Weekend Review

It all started with cake... 
Since a lot of my coworkers and I actually worked on Memorial Day we decided to bring different things into work for the week. I made this chocolate cake and people seemed to really like it! I might try to bake something really different this week but since my schedule is getting pretty hectic I don't know if I'll be able to find the time. Baking is no joke! 

Is anyone else obsessed with the Aztec theme going on in fashion right now? I love it! I can't get enough soooo when I saw this wedges I knew I had to have them. I've already worn them at least 4 times. And don't worry mom that's the henna tattoo I got while at the fair.
 I came home on Friday to find this thing looking at me....  
Totally. Freaked. Me. Out! It was just chilling in my garage acting like it owned the place. I can handle spiders and bugs. Reptiles are a different story. I can't handle them and I'm deathly afraid of snakes. I can't even think about it too much or I start to stare at the ground making sure one isn't near me. This thing just kept looking at me and we had a stare off contest while I figured out what to do. I also called my mom and panicked. I'm pretty for sure it's a helo monster but I could be wrong. 

The next day was at least a little bonus because I got something good in the mail! 
I've been eying these teardrop necklaces for months but never bought one because they usually range anywhere from 34.99-49.99 dollars in price and frankly that's a little too pricey for a piece of costume jewelry. When I saw his on ebay for under 8.00 dollars I jumped at the chance. It came in the mail on Friday and it's perfect!

I also worked on the outside of my house. I added some more lava rock to the front of the house in the garden/plant area. It's a slow process since I'm not made of money...
Who knew rocks could be so expensive?!? And that in a nutshell was my weekend.

The cake looks delicious.

When IC and I were in Queensland a few years ago, there was a little teeny tiny lizard on the bed which IC bravely caught and took outside. But then just as I was falling asleep he tapped his fingers against my hip and in my half awake state I brushed his hands away super hard thinking it was another lizard. He still teases me about it.
