This rainbow cake is beyond fantastic! Created by Leah Rosenberg. It's only 1:45 and I've already been filled with sooo much inspiration today.

Book Table.

A book table... um WHAT?! This is quite intriguing. I would be horrified to spill my coffee on it, but what an amazing piece it would be to have in your living room. Found on Design Sponge.

Mini Photoshoot.

Nessa & Me
Words from Ness: "OMG...that what we are going to look like as old ladies! haha and i hope then we are even better friends! ugh love you soo much!" Thanks girl. Love love love!

Tea Party.

The tea party was a success! It was so much fun & I'm glad it was just a few of my closest girl friends. We enjoyed English Breakfast Tea, Homemade Cranberry & Orange Scones, Cucumber Sandwiches, and Sugared Strawberries. Not to mention dressing up & raiding Kelsey's Great Aunts accessories was super! Thanks Kelsey, Vanessa, Leslie, and Kim for making my Sunday afternoon so wonderful!

The Table is Set.

The Ladies of the Party.

Keyhole Pendant.

Brilliant Etsy Find of the Day: this adorable keyhole pendant necklace by Gwen Delicious. Isn't it lovely? It's so great b/c it's like someone must unlock the door to your heart! How sweet! Gwen Delicious also sells the awesome letter press necklaces as seen on Cup of Jo.

Inception (and some).

So I just watched the best movie I've seen ALL SUMMER last night! INCEPTION. It is beyond fantastic! I'm not even kidding. It's suspenseful, thrilling, full of action, excellent acting, incredible music, not to mention the story is Kick-Ass. As soon as it was over I wanted to watch it again. Seriously. Thank you Christopher Nolan. Watch trailer here.

And I know I've gotten really behind on movie updates, and I've seen quite a few lately (adding to my lack of posting) so here's a short preview of some that I enjoyed:

The Last Airbender-- so great! amazzzzzing graphics!
An Education-- wonderful! deserved it's oscar nom & Miss Mulligan too. I also want to wear everything she did.
Eclipse-- the Twilight Saga is getting better... thank goodness.
Predators-- I've never seen the first ones, but this was super cool.
Toy Story 3-- wow- it was sad. really good! but I had a dream my toys were upset I gave them away...
Grown Ups-- surprisingly very clean movie considering the actors. pretty funny.

Perhaps a Promise.

In LOVE with this ring! Although it may be too simple for an engagement ring, perhaps it would be the perfect promise ring or anniversary gift! By Chris Perry on Etsy.

RIP Panda Kitty.

Yesterday was pretty traumatic. I ran over my sister's cat: Panda Kitty. I feel sooo bad. I don't want to go into detail, but it was pretty much the worst feeling ever. My sister is sooo sad- she sais she feels like she lost her best friend. She raised him from a baby kitty. So this post is in memory of him. (photo of Kim with Panda on Easter)

I hope everyone had a lovely 4th. I spent mine working at the pool, lighting fireworks with Cameron's family, and playing cards with my best friends.

Right now I am currently in the midst of planning a tea party with my girl friends who are in town. It's to be a character tea party! We send out the invites with a character description for each person inside to act as during tea time. How much fun does that sound?! I'm super excited. Now just to send out those invites...
