New Eyes

things to remember…

  • He ALWAYS gets comfortable. He always stops doing what he should be doing.
  • He never changes; he always finds new ways to communicate with his ex-girlfriends. (ick)
  • He can’t seem to hold onto ANY money… or a reliable car.
  • There’s got to be a reason why he was married before and it didn’t work out.
  • Sometimes he’s just mean.
  • It took him TWO YEARS to finally want to REALLY be with me. (wtf?) That should have been a red flag…

 

Now remember this…

  • I’ll get over it.
  • It will get easier.
  • I’ll be happy again.
  • I’ll open up to love again.
  • I have support.
  • Lydia is most important.

very cute, simple idea. love it.

Since I am moving into a new place in a few weeks, I think I might take advantage of this adorable idea. Will blog about it if I do. 🙂

DIY gallery framed wall

Sometimes I get on tangents that end up a little more involved than I’d hoped. For instance, I was doing a little rearranging around the house yesterday since I’ve been so busy with other things that I still haven’t taken the time to focus on setting up our new apartment. So, I decided on a whim to start on the gallery wall that I wanted to do (inspired from the top photo) by using this seemingly simple technique. Looking at these two photos the whole gallery wall idea seems both charming and totally do-able, and it is. But, what they don’t show you is the sweating, curling paper, flip-flopping, cats jumping in the air, tippy toes on a ladder version of this women, which, is the actual truth of it all.

Hence my original statement of things being a little more involved than I’d hoped. Overall though, this technique totally…
