Happy Valentines!

Hey! I took some pictures with my BB. I was supposed to be organizing the craft room/guest room/crap room and then I decided to redo the front door wreath! Here's some pictures of the before/Christmas wreath

It's a P wrapped in a dollar tree garland. I had to trim up the "greens" so you could tell it's a P!

After/ Valentinezed!

I love these little stuffed animals with the large eyes. I want one but I really don't need to be displaying this stuff!

So I am working on my wedding stuff. I have everything picked out, just got get some $$ to pay for it! Have a Happy Valentines Day!

Swedish Styling in Central Louisiana: Ikea in our House!

When Holly and I went to our friend Katie's wedding in Northern Virginia, a big part of the weekend had to do with visiting Ikea. Since I was about to move, I couldn't really buy anything but I took some pictures and got some ideas for what I wanted to do once I did get to my new house.

Cute netural living room. I like light and dark stuff mixed together

This is Ikea's bedroom. I like all of the pillows and the gallery over the bed. Too busy? I kind of want something but I don't want to over do my bedroom!

Our current bedroom. Kind of plain but it's relaxing and clean!
This is what our kitchen looks like now. There's a funny space between the cabinets. I made this "picture". It's okay but I want something more interesting

This is kind of what I was thinking. Stainless steel to match the appliances. I don't want wood because I think that it would be too hard to match.

What are some of your favorite Ikea finds? 
Please be really, really, really excited that I finally got pictures to upload to Blogger!! Maybe I got to wait later on in the evening when all of the locals are asleep to upload my pictures!

Success and misc catching up!

As per Holly's urging, I am back to playing on my blog! I have done a lot of fun stuff but I haven't blogged about it! Part of the issue is that the desktop computer here doesn't want to cooperate with me when I want to upload pictures! I can't stand blogs without pictures! So here's a couple of pictures. Lame but they are pictures! Here's some highlights of what's going on with me:
  1. I have a job! It's Media on the Battlefield. From what I understand, I am a role player who pretends to be a reporter and helps the soldiers who are getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan, learn about how to work with the media. I start that on Monday. They already told me that they don't have any work for me Sept or Oct. Awesome! That's my kind of job!
  2. I just finished my receptionist training for Weight Watchers and I should be going to Leader training some time this fall when I am not working my "real job". For those who don't speak Weight Watchers, it's the person who weighs in people and takes the money. It's a lot harder than it looks. It has really made me appreciate the people who have worked at my meetings
  3. I am in the beginning stages of getting some crafts together to sell at a local craft/gift store. I have always wanted to do something like that and now I have the time!
I promise to get my act together with this blog! Thanks for sticking around! I did lose one follower while I was gone!
Hose reel that's made for a 100 foot hose, I got a 150 foot!

My little container garden. I threw away a lot of plants because they died off in the 100+ degree weather. Since this picture was taking, the fern has gotten really crunchy!
