DIY Is Never Easy.

I finally started "decorating" my room!
After almost a year and a half of living there I drove to IKEA to grab a few things.
The first, curtains, which I swear will be the death of me!
For over an hour I put hole after hold after hole into my wall above and around the window and could not get away from the studs! Who does that? Who puts studs all around a window?
I can see where the person before me put their curtain rod, and after attempting to put mine in the same place, found that my rod is not long enough! Luckily, Ryan is on his way here today and I was nice enough to let him know that a project is awaiting him the moment he arrives.  I have lined up all the tools at his convenience.
Hopefully he can turn my disaster into a success!
This here is what I'm aiming for. Maybe I didn't screw the holders in high enough....good to know.

I also bought picture frames....that are to big for the pictures I bought a year ago.  So instead of returning them for a smaller size, I kept them and taped the pictures to white printing paper! Some may call this 'thinking on ones toes' or some may call it what it really is, to lazy to return to the store and exchange for proper sizes.
I was so excited to get a jump start on making my room more like me and wound up finding that everything I bought is far to small...I guess my room is like me.

It will all come together, I just know it. And once it's finished, not going to lie, I'm going to show off my new and improved room! Who knows maybe some painting will happen too...or maybe I won't...till next time.

This place reminds me of Santa's Workshop! Except it smells like mushrooms and everyone looks like they want to hurt me. -Buddy

Merry Christmas!

Hello Cold Weather..I Mean Warm...I mean Cool...

Since Mother Nature cannot decide whether to give us fall, winter, or sometimes spring some days, I like to be prepared. I love wearing scarves and am usually wearing them the same old tired way over and over again. Loving the look I get from the infinity scarf, I would like to give my other scarves some attention also.
For those that are tired of wearing their scarves the same way day after day, here are 6 different ways to wear a scarf!
I can't wait to try them all, although a few do look challenging.

Do you have other ways to wear a scarf that is not listed here?

A Fun Start To A Fun Night.

Happy December!

With the fall semester finally over, all I can think about is the free time I will acquire, having Tuesdays and Thursdays open for the next few weeks! I'm ready to catch up with my friends and celebrate the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012!
Yes, I know Christmas is right around the corner, and so I found these cute appetizer ideas one can use for a fun Christmas party or better yet, New Years Eve party!
Who wouldn't want to nibble on a small stack of pancakes followed by milk and a cookie!
It's fun taking an idea and putting a festive spin on it!
I can't wait for what's to come!
