My room/closet is an amazing mess of crap since I've moved. I need to organize but each time I try to work on it, I feel like I'm just moving one pile of stuff to another pile just to move it all to another pile. I have gotten some fantastic yarn from my favorite yarn store, Sunflower Yarns, along with some fun finds at Hobby Lobby and JoAnn's and Etsy. I need to make a post just about the stuff I've gotten in the mail and stuff, it is all wicked cute and I have great plans for most of it.
I have been consistently been losing 2-3 pounds each week since I've been back on the farm. If I continue at this pace, I will be down another 10-ish pounds by the time I go see my ldb in Jersey (random, but she's having a really crappy few days, go give her some love!)! Yay! I picked up some cute clothes on clearance from Old Navy for the trip...one thing being a pretty green and grey sundress, but I'm not totally comfortable in it at this point so I will most likely be taking a cardi to throw over it -- yes, I am mentally packing already for the trip that is just about a month away!
When my sister got married last summer, she didn't have a wedding photographer, so that job fell to myself and R's sister....well, Amanda really loved some of the pictures I took and has agreed to let me take some maternity pictures of her growing belly! I may have made a board for inspiration haha Have I ever mentioned that I like taking pictures? No? Well, I do. I have my dad's camera from when he was big into photography in the early 90's....we even had a darkroom in the garage! I wish he would have kept at it because I really loved it then, and love it even more now. But, I hate having my own picture taken....I'm definitely a behind the camera kind of gal!
Random, but the tv show Dance Moms is both horrifying and fascinating to me. I'm also really loving to snack on Teddy Grahams. I prefer the chocolate chip ones.
The idea of doing sponsoring on other blogs via Scarlett Key and Little Life of Mine has been on my mind a great deal. There are a few blogs that I really really really love, GrrFiesty & Miss Larissa Bee & Susannah Bean & others, that I think have decent prices to at least try it out....That wouldn't be a bad idea, right? I just want to get SK out there and really put more of my heart into it. I have been planning and thinking about new products for my little shop that I can't wait to work on and get put into the store.
Speaking of Miss Larissa Bee....I won a giveaway through her blog! Whimsical Blog Designs sponsors her blog and did a blog design as a giveway! Woohoo! So, in about a month or so you will see pretty new stuff going on here at LLoM! I can't wait!!!!! Kate, the owner, has a style and design eye that is just right up my alley and I absolutely can't wait to see what we come up with. I think it will be nothing short of great!
While I love love love walking the trail when I go out (which has been around 3-5 times a week at this point! yay!) but I've been staring at bikes for weeks now. Weeks! I'm attracted to the classic Schwinn bikes like the Admiral or the Errand . I love them both but I'm more drawn to the Admiral because in person the Errand is actually a weird, dark purple that just....well, isn't my color. haha Plus the Admiral would match my red baby Jeep!
Well, I think that was enough chatter for the moment, don't ya think? haha....lastly, here are two pictures from the last couple of days....
|It was deceptively sunny yesterday...so bright but sooooo cold! This morning it is even colder at like 35! I love these shoes too...I may have gotten them in three different colors. They aren't Tom's, they're Airwalks, so comfy! The closest you can come to walking barefoot without being barefoot! I have the black, grey, and the purple ones....I don't have the multi ones because I don't know what I would wear such a print with.|
