hello, world. my name is ilene (aka illy). this is my blog where i like to write about life, laughter and the pursuit of real happiness. creamer with a pinch of coffee, songs played on repeat, red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting, and reading into the hours of the night top my list of favorite things. and life. i am a follower of Jesus and i love life.
[love the reeese' hearts ryan got me for v-day. yum. and so much PB.
also rocking urban decay eyeshadow and OPI nailpolish.]
it's friday, folks! are you as happy as i am?! i'm looking forward to some more time with Ryan and family - especially tonight while we all head out to an oyster roast at our church. i'm not huge on oysters but these events are normally a lot of fun - and people keep raving about all the food they'll be serving there...and you know me! i LOVE food!!
soooo...i had one more blogiversary post to go up answering questions about blogging specifically but yesterday and early this morning, the internet was done. bummer. but it kinda worked for the best 'cause i had a super productive day. i also found myself less distracted by the internet - so i take that as a plus. oh and even got a little further into I am Number Four, another goodie.
speaking of goodies, i don't know about you but have you seen all the goodies out there in blog-world? though i'd shout out some link love for a few of my fave:
