What I'm Loving Wednesday...shiny happy people.

Umm yes, I just quoted an R.E.M song... errr... it's a classic right? Anyhow what I'm LOVING Wednesday is kind of random and disjointed this week... and shiny and happy and people relate to all of these things.. thus the strange R.E.M reference in my title? ( i know you're all humming the tune now.. hahaha)

I decided last night to try and capture the most amazing sunset outside my window, the sky was vibrant hot pink, alas the actual sunset itself did not translate too well on camera but you can see my living room kind of had a warm pink glow about it... totally dreamy...totally happy... totally shiny.

The amazing-ness of this view is not lost on me... we got pretty lucky and lucky or unlucky for you I will continue to post completely gratuitous apartment "with my fancy view" shots...until the time comes that this little one bedroom is too small for us ;)

As I was loading the photos on my computer I realized that I never really take b&w shots of "home"...I wanted to see how it looked and I'm kind of in love with black and white house photos now...clearly I am easily entertained...

gratuitous photo #2...

Speaking of black and white...I am also LOVING that I framed some of the photo booth shots that we took at the wedding last weekend! It's fun to change up little things here and there in the apt. with new pics and these are so fun...


And because they are my newest obsession... I had to share some new photos of the absolutely adorable Royal Couple... LOVING them.

Royal, Shiny.Happy.People

And I'll end the post on one more shiny, happy, LOVE for the week...all the sparkling lights of the city...otherwise known as gratuitous photos number 3, 4, and 5, of my lovely view... this time on the balcony ;)

Summer in the City...

Happy & Shiny

There's always so much more that I'm loving but these are just a few that I have captured either on my camera or online stalk..err...perusing ;)

Here's to the rest of the week being just as lovely! (and yes I realize it is technically still Tuesday.. but oh well, it's field trip day tomorrow and the only thing I'll be doing after school is going straight to bed!)

  1. your blog is so sweet, so glad i found it!

  2. Count yourself as one of those "shiny, happy people"! I love reading your blog. It always makes me smile. Love you. -- aunt t

  3. Your view is just stunning! (And your den is pretty dang fantastic too). I love what you've done with your balcony. Until we purchased our home, we lived in a condo with a great balcony facing downtown Charlotte, and I certainly do miss a city skyline view. It was the perfect way to enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the night. (PS - new to your blog, so cute!)

  4. Thanks for playing along!

    I love black and white photos too :) Those photo booth pics are too cute!

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
