Can We Pretend? ‘Cause Honestly, Reality, It Bores Me

Can We Pretend? ‘Cause Honestly, Reality, It Bores Me. Happy Monday friends 🖐. Thanks for stopping by The Weekly Link Up.

I’m late im late for a very important date🐇.

After month of humming and harring over what theme to do when we have had our garage converted into a dining room I have eventually settled on a Alice In Wonderland theme.

Can We Pretend? ‘Cause Honestly, Reality, It Bores Me:

I love everything about a Alice in wonderland theme from creating afternoon tea to designing my very own Alice tablescapes.

I was going to be all grown up and go for a FRIENDS style cafe but my thoughts have always come back to an Alice room and as lots of crappy things have been happening lately, how cool would it be to step into a fairytale land???

Also my Husband has agreed so that’s a big bonus..

Ekk lots of planning to be done.

Watch this space.

I still adore these Alice In Wonderland themed photos I took years and years ago. I added a cartoon filter to them and think they turned out perfectyly.

I think these photos are amongst my favourite photos ever.

Can We Pretend?- Pink

So can we pretend that I’m 22 today?
Dancin’ on the tables with you, oh yeah
Can we pretend that we all end up okay?
I just wanna forget with you, oh yeah
Can we pretend that we both like the president?
Can we pretend that I really like your shoes? Hell yeah
Can we pretend? ‘Cause honestly, reality, it bores me
Let’s pretend, oh, let’s make believe
Can we,

Can We Pretend? ‘Cause Honestly, Reality, It Bores Me.
