June Top 10

New 10 for June:

Sorry for the delay... I was living it up in Louisville with my favorite baby girl and best friends... so without further ado~

1. So You Think You Can Dance
The new season just started and I am already doing awkward leaps in my living room during the commercial breaks.  If you have never cared for reality TV, this show might change your mind.  SYTYCD is beautifully choreographed dancers in perfect movement, perfect costumes, set to the most perfect music.

2.  Tree houses
  Become a kid again and climb a tree!  Cheekwood in Nashville has recently built some pretty cool ones.

3.  Double Doozies
Yes please. Indulge. I know I did this weekend, and with the help of Kristan you can make your own.

4.  Flea Markets
I have always been a fan, but even more so now that I was on the other side of the flea this past weekend.  It was fun being a vendor and getting to tell people to stop taking pictures of my map desk if they weren't going to buy :)

5.  Fish Tail Braid
I'm still trying to master this one still... but I'm thinking I should maybe add the pastel to distract from my imperfect braiding.

6.  One Thousand Gifts 
This book was going to be my number 6.  But honestly I couldn't get through it.  If you have read it let me know... I need some advice on how or why I should keep reading it.

 7. Star Girl
quickly replaced One Thousand Gifts and quickly became one of the most interesting books I have read.  It should bring out the quirky qualities in all of us.

8.  Did I mention I'm lactose-intolerant?


9.  Abiella is officially a McConnell!!!
Check out the McConnell's journey of bringing home their daughter from Ghana, HERE.

10. Birthdays! 
Happy Birthday Mom and Courtney!  Let the celebrations begin!


  1. I love flea markets too, anything old vintage or handmade and I'm all about it. Thanks so much for linking up to The Cure for the Common Monday... So great to have you, xoxo

  2. Congrats to the McConnell's! About number 8.....IT.IS.AMAZING.

    1. I know! I'm so happy for them! And you are right- number 8 it AMAZING... but i am out of control so they need to hurry up and take it away! :)
