weekly roundup: 5/23-5/30

i always see people posting "weekly roundups," typically reviewing their past week via instagram pictures. i figured that since i finally have an iphone (yay fancy 18th birthday present!) i would start doing roundups as a way to keep me blogging. since, let's be honest...i'm TERRIBLE at keeping up with this thing.

so here's my week in review!

thursday i went out with my mom & best friend and we indulged in some marvelous desserts. the tiny little cup is mine- chocolate mousse! i have a minor obsession with chocolate mousse..but it's so wonderful how can i not!?

thanks to a sudden heat wave and a lack of upstairs air conditioning, i got to spend the night in my sewing room. i'm thinking of moving in permanently now..i practically live there anyway, though i imagine it would be very inconvenient to have to keep moving the mattress off the table :P

i spent memorial day with my darling friend taylor and her family. they're quite a fun bunch :) we spent all day in the pool and got away with only the tiniest bit of sunburn

taylor and i also went downtown to the coolest cafe ever. they have every flavor of gelato you could imagine (and others you wouldn't want to- olive oil. blech.) i went with a cake pop and a birthday cake flavored whoopie pie. the best part though was the design of the place. there's three sections each with their own definitive style. the room pictured above has scratch and sniff wallpaper!

the weather was beautiful yesterday so i went outside to give my keds a bath. much to my dismay, the saddle shoe looking ones bled all over themselves, but i managed to get them back to a pristine white thanks to my fantastic stain removal skills. i'm such a little housewife haha

and as always, cat pictures:

she's simply too cute to resist!

wednesday was my birthday.

spent most of the day sick in bed, but got in a few nice hours with close friends; 
sipping sparkling cider and having silly discussions. 
i don't think i could ask for much more :)

on a random note, these were the pictures i took on my birthday last year:

my theory that i've stopped aging keeps proving itself truer and truer...
