{ Vintage Hem }

You know when you find the perfect dress or skirt? You just see it on the rack and you're in love? Then you go to the fitting room and try it on.....and it's too short?
I found this awesome website while surfing some other blogs and just had to post it! Vintage Hems is a business that sells the cutest ever slips that are meant to lengthen too short skirts or dresses! They have some super cute styles and to top it all off I find them very reasonable priced.
How stinkin' cute is that black and white polka dot one? How about the stacked ruffle white one! I'll be for sure getting me a couple of these!!

{ Talent }

Most people who read my blog already know all about Bakerella. She is this amazing lady who does even more amazing things with cakes and what not. I've made her cake pops on a few occasions and they were great, however I about died when I saw these. How stinkin adorable are these? I can already see myself making them for 4th of July. These little guys just solidify how amazing Bakerella really is.

{ Rain, Rain, Go Away }

No seriously. Go. Away.

After I got back from the store this afternoon the sky opened up (again) and proceeded to dump on us (again).

I literally grabbed my camera seconds after it started raining and look how much water was already coming down the rain gutter!!

What you don't see in these pictures is the ice cream truck that continued to circle my block for the next ten minutes. Seriously did he think that kids were going to be hankering for some ice cream in weather like this?
It's June and for some reason it just doesn't feel like it! Come on we need some heat!!

{ Paper Hearts }

I just saw a preveiw for this movie and I think it looks so good. A must see for sure. Plus I ♥ Michael Cera. I just love his 'off' sense of humor!

{ Rules To Live By }

1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured/comprised from plants.
4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.
5. Make time for prayer.
6. Play more games.
7. Read more books than you did in 2008.
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
9. Sleep at least 7 hours.
10. Take a 10-30 minutes walk every day. And while you walk, smile.
11.. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
12. Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

14. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
16. Dream more while you are awake.
17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

37. The best is yet to come.
38. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.
39. Finally, BE HAPPY!

A friend emailed me this list of things to strive towards in 2009 and I thought it was amazing! Thought I'd share!

{ Crafts Gone Wrong }

I stumbled across this blog earlier today and thought it was just too funny not to share. Everyone knows that more than likely 25% of the time that you attempt to complete a new craft idea it goes wrong. Obviously we're not the only ones! Without further ado check out this site....
