Rain and lightning!

It's raining and gross outside so I'm blog-hopping tonight on my night off of work. I have been thinking about re-upholstering some Goodwill chairs to use in the apartment I'll be living in this fall. The video below from ReadyMade just sealed the deal and now I've got plans to hit up some Goodwill's in the area!

My "Ikea Name"

I love Ikea almost as much as I love Anthropologie...I NEED to go to the store in Cincinnati as soon as tax season is over! Speaking of tax season, I must apologize for my lack of posting recently. It's harcore tax season right now. We've got two weeks until everything must be finished and it's getting a little crazy at the office! I said, I am obsessed with Ikea and I came across this Ikea Name Generator. You enter your name and out pops a fake Sweedish sounding furniture name. I love it! The one above is the one I made. I'm crossing my fingers that I can convince someone to go with me before I head to school for the summer!

carrying on

aaah, time is flying by so fast! it doesn't even feel like the week is over...sadly, my 6-day work weeks start tomorrow and don't end until your taxes are due. it's only a month so I think I can handle it.

I have been teetering on whether to buy this print for what seems like forever. but I love it and all the different colors it comes in!

this print is from cutpastprint over at etsy

room service

I need a desk for my apartment next year and I don't want to buy a cheap piece of junk last minute So...I've been hunting around for some inspiration so I can make my own. I was looking through Metropolitan Home Magazine and I came across an ad for Room Service. It is a brick-and-mortar store with a really cool website. I love the furniture they showed in the magazine so I checked out their office furniture area. I found the cool desks above and I am going to go Goodwill-hunting this summer and see if I can make something similar!

I am obsessed with Trader Joe's Organic Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup. It sounds like it could be weird, but it is amazing. It's also pretty cheap compared to some other boxed soups I've seen at the grocery store. I went to stock up this weekend because it looked like they were running low...haha Life will be rough when I'm back at school and there isn't a Trader Joe's near by!
p.s. I know the picture quality is horrible, but I wanted to try out my Blackberry's camera feature and there weren't many good pictures of the soup online :)

In the winter my hair gets so flat and static-y. I saw the commercial for Tresemme's 24 Hour Body products and I'm kind of really excited to try them tomorrow morning when I'm getting ready for work! I meant to get the mouse and accidentally got the hairspray so I had to go back to Target today and get the mouse too. (I took the littlest sister with me and she was distracting me because she had to go to the bathroom "REALLY REALLY BAD" haha)
