such random thoughts...

hi! its been a while, but it seems like i say that pretty often! oh well! so here goes my random thoughts!

first off...did you know that if you are with att you can donate to haiti relief by just simply texting them? its a $10 donation and it comes out of your bill. i just think thats the coolest thing ever. so here is the info: just text HAITI (in all caps) to 90999 they will send you a reply and then you just reply back! easy peesy lemon squeasy!!

ok so next i am watching the golden globes and oh my goodness i love the dresses! everyone looks so BEAUTIFUL! even in the rain
i tried to get photos but i cant get them yet...lame

for some exciting pretty things...this is for you Tracy! :)

i have never posted pictures of my studio space (crazy right?) i feel like it will help you understand me a little bit better it is defiantly a great representation of my personality! i hope you love it like i do!

i chose 3 really bright colors that inspire me pretty much all of the time...some of the pictures are older than others so of course you can see that in some pictures there are things that arent in others haha and in the last picture you can see my fave new toy a DRILL!! of my very own! hooray!

ok and lastly there is a giveaway that i want to tell you about! my best friend Emjay is having a great give away! i dont know how many of you know but i am from south louisiana and there we have Mardi Gras! and with Mardi Gras comes lots of really fun things but one of the things i will miss most is king cake! and well guess what Em is giving away??? a KING CAKE!! so go on over to her blog (  and read about the history of Mardi Gras and of the King cake and then of course enter her give away!

well i do believe thats all of the randomness for tonight!
love and cupcakes!!

so many emotions...

im so sorry that i have been away for so long. but i have a good excuse i promise!

i got a job at like the best place ever!!!

HOBBY LOBBY! its soo fun and of course i KNOW all of the merch!
anyway so i started last wed just as a seasonal worker (im still at outback) and then today they officially hired me on as a part time employee! so i can continue to work after the season...and the best part is i wont be on a cash register.....nope nope ill be in whatever department i choose! i am so excited!! i think i am going to pick seasonal...its the department i know the least about is constantly changing so i think it will be a fun and exciting challenge. plus you cant beat the discount!

on a different note.
im also very sad today, my fish died. and i know that that may seem silly but she was a very special fish to me. first of all she moved with me from louisiana. which means that she road in a car for 14+ hours and still lived! but i got her for a special reason with some special people so...
 R.I.P Olive you were an amazing fish!

ok so im sorry this post is lame so i will be back super soon to post something pretty!
