Loving this Song!

So I'm not all that into country music, but I am really loving Lady Antebellum's song called "need you now"... actually heard it for the first time at work a few days ago! I'm embedding a youtube video of the song, but it's not the actual music video!! ((If you want to watch that, then go to youtube.com and find it ;))


Help! I Can't Sleep!!

So here's the problem... I have to be up for work in about 4 hours and I haven't gotten any sleep yet! I don't know what the deal is =/ Although I did sleep way, way, way longer than I really needed to this morning... afternoon? Hah. Had another one of those sleep the day away sort of days.

Also wanted to let you know that starting on March 4th (next week, Thursday) this blog will be on an approximately 3 week hiatus while I get to spend some much needed quality time with my hubby and our son! (my hubby is Canadian and our son has been living with him since September!!) I miss them both so much and look forward to spending as much quality time with them as possible ;) Being in a long distance relationship really helps you to appreciate the time that you do get to spend with each other a lot more.

Buuuuuuuuuuuuuttttttttt I still plan on posting a few new blog entries before then!

Inspiration via Audrey Hepburn

I love images w/ quotes on them :) All of these images were found by using google image search..



And more lovely quotes by Audrey Hepburn..........

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.
I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it. 
I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.
 I only wish there were a million more quotes to be found by this inspiring lady!!

Fashion Fun: Heart Overload

Heart Overload

Man oh man, I especially love the shoes and the skirt. Loves.

Another Day Off

So I've been up since about 8:30 this morning and so far today I've gone to the grocery store to get a few ingredients for dinner. I'm making honey garlic chicken wings and pioneer woman's rosemary rolls. And something else, but I'm not sure yet! This is my first time making these dishes so they better be yummy! hehe.

I rented a couple of movies from Redbox also! "Cloudy with a chance of meatballs" and "the invention of lying" :) Bonus from not seeing movies in the theaters very often is that the list of movies i want to see keeps getting longer and longer! lol So odds that RedBox will have a movie I want to watch is very high. I'm watching "Cloudy with a chance of meatballs" right now, it's pretty cute so far.

Fashion Fun: Retro Pink

So I totally just discovered polyvore.com, although I have been seeing these things like this image aka "set" on blogs everywhere... lol, I just didn't realize that you can use Polyvore to create them! very cool.

Layout Help (SOLVED)

Please let me know if you know how to fix this........... this layout makes every post have that "Jump" at the bottom.. or the "continue reading..." link, how do I get that to go away?? I'm looking for something to change in the HTML coding, please help!!!!!!!!

EDIT: With a little help from Google I was able to find this post that helped me figure out how to solve the problem :) Yay for Google!

Super Bargain Shopper.

So I just bought a ton of awesome clearance stuff at Walmart (oh please, like you never shop there.) and it's mostly all stuff for SUMMER!! I bought myself 4 pairs of sandals ($2 each!) and 3 tank tops (one was clearance for $3, the other were just regular price $4). And I bought my son 2 pairs of nice shorts that were also on clearance for $3 each. I'm so proud of myself =) Now I need to find some cute dresses or skirts and I'll pretty much be set for summer! hehe

Have you had any good shopping days lately?

Wasted Days.

You know when you have a day off, and you end up sleeping until the afternoon? Perhaps even Evening??? Well, that's a wasted day. I've been having quite a few of those lately. I stay up way too late, horrible internet addictions.

So, I was thinking... some people must really make a TON of money by selling things on etsy, huh? I kinda wish I was one of those people, hehe. I don't really make anything right now though, so it's a little out of the question. I want to make things though, I really do. I need a craft area first? Perhaps not, but at least a little space to be crafty.

I haven't been getting many hours at work, I've been thinking about doing a little babysitting or something to make a little money. The classifieds had 2 separate help wanted ads this week about needing a babysitter /or help in a day care. It was really calling my name, but I'm ignoring it for the moment. I have an out of town trip planned for next month, so I can wait until afterwards. People always need babysitters, I'm not looking for anything permanent before then!

I'm watching the Olympics right now, I've actually watched it more this year than uhmm i ever have in my life...... seriously. Have you been watching??

New Layout

I'm not 100% in love with it at the moment, but it'll do for now. I'll do a little tweaking at some point in the future :) How is everyone doing????? Have a good valentine's day??

Pattern Love!

I just discovered this friggin' ADORABLE ring stacker toy pattern made by Heather Bailey. OMG, LOVE. It's available to purchase in her store for $12.95 :)

OH! She also has a lot of patterns for super cute pin-cushions! Such as this elephant one...

I think they are super cute, don't you??

Printer Issues

I discovered some 4"x6" photo paper for our printer and so I decided to try to print out some of my Poladroid pics. But, even though the printer clearly says it can print this size of paper, the paper never actually got to the ink before it jammed. Bummer. I had to open the back cover and remove the paper about 10 times! LOL It kept getting stuck on the turn, so I don't know what would help?.... any suggestions? I may just have to take them somewhere to get printed, which is okay too.

Well, I'm off to have a bath now and then maybe do a little shopping later! I'm really in the mood for sundresses and sandals.......... come on spring!


I just discovered this super sweet program called Poladroid, it takes digital pictures and makes them look like old-fashioned polaroid ones! (With long developing times and everything! lol) you should check it out :)

Here's a few that I have done of my son:


So glad I discovered Poladroid!! I plan on printing a bunch of these out and using them in scrapbooks!

I love a good saying

Found all of these images via weheartit.com, hope you enjoy them as much as I do =)


Hope you guys are enjoying your weekend :)

Ugh, More Snow??

It was sleeting/snowing when I got off from work tonight and I had to drive home on roads that were in far from ideal conditions, and I work late tomorrow too.. that's when we're supposed to get 2-4 inches of snow! So I'm really not happy with the weather right now, although I might feel differently about driving in it if (a) I had a 4 wheel drive vehicle, (b) I didn't have a 12 mile drive to & from work, about 5 miles of which is on country roads that do not get plowed very well, if at all. (c) if I didn't have so many hills to drive on, or sharp turns to encounter on the drive.

So who is ready for some warmer weather?????????? I know I am!


So it turns out my friend wants me to help her move into her new apartment TODAY, wow! I had no idea she was moving this soon! So... she gets her magnets today :) how nice for her, doesn't even have to wait! LOL I'm taking my camera along so maybe I'll be able to post a few pics of her apartment later. Or perhaps she'll let me decorate it with cute, crafty things and take before and after pics?????? Yet to be determined at this point, but i'm very excited about the possibilities!

I have a few things to get done here (like finish eating my ramen noodles and get the car seat out of my car) and then I'll be heading over to help her move!

Button Magnets

This was the crafty idea I got from Homemade & Homebaked, sewing buttons glued onto small magnets, TA DA! Super cute refridgerator magnets :) And, super easy & super fast to put together. A win-win all around :) I'm thinking of giving some to one my friends who is about to get her own apartment, and they are way too cute not to keep some for myself!

I did my shopping at Michaels, the bag of buttons was $5.99 (totally could have got them cheaper on eBay!) and a package of 50 magnets was $6.99. I still have lots of buttons and magnets left =) I just used a hot glue gun to attach them, but you can use whatever adhesive works best for you.

Switched Up the Layout!

I got the blog all dressed up for Valentine's Day :) so, if you don't like this new layout.. TOUGH! it's staying for at least 2 more weeks =)

I'm about to go shopping for crafty stuff, hehe, and I have to run a few other errands (like dropping off some bills to be mailed at the post office!) sooooooo I'll be back later. Have a great day!
