Saturday

Last night I went on a lovely little date with my husband. He took me to 518 West which is a cute little Italian restaurant downtown. Afterwards, because he knows me so well, we went to a Frozen Yogurt shop and got dessert! And it was surprisingly mild out so we were able to sit outside on a picnic bench. It was a great end to a long week. :)

I plan on a doing a bit of crafting this weekend too! I bought a candle from Target (my FAV) a few weeks ago and I've finally burned it all that I can. So I'm planning on "melting" out all the other wax, possibly spray painting it, and turning it into a "catch all dish". If it's a success, I'll share it here! And in all likelihood, I'll be working on this project with my new favorite blogger. :)

Finally, I've been on a desperate search for a new blog template. There's a good chance I've already seen everything that is out there but I'm open to any suggestions! I'm looking for clean and simple, and inspired by these colors:


And LASTLY! The Giveaway WINNER is announced!

I usually wear it down with waves or twist my bangs back if they need a trim :)

Congratulations Valerie! And thanks for entering! Please send me an email @ itsthesmallthingsblog@gmail.com so we can arrange the details for your package!

  1. Well, I just started following your blog this week and from this post I see we are neighbors! Fun. I'm in Apex.

    Love your blog. Seriously can't wait for my keratin treatment to wear out so I can try some of your hair tutorials.

  2. Congrats to the winner, but I must admit I'm in the new mood to change up my room again, and also the wall color. LOVE this but maybe a lighter grey.
