Pop Culture: Hello Kitty

Everyone knows I am addicted to Hello Kitty! Hot Topic has been coming out with the raddest Hello Kitty Stuff! Here are a few of my MUST HAVES!

 I actually own these shoes of awesomeness, and they are super comfy!

 I still don't own a Hello Kitty swim suit, which is surprising since I tend to shop in the little girls section of Target. I think this one is cute and classy!

 This shirt makes me think of Spiderman, and who doesn't want to think about Spiderman?

I think these tights are amazing and this is my favorite color of blue! I think I could wear these everyday!

What are some of your favorite Pop Culture finds? Don't know? Check out Hot Topic's website, they have a huge selection!

That's What She Said Sunday: Cook With Awesomeness

I'm having a friend over for dinner after work, and I'm not sure what to make. I was thinking maybe garden risotto, or something along those lines. 

What do you like to make when you have friends over for dinner?

Happy Sunday!

What's The What Wednesday

This week has been going great besides a few minor health issues. I'm loving my new job, and enjoying the free time I now have! Hopefully pretty soon, I will get some projects done around here...fingers crossed!

1. Tokyo Fashion is one of my favorite reads. This is one of my favorite looks this week!
2. I want to do something like this to a pair of my shoes!

3. I have heaps and heaps of clean laundry to put away!

4. Mermaid dress!

5. Petting fun

6. I loved Sherri's zombie unicorn dress!
7. I bought this book for Avery for her birthday. She likes to sing and she likes to read and I love Lisa Loeb, so it's the perfect gift! haha

What's the what with your Wednesday?

That's What She Said Sunday

I miss Full House! Me and my sis watched it religiously! 
Yesterday I started my new job and it was fun, even though it was super busy. It's also a change of pace for me style wise. Sunday's are the only day I can wear jeans, other than that it's cute dresses and skirts everyday. I don't mind, because I feel like I'm getting dolled up everyday, and I feel better about myself and the day ahead. Just add red lipstick and go! 

Happy Sunday!

A Day In Between

Today is my day off, and only day in between jobs. Here are a few things I've been loving this week:

1. Josh Ritter-The Curse. My husband and I can't stop listening to this record.

2. No-Bake Strawberry Ice Box Cake.  I've been wanting to make something like this forever!
3. This Jolene Dolly Parton t-shirt.
4. This cute outfit from Kendi Everyday.
5. This dress from LeahGoren on Etsy. I wish I could afford one!
6. Natalie Portman.
7. Crazy cute kittens. I just want to squeeze it!
My husband is super excited because the materials he ordered to make his own beer should be here today. He's cute, but he keeps telling me the house is going to smell like booze. I'll try to take pictures of the process. 

Happy Thursday!

PS Stay tuned for a giveaway coming soon!

Being Quirky: Story of My Life

I love this! I wish I could've seen the whole show!

A Very Merry Hipster Valentines with the Millers

Clint and I don't really make a big deal about V-day. We're happy to be together everyday. Every year we get Chinese take out because trying to go out to eat is killer, you'd probably starve to death while you wait for your table.This year we decided to start some new traditions, buy each other vinyl (we are trying to increase our collection) and make homemade chocolates.

 I truthfully got the idea about homemade chocolates from watching too much anime, and I was going to surprise him (but I suck at keeping secrets from him haha). So we are going to make it together, we got little mustache molds to round out our hipster-ness.

This is a quick pic of the 2 records he got for me, I was so excited! I can't wait to listen to them this morning! (If you can't tell they are Dolly Parton, old school style!) I got Clint the new Josh Ritter record with "The Curse" on it. We saw him at SXSW last year and he played that song and it was amazing, you should check it out!

What are you doing for V-day? Whatever it is, I hope it's fun! xo

Flash Back Friday

This is me and my friend Dez back in college in the stairwell of my dorms. That is a bass guitar on my back.

Somebody That I Used To Know

I can't get this song out of my head, and now it's playing at work.

Fill In the Blank Friday

1.  I started my blog because   I wanted to share what I was up to with friends and family, and have somewhere to talk about stuff I make.

2.   One thing I love seeing on other blogs   is DIY, new music, and people just being themselves.

3.  Something I love about blogging   is meeting new people from all over, and being able to learn about all sorts of things.

4. A favorite blog post of mine is probably  my...I have no idea haha, I like doing my little weekly things like Taco Tuesday and That's What She Said Sunday.

5. Something my friends in real life know about me that I've never before mentioned on my blog is   ... I'm not really sure, I think I translate really well onto my blog. If anything, sometimes I am bit too straight forward and blunt in real life, with a little snark on the side.
7.  Some things I tend to avoid doing on my blog are   being overly negative and not being myself.

taking a road trip to somewhere warm and sunny....

What do you kinda feel like doing?

Taco Tuesday: Getting Arty

I love finding new artists. It inspires me to get working on my list of projects.  I found Audrey Pongracz on tumblr. Check out her stuff!
PS sorry for the lack of updates, I've been watching tons of Supernatural and hanging out with my husband....hopefully soon I'll finish a little project I've been working on and have another off to work!

Fill in the Blank Friday

1.   If money wasn't an issue, the first thing I'd cross of my life list is     visiting Japan, I really need to go to Harajuku   .

2.    Ketchup in my Mac n Cheese or French Fries and ice cream     is something I like that other people think is weird.

3.  If my life were a movie right now, the title would be       "Confessions of a Shopaholic"    .

4.  Three things I am looking forward to this month are     my new job    ,     getting to see my nieces (hopefully)   and     eating tacos  .

5.  My favorite song to sing in the shower is   whatever is stuck in my head or comes on my  shuffle...and sometimes the Jurassic Park theme song  .

6.  If I found out that the production of     Perrier    was ending this month, I'd go out and buy as much as I could tomorrow.

7.  One thing I'll never grow tired of is    my silly husband and wacky pups, we're kinda like the Scooby Gang  .
