Bunch o Random

There's just no way to tie together the topics in this post so I won't even try.

1. I got a new necklace from Rachel at Moonlight Doodles and it's fabulous! I got to design it myself which was really fun. Hammer that! Dome the flower! I'm great at giving out orders.

It's a longer length chain which I really like and it's a lighter weight than my other stamped necklace from Rachel. This one has more of a charm necklace, casual feel to it and just like a little girl, I like the way it clinks together when I move. Really, it's like I'm 6 years old.

I know I've said it before, but you really should visit her shop. She's great to work with and has really high quality standards. And because Rachel thinks I'm so awesome (she didn't say it, but I know that's how she feels), she's offering my blog readers 10% off through September 30th. Just mention to her that you saw this offer on my blog (and tell her how awesome I am).

2. I'm growing my hair out a little and sometimes, it's just too crazy to tame. It was extra crazy this morning so I borrowed the rolled rose idea from my new bags and made a headband. I may looked pissed, but I really do like it. People will notice the beautiful rose and not my shaggy hair, right?

3. You need to buy the Pillsbury Best of the Bake Off Cookbook. It's by far my favorite cookbook and has the most realistic and manageable recipes. I flipped through it today looking for something fall-ish to make for a cake walk at Bella's school on Friday and I decided on the Apple Crunch Coffee Cake. Like any good baker, I had to do a test run today. Isn't it extra yummy looking?
I'll let you know how it tastes after I eat half of it tonight.
