Things That Make Me Say Yeay!

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Pretty tissue paper from World Market that I wrapped a little present in this week.

Drinking this by a beautiful pool over the weekend. Maybe my all time favorite beer...

A new Fresh Lilac candle for my facial room. I bought it here.

Fresh basil from our garden! I have been adding it to every thing I cook just because I am so excited about it. Who cares if basil and enchiladas don't go together..I am adding it!

The coolest ducktape that I have ever seen!


Do you have anything that makes you say YEAY?! I want to hear!

Ohh, that tissue paper is just beautiful! And if I had a pool, you bet I would be drinking by i ;) Looks relaxing!

Anne said...

Gidday Lindsay. That paper is so pretty. I remember drinking quite a few Stella Artois in my younger days. Don't have any desire to drink beer now. Isn't it funny how your tastes change?

What's making me say yeay right now is online shopping. I'm still not 100% and we're quite low on a lot of things. I barely have enough energy to go down to the shops on my own, let alone with my 2 sick kids in tow. I'm counting down the next 4-5 weeks and then we'll be enjoying beautiful warm day & night weather and hopefully the end of cold season.

Just wish I could focus on something else. sorry I don't have anything more interesting to yeay about.

That duct tape is SO cool! And I loooove fresh basil, always a good addition to a recipe. Happy Wednesday!

Stephanie said...

Our basil exploded last week and I've been using it every night and I've been giving bags of it away. There is still a massive amount. Next year I think I'll plant less than a whole package of it. : )

Bibi said...

That's some awesome duct-tape!
Yay for basil -- I dried some of mine for the winter. :) Yours looks very delicious.

I literally just spewed coffee all over my keyboard with that basil enchilada comment. Too funny. I love it too.

I want that candle.

The Dad just bought a case of that beer the other day for the first time. I may or may not have had a few chugs to check it out. It does not suck at all. Or so I hear. :o)

I have a small obsession with wrapping paper. That tissue paper could definitely come live at my house.

Does that duct tape live at your house? If so, whatcha gonna do with it? I've seen some pretty sweet wallets made with duct tape.

In New Yoooork, concrete jungles where dreams are made of....must be Wednesday again.

Oh, the basil! We have one little plant in our kitchen and I just love when I get to add a few leaves to whatever I am cooking. :)

Levi put together a new syllable today. That made me say, "Yeay!"

Christina said...

I saw some duct tape the other day that I thought was SO cute, and my husband was like that's ridiculous. LOL they don't understand ;)

Anonymous said...

I have to say that Basil and enchilda comment was hillarious! I have a new found obsession with coriander and seem to be doing the same thing as you and adding it everything (& things that shouldn't neccessarily have it added too! haha) Loved this post though :)
