lucky me.

I commented on a post over at the Superhero Journal... and it turns out that I won this super cute bag! I'm really excited to get it. Thanks to Andrea and the All About Cute shop!

On my trip to Washington, D.C. I took a ton of pictures. I haven't had a chance to upload any of them yet so in the meantime you can feast your eyes on this video. My Mom, Aunt, and Sister and I went to the Newseum where you can become a TV Reporter. See the video below or check it out on YouTube.

I'm heading out of town this afternoon to start my adventure vacation. Don't be confused - this isn't the type of adventure where you fill a backpack and go exploring into the wild. This is the type of adventure where your Mom and Aunts have planned the trip and you are traveling BY BUS to Washington, D.C. With 45 women. What an adventure! Yes, I will take pictures and share stories upon my return.

google reader.

Sarah convinced me awhile ago to use google reader. I knew Sarah was smart and this recommendation just adds to the evidence of her brilliancy. So... here are few amazing things that I found this week in my google reader.

My roommate would LOVE a Rock Candy Chandelier. Found via Kitchn.

1000 words.

Conner had a great MN Reading List. He just updated it.

I could totally make one of these coat racks.

Let's have a party where we can serve pretty soda pop. With straws.

Can someone make me one of these candle holders?

I want to be on this beach.

wish list.

Bird on a Wire Necklace.

One of my goals for 2009 is to simplify... and I haven't been thinking about that much lately. I need to reconnect with my goals and see how I'm doing. But at the same time, there are a few things on my wish list. See that pretty necklace above? My friend Julie found it on Etsy. It's so pretty!

As much as I love George Strait... I do not have any of his albums. How sad is that?

I'm also on the hunt for a new laptop bag. The problem with this search is not knowing what I'm looking for. How many pockets do I need? How long should the shoulder strap be? What size? Color? Material? The possibilities are endless. Here are a few options.

And then there is this one from Keen. I can't get snag the picture for the blog post :(

fun things.

My favorite posts within my google reader are the ones that have lists of amazing links to amazing photographs or cool products. I'm in copy cat mode and want a blog posting like that of my own. Ready. Go.

My friend Julie found these awesome cookie cutters. Swoon.

I really want to eat these cookies.

I heart Adam Turman prints. He's from Minneapolis! I've been seeing his work around town for the last couple of years.

I'm dreaming of owning a house so I can do projects like this.

Reading about other people's vacation can be fun. Especially when great pics and stories are included.

My friend Sarah and I are starting an Etsy Shop. Watch out world, here we come!

This looks like yummy curry!

Very pretty pictures. Found via Sopheava de Lumiere.

And finally, the lilacs were in perfect bloom this past weekend in northern Wisconsin. Here's the proof.
