.fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.


Yes. i finally saw the new Transformers movie last night.
to say it was amazing and completely fantasticly
awesome is the biggest understatment ever.
i fricking loved it.
i don't want to give anything away
but if you liked the first one you must go see it immediately!

i may or may not be completely in love with shia labeouf.

+ megan fox too for that matter.
they are absolute perfection together.

since i already want to see it again
{+ i just got back from the theater last night at midnight}
i am at least listening to the soundtrack.
not all my taste, but at least it reminds me of the movie.
+ there are some gems in there.
i really like this one...




GO + see it immediately.
you won't regret it.


{let's see how long husband will let me get away with a shia screensaver?}

.my sweet, dear husband turns 25 today.
i really can't believe it.
i was dating him when he turned 16.
thats 10 birthdays that i have shared with him.
but i still can't get used to the idea that he is
a quarter of a century old.
he's such a kid at heart.


+ the fact that he is wearing my favorite carebear
on his shirt in this picture
just confirms that we are so meant for each other.

i love you so much bubby.
can't wait to celebrate with you!

i hope our kids have his curly hair.
off to spend the day with our fantastic dads.

.it's braid wednesday.

you do know what braid wednesday is,
don't you?
only the best flickr group ever.


{+ mine}

i have always loved braids.
i constantly braided my hair as a kid
because it's the only way i knew to do my hair.
this from a girl who couldn't even do a ponytail
without a rooster sticking up in front
{something i still get teased about}.
but braids are my friend.
i love them.

do you wear braids?
inspiration is just a click away.
