Let Them Eat Cake;

   I know this has been circulating around the blogosphere lately, but I had to share. Who wants to dress up a la dearest Marie and throw pretty pastries around with me?!
Enjoy! I'm off to Philosophy, XOXO.

Sweet Nothings: Snow Edition!

   I wish I could've just paused time that day. It was so gorgeous outside! I felt like I had just stepped into Narnia or a fairy realm or something equally spectacular. So here goes, ten of my beautiful snowy photographs:

My Alpaca hat! given to me by that cute boyfriend of mine.
My poor snowy car did SO much driving that weekend. 
Oil change, here we come!
There's a much better sequence of pictures for this,
but I thought this face summed it up.
   You'll probably see me use more, but I had to limit myself to ten for this post. Otherwise, you would've gotten all three hundred or so in one post! and anyway, Sweet Nothings always only have ten pictures. XOXO.
P.S! I got to cross off #101 on my list!

Happy Snow Day!

I steal most of my pictures from here. How cute is this little snow-couple?!
    Oh my gosh you guys, it's actually going to snow tomorrow. REAL LIVE SNOW! (compared to that fake stuff at Celebration)Now, granted, I am in no way excited to be delivering flowers in it and driving around on yucky ice, but still. It's going to snow! And I can build snow-people and take pretty snow pictures and it'll be so sparkly out! Anyway, just thought I'd tell ya'll because it hardly ever snows here in mid-Georgia. Have a lovely snow day! XOXO.

    Sparkly Saturday!

    With my equally fancy Mamma.
       Alright, so it's techhhhnically not Saturday anymore, but I still felt like sharing; Our Saturday was a lovely array of fanciness. I finally took a day off of work and everything else. I awoke at noon and rolled out of bed and down the stairs. I spent the "morning" organizing my closet. It may not sound like the most relaxing thing ever, but it totally was for me. Walking into a neat, clean room is so relaxing. I feel like I'm so on top of it all now. (I'll have to add some fabulous photos!) And what better way to feel nice and relaxed than getting a shower with super yummy bath stuff from, where else? Lush.
       Apres, I talked to my Beau for a while and then Mamma cooked our dinner:
    Tres delicieuse! Eggs Benedict is my very favorite breakfast, but even better as dinner!
       We began to watch Julie&Julia and Mamma began to make Vanilla Bean cupcakes. And those little sweet cakes? Absolutely delectable! I put extra pink sprinkles on mine, because I'm fancy. I went upstairs and made my bed, then crawled in and got comfy.
       And today? I did a LOT of work. I took off yesterday, but that meant I worked 10 to 6 today instead. I watched the Superbowl while painting my toenails (walking contradiction, anyone?) and Who Dat!? the Saints won! Dudes, you don't even understand how white I sound when I say that!!
       So let me show you a couple cute things that are totally Sparkly Saturday/Sunday worthy:

    Tarina Taratino "Electric Koolade" necklace! It's so colorful! It's so hippie chic! It's AMAZING!
       And then I was looking around the web and found this super cute song, so I had to share the lyrics. I'd share the song itself, but I honestly err.. didn't really like it. It was cute, but I thought the lyrics were more worthy of a better song? If that makes sense? Anyway, here goes. The song is called "Boats and Birds" by Gregory and the Hawk:
    "If you'll be my star
    I'll be your sky
    You can hide underneath me and come out at night
    When I turn jet black and you show off your light
    I live to let you shine
    I live to let you shine

    But you can skyrocket away from me
    And never come back if you find another galaxy
    Far from here with more room to fly
    Just leave me your stardust to remember you by

    If you'll be my boat
    I'll be your sea
    A depth of pure blue just to probe curiosity
    Ebbing and flowing and pushed by a breeze
    I live to make you free
    I live to make you free

    But you can set sail to the west if you want to
    And past the horizon till I can't even see you
    Far from here where the beaches are wide
    Just leave me your wake to remember you by"

    It's that time of year again..

    Happy Lost Day!

    In case you didn't know, Lost is this crazy television show about.. well.. some people on an island? Space-time continuum's? Love? Loss and suffering? Polar bears?!
    For real you guys, no one has figured it out yet. Which is why it's so very important to not miss any episodes in the final season! Five minutes and counting. XOXO.
