My eyebrows WILL be able to do this by the time the summer is over.



I don't care what Courtney Chapman says... I will be able to do this with my eyebrows by the end of summer. Leah and I have made it our goal to be able to do this. It is going to take a lot of practice and some good eyebrow exercises but I believe that it is possible. Even if it seems impossible.

But seriously. This ad is by far one of my favorites ever made by Cadbury. I laugh every time I see it. Especially at the part with the balloon. Who makes up these? Kudos.

a world of possiblities

Well, it is official. I am no longer returning to college in the fall. It's weird. I still have a few internship hours to finish off my degree, and I am having some trouble with that. I interviewed for a position at one location, but it doesn't look like it is going to work out because there are not enough hours that they can offer me. Talk about bummer. It's disappointing, but at the same time I am looking at this as a good thing. It frees me up to another world of possibilities.
So I am pulling out the resume, and I am going to tweak it once again and I am going to get an internship.

I am also renovating my bedroom. There are a few pieces I am getting rid of, a few that I am recycling, and a few new additions. And no more yellow on my walls. I am sad to see the yellow go, but the color will still be there in the gerber daisies that I have in some great new glass jars that I got from Hobby Lobby and from Goodwill. And, I'm putting some great Valspar paint from Lowes on the walls. I'm just a little nervous about the paint. I choose 3 colors, which is riskier than usual for me. I'm unsure... But the more I look at the sample that I painted on the wall, the better I feel about them. In the sunlight, I think I might be a lot(tle) bit in-like. So yeah. Not gonna lie, the more I think about it, the more it is perfect.

Here are a few things that I have found that I am in love with since starting this whole room project:
*I love gerber daisies in white and yellow.
*I love Valspar paint.
*I love Lowes. I can spend hours in there.
*I love HGTV. It is all things fabulous. (And what inspired me to start this project)
*I love Pandora. It has been setting the soundtrack for the whole project. Yesterday I had my channel set to Tyler Hilton. Today I am thinking Rooney.
*I love dollies. They are life savers when moving heavy furniture.
*I love Wooster paint brushes. They have ones with a shortened handle. It allows me to have a lot more control when I cut, and fits perfectly in my little hands.
*I love my hard back books. They are usually my favorite books. And they splash a lot of color on my shelves.

Fantastic. And speaking of fantastic. I got a great phone call from a fantastic Colombian. It made my day.
It's time to buy the paint.
