It's been a crazy long time guys! I have so many things to post! Hopefully I'll be posting them more frequently! Lets just start with this week. I recently moved into a new place and put up some v-day decor. It looks like this: I made it myself over the... Continue reading

Apparently my new blogging schedule is one post every 4 months. Say wha??? Oh well, I'm not giving up yet. Wanna see what I've been up to? Thought so... 1. Mastering crocheted cables! 2. Running with this guy. 3. Napping with this girl. 4. Dreaming of owning this car. 5.... Continue reading

Generally speaking, cold weather turns me into a crabby irrational hermit. I despise being cold and living in an ancient, drafty apartment just makes me curl up in wad of blankets muttering and growling at passers by for the majority of the winter months. This is tradition. Which is why... Continue reading

This week I started unpacking my winter clothes and dragging out the Halloween decorations. Fall is Lit-trally my favorite season. (I know you Parks & Rec fans are out there. You read it.) Every year I stretch it out for as long as I can and then wish it could... Continue reading

As soon as I found out about pinterest I requested an invite. At the time it was not open to the public and I had to be put on a wait list to finally get an account. Since that day I have used pinterest almost on a daily basis and... Continue reading

Today I'm finally getting around to framing some of the artwork that I've collected and left stacked around my apartment for ages. I will be funding the effort with a number of gift cards I recieved for Christmas and left stacked around my apartment for ages. It's coming full circle!... Continue reading

Last weekend I went to Memphis. It looked a lot like this: Hit the Cards season opener before I left town. Awesome. Contacted college bestie and laid out some plans. Brewed some seriously strong coffee gifted from a friend & drove South. Caught the ARRG All Star bout then caught... Continue reading

I recently fell off the grid and I have to admit, it was pretty nice. After the rush of the holidays I was long over due for some me time. I unplugged my computer and spent minimal time on the social media apps I tend to rely on. While I... Continue reading

I just realized I never published this. Oops! For those of you that are new, a few weeks before Christmas every year I host a huge cookie baking marathon with friends and family. When I say huge, I'm not exaggerating. This year we made 16 varieties of cookies and assembled... Continue reading

I've tried, unsuccessfully, three times now to write a year end recap blog post. After this last time (about 30 min. ago), I've decided that its just not meant to be. My current computer has no interest in what happened last year and keeps freezing when I take interest so... Continue reading

This year I only made one Black Friday purchase and I made it online. I splurged and treated myself to the Mishka "Keep Watch" sweater I'd been eyeing for months. Merry Christmas to me! It's the perfect weight for layering and I've been living in it since it shipped. This... Continue reading

I just got home from a long, relaxing weekend with the family. For the past few years my Mom has lightened up the mood of Christmas and rather than hosting a formal family gathering she's been hosting an informal open house. We spend the morning as a family leisurely opening... Continue reading

As previously promised... here's my recipe for chex mix. I wanted to make it from scratch this year, but wasn't impressed by the recipes on the box so I made my own. I'm not going to lie - it's addictive! I used a blend of asian and mexican flavors to... Continue reading

It's been a while and I could use a recharge so here are the top five things that currently inspire or amuse me: 1. The entire Takkoda website. This mug is exceptional, but I would take any one of the hundreds of items they're pushing. Awesome. 2. Essie's Matte About... Continue reading

Remember those toys I was raving about a few weeks ago? Last week I finally got around to buying them! I had a minor panic attack when I got to the holiday isle and only found Rudolf, thinking I'd waited too long and missed out. Luckily, the sweetest girl went... Continue reading

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you living stateside! I hope you enjoyed your Holiday. Mine was pretty great and I'm loving the weekend that's following it just as much! This year I invited some friends over on Thanksgiving Eve and we watched Pushing Daisies while we prepped dishes for Thanksgiving... Continue reading

Contents: - Spinach Salad with Mock Chicken - Roasted Potatoes, Carrots & Onions I have been on a huge spinach salad kick recently. They're so easy to throw together! I change up toppings daily and supplement with any leftovers I have in the fridge - hence the roasted veg. Continue reading

A few weeks ago I took a walking photography class to better acquaint myself with my camera. The info provided was pretty basic, but I definitely feel like I know my camera better, which is pretty awesome! Here are a few shots from our walk: These last few were taken... Continue reading

This what I wore post is going to stray a little from the standard format. I was recently asked by some of the hosts of this years Zootini party to do an outfit post describing what I would wear to the event. For those of you who aren't familiar with... Continue reading

I changed up my fall decorating a bit this year by replacing all of my live flower vases with terrariums built in vases. I picked up some dry moss at the dollar store, but was able to find everything else I needed in my apartment or outside. I really loved... Continue reading

Did you do anything fun? After changing my costume idea a million times I settled on a Piranha Plant from Super Mario Brothers. I was able to put the whole thing together in about 5 hours using only things I found in my apartment. I know most people don't randomly... Continue reading

I just got back from an AMAZING vacation on the East coast. I had been feeling really burnt out and anxious and I think this was just what I needed to get back on track. I feel completely rejuvenated! Two friends joined me for the trip and we spent the... Continue reading
