sucker for Nicholas Sparks books. LOVE them so much. He can't write them fast enough! Anyway, here are a list of a few of my favorites:

* The Last Song ~ Nicholas Sparks

* Dear John ~ Nicholas Sparks

* The Lucky One ~ Nicholas Sparks

*Sundays at Tiffanys ~ James Patterson

*Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas ~ James Patterson

*Sam's Letters to Jennifer ~ James Patterson

Okay ... I could go on for hours and hours. I'm a sucker for a good book period! I need to branch out and read by authors OTHER than Nicholas Sparks or James Patterson, but what can I say, they are great authors! If anyone has any other great book suggestions, I'm all ears!

Happy Wednesday!

Day 3 ~ Favorite Television Program

Hello again! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! I spent mine at the beach! Every year Newport, Oregon hosts an annual Seafood and Wine Festival. I hate to admit it but I'm a sucker for a good glass of pinot... Anyway, it was beautiful weather {which those of you who know Oregon, know that doesn't happen very often}. Okay, okay, I'm getting off topic here. Back to the 30 Day Blogging Challenge. Day 3 we are asked, what is your favorite TV program? Well, lately I haven't been able to watch much tv, due to the many other more important commitments I have, but thankfully I have my handy dandy DVR to record the only two shows I usually ever commit to watching, {one of which I'm embarrassed to admit}. So without further adieu here they are...

* The Bachelor & Bachelorette: I hate to admit it, but I've been a faithful follower of this now tragic show ever since Season 1. Ugh. I'm just hooked, what can I say?

* Grey's Anatomy: LOVE LOVE LOVE me some McDreamy!

*Oprah: only when I can catch it ...

Happy Monday!

Day One ~ Favorite Song

Okay, so here it is, Day One of this blogging challenge. So we are asked, "what is your favorite song?" Anyone who knows me, knows that I seem to have a new favorite song all the time. Here are a list of my current & alltime favs:

*Empire State of Mind ~ Alicia Keys & Jay Z. I just ♥ this song SO much. Maybe because it gets my bootay moving or maybe because its been my dream to move to NYC for so long. (Thanks Jess for our first trip to NYC together, after that I was obsessed).

*Need You Now ~ Lady Antebellum. Really I love any of their songs. Such a talented group. But this one reminds me of some real life situations I've dealt with.

*She's Everything ~ Brad Paisley. This song just has some really personal old memories attached to it and has a special place in my heart. I am just now able to listen to it again without shedding a tear ;)

*Sweet Home Alabama ~ Lynyrd Skynyrd. I mean come on, who wouldn't love this old classic?

*Settlin' ~ Sugarland. SUMS UP MY LIFE COMPLETELY!!!

30 Day Challenge

I just read on my dear friend Jess', blog about this awesome challenge her and her friend Claire are doing and thought I'd join in on the fun! I don't know about ya'll but I have really started to fall in love with blogging,{I'll be honest, I seem to love to read more than write myself}.

I love Tuesdays!


Can I just tell you how much I love Tuesdays? Since starting school again, my employer has been so gracious to lessen my workload and give me a day off during the week to focus on school and more importantly, myself. This term it happens to be Tuesdays ... oh and how I look forward to them each week :)

Yesterday was quite productive. I managed to get a lot of studying done, took Roxie for a walk, went to the gym, went to class, and even had time to bake some Valentine treats! Here is my first attempt at Red Velvet Cupcakes, and I do have to admit they turned out to be pretty yummy :)



Happy Wednesday Ya'll!
