Yet another addiction

I'm addicted to youtube videos. Not just funny cats and dogs, but beauty videos. I mean, I'm ADDICTED. I can watch these girls all day long. I've been searching for the perfect concealer since I was 12. My under-eye circles are epic. Shhhh it is a secret. I've been covering them for so long that people ...

Fannie Fouch

I finished! I finished the amazing Fannie Fouch cardigan designed by the super helpful and amazing Ellen Mason! (Check out her blog). I've made 5 sweaters. I never wear the first one and I ripped out the second one. This one, though, will get worn out. (Don't worry pictures are coming soon) The set in sleeves ...

I may have an problem

I'm obsessed with knitting. My pinterest board entitled "Must Make Knitting" has 535 pins. I follow several knitting blogs, I'm on ravelry constantly, andI think I currently have 3 projects in the works. I have a little bag that I carry with me EVERYWHERE to knit up hexipuffs for the fabulous Bee Keepers Quilt (watch her video, ...

Her last day

Today is Lucy's last day on this side of the rainbow bridge. This is going to be a bittersweet post but I find it lethargic to write. I got Lucy nearly 9 years ago in Tennessee. She was my birthday present to myself and my first pet that was all my own. I went to the ...

What I did this weekend

While most Coloradans are probably out enjoying the wonderful weather we're having (and always have) I've been inside fighting with my allergies and working. Woo thrilling, I know. BUT! I did sneak in a couple of fun things between work proposals and events for my folks' paper (www.desertexposure.com). This may not be fun to most, and normally not ...

I’m blatantly stealing this

Normally I don't steal other people's posts, but this time, I'm making an exception. Annie, over at Live Simply By Annie, put this up and I had to do the same. It is going to get me through this week. 

Opening wedding presents is fun!

Our wedding is two months away, and no I'm not freaking out yet. The wedding presents have started streaming in and opening all these Crate and Barrel boxes is oh so much fun!  New dishes! Hello CB Aspen goodbye chipped Ikea plates!  Last night was our three year anniversary so we busted out all the new plates ...

Pantry Door

I bought this awesome over the door Rubbermaid shelf thing for our pantry. Slight problem, the door wouldn't close! So after a lot of yelling at the door and putting in these fancy "hollow core door" brackets we got it up.  Yes, all of those ramen's are facing the same way, Mike's a little OCD Even Mavi ...

It is time to organize

Some days I find it increasingly difficult to work because I just want to go home and organize and clean my house. More specifically, I want to go home and label everything. So tonight, as I sit late in my office, waiting to go to a meeting, I emailed Mike, my annoyingly-neat soon-to-be-husband, that I ...

When you can’t find a pattern, make it up

I've been itching to make these bootcuffs I found for my new boots.  But, I tried the pattern this weekend and frankly, I don't like the cables and they are far too big for me. The cables are huge and squirrely, not tight and knotted looking like I like. So I'm determined to create my very own pattern. ...
