Today my house was full of giggles & cake.
Lila Mae turned 10!
She had 2 little friends over for a rainbow birthday party!

so I set up this little picnic in my backyard!

Flea Market Finds

The Nashville flea market may be one of my favorite places on planet earth.
Lots of hip people.
And lots of cool junk.
Even though it was blazing hot today,
and everyone was sweating,
I was in my happy place and could care less about the heat.
I had a fabulous day of junking with two of my bestest friends!
You gotta take a look at my finds!

Potato Stamp Bag

A few days ago my family was doing some grocery shopping,
and when we passed the produce section.
The potatoes caught my eye.
the potatoes don't grab my attention.
But it just so happened that earlier that day,
 I had seen a stamp carved out of a potato on Pinterest.
So of course,
I had to try out myself,
and for $.79 it was totally worth it.
I ended up with a really cool bag!
I'm happy the potatoes caught my eye in the grocery store.

DIY Polka-Dot Sweatshirt

I am dodging every blanket on my bed,
and typing with the very edge of my fingertips.
Because freshly painted nails will be smudged by anything.
I usually don't paint my nails this late at night...
but EASTER is tomorrow!
And my nails just have to match my dress...!
I just love easter so so much.
My new mint nail color also happens to match my new favorite DIY!
My polka dot sweatshirt!

Printable Ice-Breaker Questions

Spring break is here.
No school.
No plans.
This means there will be lots of chill-axing...
At the last crafternoon,
see pictures of it HERE,
I used handy dandy "Ice Breaker Questions."
They were a hit!
Answering the questions kept the conversation running smoothly,
and kept the laughs rolling.
I made up a printable of all the questions,
so YOU can use them too!

Yard Sale Dress

Saturday was the first yard sale of the season.
how I have waited for yard sale season to begin.
I miss waking up at 7:00 on Saturday mornings.
I miss the Chacos and Nike shorts.
I miss swinging by Bojangles for biscuits.
But it has finally arrived once again.

TOMS Painting

I have never been a huge "shoe person".
If ya get what I mean...
I never have cared much about what goes on my feet.
Matter of fact,
I would rather have nothing on my feet.
there is one exception,
I love me some Toms.

Note-Taking & Doodles

You will usually find me at school,
 in my desk,
 doodling on a scrap sheet of paper.
To be honest,
I have a sheet dedicated to doodles in each subject's binder...
My "Doodle Sheets" are always filled!
I am really not a huge fan of school...
so I gotta do something to keep me entertained!
When I'm not doodling,
I am decorating my notes.

Fort Building

When I was little,
I was pretty skilled when it came to fort building.
I figured out which blankets were the longest,
which chair was the tallest,
and what books were the heaviest.
It got intense.
So when me & my friend were trying to figure out what to do one day...
I decided to go back in time,
and build a fort.

Yarn Wrapped Letter

ya know.
Sitting on my bed listening to my 'Jackson 5' pandora station.
I've recently been obsessed with 80s music.
Right now,
'Man in the Mirror' is playing.
you know it's bad when your mom walks in your room,
and knows the words to all of your music.
But on another note,
I made a yarn wrapped letter!

Converse Makeover

These shoes are my favorite shoes.
I don't really know why...
They are nothing special..
just cute & comfy.
But they have gotten pretty dirty,
so I decided it was time to give them a face-lift!
