"Did 'ou know 'ou're bootiful?"

I freakin' LOVE Friday!  Not only does it mean the weekend is almost here, but it is my two favorite link-ups: 

One goes to that to die for cute kiddo that grabbed my face in the hallway this week when I bent down to introduce myself...told me their name, and then proceeded to grab my face in between their precious little hands and say, "Did 'ou know 'ou're bootiful?" (aka, Did you know you're beautiful?)
Here is how I felt about you cutie:

This is also a great song to go with that and I pinky promise I had not heard this song until I went to Grooveshark and looked at the popular playlist after this post was already was just meant to be.  I am kinda in love with this song now.
So, here is to you, dear,  You're Beautiful!:

Surprises from the husband.  I love getting little thoughtful gifts from T.  I had been having nightmares so he bought me a dream catcher for above our bed and these dream catcher earrings.  

 How-To:  Re-purposed a door into a headboard...coming next week.

These... Am I the only one who loves rice krispie treats AND red velvet cake?!  No? I didn't think so.  This recipe may just be the apex of deserts for me.  I, of course, found this recipe while on Pinterest from Cookies and Cups Blog.

  Playing with my new camera and my cute little town...
No, they aren't perfect by ANY means, but I took these in manual and they came out in focus and with okay lighting.   Yes, I need practice, but I don't think they are horrible and I am okay with that.
