I am in the creating mood… Unfortunately I need to be writing a paper instead of doing this… Christmas break cannot come soon enough!

     I really need to re-upholster our dining room chairs. They are in stripes of a country red, green, and cream right now. The colors kinda go, but I want to change it. And since I am talking about re-upholstering… I loveee this chair! I wish I could find a chair like it to re-do for my office!

     I also need to finish up this flower headband that I have been working on for Lady Pair. Here is a sneak peek… I did some hand stitched embroidery on it. I think its going to look really great! 

    Whenever I finally make a trip to Hobby Lobby (next week!), I want to make these…. 

     You may be wondering, “ummmm why don’t you just go to Hobby Lobby?” Well.. there are like 4 Hobby Lobby’s very close to me, but I am trying to be good and save money. Plus they have all their Christmas stuff out, so I know if I go… it might be disastrous. So… I am waiting until after this week is over, then I will have time and a little money to be able to go. 
     This week consists of: 

    •  International Business Politics paper due on Wednesday at midnight
    • Trip to Louisiana on Thursday night after class
    • Friday- Dustin & Chelsea’s wedding! (HAPPY WEDDING DAY!!) 
    • Friday night- drive back home
    • Saturday morning- drive in the opposite direction to San Antonio
    • Sunday morning- watch Brannon run 13.1 miles at the San Antonio Rock & Roll 1/2 Marathon
    • Sunday night- drive home

    I will need a consistent supply of coffee and energy drinks if anyone wants to contribute to the fund. :)

     I hope everyone else has a less busy, but equally fun week!



    Happy Holidays?

    Can you believe it? It is actually only 60 days until Christmas!! OH my word! I am so excited and emotional about that right now. I miss my family soooo much its crazy. I haven’t seen my Grandma in… I think 2 years. That makes me cry. I want to call her right now, but I am afraid I am going to get on the phone and cry. So, I will try again tomorrow Grandma. *I <3 You!*

     I have decided that I am going to skip the fall decorations this year. I was going to go out and buy cute pumpkins and a scarecrow for our yard, and fall decor for the house. Since I live in Houston, we end up skipping from Summer to Christmas. So, after Brannon gets done with his next Half Marathon (on November 13th) we’re going to go buy our Christmas tree! Unless… I go crazy and go buy it next week!! Which I might, when I hear my mom tell me how she is decorating… *cursed/blessed from mothers Christmas passion*

     I just got done uploading pictures to my Etsy shop from the photo shoot I did last week with my sister. Here are a couple of my favorites:

    Isn’t this so Mad Hatter?!

    My sister is so beautiful. 

      I hope you all are having a wonderful week! I am going to go start making soup for dinner tonight. Even though it is 86 degrees outside right now, I am in denial.  After Brannon and I run in the heat (sad), going to make soup, grilled cheese, listen to my new Michael Buble Christmas CD (!!!!), then attempt to convince him to cuddle and watch Elf with me. :)

     ::HUGS:: to all!

    Pinterest Addict

     Have you gotten into the craze that is pinterest? If you have not, I don’t know whether to tell you to stay away or to hurry right on over and sign up!! Because it is extremely addicting! Last night my sister and I were up until 2am her time, and 1am my time on pinterest!

     It is amazing because you will find something as creative as this:

      ** If you have an old trunk you don’t want, I will send you my address and shipping money and you can send it my way!! I just love this and want to try it so bad. :)

     Or maybe, you will find something on pinterest really funny and adorable like this:

    **If I ever have a kid… He will get dressed up in something adorable and crazy like this for Halloween! 

    So, that’s all I am going to show you, because I could sit here and show you 1,000s of images I have saved. But the cool thing about pinterest is that pictures hold links to recipes, or diy tips! I have gotten so many ideas, and you will find things created around my house that I have done because I found them on pinterest.
    Go check it out! And leave your email in a comment on this blog and I will send you an invite, because right now you have to be invited to join. Kinda like how facebook used to be. I am sure in the near future it will be much easier to join though!

     ps- There is an app for it too!

    New things going on in the lives of Mr. & Lady Pair. . .

     – Brannon is doing great at work! I am so glad that he likes working there, and so glad its not a long drive for him! He is also training for another 1/2 Marathon. *o my* Its the Rock and Roll 1/2 Marathon in San Antonio on November 13th. I will be there with bells on, and a big sign that says “RUN BRANNON RUN!”

    -I have been busy with school. Taking 4 classes this semester. 3 of which are international business classes. *gah!* Lots of reading happening to say the least. Also, I have been trying to get my business up and booming!! So if you haven’t stopped by please do, and tell your friends.

    To all of our distant friends and family… Brannon and I miss you all and are lonely without you. Everyone should move to Houston! :)

     Until next time!
