    Valentine’s Day Tree – Trendy or Completely Crazy?

    Am I skipping right past New Years? Yea, I totally am because who cares? Actually, I am doing something this year which is unusual but before we get to New Years, something needs to be done with my Christmas decor and I’m feeling lazy, I don’t want to take my bedroom tree down and I’ve decided to turn it into a Valentine’s Day tree. Does it seem like equal amount of work to decorate it again as it does to just take it down? Yes, yes it does but I’m still doing it and honestly, it’s only crazy if someone finds out – right?! Would it be totally nuts to…

    Blogmas Day 21: Office Holiday Decor

    I can’t lie, I am kinda’ ready to not be at work dealing with people for a couple of days. I feel like people get stressed out right about now with all of their last minute holiday preparations and start to get a bit frazzled. I get it but also, plan better – lack of planning on someone’s part does not mean that it becomes my emergency. Anyway, I finally snapped some photos of the decor that we put up at work this year for the holidays that will sadly be coming down next week. I purchased some new items for the office this year since we looked pretty tacky…

    Blogmas Day 16: Living Room Decor

    Do you ever find yourself scrolling through someone’s Instagram or reading their blog and wondering if they are a real person? It sounds nuts but I’ve always pondered on existence and whether or not we live in a simulation which is probably just an indication that I watch the Sci-Fi channel too much. But it makes me wonder sometimes, having never met these people that I follow and read about online, if they really exist. Is this an existential crisis – it feels like one. I realized today that I still had not blogged about the rest of my home decor or the stuff I put up at work either…

    Blogmas Day 1: Christmas Bedroom Decor

    Merry First Day of Blogmas! I hope that everyone is enjoying all of the festive-themed posts so far. For tonight’s post I am sharing a peek of the Christmas decor that I have put up in my bedroom. I love the pastel shades that were popular in the 1950’s as well as the funky shapes and textures, I borrowed most of my inspiration from this era for my theme. The gold and pink garland above my bed was a Michael’s find, the tree ornaments are a hodgepodge that I have been collecting over the years and the trio of pink trees are all from Hobby Lobby. The two in front…

    Best of November

    We are already at that time of year where I leave for work, it’s dark and then I leave from work and it’s dark so I don’t have a lot of time to get blog photos taken. I do have like 3 strands of lights leftover from tree decorating so we’ll try to make this happen but I don’t think they’ll be great quality. I don’t want to skip posting because I don’t have my own photos to use but I also don’t love using internet images or snips in posts too often. Anyway, here are some things that made my November a little better! Here’s the deal, I don’t…

    Vintage Inspired Christmas Decor

    I haven’t been on here the last two days because I’ve been busy and by busy, I’ve been sleeping. Actually, I had to do a big grocery shop on Thursday for Thanksgiving and it takes me an unacceptable amount of time to complete this task then get home and put it all away. I’m preparing a huge appetizer spread for any of my local friends who want to come over since I didn’t make plans to go home this year and I work all next weekend anyway. I’m making soft pretzels, toasted tortellini, baked cheese, caprese skewers, artichoke dip, spinach and cheese taquitos – just a bunch of junk food…

    Threshold Flannel Sheets: A Mood

    Before we get to the sheets, I have to vent – what else is new? When I was at Target purchasing said sheets, I overheard a lady tell her friend, Well it could be worse. I hate it when people say this to someone who is having a rough day or complaining about something that seems menial. When did life become a suffering competition? Yea, of course it could be worse but just let someone have their moment to vent, being compassionate is the least someone can do. Everyone’s perception of hardship is different, it’s not a competition. Anyway, I wanted some flannel sheets since there’s snow on the ground…

    Blogtober – Day X: Halloween Office Decor

    Can I rant? OK, good. It’s this weather, I swear, it’s just fucked my mood. I was watching YouTube, like ya’ do and I don’t know why I read the comments but I do and there was this comment that said wasn’t this YouTuber lucky that their complaint of the day was the oversized PR packaging when there are starving kids in Africa who don’t have clean drinking water. Are there starving kids in Africa? Yes, there are but what is this person sitting in front of their computer being a keyboard jockey doing about it? Nothing! Also, you don’t actually have to leave the US to find kids who…

    Best of September, Halloween Decor & 31 Nights of Horror!

    You guys, flu season just started, actually I don’t even know if it that’s true but I’ve already contracted strep and now I have the flu within the scope of a month. I’m so pissed, I tend to make it through flu season unscathed, this better not be a prelude for the rest of the year. I have missed two days of blogging due to feeling like death so am just throwing a bunch of stuff into this post that I had planned for the last couple of days of September. I only have a few items that I would consider Best Of’s for this month and very few empties…

    Halloween Decor Haul!

    I had today off for the sole purpose of finishing my shopping for Halloween decor. I wanted to be out early and home early because I can’t be bothered with people, so I am driving around at 6 AM and realized that the only stores open that early are grocery stores, Walmart and pharmacies. I haven’t been going into Walmart, I blogged about that a while ago because I just don’t love supporting them. I sucked it up and found some really cute things, I hope that my $34 goes to a good cause. Next stop was Target which didn’t have their Halloween stuff out even though their website said…
