always a little late to the game.


as in, I'm way late to getting these posted and we were way late to getting to Green Bluff for the Fall festivities.  Pumpkin & apple picking, corn mazes, pumpkin donut eating...
but we did still manage to get a basketful of peppers and some colorful photos.

everythings alright

Hi hi.  I've got so much time right now, because I'm basically bed ridden after a laparoscopic surgery to remove endometriosis; so I was looking through my photos and saw I had these I'd never posted!
 
I'm a little uneasy about posting these pictures because I ended up having to return the skirt.  I reallllly wanted to love it, but the fabric was just too weird and rumply and even after ironing it still wouldn't hold the right shape.  My husband said, "It's cute but is it supposed to be that bulky and frumpy around the waist?" - anyways, it went back but I'd taken these pictures one day after doing etsy shots because I hadn't worn my Jeffreys in so long, and this seemed a good time to dust them off and feel 25 again.

Ten Minute Makeup//Smokey Eye//Natural

Hellooooo! I am somewhat embarrassed but equally excited to show you this makeup tutorial I made for youtube! I am shy and awkward so this is a big step. I just thought it'd be fun, and it was!-but I still have lots to learn about making videos, so please forgive the mediocre quality. Anyways, I want to make more, but here's my first run at it! Actually I made one a few years ago here! At least I'm improving, right?

diy pet bed

hi guys!  I do a lot of DIYs around the house but, because I work full time, I usually end up doing them at night and therefore, taking photos of the process just doesn't do it justice...even this one, I did at night so the quality is terrible, but you can at least get the idea.

What you'll need:
-a box (this one is from Costco)
-paint ($1-2)
-foam measured to fit the bed of the box (Joann Fabrics $6)
-safety pins (I just pinned the fabric to the foam on the underneath side...I'm pretty lazy and just want to get to the finish LOL)
-fabric (I'd painted this one in a previous DIY you can see here - $3)
-paint samples (Lowes-free!...I also have a shape cutter outer thing leftover from our wedding so I used that to make her name banner)
-small pillows (the deer one is from my sister and the blue one I sewed real quick)
-toys!

First, I'll introduce you to the little muffin, DAISY!


We can't even believe how cute and sweet she is.  Never thought I'd fall for a dog that's part Chihuahua but this little girl just needed us and we needed her.  She's been a total ham and a great addition to our family, even though at times we are both too exhausted to even move.


She doesn't sleep in it as much as I'd like, mostly because our Lab/Great Dane mix Auggie has a giant dog bed that's already broken in and stinky that she prefers.  She thinks she's as big as him, it's pretty hysterical.

Anyways,
there it is!  Quick and easy, and a total of around $11!
