:: a new scarf
:: my brideblu necklace (from payitforward) and the necklace Reni sent to me (you.are.the.best.)
:: martini's (i think that was my first one)
:: crackers and cheese
:: bama, of course =)

Diana Mieczan said...

Great job with the cupcakes and both of your necklaces look adorable, sweetie! I've been enjoying fresh strawberries lately and my two cuddly puppies! Hugs and kisses

Kristina said...

Self-made cupcakes as well (with raspberries and cream cheese), Aperol Spritz and my new pink pants :)

Gracie said...

The way you placed your photos is so cool and creative. Cheese and crackers are one of my fave things to snack on. Yay for cupcakes and necklaces and sweet dogs.

A beautiful scarf. Oh, cupcakes are really in..here..my friend makes them and puts strawberries on top when she brings them to work. I just can't bake like she can. Of course, I blame it all on our old oven.

Its suddenly in the 90's here. Shocker.

This is so cool....

Oh, sleeping late would be on my list, but I don't get to do that. Trying to find all those summer dresses and skirts now. Its getting hot and humid now.

Its easy to get published I'm sure..if you are the right celb..thats in the market for books.

Teenage Bride said...

cupcakes and puppies make everyone happy!

Gina said...

I would like to cuddle up with that adorable pup while eating the cupcake..... then later id like to eat cheese and crackers while drinking a martini. It would have to be a yummy coconut flavor or something though.... the plain olive flavor is iccckkkkkley to me! :)

Congrats on baking cupcakes! It is on of my fave activities. HAPPY TUESDAY Krystal!

Oh, My Darling said...

Oh, you and your triangles!

linzie said...

Your cupcakes look much better than my first attempt. Shame buying the ingredients in globus doesn't make them globus standards *sigh*

Vanilla - notes from my closet said...

I adore crackers and cheese! you have such a cute puppy :)

Love, Vanilla

I love your beautiful collage of favorite things! And believe me, I know how hard the first batch of cupcakes can be, I'm still a little shaky on that--but so delicious no matter how they look! Love your list, I will have to ponder this, but food, friends, and my kitties are definitely on mine :)

Julia Falci @Broken Project said...

what a beautiful dog! I love your necklace as well :)

Bella Bheag said...

Simple pleasures do it for me every time. Example of which would be - a sunny day, some gardening, some berry picking, then jam making and cake baking and rounded off with card-making. Bliss!

Erica said...

Seriously, there is nothing quite like a delicious cupcake with some ice cold milk! I love all if your picks ; )

Such a cool post, Krystal! I'm surprised that's a scarf.. I thought it was just a cool design you made to go along with your post!

I'm loooving the book I'm reading and spending time out on the balcony reading it & skyping with friends.. also on the balcony! This weather is doing wonders for me!

Alena said...

What perfect items to enjoy. I'm enjoying being back home in my own bed and nighttime tea :)

The cupcake looks good! I'm going to try to make pop tarts this weekend so I'll be enjoying those over the weekend (assuming they turn out well).
