Happy Thursday, friends! This week is both flying by and creepin', as if that were even possible! I'm getting ready to saddle up and head over to the tattoo shop to have some color put on my shins! I've been putting off color since I started my shins back in September because I'm terrified that I won't like them, and the outlines are so pretty, but it'll be nice to wrap them up and move onto the next piece. Anyway, here's my lovely list of wonderful things! Extra long this week since last week's was so brief! xo

Other Awesome Things:
// I really love Dottie Angel's entire Flickr photostream. Seriously. Love.
// Beca and Doug of Tumbleweeds are having a Spring Pre-sale right now! Check out how you can save 20% on your favorite wooden sunnies! I love having such talented friends!
// Elyse never ceases to inspire me with her outfits! This one is no exception... except, well, my hips would never fit! haha Such a beautiful dress!
// You'd be surprised how much my hair is in a nappy top knot bun, so I love finding easy to do hair tutorials that make being "presentable" less of a hassle. Christen of Two Happy Hearts has two rad how-tos! Here's a Beehive Ponytail and a Messy Bun w/ headscarf!
// Amber of The Sofisticate blogged about some pretty unreal tights the other day! Oh my stars, they're neat!
// Roxy shared some Instagrams from her week spent snowboarding in Colorado. Check out the first picture! It's really really beautiful! I've never been snowboarding (or seen more than a couple inches of snow!) so I'd be kind of wonderstruck!
// Monika at Today I... is giving away a really pretty headband! The giveaway is open until the 26th and there's only 2 entries so far! Your chances are high to win if you head over and enter!
// Aileen is feeling a little under the weather right now (Get well soon, lady!) but she did recently share her birthday spent at Disneyland! Oh how I wish I could spend my birthday next month with Mickey and Minnie!
// Ever wondered what you might wear if you were to do a bellydance performance?! This rad pink-haired gal clues you in!
// Metallic gold sweater? Navy pants? Bright red socks? Leopard platforms? YES YES YES and YES! Virginie is basically the most adorable girl in the world.
// Charlie styled up a chambray shirtdress 5 different ways by tucking it into various skirts! The outcome is super adorable (all 5 ways!) and definitely different!
// Can we talk about things I want in my closet now?! Ugh! THESE amazing leopard print SPIKY loafers! Swoon! -- These very very Flintstones shoes! -- This tartan BJ dress (+ I'd pair it with my tartan JC Litas, too. Just kidding. That's too tacky! Pfft. Yeah right.) -- A few perfumes to round out my vanity: Marc Jacobs Lola, Marc Jacobs Daisy, and Burberry Touch.
// And now some sweet eats: Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake (say that 5 times fast!) -- Orecchiette with Greens, Mozarella + Chickpeas! -- I have died and gone to sweet potato heaven with these Roasted Sweet Potato Skewers with a Cilantro-Jalapeno Aioli Dip. OMG. -- and everything about these Roasted Baby Spring Veggies looks duhhhhlish!
// If you're feeling crafty: Make your own tiny envelopes (perfect for giftcards!) -- This upcycled furniture into kid's toys! Soooo cute! -- Felt food tutorials! Eep! -- and lastly, DIY Striped Drapes... these are especially gorgeous!
// Normally I would've posted this with the other recipes, but Kasey's cupcakes in a jar (with CARAMEL!) were entirely too good to group with something else! It's almost midnight right now and I think my hunger is showing... Oops!
// And Jacqueline made heart shaped three cheese RAVIOLI! Seriously, all things are better when in the shape of a heart. All things.
// I meant to share these two weeks ago but Amy had some free Valentine's printables over on her blog! I say print them out and give them away year round! Love is too precious to save for one day!
Is your brain blown by all of the awesome yet!?
