Bad Friend

I've been a bad friend. I'm sorry.

I feel like I have claimed a million times before that it's been crazy hectic, but it really has been. 

I work for a company that just launched the new iPhone 4s and things have not made sense since! 

Blame that!!! k?!

Things don't seem to be settling down now either. So it seems I have a lot to share with you. 

Starting with where we will be this week.... 

Any guess?!

And boy am I excited. We are actually hopping on a plane today!!! I will be back in a week, but in the mean time I figured I'd try filling yall in on the DL!!

Me, crafty?!

Alright so low and behold I got a little crafty last night and I thought I would share my efforts with y'all.

You've ll seen the awesome Pinterest pins of door wreaths lately, right?

Being the skeptic I am I figured it wasn't actually possible or plausible to make "cute" felt flowers.... I my have been wrong though.

I promise I thought about busting out my dslr to document this for you, but I didn't... So your stuck with lame phone pictures. I'm a work in progress.

I will say I only spent something like 10 dollars in this project, so I'm happy with it. I am not happy with the blisters on my fingers from burning myself with the hot glue gun though!

The felt roses.

Finished project. It numbers look slightly crooked, I don't think they are though....?

No Pinteresting?!

You're probably thinking, no How Pinteresting?! What is the world coming to?! I'm thinking the same thing myself. 

The thing is, I've been pinning on my iPad a lot... and I haven't mastered the art of sharing those pins with you from my iPad.... and I haven't seen my laptop in days it seems. Poor thing must feel neglected. 

I think I may do the iOS5 update to it today too.... I'm just hoping I don't ruin it. 

In the meantime I thought I'd share with you a self portrait I took. I just received my tripod and remote clicker(?) thing and was participating in one of those.... 30 photos in 30 days deals, and this is my result. 

Notice the arched eye brow... that's my trying to warn the clicker that it needed to start working... also see hand on hip. 

 This would be my... opening the door... please don't notice my messed up blinds... sexy face???

Due to the fact that I love my furbabies, I thought I'd leave you with a picture of one. This is where I look if Chloe isn't getting into trouble... her favorite sleep spot...

 Yeah, adorable.

The good and The bad eh?

Yep, I'm still here

I was doing so well for a while... and then... I let it go. I think you can apply that statement to a lot in life actually... hmm. 

I think I can accurately claim that my life has been hectic. Newlywed, puppy, work, cleaning. I added cleaning, because I think it should be listed separate from newlywed. Housework sucks. 

Pre-wedding we had a maid once a week. I know... I'm a brat. When we became engaged we decided to save the money and put it towards the wedding. Almost two years later, we haven't gone back... yet. I really feel like I should do a better job keeping up with housework... it's just hard. 

I remember my mom saying that, and I can guarantee you I rolled my eyes. I would go back and slap myself for that one, now. 

Not to create excuses for myself or anything, but I work 48 hours a week and go to the gym for... round trip... about 2 hours. That leaves 8:30 PM tooooo.... 12? to clean. Who wants to clean after that kinda long day.

Any who, I've gotten much better. It's not so bad if you just try and maintain daily. 

I may never master the art of cleaning.

Still breathing.

Oh mah goodness, I feel like I haven't talked to yall in... forever. 

I know I pinned yesterday, but still...

It has been craAAAzy at work lately. It has really picked up lately and I find myself feeling like I ran around like a chicken with no head all day. Do you ever feel that way? Like you were really busy all day but when you try and list the things you accomplished... you draw a blank. 

Also, Gmail seems to be temporarily... out. What?! That actually happens??? I miss my email already! :) 

Lately I've been contemplating picking up the iPhone 4Gs. I'm not sold though. I don't want to just hop on the bandwagon because everyone else has. The one big motivational factor to do it????

Two words: Designer Cases

Can you also tell I have a thing for Kate Spade.... *sigh. :)

Wimpy Wednesday?

Ok, just kidding, I'm still participating in Oh, how pinteresting Wednesday. 

I am so out of it today though. I feel sick. It kinda sucks. So I'm really sleepy and slightly cranky, but I will try and keep that to myself today. That has been my goal just about all day. So, moving on.

I've kinda got the gimmies for this David Yurman ring. You best believe I will be saving up my budget for it. :)

I decided to share this one, because it looks a lot like my ring...and I love my ring. 

I really need new work shoes, but $200 on flats seems pretty steep?! Can anyone vouch for whether they are worth it or not??

I can't remember if I have pinned this or not. I think it would be a great for fall. UH loves my hair blonde, but he saw this and made the comment that it wasn't really that dark. Maybe I can convince him he likes it? haha

I'm participating in this photo challenge this month. I think I may do a weekly recap so that it doesn't take over my posts.

I wish I was curled up in this right NOW. 

I already have the canvas and want to do this. It was inspired by Kate Spade. It just makes me happy. 

I want to go see the Redwoods. This picture is so peaceful. Yum

Hope yalls Wednesday is going better than mine! :)
