Crushing On A Con Artist

Soo. I have a confession. I have a serious crush on the TV con artist, Matt Bomer.  Not only is White Collar one of my new favorite shows for the summer but his eyes are.. Ahhh. (you get the point)

So excited for the new episode tonight that I had to post a little eye candy for your enjoyment.

Lazy Sunday

Don’t you just love overcast Sundays?  Throw your hair in a bun and wear your pajamas all day long. It’s my favorite kind of day.

Currently Listening: Foster The People

Need some great music to keep you going on this Friday morning? Well Foster the People will do just that. I thought we were going to the concert tonight but of course it is already sold out… I guess I will just have to wait until next time. 

Happy Friday!
