my week in objects (mostly).

July 31, 2009
five little things that made my week:
1. this cake.cake
{because it is a wedding cake. and wedding cakes mean lots of celebrating. also because it was chocolate with raspberry preserves and buttercream frosting. my favorite}.
2. these windows.cottage
{because they are on the back of the cottage that james spent his summers going to. and they are perfect}.
3. this halibut.halibut
{because it was made by my momma and enjoyed on my parents’ back porch after a long drive}.
4. this cherry.cherry
{and all the others like it. because we snacked on them every afternoon after searching for apartments. they were so very delicious}.
5. this (1)
{because it lists local npr stations for the whole united states and is so very useful on long car trips}.
what little something made your week?

    Homemade peanut butter pie and a pair of green flip flops I wore that are really my mom's but I was silly and wore sneakers and it felt like my feet were burning off, the pie, just for being peanut butter pie.

    Haha that sounds like the best map ever! I was talking to my boyfriend last week about the purpose of printed maps with all the recent hype of GPS. However, that seems very useful, and I doubt GPS has a cool feature like that!

    Wow, what a cute idea for a post! Love the windows, they're adorable. What made my week? Hmm…beautiful blogs, fan mail, me doing a really good job on a project and being proud of myself. Yep, I had a pretty good week, a little stressful, but in the end it paid off.
    P.S. Thanks for your sweet comment on my guest blog on the English Muse!
