Thursday (Monday) Favorites V 4.0

Here I am this morning with another lovely list of my weekly favorites. I know this was supposed to be updated on Monday, but I honestly just let it slip my mind. Anyways, here are five things that are currently favorites in my book.

1. The Cracking Good blog is penned by a lovely lady that goes by the name of Carrie Wheeler. Carrie is a writer, blogger, book illustrator, and online media teacher at the Cronkite School for Journalism and Mass Communication (where I go to school). Carrie blogs about all kinds of things including, but not limited to, gardening, fashion, and what's good to do on the weekends in the greater Phoenix (AZ) area. Carrie is super talented and her blog is a must read!

2.Recently I fell in love with these beautiful Salt Water Sandals. I've seen them mentioned in a few different places, but specifically on the I Go By Katie blog (which the photo was borrowed from). These sandals were originally made in the 1940's, and generally every kid on the block had a pair (including my mom). Two days ago I ordered myself, and my grandmother each a pair. I can't wait to get them in the mail!

3. I absolutely adore this belt by Katie. As mentioned before, Katie blogs here, and is the owner of the Darlingtonia Moccasins Co. where she hand-makes beautiful moccasins, and now accessories as well. If you haven't checked out her blog or shop yet, I highly suggest you do so.

4. Yesterday I pre-ordered the new Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin album, Let it Sway, and was offered a free MP3 download of the entire record before it comes out in August. This band is one of my favorites and their new album is amazing.

5. A few days ago I saw this lovely set of wedding photos by Jill Thomas. Now, I know I've seen these pictures floating around on other's blogs, but I just loved them too much not to share. The groom of this wedding was Forrest Kline of Hellogoodbye, and I am just smitten with the style of his and his wife Chelsea's wedding.

There you go, five new things I'm currently loving.
