10 things making me smile...

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

1 // cats in bags.
2 // finding little mushrooms!
can't wait to find tons and tons of them these next few months!
3 // these cute little notebooks. (ordered from FAB, made by Studio Oh!)
4 // silly little cat sticky notes. (from here)
5 // collecting and organizing rocks on the beach with this boy.
6 // hot chocolate topped with colorful marshmallows in a cute mug. 
hoping that was my last one of the season, bring on the warm weather!
7 // gathering myself bouquets of wildflowers to make my living room just a little brighter of a place.
8 // hanging with this dude.
seriously cannot get over how awesome Lloyd is.
9 // the silly little things my dad randomly finds and gives to me.
my dad is a mechanic for a waste disposal company and often finds great treasures.
10 // finding faces in inanimate objects.
look how happy that rock is, how can you not smile back at him!?

What's making you smile today?

  8. Ok, these are all great... but I love the last one... I do that ALL the time!

    I always find myself in public bathrooms staring at the hand dryer and thinking, "My, he's been watching me the whole time... is that pervy? I just can't be sure... I mean, it *is* his job, and he's kind of stuck there, afterall... but... still..."

  15. Lloyd!!!! You realise he's decided you are home to him now - clever kitty! Are you gonna adopt him, do you think?
    Loving that wee smiling rock!
    I've got tonsilitis, so whats making me happy is pretty simple - ICE CREAM, lemonade, my pup nurse, and my kitty doctor (they are so smoochy and cuddly when I'm sick, sweet babes)... and a whole lotta movie watching :) At the moment, I'm about to turn on I Love You Phillip Morris - i freaking love that movie!
    Luvluv,

  17. you are always good for my spirits! you make me smile - plain and simple! got a little bit of a tear here, too, looking at the treasure from your dad. my dad did the same thing for years - he had a spot on their sofa where he stashed things until i visited, then i'd come home with all sorts of treasures! good memories - it's been 6 years that he's been gone, but those memories are as fresh as the days they happened!
