I'm teaching my pre-k student about animals that lay eggs vs those born living
  • Me: Can you think of some animals that do not lay eggs?
  • Student: Let me think...a cat! Dogs! A monkey!
  • Me: Wow! You really know your stuff! Those are all great answers. What about some animals that *do* lay eggs?
  • Student: That's easy! Chickens!
  • Me: Uh huh.
  • Student: Snakes!
  • Me: You got it!
  • Student: Frogs!
  • Me: YES! High five!
  • Student: Dragons!
  • Me:, I're right, they do, but it's just that...



  • 1 ½ oz gin
  • ¾ oz framboise liqueur
  • ¾ oz lemon juice
  • ¾ oz raspberry syrup
  • 3 drops rosewater
  • 1 egg white
  • soda


Combine gin, framboise liqueur, lemon juice, raspberry syrup, rose water and egg white in a shaker; shake vigorously without ice for 10-15 seconds. Add ice and shake for 5 additional seconds. Strain into a chilled Collins glass with ice, top with soda and garnish with a rose petal.


As much as it hurts, it’s time to right foolish mistakes and turn the tables on my honest-to-goodness reckless spending. I caught myself trigger purchasing another cardigan and skirt, and I’m still waiting on an invoice from Innocent World about menial socks and tights! So while I can reason that I’ll be using the skirt and cardigan much more, I need to correct myself and let go of something I haven’t worn. I know a lot of my spending sprees are triggered by bad moments but it’s time to set myself on the better path.

I am including a (hopefully) matching headband from Angelic Pretty, from the Nostalgic Doll series. I purchased it from a Canadian seller, and it hasn’t arrived yet. I can hold the skirt until it arrives, or I can ship both separately. A gift courtesy of my self-improvement. :)

You can contact me via ask or any method you choose from here. Facebook is preferable, as I’ve learned to check my “Other” inbox frequently.

I still have the Fancy Egg print in black available here!

Went shopping today to get tights and a bag to match my outfit for Saturday’s wedding. I’m in the choir and I’d assumed we’d be wearing uniform, so it’s a little short notice, haha. I decided to go with a cream bag rather than red for now, since I don’t want to be too distracting (I was in dire need of a cream bag anyway). The bag is by Sirco (bought it in Beales) and the tights are by Accesorize. I have some shoes by Hush Puppies on the way from TKMaxx; they should get here tomorrow.
