It’s Been Pretty Quiet Around Here…

It’s Monday again. Back to school and schedules again. Really not wanting to go back, but there are just 6 weeks left and I know we will busy with different activities and time will go by quickly.

We haven’t been around much this past week either. Without a schedule and with spring break, everything got thrown off. We did get to take my little nieces to the zoo and it was so much fun to see it through little one’s eyes again. We enjoyed a beautiful day there and saw a baby rhino and a baby lion. Even a rhino is cute when it’s a baby! My mom and I held our annual yard sale and did pretty well. I’m just glad to get rid of all that stuff and make a little bit of money too! This next weekend, I am going with Haley to visit another college. We will see how it goes! Here are a few pictures from the zoo:

Lauren is Back with a Hobby Lobby Haul!

Hello eveyone!  And welcome to the new year!  I am so excited to see what 2017 has in store for me!

Speaking of stores…have any of you been to Hobby Lobby?

If you have, you can completely understand what I am talking about.  If you haven’t, then you might understand after this post.

Now, I just recently moved into a new place with someone I met on Craigslist.  Long story short, she is probably the best roommate ever because we are so alike.  We have so many similarities, it’s scary.  Oh well, Amber is awesome!

Except that she mentioned that she had never been to Hobby Lobby.  And I had to change that immediately.

So we made a pit stop at Dutch Bros Coffee (we are part of the Dutch Mafia lol) and continued to Hobby Lobby.

While shopping through the store, we bought some stuff for our back patio which is going to be a trailer park/camping/gypsy theme.  So we bought some awesome stuff to go on the patio.

First of all, how awesome is that flamingo wind chime????  I said that if we were doing the camping/trailer theme, we had to get a flamingo of some sort.  And this one is adorable so why not?  And the camper bird house?  ADORABLE!  We also bought some geckos to hang on the fence.  They were so cute we couldn’t pass it up.

And finally I bought this sign for my crafting area.

Perfect right?

Now I don’t normally plug my own stuff, but I want to tell you about my Etsy shop.  I started a shop called BlitzyBlingArt where I have stuff that looks like the British flag that I blinged out last fall.  If you want to check it out, that would be great!  I try to post stuff regularly to let people see what I sell!

Thanks for stopping by!

Window Shopping at Wayfair

Hi guys! Have you ever looked or shopped at the website Wayfair? I really hadn’t looked at it too much before, but once I did, oh my goodness! Do they have some beautiful stuff! With one of the world’s largest selections of furniture, home furnishings, décor, and goods, including more than seven million products from over 7,000 suppliers, Wayfair helps people find the perfect product for the right price. Their extensive selection and superior customer service coupled with the convenience of online shopping (and free shipping on any order over $49!), make it easier than ever to find exactly what you want for your home at a price you can afford. Here are a few things I found.

You can shop by style if you have a particular style in mind. There are choices like Coastal (my favorite!), Modern, Glam, Traditional, Global, Industrial, Rustic and Cottage. Of course there are all different categories too, like rugs, home accents, wall decor, mirrors and so much more!

Of course I chose Coastal to try first! How about some new sheets for the bed? Or a pretty lamp? A starfish pillow is a must!
