New things!

It's fun to get new things! I'm still trying to get our place to have more personal touches in it, don't get me wrong, it feels like home, I just want to put up pictures and little things around the apartment.

Recently we finally used all of our Bed Bath and Beyond gift cards from our wedding, and I got some things while out with JoAnn and Amber.

This is our new shoe rack, it hangs on our bedroom door, and it can hold 36 pairs of shoes! It saves us a lot of room in our closets, which is very nice :-) Plus, this thing is pretty sturdy so it should last for a long time.

This is our new coat rack! Isn't it nice? It matches our lamps well, and it can also hold umbrellas.

This is our new table cloth, and place mats

Our table looks so nice

I hung this in the hopes that the weather will obey :-)
I got this from JoAnn

This is me, wearing my new shirt. I know they aren't the best pictures of me, but I love the shirt!

My new hair! It really brings out my eyes... which maybe you can't tell in this picture. Anyway, it's fun to be a red head too :-)

What's new in your lives?

New Hair!

So, I had fun being a blonde. I think I'll have to do it again sometime...

One of my dear friends, Bryn, got married March 12. She asked me to be her Maid of Honor, or Matron I guess :-) So, of course I said yes! She also used the same photographer that I had, which is awesome, because Abbie Warnock is amazing!

Well, my blonde hair was growing out. I still loved it, however it had grown out about 3 inches or so. I needed my hair to look good for Bryn's wedding, so I had to do something.

Money is kind of tight for Michael and I, as I'm sure it is for most people, and salons are expensive. So we went to the store, and I got a box of hair dye, then for the first time in my life I dyed my hair all by myself! It was kind of blotchy, so I dyed it again the next day. I really like it.

This is me with the dye in my hair, as I wait for the timer to go off. Michael thought I looked funny so he took a picture :-) I'm glad he did, cause he was right, it's silly. LoL

This is Michael and I at Bryn's reception. See the red? I know, it's not the best picture of my hair, I'll try and take more for you.

I loved my maid of honor outfit! Bryn's friend Edi made the dresses, they turned out great. The gloves, veils and jewelry are so cute! and the dress is such a great color.

I've been a blonde, brunette and red head :-)
Happy blogging everyone!

Were you wearing green?

Note: This post is the same as the one in my other blog, enjoy reading it again :-)

Happy Saint Patrick's Day Everyone!! I have always had a special place in my heart for this holiday. There's just something nice about seeing everyone wear your favorite color ;-)

I told Michael he needed to wear all green today, like me. However, as much as I'm sure he wanted to, we were lucky to even find a green shirt for him. Maybe next year I'll make him wear ALL green with me :-D

My dad is 3/4 Irish, so I have quite a bit of Irish blood in me. AND I not only have a very pale complexion, I also dyed my hair red! (really it was for my friends wedding, but I like to tell people it was so I'd look more Irish.)

I love to get all dolled up for St. Patty's day, but the last few years have been rocky between us. I've been feeling kind of sick today, my tummy has been hurting all day, and I thought I was going to "toss my cookies" earlier. However, I guess this is a step up from last year, last year I was very sick (it came on suddenly on St. Patty's day, and left soon after). I threw up 10 times that day...

I have high hopes though that next year I will be even healthier on this wondrous day of green! Really, it's probably just a test of my faith in the holiday. Or, the fates are trying to get me to change my favorite color. One or the other.

Please ignore the fact that this is not a good picture of me. Like I said, I've been feeling sick today.

This is me, after work. Yes, I went to work like this. Green stockings, pants, tank top, shirt, bracelet(not pictured) and earrings(also not pictured) green sweater (not pictured) green hair ties, and red hair! What can I say, I love wearing all green!
Sorry not everything was pictured, I just got home and wanted to change to my pj's. You're lucky I got a picture :-P

Last year I also had green shoes but I couldn't find them, and I had suspenders, but I didn't feel like wearing them... haha, maybe next year!

So, I went green today. Did you?

Making Me Happy

These pictures are making me happy!
For those of you who follow my other blog, this post will be very familiar :-) I just wanted to share the love.

I borrowed these pictures from my sisters facebook. I think she got them from google imager, I wish I could give credit to who took them.

So, what is making you happy today?
