Dear Neighbors,

Thank you!  For planting these charming friends underneath my stairs. They cheer me up every time I pull into my parking stall.

Also... Thank you for not acting like I was a total creeper when you walked out of your      
door and found me taking pictures of your flowers.

Because I sure felt like one.

This is how it all went down...

Two years ago today began a week where a boy swept me off my feet.
He had one week before we both went our separate ways for the summer.
I thought he was cute, but I didn't think it would go anywhere.  
After all, we didn't have a whole lot of time to establish anything.

But he proved me wrong.

So enjoy a page from our "Adventure Book" and a little peek into our past.
Note the TWO movies in a row on Friday.
We were a good amount of time into the first movie before we got brave enough
 to actually hold each other's hands.
So of course we had to start a second movie to actually enjoy the 

Yes, that is a real word.

Okay, I just had to share this.

This is the story of my life.... Or more like my mind.
Even as a kid I would do this all the time.
I will admit that I had an overactive imagination.

But I guess I still have it.
And some people forget to follow my mind's screenplay.

Anyone else?

50th Post

I am cozied up in my new bed
listening to the rain fall
through my open window.

And I am content.

IKEA, I thank you

Yesterday, this room pictured below
(while not terrible, but not at all inviting)...

Officially became THIS ROOM!

My dear in-laws came up to visit this weekend and
brought with them this lovely bed frame that I have
been saving up for this last year and a half.

I. Am. In. Love.

Hooray for $3 frames at Walmart!
And it's probably a good thing that I live in an apartment and
can't paint the walls because I have no idea what I would do.

But hallelujah, I am thrilled with the change!

Next stop...

Spring Break: Day 2

Once upon a time I had this random golden frame
that sat under my bed.

And that is all that it was good for.

Then I was looking around on
(which I still prefer to Pinterest... I don't understand that place)
and I saw this lovely idea! So I turned this sad little frame into an
earring display/holder thingy.

So I got some spray paint- "Golden Maize" to be exact.
$3 at Lowe's...

Then I found this plastic mesh stuff in the

Garden Center at Lowe's for $2

I trimmed it to size, hot glued it on the back, and...


Five little buckaroos later and I've got a nice place to hang my earrings.

No more searching for matching pairs in my jewelry box!

Spring Break: What is it good for?

Day 1
Playing with my super cool Silhouette Cameo machine.
Still have a lot to learn about this fancy thing.
