Lately Lovely

{crushed up cinnamon graham crackers+chocolate pudding+oreo+coolwhip+sprinkles=happiness in a ramekin.}

as a child, i always wanted to blow bubbles to the top of my milk... somehow, i was always stopped before i even hit halfway. but today i did it.

This morning when my alarm clock alerted me that it was 7:00 and it was time to wake up, I ignored it and slept in. The weather was too superb to stay inside, so a little while after I pulled myself out of my bed, all of the girls (my mamma, libby, penny and I) spent the morning in the garden. Oh, how lovely it was. Pulling weeds, planting beans, and transplanting my zinnias and cilantro, which were strewn across my garden in a very un-orderly fashion.  I simply don't know how that happened.:) 
Today felt like an eternity because I procrastinated with my school subjects for far too long, but when I finally finished, I felt so very free. And since my parents took a little outing to the City, we all pitched in to clean up the house. Now that was rewarding. 

Love and a hug,

{p.s. 95? Really?? What do you think about a giveaway at 100?}


  1. first of all, your photos are beastly.
    second of all, you make me smile.
    and third of all, my mom still doesn't let me blow bubbles in my drinks. I know. I'm like "mom! I'm an adult! I should be able to do this!" then I realize I just told her I'm an adult and that I'm wanting to blow bubbles in my drink.

    okay, here are my questions:
    how many siblings do you have?
    when do you usually blog, if you have a certain time?
    what's your favorite band/artist?
    what do you think of the band One Direction?

    (don't you just love me for throwing in that last one? xD)
    I totally just got super excited about the vlog.
