What's Making Me Smile

 Chocolate cupcakes...yum

This week has been a really great from last week's crazy schedule. I've been able to actually get some sleep and feel good enough to start school back on Tuesday. Tonight me and the boyfriend are having a little stay at home date night. He's making dinner and I'm taking stuff over to bake brownies...oh and I'm bringing vanilla ice cream. Don't you think brownies straight out of the oven are the best with ice cream? The rest of the weekend will probably be spent hanging out at the fair. I plan on getting on all the rides, my favorite one is back this year and eating everything that's bad for me like foot long corn dogs, turkey legs, funnel cakes, lemonade, & a bunch of bbq. Yeah, I'm so not being healthy this weekend but hey I'll be happy :)  Here are a few other things making me smile right now.

 Getting more items ready for my etsy shop. 
I'm shooting for Monday...I'll let you all know :)

 This lavender macaroon candle has been burning in my room lately. 
After buying a few good scents about a week & a half ago from Bath & Body Works, I went to buy some more the other day. This one is my favorite!
Being done with this dress.  I didn't win the competition but it's okay, my sewing skills are not at their best. This is what I was making the fake fur for...a lot of hours of weaving yarn through netting. Honestly, I didn't care about winning, I just wanted to finish. It's the first dress I've actually made...so happy :)
