I wanna love somebody, love somebody like you..-Keith Urban

How cute are these necklaces from HandyMaiden on! I was thinking of things I would want for Valentines Day, and I came across these necklaces, I really love the Owl! They are all under $27 which isn't bad for a handmade necklace, they are just too cute!

And if you don't like necklaces, she also makes the cutest little animal figurines, such as these cute little Polar Bears, which are $15.

Words got it, there's going to be a party- Brantley Gilbert

I think we all want that sexy body, am I right? Well, I am ready to get back in shape for summer! As I am typing this, I'm sitting outside 'finally' enjoying this amazing seventy-something degree weather, I have my pj pants rolled up, along with my long sleeve shirt, trying to get a little sun, and Vitamin D.. my dog, Maxwell, is passed out on the ground enjoying to the sun as well. It feels amazing out right now. But as I sit out here, I think about summer, and how I want that perfect, toned, summer body. I was flipping through the new SHAPE magazine earlier, and came across my favorite model, Marisa Miller, her body is amazing.. I know she works out everyday, and eats healthy.. but wow, I would love to have her body. And I can! I really hate people that look at other people that are in shape and say "I wish I had their body".. YOU CAN! You just have to push yourself to do it, that means water instead of soda, carrots instead of unhealthy snacks, fruit when you crave something sweet, salad instead of a fast-food burger. I am going to get my body back! I used to have the flatest stomach, and the most perfect butt.. now I have a pouch, and a huge butt! -Haaa, some people might like that, but me.. not so much. Anyway's I was reading her advice in Shape magazine, and I also read her how-to tips on getting that perfect summer body. I wanted to show you some of the moves. They look pretty easy, let's see if they actually work!

A. Hold a dumbbell in each hand out to the sides at shoulder level. Circle arms forward 15 times, then back 15 times. Next, bend elbows 90 degrees. Rotate forearms down so they’re parallel to the floor, then back up. Do 15 reps.

B. Finally, bring elbows together in front of you, then back out. Do 15 reps.

A. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and hold a dumbbell in each hand in front of your chest, elbows bent and palms facing each other.

B. Pull your abs in and lean forward and to the right, using the same motion as you would when doing a regular crunch. Repeat to the other side to complete 1 rep. Do 15 to 25 reps.

A. Get in plank position on forearms on the round side of a Bosu.

B. Hold for 30 seconds, then turn to the left and balance on right forearm, feet staggered and left arm up. Hold for 30 seconds, return to center, and switch sides to complete series. Repeat entire series once.

A. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, then squat and put hands on floor in front of feet. Hop feet back, then forward again.

B. Jump up, catching air and raising hands overhead. Continue for 1 minute. (Add a push-up while you're in plank pose for more of a challenge.)

I'm in your arms, about to make love for the first time.. -Keith Anderson

So I'm starting to see a little bit of Spring.. I'm really excited about this, not only do the flowers start to bloom, and the tree's leaves start to come back out, but the weather starts to feel soo nice out! I will be able to wear dresses without being cold, or I'll be able to wear my white shorts with cute dressy tops, and light sweaters.. and I will start posting more 'Look of the Day' looks.. la la la, spring can you come faster, please?

That's my baby, and she's my kind of crazy..-Brantley Gilbert

You know what I love,
 when my brother's girlfriend, Brittany, makes me Cheesecake
 She knows how to earn those Brownie Points!
The Cheesecake was divine, it was the kind that just melted in your mouth.. and the crust was all crumbly, just how I like it :) -Did I mention the Strawberry looked like heart, so sweet!
The only way she can come over is if she brings me a slice of Cheesecake every time!

Do you have a favorite desert? Please do share!

Gimmie that girl with her hair in a mess, sleepy little smile with her head on my chest- Joe Nichols

Let's talk young love,
we've all been there.. it's one of the best feelings in the world, I sure do remember my first young love..
I would do anything to have that amazing feeling again, those butterflies, the holding hands, the giggles.. those first kisses. La, it was just so fun. Luckily mine took place in summer, which meant being out on the river, eating Blueberries out of eachother's mouths.. splashing in the water, holding on to eachother, hiding under a towel, while kissing, watching the sun go down, and looking at the stars on the dock. I had some of the best memories when I was fifteen. It feels so long ago..
Well I wanted some pictures of young love, so who would be better to ask then my brother and his new girlfriend, Brittany (who I adore, she's a sweetheart!). I asked them to let me take some of them, and let's just say they make me sick! They are both too cute! I love the way they both look into eachother's eyes.. then they give little kisses, and usually they end up making fun of one another..

Do you remember your first love..

I keep wandering around in circles, in a daze..-Jason Aldean.

It happened!
My piglet, Chloe' Cupcake Monster, finally started squeaking! I have had her since 9.11.10, and she might have made one or two sounds.. but not like this! I am so happy :)
My other Guinea Pig, Molly, would squeak everytime she heard you going into the fridge, or if you were opening up bags.. she always knew that meant 'food'. I always loved that. But this pig, is soo shy.. until yesterday! It's so cute. I love her, she's a little adorable piglet, she has the craziest hair i've ever seen, it reminds me of a shark sometimes. Did I mention I let her outside; my other pig would never move if I let her outside, (she was kept in a cage, stuck in one place with her previous owner), so I didn't think pigs could like ... run.. well mine took off! Good thing my brother was there, or I would have lost her. She is suuuuper fast! And she can jump out of her cage, she's sneaky alright.
And now she squeaks!
 But I just wanted to share the great news with you all on the\is fabulous Friday!

The preacher man say's it's the end of time & the Mississippi River, she's a going dry.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
My mum has made her first Artisian Bread! Doesn't it look like something you'd buy in France, and share with friends while eating a tasty salad, and sipping some red wine..  I told her she needs to open a bakery, the woman looooves to cook! Weather it's bread, pies, cakes, cookies.. she just loves being in the kitchen, making goodies for everyone. Who know's maybe one day she will have her own little famous bakery- and i'll be in it everday!
Do you like to bake? If so, what do you like to bake?
I love hearing what everyone has to say!

From Carolina down to Georgia, smell the the Jasmine and Magnolia..

Summer where are you.. I miss you deeply.
On a lighter note, here are some fabulous rooms that make me feel as if summer is already here..
the sun is outside shinnin', there are frozen Margarita's next to the pool side, friends are lying out on their colorful towels.. ah, I can see it now! I am counting down the days to heat.
Are you looking forward to warmer weather?

Mm, nothing like a bowl of warmness..

Today is one of those rainy days, where you want to make some tasty, warm soup, curl up on the couch, and watch a really good movie or two..
The soup below my mum made, it's verrrry easy! All you do is by a shredded bag of Broccoli, Cabbage, and Carrots. Add some chicken broth, and Soba Noodles (Asian noodles).. and Ta da! Soo tasty, and it's a really fast soup to make.
 Well, I think I'm going to get back to watching this film called Case 39 with Renee' Zellweger, and Bradley Cooper.. it has me on the edge of my seat! I hope you all are having a wonderful, and warm Monday!

Let me get some blue with that orange..

I haven't done a fashion post in nearly forever! (Cause it's been quite cold out, can I use that as an excuse?)
Well, since I can't go outside to do one, why not do one inside the room I'm painting..
These 'clothes' are not just an ordinary clothes, they are actually lingerie, I'm wearing a long grayish-blue skirt slip, with a negligee' over it, and I'm using a see-through robe as a cover up. I also used a vintage pearl pin to add a bit of flow to it. - You can't really tell by these pictures, but it's very romantic looking. Who says you can't wear lingerie on the outside? I can't wait to go out in it! (Of course I might add some black or gray stockings since it's cold out.)
Now, when I did this little shoot right below, it was breakfast time.. so I had to post my bowl of Oatmeal with thrown-in Blue Berries, and my little bowl of Oranges and Berries.. so tasty! The perfect way to start the morning!

Skirt slip-Calvin Klein, Negligee'-mum's closest from back in the day, Pearl Pin-Vintage, and Suede Heels-Target.

Change is good..

Hello ladies,
 I just wanted to show you the color I'm painting my walls.. the name of it is Natural.
I have all four of my bedroom walls painted. But I don't want to post pictures yet, I still have the trim, and the ceiling to paint. (Oh boy). I had to mud yesterday, then I added the first coat of paint, when I woke up this morning, I noticed some more nics in the wall, so I had to re-mud, then paint again! It's such a long project, but it's well worth it! I love the color, it's so cozy, instead of that awful cold white I had before.. Did I tell you guys that for Christmas my parents bought me all new bed stuff? That's right, they got me a white duvet cover; that feels amazzzzing, they got new sheets and pillow cases, two new striped throw pills, a dust ruffle, andddd a fabulous headboard! -All from Ikea- Oh and they got me the cutest painting by Pablo Picasso! I can't wait to show you all after I'm finished!

This here dog, is named Max... he always loves to be right next to me. Unfortunately he does not move once he finds a place to lie down, so while I'm painting, I have to move everything around him.. myself, which takes a little bit of time. -damn dog. He's lucky he's cute while he's sleeping. -and oh look, he even has his own little pillow to prop his head on.

Hello Steve Madden..

Say hello to my new Steve Madden Wedges..
Guess how much they were? ...
Okay, you know me, I always find great deals, and these here shoes, were a great deal!
If you guessed ten dollars, you were correct! 
That's right, only ten dollars
I got them at Marshalls-
I love finding great deals, and me being a size 8 1/2 - 9 1/2, it's usually impossible to find great clearanced shoes, well now I found some, that I just adore!
Spring, can you please come a little faster, thanks.

Ps. I don't know why my nails look yellow, eek- it must be from my pearl colored nail polish.

Hello Extreme Makeover!

Guess who's in my town!

Extreme Makeover Home Edition is in my town! I think it's really neat how they are here! They were in Savannah, GA. last month, but who knew they were making their way to good ol' Beaufort. I have a few friends that volunteered last night, and some more that are volunteering today. I wish I could have volunteered, but unfortunately I am making-over-my-room right now..
I hear that they demolished it yesterday, and last night they were putting down the slab already! Today they got the frame of the house up -man do they move fast!
 It would have been so neat if they came and redid my parents house! I have lived in an unfinished house my whole life! My dad does construction as a career, so it's really hard for him to go to work, then go back to his house, and work on it. But since I'm not working right now, I thought it would be best to help out on the house, starting with my bedroom. (We did just get the ceiling to the kitchen done, but I don't want to show you guys photo's just yet, till all the lights are in.) But my room is going quite fast, I had mudded my walls, cocked certain places, and now I'm getting ready to paint my walls! I can't wait for it to be finished! It's going to look so different, just wait and you will see!
But back to the Extreme Makeover, I'm sure the family needed it more then us. I heard that one of the children got mold poisioning from living in the house, and now she has breathing problems. How horrible! How could you even live in a place like that is what I want to know... what if the other kids have it? She should have got them out of there! I guess it's a good thing they got picked! But I can't wait to see what it looks like! I will keep you guys posted-

Let's not count time..

What's better after a long day of painting your bedroom; well. . laying in a messy bed, reading all the old magazines that were cleared from underneath your bed the day before, while watching Sex and the City, wearing your new cozy, fluffy, warm socks; (that mum got me for Christmas). And eating tasty Oranges.. nothing could be better! 
What do you all like to do after a long day of working?
