Liking This

So, during their visit, my sister and cousin introduced me to a new song.

"Oh Darling" by Plug In Stereo and Cady Groves.

Downloaded it last night. 

Super sweet and charming and I love the acoustic guitar.

Have a listen and see what you think...

I think I'm liking it.

Special Treat

My sister, her boyfriend, and my cousin all came out to visit last night and stayed the night with us.

We browsed pinterest together, watched some sweet youtube videos, ate sushi, made sopapilla cheesecake and cinnamon french toast, and went swimming at the pool.

It was nice : ) I'm glad they came


In other news...

I went to the opening night of Harry Potter a few weeks ago.

It was amazing.

Listen to this quote --

"The stories we love best do live in us forever.  So, whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home."  --J.K. Rowling

Goosebumps.  Every time.  She is so cool.  And I am so glad she chose to share her amazing story of Harry Potter with us : )

Then I saw this on pinterest...

Pinterest is addicting.

That might be an understatement for me.  It is mind-blowing. hahaha

Look at all of this...

Butterbeer Recipe

And that's just stuff on my Harry Potter board.

Amazing.  There are no words...

Just a big smile on my face.

Have a beautiful Friday!

Long Day

Today was a Monday to surpass all Mondays.

Yes... it really was that bad.

But, now I am home.  Relaxing, eating, drinking, doing a little bit of cleaning, cuddling with the dog, watching old episodes of Lost, browsing through some pretty sweet blogs.  So... it's better now.

Just got home from a few days camping at Higgins Lake.  It's one of my favorite places.

Every July, we go up for 12 or so days with my Dad's family.  Grandparents, aunts, uncles cousins, etc. The first year I went, I was 3 months old.  And I've been every summer since.

There's just something about it that I love.

Another year has passed and I feel so thankful that my family is able to come together and enjoy each other's company.

They've been going for 30+ years... and I hope it continues at least another 30.


I guess that's all for now.  Have a beautiful evening.
