Albertson's had carnations on sale this week. They're not my favorite but I saw some cute Easter ideas for them that I may use later on.
I put a bunch of these bags around the place.
The pots of gold were really expensive! But at least I got the gold right?
Gotta represent the shamrock!
This is one of the several mugs that my grandpa used to drink out of. My grandma was giving them away so I grabbed them up. They are actually my favorite to drink out of.
Kendall and I went to dinner with our friends and hung out all afternoon and night. It was really fun.
His present to me!! :) Diamond earrings!
I'm a lucky girl.

It's 2307 Square feet, 4 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathrooms and we got a great deal on it (you know how the market is!)
Here are a few inside pictures but I'd really rather post more when I have pretty things inside to show you all hehe.
As you walk in...
The somewhat eclectic kitchen...(granite countertops, tile backspalsh, stone-ish island)
This is just a sneak peek...if you want more you'll either have to help us move in or come to my housewarming party! Hehe! :)

and the messy space of craft stuff between the couch and love sac:
And here is the after!
And the new organized and not messy craft stuff:
Unfortunately I didn't get a before picture of my candle holder and necklace holder:
But here it is all finished with a candle on it:
I took some sandpaper to everything to distress it:
And for the final touch, my brother Tim and his wife Clarisa and their kids got me a beautiful bouquet of lavendar roses!
They are so beautiful and look amazing on my coffee table in my vases that I bought and used for my wedding reception.
So all in all, my spring break was not too shabby. I'm definately dreading going back to class this week....especially since I get to take an exam on my birthday- hooray.

I made no bake cookies for the first time and they were reallllllyyy yummy. I ate half of them myself and gave the rest away.
I tried out a new recipie for a corn and salsa tortilla soup. It was ok... I'll probably not make it again but Kendall and I ate a few bowls.

It was kind of weird smelling and had crunchy paper on the inside so I decided to line it with my old band music that I had from Junior High/High School and sprayed the inside out with body splash or whatever.
It's still pretty shabby because I'm pretty sure it's made out of cardboard but it gets the job done and I really like how it turned out.
So I know that my closet is such a fascinating subject but as you see, I am still avoiding studying for my exam at ALL COSTS.

Another fun thing I am happy about is this pretty bouquet of roses that I found at Albertson's for 6.99 :)
Looks like they are trying to get rid of their overstocked inventory from Valentine's Day! I looove fresh flowers and I am going to try and keep them around my house from now on.
Hopefully I can keep my blogging up-- my laptop is officially broken and until it's fixed, i'll be uploading my pictures and blogging from my sister's house.
