Show Me Your (fill-in-the-blank)!

13 May

Good morning, all!

Today I’m going to take a page out of my buddy Ang’s book. She found the coolest idea yesterday on Luxe Chandelier, and I’m going to shamelessly copy it. (Thanks, Ang!)

Make sure to check out her site, Football, Sushi and the Pursuit of Happiness. (Personally, I love sushi, I love pursuing happiness… not so big on the football.) She’s a total sweetheart, and her blog is so refreshing to read.

Here’s the link to the post that started it all at Luxe Chandelier:

So here it is: I will post pictures of anything you ask for (within reason, people!). Just leave me a comment on this post, saying what you’d like me to take a picture of. Wanna see something in Cancun? Something of mine? My BFF? Part of my day-to-day existence? You say it, and I’ll make it happen.

This is your chance to tell me what to post. So take advantage! I’m really excited to hear about what you wanna see 🙂

In other news, last night I made 2 coffee filter pomanders that I mentioned in yesterday’s post. I had to do a bunch of different color tests, but I finally found 2 colors for my wedding that are absolutely AMAZING. STUNNING. GORGEOUS. Roll over, Martha Stewart.

I’m not gonna lie… I’ve always been jealous of those craft bloggers (you know who you are!) who get a piece of moldy dormroom furniture from Craigslist then turn it into some shabby-chic piece of fine furnishings. Now it’s my turn! My first craft project 🙂 I’ll have a step-by-step post up and running by sometime next week.

Calorie Counting with Gringation

Wednesday, May 12: 1222 (Gold star!!)

2 cups of strawberry, blueberry and blackberry mixed

Chocolate chip cookie

Small salad with 1000 island dressing and jicama

Mashed Potatoes

Jamaica water

Corn Pops

2 large quesadillas with mixed cheese and spinach

One thing’s for sure… I need to step it up on the protein so I can avoid more evenings of binging on creamy peanut butter straight from the jar. That was a low point.

Let me know what you want me to take pictures of! I’ll try to step up my photography skills for this one, I promise.

    What’s your favourite place to sit and take in the view? Your most treasured possession? And something that makes you think of home?

    And I really want to make a pomander now!

    I am going to have to go be friends with your friend Ang now because all of the things listed in her blog title are my favorites.

    I’m so glad the pomanders worked out for you, you crafty girl!!

    What an awesome idea! I want to see your neighborhood, your work place and a place where you spend most of your time…outside of work and home. 🙂

    And I can’t wait to see your pomanders!

    Your favorite food you’ve discovered since moving to Cancun, and the one thing (outside of anything living) that you would grab from your apartment during a fire.
