Later, Adam and I met my Mom and Step-Dad in St. Louis. We went to the awesome Zoo which is always FREE (and #1 in the nation). I wouldn't recommend going on a weekend for obvious crowdage. Then we all spend Sunday (my birthday!) acting like nerds at Six Flags. (Adam hates it when I ask him to do things like this...)
I still had a blast. :)
Anywhoooo, I am hoping to throw together another little giveaway in the next week or so...Sooo keep checking back!

Oh, I could go on forever but I have already wasted enough of my morning dreaming of all the things I would love to have. The grass is asking to be mowed and Gus has made it clear I am not paying enough attention to him, so I am off! Good day!

Congrats to Gretchen!!
I just have to say I am so stinkin excited that it is Friday. I have no plans for the weekend except the usual Friday night dinner with my Adam. But for some reason I am terribly excited for him to get off work to the point it is ridiculous! Well with that said I hope the rest of you have an absolutely LOVELY weekend!!
OH! I almost forgot my awesome friend Leanne is having an Anniversary Sale at Folk!!

So when my husband and I got back from our 4th of July vacation our back deck was covered in black stuff and I had assumed it was from neighborhood kids' fireworks or someone was burning brush and it was just some for of soot that floated our way....I cleaned it up and didn't think twice....Wellllll last night I decided to sit on the deck and watercolor. I noticed the same black stuff...then i noticed it was falling from the tree above me...i look up and hollllly cow.

I will post them on my Etsy once I name all of them and write descriptions...which I like to put some thought and creativity into as well....maybe just a little too much, oh well.
I also have to mention this little tchotchke I found while thrifting. I was going to sell them but I have already claimed them as my redheaded children and they look so beautiful on a shelf in my living room...
When I found them they were all gross and dirty but they washed up nice and the colors are so vibrant! (my husband still thinks I am nuts for buying them) They also spin and play music annnnd it randomly breaks out in song throughout the day which is pretty creepy at times.
Well I must get going even though I still have a bazillion things I want to say. I got some great pictures at the fair last night that I hope to share later today!
