I took this photo on my balcony this morning of my new little lego creation :) I really really really want to decorate one of the beams of my patio like the entrance to Platform 9 3/4 now so that I can do a little photo shoot. I'll definitely post... Continue reading

I woke up this morning and decided to take a few photos because it's just so beautiful out today. I wasn't expecting to see this little guy on my patio! I opened the screen to give him a handful of food and he just ran right in like the place... Continue reading

I decided these three things would be rather cute/funny sitting on one of the shelves in my living room. I collected Troll Dolls when I was a kid and sadly they were lost. Soooo I'm starting up a collection again and I found this one just the other day at... Continue reading

I've been wanting to get back into drawing and I've always thought cartoons would be fun! I picked up the book Cartoon Cool: How to Draw New Retro-Style Characters at the book store the other day and have been learning a bit about cartoon technique. Expect to see more photos... Continue reading

Thanks Ayla! Rock climbing is really something I want to try out. I'm excited about decorating too :) Thrift Stores/Antique Malls are definitely on my list of supply sources. I've never been to Ikea but I've always wanted to go! I'll have to check it out :)

I will most likely be a bit scarce for the next couple of months I imagine. I'll try not to fall off of my blog completely, but with Working/Making Xmas Gifts/Preparing to Move I'm going to be stressed to the max as it is. I'm also starting the Weight Watchers... Continue reading

I was inspired by Caitlin's very honest post over on her blog To Make Love Stay about how honest and true to herself that she is on her blog. She takes pride in the fact that she portrays herself exactly how she is in person and I love that. If... Continue reading

Ayal-I PROMISE it's worth it. You won't be disappointed. I know exactly what you mean about the first few chapters. I almost got bored with it but I kept at it and I'm so glad I did. Hands down one of my all time favorite books now. Stela-read it soon!!! :)

I just started book 2 last night and I'm already past the first 100 pages...If I weren't at work right now I'd be wayyy further than that. My favorite part of the first book was Lizbeth's revenge...I was cheering almost to the point of tears. It was GREAT! I absolutely love her character so much. The first few chapters were difficult to get through but once things picked up...I loved every word of it. Book 2 is just as great so far. I'll have to let you know when I finish them all! I love having people to talk to about books and I don't personally know anyone who's read them!

Over the past year and a half or two I've been saying that I'm moving to Fort Worth. It seems as though it just keeps getting pushed back and it just hasn't happened yet. I'm currently living with my sister Shelby and her husband David in a house that we're... Continue reading

Jenny of Chandelier Jenny did this on her blog and I couldn't help but do one here too! I occasionally stutter and stammer. Sometimes I do this when I'm nervous or if I'm talking fast. I have to stop and take a breath before I continue. I'm messy. My car... Continue reading

As I mentioned in my inspiration post this past Wednesday, I created something for the first time using my sewing machine! I made a throw pillow cover! I had a pillow insert that had just been sitting in my closet forever so I decided a cover for it would be... Continue reading
