{Cake Time Is Anytime}

image

I’m pretty sure I love cake as much as I love my mom!! Seriously I need help and a personal trainer (yes I’m a major chunky monkey when it comes to cake!!).

Anyway I found this super cute and  extremely practical cake or pie transporter!! If you have ever tried to take a cake or pie to a potluck or a dinner party; it’s a complete disaster!! You get an overly priced plastic tray with snap on lid, then you put it in your car and you drive like you have a flipping bomb in the back seat!!

This amazing company is called PieBox!!
The Cake holder is made out of unfinished pine!! Yes it’s wood!! It can hold 18 cupcakes or one 9″ cake!! I’m loving this!! The best part is it’s made right here in the US!!!

Check it out and make sure to buy it!!!

Camping at The Hilton!

image

Buzzfeed somehow always knows what to say and when to say it!! So randomly one day I was googling funny quotes about not camping or not being “outdoorsy” and I ran across an article from BuzzFeed titled
“32 Signs You’re Not An Outdoors Person At All”
Yes that spoke to me!!

I can honestly say that I hate the outdoors as in the wilderness!! Don’t get me wrong I like parks, my backyard, a farm, even a botanical garden here or there is lovely but camping and having to pee in a hole is so not me!!

So when I read this article I about died because it’s basically me minus the gardening and farming part!!!

Here are a few things according to BuzzFeed:

1. You get stressed out thinking about the lack of power outlets outside.

2. And you don’t even want to think about how bad the wifi service is.

7. You don’t care about learning how to use a compass — you have Google Maps for that stuff.

12. You consider mosquito’s the worst creatures on earth.

15. You’re not sure why you’d go hiking outside when there’s a perfectly good treadmill at the gym.

19. Or if it’s hot, you start sweating the moment you step outdoors.

25. Going camping is basically your darkest nightmare

Check out all 32 signs here!!!

Since I was 12 I’ve wanted to golf!! Yes I understand that was 11 almost 12 years ago!!
But I’m pretty sure that I finally have my dad convinced that he should teach me and since he was on his high school golf team (he lettered) and he taught me how to drive a car, he can now teach me how to use a driver, (see what I did there haha and if you didn’t get it it’s all good it’s a stupid joke)!!

Now I’ll give you a little background on myself! I was what parents and teachers called an “old soul” or some like to say “stick in the mud”I hated to run as a kid, I hated the outdoors and I even cryed at a petting zoo because I guess I thought that a goat would attack me, I don’t what was wrong with me!! So golf would be an obvious choice right!!
Well now thanks to Jordan, Rory, Jake Owen and all the other super handsome/amazingly talented young people, golf is now the cool preppy sport!! I’m pretty sure that everyone is playing or at least trying to play!!

It’s now going to be my thing!! Yes I plan on being great at it, hell I might go pro anything is possible it’s 2016!!

And yes I already have a golf board on Pinterest with some super cute outfits!!

So here’s to me bringing my inner Happy Gilmore to a golf course near you 😉

(Yes I stole this from Tyler’s Snapchat!!)

Okay y’all why do something’s work and well others don’t!!
For example peanut butter and jelly it works!!! Pickles and jelly well let’s be honest it’s never worked!!

So today when I was on Snapchat (yes I’m an addict, follow me hollandgibson) I came across Tyler Rich’s Snapchat story and apparently only Tyler and his friend Alex can make Hawaiian shirts work!!!
You may be thinking “Thats not possible, Hawaiian shirts are for old fat guys from Michigan who have never had a tan!!” Well yes I thought the same thing until today!!

So bravo guys on making the Hawaiian shirt hot!!
(Lol I still can’t believe that I’m saying that!)

Plus I’m so wishing that I was at Coachella hanging with some awesome people like these two!!!

P.S.
Make sure to follow Tyler on
Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Spotify TylerRichMusic.com!!
