fa-ra-ra-raaaaa, ra-ra-ra-raaaaaa

What I did today:

-Figured out which pictures to print for family pic gifts

-Went through the checkout at Target Three.Times.In.Ten.Minutes. Yes, that's right.

-All together I purchased boo-ku frames, super fab too-sparkles y'all!; one roll of gorge black wrapping paper with simple stencil sketched, ivory flowers; a strand of ribbon stapled together, meant to go to one gift usually. I promptly had Hunter remove said staple with scissors so I could disassemble to make ribbon for many gifts, already curled. Oh, yes. Time/finger-saver, good friends. And I only had to make two stops for more photos to be printed out. Whoo, I'm exhausted all over again.

-Got home, forced Hunter awake from his nap to look at my finds, explained my wrapping ideas, woke Hunter up again from nodding off, grabbed my tape, scissors, and some extra trinkets I've had around the house this year. Items included these floral table embellishments from Andrea's bridal shower and a gold paint pen. I have used both of these investments numerously and quite enjoy every new idea better than the last. I love keeping these around for good moments like this.

I refused to run back into the depths of hell aka Target once more. I also figured I either had gift name tags from the last time I bought a pack 3 years ago- stuff lasts forever! If I didn't have those I'd sort it out. And that's what I did. I took the cardboard backs from the frames I bought and cut them down to about half size. Adds a simple elegance and crafty-chic appeal dontchathink?




I love this print!






Said pictures being gifted:




I had so much fun!


Feeling festive,

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
