So let's get down to business shall we?
#1. Eastbound and Down- The newest comedy addition to HBO is freakin HILARIOUS. You know any show that has Will Ferrell and Adam McKay as exec. producers is going to be golden. PLUS mullets galore. Between that and the crazy benders and obscenties flying out of Kenny Powers mouth, this show was meant for me.
#2. Metallica "Sad But True"- You know those songs that you hear and you are instantly sucked back in time, Sad But True does it for me. I heard it when I was picking Zoe girl up from school the other day and instantly I was transported to 1995, inside a tiny red Sprint, driving around town with my best friend Jamie, pissed off at the world. GOOD TIMES GOOD TIMES, huh Jame!
#3. Dry Soda Co.- Prepare your mouth for a whole new experience! With soda flavors such as vanilla bean, juniper berry, lavender (my fave!), lemongrass, kumquat and rhubarb...your tongue will surely thank you for trying it! Now picture a splash of lavender soda with a few fingers of vanilla vodka and a sprig of dried lavender as a garnish...and you have one of my sisters and my favorite drinks! Here are a few recipes I found off their site:
3 oz. Vanilla Bean DRY Soda
2 oz. vodka
1 oz. orange juice
1 oz. cranberry juice
Garnish: orange wedge
Half-fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add vodka, orange juice, cranberry juice and shake well
Strain and pour over ice into glass
Add DRY Soda, stir and garnish
3 oz. Vanilla Bean DRY Soda
1 oz. Irish Whisky
1 oz. Irish Cream
1 oz. Kahlua
Serve: chimney glass
Garnish: sugar rim
Half-fill a cocktail shaker with ice
Add whisky, Irish Cream and Kahlua and shake well
Strain mixture into prepared chimney glass over ice, add Vanilla Bean DRY and stir.
1 1/2 oz. Raspberry Vodka
3/4 oz. Chambord
1/4 oz. Lime Juice
5 oz. Lavender DRY Soda
Garnish: Fresh Raspberries
Half fill a cocktail shaker with ice
Add raspberry vodka, Chambord and lime juice. Shake well.
Place raspberries and ice in glass. Add mixture from shaker.
Top with Lavender DRY Soda and stir gently.
#4. Obsidian Dawn, Dafont.com, Jason Gaylor and DeviantArt- If you are looking for some awesome photoshop brushes and/or fonts. These are my go to places. LOVE them all. Have yourself some fun doing some downloading today!!
#5. My Scrappy Fave of the Week- Prima cardboard! OMG this stuff if FANTASTIC. I love using cardboard in my scrapbooking and the fact that these beauties are printed makes it all the better!

#2. This scrapbook room- I can't remember where I even found this pic or whose room it is ...I am thinking it was off Modish but am not positive. But I want to duplicate this wall!
#3. Sew Hip by Shannon Mulden- I got this idea book from C&T Publishing. It is just jam packed with all sorts of cute sewing projects that should be just right for a newb like me. I am really wanting to make some cute belts and a hand bag!#4. Little Window Shop- One stop spot for any crafty being. First off the design of the site is ADORABLE, I love the colors and the easy navigation. It has everything from crafts, and recipes and etsy highlights... I love it and it is quickly becoming one of my every day haunts.
#5. Scrappy Fave of the Week- Now this isn't actually a scrapbooking something persay but check out this hot etsy site UMECRAFTS and tell me if her felt work is not some of the cutest and well put together felty goodness ever! Now they are just patterns, which is kinda a bummer because I know I could NEVER get mine to look this good. But there is no denying her talent! I can totally see using some of her patterns in altered art.
Ok so that is what I have for ya folks. The postman did NOT drop off my Bad Girls package so I must wait another stinkin day. UGH. I am NOT a patient person. Have a fabulous Friday!
