NYE 2012

I just got back from a bike ride to grocery store, lugging 2 bottles of Andre Champagne in my basket. I found party poppers and noise makers! I can't wait to dance the night away covered in glittered and glam! Happy NYE all! This year I will drink more tea, run as many 5K as possible, spend more time with my boyfriend, take on more freelance work, finish decorating my home and buy less clothing (ya right). I have accomplished so much in 2011. I got my first job out of college. I am in a serious relationship, for the first time in years. I got my first house and began paying all my bills on my own. My main goal for the year is to stop rushing through life. Its not a spring its a marathon. I think this will enhance the level of my work and bring those I love closer. Bring it on 2012!

Rachel Zoe Project

Ok, this show has changed my vocabulary and brought it to another level. Photo on Right: Dying over this neck piece, how fabulous would you feel in this on NYE? Although, you might wake up with a hang over and some neck pain. Rachel's love for fur and cocktail rings are rubbing off on me. It's hilarious how much Rachel and her husband Rodger remind me of my relationship with my boyfriend. He's always scolding me for large clothing purchases. *at-least I know Rachel can relate.

Let the curtain fall

I love the pattern and shape shown in the dress and painting. I don't know what to call it, but it does remind me of those red draping show curtains. Any who I just finished this painting and wanted to show it to you all! This is a fun size canvas to get if you have a small wall space to fill. If you'd like to purchase this dress click here.

Tuesday Treats

I love all things crispy, so having a crispy corn tortilla made on all this difference for this meal. Spray pam on both sides of the tortilla and let them brown. Slice up tomatoes, avocado, green onion. Grill corn & black beans. Throw on cheese at the end. Yum!

Ikea Binge

As promised I came through with a new desk. Well not exactly a desk. Ikea had a long dining table for $70. I couldn't resist plus I can't complain about extra space. I also got this sweet rollie chair, although my house seems to be on a slant because I can't sit without sliding across the room. Maybe I won't be getting as much work done as I thought!

Blue Mind

Work Space

Having a good work station makes all the difference. I am devoting the weekend to making a new desk. I hope to get 2 sawhorses and a large piece of ply wood. A white lacquer finish would be amazing. Wish me luck!

Scalloped Potatoes

Its one of those days where you throw anything and everything you've got from the fridge in a bowl. This is what we came up with. Boiled 3 large red potatoes, sliced em up, then fried them. For toppings we added sprouts, tomatoes, crushed pepper, garlic salt and green onions. Of course we added a little hot sauce and ketchup for an extra kick of flavor. We were able to make this in under 30 mins. Not bad for a quick lunch break. Happy Thursday!
