florida. not the song. but just as pretty.

*there's just something about putting your feet in the ocean, despite how cold the water might be.

j - town.

j-town has really outdone itself recently. and i have totally loved it. here's some of what i'm talking about...enjoy :)

oh! and guess what?! two of my favorite people came into town! hurray for great in-laws!

our apartment

i thought i would give a little look into our little life. :)

my girly bathroom. i love everything about this bathroom from the pink towels to the flowered shower curtain.
part 2 of my girly bathroom. headbands, a darkroom timer, vintage prints and perfume.
our bedroom. evan and i agreed on the color green when we were registering and i am glad we picked a color we both can still enjoy.
side view b of our bedroom.
our latest addition in the master bedroom. prints hung from curtain rods.
our guest bathroom. this shower curtain was one of the best gifts we received from our wedding - we've had it for over 2 years and i think it still looks practically new.
my craft/fun room. where i keep my darkroom equipment, my sewing machine, and a lot of my treasures. someday this room will have more than posters from my college days as decoration.
craft room view b.
our dining room. our dining room table is seriously by far my favorite thing in our apartment. our dining room features those wonderful ugly sliding door blinds. but it also features antique plates and prints.
the hubby's study.
our linen/store everything closet.
kitchen view a.
kitchen view b. i used to spend practically no time in here other than at the microwave. but, recently i've been cooking a little more. let's hope this trend continues.
our living room features a red leather chair evan and i gave each other for christmas, a garage sale floral couch, a mini couch my friends janeane and courtney helped me re-upholster after we found it on the side of the road, an outdoor light, a mirror evan and i gave each other for valentines day 3 years ago, a vintage photo i bought at a thrift store of a very serious lady, and a few other treasures.

okay so there's our house. i am always wanting to paint it and while i can, im not sure it's worth it in a rental i know i won't be in forever. any thoughts on how to add color to my craft room (and others) without using paint?

spring is here.

and i think it calls for a few things to be in order.

**first things first, a new haircut. well maybe. i love this short style :)

**and secondly, spring calls for a wish list. here's a preview of mine. more to come.

fun, bright, and eccentric headbands. because nothing says spring like a giant flower in your hair.

shoes with bows. because everything is cuter with bows.

a long flowing spring dress that says "get me to a beach pronto!" :)
and lastly, polka dots. must i explain? these are crazy cute for any season. love this skirt!

again, more to come. what's on your wish list this spring? getting a new do? or found the perfect spring dress? do share!

a shout out to the best guy i know.

i'm married to the world's greatest guy who lets me sing at the top of my lungs and spoils me with his kindness. he laughs with me, listens to my crazy stories, eats my burnt cooking, takes me out to see my favorite movies, takes me on crazy roadtrips, surprises me, and takes me out on dates where we order a big chocolate chip cookie for dinner. :) i love him.
