is it weird that I like this?

These are actual pictures I took of wrapping paper possibilities at the new Paper Source store in The Hills Center in Green Hills. I cannot get over the blue marbleized option. Holy moly. Paper products addict. I also bought a few rubber stamps...which is slowly but surely turning into a collection.
We may have also walked into Anthropologie that day... I love this wall installation made from old mop heads that they had dip-dyed. So cool.

Without a doubt, my favorite childhood trip our family took was to Idaho for a 7-day white water rafting trip down the Salmon River. We rode all day and camped at night. I loved how warm it was during the day and how cool it got at night. I loved sitting around the campfire and fishing. Growing up with my dad being such an outdoorsman has made me love the outdoors. Wanting to someday camp in a large national park out west. Here are some inspirational photos...

Never have I been more behind on the times than with this gorgeous store in downtown Franklin called Philanthropy. The husband/wife duo behind this creatively decorated, affordable store have taken this space to a whole new level. I love the structures inside the actual structure and the creative displays. So impressive. The clothing is comfy and cute too.

This past Saturday...Billy had his first pop music concert experience by accompanying my mother, godmother, and I to the Katy Perry concert - bless him. Within 5 minutes of being at the show, we were featured on the "smootch cam" and kissed in front of 1000's of people at Bridgestone arena. This would not be my typical concert of choice...but it was cute and whimsical - not to mention her voice is phenomenal.
I'm not sure why I love this photo so much. I think it's because it is ACTUALLY lived in. These shelves are filled with books, firewood, and board games and I'm assuming the people who live here have a lot of fun...with their kids? or maybe throw great dinner parties that end in a game of cranium? Either way...not everything has to be perfectly styled all the time. If only we could see the fireplace that requires all of that hefty firewood...I would totally live here.

Probably one of my favorite online activities is discovering new Etsy shops. Here are my favorite pieces from recently discovered shops. The first is called Yokoo Scarves and Accessories and she could quite possibly be one of the most talented knitters I've ever seen. I can't select just one of her items...because I plan on owning them all. Officially listed in my head as an all-time favorite. Truly impressive.
