and while you're at it...

And while your at it, go ahead and order some of these fab Sarah Cihat dishes to eat your grilled cheese on...


I just found this on another blog and I can hardly contain myself!
Well, April is pretty much over but before we let it go I think that we should acknowledge one thing. April seems to get a lot of talk about it's showers that brings May flowers, but did you know that April is Grilled Cheese Month?! Well, according to this website, April is just that.
I am thrilled to find out about this, and the only complaint I might have is that I found out about it a little late.

Click here for tons of yummy grilled cheese recipes to celebrate with!

A Post-it's Best Friend

In decorating my new office I have been desperately looking for a bulletin board that would fit into a certain dimension on an angled wall. This area of wall and the twenty something post-it notes that are all over my desk are just begging for a bulletin board. Well as of today... problem solved. These bulletin boards are so pretty and unique. Little Pretty Studio at Etsy created a very innovative design on a forever classic item that will soon be making an appearance on my new office wall.

and we can't forget....

Happy Secretary's Day!!!

Happy Earth Day!!!

In honor of Earth Day, I think everyone should purchase an organic made canvas bag to use as a replacement for plastic grocery bags.

Come on... you know you've looked at them and wondered what it would be like! You'll look a lot cuter with a canvas bag on your arm than an ugly plastic bag, and you will do a small part to help our earth.

Think green, every little bit helps.
I found this and edited it to fit my format, and lost the address of the page that I found it on... oh well, just know it's not original... it was stolen with pure motives! =)

I need some...

I'm gonna sing this song
To let you know that you're not alone
And if you're like me
You need hope, coffee, and melody
So sit back down
Let the world keep spinning ‘round
For yesterday's gone and today is waiting on you to show your face

It might not be
The prettiest thing that you'll ever see
But it’s a new day, oh baby, it’s a new day
And it might not look like
A beautiful sunrise
But it's a new day, oh baby, it’s a new day

I’m a pilgrim soul
I've traveled far and come back home
This land is hard and cold
For those who long to love
And I know it might seem
That the world is crumbling
But it’s me and you dancing in the kitchen at 2 am
And we're still alive

It’s the calm of the storm that comes blowing in
It’s the springtime saying I'm back again
The clouds that roll by
Crossing moonlight
Me and you love – everything's alright
Standing in the rain with nowhere to go
Laughing and we're spinning and I hope that you
Remember this day
For the rest of your life
Me and you love – everything’s gonna be alright

And it just might be
The prettiest thing that you'll ever see
It’s a new day
Oh baby, it’s a new day
If you look outside
To see a beautiful sunrise
It’s a new day

(New Day, by: The Robbie Seay Band)

a colorful life

The only problem with being a colorful free spirit is that sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe... other than that, it's fabulous.
