Finally! It only took several months, but I finally finished the vanity project. Perhaps finished is a little misleading, though. You may notice in the picture the sides where the mirror comes down are a bit knicked. This was because after everything was painted, there wasn’t enough room for the mirror to come down, so… Continue reading The Vanity is Complete
Last weekend John and I went to Savannah, GA to celebrate my 25th birthday, and this weekend we did a lot of “housework” … yet our bedroom is still a downright mess. The biggest accomplishment was in our office… which is still nowhere near “done.” We have done what we can just re-using what we… Continue reading Hacking our desk, old new bookshelf & vanity stool
I had a feeling that before I even picked up this book that I wouldn’t like it, but I have heard a lot of commotion over it and thought I would see what all of the hype was about, albeit a bit late on the bandwagon. But not late enough, however, to pick this… Continue reading Eat Pray Love
Another original recipe by yours truly! I used my own homemade teriyaki sauce as well, which I should post the recipe for soon. Against my better judgment and roaring hunger, I did not take a photo of this dish before digging in… but my husband has declared this one a “keeper” so I will be… Continue reading Under the Influence of Coconut Curry
I am a big fan of Macaroni & Cheese. The oozy, cheesy goodness… what’s not to love? Well, apparently some people don’t care for the oozy, cheesy goodness and would probably alter the statement to the tune of “what’s not to hate?” Yep, that’s right. John doesn’t care for Mac & Cheese the way most… Continue reading Now Mac & Cheese is all grown up!
Because you all are waiting with bated breath (well, maybe not), I introduce to you the vanity, completely painted, however not currently assembled, including the fabric I chose to line the drawers. In my last post, I was agonizing over what decorative paper/wrapping paper I was going to use.
I have spent some time now searching for the PERFECT gift wrap to use for lining the drawers of my Vanity. I’m torn between different designs/styles/colors/etc. I think this is why I tend to just go with boring things, because I can never make my mind up on something. I suppose the good thing about… Continue reading Oh, the choices…
So, I have been semi-casually looking for a Vanity for my room. I happened upon this beauty on craigslist and decided to take it home. However, it was in a desperate need of paint. I was originally going to repaint it white, but I thought, you know, my room is already boring enough with a… Continue reading Vanity Progress
My first honest-to-goodness purchase for the Kindle was a KJV bible from OSNOVA because of the direct jump navigational functionality. For $4.99 you can’t beat it! Depending on your individual preferences, you can purchase a version where each verse is on a separate line, or paragraphed (which is what I chose), or without any navigation… Continue reading OSNOVA King James Version Bible
Apparently I was the lucky one that got this book for free, as it now comes with a $9.99 price tag, and thus I can no longer tag it as a free book. However, this is a great reminder to you all that you should check Amazon regularly for free books and download the heck… Continue reading The Choice Effect
