Happy Monday everyone! I thought I’d jot down a few things I’ve had my eye on the past few weeks. This might be the girliest post I’ve ever done so ladies hold on to your skirts and let’s go!
• Cocktail concoctions from Mister Boffin
• These linen iphone cases from Star Creature Studio
• Design your own garden with this virtual garden planner. It’s amazing!
• For my birthday my mom gave me a great book on learning calligraphy. ‘I Still Love Calligraphy’ is a great place to start if you’re interested in hand lettering.
• Hand painted stones. Who knew?
Recently at Blood:Water Mission we launched the Power of a Mom campaign for Mother’s Day. Take a look at the infographic below to see how you can help make an impact this Mother’s Day!
In 5 days I turn 28 years old. When I have a birthday, I usually go all out. Go big or go home is my birthday motto. Remember this? I also share this special day with the holiday Cinco de Mayo. I’m still not sure what we’re actually celebrating but all I know is that I love a good margarita and can down any basket of tortilla chips in front of me.
Thanks to pinterest, it makes birthday shopping a lot easier (hear that husbands?). While searching through my 1,449 pins of things I want, I started to realize that I certainly don’t need anything. At all. I have a whole basement of just STUFF that has no purpose except to make me feel crazy. I then remembered a site Dan’s Aunt Cathy sent me a few weeks ago called “The Birthday Project”. Essentially a woman on her 38th birthday did 38 random acts of kindness. So for this 28th birthday I plan to participate in this project and do 28 random acts of kindness.
I hesitated in even writing this blog post because I definitely don’t want it to come across as “look at me!”. I suppose I’m posting this because the idea really inspired me and maybe it will inspire you too. I will however be ordering one of those jumbo margaritas and at least 2 baskets of chips in honor of my birth. And you are free to join me.
I entered Kroger’s Reusable Bag Design Contest. I have no idea how to share the link to my design to ask for your votes! Instead, I’ll just leave it here and maybe Kroger will find me on the world wide web and send me that $1000 gift card? A girl can dream!
