Going for the gold

This is awesome. Pure genius. Whoever built this masterpiece would certainly be a good friend of mine!

I'd welcome squirrels to my backyard if I had this kind of set-up!

Easter Goodness

I can't wait to make these Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies for Easter weekend!
How delicious do they look?? Yum!!
Such a great twist on the original Carrot Cake!

No reason. Just because I like the photo and it makes me smile.

Don't Give Up

While I'm posting music...

For the record, I am extremely disappointed that I had to miss the John Mayer and Michael Franti concert here in Dallas last week. What a great couple of musicians! I would have been in acoustic heaven!

This song is a little more mellow than my St Pat's pick, but I enjoy it just the same:

"Just believe in me, and I'll believe in you..."

Wicked Lucky

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Between watching Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day last night (totally bad ass, by the way), and hearing all the great Irish pub music today, I'm ready to ship up to Boston too.

What a great day to be Irish! :)

Love this!

Although I know it would never actually look like this while my crazy dog played with it, the concept is adorable! It's the pup-stache!

Saw it here.
Get it here.

How I often feel about the news...

Party Time, Excellent

Spring is almost here and I am DYING to throw a theme party!!

For some reason, I really want to host a wine and cheese party. I have it all planned in my head... beautiful cheeses and breads, paired with delicious wines, displayed among pretty green bottles, white flowers, grapes, and more... wouldn't that be lovely?

I already have many of the elements I would need: clear and green vases for flowers, recycled glass jars for flowers or breadsticks, white trays for cheese, little glass trays with grapes on them, and these adorable glass jars shaped like bunches of grapes that would accent a buffet perfectly.

Oh won't you let me plan a wine and cheese party for you?? :)
