Things I Love Thursday

Sorry for missing TiLT last week! I was in a tizzy as my flight to San Francisco had been cancelled and I needed to quickly figure out what was going on. I wanted to get it up and going but by the time I boarded my new flight I was ready to just forget about the world for a while! I'm halfway through my insane bar work week and I'm looking forward to the finish line. We've also got some Honeybean events lined up for the next two weekends so if you're in the area, be sure to come out and see us! Anyway, here's what I'm loving this week!

this is a beautiful photo ♥
this lake looks like a strawberry milkshake!

this baby frenchie ♥

these sculptures by casey riordan ♥
this birthday pug ♥
this bubble gum machine! ♥

No Instagram favorites this week as I don't have 3G signal in my hometown sooooo I can't access my IG to even see what I've "liked" haha! Hope you have a great Thursday, friends! We're headed down to see Mike's family and celebrate Father's Day early! 


  1. Omg, you used to work at an elephant sanctuary. That is so amazing!

    Good Morning Angel.

    1. I thought the same thing!It's amazing!

      Should write about that someday

  2. I love that lake! I was reading the wiki on it earlier, def want to visit some day.

  3. This TiLT post was worth the wait. I love that first photo of the reflection of the girl reading - it's perfect. Also loving that bubble gum machine and it's giving me ideas for my upcoming wedding :) Hope the rest of your week goes least you have a lovely leisurely light at the end of the tunnel to look forward to :)

  5. not trying to sound like a smartass, but you can always access your Instagram through segregator sites like (there's a whole bunch of them, I just prefer this one) Comes really handy when mobile internets are acting up (or pretty slow and expensive like here in Russia) You can't post your own pics, though...

    Oh. And have a nice day!! ^^

    1. I normally use Webstagram but I've yet to find anywhere on that site that allows you to view the photos that you've personally liked. :)

  6. Those nutella cookies look so good! x

  7. I love it all!! That pink river is SO cool!!

  8. I love the lake & the 7 year old conversation thing!


  9. Mmm I want M&M's now hahaha. Also, elephants are awesome!!

  10. that is such a neat way to celebrate anniversaries! and i wish i could drink that pink lake :)
    excited to be your newest follower :)

  11. Nice TiLT post! I put write one letter a month on my 25 before 26 list because writing one a week is way too ambitious for me haha. Letter writing is so awesome but I am always putting it last so hopefully putting it on my list will give me motivation...or guilt! Have a great rest of the week!

    the lemonade stand
