Pinterest and a round-up

Happy Saturday everyone! This week flew by. I hope you all have fun St. Patrick’s Day plans. We have a long list of things to do today. We’re supposed to go to the parade, and then we’re going to go to some bars most likely, then eventually eat and have a St. Paddy’s dinner at the bf’s family’s house. However, I kind of would rather just stay home instead of going to bars at 9am, UGH! I’m just so tired. Hopefully I’ll get over that feeling. I do love St. Patrick’s day!

Posts I’m lovin':

  1. Erika made a post on volunteering. I wish I had time to volunteer, it will have to wait until the summer time after I graduate though. Between having a full-time career, full-time MBA classes, dogs and a house, I literally feel like I have no time for anything
  2. Check out Serendipity’s Guide to Saving’s Side Income Update.  I know all of you always love reading those!
  3. Bridget thinks just like me, and her goal is to now make more money. Yes there are more things out there that I an cut from our budget, but I like everything that I spend my money on. I’d rather make more money.
  4. Daisy has a long list of things she wants to do when she graduates, it looks like a lot of the same things I want to do!

Interesting search keywords:

  1. Disgusting hair
  2. I like expensive dates
  3. Shopping for cheese

That’s all the interesting search keywords I had. I’m confused…

Hope you all have a great day!

My Bucketlist, and a little depressing tidbit about my Dad…

I’ve seen some other bloggers do this, and I thought this was a great idea! There are a lot of things I want to do in life. My dad is my inspiration for most of my goals in life, I wish he was here still. I still vividly remember the day that we watched The Bucket List at the movie theater together, just me and him. It was probably the most depressing day of my life, because the movie is about two older men who are dieing and they set out to do a list together.

When we watched this movie, it was just about a month before my dad passed from cancer. He couldn’t even sit in the theater chair or his wheelchair because he was always so sick and uncomfortable and he eventually had to lay of the movie theater ground. I still remember people watching and staring and calling us crazy, and I just wanted to hit all of them. Anyways, he loved the movie, and he accomplished so many things on his bucket list. He traveled pretty much EVERYWHERE and did everything. I have so many photo albums as proof of his adventures. I probably have hundreds on completely packed and huge albums. Anyways, here I go:

What’s on your list? Are yours similar to mine?

I need to make a dessert plate for Thanksgiving

For one of the BF’s and I’s Thanksgiving dinners, we need to only bring one plate, and that is dessert. The BF’s family is probably around 100 people altogether (immediate family, cousins, uncles, aunts, second cousins and etc) and everyone meets on Thanksgiving and it is wonderful.

I come from a very small family (where we have NEVER had a Thanksgiving dinner, except for the immediate family), so I love going to his Thanksgiving dinners.

Anyways, there’s tons of food at this Thanksgiving.  There’s around 15 different kinds of dessert and around 30 HUGE plates/trays of food on the serving table. It’s wonderful!

So on to the question, what should I make for our “dessert”? It can be anything really, as there are so many different desserts to choose from.  Here are my choices:

What do you think? Do you have any other ideas?

Turning my extra bedroom into a CLOSET

I talked to the BF the other day about turning one of our extra bedrooms into a closet.  I have kind of a big closet right now.  It’s in a den right now, but there’s no window in it, and I’d rather have a little sunlight and more room.  Two of our extra bedrooms are just sitting empty (our third extra bedroom is a guest bedroom). I of course don’t want to spend a lot of money, so a lot of stuff will probably have to be made by me.

And he said he’s good with the idea! I want to paint one of the walls striped like below.

And I want a nice chair in there and an ottoman. I plan on putting everything together myself, so it’ll be hard and a lot of work, but it’ll be worth it. I figure I could find closet book shelf type furniture at Lowes or Home Depot and just have a couple rows of that.  And then I want a really big mirror.

Any tips? Do any of you have a big closet that I could grab some ideas from?

Things on Pinterest that I’m loving.

I’m extremely addicted to Pinterest. It’s a problem.  Here’s what I love right now.

I love the snowman idea. It looks easy and very cute. This year, instead of just wrapping presents in boring wrapping paper, I want to make them look really pretty and make the wrapper a present in itself pretty much. I know I’m not getting married, but I just love that dress. And those shoes would be perfect for all the holidays coming up. And last but not least, I love that photo wall.

Because of Pinterest, I have around 100,000,000,000 things that I want to make.  Hopefully I get started soon.

Are you addicted yet?

Also, I don’t know if any of you have ever heard of Heartsy, but they have  a website that is kind of like a Groupon for Etsy shops. It’s pretty cool and they always have cute stuff! I always find myself looking at it.
