life | fantastic weekend

This past weekend couldn't have turned out any better...
it was the perfect combination of productive AND relaxing:

• Quality time at home baking my favorite chocolate chip cookies...
(okay...actually it was J who was baking them as I was instructing him on the how-to). *wink*

• Lots of design work...
• A couple of movies...
• A photo shoot of the Popcorn Bar I had initially attempted at the Family Reunion the weekend before.

I LOVE the results.
I can only share a little peek because the photos are being used in an upcoming publication...
but I just HAD to share a couple...

Don't those popcorn balls look adorable on The Pastry Pedestal™!?
I'm pretty sure I squeal out loud every time I try something new with them.
Yes...I get excited over the silliest things I guess.
Like yesterday...after everything was set-up for the photoshoot...
I stepped back to take a final look before grabbing the camera...
and...
well...
I squealed outloud because it was SO cute!

I hope you find something, do something, or create something today...
that makes YOU squeal outloud with pure giddiness!!

Winning the Modern Frills giveaway should make one of you squeal outloud...
so don't forget to enter to win before Thursday!!

Here's to a fantastic week filled with lots of squeals for us all! *wink*

KEEPiNG iT REAL
Even though I waited until the end of the day to do the photo shoot...
it was still like being in a convection oven outside.
By the time it was all said and done...
I felt sick to my stomach - face beet red...maybe a little heat exhaustion?!
(But it REALLY was worth it). *wink*

AND...I could NOT have done ANY of the things I mentioned
this weekend without the tremendous help and support from J!!! xo

Jess,
I love the idea of a popcorn bar!! Your signage is great and the pedestals are just adorable with the popcorn balls on them!!

Can't wait to see the whole shoot!
(and yes, it's been ridiculously hot out)

I would be excited too if I pulled all that together. Glad to see someone was productive this weekend!
