Things that make me smile =)

New Projects!
I picked up this lovely desk at Unique thrift when Becca was visiting. Becca insisted that a cute desk like this one that only cost $15 could not be passed up! It is an adorable old thing but is gonna need a little TLC! Can't wait to show you how it turns out.
Finished projects!

I finished these candle sticks a few weeks ago they are the perfect center piece for my Valentines day display.
New things for my kitchen!

I found that cheery yellow pot at Goodwill last week, all it needed was a little sanding and staining of the handles and tada good as new! I found the cute juice container in CO Springs while thrift shopping with D's mom Linda. The adorable coffee mug is from Starbucks. Its a mini one that I thought would be the prefect gift for my niece Adreanna who had a birthday last week. She and Isaiah love hot coco! And that delicious looking wrap, well that's from Target. I have fallen in love with them. It is packed with red cabbage carrots cucumber, lettuce and covered with avocado YUM!
The thing that brings the biggest smile to my face however is the fact that 6 hours from now I will be boarding a plane in order to fly home to WI for a week, and D is coming with me! Hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines Day! XOXO

{Fill in the blank}

Fill In the Blank
I saw this fill in the blank here and decided to play along, you should too...

1. If I weren't a Nurse I'd love to Own a shop with my best friend Becca, we could thrift shop all day and re-purpose things all night.
2. When I'm super upset I usually get quite and want to go on a walk or something.
3. My favorite thing about myself is my thrifty eyes (i can spot a great bargain).
4. If I found $100 dollars in the pocket of last winter's coat I'd spend it on either a laptop (the rest would be paid for with my tax return) or a new SLR camera
5. Even though some people might consider this a flaw, I love an insane amount of antique/grandma styled things.
6. I love the way I feel when I just washed my face, my P.J.'s are on and I'm about to cuddle up to a movie with Dustin and he tells me I'm beautiful.
7. I love my hair when it's in a simple messy up do.
