my living space

Everyone needs a place to call their own. Lucky for me, my bedroom is finally coming together! (I'm less than happy about the carpet situation, but hey! Nothing's permanent.) 
And let's point out that Kenny Loggins wrote a song about the areas not pictured (Danger Zone, duh!) I NEVER said I was neat. I just make sure I look that way on camera.
You can see the rest of it later (there's an undecorated Christmas tree and a tent involved), once I've cleaned.

Today I got scolded by Kaelah for not updating in forever. I promise I'll change (I feel like I'm trying to save a relationship or something.) And...
I've got exciting news coming up! (no, not of the engagement or baby persuasion, let's just get that out there.) It's going to take a lot of time and effort, but I have an awesome support team and am excited to unveil my latest venture! So stick around, by this time next week I should have some stuff to share.

i'm older!

Yep! This past week was my 23rd (yeowch!) birthday! And boy howdy (ha, I live in Nashville now...) it's been a buuuusy week.
I've just been snapping little snapshots for a few days when I remember to, and here it is! My tastefully named, BIRTHDAY WEEK PHOTO DUMP!

top to bottom:
1. My new cupcake hat! It's a hat that looks like a cupcake. Umm. Best thing ever, or greatest thing ever?
2. I'm an old lady that was in love with this tuna salad. Awkward.
3. Vintage shopping! (also, antiquing in AWESOME antique malls!)
4. Almost-daily coffee dates make my world go 'round.
5. My new 50cent (NOT the rapper) purse. It's woven, AND embroidered. Hullo, springtime!
6. Random midnight-brunches, complete with fruit salad and mimosas (and The Mighty Boosh on laptop during prep-time, obviously.)
7. A jaunt to a Nashville institution (my omelet was the size of my head, and yes, the pancakes are to die for!) with this lovely lady!
8. Not pictured: loads of gin, birthday cupcakes, and cute kitchen gadgets.

Whew! And even though this Saturday afternoon is being spent watching True Blood and eating peanut butter crackers, I've got a full few weekend ahead of me! Including a friend coming 'round in about a half an hour (yikes, I should get to tidying...), an important-person's show to attend tonight, work tomorrow at 8am, then off to a neighboring town to meet up with an Arts Department of a movie I'm volunteering to help with!
Maybe Monday I can schedule a time to breath?  :)

lobsters 'n cutlery

Today when my work shift ended, I was greeted by the ever-so-lovely Kaelah for a coffee + cake date and a catch-up session (let's be real, we talked about boys and TV shows.) The day I returned from my week in Seattle was the day she left for Chicago for a few days.... needless to say, I was bummed! But now we're back in the same town and I can be a creepy stalker again. Yay!

After the caffeine jolt she remembered that she had heard something about the local swanky fabric store having a storewide 40% off sale (seriously, they have the best novelty patterns ever and I NEED EVERY HEINOUS THING. Novelty prints are my CRACK.) Of course it had to be checked out, and I naturally walked away with these beauties.

And I have to return a few more times to stock up before the sale ends (there were vegetables! and tools! and bees!)

I have big plans for this fabric, just wait and see!
Also, a big hello to my new readers!

and i'm back!

whew! Did the holiday season exhaust anyone else?  Christmas is hectic enough, and after mixing in trying to balance your new life in a new place AND pencil in a trip across the country for a wedding (thank you, Jacob, for making me your groomslady!) it got a little overwhelming. 

This girl is tired! (fun is tiring, didn't you know?)
Anyways, this week coming up will be a doozy as well! Friend dates and chillaxin' appointments are what I have to look forward to.
I'm excited!

This outfit was ages ago, somewhere in between unwrapping presents and packing my suitcase. All I know is I've had those riding boots far longer than I should, but they're like a safety blanket for my feet! (comforting and familiar can apply to footwear, right? Right.)
