Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Happy Sunday!

"The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age"
-Lucille Ball

 Okay I'm 29, today . . . but wait, isn't that an oxymoron to live honestly AND lie about your age? ha

{ paint }

We have two birthday's in our house this week . . . my son turned 15 on Wednesday and mine is today.
And I have the most incredible daughter who made this two layer chocolate cake, with chocolate butter cream in the middle. It took 3 cake mixes....and yes I'm really loosely interpreting this prompt by saying that she "painted" the design with my favorite color pink frosting. It's the least I could do, after all she spent a lot of time making this, the icing is from homemade AND I didn't have to clean it up either!! Love you Chloe!! xo  



{ green }

Well, I actually had another photo, but blogger refused to load it in it's vertical position, so going with my
second choice. I got this today at Home Depot . . . I always take the opportunity to go with my husband when he needs to run a quick errand and of course I always grab my camera . . .   


{ eyelashes }

Oh, this is my baby . . . just the sweetest standard poodle with beautiful eyelashes. All he has to do it bat those baby browns and he melts my heart!

{sharing with Your Sunday Best}


{ shapes }

I have to admit, this was a last minute, oh yeah I need something with shapes. And I have to say I'm so enjoying these plates that I finally hung on the wall after being in our house for four years. One thing you
should know about me . . . .I'm a plateaholic!! ; )



{ clouds }

Hmmm, not many really incredible clouds this week in my neck of the woods. So I'm using this one from a couple of weeks ago from Galveston Bay after the sunrise. And well, there really aren't any great clouds in this one either, I just liked the glistening water.


If anyone is looking for me, I'll be celebrating my birthday . . . on the beach....trying to break my
hermit crab catch (and release) of last week!! ; ) You're only as old as you feel, right?
When I'm at the beach I only feel like a fifth grader . . . only I can drive.

Have a great Sunday everyone!!
Love, Kim

XO
