wednesday loves

I’ve got a whole slew of lovelies to share today, so let’s get right to it! I am completely over the moon about this super pretty number pinata how-to from Oh Happy Day!  There’s a birthday celebration coming up in our house next month. I’ll get to try it out soon!

I think it would be fun to make letter too and spell out messages. So many possibilities!

I’m not a big tea drinker but I do like making iced tea. And I like making jasmine tea best because it smells like drinkable flowers. We picked up a new packet of tea bags this weekend. Aren’t they pretty?

a few flickr favorites

Happy Friday! Don’t you love the feeling of freedom that Friday brings each week? I do! I have a few little housekeeping things that I want to do and a whole bunch of fun projects that I’m excited about getting into this weekend. I’m feeling inspired by the flickr streams I follow and can’t wait make things! I hope they’ll inspire you a bit too!

wednesday loves: travel lust

We had an extra adventuresome (my current favorite word, by the way) time at the dog park tonight. I really wish I had brought my camera along. So many wagging tails and cute puppy faces! So instead of photos of the pups and his friends, I just have photos of places to share. They are beautiful places though. I wish I could visit each lovely spot!

road trip memories

Joel sent off a bunch of film to be scanned and after weeks of waiting the scans came in last night. Some of my favorites were from the road trip we took last summer. Four of us drove from Chicago to Rochester, NY for the wedding of dear college friends.
On the way back we realized we were super close to Niagara Falls and stopped to take a look…

We had a free day before the wedding and it was cold and rainy so we stepped out of the rain and into Magnolia’s and had the most amazing tomato artichoke parmesan soup ever!

Spring was so lazy about taking its sweet time to get here that summer had to step in! So the tulips are only just beginning to really show up during a week of 80+ degrees and thunderstorms. It’s finals week at my day job and soon I’ll be busy processing grades and lots of other paperwork, but for now it’s quiet.

I’m feeling a little daydreamy for summertime and travel. For today’s loves I planned a dream vacation itinerary with some help from my flickr favorites:

flickr favorites

Tonight we’re going to Milwaukee to see Ben Folds & Street Corner Symphony! We found out about the show at the last minute and just decided to go today. We aren’t usually so spontaneous. I am so looking forward to it!

Until then, I still have the workday afternoon to get through so I snatched a few recent flickr favorites to share with and maybe make the time go faster. I must be subconsciously thinking of summer. There certainly seems to be a theme to my recent favs…
