weeks in Pictures

As you know every few months I go onto MSNs "Week in Pictures" to see some of the amazing shots taken around the world. Here are a few of the ones that really caught my eye!

This picture reminds me of all the southern gal blogs I read!

Kiss seen around the world
Scott Jones and Alex Thomas kiss during a riot in Vancouver, Canada, on June 15. Riots broke out in the city after their hockey team, the Vancouver Canucks, lost in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. This photo went viral on the web, but Jones later told "Today" show's Matt Lauer that rather than giving his girlfriend a passionate kiss, he was just trying to calm her down. “It was pretty scary for her, and it seemed like the right thing to do,” said Jones.

This shot.. otherwise known as my largest fear... looks kinda cool...and terrifying!

Aground in India
Beachgoers feed pigeons in Mumbai where a cargo ship ran aground due to rough weather on June 12. The ship was being tugged to the Alang scrapyard in Gujarat from Colombo when it broke away and drifted toward the Mumbai coast.

This shot breaks my heart, and humbles me at the same time... We can only do so much in the face of nature

Record flooding in Minot
Homes are surrounded by floodwater as the Souris River crests on June 26 in Minot, N.D. The Souris River surpassed its 1881 record level of 1,558 feet above sea level and flooded about 4,000 homes in the city

I am sooooo IN love with these shots of beautiful full and wild flower arrangements! They make my heart happy. Thank You StyleMePretty for posting these shots

Also.. I LOVE that chair! I am on the look out for some cute new furniture to style my new place in NYC. I'll arrive with the best of the best of my shoe collection and a handful of clothes... so there will be much to decorate and style!
