Project: Summer

One way to ensure total summer awesomeness.

This is without-a-doubt The.Best.List.Ever.

So happy to have found it over at The TomKat Studio.

This summer,
We Are Going To Destroy This List.

.... As in, the activities on it.

Like, totally going to conquer it.
                 ....most of it.

Look out List.

If only the drive thru lady from Tim Horton's knew just how much I appreciated the little smiley face staring back at me on my to-go coffee this morning.

And for the record, yes--

I am one of those '1/2' cream orderers/pain-in-the-derrieres.

Recently converted.

'Cause 2 cream is too much, and 1 just ain't enough.

Trust me.
I'm even embarrassed for myself when ordering.

all clear.

ATTENTION: Plans for the Ark have been put on hold until further notice.

The big-bad gang of rain clouds that have been assaulting our poor town
all week long
{although leaving everything beautifully cleansed & green}
seems to have dispersed for the moment.

And just in time too.

'Cause today is the first day of summer.

Did you know: Wearing rubber boots makes you feel like a kid again.
Try it.

Have a sassy Summer Solstice :]

It's Father's Day.

It takes a special kinda daddy to raise these two gaffers.

Wishing all daddy-o's a splendid Father's Day.

But especially James,
pappa dearest,
for being a one-of-a-kind.

And sexy.
Did I mention sexy?

Question:  If Ava's gonch are so uber snug on her head....
What does that say about my knickers being so saggy baggy on James' head?

This is Ava and her buddy, Alexis.

Chowing down on icecream cake on the front step.

Are you seeing what I'm seeing?

An Alf T.V. tray and Biebs-ter paper plates.

When did these kids get so cool?

Who Invited the Wizard?

Yesterday, Ava & I were guests at Miss Avery's birthday party.

My bestie-pal Ramie's daughter, Avery.

Avery's 4th birthday party at McDonald's was the bomb for the following reasons:

We feasted on nuggets, fries & chocolate milk.

The kids were able to expend all their energy running like wild animals through the playland.

Crave Cupcakes for dessert.  Hello.

A tornado watch was issued mid-party.

I think there may have been a wizard in our presence
{If only I had a taken his picture}

Kids + Cupcakes= Cute

Guess what grand adventure we'll be embarking on tomorrow?

Having our 2 year old twin nephews sleepover for the first time.

Wish us luck!

{Vintage Mix Stock Flowers}

Would you believe these flowers are from my very own wildly 'rustic' garden?

Me neither.
But they are.

Just picked them out from the greenhouse this past monday.

My giddy-greenthumb heart dropped when the greenhouse keeper advise me to cut the blooms off immediately after planting.

You know, to encourage new blooms...?


I'm trying to be a real keener this year
in regards to my garden
so, sadly, I did as the lady recommended.

But not without snapping a quick pic of just how gorgeous these flowers are.

--Funny, how anything with the label 'vintage' tacked onto it, instantly becomes superfabulous?!

I sometimes ponder why God didn't make me a ginger?

I mean, for really--  How glorious is her hair!?

I'd love me some fiery red locks....

And speaking of red--

Have you seen the movie Bridesmaids yet?

Starring Kristen Wiig, who I think

might just be the funniest woman alive....


Insanely comical.
But crude.
But hysterically funny....
....but crude.

I've gotta say I'm totally crushing on
Kristen's red hot mani she sports throughout the movie.

So much so, I had to go out and get me my own.

Deeply In Love from Nicole by OPI.

You know what ladies--
I'm just gonna go out on a limb here
and say...

~Life Changing~

Amazing what a freshly lacquered set of talons can do for a woman.

This afternoon,

I think I might leap some tall buildings,

climb a mountain,

single-handedly stop a runaway train

....and maybe wrestle a bear.

Yesirree, amazing.

Wanted: Gnome

What could go more perfectly with my new toad house?

But a Gnome, of course.
