mad heat and mad men

Dear summer heat

You are ruining my life. I don't have any desire to do anything. It is so hot that every breath feels like my last. It feels like even typing right now is exhausting and over heating me. Can you please go back to being sunny and cool? It would really help me a lot... I'm sure a few other people feel the same way. Please please please.

maybe I don't love summer anymore

Now that I got that out of the way I just found one of the most fun little sites via this cute blog...
I made husband and I...cute right?

Also my new obsession is .This site is loaded with tons of fun ideas like this one blocks made into picture magnets. I can't wait to try to make them.

Well I'm off to desperately try to stay cool.

Before and after

After a tough few week of feeling exhausted and over worked I finally took a little time to do something I love and give my little kitchen a face lift.



I used a high quality craft paper from The Paper Source as a faux wallpaper and painted the hinges to match my kitchen accesories. I bought a few succulents ( fool proof plants) to put on the shelf and there you have it. A cheap little way to make my kitchen a bit more fun. .... Only problem now I want to redecorate EVERTHING.:)

Wow.. Is it a year already????

I can't believe that it has already been one year since husband and I moved to Portland. This time last year we were crammed in our little car with all of our belonging smashed in the back of our car. I wish I had a better picture so you could get the full affect of how we drove, but none the less it was such a fun road trip. With way too many stops for snacks and energy drinks and perhaps MIA on repeat a few too many times. It was so exciting driving to a place I had never even been before and crossing our fingers that the apartment we rented via email and pictures was actually as cute as it seemed and in a good neighborhood. We were pleasantly surprised, :)

Although I miss my family like crazy it has been an amazing experience. In a way it really was fitting to move away right near 4th of July. It really marked the Independence of husband and I and starting our own family.

I'm not sure what our plans are for tomorrow besides husband having to work :( At least he get off early. I would be fine not doing much... All my little heart desires are a few sparklers :)
Have fun!!! Happy 4th of July!!!!
