How to make a bad day better

It's a very simple equation...  Bad Day + Balloons = Happiness!
Untitled
Once you blow up a crazy amount of balloons you can...
Untitled
let them loose on your bed and dance,
Untitled
Confuse your cat,
Untitled
Tie them all together and take a walk through the park looking like a giant balloon bouquet with legs,
Untitled
         and have the most colorful apartment on the block!

How delightful! The photo of your apartment from the outside has to be one of the most smile-inducing shots I've seen in a long time! I wonder what my apartment would look like from the outside when all filled with balloons...!

Magdalena said...

I love the idea of walking around town covered in balloons!

Rambling Tart said...

Wonderful :-) Thank you for making me smile so big today. :-)

I love these photos so much! I love looking at balloons, but I actually have a phobia of them being close to me. I know that's super weird, and I wish it wasn't true, but I'm scared of them popping in my eye. (Which has happened to me before, and I had an eye patch for a few days!)

I love the kitty confusion! :)

I came home from a trip to find that my students had filled my room completely with balloons. It is beyond question one of the highlights of my life.

Oh man, one of my favorite things is to stroll around the neighborhood at night and see all of the cozy glowing windows. The balloons in the windows would make my life to see!!!

Magical Day Dream said...

Haha so awesome! Did you walk through the park like that? Could you fit through the door? I was thinking a while back about maybe blowing up a massive amount of balloons, and hang them all in a tree when there aren't leaves anymore, so it will still look happy and colourful outside :D

Thirty-year-old woman with a pony tail, super-kawaii lady, you feel like you're the cutest "girl" ever, with your million colors and your idiot face. All I can see, at least in these pictures, is pollution. Do you have a clue of how bad balloons are? Do you think that it's worth that everyone looks at this and says "Owww, how cute can this thirty-year-old strawberry pie be?".

Grow up, or at least don't fuck the world up in the meantime.
