just plain awesome Thursdays



awesome
- having a last minute bonfire with friends and enjoying some delicious smores. i cannot tell you how long i've been craving smores. nom, nom, nom! also, we had some sweet chit chats about the mighty ducks and dennis the menace, and i more than liked it.

- snagging this sweet top in a garage sale. perhaps my thrifting abilities are better than i thought. woo!

- receiving a sweet message from a good friend saying: "you make me happy". i choose good people to surround myself with. love ya girl!

- before i forget, today is my dog's twelfth birthday. yes, i'm one of those crazy dog ladies who remembers and throws them birthday parties. but now that i live in a different state, i have to do it through skype while my momma holds him up. happy birthday teddy!!

- making bomb enchiladas from scratch for a little dinner party we hosted! you guys, this is a miracle. i don't cook. and this didn't poison anyone. it's official, i'm a housewife!

- caving in and using picmonkey to edit these photos. okay everyone, it's pretty nifty like you said. perhaps i'll keep it around for a while ::winks::

- staying up till 1am snuggling with the mister on the couch talking about anything and everything while playing with each others hands. i'm telling you, just like out of a movie. he's a keeper, i say!

  4. Awww, I love this. Seriously you and Mr. Taylor are just adorable.
    And how could you go wrong with a bonfire, smores, and discussion of those two childhood movies??

  5. What are smores? I have no clue.
    I could do with some enchiladar... hmmmm... or fajitas... or... anything mexican. HUNGRY.

    TJ you think you're crazy dog person? I call him my son, spend more money on treats for him thant snacks for myself during the month, plan my days around feeding and walking him and gave up on social life during the week when he sits home alone for 8 hours when I go to work. SO I don't want to leave him in the evenings (o.k unless my flatmate is there- then I don't feel so guilty). ANd I made him a little b-day post:

  12. Thanks for your sweet comment. Family is indeed the best. I'm glad you stopped by because I hadn't read your blog before but I'm now a fan. :D

    I love days spent wandering aimlessly around London chatting to my man about our life and goals. Perfect!

    I hope you come back and visit again (I'm talking like it's a small town or something).

  13. You chatted about the Mighty Ducks during the bonfire?

    Dude, YOU ARE SO MY PEOPLE.

    I was obsessed with the Ducks when I was 10 and 11-years-old and, specifically, had a major crush on Charlie Conway, i.e. Joshua Jackson. Back then no one knew who he was so years later when Dawson's Creek blew up and everyone loved Pacey (...which, DUH) I was sanctimonious in my proclamation that I KNEW HIM BACK WHEN NO ONE KNEW WHO HE WAS, STEP BACK, BIZZOTCHES!

    Or something. :P

    And happy birthday to Teddy!

  15. Lady, if you are looking for a photo editing tool I'd try getting a photobucket account. I've had one for years and just recently they updated their editing tools and they are pretty awesome. Much better than they used to be and tons more cool things you can use. It may not be the best of the best but it is pretty nice. And what I have is free!

    Anyway, Happy Birthday to your dog! I'm the type of pyscho that would prolly throw a party for my cats, so pet birthdays are cool with me haha

  16. Too cute about your mister and you on the couch. Yummers on the s'mores

    ReplyDelete
  17. You are so beautiful.
    And yayy for not poisoning anyone! That would be an accomplishment for me too, as my boyfriend does virtually all the cooking.

  33. If pic monkey could just get the collage thing figured out I'd be 100% smitten. How did you get your square images side by side? I can get them side by side on my blog, but when u see my blog on google reader it shows the pictures one on top of the other instead of side by side. ANNOYING!
