it's the little things:: cookie dough & chevron rugs

It's Friiiiiday! That means that it's time for the weekend AND a Little Things linkup! Each week, I've been looking forward to these link ups and it makes me so happy to hear that you guys are enjoying them too! Doesn't it make your week so much better when you are looking for those little blessings instead of focusing on the yucky stuff? I know especially when I have stressful weeks like this week, that the little things can make a big difference. 

My little things this week... 

Chris and I made chocolate chip cookies the other night. The best part about making cookies as an adult is you get to eat as much batter as you want. I think I may have triple-dipped my egg-beater. No worries-- we were the only one eating the cookies. ;) Not like there were very many anyway, after all the batter we ate. 


My new mini-moo biz cards came in the mail! Obviously because they are tiny, they are so freaking adorable (Chris has figured out the girl-rule that anything small = cute.) I kind of want to hand them out to everyone on the street. I guess that's the point. :) 



I don't know about you, but I am still obsessed with chevron patterns. I recently bought this chevron rug from Urban Outfitters and it came in the mail yesterday! I'm in looove. Now to find some awesome new pillows and paint some new artwork. 


And just to demonstrate that I'm not a total phone-picture h8er, here are a few *bonus* little things from my phone.

Now, go link up! Excited to see your posts this week!

1. Only link to your specific blog post, not to your blog's main page. See here for more explanation.
