Love Is . . . *

In honor of today, I wanted to take a moment to quickly express some of the things that I love. I should probably start by stating that I don’t believe in “V-Day”. I think it’s absolutely absurd to dedicate a sufficient amount of love into just one day. Love is something that should be given daily, hourly. It’s what keeps us alive, patient, personal and imperfect as people. To love is to be honest. Honest is what I would like to be today, and every day. Honest and in love.

If anything, today is about being in love. Maybe it’s not a person, to many it doesn’t have to be! We glamorize this day as a reason to celebrate intimacy and affection, to share it with another person. Why? Why not just celebrate everything we love?  I feel if I’m going to celebrate this day, I will celebrate all aspects of love and today I’m lucky in love in plenty of ways. . . .

Spend today being thankful for what you have in your life, what you love. Because don’t “They” always say it’s the little things? Love today, everyday, and every little moment that matters, but most importantly; #Love Yourself. 

What Do You Love?

Cheers!

Back To Basics: Updating The Bedroom! *

So I should probably start off by apologizing. I know I said Wednesday that I would be posting this topic (Thursday) yesterday, and I didn’t. In fact, I attempted to make it one, straight week posting every day and I failed miserably! Oh, and on the one day of the week I work remotely no less. . . It should be the easiest of all the days, unless you of course wake up (as if you really slept to begin with) to a sick baby, a house full of chores and 5 Etsy orders to get out. It’s just been one of those weeks and basically, no time. Paige kept us up all night and I soon realized that she had a killer ear infection, thus requiring me to set a doctors appointment and cancel all pending errands (and said post). We made the best of it and she’s now feeling much better, but I wont lie when I say that I felt a little disappointed in myself for not finding the time. 

But really? Nobody cares if I post photos of my stupid bedroom updates one day later. Nobody is going to lose any sleep over this, especially me (Because it’s a post about a bedroom). On that note, lets roll because I finally fucking LOVE our bedroom and can’t wait to share the results!

Bedroom Update

So when I met my husband years ago, he had already purchased his house. A very responsible purchase for such a care-free 20 something, he was very much a dedicated home owner and it’s where we still live today. While I’m happily adjusted to his humble abode, I have made quite a few changes since my initial introduction of his territory. #AGirlsGottaDoWhatAGirlsGottaDo. While most men suffer from some sort of internal dysfunction as it relates to all things “pretty”, PJ and I actually agree on a lot of decorative compositions and we both seriously love a project! We have similar styles and it creates a very comfortable and collaborative connection when redesigning anything in our home. While he may not completely adore my impulsive “decorative” purchases, he does find joy in the final results. . . .whether or not he deems me crazy in the process.

While we are now married and the house is legally “ours”, I will always consider it to be HIS home- for lots of reasons: I didn’t help purchase it, didn’t get to house hunt (the best part), didn’t decide on location, didn’t select the paint palette and definitely did NOT orchestrate the landscaping.  While it’s an absolutely wonderful house and I truly enjoying calling this home, their will always be little things I try to transform in every attempt to call my own. From hanging art to complete revamps, I always have a project in mind and with no future moves in sight, it’s D.I.Y. from now until the day we decide on our next home together!

Za and Dad Painting

With that I bring you to our master bedroom. The last remaining “blue” room in the house, PJ had been clinging to his boyish walls since the day I moved in. Forever avoiding my “womanly touch” this little bastard would come up with reason after reason why we shouldn’t re-paint the bedroom. . . . or the office. When Paige was conceived and finally deemed a female, her and I together declared the office (soon to be nursery) blue be banished – And yes her vote counted before birth. The bedroom was another story. Finally, 4 years later I’ve successfully removed all blue walls from our home. #Chelsea:1Pj:0. I couldn’t be happier. . .  while on the other hand feeling slightly guilty. . . . Men were sad, pouting ensued, I even believe him and our dog Baxter talked trash about me and the baby ruining the Bachelor Pad for roughly 6 minutes and then finally, the paint went up and the boys shut up. . . . and it was a fucking fab deal! Paige even helped paint, all the while using her limited vocabulary to repeatedly say “Bye Blue”. . . I’m pretty sure it was her tiny way of rubbing salt in daddy’s already open wounds. Either that or she was simply stating facts. #ByeBlue #LoveHer.

So laugh all you want, but this was the only photo (above) I had taken BEFORE the room was finished. Not entirely paying attention, yet aware that I wanted to blog about our revamp, I kinda forgot to take the “Before” pictures. Trust me you aren’t missing out on anything, especially the blue walls. So unfortunately this isn’t a “Before & After”format like I had initially planned but rather a “Come See How Good My Room Looks – Ron Burgundy” format. As long as we are clear on that, may I present to you our new bedroom(!!!):

TaDa!! Ok so a little background: We painted the walls a neutral beige (not positive on the color- message me if you want it for sure, I can look), purchased the bed frame from Ikea last summer- The Malm Collection Bed Frame in Espresso and some random Ikea Shelves we turned into a giant unit that encased the bed.  It was a total D.I.Y., the board across the top is a floating shelf and the two towers on each end, well I have NO idea how we figured it would all work, but it did and we love it. Total it ran us under $400.00 for the furniture updates. The dresser at the foot of the room is just an old hand-me-down that was painted black before to match . . . it needs a fresh coat of paint. The round mirror above the bed was a $29.00 purchase from BigLots. I’m not sure if everyone has a BigLots around them. . . I’m seriously sorry if you don’t. I have loved that place since I was 16. We have one a mile away, needless to say, I get in trouble. #SorryNotSorry. The bed set, FREE. #ThankYouWeddingShower and the little mason jars, floral, lamps, wall art, random decor and metal letters ($1.00 each- probably my favorite purchase – stay off my side of the bed!) were all things I had either lying around or purchased from Michael’s (With Coupons Of Course) for a total of $37.00. Paint was probably somewhere around $45. Two gallons with primer included. . . we already had the rollers and all that from many prior projects. So all in all, this room was completely revamped – Just trust me on this one, it was damn ugly before- for just over $500. Super simple and nothing over the top.

I would still like to add some art on either side of the TV and maybe a window topper to match the bed set but for now, it’s pretty much complete. . . and all for a feasible amount of cash! I just love it. . . . not to mention, now that all the rooms are almost identical in color, resale value is at its highest!! #IfWeEverActuallyMove. Can’t wait to nap it up this weekend. New Sheets, New Me!

Have any of you recently remodeled a room? I would love to see how everything turned out!! I’m also in the process of updating my craft room- post to come later!! Happy Friday!

Cheers!

Comforting Confessions – It’s Wednesday Bitches! *

So it’s Wednesday and since I had no clue what I wanted to post about today, besides maybe my new Blog Layout (AKA Confession # 1: I actually just accidentally deleted my Theme on WordPress last Friday and have NO damn clue how to put it back together. . . .so new Layout it is!), I figured I should finally jump on board the “Humpday Confessionals” band wagon with Kathy over at Vodka & Soda!  I meant to take part last week but work got in the way #TheNerve. 

Humpday Confessions

With that being said. . . . lets re#hash my week and all those embarrassing moments it may or may not have included.

Confession #2: On Sunday . . . I went to Michael’s Craft Store, then to Joann Fabrics and then back to Michael’s Craft Store (again) all in a 1.5 hour span over saving merely $1.10 on a paint marker. #FuckingCoupons. This isn’t the first time it’s happened and if Hobby Lobby had been open (and had a 40% off coupon as well), I probably would have stopped there too. I have an obsession with craft store coupons. I plot out my every adventure when attempting these endeavors making sure to always stop, shop and re-stop where the coupons will offer the biggest benefit. I am NOT however a “Crazy Coupon Lady” better known as someone probably aspiring to also be a “Crazy Cat Lady” but just lacks enough cats to fill the quota. I do however enjoy saving 40% off on over-priced art materials that I typically need for Etsy orders and when these stores mark everything down as it is, it’s a complicated mission to say the least. I would like to be clear when I say that I don’t clip coupons from the grocery store. I will not buy 4 tubes of toothpaste just to save myself $.40. That’s what Costco is for. #Noobs.

I also wish my Husband’s Grandparents would FUCKING STOP politely abandon clipping coupon from Krogers, Meijers, CVS, Walgreens, RiteAid, and every other local food chain in the area for me. (They clip each one out individually, deliver them to our house weekly – Literally EVERY Coupon). I will NEVER use them. . . I feel bad throwing their hard work away. #ButIDoItAnyways. I will however confess to enjoying some Kohl’s Cash here and there and often dabble in “edible mailers” (McDonalds Coupons, Pizza Coupons, Biggby Coffee Coupons delivered to my doorstep- I made up the term “Edible Mailers”. #FeelFreeToUseIt). OH and lets not forget the Bed Bath and Beyond Coupons- The Only Coupon Worth Collecting. I will turn a car around bitches!

While my husband found 15,678 reasons to text me “Where Are You” while I was on this crafting crusade, I didn’t feel the internal desire to text him back a fake excuse, nor did I feel he deserved my actual excuse as it could be deemed [crazy] by any normal man.

  • Did I feel bad I was gone for 2 hours? Nope.
  • Did I waste more than $1.10 in gas obtaining this sale price? Absolutely. Maybe?
  • Did I add additional (and unnecessary) miles on to my soon to be over, leased Jeep? Shit Yes.

Fucks Given: 0.

Confession #3: I may or may not have totally over-quoted an Etsy inquiry in opposition to another shop’s listing in hopes to avoid the customer’s excessive order in question. . . . only to wake up and realize the customer thought my quote was a “steal” and processed the order anyhow. #FML Now I have to make 400 individually personalized (and stamped) vintage luggage tags for some crazy amount of honey jars at some bitches wedding. I seriously did NOT want to take on this order right now. #Lazy. I thought by over-bidding another shop by $40( who also has the exact tags she’s looking for) that she may realize this and tell me to “F Off” – Clearly she’s not a bargain shopper like myself and in turn, I got the order anyhow. This lady is also a self proclaimed “wedding planner” – Aren’t they supposed to price shop for you?? Great Odin’s Raven am I happy I didn’t hire someone to over-spend for me while simultaneously charging me to do so. #IdiotBrides While I’m never one to turn down an order (I seriously LOVE My Etsy Shop) I do, however, have a thing against certain items I list in my own shop as they are more difficult to make then others. . . . I would take them down but they seem to be the items that everybody wants. #OfCourse.

Confession #4: It’s been 8 days and I still can’t figure out how in the hell to add “Pin It” buttons to my photos on my blog. This is the hardest confession to give as I work in Social Media and should be able to figure this shit out. . . .  I can only find like 100 blogs that post “How To’s”. Anyhow, can someone out there PLEASE help me?! #Thanks.

So there is that. Glad to get all of that off my chest (got enough on here already #HumbleBrag #DontCare) . . . now on with the rest of the week! – What are some of your confessions? Make sure you stop on over at Vodka&Soda to Link Up with Kathy and share some of your own!

Oh and make sure you stop by to check out my “bedroom makeover” tomorrow, while I confess (#5) I didn’t really remember to take pictures BEFORE we started remodeling, it’s still something I’m rather proud of, so results are all you’ll be getting! Happy Hump Day!

Cheers!

Sh*t Men Say {Link Up #2} *

So it’s the Second Tuesday of the month and I can’t lie when I say that I’ve been anxiously awaiting this link up all week. Amanda over at Voyage Of The MeeMee & Danae over at Duh! Danae! have kicked off their 2nd ever “Sh*t Men Say” Link Up! It’s a fun filled Tuesday to say the least and it’s the most entertaining of ways to make fun of your man. . . or some man . . . any man really.

With out further ado I present you some of the most manly stupid things my husband has mentioned in his #Twitterverse since last month . . . .

Screen Shot 2014-02-11 at 11.14.12 AM

Pj’s dream (along with 1/2 of his friends) is to one day be an Olympian. A Olympic Curler rather, but anyway you hash it, an Olympic Athlete. While I outwardly laugh (very loudly) at him and his friends for this ambitious and unrealistic goal, I  do however pride myself in having a man with such passion and perseverance. While none of them have yet to actually pick up a curling stick, it’s not entirely impossible they obtain this goal in the next 2 decades as some of the U.S. Curlers only started the sport in 2009. #5YearOlympicPlan #WhatTheHell?

Screen Shot 2014-02-11 at 11.12.43 AM

This is the point in which men (from all walks of life) outwardly express their frustration with Olympic classification. It’s okay hunny, I don’t know what the difference is either.

Screen Shot 2014-02-11 at 11.12.15 AM

I think (and hope) this was in reference to cooking his 5lb tube of over processed burger meat for his annual “Super Bowl Sloppy Joes”.  If only I had set up live wire during the annual 9 hours of “Man Time” AKA our Super Bowl Party, I could honestly write an entire blog on Sh*t Men Say daily. . . . for the next 3 Years. #YChromosomes.

Screen Shot 2014-02-11 at 11.09.43 AM

I’m sure this was in reference to when PJ and his father attended the Red Wings game back in January. . . . while men try to sympathize with the other “poor saps” during such horrific events, it’s apparently forgotten that they too have their moments. It is however unfortunate that this female was found to be not “hot” . . . indeed Poor Sap. #PoorPoorSap

So there you have it- A few of my favorite monthly updates on the Man in my life and the Shit that he Says! If you’re looking for a fun little Tuesday tradition to get in on, I highly suggest popping over to these ladies Link Ups and partaking on the fun! It’s always fun to poke a little fun!

So stop what you’re doing (or not doing) and link your shit up, it’s bound to make your afternoon a little lighter with a lot of laughter! #TrustMe. If not, good luck to you on all your mid-week endeavors (I hope you fall off a cliff). #YepIJustSaidThat.  Happy Tuesday!

Cheers!

Free Valentine Prints! *

So typically I’m not a huge fan of “V-day”. To be honest, all I’ve ever hoped for was an excuse to get my hands on some chocolate covered strawberries. . . . like seriously. As if I couldn’t eat them any other day of the year, V-day is an excuse to eat not only 3 or 4, but a dozen. All at once. #NoShame. Hell I don’t even care for the fancy ones, I’ll make them myself. Just buy me some Dolci Frutta and I’ll dip those babies myself. . . . damn, then I can eat a whole pint of berries! You think I’m lying? Ask my husband (or anyone that lived with me in college), shit’s not even normal.

Anyhow, in honor of the people that DO care about such a worthless Hallmark Holiday, I’ve decided to provide you all with some free prints for the special occasion. A “V-day” gift from me to you- I typically sell prints on my Etsy Page but in honor of such a stupid romantic holiday, I decided to “share the love” so feel free to print these little monsters out and decorate the shit out of your homes. #ThankMeLater.

FREE V-day Prints

All of these prints are placed on a chalkboard backdrop for that rustic, charming feel I know you’re all going for. . . Or at least I was, when I made them. If you hate them, I’m sorry. Unfortunately you’ll have to wait until “V-Day” 2015 for my next installment of love. But seriously, LIKE THEM!

Friday Favorites: We MUST Talk About Baby Humans *

So it’s Friday. Last night my father messaged me on Facebook (Yes, he’s that tech savvy apparently), and he informed me that upon stalking my name on google (He must do this often because as tech savvy as he is, he’s also paranoid from time to time- which aren’t all people over the age of 40 working around the internet?) he came across my blog. #Busted. I totally haven’t started sharing this nonsense with my friends and family yet because, well, I’m lost. I don’t know what the hell I’m even doing on here but so far I’m satisfied. And that’s all that matters. ME. I also haven’t begun sharing because it’s something I want to be not a fucking shit show “well established” once I let my outside world in. I need a flow, or a theme or something people actually care about? I don’t even know. I’m just rambling. 

I then started to think about what weekly routines I want to start on my blog. Something that can perhaps gauge interest or become a fun tradition for people to get involved in? I guess that my first idea was Friday Favorites. Everyone loves Fridays, it’s just common knowledge. Why not make them even better by spending my morning talking about some of my favorite things? (No Matter HOW Random They May Be). I mean who doesn’t want to make a great day greater? And even if your Friday may be going to hell, you can get online and read, share and laugh in the randomness that makes my world spin. It’s all I could think of so far, besides that I should probably make a point to do my “Creative Chaos” posts on Thursdays because that’s when I typically attempt something random around my house. I then realized at this point that I would be holding myself more accountable to this blog. #Shit. While I have limited followers and absolutely no idea how to gauge an interest in my boring little life, I think this is the correct direction to be heading in. Plus I’m all about organization so I mine as well get this blog in order since my life is anything but. 

Baby Humans 1

With that being said, I would like to spend this first ♥Friday Favorites♥ talking about Baby Humans. Baby Humans are defined by me as: a small baby or toddler that is dressed like an adult, teen or someone in their 90s. Over all they are mature in image and underdeveloped in reality. Probably the cutest things to grace the planet. While they may rock that Burberry scarf and Lacoste sweater, they are secretly unrolling your toilet paper around the corner. It couldn’t be more practical. They make my life. While I pin these little creatures left and right, I’ve taken a few moments to share my absolute favorite photos of these adorable little minis and conclude with some Baby Gap outfits (My Personal Downfall- Baby Clothes Shopping) that will thus result in me continuing to dress my own mini as a Baby Human. I can’t wait! Lets get this started.

* I’m slightly more partial to the Baby Human women as I have a girl of my own but I’ve managed to find some absolutely fabulous mini men as well. . . Please Enjoy. Also note, these photos are NOT mine and a source link is provided upon clicking each photo. I would also like to personally thank the Photographers, Bloggers, and Etsy Owners that took the time to dress these Little Humans and photograph them for my viewing pleasure. I ♥!

Baby Humans Take One: 

Baby Human 18

Unreal Cuteness. The Hat- Coat- Scarf – Leggings & TEDDY. 

Baby Human 17

The Fringe Boots & Sweater. OMG. 

Baby Human 16

Baby Converse Are My Heart. Paige received them from a good friend, Tiffany when she was one. I died. 

Baby Human 15

Paige is obsessed with cat shirts, so is mom. I find them hilarious – I’m not even a cat person. This rocker chick look with the sling bag, adorbs! 

Baby Human - 19

The striped tank and headband with those cat-eye glasses. I adore the retro look on all ages.

Baby Human 12

Ok the cable sweater and headband, I want to be in her clique. No joke.

HATS. Vintage Suit. I want to read this baby a book. 

Baby Human 26

Riding boots on anything under 3 feet is just the cutest thing a person can witness. . . . enough said.

Baby Humans 3

Baby Cali. Love these shades. 

Baby Humans 5

That tunic sweater is a must have for ALL ages. So sweet. 

Baby Human 25

Ok, this little mini needs her own magazine cover. I seriously want to give her a camera and a Laberdoodle and she’s set for life. #BeachBum

Baby Human 21

Peeptoe flats. What the hell. She’s too cute for words. #NeonPrincess And again with the purses. WHY so cute?!

Baby Humans 7

This Dress – I need the pattern. It’s to die. Baby Maxi – Who knew~?

Before I forget – My Own Baby Human! ♥

Ok So There Is That. My ♥Friday Favorites♥ of Baby Humans. I would like to sincerely thank the photographers again and advise all the people who purchased this baby attire to please forward me all links as to where I can purchase. I actually want for myself as well but I’ll settle for dressing vicariously through my daughter. . . which has presented a large issue during my “Retail Therapy” sessions. #OoOops. 

Lastly, I will give you a small dose of my future purchasing conquest. . . as I seldom open emails from GAP (because I know I will cave under their Baby Human cuteness pressure – Oh and the 40% coupons), I have accidentally stumbled across their new spring Baby Human line. . . . it’s all must have. #NoLie. I’ve collected some of my personal faves. . . I hope Paige agrees. 

Baby Gap Ensemble

So with that I will conclude my first ♥Friday Favorites♥! I am not gonna lie, this post made my morning already. It’s kinda nice to switch it up from the constant “Things That Drive Me Crazy” posts or the “Guilty As Charged” sessions. . . Just post what makes you happy- some of your favorites!! Love me some Baby Humans and now I can’t wait for 5-0’clock!

Do any of you have children? What are some of your favorite places to shop? I Love New Ideas!!! 

Also, Feel free to comment a few of your favorite things! – Get in on the action, I love the positivity (& Humor) this instills in my Friday! 

Cheers!

“In Golf, As In Life. . . . . *

. . .It Is The Follow Through That Makes The Difference.” – Author Unknown.

Love Golf Ball

Today is Sneak Peak day into my OBSESSION with the game of golf. What sparks this post you say? Oh I dunno. . . . how about the BEST birthday present a Wifey could ask for!! That’s right ladies. . . my husband knows me very well. While it’s currently snowing mind you- no seriously look at a radar for Detroit, I am still very much excited for the season to begin. With golf shows just around the corner and my office ramping up for the 2014 season, it’s no surprise that I’m already anticipating that first sweet, summer round! With all this being said. . . I present you the happiest birthday present I could have asked for- “The Pink Princess”.

Cobra Amp Cell Driver

Cobra Amp Cell Face

Cobra Amp Cell Head

Cobra Grips

Pink Princess – AKA The Cobra Amp Cell Driver with MyFly Technology. Adjustable trajectory and distance, this beautiful little monster can adjust your drive loft anywhere from 11.5-14.5 degrees with additional draw capabilities.  This driver also features SmartPad technology which delivers a square face at address regardless of loft setting and E9 technologies frees up additional weight for a 12% larger effective face, delivering faster ball speeds on mis-hits. Basically in English this thing is as powerful as it is SEXY. 

While I’m a little nervous to transition back to a Ladies Driver, I can’t help but be ecstatic over this colorful bundle of joy. While senior shafts (Golf Lingo Ladies – Lets Not Go Down That Road #GetYourHeadOutOfTheGutter) are typically my go to for the past 9 years, I have become especially fond of the colorful selections that PUMA Golf has put together in the last few seasons -Thanks Ricki Fowler, Your Colorful Attire Makes My Life. Of course colorful clubs shall never undermine your selection process, it’s only fair that I dabble in the market! I’ve hit the same TaylorMade R5 Driver since 2004 – That’s Right, When the Pistons won the Championship (That’s How I Paid For The Bad Boy) and it’s literally about time (more like 3 seasons ago) that I got a new driver. While my putter and irons are only a few season old, I’ve had a rather difficult time deciding on what to do about my #1. . . always teetering back and forth between Ladies and Men’s. Both have their upsides and downsides. Knowing I was bound to have a case of insta-gret immediately following the purchase, it was never made.

Ricki Fowler

Thank goodness PJ decided for me and got me something I truly adore. . . . sometimes the best gifts are the things you would never buy yourself! I am both confident and excited to get to the range and master the “Pink Princess”. It’s been a long while since I smashed a Chicky-Poo Wood but I can’t wait to get back at it. I literally have stared at this thing +5 minutes every day since it’s been gifted to me and my doubts of flex and loft have quickly been pushed aside by Pink-on-Pink-on-Pink. I even purchased some girly pink balls to match. . . . who knew?! (Typically you will NEVER see me buy girly balls, I find them annoying and feel that typically only the worst women golfers make such a purchase. . . . but this is a special occasion.) PLUS I’ll be confidently out-driving all the boys. . . . with a pink ball. #GeeImRealSorry #HowEmbarassingForYou. #SorryNotSorry.

Pink Callaway Balls

Are any of you golfers? Would you like to learn?

I would love to help give pointers and hope to someday have a Ladies Golf Blog for all those interested in learning the game, learning the lingo. . . . .or hell, just learning golf cart “drinking etiquette”- Something any and all women should learn. A total game changer! #PlusThatShitIsFun!

For the Love of Golf

Thanks again husband, it was a wonderful Birthday as always and I can’t wait for the snow to melt! 

Cheers!
