All Over the Place

So my intention for the month of March was to blog daily. #FAIL. Life happens and it happened to me as well. Anyway, as I was surfing the net today while I was waiting for hubby to finish some work, I found a tutorial for this wreath over at simply me. It is simply gorgeous and I could find a million ways to alter this to fit my needs.

Lately my life has been a series of ups and downs that have provided me with some answers to the burning questions in my head. I have decided to follow my heart and pursue some dreams. Oh! I earned a 90% on my midterm. (I am in a master’s program that is geared toward Youth Counseling and Restorative Practices.) I was pretty proud of myself. Then as I was watching a show about real estate, I had gotten pretty excited about the prospect of me enrolling in a real estate course for the summer.

Thinking about this summer led me to think about sewing summer dresses and skirts. Then I remembered that I am 30 lbs. overweight. However, I started going to the gym regularly and have worked out 6 days this week. That is a big accomplishment for me. I (just this past weekend) bought a shirt to remind me that summer is coming and that I need to get ready. Yellow is my color for Spring/Summer 2012. I am also thinking about getting rid of my many pairs of jeans to purchase some more modern washes (in my desired size).

On another note, I started taking pics using instagram and one of them I am super proud of. Here it is…

I am sad that I did not take pics of a pillow that I saw today that I really would have liked to use as inspiration for my bedroom decor. I always forget to take pics and the right moments AND I never quite know what to take pics of. *sigh*


#30 Lists : Day 1


I finished my title page last night as I am still deciding on a cover. Anyway I am pleased so far. i will build and add things as I see fit. After all, it is my journal.


Day 1 is done and I am anticipating more. this list thing is super easy and requires hardly any time or effort. (translation: there aren’t many things to be indecisive about). Well, I have so many other things to do at this moment so I hope that you enjoy. Did you notice that I am challenging myself to blog everyday for the month of March?

Oh earlier today I had the pleasure of joining a watercolor painting class. It was very inspirational. So hopefully, I can clean/organize my art area tonight (instead of going to the gym or movies). Today feels like one of those stay in with a warm mug of tea & a book.
