free paint!

Get your free paint now! :)

Just saw on Thrifty Decor Chick that Glidden is giving away a free quart of paint - your color choice!

I just ordered Candy Apple Red. Not sure what I will use it for yet but it's a fun color. Maybe redo a piece of furniture?? Fun Stuff!

Only offered until July 2nd or while supplies last so go to to order your paint!

jewelry always cheers me up :)

all found on Anthropologie

anyone else?

First Ed, then the deal with our Gov and then Farrah and Michael Jackson and now possibly something going on with Jeff Goldbloom. Geesh.

Anyone else want to be this fish right now? Bet he doesn't know about all the crazy sad stuff going on right now. Or maybe I could just stick my head in the sand. to find some pics of pretty things to take my mind of all the bad news.

and his name shall be "little sh*t"

Started painting tonight. Went downstairs to wash off brushes, etc and came back up to find this "little sh*t" crawling across the wall I had just painted. I mean, still wet just painted. I was NOT happy with "little sh*t". This picture does not do him justice. Neither does his name b/c it really should be "big sh*t". If you have been to Charleston then you have seen our HUGE palmetto bugs. Gross. Wonder if I could talk Lyn into getting the house sprayed if I offer to pay for some of the cost. I cannot share my room with these things. They freak me out.

On a side note - I love love love the paint color that I picked out. It may have taken me a long time to decide but I am very happy with it. It is going to take longer than expected though to get it all done. Of course, if I had someone helping me it would go much faster. hint hint people...

and this

will be my closet

blue blue blue - it's decided!

I bought the paint tonight for my new room.
Behr - Lovely Blue Sky :)

And I am pretty sure I am going to go with the one below for the "bed nook" - it's called Tropical Breeze

Will take before and after pics and post within the week.

Watching Twilight and loving it!

happy father's day dad

To Dad:

Thank you, for everything you have done for me and for everything you have taught me. I am sure there have been plenty of times when you thought I wasn't listening. I was.

I have always been a Daddy's girl, but it's just been since college that we have become so close. Who would have thought hunting is what would bring us together?

In the last couple of years, you have had to assume the role of both mom and dad to me and I know it's been hard. Your support through it all is what has gotten me through.

Thank you for always being there. For giving me advice (whether I want to agree with it or not) but being patient with me so that I can make my own choices and learn from my mistakes.

You are the reason I get up every day and want to do better with my life. You alone have taught me to always be the best person that I can be and always give everything my best shot, thank you for that. I love you.

And, I think that you are too big for that horse. That's mine. :)

would like this magic wand to be mine

I would like to wave it over all of my stuff and have it magically be boxed up and moved over to my new house. :)

teal colored thursday

I love love love the color of this room. :)

Isn't it cheery?

bad obama, bad

Yep. I am sure you have heard about this by now but I just can't help but get tickled when I see it on the news. Seriously? And I sure hope I am not offending anyone but come on, a fly? Is this what we should be concerned with right now? Take a look at the article on FITSNEWS.COM - you will at least get to see a bonus video of U2. :)

I found that fly article b/c a friend passed me the website just a few minutes ago, to share with me the latest on the Rusty DePass fiasco. See, Rusty's son is a good friend of mine from home. It's an unfortunate situation and one that just baffles me. I just can't fathom why people say (or think) the things they do. But anyhoo - I feel for his family right now b/c apparently there are all kinds of nasty things being said about him and even his family members are getting not so nice phone calls and emails. Does being nasty about it make it right? If you ask me, it doesn't. I do however think that there are consequences for your actions and what he said was just not cool. But mean facebook groups being created? I can think of better things that people could be doing with their time. Right? :)

it's gonna be a hot one

Looks like the rain might stay away for a couple days but it's going to be REALLY hot! These images made me feel a little better about it. Especially that outdoor shower. Ahhh...

crush crush crushing on michael cera

I LOVE Michael Cera.

It started for me here in Juno:

And I really loved Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist:

I am pretty embarrassed to say that I want to see Year One:

And then this one....Paper Heart...seems so sweet!

Is he too young for me? I don't think so.
How precious is he?

Hope you are all watching So You Think You Can Dance!

I just saw a fun tag on Perfect Sentiments and just had to give it a try. Because it turned out the way it did - I just had to share!

So here was the idea - Open your first photo file and post the 10th picture from it.

I cannot believe this is the picture I ended up with! I was downtown with my friend Amy years ago and we met this guy at the bar. She totally made me get on the back for a picture when we left. Just LOOK at the crotch rocket and the helmet will you?! And of course we ran into him everywhere we went for months!
Good grief.

new glasses

Went to the eye doctor today. Thought for a little while that reading all these new blogs was making me go blind. I really did! But thankfully, I am not going blind. My astigmatism has changed by a "good bit" which sure was expensive, so thanks you stinky astigmatism. I gave them my old frames for the new lenses and it still cost me $176. Yuck. I am supposed to try out the new lenses and if my vision while at the computer doesn't improve, I will also have to buy a pair of work station glasses. So, I thought I would play around online and see what all is out there. Wow...

I am just too plain jane to wear those funky frames! However, if I do end up having to get the work station glasses maybe I will do something with a little color like below...

I like the blue. :)

love a bed nook

Does this not look so cozy?
