and these for fun

and this and this for dinner tonight

and because my husband asked a cocktail--3 parts margarita mix 1 part rum--blend with ice!

A new obsession

Do you have a Pinterest account?
I do. For years I have kept binders of inspiration pictures, bookmarked sites, and starred blog posts that had ideas for someday, but this is so much better! You "pin" pictures you love and it creates a virtual inspiration board with the links!

I have boards for style, for our someday home, for the elle belle,and a couple more.

You can follow people and repin thinsg you like, I admit I get on several times a day and pin around.
You can follow me if you want...if you need an invite, let me know.

Thanks to another awesome quickpage from DHD International Scrapbooking Day's Blog Hop. I was inspired by Shannon Dombkowski's layout and I had almost the exact picture that I had snapped of Elle's unusual naptime!
