Taco Tuesday: More Exercising, Less Tacos

I've been having a blast working out on my Wii Fit, and I'm super sore. I'm addicted to the skateboarding challenge and the one where you are a bird and have to flap your arms to fly. I've only been doing it about 30minutes a day, but I think its worth it. I felt like the picture above was me...on my laptop constantly, so the past few days I've been leaving the computer alone and doing other productive things...like decorating for Christmas. Speaking of decorating, I am working on making paper chains, and had my glue bottle explode all over me! I'm not kidding! It was half a bottle of glue, I'm pretty sure it ruined my pj's. What have you been doing to counteract Thanksgiving feasting?

Fill In The Blank Friday: Black Friday Edition

1. Black Friday is for the birds .

2. Christmas shopping this year will include mostly handmade .

3. Holiday shopping makes me a bit stressed, I never know what to get/make everyone. I also try to make all the gifts and get behind schedule .

4. This year my Christmas list will include a lot of wished for items, but I'm not expecting anything. All I really want is a Tamagotchi .

5. Bargain hunter, or full price shopper? Bargains, yay! But I get tired of looking and just buy things full price, but I am hoping for a mostly handmade X-mas.

6. The best and worst things about shopping is planning on doing it early and all online, then not getting it done and stressing. Not sticking to my schedule so I'm not last minute shopping .

7. Online shopper or in-person shopper? I prefer shopping online. I wish I could just get everything on Etsy, but I usually wait too long so I can't get it on time. I'm proud that I did get a few things already from etsy :) .

I worked today and it wasn't too bad. I'm home relaxing with the puppies. I've gotta get my handmade holiday schedule in order, and send out my Christmas cards. :) Happy Weekend. PS it's my lil sister's bday today! She's super old!

Happy Turkey Day!



Today I:
Cooked a turkey.
Watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Said goodbye to Avery.
Drove to Justiceberg.
Ate lots of food.
Went to the hunting lodge.
Took some pictures.
Came home and ate more food!
Wouldn't the world be a better (perhaps fatter) place if everyone just ate pie instead of smoking?

PS if you can't tell I'm voting for the indians :)

Harry Potter Party DIY

So my sister is coming tomorrow, so I figured I should finish my decorations for her small Harry Potter party. The Harry image I found on weheartit.com, but after some research I found out the artist is Nina from Miso Happy. I used a font I had that resembled the Harry Potter font from the books/movies, and then photoshopped it together. I also made the simple banner in photoshop. I am putting these up for personal use, please DONOT reproduce for profit. I just wanted a little something to make my sister's birthday special. Please check out Nina's cute artwork!

That's How The Cookie Crumbles...


Well today I got a call from my old boss @ Pacsun. I'll be heading back over there just part time and not as a manager, which is awesome since that's what I need to supplement my subbing. So yay for part time jobs! I'm not super excited about working black friday, but that's how the cookie crumbles or whatever.

I've been watching lots of Jem and the Holograms on youtube. My husband sings along with the theme song when he's in the room, it's funny.


I'm wearing my 'you are what you eat' shirt from Dressing on the Side today. I am about to head over to have coffee and hang with T. Then I've got to come home and finish cleaning the guest bathroom. My mom, sis, and baby avery will be here tomorrow! I'm really excited!!

Brain Stew

I just woke up. I made myself get up because I was enduring the worst dream ever. It wasn't horrific enough to be a nightmare, but people were loosing limbs. I was at a Green Day concert, with my little sister (who I never saw again), my friend Dez, and some other girl I don't know. Green Day wasn't playing any Green Day songs, and people were just standing around smoking. (Very hipster of them). And people were trying to crowd surf, which was an epic fail. It was like all of the people in the crowd weren't even Green Day fans and either jumped on stage to break something or sat down. I was sitting down, putting on my shoes.

PS I miss old Green Day :(

Holiday Card

Working on my Christmas card, drinking some wine, and listening to Lisa Loeb.

Harry Potter Day! (aka Ashley's Bday)


My sister's birthday is the day after Thanksgiving, and we are talking about going to see Harry Potter. My sister is a huge fan of the movies, but has never read any of the books. :(
I am making her some german chocolate cupcakes, and hopefully I can whip up some HP themed decor. I usually don't get to spend the day with my sister on her birthday b/c we are both usually working on black friday. I am glad this year that we can hang out and do something special. Having birthdays near/on holidays stinks.

Who Needs a Real Camera When I Have an iPhone?

Warning! Image heavy post!

Over at A Bushel and A Peck, she did a blog post about what she wore for the week. This gave me the idea to post photos of my outfits found on my iphone. There were way more than anticipated, so lets get this party started!

This first photo is actually taken by my mama after one of my art shows. This is a vintage dress my husband bought me in Austin one year while we were there for SXSW. I just love it and wanted to include it :)

PS Most of these pictures are taken in fitting rooms, b/c I am a mall rat.
