Goals Update: Get A New Job

*Goals Update*

Get a New Job

It felt like the picture below, but it's finally done! 

Tuesday, May 3, 2011


That's what I've been called!  Last week I saw this pic on a blog and I just loved it.

I love the wood and white with the green as the focus point.  Then on Sunday I found this at my fav place... TJ Maxx.  I found it in the clearance section all the way in the back!  It was only $7.  I just had to get it.

On Sunday, a mass for the 1 year anniversary of my grandma's passing was said and for some reason after her passing I have grown very fond of birds... I don't know why.  I think maybe she liked them or for some reason they remind me of her... anyways, I think she also called me cotorra sometime.  I don't know where I am going with this... but finding the ceramic parrot felt good, kinda like a hug from my grandma.  Maybe I am crazy, but I am so happy with my new "pet".

My Own Dressing Room!

A couple months ago I saw a posting on a dressing room.  The couple had an extra room in their house and the wife decided to make it her dressing room!  How great is that?!  Well, since I do live in a studio with not even a bedroom... I can't quite have that... but I do have a small closet room!

A trip to Wal-Mart got the decorating juices flowing... I got a $3 poster, a $7 frame and a $10 rug.  I also moved a lamp from the "living room" and waaalaaa!  I got me a dressing room!

At one point I was upset with myself for getting the red dresser instead of the black one.  It has been two years since I changed my bedroom decor from red to green to blue... so the dresser stood out like a sore thumb (literally!), but when I saw this pic it all fell into place! 

I also thought the framed poster made it more glam than a mirror could.  I already have a full length mirror so I won't be missing out on anything.  What do u think?  I love it!

It also makes me want to keep an organized closet.  Which the actual closet part is still a WIP, but I will keep you updated on any progress.

Now for a pic...because a post is better with a pic.
