Another Lovely Day <3

Not only is it a fabulous, sunny, 80 something degree day here...it has also been super full of fun! I woke up early and bagged up all of the items that Adam and I pulled for our garage sale (lots of stuff), cleaned the living room, and straightened up the kitchen. Adam, worked on all of our dishes, the laundry, and cleaning out our closet. A very productive morning. At around eleven, my mom came by with the CRV and we loaded everything up to store in her garage until the sale. After the unloading Adam and I decided to treat my mom to Jilly's Cupcake Bar. She has never been to a cupcake bar but we knew she would looooove it. We tried the Strawberry Cheesecake cupcake, the Dreamsicle cupcake, the Turtle Cupcake, and, of course, The Twisted Red Velvet...delicous!! This is all that is left of the cupcakes :D

I am slowly savoring the Red Velvet cupcake :)
When we got home I was bombarded with Happy Mail!!! Yes, I am truly looking forward to checking the mailbox these days...I love it! I got the most beautiful postcard from Guatemala from my lovely friend, Katie:

I collect postcards and I did not have any from Guatemala which makes it even cooler!! Katie, by the way, is a very amazing woman and I am soooo lucky to have her as a friend :) We used to teach together and then she became the world's greatest Arbonne consultant and is able to stay home with her gorgeous little Guatemalan :) Check out her blog to read more about her and the mission trip that she just took to Guatemala :)
I also recieved a new bracelet from the Invisible Children campaign that I am part of!

What I would give to be able to go on a mission trip to Africa!!
Next up, a fun fun Xo5 package from Kimi!!!

I loooove everything that was in it. It is representative of her five favorite things :) I am sooo lucky to have Kimi as a bestie!! Thank you Kimi for the amazing package :) I adore it and I am already wearing the chapstick :)
Also, my RVA package came! Yay!

my favorites are these ACEO's by Elsie and Rachel...love them.

And speaking of the ACEO's, I decided to store them in my vintage Holy Cute album that I also got from RVA:

Well, I was so inspired by all of the great mail that I recieved that I decided to get crafty myself :)
I did some painting:

and made some scupty charms of two of my most favorite foods :) Soft pretzels and cupcakes...yummy!

I am soooo digging the rhinestone salt on the pretzels. I think that I want to share the Happy Mail wealth with my readers so...who wants a charm?? Let me know! First come, first serve :)
I loooooove my readers
I am going to try and talk Adam into helping me do the second coat of cake batter in the living room. I can't WAIT to get all of that painting done and all of the furniture put back in it's place...wish me luck :)
bye <3
