alright alright alright

In less then an hour we are headed off to texas for christmas!! Excited.

So i'll hurry and blog :)

I know everyone knows we got our couch but i must blog about it so i can look back and be happy all over again. Its beautiful, never been happier.

This picture makes it look kinda blue but its definitely grey.. like the next picture.

There are seriously about 6 different thrift stores all within 10 mins from our apartment and its the best. Id never been to a good will before don't know if this is normal at all of them every where but target donates a bunch of brand new clearance stuff to them here so you can get the target threshold brand for super cheap and brand new. I once saw a bread box at di in rexburg and decided not to get it then went back the next day regretting it and it wasn't there. So when i saw this beauty for $6 brand new from target i didn't even think about it.

I love the wood grains on it, super pretty, but of course i had to add a little something onto it so i went with a few gold strips.......

 And lastly.... i started getting big crushes on kitchen hutchs this past month or two and have been day dreaming about repainting one and putting adorable kitchen things inside of it. But... i live a small apartment and have an even smaller car. so i thought i would probably have to wait a couple years. I thought... if only there was such a thing as a mini hutch. Then at my favorite thirft store here, we went in for some picture frames and everything in the store was 40% off and i saw this. And the label even read mini hutch. It was meant to be. It took trips home with the bottom and top separated but its in my kitchen now and i can't wait to redo it. This is a horrible picture thanks to my dark dark apartment but the wood is actually a very pretty dark wood not as yellow/light wood as it looks and im having a hard time deciding how much of it to repaint or leave wood?... tough choices.
These are some of the colors im thinking..

Which color do you like best? Im thinking dark navy? The teal i cant quite do since i just painted our new tv buffet that color :(

If you ever feel alone. Dont.

Its almost christmas! Here is a picture of our pretty tree. We went with a white one because we both have always wanted to try having a white tree, and now that we have it.. i really like it :) However our tree dies a little every day because of some one named kitty. Every night she climbs up the tree and destroys it. Her heavy body bends all the branches down and we have to get a hammer and push them all up again but they never quite look the same. Its sad. 

Also something new with us is that we have not bought a microwave since we moved, and it has become one of the best things. I actually cook now. We also haven't used our dishwasher since moving either. That started out because we kept forgetting to buy soap but now its just normal and maybe we are saving a few cents on our electric bill? haha. anyways..

I love popcorn. I eat it regularly. I usually don't like sweet popcorns but i tried this cinnamon brown sugar popcorn idea and loved it. I think its because besides butter and salt brown sugar is one of my favorites. 

I was also inspired by lacey who mentioned on her blog that shes made pizza dough from scratch and thought i probably should attempt that since all chad wants to ever eat is pizza. No thanks to martha's recipe (martha stewart) my dough started out real bad. But i just started adding water and hoped for the best and it surprisingly worked out. :) I made chicken bacon pizza. 

 i also finally got a sensy. I've been wanting one for forever and i like it as much as i thought i would :)

And my favorite one direction song from their new cd.

I didn't think I missed you. Now I'm feeling like a fool.

Well it's been awhile i know. I'll try harder? We've been a bit busy with work school and fun. We took a little weekend trip to canada the other week it was lots of fun. We plan to go back again for some fun Christmas lights in Duluth in a week or two. And then we head to Texas for Christmas. So lots of fun planned.

Annnnd we had some fun yesterday. We had a Christmas Day planned and called it festive Friday. Here's some pictures.....

This is at the mall of America. Lots of lights and prettyness.

And of course we went to Panda Express there. 

I've been thinking the reason I don't post as much lately is because our apartment is very very dark unlike our last apartment that had tons of light and so all my pictures don't look quite nice. :( so that leaves me with my Instagram picture which isn't my favorite to blog with since they aren't like new pictures? Anyways tough life. 

I wrote this on my phone btw. We will see how that worked out.?
