Going Basket Crazy

This may seem a little random, but I’ve been obsessing over fruit baskets lately.

Sometime over this weekend, I spotted one that I adored and thus began the etsy search for the best fruit basket around.

The two kinds I really like are the hanging baskets and the tiered stands. Now, the tiered stands are typically used for cakes but I think using them to store and display fruit would be a really nifty use, too.

How do you store your fruit? We have a basket now, but I think we need one a little bigger with a little more visibility. Warmer days mean more fruit eating for us!

Summer is Here Already

20140416-122154.jpg

Here in the mountains of WNC, we’ve been having some beautiful weather, followed by some get-back-in-your-pjs-snuggle-up-and-watch-a-fire kind of nasty weather. If you’ve ever visited Asheville, you know what I’m talking about. The weather here is more indecisive than I am when picking out pretty dresses to wear on a date night. Yeesh.

Nevertheless, we cherish our bright, sunny days here and make the most of it by cramming our evenings and weekends with as many activities a normal person can handle. This past week I:

•Went to the park with little E and my 15 years+ bestie where we had a picnic and played on slides (pictures 2 & 3).

•Celebrated a sweet, special friend’s 28th at some of the best joints in Asheville, including Wicked Weed (where we had beers with a party squid #squidattack) and Ben’s Tune Up (dance party, what-what!) (picture 4).

•Said “a tout à l’heur” (see you later) to one of our favorite double date buddies who are moving to the big city (aka Raleigh) to get real jobs (sorry, Asheville!) with none other than herring, cheese, wine, roasted peppers and pbr (picture 1).

And these pictures don’t even include the triple-trouble birthday party we went to on Saturday where little E got a crack at her first piñata! (There’s a video!)

With all this activity, it’s already feeling like summer when there something happening all.the.time. in Asheville.

Whew! Just thinking about this weekend is tiring me out!

What about you? Are you already obsessing over spring/summer plans? I know I am! ❤

Hello! I am still alive & crazy about DIY!

20140408-115519.jpg

I know it’s been a while but I did mention that it might take me a while to get back into the blogosphere after starting back into the 9-5 grind, didn’t I? 😉

Well, I’m back now, so here we go.

Picture One: I’m totally in love with this picture of my little E. She has gotta be the most tenacious, strong willed little girl I know. Since I’m back to working full time, I’ve realized just how much I enjoy being with her, watching her grow and learn and be the most amazing person in the world.

Picture Two: I know I’ve shared this photo-quote before, but it is definitely my daily mantra these days. (I’m so sad to report that I can’t find the original link right now.)

Picture Three: This St. Patties Day themed cake is so past due, but ohmygawh, isn’t the prettiest and tastiest-looking thing?

Picture One: I really, really adore backdrops, and really pretty, frilly ones especially. But the texture of this is to dyi for – har har. I would seriously decorate my apartment with this!

Picture Two: So I’ve made dough ornaments before but I’ve never tried my hand at magnets. Same concept, just a different use.

And Picture Three: Ok, so it seems like I may be really jonesing for something sweet, eh? These beautifully-colored doughnuts should be in my tummy. Now.

So I hope you’re still around, friends, because I really appreciate you stopping by. It’s nice to have some company to talk about the pretty, precious things in life.

Have a fabulous day! ❤
