DIY Marquee Letters

June 2, 2014

Nothing adds a bit of pizzazz like some flashy marquee letters. Unfortunately, while Etsy offers oodles of them, they are largely out of my price range, and by my price range, I mean the amount Andy will confidently agree that I should spend on light up letters for a 4 day event. Commence project DIY. I […]

Snowed In With Nothing But Coconut Love

January 29, 2014

We’ve basically been stuck in our house since January 1st, and aside from the uncontrollable sobbing and eye twitching, it’s been amazing. I’m like Sissy Spacek in Blast From The Past. There’s been constant rainbow looming, online shopping, minor home renovations, and it’s also cleared the way for  a couple “me” projects. Bought a new […]

What I Wore: DIY Vintage V-Neck Hoodie

January 23, 2014

I don’t know about you, but I hate to have things all up on my neck. On top of that, I have a large chest, so high necklines- on top of choking me- are really unflattering. Plus I like my sweatshirts with cleavage. I’ll own that. So, I have come up with a solution to […]

Entry Dresser Rehab

November 15, 2013

So, one of the final pieces from my epic hernia thrift furniture haul was a beat up old dresser I found for $30. I picked it up to potentially go in our laundry room as a catch-all for storage, but I fell in love with it’s original hardware, and decided it was far to pretty […]

Painting Without Pants: The Living Room & Bedroom Reveal

October 29, 2013

Remember the television console that almost killed me? Thanks to copious amounts of help from Andy and my mom, I was able to finish it, but out of principal, I gave it the silent treatment the whole entire time. It actually wasn’t the only thing I purchased that day. I also left with a headboard […]

September 20, 2013

Um, so about last Halloween? Check out my dope pumpkin skills. Check out the shit I made for my kid. Check out our bad ass couples costume. Check out my home decor.  WHAT THE FUCK WAS WRONG WITH ME LAST YEAR? I am this motivated about non-food… never. So now that I went ahead and […]

Mermaid Hair

May 14, 2013

Curvy girls have great hair. At least I do. I mean, for so long, it was my only redeeming quality. Well, at least she has great hair…. It’s the “but she’s got such a pretty face” of comments. Whatever, cute hair totally made women’s denim colored stretch slacks acceptable in junior high. I have gotten […]

The Ukulele

I am basically one blunt bang cut from Zoey Deschanel or a really ironic fedora away from being Jason Mraz.

Lazy Sunday: October 21st

October 21, 2012

If you were to ask me, which was harder, applying fake lashes or childbirth without an epidural, I would say tie. No wait, the lashes, because the baby was gonna fall out, regardless, getting these suckers on straight was touch and go.
