You're so new.

 ...on campus at the University of Illinois. This is the floor of a tucked away bathroom, and I'm in love.
This is our little mini bar! We just got this light and I'm so excited! We have 2 others like it! It is from one of our favorite bars, Mike 'N Molly's!

By the way, do you listen to Surfabilly Freakout??

It is a radio show I'm a part of playing surf/rock/psycho/garage/etc!
We are amazing, and play great music every Thursday night from 9-10pm Central.

Don't live in boring central Illinois? Listen live on

Tune in tonight!!!

FINALLY a craigslist deal! I got this: 

it was posted under the "free" section from Sunday, so I figured it would be gone. BUT it was on the way home from work so why not? It was on Bel Aire Ct, so it had to be good :) haha

I drove past and it was there!! AND it fit in my car!

Eep!!! Can't wait to rearrange the bedroom and do my makeup on this lil thang! Oh, the chair needs serious re-upholstery, but its just a cushion.. easy!

Thrifting and Planting

Hey there!

So I have finally taken some pictures of my recent finds. Nothing too crazy, but I have felt fortunate :)

The pictures are phone pictures, however, because I keep forgetting to steal the man's nice camera. BOO!

Too legit to quit.

EXCITING WEEKEND, and it is only Friday.

 some of the details

it is basically Schlitz-o-rama up in this bitch after his birthday. and i couldn't care less. i mean... look at that clock light, isn't that the most comforting image you've ever seen?

Like the Star Glow dinnerware? There is some currently for sale on my etsy .
