{things i love} thursday
april 30th edition

welcome to thursday.
its been a rough week so far, mostly because i've had a headache pretty much non-stop for about a week and a half now. feeling so drained. :(
but i'm still alive.
still reading blogs.
still looking at pictures
and still have some fun things to share!!

i'm so loving this from the creative mind of dear rhi. brills no? can't wait to see what she creates next!!

and the amazing vee made some ATC's recently that i'm just swooning over! look HERE! and while you're there, look through some of her photostream. she is such an inspiration to me in my scrapbooking.

i thought this week i'd do something a little different and share my favorite tv shows.
chris and i love cuddling up on the couch together to watch some tv. <3
we like: house, american idol, fringe, lie to me, CSI: new york, pretty much anything on HGtv (chris says its like crack! hehe) especially my new favorite "dear genevive." she was my favorite designer from the original trading spaces show on TLC. now she's got her own show. *love* i love america's next top model and say yes to the dress. chris likes overhaulin and anything on the NFL network. that's been a fun one leading up to the draft! good times. :) :D

and now for my Flickr faves from this week.
1. i love you more than pancakes!!, 2. Untitled, 3. i have a problem., 4. href=""i <3>, 5. another fake., 6. bathroom*loves, 7. the sea is diamond roses, every gentle wave is wild., 8. Reflecting, 9. 04.30

and speaking of different (on my blog anyway!)
who could resist??
gotta give this a try for sure!



4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

also FYI: the ladies over at THe CrEatiVe TyPe have been really sick. :( so we're postponing our prompt till next week. so keep your eyes peeled. its goona be a good one!!

have a great thursday friends!!
