Cupcakes and Watermelons and Quilts... OH MY!

Another fabulous sale shopping day for moi! Take a look at these buys:

First stop... Christmas Tree Shops for this adorable beach quilt by Vineyard Haven. Madras and all things summer, I'm in love. Reg $39.99 on sale for $19.98 and its Ginormous!! Her are are few pics from the quilt...

Second stop... TJ's, here I found the the cutest cupcake ceramic jars. When I saw these I was AGAIN doing the running man in my head. I definitely need to get back up there and swipe up a few more for Xmas gifts. What was I thinking not getting others for only $12.99!!

Last stop... Marshall's, Now what is pink and green and cute all over? Watermelons! I found these great Ramekins from Chantal and how cute! When I first saw them wasn't so sure of their purpose but starting reading and they are fabulous. They can be used in the oven, microwave, freezer and are dishwasher safe. I am definitely making cupcakes in these. Retail Price $15.00 sale price $5.50.

Not too bad huh? What do you think?

Hooray for Saturday

Well I have a full day! This afternoon is all about Vineyard Vogue! I have a one or two crafting ideas up my sleeve that I would like to get done for our Preppy Fall Swap. (The upcoming week is super crazy. .. IE: school is starting, dance classes are starting and work is absolutely INSANE... breathe...) Crafting is therapeutic, or may its the wine that goes with it? hmmm Anywho. Then Mr. New shoes (and by Mr. I mean boyfriend who will hopefully be Mr. almost fiance within a few months- keep your fingers crossed girls) are going to Kyoto a Japanese restaurant in the area with some couples. Very excited for the yummy food but not that exciting for the chef to throw white sticky rice at me that I never catch in my mouth however end up picking out of my hair! I'm sure that I will have some entertaining pics to post. Enjoy your Saturday!!

Hills Junkie

Ok...So I must admit...I AM ADDICTED to The Hills. Tonight is the season premier (insert loud teenie bobber scream) and I am stoked!! I think that I love to live vicariously through Lauren Conrad. I think I am her. I should date Brody Jenner... I should live in LA... I should love LO and hate Heidi... I should be a pretty blonde in a size 2. And what about SPEIDI?! Spencer makes me ill and Heidi makes me want to gouge my eye out with a spoon, but yet I can't stop watching them...They are a trainwreck!! An entertaining trainwreck at that.

Another highlight to this Monday....
I have my preppy fall swap partner!! It's Vineyard Vogue and I am so excited! Let's get shopping!!

Count them... 8

So I must say this is the first year that I have been into the olympics. And holy Phelps! There is no doubt in my mind that he is part dolphin...Its amazing. And let's talk about the bodies on those boys.....whew! They could wash their speedos on their stomachs. Well maybe that could be my job, I could do my laundry on those stomachs. Hell I hate doing laundry, but that could seriously give me some motivation!! Props to the US of A!
