This past weekend.

Was filled with a little munchkin, some pampering at the salon and then there was that time I died and went to heaven. Friday I started my weekend off with getting my hair did those roots were getting pretty bad. They had gots to go!

My favorite part is getting my hair washed if I could go there every time I needed my hair washed I totally would. It's so relaxing and sometimes I feel like I could go to sleep. After the pampering we were having a family taco night at my grandpa's house followed by some time at the park, It was a perfect end to a perfect day.

I had some really cute pictures from our family park trip but I have seemed to miss place my camera cord I will be on the search for it. My house was just cleaned so it shouldn't of gotten far)

I also just noticed I have two lavender bushes in my front yard, boy am I slow. But they sure smell amazing!


And remember when I said I went to heaven? Well it was magical it was called the Camas vintage street faire there wasn't as many vendors as I had thought. But it was still gorgeous it was held in the downtown historic tree lined streets of Camas, Washington. I really wish I took more pictures I was just so in awe of all the beauties and the vendors displays. I managed to snap a few with my iphone, But they don't do it justice at all. I managed to score the most beautiful chair I've been looking for that last piece of furniture for my room I had a chair in my mind a similar look to the wing back chairs I have in my living room but a more girly pattern.

They had the cutest eating area in the middle of the intersection with fold out tables,fresh flowers, pretty linens and mix matched chairs. It felt very shabby chic.

I think this is the prettiest old theater I've seen yet. They were playing goonies so it was even better.

Ok now it's time to show you this beauty.

She fits in with my room perfectly. It's the perfect reading chair, I cant wait for rainy fall days listening to the rain fall and getting cosy in this chair.

I highly suggest going to this faire if you live near by or even in Washington. They do it once a year every summer, I wish they did more. But I am defiantly going to be looking out for more vintage faire's maybe during fall there will be some? I hope so!

I hope you all had a great week and start to your week as well.

walla walla part: one

I've been a busy little bee lately, and haven't had the time to sit and blog. A few weeks ago I went on a mini weekend road trip to Walla Walla, Washington with my mom to visit her mom. The drive was just gorgeous and it was hot very hot a very toasty 100. I took tons of pictures to share with you all so this may be a little image heavy.

It was such a fun trip. Our days were spent taking scenic drives and touring old homes. But Sadly I didn't get any from the inside. Also I am pretty sure one of them was haunted. Our nights were spent talking about the old days and going through old photo albums. I tried snapping a few of my favorites.

Ah my grandma's dress.

Look at that wedding dress. I wish I could of had copies of her wedding album it was filled with stunning photographs and my grandpa looked so cute and reminded me a lot of my little brother. One day I will get copies of those though. Well I am pooped out today was a long busy but fun day. Time to go eat me one of my pumpkin spice cupcakes with maple buttercream frosting, recipe post coming soon :)

Today.

cleaningfrenzy

Has been spent tackling my bedroom. A couple days ago I thought it would be a good idea to go through my closet and get rid of some clothes I no longer wear. Since then I've had a give away and keep pile just sitting there just waiting for me to tackle it. And today is the day to finish the job.

In other news I am so excited for this weekend. Tomorrow I will be going on a mini road trip with my mom to Walla Walla, Washington to visit her mom. There will be lots of vintage and antique malls even a lavender farm. I will have all my cameras in hand to document this vacation. I love doing these sorts of things with my mom. She gets my love for all things vintage and antiques I think I get it from her. So to get to spend some quality time on the open road talking and stopping for photo ops along the way. I will be back Monday with a recap of it all. I am back to tackling my bedroom, then packing for my trip.

What can I say I love polka dots.

I love that feeling of putting on a dress that used to be a little snug to now a little loose. It was such a great feeling and will defiantly keep me motivated to going to the gym when I don't want to. Because I know the work I am doing is actually starting to make a difference and it feels uh mazing.

I also wish it wasn't so hot out so I could wear this beanie every day to hide these ugly roots. But I must wait till next Friday to get them fixed up and gone.

This lovely beanie that I do wear when it's not so hot out I got from the lovely Miss Susannah Bean . Her shop is on vacation right now but when she comes back you should defiantly snag one of her hand knitted slouchy beanies.



Also today this pretty little dress from Modcloth arrived on my door step and just in time for my weekend trip to Walla walla, Washington to visit my moms mom. It has a very light airy feeling great for the hot weather were supposed to get there. I have a feeling I will be wearing it a lot this summer.

Do you have a favorite summer dress you always want to wear for days and days?

I hope you all have a lovely summer evening.

Ok are you in love yet? I think me and Rachel ashwell need to become great friends and we can go to flea markets and when I buy a cute house she can help me decorate. Yeah that should happen. But I would just love LOVE to visit someday, I got to thinking how it would be a fun 25th birthday get away maybe. I've never been to Texas but I think it would be fun adventure.

Anywhoo I think two blog post in one day is enough :) enjoy the rest of your day lovelies.
