Socks and Hearts


I love Valentine's day. I can't shake it, and I don't want to. Some may think it is a commercial holiday and I totally get that. But that's not why I love it so much… It's the clever, cheesy, stupid valentines that  I dig. I'm especially a fan of puns and patterned socks.

Also-You won't find a pair of serious/normal socks in my drawer. Crazy socks are like a hidden secret party and I always want in on that.


So this year's valentine came to me when I was getting my sock fix at forever21. I saw these adorable guys and immediately thought of "you rock my socks." Also is that a sexual reference? I started thinking about that too. That's awkward if it is...

I just took some left over cork drawer lining and cut it for the band around the socks.  I printed the sayings on computer paper and then glued them onto the hearts. So easy!
 I love how graphic and simple they are.


If you can't find any of these at your local forever21, try their website!  Target also had some cute ones.  Of course…

Do you guys give valentines? I'd love to hear about yours!

Changes



Welcome to the new layout and name!  

 This is something that has been in the works for quite a while, and it is so exciting to see it happen. We (and when I say that I mean my brother-in-law, Andy , doing the work while I sit there with glazed eyes and a confused look.  And then when he finishes I always say something like "That looks good! Can you make it a circle?" I love you Andy, you handle my crazy like a boss.) are still working on it, so please bear with some weirdness that might be taking place.  

I will be back a little later on to talk more about the switch!

Happy New Year!



Happy 2014! We rang in the new year with confetti cannons, crepes, and some really good dance moves.  I hope you guys had a blast welcoming the new year and kissing 2013 goodbye! I always make a couple of resolutions and I like to post them here to help make me accountable. So here we go!

1. Be Kind. 

I consider myself a kind person, but I want to really focus on this.  I want to be kind in my actions, thoughts, and words.  Lately I have just felt so bogged down by how people treat each other. I have a couple of "pay it forward" ideas like pay for a strangers coffee or leaving random notes but I would love to hear suggestions! I am seriously excited about this resolution!

2. Make a list and Stick to it

This really applies to home decor/projects.  Here is my problem-I go into a store and find things I love, buy them, and then forget that I really should've been looking for baskets because that's what I truly need.  I get really excited and then completely blank.  It's incredibly annoying and counter productive.  So I've made a list on my phone and I am sticking to it.  First off is wallpaper! I've been wanting to wallpaper a certain wall for like 3 years. It's time guys.

3. Dedicate time and energy to this blog

Last year I worked on a new design and name for the blog and it just never got off the ground.  Because I was waiting on it I really didn't blog that much. It was a huge bummer! I plan on blocking out time for pictures and posts.  Since I am graduating this year I will have so much more time and energy to accomplish this.  Let me tell you, design school is so incredibly draining.  I am going to miss it, but I am looking forward to a better schedule.

4. Quality over Quantity

This applies especially to clothing.  I love me some bargains.  However, I've noticed that in the long run it costs more money because the construction doesn't hold up as well.  I will still be looking for deals, but not for everything.  I want to work on replacing items in my closet, especially shoes.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out.  

Did you guys make resolutions? If so I would love to hear them!
