miscellany monday.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
{1} my favorite earrings are from ukraine... i have had them since i was 15- and i love them. i wear them all the time because they go with everything [or so i try to convince myself].
 [notice the jewelry tree? i just love it- my jewelry looks like ornaments on the tree!]

{2} the skinner girls always have "rainbow chip cookies"... that's what we all call them- but i just love them. we used to always have a snack when we got home from school (because we carpooled... so sweet) and now when i go to their house i grab one from the jar- it is tradition.

{3} lemonade is my absolute favorite drink for the summer time [or really anytime... but especially for the summer]. it is also a staple when nannying for two little ones- we went through a lot of crystal light last week. it also comes in little packets that you can take with you for the water bottle. love it.

{4} i have a specific seat in the kitchen. it has always been my seat and i'm not too great at sharing... so it still bothers me when people sit in it when i am home and i have to adjust... i know that this is ridiculous, but it is just a fact of life. i'm working on it.

{5} i'm getting ready to do some major painting to some furniture for my apartment... the paint has been purchased and i am all geared up to paint- can't wait for this restoration- i'll be sure to take pictures!

{6} listening to classical music helps me focus... right now i am listening to it as i write- i am also finding myself type to the tune of the music- which is very interesting to hear.

{7} i finally went fishing! we went out last thursday after i got out of work- it was wonderful! i didn't catch anything [though i did feed some fish with my bait, you're welcome fish...], sean caught one red and truman caught two reds... though i did have a great time! so i guess that's the most important part!

{8} my birthday is in exactly one week and one day... i haven't really thought too much about my birthday, but i am pretty excited! fun fact: truman (pictured above, holding fish) and i have the same birthday... though we are 49 years apart!

have a happy monday- make sure to link up and post some random!

just a thought. 


  1. Happy early birthday :) I hope you will have an amazing day!

    I love rainbow cookies. My best friend and I have a similar tradition. For some reason her mom always makes her special apple pie when I am around - in the beginning it was by accident, now she makes it when she knows I will stop by just because ;)

    I love Cristal light, but I decided to just stick to water this summer. I was told it was healthier - bummer

    Have an amazing week,

  2. Hello my fellow Cancer! ;) Love your miscellany!!! I love summer drinks!! Pink Lemonade & sweet tea is my favorite! Although I drink sweet tea year round! AND that is so awesome that you went fishing!! I also love listening to classical music to focus. I like to listen to it while I clean :P

    Have a great day!!! <333

  4. I love lemonade, too! I mix it into my sweet tea and it's just so yummy!
    Hope your birthday is lovely!

  5. I love those earrings! I love drinking lemonade and ice tea in the summer. I like to drink Arnold Palmer (lemonade mixed with ice tea). Now, I am thirsty! Have a great Monday!

  6. Those earrings are pretty! I'm a Nanny, too...well sometimes. I definitely must have some lemonade tonight!

  7. Hi!! Happy almost birthday!! :) I type to the beat of my music as well. It always makes me laugh! I am stopping by for MM! I hope you can swing on by and say hi! :) I am also following your super cute blog!
