fa-ra-ra-raaaaa, ra-ra-ra-raaaaaa

What I did today:

-Figured out which pictures to print for family pic gifts

-Went through the checkout at Target Three.Times.In.Ten.Minutes. Yes, that's right.

-All together I purchased boo-ku frames, super fab too-sparkles y'all!; one roll of gorge black wrapping paper with simple stencil sketched, ivory flowers; a strand of ribbon stapled together, meant to go to one gift usually. I promptly had Hunter remove said staple with scissors so I could disassemble to make ribbon for many gifts, already curled. Oh, yes. Time/finger-saver, good friends. And I only had to make two stops for more photos to be printed out. Whoo, I'm exhausted all over again.

-Got home, forced Hunter awake from his nap to look at my finds, explained my wrapping ideas, woke Hunter up again from nodding off, grabbed my tape, scissors, and some extra trinkets I've had around the house this year. Items included these floral table embellishments from Andrea's bridal shower and a gold paint pe…

Newtown- One week since...

Today is one week since the tragedy in Connecticut. I wasn't sure if I wanted to weigh in on the recent Newtown tragedy but feel compelled to get out some thoughts.

I remember my Grandpa telling me when I was a kid that there would be big things or events in the world that would stick more with me than others. I believe he is right. Everyone has moments where you remember where you were when it happened.

I'll never forget Grandpa calling the house to say, "Well, it's a shame, a real shame." And me being about 12 asking what he meant and him responding with the news Princess Diana had been killed overnight in an automobile accident. I felt horrified for her children, even being a child myself. I always paid attention to the pictures of her helping so many and her beauty she shared with the world in her truly, short time among us.

I remember being in 10th grade and my science teacher, quite a bit like Ms. Frizzle from Magic School Bus, being the only teacher …

My CHI-tah, my friend

My last CHI was a hand me down from a friend. It came to me in good/fair condition but during the time I put a roof over its head it decided to start a slow death. A very sad, slow, miserable death. One that required tape to hold the ON switch in place, one where the heat started to generate slower and slower than ever meaning I had to crank up the heat notch all the way. Since I don't straighten or curl my hair and require its uses every day, I'd been able to survive. I know, such a troublesome life I lead.

Per usual routine in our house, Hunter and I have the hardest time holding off from gifting whatever we purchased for one another for whatever holiday it is intended for. Exhibit A is the pictorial evidence above. My Hunter Bear, bless his heart, couldn't contain himself more than 2 days once he made the move to get a hold of the neon CHI-TAH. I will say my Bear knew, with so many events upcoming and reasons to actually do my hair and look more presentable, th…

Zest for Rest

Things I like to do on days off 'responsible, big girl' life: sleep. talk to the dogs. cook something new, creative, or extensive. go out for coffee and lounge at the book store. troll twitter. tv- love me some Dexter, Big Rich Texas, Gossip Girl. BadGirlsClubsseason5rerunswhat. Okay, so the last one is a realllll guilty pleasure. Hey, we all got 'em.

Today really was such a lazy, carefree day. It felt so needed. We went to my cousin's wedding on Saturday and traveled all day for it. I worked all day Sunday and we went right to our work holiday party, then back to a friend's house for a bit after. Been up and running, running and I'm feeling the run down. Needless to say, I was not surprised that I slept way later than my norm the last couple days off. Definitely enjoyed it but also feel like tomorrow should be a peg above on the useful scale. I did blog and cook a couple great meals so at least I did some things.

Why is it I feel so guilty about being …

Can we just talk...

about how radiant the accessorizing in this photo is?

Wow! Was reading this today and really am enjoying some items. The bangles, shades and boots are my favorite components. The boots are quite a treasure. They look like a comfy option, they have the great zipper detailing, fabulous color and can I get an amen for the glitter? Mmm mmmm! These are yum. They can be super duper cute with slim pants, tights, or as seen with Reesey girl. I really, really enjoy them.

The bangle is great- a fab investment- and the sunnies are IT. They are a beautiful pair absolutely. I particularly enjoy their very classic Hollywood-ish appeal.

It's really great that these items can most definitely be styled with so much. You're quadrupling your investment, ten-fold. Okay I don't know if that makes any real, solid sense. I've heard that kind of talk in movies when people talk serious. Sounds good though, right?

Out of my three faves though, the boots are really 'k…

Introducing the Munterhegan's

So this happened. I was completely unaware, absolutely surprised, and got what I believe a person only wishes for.

Funny how life twists and turns. As someone who has always said I could take or leave the action of marriage, I must say I got everything I never knew I wanted. Hard to believe a girl saying she didn't desire marriage? Not really. Why? Nothing drastic, nothing obvious like the fact that my own parents divorced or plenty of my family members and friend's families have as well. I'd say I'm a little bit better off than that with my thoughts. Mostly it's just because I have never been the person who thought about wedding gowns, floral arrangements or getting a new last name. I rather like my own actually. To me, marriage is not a necessity to solidify anything more than some adjustments on some documents. Quite frankly, Hunter and I embarked on forever a long time ago. Way before the wild notion came to be that we would in fact walk down an ais…
