five things friday && pinterest

2 Dec

let’s talk about it: pinterest. i finally gave in a got an invitation to pinterest today at about 2.. I’M OFFICIALLY OBESSSSSSSED. i love it.. i’ve only looked at DIY so far, and i’m absolutely in LOVE with this stinkin’ website! i want to share with you some of the first things i want to tackle.. or at least hope that i’m able to tackle!


i need to find silverware ASAP!

this is a drawing made out of magazines!!!

i’m going to use this:

for this:

look at this sweet DSLR that barbara NEVVVVVVER uses! she’s crazy! i told her i wanted to start using and it and she said ‘what’s mine is yours’ .. so i’m going to accept that invitation (even though shes told me i could use it before) and start learning how to take pictures! i can’t wait!!

i want to do this to my hair:

scrabble! such a cute idea!

i also saw one of my instagram friends using holiday wrapping paper in picture frames. so cute for the holiday season without all the tackyness! i HATE tacky 🙂

apparently i need LOTS of silverware 🙂

those are just a FEW of the one’s i’m completely in love with. there are a lot of great ideas for turning oversized sweatshirts/t-shirts into really cute pieces. i also saw a necklace that somehow uses laces and makes a really great asymmetrical piece! i love all the jewelry ideas. plus, no one would ever have the same piece as me 🙂

now i’m hanging out with this guy (and the other two, of course):

i have to leave for my sleep study in about 20 mins, but i wanted to share my new obsession with pinterest.

since i’m new and you don’t know me (if there is anyone besides janetha reading), i wanted to share 5 things about myself 🙂

1. i’m left-handed.

i may write left-handed, but i play softball (and just about everything else) right-handed.

2. i’m obsessed with dogs (you may have already gotten this idea but i’ll just emphasize it)

i grew up wanting to be a veterinarian, but i decided i liked numbers a little more. i use to volunteer at all the pet hospitals in my area. one time, a newfoundland puppy came in and i completely melted. i will own one, one day. yogi’s enough big, for now! (he weighs 125 lbs)

3. i want to retire in jackson hole, wyoming.

when i was about 12, i spent the summer in utah, montanna, and wyoming and completely fell in love with the all three states. we went digging for dinos, hiking, and white water rafting. it was honestly the best trip i have ever taken. jackson hole just found a place in my heart when we went to visit. i still have the baseball hat i bought when i went there. i could honestly live in any of those three states. they are all gorgeous and there is SO much you can do! fun fact: when we were hiking one day, we found some snow and it ended up having a watermelon flavor from whatever harmless algae was growing in it!

4. from the time i was 11-16 i was the ‘woman of the house’.

my mom had an accident which cause severe brain damage where she experienced seizures and other medical problems. it also triggered severe personality changes, so she decided she was going to live with my grandmother until i was 14. once they both moved back into our house, i was still the one making sure everyone was taken care of. this experience made me mature at such a young age. sometimes i wish i could have that part of my childhood back. if i ever talk about it, you will see my mom and i have a pretty ‘different‘ relationship.

5. i would rather clean than do anything else.

i wouldn’t necessarily call myself OCD, but i do have some ‘tendencies’. i love to clean. i love a clean house. i love the smell of pine sol and clorox, not together, but their appropriate areas. i think the feeling of taking a shower (and getting dressed) and getting in a a bed with fresh sheets is THE BEST feeling in the world. i don’t know how that feeling feels often since we have three dogs who LOVE to cuddle.

okay. that’s it for now. i have to run! i have a busy saturday planned, so hopefully i’ll be able to share some of it with you tomorrow night!
