made with love!

it might be just a little bit early to start getting ready for valentines day... but i cant help it!!!!
i just love this time of year! i love all the pink and red decorations and love is in the air!!
 besides all the goodies and such, i always like getting all wrapped up in silly sentimental gifts and being romantic! and of corse my husband being so sweet and doing things he doesn't want to do, 
to make me happy! (ehem... safe haven!!!) (i just love him!!!!)  anywaaaay... back to the goodies!
i'm totally thinking heart shaped brownies! with lots of icing and sprinkles!
first of many v-day treats for the people i love! let the baking begin!

is anyone else a little ahead of the game like me?
what are your ideas??
 and how do you plan to celebrate with your friends and those special someones?!?!

2013! 27 days in...

i finally got to sit down and think about the things i want to focus on in the new year! 
i've been working on a few things but just last week i finally got to 
write them out and prioritize them and such.  

i read about a different approach to making resolutions that i might try this year... the idea is that you set goals for 52 day incriments 7 times a year.  so that at the end of 52 days you can reevaluate your goals and make adjustments or add new ones or whatever...

so here are just a few of the things on top of my list!

*strictly limit my sugar intake! (i'm basically addicted! :/ so i gotta kick that)
*have living room redecorated and kitchen remodeled.  this has been on my "to do" list for 
quite some time and i gotta get it knocked out!
*get back into the routine of running!  i used to run all the time, but lately i've fallen 
off a little so i need to get back in the groove!
ok i'm thinking that is PLENTY to get me started!!! it will be enough work hammering out these things so i'm not gonna add much to it until i conquer these!

thank you all for reading!!!

kelly green dining room!

recently i got to do a little design work for an amazing young couple that i love so much!  they were wanting to furnish their dining room, but she came to me complaining that she was overwhelmed with the empty space and had a hard time making decisions.  so my first task was to figure out what they wanted in the space.  after much discussion, picture pilfering and just a tiny bit of hesitation they finally agreed to a mostly sleek and traditional look to match the house and were brave enough to say yes to a bright kelly green credenza!!!! to add just a little funkiness and their personality!

i really love this room because it is just so "them". and i think they really enjoy it too.  
what was once an empty room is now a fun and energetic place, 
perfect for entertaining and enjoying friends and family!
i hope you all enjoyed!
thank you for reading!

january fashion challenge!

along with setting some goals for the new year i have a challenge for my self for the beginning of the year!  i'm not buying any new clothes (except nessesities) until march! whoa! so the idea is that i have to maximize the wear out of what i already have.   which i need to be doing anyway, considering i have lots of clothes in my closet that still have the tags on or that have gotten lost in the back and have been totally forgotten about. so i'll be sharing the outfits i find as i go along, but for now here are some of my inspirational pictures for outfit ideas to put together from things i already have...

wish me luck as i brave the depths of my closet!!!

first things first!

i have been mulling over and over some resolutions in my head and am excited to get started on them, however... i don't feel like i can think straight or commit to carrying out resolutions until MY OFFICE GETS ORGANIZED!!!  a messy office can just put all your good intentions on hold. so i will get on with my resolutions asap but until then my main focus is getting my office back on track! these are the pics i'm using for a little inspiration!

i'll keep you posted on the progress! wish me luck!
thank you all for reading!
