Summer lovin had me a blast…

…don’t know why that song pops in to my head when I see this picture but it does.

I love summer. Well, I loved summer. It was my favorite time when I was younger, for obvious reasons. Now as an adult, I love summer because of the daylight lasting longer…meaning I can get more accomplished off my to do list (who says that?). Hot sweltering temperatures with all work and no play makes summer not as fun as it used to be.

Something new to my summer regiment is the drags. And not cigarette drags. Car drags!

I can’t even tell you how fun this was. I think I found a new hang out place. They even had a Jelly Belly truck that blasts fire out of it…and the fire smells like CINNAMON! I wanted to get closer but was afraid my hair would catch fire. Not a good look.

It’s a toss up between the drags and the fro yo place now. Yes, these are the two most exciting things happening in my life right now. It’s pretty pathetic.

I do think though that my fro yo would be best paired next to this lovely.

Don’t you? I mean, cake and ice cream is a must. Kind of like chapstick and lips. You just don’t separate the two.

And while we’re on the topic of lips, do you rock any glam lipstick colors. Like sexy red, or girly pink? Whenever I try these colors I feel like this. I just don’t know how to make colored lips work for me! Someone help!!

Because I need to be able to place kiss marks all over this carving in my Starbucks table.

Lucas said he carved it in that table 4 years ago (before we met) because he knew one day I’d be sitting at that table for lunch.

I heart him. Mucho. Even though he totally just lied to my face.

But of course I’m taking this as a sign from God that him and are are meant to be together forever and ever…yes, I’m a totally sign believer.

Guess what else I did this weekend?!

I hung my pictures up to form my picture wall!! So stoked about this project. —Side questions—do you like the gold dot canvases? I made them!!!! And am thinking about selling them in an Etsy shop. Thoughts?

It took an hour and a half to do it. But I had company.

Ace of Base on Pandora saw me through. I almost had to stop hanging so that I could bust in some early ‘90s dance moves.

Now that everything is hung, this is my favorite place. I wake up in the morning and sit in the hallway with my coffee cup and just stare. Is that weird?

No, not weird. I’d sit and stare too. It’s an amazing piece of work, that wall. I’m not surprised by the drag racing either. I loved NASCAR for a long time, but only when I was actually at the track. It’s an absolute adrenaline rush….you can feel the power of the engines in your chest. I totally get it.

Your pictures look beautiful! And I loved colored lips. I don’t normally wear make-up, but the one thing I do do is wear some pretty lip color.

I love your picture wall! It would have definitely taken me more than 1 1/2 hours to do that. And yeah if you have the time for it, why not open up an Etsy shop? Would be fun 🙂
