Hey there, nice to meet you! I'm 26, engaged, and live in the Midwest. I love good books, bright lipstick, and spending ridiculous amounts of time on Instagram and Pinterest. Let's be friends!

Walking on a dream

Last night I went out with Kaity and Lisa for karaoke and it was hilarious. Don't worry, I didn't sing anything! ;) But, I did do the Cupid Shuffle! I don't think I'll ever be tired of that dance, it reminds me of fun and crazy times with friends two summers ago!

In between listening dancing and listening to people sing horribly, we managed to get a few pictures!

Me, Lisa and Kaity grinning like the fools that we are!
Photobucket, triangle of friends!

Now I've gotta get to bed....I have a doctor appointment tomorrow morning (yearly checkup) and since it's 2 hours away, I need to wake up way earlier than I'd like. Justin's coming with me and we're going to visit my mom afterwards, so it should still be a fun day :)

Tik Tok

It's been a busy week for me so far!

On Sunday I went with Kaity and her friend Krystal down to Fort Madison. The plan was to clean Kaity's classroom. We ended up taking everything out of the supply closet and it was ridiculous how much stuff we found in there! Boxes and more boxes, all full of art supplies...I don't think she's going to have to buy much more.

By far the best thing we found was a set of famous art masks. I decided to try on 'The Scream' :D


Isn't that the greatest mask ever?!

Besides that I've been working the past few I seriously had 10 returns in a row to take care of, it was crazy! Tomorrow is my day off though, so Justin and I are going to have a date day. :)

You gotta tip on the tightrope

The past few days have been busy, busy!

First, a lovely picture to show you all:


It's a nutcracker doll....they're so creepy! Something about their teeth that go chomp chomp and the scary looks on their faces..uggh. My friend/coworker Cassie thinks it's hilarious and made me this not as creepy as the real thing though!

I went with Kaity late last week to a teaching interview at a school 3 hours away. The ride was hilarious, we had some really good discussions about art and I read us random articles out of an old Seventeen magazine while she drove.

We went shopping after the interview and both found some really cute clothes and accessories. Then while in the dressing room of Ragstock, Kaity got a call from the school she interviewed at....she got the job!! She's going to be an art teacher and I'm so happy for her :) We were jumping up and down outside the dressing room and shrieking like fools about the news...the people working at Ragstock probably thought we were crazy!

Sadly I don't have a photo of the jumping and shrieking, but here's one of the snazzy rings we found:


Yesterday my friend Jan and I hung out with my roomies for awhile. After having pizza we decided it was time for a random shopping trip. We bought parachute animals, bubbles, and water guns....yeah, we're cool.

After tossing the parachute animals down to the second floor of my building way too many times, we decided it would be fun (and wicked) of us to go attack Justin with our new water guns. We snuck up next to his car and called him. When he opened the door he saw us grinning back at him while spraying his car. Then we attacked him, until he stole our guns and got us back!

Today I've been having a lazy day of sorts. While catching up on my reading I noticed this little grasshopper spying on me from the window:


Also, before I forget, this is my outfit today:


I got the dress from Target last summer. And here's a closeup of the necklace, because I don't think I've shown it before:


Found that at a vintage store...very simple and elegant...kinda the opposite of my usual jewelry, but I like it.

Wow, this ended up being a really long entry! I'm gonna say good night now and get back to my reading. Here's one more picture for you. It's of tonight's gorgeous sunset, taken out my bedroom window!

Oh baby you, you've got what I need!

So is it weird that Justin and I are sitting here singing a song we saw/heard on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia? Probably. But I like it.

I just discovered that I could have seen Tool, my favorite band ever, if only I had known they were on tour and only 4 hours away! Gah, I've been wanting to see them I have to wait at least another year!

In other news, one of our mice, Lady Gaga died last week. So now we only have Ke$ha. I think she misses her sister, but we put a stuffed monkey next to the cage so she won't be as lonely.

Both of my roommates are gone right's kinda weird having the apartment to myself. I'm not technically alone most of the time though, because Justin is here a lot. Like right now :)

I'll try to be back tomorrow with a more interesting post...maybe an outfit picture or two...we shall see!
