Room Service.

I came across this pretty radical Furniture site:

Room Service.

I wish I could afford a few items...

I need to be rich.

Spring Cleaning?

I really want to move! But, that may not happen for some time at the rate I
m going on my Job search. So, I've decided to re-do my living room. I spent this morning and afternoon deep cleaning the kitchen and living room so, it's prepared for my big plans!

I've been wanting a real couch for quite a while now. And lately, I've actually been hunting for something affordable on my unemployment budget. I've mostly been anti-craigslist for a couch. But, I have seen a few that look actually nice. But still I'm spoiled and I'm really not sure how much I trust it. Sunday night, Jeremy and I took a trip to Ikea, and.... I found a couch. The price is good and its cute. It's cheap because it has no color options and does not come with any warranty. Which is fine for me. I'm hoping someday I'll have money to afford a sectional sofa. This just needs to make me happy for the next few years. Anywho, It's a nice brushed brown twill. I wish I could post a photo but I can't. I'm hoping to buy it next week!!!! weeee! I just need to ask my dad for use of his truck...

Next on my list is to keep surfing craigslist for the rest of what I want:
-A 5x7, or 8x10 Area rug, that's not ugly. (So far this is the most difficult, because rugs are bannkk) I really need to protect the nice bamboo flooring we have, though.
-Dining table with 4-6 chairs. (I currently have 2 hopefuls, so we'll see)
-Coffee table, and 1 or 2 side tables (Jeremy has decided he wants to build these possibly, which would be awesome!)
-TV Armoire or some sort of proper TV stand, entertainment unit.

All items need to be free or under $50.
I'm not too too worried about paint finish and condition to a certain point. I'll take the best deals is it's something that can be painted or easily repaired.
It's been fun searching so far. Wish me luck!

I think I'm too embarrassed for a before photo. But, I'll have an after, someday....

Show and Tell.

I know, I've been neglecting this blog. But, I have been distracted. Not a huge loss. Anywho, I plan on making my blog much less personal anyway once I switch over and get my spiffy new site and URL. But, real quick here's one super personal entry. Hope it's not too annoying. I just really wanted to share a couple photos I'm really happy about.

Jeremy's return! This photo I took of us on Jeremy's 27th Birthday last week.

This is a great one!!!! Jeremy and his niece, Elora. After we took her to Bounce-o-Rama to play with Lolo and Ryan B! We've gotten to steal her away from Jeremy's sister a few days and take her to play with the Ry Guy!!! I love her smile! it kind of makes my heart melt. And, I love that in this photo, Jeremy and her have the same smile!!!! So related.

Okay, I'll try to steer away from the boring personal stuff now. Just wanted to share my happiness!!!!

Nude picks.

Just a quick note to mention my favorite polishes at the moment. Since discovering the new Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line, particularly the shade beige blast, I've become more obsessed with Nude nail polish. It really ALWAYS looks good, I feel like. It's kind of a fool proof shade. I've cleaned out a lot of my colors now.

So, in case anyone's interested. Here are a few highly recommended Nude colors:

#1) Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in 03 Beige Blast
#2) OPI in Bare in Trafalgar Square
#3) Rimmel Lycra Wear 10 in Milk Chocolate

But wait! Bck to the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, TRY IT! it's amazing. Even if you don't like nudes, they have a whole line of colors and they seriously dry instantly and it's amazing. I LOVE it.
