 I discovered Pinterest a little while ago and fell in LOVE.
So I started my own little board there and I would be so pleased if you guys checked it out!
(It's still growing.)

Just a warning...it is soooo addicting.

And some fun.
Actually lots of fun (more on that later).

Happy Monday!

Moving. Bleh.

Sweater-H&M / Jeans-Thrifted / Shoes-Target / Necklace-Charolette Russe

My pants blend into the trim!

We are moving in 2 weeks!!
It just snuck up on me!
It doesn't help that we had to bump it up a week.
Travis grounded me from the computer cause apparently I am on it to much and not doing enough packing.
So I snuck on here while he's watching American Idol!

This is the first time that Travis and I have ever moved together and it is so crazy how much stuff we have!!
Does anyone have any tips?
 I feel so over whelmed by all the stuff and the clutter that is becoming my life!
Ok, I'm off to do more packing!!

The other day, I was hanging out on Craigslist (yup, I hang out there), and I found some awesome free crates.
So, I , of course, went and got them and they are lovely.
Now I am trying to decide exactly what to do with them.
I also recently just discovered a wonderful site called Pinterest.
Put the two together and this is what you get.

Who knew crates could be so pretty!

WIld and Crazy!

Tee-Oldnavy / Skirt-Gap Outlet /Belt-Joe Fresh / Shoes-Thrifted

I am freeeeeezing in these pictures, just so you know.

So my mom is awesome, but she haaaates (see? I do this alot) mixing patterns.
So I was totally against the idea of it for a long time.
But now, you can't even stop me.
Sometimes, if I don't have at least one pattern item on, I feel so boring!

My 2 favourite patterns are polka dots and stripes.
And plaid.
And floral.
And gingham.
Ok so they're all my fav, but I love polka dots alot.
So I was super excited about the Everyday, Everwear Polka Dot day!
It was just a matter of choosing which polka dot item to wear!
I got this skirt this last Friday on my trip to Seattle.
And I instantly knew it was gonna be THE polka dot item!
What patterns do you guys loooove??

A little about me.

Ok, so now that the challenge is over, I thought we could get to know eachother a little better.
So here are a few things about me.
1. I've been married for 4 years. And was married when I was 20!

2. We have a puppy names Duke, who we named after the college basketball team.

3. I am from Canada. Edmonton Alberta to be exact. And yes, we have a huge mall there.
4. I have 2 jobs. One full time and one part time.
5. I am in love with antiquing! I love buying old stuff and mixing it in with nice new stuff!!
6. I like to add extra letters to words to emphasize things. eg. loooooove
7. I'm a terrible listener, so I am constantly just smiling and nodding even though I don't usually know what people are saying. This tends to either get me in trouble, or make an awkward situation.
8. I'm a bad jumper. See here , here and here .

Now its your guys turn!
I wanna hear something about you!

Done. Done. And Done.

I am done!!
Woo freakin hoo!!
Let me tell you guys, I didn't think I would make it.
But I am so proud that I did and soo happy that I did the challenge.
Here is what I learned.
I can do anything.
No, I'm kidding. There's lots I can't do.
But I did learn that I can wear whatever I want.
I totally agree with  this lovely lady that people, for the most part, don't really care what you wear.
I was always a little nervous to wear ceratin things because I live in a small town where mostly everyone dresses somewhat the same. And I felt like I would stand out like a sore thumb. Maybe I did, but it didn't seem to matter.
This challenge made me more fearless.
And who doesn't wanna be a little more fearless?
That being said, I am soo excited to where whatever the heck I want tomorrow!

Seattle, here I come!

So while you are reading this, I will be driving to Seattle!
My sister in law and I have a tradition that in between our birthdays (mine Jan, hers Feb.) we go down to Seattle for a fun day of shopping.
However the last 2 years have been a bust.
Life has way of getting in the way, you know?
So this year, with is both moving, we wanted to go down and get some fun new stuff for each of our new houses!
We kinda missed the traditional time, but whatever!

Something needs to be done with my bangs!!

It kinda looks like I am growling in this picture.
Maybe I am.

I had to have these pics taken at work today because husband went out of town today.
So I'm sad and lonely.
This board I am standing in front of is where we write our jobs that we are working on.
Pretty intense right?
Looking at it makes me feel like I'm all important.
Don't let me fool you though.
I'm not that all important
Ok, I'm rambling!
Happy Thursday!!
(it's my friday. yay!!)

blogging is hard.

So blogging is hard.
It takes a lot of time and I am really not that witty.
I really like it though and I like getting feedback on what people think looks good and what doesn't.
So if you think something looks bad, don't be afriad to tell me.
Nicely though.
I'm sensitive.

One big reason blogging is hard for me though, is that I compare myself to people way to much!
I look at other peoples blogs and I think "they are funnier than me" and "they have waaaay more comments and followers than me".
I'm working on it.
Does anyone have any advice on blogging?
I can use all I can get!!

Oh Shoes!

I had a shoe dilema with this outfit.
I could not decided which shoes would look best with it.
I was even willing to cheat and wear something outside of my 30 but I didn't even have anything to cheat with!
Don't you just hate it when that happens!!

Let me tell you, I am so ready for this 30 for 30 to be over.
I am not even as excited as I thought I'd be about the shopping (which is shocking).
But I miss my clothes alot!
Lately I just keep thinking, oh this would be so much cuter with this shirt or that sweater.
I just hope that my clothes don't hold a grudge!!
