blogs and photography

when i first started exploring blogs i fell in love with vegan blogs. i myself am a pescetarian (who randomly eats fish) i actually identify more with vegetarians. i love vegan blogs because they are so creative with their meals. and some make the most delicious looking food! recently i started falling in love with vintage clothing and found all sorts of fashion blogs. i find myself getting lost in different blogs all the time. i seem to find a few new and exciting blogs everyday. i love photography... you can find so many random and unique photographs online and in different blogs. here are a few of my favorite collected over time... (i think most of these photos ive found through random google searches so im not sure where they came from exactly... so if they are your photos and you would like me to link them to you or take them down please let me know) :) ...shoes... Photobucket Photobucket ...cute puppies... Photobucket Photobucket ...other randomness... Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

killing time... waiting for coffee...

i got my first comment from someone i DONT know... exciting stuff! haha i love recycling, i believe its just something we need to do. ever since ive started recycling my motto is, if it can be recycled it will be recycled! well, ill be the first to admit i can get lazy sometimes! so my cute recycling bin (that my mom got me) starts to over flow sometimes. SOO today i spent the whole day cleaning and taking things out of the house and putting them into their proper bin. i am too too excited that my house is so clean right now. when the house is clean it just makes me smile, i feel so grown up! hahaha now im watching the TLC channel about amazingly tall children, surfing the internet and waiting for my friend katie to get off work so we can go get coffee and do some girly chatting.

i fallen in love with coffee all over again

so im on this new eat healthy kick. which means i drink a smoothie instead of coffee each morning for breakfast. Photobucket i dont really miss the coffee too much until about 230/3 o'clock in the afternoon when my computer screen starts getting really foggy cause i cant seem to keep my eyes open! so i bought those new via instant coffee packets from starbucks to try, a friend said they are delish and she was so correct! i dont know how efficient it would be if i wasnt in my office (cause i love cream and sugar) but for an afternoon snack/ pick me up they are just wonderful. and taste amazing yikes, thats all i need... a new addiction! haha
