135 : 365 My cuttings are getting so big!
136 : 365 I bought a personal blender a little while back and it was seriously one of the best twenty bucks I've ever spent. I've consumed more fruit these last few months than ever before. It's excellent pre-bike ride fuel.
137 : 365 Evening bike ride with Jeff and Brandon which included a quick stop on the tracks to check out the sunset. They stood around while I snapped pictures and tried to pet a stray cat who wanted absolutely nothing to do with me.
138 : 365 My favorite Canadians drove in for a visit. I have so many more photos to share this coming week.
139 : 365 I am always excited by city mushrooms. Found these babies in a parking lot.
140 : 365 We got frozen yogurt at Piccadilly for the very first time. I had basically always avoided frozen yogurt because people kind of made it look gross. Gummy bears, chocolate chips, and frozen yogurt look disgusting together. Yuck.  But Piccadilly has tons of vegan options so it was the perfect place to take Elycia and her family. I ended up falling in LOVE. I cannot wait to go back. If you're near Cleveland, Piccadilly is a must!
141 : 365 A new plant I couldn't resist simply because I had never seen anything like it, 99 cent thrift store find that makes a perfect vase, and more new plants.
It was an excellent week, to say the least.

You guys, Treehotel in Sweden literally has some of the coolest places to stay ever. I would happily stay in any one of their seven rooms but the UFO has my heart. That's some bucket list material right there.

 Easily one of the cutest door stoppers ever.

I LOVE this tiny skull ring.
If I can't live in a beautiful home this style, at least my animals can, right?

These prints by Nan Lawson are adorable. She has a handful available from different movies but I picked the two of my favorite movies.

Does anyone out there have a rainbow maker? Are they as awesome as they sound because I could use more rainbows in this place!
In the past year or so I've begun collecting signs, these two would be an awesome addition!

Link Love...

Now that I've told you I'm going on another road trip I can subject you to hearing about it all the time just like everyone who has seen me in person this last week or so. It's essentially all I think about and nearly every other conversation I have is related to it. I just can't believe it's actually happening again. *knock on wood* I am SO excited. It's a little bit too soon to start packing but you best believe I'm already planning what I'll be packing.

I'm obviously trying to save every penny I can for the trip. Every thing counts, especially when you're in In-N-Out territory and are a bit of a burger maniac. Y'all, I cannot wait to eat In-N-Out again!! But the day after I booked my plane ticket I stocked up on film and then went straight to TJ Maxx. I wanted to buy something special to wear on the trip. I tried on a handful of things but wasn't particularly crazy about anything so I left empty handed.

Then this morning as I was catching up on the internet after a little three day break (My favorite Canadians came for a visit! More on this soon. I have, uh, 40 billion photos to edit) I saw Modcloth was having a huge summer sale and I immediately set to work browsing for thing I'd love to wear and take on my upcoming trip! There is seriously so much cute stuff marked down right now.

I'm most interested in finding cozy shirts for the trip. I recently picked up these shorts, which aren't currently on sale but are worth every penny, and now I just need some tops to go with them. Even though my wardrobe has changed from all dresses to a good mix of jeans and dresses I don't really seem to have very many shirts.

The last trip I didn't take a single dress just because I knew I probably wouldn't want to wear a dress when I hadn't showered in a few days. The two above though look so cozy and relaxed I think they might be perfect for long days spent in the car. I'm especially fond of the striped one. I should probably grab it before it sells out in my size!

One of my road trip goals is to actually get photos of myself this trip, proof I was actually there, ya know? Jeff mentioned another couples outfit post in the desert with cactus, and I am 100 kinds of into that idea, I just need to make sure I pack something that will make me feel super cute no matter how sunburnt, and sweaty I am!

This is another dress I dug out of my closet while gathering things for an upcoming shop my closet sale. I've probably only worn it two or three times. Whoops. It actually has a little bit of sentimental value to me so even though I hadn't worn it in a while I was almost positive I wouldn't be parting ways with it. Shortly after getting my license I drove to Philadelphia to see my favorite band two nights in a row. It was my very first time traveling completely alone, I had definitely never been that far from home by myself. The trip wasn't all that great. (You know, I'm almost positive it was because I forgot to eat almost all weekend. Haha, adulting 101, Seriously. It's kind of funny now how dumb that was/is.) Anyway this was one of the dresses I brought along. At the time it was brand new, and I was just so excited to explore the city in it and then dance my butt off. I had a horrible headache when I woke up the morning I was going to wear it and I ended up just driving straight home without ever wearing it. The direct memory tied to this dress isn't the greatest, I guess, but at the same time it was such an exciting chapter in my life I can't help but love the dress because it's attached to that time. Does that make sense? Regardless, its still a super cute dress and maybe someday I'll go explore Philadelphia properly in it!

Hope you're having a great week!
