guiltiest pleasure

I love nothing more than licking the spoon & bowl when i'm done baking.
( i have never ever gotten sick from doing this!)


I also really, really enjoy pancake batter, possibly even more than cake batter.
I make my pancakes so they are a bit raw in the middle so the batter seeps out when i dig into them!
am i the only one?? ;)

On day's that i have nothing to do ( which is most days since i work at night) i find myself magnetically pulled toward the nearest Forever21.
Just spotted this dress on their website (0nly about $16!) and im off to track it down.
How else am i gonna occupy myself?

feeling blue, in a good way

Last night while watching International House Hunters (I'm sure I've mentioned that HGTV is my favorite channel) I saw a house in Italy that had the most charming blue front door. I browsed through Flickr this morning and came across thousands of gorgeous photos.




I would definitely like to have a lovely blue door on our future home.

Does anyone else watch family guy?

I can not help hysterically laughing everytime i hear this.

I often sing this little ditty to Rob.

I love a cool breeze on a hot sticky, yucky day.


I hate the super hot weather we've been having here on Long Island.


I can not wait until Rob & I move to California (it's less than 7 months away!!!)

peacefully at sea

If i ever (& i pray i never do) get Alzheimers, I really hope my family does the kind thing & sends me off on a raft like the eskimo's would.

This is my current desktop on my work computer.

I usually tell my cats they are so cute, i want to eat them up; squeezing works to though ;)

My Dad found a cherry tree near where he works & brought some home.

You have NOT truly enjoyed a cherry until you have tasted one freshly plucked from a tree!


I need to track down this tree; and possibly bring a ladder!

skirting around


I bought this skirt today at forever21.

I almost didn't pick it up bc i thought it was too fancy & i didn't have anywhere to wear it.

Then i decided i'd just try it on for fun :)

Well i absolutely LURVE it & as i type this i am plotting & scheming of places to wear it.

grocery shopping just got lovelier


A few years ago i was totally on the reusable shopping bag bandwagon. Somewhere along the line i fell off....

I'm pretty sure this bag would encourage me to hop back on ;)

spotted on decor8

snag one here!

i built you a cake


too cute

i don't remember where i found this but....

this is exactly the kind of thing i would say

( & then proceed to do a little dance & sing my song even if nobody wanted to hear it!)

the title of this post has absolutely nothing to do with this picture, but for some reason that line from napolean dynamite popped into my head and made me giggle ; anyone else quite amused by this line?

Last night Rob brought home some ice cream sandwiches.

What he didn't realize is that they are dairy free, made with soy.

We were both kind of hesitant to try em but they turned out super yummy ( or so delicious as their called).

They have a vanilla extract kinda flavor mmmmmmmm :)

run fina, run!

Next weekend Rob & I are going up to Rochester for a visit.

We are going to be running a 5K with his fam.

There is one tiny little problem.

I am not a runner, i'm really a bit of a slooow poke.

Im gonna try to run a bit everyday for the next two weeks so i'll be able to handle it.

Today I ran/walked & it took me almost half an hour to do 2 miles.... which means it may take me more than 45 mins to finish the race.

I very well may be the last to finish! (I seriously might)


*reading this blog is what inspired me to attempt this measly 5k
