  1. So I started reading this post and was going to comment in response to this "I can't throw out my stuffed animals or toys because I think they all have souls." and say that obviously we're meant to be blog friends. Then I scrolled down and saw that you nominated me :3 Thanks, pretty lady!
    Oh, and speaking of tomato & mayo sandwiches, I used to eat PB & mayo sandwiches. SO GOOD, but apparently thats "weird" Haha :)
    xo Heather

    1. YES! Then let's make it official. I now dub us, blog friends. I mean come on...we have animal obsessions (even when they are fake) & eat weird sandwiches. That's reason enough for friendship to me!

      & you are so welcome! It's a fun thing to do. And a great way to network. & deserve it. I look forward to reading your post!!

  2. I always read more than 1 book at once too, it's probably because I'm in grad school, but I also have trouble focusing on one thing.

    Have a great weekend! I love learning more about you.

    1. Oh glad to know I'm not alone! But here's a little secret.... I heard from someone that reading more than one book at a time means that you are really smart!! I'm not sure if that is true. But...we can believe it.

      xoxo Thanks for the kind words!!

  3. I don't know if I've ever even had black raspberry ice cream! And I'm totally addicted to instagram too.

  4. Sharon! Thank you thank you thank you for nominating me, it means a lot that for a fellow blogger to like my content xoxo

    Happy to see you're a bibliophile, too - my nightstand is stacked with them!

    Hope you're having a lovely Saturday :)

  5. aaah rainy weather is the best for getting stuff done, and using your talent for eating;)


I'd love to hear from you :] Questions, thoughts, rants... I love it all.
