a celebration with a cherry on top

We celebrated some fun stuff on Saturday over a spectacular sundae. It was well deserved & Avery definitely wasn't complaining. :)
(cute headbands my sister makes)
I'll post the winner of the fabric onesie sometime today... speaking of fabric I ♥ these fabric journals spotted today at one of my favorite blogs Oh Joy! found at the freshly blended etsy shop. I wouldn't mind the whole collection stacked on my bookcase. :)

(Tuesday+me=American Idol)

Who's your fave? I like Adam Lambert, Matt Giraud, Danny Gokey, Allison & I do love Megan Joy's voice. It's definitely the guys' year of AI though.

PS I'm not gonna lie-I miss Norman and those legs. ;)

Ok, I have to vent about AI since you brought it up and everything. I am soooo on the fence about Adam Lambert. I thought he was flat out disgusting during country week with the "Ring of Fire" grossness, but last week I couldn't believe how amazing he was. It was like a totally different person up there. Loved the song, and the Elvis clean cut look. And Megan Joy is the most darling little thing I have ever seen, I just want to hug her all day with that half sleeve tat she's got goin on.

hi rosemary,
i hear ya about the 'ring of fire' performance. i didn't get it at all!
ditto-love Megan's whole vibe!

Lindsay Bateman said...

That sundae looks delicious! Love the headband...your sister is very talented! As for AI...so may great ones, all the ones you named are definitly at the top of my list. I cannot believe Matt was in the bottom last week...he is uber talented!

emily said...

i just have to ask...
does your creativity come naturally or did something in your life spark it? and, of all the beautiful things you do, what is your favorite? sewing? scrapping?...
i love your stuff. you have inspired me to pull out the 'ol sewing machine. i just finished my first quilt! yeah!

Judy said...

Holy Canoli that sundae is HUUUUUGE!! but it looks so YUM!!
Did you manage to finish it all?
Just love those fabric covered books and your sister makes the wonderfullest (is that a word LOL?)
headbands.

Jenna said...

Well around MIlwaukee, Danny is pretty much everyone's favorite! Finally Wisconsin is represented well!

Emilyt said...

Go Matt Giraud! Team Michigan here! :) He is under- appreciated. I've liked him the best since the competition started with the top 12. Can't wait to see what he does tonight!

Nikki said...

My fave is definitely Danny Gokey - he's from Milwaukee (right by me) so I have to cheer him on! I also love Matt Giraud and Adam and Allison...oh, and I like Kris. I just heart American Idol...tried out twice but did not make it:(.

Rachel said...

Oh my goodness. I want...no take that back, NEED that sundae NOW!!

Lisa said...

Yummy looking sundae! Adam Lambert is my favorite. I don't understand what was so awful about his Ring of Fire performance. It was different, but it shows his range. Then last week he came out looking like the cutie next door. He can mix it up. His cd's and concerts will certainly be entertaining! I love Megan Joy too. She's adorable and has a popular sound. It's definately a good AI season!

Mmmmm... That sundae looks amazing. Of course - ice cream is my WEAKNESS!!!
That head band is really cute.

And U Jest said...

WOW that sundae sure looks yummy....i would love to eat that right now... but trying to lose weight for a wedding dress.

Leavitt Family said...

Can I ask where you got the sundae? It simply looks too delish! I would love to take my boys there for one.

stephanie howell said...

a. wish harper wasn't allergic to everything so we could do stuff like that together.
b. wish i wasn't so spazzy and that i could pull off one of those headbands.
c. norman's legs? HA! so you like guys in sweatbands, huh??
d. LOVE matt giraud and i kind of try to make out with the tv when kris comes on. don't tell anyone. wow. jimmy needs to come home.

Megan IS a beauty. She reminds me of a cake topper...she kind of wiggles around on stage without moving her feet. She should wear one of those flower headbands. Matt is my fave, but we already have a Justin Timberlake?!?! Danny would make a really great gospel album one day. And although Adam "conformed" last week, he really belongs in theater. He is talented. I am in an AI poll at my school/work. I am at the bottom of the list(which is not where the winners are)... I really need to step it up this week. I sit on the couch with a clipboard and my own personal rating scale. Can you tell this game is serious?

maribeth said...

i think danny is probably my fave, but you listed the same ones i look forward to hearing. i definitely dig meghan joy's voice. while i think a guy will win, i would buy anything meghan sang. we shall see . . .

ShanaH said...

I have Matt, Danny and Anoop on my top three! I'm on the line about Adam after Ring of Fire :)

Amber said...

I loved norman gentle too!! :)

Jess said...

that sundae lookz so yumm.. i feel like one rite now :( lolz

Hayley said...

Kris is my fav!!! I love Megan's voice and vibe, I think she could make a great album! This season I think they had a great finals cast. Im not that fond of Anoop and Scoot though.

kira lee said...

love the headbands!!! and the journals!!!
...and that ice cream sundae doesn't look too bad either!

Jane said...

Oh those journals are almost as delicious as the sundae!!! YUM!

Tiffany said...

Okay to this preggo that Sundae looks heavenly =) And by the look on Avery's face I would say I am right! hehe!

I love Idol!!!! I love how unique Megan Joy's voice is although she hasn't been doing that well. It makes me sad! I would so buy her album! I do love me some Danny though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I am stalking your sister's etsy site trying to decide which headband I am going to buy!

emily said...

matt's my favorite!
megan joy is a close second, although i do think her song choices have been horrible?! what's up with that?

cute headband :)

lexsmama said...

You know, I haven't followed AI that much this season until recently. But, I'm going back and forth between Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey. I'm loving Megan's vibe, but poor thing was eliminated last night. :-( So sad.

debevans said...

I like Adam and Danny and Kris!

OK, so looking through your last few posts a funny thought came to mind. I'm not sure if you read or watched Confessions of a Shopaholic, but the main character buys a scarf with the fantasy of being known as "The girl in the Denny George scarf". Your recent pictures made me think you could claim the title of "The girl in the flowered headband". I love your and your girls' headbands--so cute!!
