Blog Move.

So I made a big, bad blog decision. I am going to move this blog, my personal blog, over to my business blog address.

Apparently, online buyers like to make a "personal connection" with handmade sellers. I can't blame them! I also update that blog way more frequently than I do this one. For once, you might actually know what we are up to!

I still may update this from time to time, but for now...set your readers to

Belated Halloween.

The 15 or so trick or treaters that came over were thrilled to see 
a real black cat. 
On a second note, I have never seen a cat love 
a man's beard 
the way that Bronco loves Tony's beard.

Excuse me.

Apparently personal blogging is not my calling in life.
I am sure that those of you reading this blog already know what we are up to these days.
We have been back in Mesa for two months and I swear it feels like we have been here for two weeks. I don't get it. Aside from being way too hot, it's not so bad this time around! Really though, it's a cool city. I can't/shouldn't complain at all. But seriously...come on. Alright, alright I am done.

Enjoy these terrible pictures of our house. I took them late at night, in the middle of packing for a trip to Vegas to see my Parents. Everyone should spend the night at Caesar's Palace at some point in their life. Amazing. I could have lived in the bathroom.

Back on subject...we are still unpacking as we wait to buy things like a dresser, bookshelves, paint, a laundry get the idea?

We got our matching nightstands at DI for $1.00 a piece! They 
are really cool old green tv trays. Love love them.
And yes, I got suckered into the vinyl decal trend.
Sue me, I love cuckoo clocks.

Kitchen table, obviously. Mostly just showing off my favorite table cloth
and the awesome tiered stand that Rose made me.
We are in the middle of painting the kitchen robins egg blue.
It makes me (almost) enjoy doing the dishes.

What house is complete without a $7.00 lime green armchair?
No house, I tell you!

Tony is going to build a low profile bookcase for me on this wall.
Just like the one in this picture that Emily built on Design Star. All the way over on the right, there
Totally in love with Emily, by the way. But that's for another day.

Our living room. First couch ever. We are in sweet, sweet love with each other.
Excuse the lack of art on the walls, we are going to paint soon.

Meet Bronco.
He is cute. That's a terrible understatement. I am so in love with this cat.
It's embarrassing.

He truly believes that Tony's beard is a living thing. He snuggles into it
(almost) more than me.

He has great poses.

And he loves to sleep in my sewing machine.

Were there enough pictures for you?
All five of you?

Maybe my next post will be within the month.
You never know.
Aim high!

Why didn't I think of that?

I was amazed and astounded by this girls wedding dress even before I read that she designed the pattern for the bodice and crocheted every single doily herself. Wow.

We've been busy. 
Nothing spectacular either.
Tony goes to school and cleans pools till about 6 every night.
I do my greeting card thing and (attempt) to fill my Etsy shop.
Sometimes I swear it's like we don't see each other
until our mandatory Friday night dates.
You can never go wrong with Powell's City of Books!
We leave for the beach this Friday night,
we'll be home Monday.

So Tell Me When You Hear My Heart Stop.

Oooh I love Lykke Li. Not only is she talented but she also has amaaazzing fashion sense AND she's stunning. Not fair.


I'm not usually a fan on music videos. I think they are normally dumb, sometimes they ruin the song, and I want to associate the song with my life, not the artists (I'm so selfish). BUT this video is perfect (as are all of her videos). Not only is the song beautiful and heartbreaking, but you can listen to it on repeat for three days and not get tired of's a proven fact.

Listen to her album Youth Novels if you get the chance.

In the meantime, watch and enjoy this beautiful video.
