spoiled rotten

i am so spoiled rotten do not ever let me tell you different. I got to go on a shopping spree this weekend with my hubby. intentions were totally to finish christmas shopping which we did accomplish but i also ended up coming home with wicked yummy smells from Body Shop (remember Topaz?) cool free stuff from Origins and soft clothes from H&M. but the real reason why I am so spoiled is because my honey let me get an awesome apple lap top that was on sale!!! i am typing on it right now and totally think i am in love. eventually we will go wireless but for now this will do.

i love presents....

especially ones that make me cute. Thank you Topaz love you lots!!!

Had to buy the blue skull tee at Target for a mere $7.99 to go with the thermal shirt. Mom was feeling up the softness and tried to steal it for herself.

love of all things black...

very into all things black lacquered all of a sudden. so happy i married a paint man! I got this picture frame at a yard sale for 50 cents it used to be creme and gold now is a gorgeous black. Was originally going to be for a gift but I am thinking that I have to keep it because its gorgeous and I am so sure that I will find something on the black apple etsy shop to go into it. also the mirror that was a dollar store find for yes you guessed for you a dollar. it was gold now is this gorgeous black so curious what else i own or will find that may meet its blackened destiny. seriously this is not the depression speaking or at least i don't think so.

signs of christmas

I didn't really get good pictures of the tree but I tried. I think that my camera is dying, or I don't really know how to use it one or the other.
Its called our Left Over Wedding tree with a few additions haha. I love it though. I tried to add gold streamers but it really didn't look right so I used up ribbon left over. Looks wonky but cute. It looks really good lit up in person. I have been crafting away but not really taking pictures which isn't good. I have to work on that.

I have been struggling with myself recently. I think that it all boils down to the fact that I am just not happy with my job. I want to do something that I enjoy not just something that I am good at. I am tired of feeling like a monkey and being treated like one. I want substance, I want accomplishment. Why does happiness not pay off though??? I get home and all I want to do is sleep and I could I am actually mentally worn out. I try to clean or work on something and I just can't focus and then I want to scream. It is totally effecting "married life" now and that sucks but what can you do at least he understands. what makes this go away??? at least I still have humor I kept playing the mime fron cirque de soliel that pulls his guts out when he dies to Bobby last night then crashed and got cuddled as I cried.

sweet slumber

totally excited about our new bedding. actually the only new edition is the beautiful quilted coverlet. can't decide what color to call it I should have looked at the package but I didn't. goes very well with everything else and the man loves it too so that is a big plus... i even got permission to buy the sheets that match the coverlet when the go on sale again at kohl's. if they are half as soft as the coverlet i may never leave my bed. well good night for now, going to go enjoy my new bed!

the creative juices are flowing...

i am so excited to finally have time to start creating all these crazy ideas that have been going through my head. I finished my love letters box to hold all of Bobby's love letters from when we were dating (i say that because I haven't gotten any in the past 6 months or so :) I started a christmas plaque I guess you would call it trying to immitate ali's holiday crafts picture. I also started a new album that I haven't even decided what is going in there and I also am working on another project that I might even be teaching as a class to Inspired Treasures in the up coming future. Oh and I also made a christmas wreath today. Man I was busy, didn't get much cleaning done though oh well tomorrow is another day.

the baby talk

I am so excited we had the "baby" talk!!! We decided to start trying to have a baby in about 6 months... 6 months is not a long time to have to wait..ahhh. I am so excited you have no idea! little shirts and hats and shoes and kisses and snuggles and screaming and crying but I want to have it all! I really need to start getting my creative juices flowing and start making some money off of that so I am on a roll and ready for anything that may come.
This set is sooo cute I am going to try to refrain from starting to buy stuff already but it is so darn cute and to be totally honest I already own a few things hehe. Now I just have to convince someone else to get knocked up with me. Charis and John are going to start trying right away so maybe we can be pregnant together. That would be so cute!
