Into my new apartment tomorrow, and tonight I am staying at my dads place... so, no wifi for me (his wifi won't work for my laptop somehow!) So I just wanted to make a quick post to say once I am all settled in, I can hopefully update my blog with some pictures of the new place? Ehhh? Also, I have a few posts in mind, so look out for those! In the meantime, comment, tweet, or email me and we can chat! While I won't have wifi, I don't mind using the data on my iphone to reply on social networking sites : D What is everyone up to this week?

Love at first sight...

compliments of Ikea. My first time going there was today. How in the world have I never been there before?! Also, why did I not go BEFORE I already bought most of the stuff I needed for moving into my apartment this weekend? I wanted so much there! Since I am still SO excited about going there, and want to sort of "save" some of my 'wants' from there for future reference, I'll indulge you all with some of those goodies : ) Feel free to send me a link of something you love from there!

Do you see this!? It's like a little tiny dresser PLUS a jewelry box. I adore this. I already have a jewelry box, but I would not mind having this too! You could put necklaces, rings, bracelets, you name it-it would be awesome! I think I would also put headbands, hair ties, and bobby pins in one of the drawers. It would be nice to just have all the little accessories in one place, so they don't get misplaced. Plus, it is nice if you have more "luxurious" or valuable/sentimental items put in a proper place.

Is it wrong that I could barely walk away from this duvet cover and pillowcases?

 I just kept imagining this with tan accent pillows-it seemed so clean, a little beachy. If there was one thing I wanted to take home with me more than anything, it was this! What do you think about it?(If someone wants to buy me this, I am NOT objecting ;)   )

Want to see something I actually did buy, since I didn't get one yet for my apartment bathroom?

This little cutie. Simple, affordable, and just enough design to look nice in my bathroom! My step mom also bought one!

I think this would go great with the duvet cover... I want it all so bad! I really want to redecorate my bedroom now haha. 
 Now you all know the things I am pretty much drooling over at Ikea...and counting down the days until I go back!

My Weekend and What I Will Be Doing ALL WEEK

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Hey there! First off... I missed Sunday Social : ( Seriously one of my favorite type of posts to do! Is it wrong to do a belated Sunday Social and just not link-up? Hmmm. Anyways, I missed the link up because I was visiting with my dad, and their wifi won't work on my laptop! Such a bummer. I used so much data probably on my iphone checking twitter and instagram, so I didn't want to try posting anything for the blog via phone! Does anyone remember me posting on twitter that since I got an iphone finally, I'd post a lot more on instagram? Well- maybe that hasn't increased much, but that doesn't mean I haven't taken a million and one pictures! I think everone knows by now (if you have been following me awhile) that I like having tons of pictures in posts! Soooo if you are ready to be visually entertained...
 So maybe this set of pictures isn't exactly from this past weekend-but it was recent! One of my brothers and I, together at a county fair; My brother sipping on his coffee (our family LOVES coffee...even at a county fair when it is 90 degrees); Caleb (brother) with my dads dog Jake. Jake has an inoperable tumor on his snout, and he was just adoring Caleb, cuddling up next to him! Can we all think happy thoughts for Jake? Poor guy could use so positive thoughts : (

On a lighter note, random pictures from the past week: From top left to bottom right: My nephew Kierce had me read to him (he is such a HAM!) Avocado sushi (the only "sushi" I will touch). My two brothers just being cuties in the car. Myself and the boyfriend after he FINALLY got back from Cancun.
I made a deal with myself at the beginning of summer. Save EVERYTHING I make from working as a waitress-except the loose change. Then, all the change at the end of summer would be spending money. I actually didn't stray too far from that deal with myself. I spent maybe $200 on miscellaneous things this summer (snacks, some gas, a makeup item or two, and a few other things here and there). However... I had A LOT less change than I thought I would. I guess that is good, because I had way more bills, instead of people leaving me change. So, I cashed in my $63 in change, and bought 3 shirts from H&M, a MAC lipstick, and a face primer and makeup bag from the body shop (2 items for $10 total!) this past weekend when some of my family and I went to the mall. 

 Top left: UD Naked Skin Foundation Sample, & Cover FX Matte Primer something something something : ) ;  brown thing=a thing to help do buns (bought it four my cousin!); random lotion sample; shoes my mom bought me from Journeys for $10!; MAC bag; The Body Shop products.

The new lipstick I got! MAC "Hot Gossip" which is a cremesheen. I adore it! The bottom picture of me wearing it is obviously a little off. Keep an eye out for a post about my favorite items recently, and you should see it more true to color!

Tired of pictures yet? Almost done : )

What I wore! Sheer navy top from Abercrombie, shorts from American Eagle, necklace from Forever 21, and shoes from Payless!

Quick family pic before leaving the mall!

That is everything from my weekend-as for what I will be doing all week and upcoming weekend? Packing, getting stuff done, and cleaning because Saturday I move into my apartment! Yay! Can't wait to show some pictures!
