Miscellany Monday {Catch Up Edition}

I've been gone for a while. I know. I failed you all last week. It was a busy busy week and there are only so many hours in the day. So... lets just go with the fact that I took a lil breaky break from the "plugged - in" universe. 

How was your week, dolls?! 

I thought I'd link up for a little Miscellany Monday action. My sweet blogger friend, Erin at Living in Yellow always does this and I thought - what they hey - why not join in on the fun?! 

So what are you waiting for?! Link up at lowercase letters!!

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. last week was my "birthday week" and it was fabulous. i got to celebrate with so many of my closest friends. there's nothing that makes me happier than spending time with these people. they are my world.

2. i love thunderstorms. especially ones in the country - the ones that take forever to blow in. you can see them rolling thru the valley for 30 minutes before you ever hear the first rumble of thunder. one is rolling in right now. heavenly.

3. my mom has gotten a phantom subscription to Vogue and Allure. and this makes me insanely happy. now i get to read these magazines, for free. every month. i. love. that. {seriously, it's the little things.}

4. i have become obsessed with River Monsters. it's this show on the Animal Planet about killer fish found in rivers. it's addicting and makes me NEVER, EVER, EVER want to get into any water other than the swimming pool. the amazon and i will never be friends. {not like we would have been anyways, but i'm just saying.}

5. i have a serious redecorating itch right now. this itch needs to be scratched. 

6. cucumber water is the most refreshing thing, ever. seriously, why don't restaurants offer cucumbers instead of lemons in the water?! {they need to start, stat.} have you tried it?! No?! you should!

7. i had breakfast with an old friend saturday - i was a bit nervous {although i told him it's silly to be nervous...}. it had been a good 8 years since we talked. but it was so good. so nice to see an old face and catch up. its refreshing to chat with someone who knew me so well so long ago. 

I hope y'all had a fabulous weekend. 

love always. 


  1. I love thunderstorms as well. I can't believe how stormy this weekend was! Beautiful photos as well.
