I'm Walking on Sunshine!

Cheers to the Weekend!

our beach day at Huntington Beach, CA
(improving photography by The Tiny Librarian)

The reason for the title of this post is two-fold.
(Not counting the fact that I love that song by Katrina and the Waves...interesting performer name)
First, I am enjoying the sunny California weather while it is storming back home in NOLA.  :)
At least my mom won't have to water my plants for me!

Second, I want to thank Lauren @ Warm and Fuzzy for nominating me for the Sunshine Award!
I am so excited about my first blogger award!
You are the best, Lauren!  I wouldn't be here {in blogosphere} without your help and encouragement.
She is the epitome of craftiness, sweetness, and all things pretty. :)
Check out her party design in action for her son's birthday, a Barnyard Bash themed party, here
Everything was handmade by Mrs. Warm & Fuzzy herself. 
And, how CUTE is this chair!?!
Use her simple tutorial on cutifying a chair! 
 I can't wait for her to cutify my librarian's chair at work.
I don't know how she does it. She has more creativity in her pinky finger than I do in my entire body!
I will be featuring her on Tiny's Trendy Tuesday soon with her new statement necklace!
