Wonderful Whimsical Wednesday

I love finding unique items on the web! Like card catalog minibars!

Or suitcases turned medicine cabinet! This is a great idea for all the vintage luggage I’ve collected.

These witty postcards are all the rage nowadays… some of them, not so funny, others–pretty spot on.

Ya see, most people think that Journalists should be excellent spellers… not the case with this girl. I have to spell-check my texts often.

And because I recently bought tickets to see the a-maz-za-zing Avett Brothers for Valentine’s Day. Here’s one of their lovely ballads that’s been rocking my world.

Design a Tea

I found this awesome website called Design a Tea. You can choose a base tea, pick your favorite flavors, and enjoy your custom blend. For a tea lover, this sounds amazing! To sweeten the site, you can try 2 free samples of tea you create for only $1 (no s&h) and then receive a $2 credit for your next purchase! Sounds pretty great, right?! Well I’ve ordered my sample and will let you all know how it goes!

I’m not a huge jewelry wearer but this ring is so different and pretty that I love it! Not to mention the green is my birthstone!

Why yes, I do believe I want to visit here!

Wonderful Whimsical Wednesday

I started this post yesterday and finished it up today… so I’m still gonna consider it a Wednesday post :)

I haven’t consistently posted in a while and I’ll tell you why. This was a crazy summer filled with awesomeness and 35-45 hour work weeks with my internship with Mon County Habitat for Humanity. ‘This girl’ was put in charge of coordinating a triathlon! Now Internet, I’m not a runner. I ‘can’ run; I just hate it with a passion. My toe shoes (aka Vibrams) are changing that, somewhat, but I still dont enjoy running like the nutballs who claim to get a “runner’s high” from it. Anyhow, I’m not a runner, I have never coordinated any type of race before, yet participated in one, and here I am, running the entire thing! {Insert crazy woman photo here}

Needless to say, my organizational, multi-tasking, delegating, coordinating skills kicked in and we had a successful kid and adult races with over 350 participants and 150 volunteers. Along the way, though, I did manage to fit in some fun-time this summer. I…..

….went to a Pirates game

…..attended the Man’s graduation

……Watched/photographed these manly men at the Warrior Dash

….. ate along the Ohio River with some the lovely ladies who braved this mudpit with me

….. went on a couple random trips to Audra

…. ate a lot of cupcakes

…. went to the beach and go the bright idea that it’s be cheaper and fun to stay in a tent while there!

not the case! It rained, and pored, and had tropical storm worthy winds! The Man is actually INSIDE the tent holding it down from blowing away. It was a rough time and we only got about 2 non-rain hours on the beach before calling it quits and going home. I do love an adventure though!

…. got to play with this lil girl. A lot!

….. attended my first Seventh Day Baptist Conference. With this lil man (also his first conference).

…. went through a crazy random hail storm in AUGUST!

… dog sat

…. used my first bullhorn at the Triathlon

…. ate some amazing dinners

and… I rounded the whole thing off with a saweeet birthday!

with sweet jet black helmet presents with hot pink mohawks!

and color coded trashcans for recycling

and finally, sweet stuff from people who know the way to my heart… homemade baked goods! Snicker-doodle cookies by the Man, red velvet cookies with cream cheese filling and drizzled on top by my seester, and pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese frosting from my Mamma. Nums!

So there you have it… Summer 2012 in a condensed blog post. Have a Happy Thursday!

I love this sweet little, minimalist house

Nike asked this guy to make a movie about what it means to “make it count”, so he spent all the money traveling around to sweet places! I think I’d like to have his job!

That’s my shack on the beach. right. there. Love it!

So apparently I’m into advertising for Google now.. but the video was pretty genius advertising on their part so I reposted.

A real Q&A from the FAQ section of a Night of the Running Dead 5K race held in Utah.
Q: Are these real zombies?
A: No, they are your friends and neighbors “Zombiefied” and should pose no real threat.

Happy Wednesday!

Wonderful Whimsical Wednesday

Pretty much my life goals right here.

If this doesn’t scream Laura Lee Modesitt I dont know what does!

How can a day not be awesome when you get a FREE Jimmy John’s sandwich delivered to you at work?!?

I love breaks from work that include the boyfriend bringing me lunch and eating with me at the park! That’s no regular lunch meat sandwich either, so sir. It’s a pork-chop sammich!

Kinda have to agree!

Happy Wednesday!

Wednesday are normally the tough part of the week for people. The week isn’t quite over but there’s been enough days in it to wish it was. For me, Wednesdays are the highlight of my week. My last class is Wednesday morning which means smooth sailing into the weekend. So here’s some random things I’ve ran across this week that I thought you might enjoy as well. Happy Wednesday!  ♥ B

Ana Sophia Scheller

I think ballerinas are amazing. Some little girls go the way of princesses; I think I went more the way of ballerinas. One wish that I have was that I actually stuck with the classes I began as a 4-year-old. I also wish that I had a few willing dancers to photograph for my portfolio.

I mean look at the work that Von Wong does with dancers! A-maz-za-zing!

It takes two to tango

I’m sorry but this is too dang cute!

Yes… the only reason I posted this is because it’s the ocean. And I love it. And I wish I was there! Next week, next week…

Have an amazing rest of the week everyone!

Wonderful Whimsical Wednesday

Sometimes I just like the random, playful, and wonderfully awesome! So, here’s some things that fit the bill this Wednesday.

If I lived at the beach (which I will someday), I’d make sweet images like this!

I dont know where to get this… but I thought it was awesome! via StumbleUpon
If I lived in the country… or the mountains (which I hope to do at least for a time during my life), then I’d want a house like this. I love it… maybe every part of it. Enough to finish out this blog post with nothing but pictures of this house.
Ok… so I’d probably switch out some of the furniture and artwork but for the majority… LOVE!
