Pinterest Love

So I've become obsessed with a new website I found a few weeks ago. Pinterest.

It's an online board where you can catalogue your favorite things in life. The point is so that you don't forget that one day you wanted to make a collage of vintage maps, or that you have an excellent recipe for the most delicious cheesecake.

I've been on it for a few weeks now, and I'm am literally obsessed. Once I'm on the site, I find it very hard to finally get off and do something else, something more "productive."

So girls, if you like pretty things, funny pictures and some cool craft ideas, I suggest you go check out Pinterest. You're supposed to need an invite to join, so if you do, let me know, and I can send you one! (Boys, I'm not purposefully leaving you out, but the site is just more girl-centered.)

Below is just one example of the random things on Pinterest that makes me smile :)
Love to each and every one of you! ♥

Polka Dot Dress

I am really liking this style of dress lately. Can't afford this specific one at all (it's like $150!! No way, Jose), but it's super cute. I found it on Pinterest (blog about that on the way shortly) and am in love with the ruffles, the tie, the polka dots, and even the gray/white combo.
Tried one on like it at Old Navy yesterday that was blue and flowery, and I really liked it. However, I did not like the price. So I didn't get it. However, tomorrow morning their having a special dress sale where select dresses are 50% off! So I'm going back in the morning in the hopes that my dress is one of the ones on sale!

Proposals & Potter

Before anyone starts getting any crazy ideas, I just want to point out that this is NOT a proposal to me...Glad we got that out of the way.

It was however a proposal for my dear friend Nicole, this time last year. She writes a pretty cool blog that read faithfully. Tonight she used my P Alliteration for her post titled "Proposals & Potter," so I felt like I had to link over to it since it fits perfectly with my P theme!

Enjoy Nicole's fun life and cute blog. And I'll post something about my own life sometime soon as well! Love yall ♥

Oh, and also - you should check out my friend Dani's new blog. She just started last week. And I made a small guest appearance with some other awesome girls. :)

Penguin Watch?! Yes, Please.

So, I want a "fancy-ish" gold watch. The kind with rhinestones around the rim, and the dials on the inside. But I can't afford to pay an arm and a leg for the beautiful ones like Michael Kors makes, like this beauty...

So instead, I've been searching on Amazon to find a much more affordable option - maybe something like this...

In the meantime though, I've found this treasure - and I think I like it. I think I want it. Actually, I think I need it...

Purse Search

I feel like writing a blog randomly, but don't have a lot of time, or anything specific to share. So, here are just a few tid-bits of information about my life right now!

1. I kinda wanna start looking for a new job, like immediately.
2. I am in search of a new purse, and I can't find the style I'm looking for anywhere! Annoying. (Like the one in the picture a little bit. But I'm being kinda picky about it...Gonna do some more shopping at lunch today. Hopefully it goes better.)

3. Just bought new jewelry last night at Kohl's, and I'm already a bit obsessed with it :)
4. Looks like I'll be getting a new iPhone within the next month or so! Awesome!!
5. Unfortunately, my weight-loss extravaganza has come to a halt. I've plateaued at about 35 pounds lost, and haven't moved past that in about month. Guess I need to switch up my habits now...?
6. Taking the youth tubing tomorrow, and it's gonna be sooo much fun.

7. Apparently someone might have tried to steal my bank info?
Luckily, it got fixed before I even knew about it - so it's all good now.
8. I miss my St. Augustine friends.

9. But I'm really loving life right now, and all my friends here, and new people in my life ;)
10. Summer time is my favorite, and it's quite fantastic right now!

Picture Collage for Previous Post

Po'Boy on the Beach

It's been waaayyy too long since I've posted on this here bloggy-blog. But it's because my precious computer was sick. My dear friend Jeff got it up and running for me again, and now she's as good as new again, if not better! Thanks Jeff! :)

This is just a quick post and collage from my 4th of July pictures at St. George Island. Hopefully not that my computer is back, I'll get back into the habbit of blogging regularly again - I always forget how much I actually enjoy doing this!

So on July 4, after a visit with my Granddaddy for his birthday, Jeff and I went on a short road trip late in the afternoon and got there just in time for a delicious dinner at the Blue Parrot - right on the beach. We shared a shrimp po'boy, fries and onion rings, and I had a delicious mango-flavored drink. We sat outside on the deck and the weather was perfect. Not too hot, no humidity, nice breeze. After dinner we walked down to the beach, and parked ourselves in some squishy sand.

The fireworks were pretty incredible, and we could see them all up and down the beach. On our drive home, we continued to see more fireworks about every 10 minutes or so, so we ended up having an extremely long fireworks show all night long! It was pretty awesome. The whole day was pretty awesome :) Friends from St. Augustine/Flagler - I love and miss you all. Friends/family from Tallahassee - I don't miss you but I do love you! :) Happy Wednesday yall.

**For some reason the picture won't upload, so I'll do that later!**
