I like "Piano Man" by Billy Joel, lately I've had an obsession with "we didn't start the fire" though. Green tea flavored ice cream sounds good.

Gabbi said...

No one does a tag like you :) I love that your fashion inspiration is your little niece Teagan, wondering what it's like to feel like a Junior Mint... sweet on the outside and cool on the inside? I like that! Lastly, I think being a yoga instructor (especially seeing your next post) is very much like being a gymnast... only more impressive.♥

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou said...

yes, i want that Bordelle piece too - it's a bit pricey at the moment!!

The Lil Bee said...
