Sweet Genius

Last night A.B. and I were in the mood for a yummy dessert but we didn't feel like leaving the house.
All I had on hand were some Nilla wafers, strawberries and cool whip. Kind of a no-brainer... but I couldn't just toss a box of crackers and a tub of cool whip at A.B.!!!
I grabbed some martini glasses, crushed up some wafers and put my knife skills to work.
I did a layer of cool whip, layer of crushed wafers, layer of chopped strawberries, and then repeated....ending with an ADORABLE strawberry heart. 
How did I do? :)

My Grandpa loved my Grandma very, very much. In fact, I don't think I even have a memory of the two of them where he wasn't calling her his "sweetheart" or "dear".
Unfortunately, we lost my Grandpa a little over a year ago. 
After some time went by, my Grandma was going through old jewelry and asked me to see if there was anything I was interested in.

Yes, Grandma...I'd be happy to take a look. ;)
My Grandpa bought this bracelet for my Grandma and I absolutely love it. 
It's sweet and delicate and it simply says...."Love". 

I decided to be "simple" overall today. I knew it was going to be warm and I felt like being very casual and comfy. Most of my outfit is thrifted- which I LOVE! It feels so rewarding to get compliments on an outfit that costs less than your lunch. haha
I love you, Grandpa and Grandma!
You've set the bar high...but I'm aiming to get there. :)

Lesson Learned

 I learned two things today:

1. I'm in DESPERATE need of a tan.
2. Redheads CAN wear pink.

I've worn this dress a few times before, but today I decided it needed something special. 
It needed a hot pink cardigan!
I may or may not work on the tanning situation, 
but I KNOW I'll be keeping pink in my wardrobe. :) 
Off to bed!

Fresh Coat of Paint's ME! 
I didn't abandon my blog. I've just been lacking inspiration. So..I tackled this problem the way that any normal girl would. 
I drastically changed my hair. 
And just like that---I'm a redhead!
 So, let me catch you up to speed. 
I've been continuing my half marathon training and it's been tough but rewarding. I'm only 3 weeks away from my race and I'm getting pretty excited about it! 
Oh..and if you ever decide to train for a half marathon, do your research on how to prevent things like blisters, chafing, dehydration..etc.
I've learned how to fix these problems the hard way and it isn't pretty. 

Other than that, I've been doing all kinds of 1950's housewife things like decorating, gardening and drinking all day long. (Ok, not so much that last part. I'm just REALLY into Mad Men right now.)

It's past my bedtime! I hope all is well with you!

Nighty night! :)
