elenowen. interiors. baby shower. spring!

oh my.
i think i've found the next best thing to the civil wars.
can you believe it??
me neither.

and i stumbled upon them while creeping jessica's fb likes. heheheh.
here's their musiccityunsigned site.
their myspace
here's the list of their interests in their fb page: playing honest music, drinking coffee, and connecting with YOU. 
come. on.
does that not make you like them even more, after listening to their music?
it did me.
not to mention they have some cute pictures in their fb profile of americanos and pretty sunsets.
heck yeah.
my favorite so far is the one that greeted me when i first pressed play.
the storm.
shocker of shockers, this morning i ended up deleting several (okay, 30ish) pictures off my already-full sd card. tomorrow i plan on coercing the van to wallyworld so i can pick a new one up for the 6 hours of driving, and the week ahead.

so i took some pictures at the baby shower we had for sarah and justin's new little one due at the end of june.
i tell ya, it's baby season!
random fact: a few weeks ago, i went through my dashboard and counted every pregnant blogger. out of the 100 or so blogs i follow, there were 8 or 9. dude, that' around 10%. that's a lot. that's more than one or two. hah.
yesterday i had a frog in my throat, yes? well, i didn't sing at church today (on the stage) instead i stood in the same row as the rest of my dear family and croaked about 1 sentence per song. my voice was still that bad this morning at 10. but it was a good time, not being up in front of people and all. relaxing.
now, though, is another story. i've had probably 5 cups of green tea today, at church and home... and my voice --the talking one;)-- is getting much better. hardly any crackle/smoker quality to it.
my second thought while inspecting this photo was: i can imagine spiders and insects such as that hiding and making homes behind that bed backdrop.
i love the shelves and all the light in this one. :)

ahhh! i'm excited.
just remembered that america's next great restaurant is on tonight. you see that tree, above? yes, indeed, there are buds! it's blooming!
i don't think i'll ever fall out of love with trader joe's mango-apricot greek yogurt.
ever. ever. ever.
