DOs & DON'Ts & Treasure.

Happy Monday, friends & followers. This morning I had hiccups for roughly 35 minutes. Life is hard.

Here are some tips to live by this week:

DON'T bite your lip as an alternative to your fingernails.
DO shake your sheets out every night before you go to sleep (spiders).

DON'T eat at Logan's if you have a peanut allergy.
DO eat ice cream with your fiance late at night, and support his decision to get mini marshmallows & sprinkles.

DON'T forget to say thank you when someone pays for your meal, even if they do it often :)
DO realize that splinters can get inside your face skin & pester you during church.

DON'T underestimate the power of a Sunday afternoon nap on the couch.
DO watch cartoons on your laptop while taking a bubble bath.

DON'T visit unless you just got paid (lawd hammercy).
DO wear a dress instead of jeans when its 96 degrees outside, amen.

DON'T tickle me ever.
DO make this cinnamon pull-apart bread for your loved ones (I'm making it this weekend).

My goals for this week include, but are not limited to, deciding on bridesmaids dresses in 3 different shades of grey, log in 6 observation hours for school, make some club sandwiches for whoever comes to my house to watch the new episode of NBC's hit television series Parenthood tomorrow night (ahem...Matt?), and be as much of a health nut as I can.

I am a fan of traveling through the archives of my favorite blogs and reading their super early posts. I think I'll start linking ones I find & like to my posts for you to read, because I feel like they're little treasures buried away. How cheesy did that just sound? I don't care, I really feel that way.

My first treasure to share with you is a post from 2007 from a blog called NieNie Dialogues. NieNie (Stephanie) has been blogging for years, and in 2008 she and her husband were in a plane crash. I began reading her blog post-crash and I fell in love with it. This post is super sweet and cute.

Have a safe & super week, buttheads*.
