{Madewell Blogger Event}

On July 15th, you will find me at Town Center Plaza. Why? The Madewell blogger event is from 5-7 PM, and I simply refuse to miss it.

Don’t be fooled, though! Even though it’s called the Madewell blogger event, it’s open to anyone that RSVPs to the fabulous Meggy of Chasing Davies.

What are you in for if you RSVP? A peek at new arrivals, fashion previews, discounts, giveaways, and *drum roll, please* a Madewell braid bar!

To RSVP, visit Meggy’s blog and shoot her an email. And don’t forget to connect with Madewell on Facebook and Twitter! Hope to see you there!



I have recently found myself loving balloons. I did not plan to revert to childhood like this, but it snuck up on me! Of course, I have to blame this on someone, and I choose (1) A Subtle Revelry (featuring The Red Balloon Photography), (2) The Red Balloon Photography–they have so many reasons on their website to blame them that I had to do it twice, (3) Kate Spade, and (4) sfgirlbybay (featuring Amber Karnes).

Here are some of the incredible images they have featured and created lately. I hope you enjoy them!

Aren’t they all lovely? They all make me so excited for warm, breezy days! What images do you associate with Spring and Summer days?

BONUS! (I couldn’t help it!)

Ice Cream Sunday

I know, I know…I missed posting yesterday, but I had a good reason! I didn’t feel like it. And also, we were with family in Iowa (have been since Wednesday because my hubby’s Grandmama passed away). I posted every other day that we were there! So, I may have missed posting one day, but I still count it as a personal victory. Besides, all you missed was “Saturday Snapshot,” which is not necessarily earth shattering bliterature–that’s blog literature = bliterature–however, I will include it in this post to make up for it. 

First thing’s first: Ice Cream Sunday.

 I made the Mexican Chocolate Cookies that I linked to last week, and they were ridiculously delicious. Like spicy little chocolate snaps. *mouth waters* If you haven’t checked out that recipe, do! You won’t be disappointed! This week, I want to share a summery dessert because the days are officially getting longer and warmer days are on their way: Hershey’s aptly named “Chocolate Raspberry Dessert.” In case it isn’t clear, it tastes of chocolate and raspberries and should be filed under the “Dessert” section of your home cookbook.

Raspberries are God’s gift to man, and should be enjoyed as often as possible. I plan to make this dessert during the week and gain at least 5 pounds before next week’s Ice Cream Sunday. If you try it out, let me know how it goes!

Second thing’s second: Saturday Snapshot.

Since it’s not quite Saturday, I’m going to post something that’s not quite a snapshot. This is a short video featuring a little fishy with big dreams. He lives in the Baltimore National Aquarium, and we met back in October 2010 (when I shot the video). Take a looksie here!

Update 1: There seems to be a problem with my Little Fishy, Big Dreams video on Vimeo. I’m working on it and will let you know when it’s up and running!

Update 2: Little Fishy, Big Dreams is up and running on Vimeo!
