Hello Thursday

TILTtitleIts another Thursday of another week, but seriously? This has been such a great week! I had my appointment with my GI specialist on Tuesday and I’ve never left a doctor’s appointment feeling so good. I’m sure I’ll talk about this some more, but I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders…just from really understanding what’s going on inside my body. Specialists are awesome!

So yes, great week! And I’m celebrating with coffee, a fresh hair cut and {things I love} Thursday.

>>>> My favorite Instagram images from the past few days. Colors and “girlosophies” making me happy. 1//2//3//4

>>>> Chevron is a trend that I have totally fallen in love with…I love it on clothing, scrapbook paper, accessories and as my blog background! Here are a few things on my wish list that I would love to add to my chevron collection.

1. Black and White Chevron Earrings: $7.00 2. Grey Chevron Long Zipper Pouch: $11.00 3. Chevron Vinyl Laptop Decal: $14.50.

>>>> A tweet led me to this great sketch with Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David driving around in Jerry’s VW Bug and going to get coffee. I love seeing comedians in regular life being funny. Like spit-tea-out-of-your-mouth funny. Yeah, that happens. I’d like to think I’m that funny…maybe just to myself. And my unintentional pause face in this screen capture is pretty killer. Click and enjoy.

>>>> This is a pretty awesome pin-board that I found all about Altoid Tins and their many uses. My favorites: the mini marshmallow roaster and the zen garden.

>>>> I was totally intrigued by this post on the Define blog about shooting an engagement session with a disposable camera. Such pretty and naturally magical images. You should pop over and check them out. They’re done by photographer Kristen Marie.

>>>> I don’t know what my friend Kelly has planned in the way of birth announcements, but these are just adorable. I saw the post here, but you can purchase the custom illustration from artist Denise Hedin in her etsy shop. I wonder if Kelly would let me design hers…that would be fun.

>>>> Three great tutorials for fun short hair styles via ModCloth blog. I can’t wait to give a couple of them a try. I really love my short hair, and its fun finding new things to try with it.

>>>> These painted shelves via DesignLoveFest are pretty awesome. The unique designs painted on them are all hand drawn first. They have a great video about the whole process up on the blog and the finished styling of the shelves is pretty much perfect. I wish I was better at that.

>>>> Post I loved reading recently: A letter to the man who will one day make me an honest woman written by Meg of The Wild and Wiley Ways of a Brunette Bombshell. Killer writing.

>>>> And lastly, the power of spoken-word poetry. I was so moved by this TED Talk by Sarah Kay I had to share it. I emailed it to my mum after I first watched it. I think she is my “Point B.” Enjoy…

    1. Thanks hun. I actually writing an email to tell you about it. I would love to see your disposable camera shots. I participated in a disposable camera swap that I'm waiting on pictures back from. It was fun to see the world through a different lens for a change. :)
