oh happy day

i could eat 1,000,000 reeses peanut butter eggs.  i know that it's not easter but easter isn't about candy anyway so i'm going to keep eating them.  also, you may  be thinking that a million is an exaggeration; it's not.

 yesterday, while driving around town in sweltering heat i came to the realization that i am a big baby.  for months i begged for warmer weather.  i hate shivering and being cold & i get cold in a flash.  the next thing i know, it is warm as can be, spring has arrived in lexington, & i'm loving it.  my dreams have come true.  two weeks later it's 88 degrees and i'm sweating everywhere.  i realize that i also hate being hot.  big baby.

i'm allergic to everything.  my car is covered in pollen and apparently so is my face.  i've graduated from itching eyes and moved on to incessant sneezing.  and i don't have a dainty, girly sneeze.  it's loud & obnoxious.  borderline embarrasing really.

i recieved an award!  the beautiful blog award from wonderfully talented dawn at {lydia & pugs}.  she creates one of a kind, personalized stationery & accessories.  i want them all.  you must go check out her blog & etsy shop especially if you have a pup. 

thanks dawn!  i still need to forward the award on to some other lovely ladies but i can't right this second...i'm going to add 'em soon so please check back.

now this is terribly overdue.  i long while ago i won a giveaway hosted by my friend amber over at .{aefilkins}..  the giver was ms. creative, mandy at zillows pillows.  the pillow in the middle is the one i chose!  i took about a million pictures of it sitting in its new home on our couch but due to the terrible lighting and my poor photography skills i couldn't do it justice. 

one of my favorite parts of winning was finding out a littlle more about mandy.  she is working her way through school & is / is becoming a writer.  with each purchase she sends a little snipet or work that she is working on.  isn't that neat!?  i got the begininng of a short story she had begun the night before.  i love that.  thank you amber & mandy!!

here are a few more pieces i am coveting that are currently available in her store.  i'd like each one PAH-LEEZ!  at $20 a pop you really can't pass 'em up...most stores i've seen cost much more than that & you still have to buy your own insert.  i'd fill my whole house with zillow pillows if someone {benny} would let me.

i haven't been the best blogger lately.  i feel like i go through spurts of creativity / free time / desire to blog etc. and sometimes i'm just not in the zone.  i'm going to change my header soon which i'm excited about & start browsing for plain {but textured} background.  oh how i wish i could do all that myself.

and finally...its friday.  i'm not sure how much posting i'll be doing this weekend but i hope each of you has a fabulous weekend.  


  1. We are having the warm weather here in Chicago, too and it already seems don't feel like you are the only baby! ;-)

    Congrats on your award and I am loving those pillows. SO colorful.

    I get blogging block once in awhile, too and then I just find a party to join. It's a great way to get inspired and meet new friends.

    Hope you have a wonderful, sneeze~free weekend!


  2. Don't even get me started on Reeses Eggs (or anything PB & chocolate for that matter). Yum. I need to go find one to eat right now.

    Congrats on your blog award and winning those beautiful pillows! Hope your allergies get better soon. . .it's just starting around here and they say it's going to be one of the worst allergy seasons we've had in a while. Ugh.

    Have a great weekend Jen!
