My Life Recap / November 2010
*We are still waiting to close on our house.

*Put up my pink Christmas tree.
*Bought some sweaters on Black Friday!
*Cody and I ate at Frisch's together, probably for the last time.

{ Over all a quiet month. December will be very busy for us! }




I did not dare step foot in a store the day after Thanksgiving. I did shop online though. I found everything I wanted from OLD NAVY was the same price online as it was in the store. Except no crowds. I win. I also purchased a few sweaters from Jcpenney's website.

xmas me angel tree blog1

The past few years my tree has been red, green and silver. I decided to add hot pink ornaments this year. It goes well with all the pink in the apartment! Here is a photo of Cody & me before we went to Thanksgiving dinner at my Grandmas house. We are counting the days till he leaves for basic training. We are going to try to make the best of our last month together! I sure am going to miss him...

Hello Everyone! I hope that you all have a great day with family & friends! This year will probably be Cody & I's last Thanksgiving in OHIO. We will be starting our new traditions next year. Not sure what we will do. I guess it'll just be the 2 of us.

I am thankful for my future. I look forward to a new beginning and I am full of hope. I always tell myself things can be worse. I am thankful for the simple things in life Have a great day everybody!

4 Movies

4 Movies

1. TIMER - A movie about getting a timer implanted in your arm. The timer goes off when you meet your soul mate. It was cute and funny. 3.5 stars

2. The Princess and the Frog - I hated this movie. I never hate Disney movies. It did not like that it had black magic in it and I would not let my children watch this movie. It just wasn't good. 1 star

3. Halloween {by Rob Zombie} - I thought this movie was going to be really good since Rob Zombie did it. It shows Michael Meyers growing up so you learn why he is the way he is. It had a lot of boring parts and it was really long. 2.5 stars

4. JUNO - I do not like that this movie was about teen pregnancy, but I did like the basic story line and the ending. It was a funny movie. 3.5 stars

BLOG LOVE - For the Love

Meet Sarah. Her blog is For the Love.

I found her blog through Whatever Dee-Dee Wants. Sarah is an adorable girl with great style. I am drawn to her posts about her outfits mostly found at second hand shops. I wish I had more style like her! She inspires me to try harder when I get dressed everyday! lol Plus, I hope I am as cute of a mom as she is!

Victoria Secret Bedroom

I designed this room back in May 2007. I posted about it in the past, but I wanted to update the photos. I also added more details about the room. I get asked about the paint colors all the time. Here is one of my favorite rooms I have ever designed for someone else:

{Accessories I used are no longer available. I purchased the canvas at Hobby Lobby.}


My Living Room Wall

Every day that I sit and watch TV on my couch I stare at the blank wall above the television. It drives me crazy. I love LACK shelves from IKEA. I am not sure if I want to hang one or two on the wall. I also considered just hanging a few picture ledges.

Here is some of the things I have already to display and some things I would like to get...

vintage poster collage

I think the UNG DRILL picture frame would add a great POP of color when painted a shade of hot pink! I may just buy 1 LACK shelf and see how that looks in the apartment before planning the rest. Here is some inspiration photos...

FLASHBACK to 1996 - Photo Collage Bedroom

I was cleaning out my closet today and found tons of magazine clippings from when I did my entry way collage wall. I love doing collage walls from photos and magazine pages. I love doing it because it is like putting together a puzzle. Below is where the hobby started for me...

bedroom 1 1996

bedroom 2 1996
Green Day was my world! lol
bedroom 3 1996

bedroom 4 1996

bedroom ceiling 1996

I know not everyone could live in a room like this, but I was a teenager! lol I thought it was the coolest thing in the world. We ended up moving shortly after I finally got the room complete. I do still listen to Green Day, No Doubt, Garbage & Soundgarden. :)
