Ahhhh, I finally got my pink Blackberry Curve! My other phone's battery died EVERY time someone called. They all were used to hearing, "Hey, say it fast, my phone's gonna die..." haha but anyways, I came straight home from work, skipped the gym, and opened my phone. 4 hours later and I'm still playing with it. Now I can check my email and look at blogs during my lunch break at work instead of driving all the way home for lunch. My dad is also getting a Blackberry from his work. If you knew him and how horrible he is at technology, you would laugh. It took me a while to figure out how to dial. He's gonna freak when he can't just press the number button...hahaha ohh well. Time for bed. Tax season is in full force.

Sunday, I HAD to visit the Anthropologie store. It had been too long, and they had so many new, pretty things. I put all my favorite things into the picture above. My little sister went with me and she was in heaven. She loved looking at everything! I walked around the store with 3 plates, a coffee mug, and a purse I wanted to buy, then slowly put it all back. I NEED to save up for the big Ikea trip this summer! It was so hard to put everything back, but after a few more hours of overtime at work, I may have to head back there!

Apartment Therapy has 10 great DIY tricks they've collected while doing their famous housetours. I've been looking for some pillow inspiration and this definitely caught my eye!

aaah, finally!

it's the weekend and that makes me SO happy. i'm planning on making some things to stock my shop with and working out. that's pretty much it.

so, I was bored, and just finished watching Disney movies with my sisters...I was blog surfing and came across
{My MiNuTia}. She has a tutorial for editing photos with Photoshop Elements 5 which I happen to have! I tried it out on one of my fourth of july pictures. I think it worked out pretty well. we definitely look a lot tanner!

p.s. LOVE the i.u. coordination going on for 4th of july :)

forgot my coffee

I had a dentist appointment today and definitely forgot my coffee. It's never a good day when that happens...On the topic of coffee, I just have to say that I think it's pretty cool that my dad roasts his own coffee. I've gotten so used to it that I can actually tell a difference when he runs out and we have to have "boring store bought coffee." He gives it away for Christmas but wants to sell it SO bad!

dear bloomington, I miss you

This semester I am living at home while I do my tax internship, sharing a room with my 6-year old sister, and looking forward to my senior year of college like you can't even understand.
