How to fulfill your shopping urge...for FREE:)

So, sometimes when I am bored and feel like shopping, I do some damage online. And no, I don't actually buy anything, but I put together pretty rooms without EVER even looking at a price tag. It is so much fun and cures my shopping urge. Today I put together a fun nursery. I have been oooing over that deer print for some time now (my nickname is Bambi) and am determined to use it in a nursery someday. I didn't necessarily have a gender in mind when I picked these pieces, but I feel it would be great for a boy or girl. It is definitely a mix of styles, an antiquey crib, modern dresser & chair, fun fabrics and a glamorous chandelier. I love the pops of orange/coral and seafoam. Most people run away from seafoam, but I think it is so soothing and pretty:)

Neutral Nursery

With a fun bookshelf and accessories, this room would be both fun and soothing. Perfect for a new addition:) 


This & That

Today's Checklist:

- Complete my C25K - check!

- Vacuum and do the dishes - check!

- Paint the last bit of oak trim left in the house - check!

- Get my tan on - check!

- Eat a whole carton of blueberries - check!

Yes, that has been my day so far. It is so incredibly nice outside today, 78 degrees and not a cloud in the sky:) Isn't it pathetic that I am already counting down the days until winter....I want to move before I have to experience another Kansas winter. I don't think I will survive.

I have a few things on my house checklist that I hope to complete in the near future. The list only consists of small/cheap projects that I can afford to complete right now, but nonetheless they will be improvements.

House Checklist:

- Make a small valence for kitchen window

- Paint curtain rods white

- Make artwork for my bathroom

- Paint bathroom vanity white

- Find and add hardware to the vanity

- Find cute hand towels for bathroom

- Get some small storage baskets to store in my bathroom

We'll see how fast I can check these off!

And now for the fun stuff...pretty pictures!



Goodwill Steal!

Look what I picked up today...

A 1940's buffet with the dents and scrapes to prove it. She is large and in charge! Can't decide what I am going to do with her yet, but I will keep you updated:)


Desk Re-Do

I got my hands on a craig's list gem...

It was in pretty darn good condition, but it needed some updating. I went back and forth, debating on whether or not to go bold or stay safe. Eventually, I decided to stay safe and go with a crisp white. You can learn more about my painting process here.

She really looks nice and is ready for every day use:)
However, I do not plan on keeping her. If you live in the KC metro area and are interested in purchasing this desk, check her out at my shop.

Happy 25th Birthday to my husband:)

Today, the love of my life turns 25! It is also the 2 year anniversary of buying our first home, we've been married for almost 13 months and have been together for almost 8 and a half years.

You might find a reoccurring theme in these pics, see if you can pick it out!

Our photo shoot at our cousins wedding last summer, after a few drinks I might add.

On our honeymoon at Table Rock Lake.

Fake signing papers at our house closing.

You had to get that one! Jayhawks, my husband is OBSESSED with the University of Kansas Jayhawks. Even that last picture (our engagement session) was taken on campus. I am guessing since we don't really agree on our future children's names, he is probably waiting to throw out Jay Hawk, to me. Anyway, Happy Birthday to him:)

I will have a sneak peak at a new project verrrry soon!
