So sad.

I bought this super pretty skirt, but it is just too small for me.  No fun.  I love it and really really wish I could have it fit.  Such a fun pattern and awesome color.  I love it.

Love Seat

If I was living in a cute little house with a sun room or screened in porch I would totally be buying this little love seat.

Hopefully my husband is reading this, although I doubt it!  But if he is (hi honey!) please buy me this:

Adjustable Floor Lamp

I really like this lamp.  Just adds something a bit different than a "normal" lamp.

I think I would really like to add it to my living room.

Such a fun coat

I would love to buy this jacket.  I sent it to my Mom awhile back, she told me to save my money . . . you think that means she doesn't like it?

I got the new Crate and Barrel Catalog yesterday and I fell in love with a new lamp.
Mack with Orange Cord Table Lamp
It is such a basic design.  Really the only unique thing is that the cord is a different color.  But I still like it.

Beer Candy?

These sound delicious!  I think I need to get some.  Or maybe try to make some with my husbands beer . . . interesting thought.

27 in 2011

There seem to be a lot of bloggers out there that are working on their 30 before 30 (and here or 32) or other such lists of goals, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon.  My version is 27 in 2011.  I turn 27 this year, so 27 seemed like a good number of goals, but my birthday is in June, and 6 months doesn't give me a lot of time to accomplish everything, so I am giving myself till the end of the year.  I am even such a dork that I have already created an excel file to track my progress!  (if you are lucky I might even show you what it looks like!)

So here goes . . .

  1. top secret
  2. take banjo lessons (or start again)
  3. rock climb at least once a month
  4. run with Char at least once a week
  5. try at least 2 new recipes a week
  6. floss daily
  7. get pictures organized (finish printing 2009, wedding photos, create photo books, etc.)
  8. read 6 books
  9. lose XX lbs. (and keep 'em off!) - I don't think anyone needs to know this number!
  10. clean out my closet & back closet
  11. learn to crochet and make cowl
  12. learn to make pasta
  13. learn to knit and make stirrup socks
  14. paint some furniture (the china cabinet, and redo the red table)
  15. re-learn to use my SLR camera
  16. develop a better understanding of my finances & create a budget
  17. pay off 2 debts
  18. learn to do my eye makeup
  19. try at least two new sewing projects a month
  20. go someplace with snow
  21. organize my fabric and sewing supplies
  22. update my wine file and keep it up to date
  23. get a massage
  24. get my files in order and keep them organized
  25. take vitamins daily
  26. get Rhubarb Baby off the ground (I'll talk more about this later)
  27. get a new blog up and going and post at least once a week - DONE! (at least partially)

*Funny that 16 and 17 totally go against the name of this blog.  Ha!

New Year, New Blog

One of my goals for 2011 is to create a new blog and post at least once a week.  So . . . . here we are!

I want to use this blog to share things I love.  The stuff I craft, my family, things that inspire me, food I make, my life in general, and of course "consumer items."  I think I find stuff every day I would love to buy, and I believe my husband and mother are tired of seeing all the things I would love to buy!  But now, if anyone ever wants to buy me something (and please feel free to do so), they will be able to find an idea here. Hehe.

So, hi and welcome!
