Been a while...

A lot has been happening in my sweet little southern life...
It was been a little complicated....

Miss B and I have moved into an apartment. Cute, quaint...and not enough room for all our junk! 
Here's a few pictures....

Quaint Living Room

Looking into the kitchen

Spacious Kitchen

Huge Bathroom

Thank goodness for built-ins

And this is how we move couches without trucks :)
So that's been going on with the holidays right now...hopefully I'll get all my ducks in a row soon and get back on my feet! Until posts will be far and few until I get everything settled!

Oh movies...we all love movies right?
I LOVE movies. I can watch movies all the time. Who needs cable?
Okay..maybe I do for my relentless TV Show Series watching lol

But really, I can watch a good movie many times. I have Time Traveler's Wife on DVR and I've already watched it 10 times and we've only lived in this house for 4 months! are my current favorites and some I want to see...

Went and saw this at the Drive-in and LOVED IT!! It was so cute and so true to life!!

Love and Other Drugs - want to see it!! It comes out the day before Thanksgiving!

Morning Glory is already out and it also looks cute! Who doesn't love Rachel McAdams?!

 And last but not least - Burlesque, gotta love some Cher...and's kinda funny that she doesn't look like she's aged a day!

Another week…

Things have been so busy with my work at home job and my work at Chelsea’s home job lol.

Last Friday I got my hair done. Here’s the result - IMG00274-20101029-1118a

I love it!

It’s similar to the cut I had before but now it’s just has more shape to it! It’s fun though.

We had a great Halloween!


My little fairy!


Fairy and Iron Man




Well I’ve got a busy weekend ahead so I won’t be around much, and another busy week to follow so I might be taking a break!

New Do!

This Friday…I have a hair appointment…

This chick is getting a new do…well I’ve been down this road before and I miss it terribly…especially since I’ve been blonde almost my entire life!

Here are my inspiration shots!

I am loving the choppiness and the color!

I don’t have thick hair but I’m thinking she doesn’t either! So I will just have to learn to fix it good!

Life As We Know It

As soon as I saw the previews for this movie, I knew I wanted to see it. Every time I saw the previews again, my anticipation got that much more.

Well, it finally came out on October 8th and while I couldn’t see it then…or this past weekend…I was finally going to get a chance to see it this weekend and then guess what?!?

Being Productive….

So I’ve been really busy lately helping my friend Chelsea with Southern Fried Paper, she has a trunk show today and she’s donating 20% of her Pink line to Susan B. Komen For the Cure. So it’s been busy!

Today was the first day I’ve been at home and had a little time on my hands, so I camped out in the garage.


I got all of this going on today. I have one more end table that I haven’t even started yet but I think for 2 hours work, this is pretty good!

I’ve already been scoping out new projects on Craigslist!


Look at these gorgeous night stands! I’m thinking light grey or white with crystal knobs!! They are so simple and classic!


This beauty would be gorgeous in a grey/blue color!


And I love the simplicity of this double bed!

I’ve emailed all of the sellers about them just to see what was happening with the pieces and see if I could see them and what kind of price we are looking at! Who knows!

I’m hoping to get all my pieces finished in the next week. I had promised to have them done like 3-4 weeks ago but life hasn’t let that happen.

I’ll update you on the finished projects and any new additions on Monday!

Busy bees….

It’s been a little while since I posted last…sorry…

Things have been crazy around here.

I’m working a lot and the usual family stuff going on.

I bought the “fabric” for my chair and as we speak it’s outside in the garage with it’s first primer coat on…I have a feeling the chair is going to need 3-4 coats to look like what I want but that’s okay. Not a lot to paint.

Chair cover

This is the fabric I got for the chair. It’s not really fabric for sewing or anything, it’s actually two big slip covers that will be perfect for the chair! I just hope I can make it all work!

I kinda started on the tables too….nothing crazy enough to post though.

Well, I better scoot off to bed! TTYL!

Refinishing…then hopefully Resale!

So lately, I’ve wanted to buy cheap/free furniture from Craigslist or even unwanted items from family and friends, and give it a much needed facelift and then release it back into the world.

I was able to get started on this desire.
Scouring Craigslist, looking for the best deal and the best way to spend my allotted $100, I stumbled across this beauty of a chair.
$10!!! Are you serious?! Okay, well I’ve never reupholstered more than a dining room chair, but I was willing to try on this beauty. So we picked her up and hauled her home.
This is her current state, I got fed up with the bajillion staples in just the bottom and back half, so I took a break.
My projected vision for her?
Something following this from WhiteBerry 
Then, I located a 3 piece table set for $40, normally that would be a little higher than what I’d like to spend, but for 3 pieces, that’s like $13 a piece, so I let it slide -
Furniture 004
Furniture 005
Furniture 006
I can’t wait to liven them up some and resale them!
Oh! And I almost forgot to show you my freebie!
This huge, heavy mirror. It has a small gouge in it but nothing a little sanding and putting can’t fix! I’m going to hang her up in the living room!
AND….I know…on Saturday, we are picking up these two coffee tables! One is for my personal use and the other one will be resold hopefully! Best part, I don’t have to paint the personal use one, it’s perfect!
Look at those legs! Gorgeous!
Okay well, enough about my furniture loves right now! What are you working on?

TV Shows

We watch a lot of TV around our house.

Brooklyn loves Oswald, Olivia, Max and Ruby, and there’s many more.

Mark and I have our shows we watch together and then we have a few that we watch alone.

Fall shows we have coming on now:


Gossip Girl





We just watched the finales for:







And sadly…one of our series was cancelled….


So hopefully we’ll find some new shows and enjoy the ones we already watch!
