{one orange, one green, one yellow...}

salt water taffy kebabs sienna and i made for her birthday party. first they were "flowers", then party favors.

i kept decorations really simple this year. made this quick garland from scrap paper circles.

bought lots of these from a dollar store.

pink smiley face balloons.
as you can see, i'm starting to keep my motto "simplify".

the kids enjoyed a game we played:
everyone sits on the floor in a big circle. one person is blindfolded. everyone else claps hands to make some noise while i place a big pot on the floor with a toy underneath. the blindfolded person then whacks the floor with a wooden spoon until she finds the pot. she gets the toy. the kids in the circle had to scream "eek!" if the person in the middle comes too close to them. 

blank journal pages are boring. i've always wanted to have pictures in my journals too. i think they tell as much about me as the actual journaling does.
lately i've been gluing my pinterest finds on the pages.

someone's summer home.
why oh why can't it be mine? :)

then i thought i'd share one of my quirks. when i eat m&m's, i grab a handful of them, lay them on the table in color groups from most to least, then i eat them so that eventually i have an equal amount of each color. for example in this instance i would eat: 1 orange, 1 green, 1 yellow, then 1 orange, 1 green, 1 yellow, 1 blue, then 1 orange, 1 green, 1 yellow, 1 blue, 1 red.
silly, i know.
what are some of your quirks?
