happy happy birthday kirbie!

sparkle keds!

Look what I found... sparkle keds. Alice + Olivia has teamed up with keds to create a limited edition line for Neiman Marcus and Alice + Olivia. They should be hitting stores any day now {yay!} I have in the past been a very devoted keds wearer, averaging around four pairs during my college years. I think they will be making a comeback in my wardrobe :) I do love anything that sparkles.

Did you see Jenna Lyons on Oprah last week? She is the creative director for J.Crew and I personally think that she is a genius. I LOVE LOVE LOVE her style... and the newest may catalog is gorgeous as well. J.Crew, you have done it once again.

wall art

my room is still headboardless/ bland above my bed...
i am currently pondering this idea. i just dont want it 
to look cheap/sloppy especially since i dont have a headboard.

and i still desperately need to paint my walls. i am still
in love with the new martha stewart greys... they
are just perfect unlike my current yellow mess of a
wall color. (decisions, decisions...)

happy happy birthday mindy!

This post is a bit belated as Mindy's birthday was on 
Friday and not today.  She has now been 23 for three
whole days. These pics are not from her birthday
but they do sum up her perfectly. This was a karoake 
adventure of ours a few weeks ago. And congrats to KB,
she got a new job as a kindergarten teacher :)

i love how life sometimes works... or all the time works.
this morning i crawled out of bed with no job. 
tomorrow i might go to bed with two
{or maybe not a one}

but today was a good day and i am quite thankful.
i hope yours was just as lovely

google maps envelopes

This is soooo cool. It isn't an actual product yet, only a concept... but how fun would it be to send 'snail mail' with a map of where the mail was traveling.  The addresses are even located in the correct spots: brilliant. I personally love to receive mail and I can only imagine my excitement if the envelope was a map. Pretty darn cute and smart if you ask me... what will google think of next?

favorites {as of late}

something beautiful

In your ocean, I'm ankle deep
I feel the waves crashin' on my feet
It's like I know where I need to be
But I can't figure out, yeah I can't figure out

Just how much air I will need to breathe
When your tide rushes over me
There's only one way to figure out
Will you let me drown, will you let me drown?

Hey now, this is my desire
Consume me like a fire, 'cause I just want something beautiful
To touch me, I know that I'm in reach
'Cause I am down on my knees.
I'm waiting for something beautiful
Oh, something beautiful

And the water is rising quick
And for years I was scared of it
We can't be sure when it will subside
So I won't leave your side, no I can't leave your side.

oh glorious day

Living He loved me

Dying He saved me
Buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified
Freely forever
One day He's coming
Oh, Glorious Day
Oh, Glorious Day

One day they led Him
Up calvary's mountain
One day they nailed Him
To die on a tree
Suffering anguish
Despised and rejected
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer
One day the stone rolled away from the door
Then He arose o'er
Death He had conquered
Now is ascended
My lord evermore

oh, mr. darcy

Mr. Darcy: I love you. Most ardently. Please do me the honor of accepting my hand. 
Elizabeth Bennet: Sir, I appreciate the struggle you have been through, and I am
very sorry to have caused you pain. Believe me, it was unconsciously done. 
Mr. Darcy: Is this your reply? 
Elizabeth Bennet: Yes, sir.
Mr. Darcy: Are you... are you laughing at me? 
Elizabeth Bennet: No. 
Mr. Darcy: Are you *rejecting* me? 
Elizabeth Bennet: I'm sure that the feelings which, as you've told me have hindered
your regard, will help you in overcoming it. 
Mr. Darcy: Might I ask why, with so little endeavor at civility, I am thus repulsed?
Elizabeth Bennet: And I might as well enquire why, with so evident a design of 
insulting me, you chose to tell me that you liked me against your better judgment.

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is

 LORD forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.
