If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Tumblr, you may have noticed, I got a new camper.
I’ve wanted to replace our poor, broken camper, that died a painful death last year, ever since the accident, so I am beyond happy. I’m blissful. SO blissful. And bursting with ideas, because you know the first thing I did was consult Pinterest for ideas. And by golly, did I find some! I found redecorating ideas:
This is the first thing I want to do. Except maybe not with those covers. They are way too perky for me.
Then there is all the food to make!
I can’t wait to go camping!
Another thing I’ve been plotting is birthday’s. My son is constantly changing his mind on what kind of party he wants. Last I heard, he wants a Kirby party. No, wait, I just asked and now it is a BeyBlade party. This mama has little to NO idea what BeyBlades ARE exactly, but I know he went nuts when he saw this cake:
Daughter, at this moment, wants a Camping Party. Something along the lines of this:
I’m seriously in love with this cake.
That’s all I’m loving on this week. Between getting Estella ready to go for Wednesday (eek!!!) and school starting tomorrow (you guys! I have a third grader! AH!), I don’t know which end is up. I’m ready to get all this stuff going already!
My son just watched this about 6 times. It’s made of awesome. And Joss Whedon.
So, awhile back I asked for some music recommendations. And you guys came through for me! Thank you for the comments, the emails (Chris sent an EPIC email, it will take months to get through it all! Yay me!), and CDs (thanks to my Jilly Beene!). So, I’ve been exploring…and have found a few things I want to share!
I discovered what you call David Garrett’s music. Finally. It’s Classical Crossover and there are whole websites dedicated to it! There’s lots of opera and other stuff, which I’m not quite into, yet, but there is the instrumental side, which I adore. I love classical music, but I’m a rocker chick too, so I love these rocking takes on classical music. I’ve heard of this group before, Escala, but never listened much. I’m hooked now you guys.
And then there is Vanessa Mae (Vivaldi Techno):
Plus, um, isn’t she gorgeous? (Toccota & Fugue):
My Andi gave me this:
Commenter Becker gave me Girlyman. Supernova is teh awesome! The music starts around 1:30…
Kathy gave me Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys! Black Keys – Toughen Up:
I’m still exploring all the suggestions, so I will report again in a couple of weeks.
Thinking of trying these today. What do you think? They are zucchini pickles by the way. Yeah, I’m not sure either, but I AM curious. It’s either this or more Blueberry Lime Jam because I. am. addicted. to. it.
So, what are you loving this week? And what are you up to this weekend? Other than getting new tires and canning things, I’m not sure I’m doing anything. Oh, except making more headway with The Stand.
– First thing I LOVE is you guys! Huge huge thanks to everyone who took the time to comment on my post about The Princess Bride on Thursday. I am so thankful you recognized the actually pain I feel at finding I have a problem with my favorite book. I’m still struggling a bit with it, but you made me feel so. much. better. LOVE you guys.
– My garden! I am loving my garden! I bought my herbs today, so once I get them in the ground and my potatoes and onions planted, I’m good to go for this season. I can’t WAIT for fresh tomatoes and basil! And baby peaches!
– Made some Rosemary Jelly with Orange and Lemon last night. It is so pretty! And really, really yummy. I was worried the rosemary would be overwhelming, but it’s really quite perfect. Time to make some more biscuits!
Zibilee has me wanting to read The Face Thief by Eli Gottlieb even more than I already did. I read Now You See Him back in 2009 and, while I didn’t love it, it did really stay with me, which always brings my admiration of any book up. Plus, I’m interested to see how this author has grown.
I’ve shown you all the crafts, food and other goodies you can find on Pinterest, but I haven’t really shown you the books. I myself pin book reviews that compel me to want to read a book and so do many others. Here are the books I’ve pinned in the last few weeks that I just can’t wait to read.
Ooooo what a busy time of the year! I’ve been so busy, I’ve barely had time to put together one of these posts! You will see some of the things to blame; I’ve been so busy creating! Perhaps I will do a post of things I’ve made thanks to Pinterest soon. 🙂
I feel I should add, earlier this year we lost almost all our Christmas ornaments when they decided to go skiing down the attic steps. 🙁 So I’m making a BUNCH to make up for it!
