Operation Clean House!!

I am sick and tired of my house being so cluttered and messy.  I need to get organized once and for all!  Does anyone else have this problem?  I am trying to get my mind clear enough to be productive, but all that I want to do in my spare time is clean up a mess that has been building my entire life.  I have decided to write what I know, and messes, messes I know.  So the next thirty days will be devoted to tips, strategies and stories about the struggles to get this ole house ship-shape!  Maybe it'll set the rest into motion!

I am so excited! I am finally fulfilling my dream!

Today I went on my first consultation for vintage consignments!  The woman I met with has some really wonderful pieces that she would like to sell from furniture to fashion.  I took some of the clothing home with me to get ready for photo shoot styling.  I can't wait to get the new items up in my etsy store and out there for everyone to see.  I will keep you all posted, along with some tutorials about what to look for when shopping for vintage items.  Thank you all for reading!  See you again soon.

The take away show, Lablogotheque

One of my most intense, self-indulgent pleasures is watching the take away show until the wee hours of the morning (When I should be sleeping at least enough to be ready for my early rising infant.).  It is just the most wonderful thing to ever happen to music...Ever!  The inspiration is immense, it makes me want to go out, get a crazy hipster outfit, and play cute little ditties.  I think that all of you should watch some, but be warned, you WILL get hooked!  This one is my favorite, The Gardener by The Tallest Man On Earth.  I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do...eek I am excited to watch it again.

This website is awesome...Free clothes and Ipads and stuff...And it's not a gimmik (exactly)

I stumbled upon it while I was looking at blogs!  Here is the link...Sign up and get 10 bucks, get more friends and get 5 bucks a friend, it's that easy!!!
No More Rack is the site

Just so you all know...

Pinterest is no longer on my shit list, as they finally sent me an invite.  I apologize for calling them elitist assholes...Kinda.

How do I make a button for my blog?

I have been attempting to teach myself all there is to know about blogging, but some things are so confusing.  I decided to google it... these are my findings

  1. Everybody on the face of the earth but me has already figured this out
  2. I can read the instructions over and over and still not understand them
  3. I thought the Gimp meant something entirely different
  4. is REALLY fun and easy!
  5. Patience is a virtue
And 1:31 AM....I did it!  Check it out, my first button!  Yay!
I hope that you like it...I got the little design from free pretty things for you...a splendid blog (maybe she will put up this here button!)

pinterest elitist assholes!

So I see people's really cool blogs and I think "Pinterest, what's that?  I like that website!" and then I see that you can only get an account and post the things your are (P)interested in if you are invited.  They send you an email about being on a "Waiting list" after you request admission.  As if there is a capacity sign hanging over the door to the freaking internet!!  Right.  I just want one...Can you tell?

Looking for sponsors!

I have not been a blogger for very long, but I am trying to generate a little bit of excitement!  I will be giving away a free one month sponsorship to the first ten people who might be interested.  Just send me a comment with your email address and we can get in contact!

The little blog that could

Who says that a blog must conform into some sort of mold to be successful?  I get on this little old blog and write whatever comes to my mind.  Sometimes it is meaningful and long, other times, short and to the point.  I love having that power over this space.  There are no rules here.  One day I could write about weddings, the next day, breakups.  I really am glad to know that we live in a time when we are technologically able to put our emotions out there for people everywhere to see.  Perhaps it will shape the way humanity develops.  Maybe we will develop more connections with people and stop fighting with one another.  I pray that many of you will stop here at this little blog and help her become strong and mighty.  Thank you to my are the core of my motivations.

How to avoid being a bridezilla!! (What to do when your wedding isn't going exactly as planned)

My friend is getting married in two days. As an assertive and opinionated woman (why we love her) we expected her to have a mild case of briditis. As it turns out, she is the reason for writing this post. I have been amazed with her cool demeanor and humble gratitude towards all of us. And it can't be easy. She has been experiencing a little more than a few snafus. Her venue isn't properly hydrated, along with her flowers. Her dress was altered and still a bit too big, along with the men's tuxes. A little thing here, another there...It is enough to make my head spin and I am just one of the bridesmaids! But she has been quite the opposite of the bridezilla we might have assumed anyone to be after such events, going out of her way to make us comfortable while we all scramble to the finish line. It really shows me how much she is ready to spend the rest of her life being a wife to someone she is deeply in love with. I have watched this person change in such a short time that it blows my mind. I love her even more today than when I first knew she was my friend. I see many people in my life becoming more and more wonderful every day. I see the power of love overcoming failures, shortcomings, and issues big or small. Love is my God, my God is Love. And I am happy to witness this exchanging of God through vows, bows, pom-poms, feathers, fancy dresses and good times...I hope that my newly different, old love becomes like theirs...and I hope someday we will be able to share days like this together...but that's a different story ;)

According to audience stats...

Georgia is a country. Just thought you ought to know that. Another fun fact is that my grandmother used to call children "Hooligans". I would love to bring that back. Hail to the hooligans, hehe, haha.

I smell a hitchin'

My best friend is getting married. I am frantic. What now?
