So we have a kitchen gadget/utensil drawer, just like everyone else. Except not everyone's looks like this, does it? Wondering what that green thing is? It cuts the crust off of your sandwiches and makes little trees. Necessary and thank you Mom, for knowing me enough to know that yes. I need that.
|Look at this mess. Seriously, look. There's some cool things in there. A guitar shaped cheese "shredder" Get it?|
|Angie and I did this in college to plan out our sophmore year dorm room. That included to-scale cut outs of us as well. Of course.|
Look at that! Three things are evident here. 1. I like color. 2. I love me some kitchen gadgets. 3. I'm getting old because I'm far too excited about drawer organizers.

A month ago I tried to win a few things in this giveaway contest Dr. Oz was holding, thanks to people I follow on Facebook. Guess what! I won something and its pretty cool!
|It came with free engraving! No commas allowed.|
Also, thanks Ang, for the help on what to have it engraved with. Everyone needs a reminder now and then.

About how I don't plan on ever "growing up."
|This is what you do when you find a bag of eyeballs. You must.|
I glanced at some of the objects on my desk at work today to realize I have a stapler with added eye balls, (of course) a mini rubber ducky, and a rubberband ball (that I obviously made) all right next to each other. Now that I look at that Wite Out, it looks kinda dull doesn't it??? Needs some spicing up.

I love giving gifts. I love searching until I find the perfect thing for someone. And you know what, I love giving them early because I can't help myself. The excitement of knowing someone just may love the thing you give them is just...too much to bear (is that the right bear?). No one understands this more than Mike. In fact, he is far worse than I when it comes to giving gifts early. He literally cannot help himself.
Our wedding is coming up in September, you know six (6) months away. I gave him his wedding present in January. It was Packer Stock with both of our names on it including my new name. My reasoning for giving it early is that there is an annual share holder meeting coming up before our wedding that I assumed he would want to go to. That was my reasoning anyways.
Cut to last week, Wednesday, Mike tells me I may have a surprise waiting for me on Thursday. Nope it didn't come. This left me another day to try and figure out just what the surprise could be. I for sure thought it was something four wheeler related, with the new four wheeler and all. But I was wrong! Mike walked in the door after work on Friday with two gift bags (that he stole from my closet) and said this is your wedding present. I said, "You can't wait?" He said, "No!!! You saw how upset I was when it didn't show up yesterday!!" And with that, I opened it.
Yee! This was my surprise!! I had zero clue even though I did see him talking with Kari, his cousin and my BFF. Turns out he was consulting with her on what to get. He got a great deal on a used Canon Rebel xsi on ebay. Its in great condition and came with all kinds of extras too. Its the same exact one Kari has so we can consult with each other. Later on Mike asked me "are you glad I didn't wait?" Heck yeah, I am!

Just like so many other people, I have a slight addiction to Pinterest. Its not necessarily the worst thing I've ever been addicted to (donuts). While it may leave me sitting in front of the computer dreaming of the things I will do, sometimes I actually do them! Or, I make Mike do them!
This first one is a wedding project that I'm happy to say is almost completed! As you can see I have some fixing to do on the corners but its nothing a a little hot glue can't fix.
The awesome thing about these letters? I'm going to use them in future babies room. I just love them.
This second project, well I had full intentions of doing it, but I needed a little help from Mike and he just took over. I'm not complaining.
We found this frame at a thrift store for five bucks and it just fit perfectly for what we needed. That crooked string? Don't worry, he fixed it.
Those little square pictures are not easy to find a frame for! It's also costly to try and buy a bunch of them! This was a really inexpensive fix to our problem. Thrift store frame, some eyelet screws and twine from the hardware store and some miniature clothespins from walmart. I call this a success!
This picture...well I saw it a lot on pinterest as well. Maybe not quite this awesome, though. Get on pinterest, and get busy pinning!
