No, I didn't fall off the face of the earth, just went to the other side of it for awhile! Lots of changes over here for good ol' me. Went to China & Taiwan for two months doing some fun mission work. Uprooted myselffrom Ohio and landed in the sunshine state. Switched up my major from Fine Arts to Business Management, what? Yes, yes I did. And finally, once again, going back into an apartment.
There is nothing to complain about in my life. I'm so blessed its ridiculous.
But you're obviously not here to read my nonsense.... it's all about the pictures, duh, I know.
Everyone has a favorite color. I prefer green. Lots and lots of green...
I love online shopping. Even online browsing is appealing to me. I get lost for hours on the internet, finding things that are ridiculously over priced that I wished were mine. I was on anthropologie website the other day, and I stumbled across the "Artist Stories" page. It's actually very interesting, and I suggest if you have some time to kill or are just simply interested, to go over there and check the page out.
I apologize for the lack of posts. I've had a very hectic week or so. I finally got wifi for my apartment, and then we were robbed, ew. Thankfully, my roommate and I were not home at the time, but the robber did manage to take some of our very most valuable possessions. Life goes on, and all that matters is that we are okay. Although items can be very expensive, they are still replaceable!
Okay, if you didn't guess, I do. We can still be friends if you didn't guess right though... anyways..
My inspiration today is simply, this house. Not only are these images beautifully taken, but the house is a masterpiece in itself! It could seem as if there is just a bunch of clutter everywhere, but I feel that the decorator placed every little thing in this house perfectly. Ugh. This is too good.
This house reminds me of an antique store, except for a really organized antique store. So many treasures to find and so many things to see.
You know how I just moved into my apartment not too long ago? Well, I'm moving into this house, right now, and forcing the home owner to keep every item the way it is and leave it all for me to have and enjoy. I haven't told them this yet though. I'm sure it'll go over just fine when I show up at their door and let them know what's going on.
I'm currently sitting at Starbucks. I wish I could tell you I'm sitting here enjoying my 20oz pumpkin spiced latte, but I can't. I already drank it. Every last sip. Ugh.
Today is the "perfect" weather day for me. About 63 degrees, sunny and also windy. I don't mind the wind, just because it gives me hope that fall is around the corner. Although, this wind would be better if I wasn't sitting outside, in my gym shorts. This weather may be my "perfect" weather, but I'm freezing my butt off. But I chose to sit outside, so I'm done complaining.
If I may direct your eyes to the top of this post, you will see a lovely collage of pictures. I'd like to call it my "fall fun" collage (plus the birkenstocks that i'm dying to own, so I guess sort of a wish list too).
I never crave pumpkin, but tell me it's fall season, and I'm finding every opportunity to have pumpkins surrounding me. Pumpkin candles, drinks, treats, pumpkins in general, it's a little sad. Cool advertising world, you've really hooked me onto the idea of, "Once it's fall, everyone HAS to be in love with pumpkin." All I can tell you is that they're winning.
So, I've been busy. Really busy actually. I've been moving into my apartment. Whew, what a tiring process. Thankfully, I have some really great friends who took time out of their schedule to come help me move couches, mattresses, dressers, and a lot of more crap.
I really didn't think or process in my head, that moving would be sort of a lengthy process. I just sort of figured, wake up, put things in the car, and bling! Done. No Chandler, not one single bit. Somehow I must have let it slip my mind that I would be needing to move couches down a flight of stairs. How do you forget something like that? I don't know, but I sure did.
Today, I chose the inspiration to be, "Going Green". Now this doesn't secretly insinuate that I'm some crazy lib or uptight republican. I'll just let that be unknown for now. This post is simply about incorporating green into your homes. I love the color green. I also enjoy green tea. The Hulk is pretty cool, and we can't forget about Yoda. And if I can, I try to recycle and conserve energy (another meaning of the term, "Going Green"). Get a little green in your life. It's awesome.
Hopefully I'll talk to you all soon, but if not, please know that we are working on getting internet in our apartment. And we are still waiting for our appliances too (yes, we don't have a fridge or an oven right now...).
