Crazy January Recap…

Oh my goodness, I’ve been away from the blogosphere for a while… Life got kinda busy and chaotic for a while, but I’m back! Even though things were crazy, I still have some photos to show for it… This is my January…

ruby in tub

My little Ruby kitten… she likes to hide everywhere and get into everything!


Mmmm… The Dunkin Donuts by my house had a promotion for free coffee every Monday for about two or three months and it finally ended… I’m sure I’ll be back soon for more though.. just what they wanted.

trader joes

I discovered that there is a Trader Joe’s in Brookfield! Before now, the only stores like this were in Milwaukee and there was no way I was driving that far just to marvel at the groceries… but I found sooooo much good stuff! Boston Lettuce for salads, spinach and frozen raspberries and mango for smoothies, pomegranate blueberry cereal, strawberry chia and green smoothie/juice drinks, beet juice, and pomegranate and apricot yogurt with granola! If you are near Bluemound Road, more towards Mayfair Mall, make it part of your trip! So worth it!

peacock couch

This couch is from Crate & Barrel when we were just browsing at furniture. It is the most comfortable sofa ever! Too bad it was soooo expensive!

ikea becca

We made the trip to Schaumberg, Illinois to browse Ikea with our friend Becca who lives in Elgin. I’m such an organizing geek, so it was a lot of fun looking at all the different room setups they had on display.

Of course we had to stop at Chick-fil-A for Brian….

The waffle fries are pretttyy good!

Irish cream

My grandma made some Irish Cream to bring to “cousin’s day” when she gets together with her cousins once a month to talk about ancestry and geneology… My mom and I usually tag along for the interesting stories.

vintage frames

I was inspired by one thing or another on Pinterest and I came up with this idea for our wedding table numbers… I went to three different Goodwill stores to find these picture frames in all different sizes, mostly wallet and 5 by 7s. My plan is to make some coral chalkboard paint for the inside and then write the different numbers in chalk! I’m sure the finished product will be on here at some point!

thrift store camera

After a successful Goodwill run, I went to the Fox River antique mall and found some really interesting gems… including this Ansco camera! I rarely see antique cameras like this with the bulb intact…

coral cabinet

Isn’t this coral display cabinet the cutest? Coral is my latest color obsession…

vintage skirt

There were tons of neat clothes there too… this is one of many. A vintage floral skirt like this would be so perfect to wear to a bridal shower!

next saturday

This book made me crack up like no other… I stood there in the freezing antique shop paging through it and could not resist purchasing it. All I can say is this kid is so nuts and adorable… and hilarious.


With all this activity, there has to be some down time… I prefer Yogi Peach Detox Tea… so relaxing…

new tv

We got a new television! Brian was eyeing this one up ever since we had to wait around at Best Buy for 45 minutes to get our iPhone deal. To make it even sweeter, there were a ton of Super Bowl weekend deals to make the decision easier. Now we have pretty much everything we need furniture-wise for our apartment!

gel nails

Yesterday I got my nails done at Ulta… I had enough reward points for a free OPI Gel Manicure! Pretty cool… I was wracking my brain all day at work deciding on the perfect color and I decided on “You Don’t Know Jacques” as the main color and “A Grape Fit” as the accent color. I love the color, but the nail tech seemed like she didn’t know what she was doing… she missed the sides of my nail on some parts. Hmm, oh well… it was free.

tegan and sara

I’ve been playing this album allll day! I love it so much… When I get new music I have a tendency to just listen to it on repeat, non-stop…
