I went to World Market yesterday in search for some curtains.

These are cute.


But I think a little too turquoise for the room with this color scheme.


I also like these nesting tables.  Adorable.


I didn’t buy anything but some little red mugs.

Celeb Gossip Update                           In Progress


If this doesn’t wet your whistle, you are dead to me.


I decided to apply to grad school at U of I, so I have been working my butt off all day on my essays.  And begging people to write me letters of recommendation (thanks, guys!)  Deadline is Saturday, so I may be stressing until then, but I am hoping to finish the paperwork during the day tomorrow and submitting it in the evening (Just before LOST), and then having a cocktail or ten.  I am such a loser, I might be going here tomorrow evening.  If I finish everything.


I need to go back to school, and I know I want to get a degree in Library Science, but I don’t know where to go!  I have two options if I want to be an ALA certified librarian.  I can go to U of I for an online degree (deceptive because some of the classes are not online) or to Dominican University for a “real” degree.  Employers never know if you got your degree online or not, so that’s not really an issue. 

I thought I would have the whole spring to decide, but I just found out that the deadline for U of I’s program is March 1.  And I need 3 letters of recommendation to get in.  That’s in 4 days.  Luckily I have a student teacher right now, so actually right this second she is teaching my class while I sit at the desk and type this.  So in theory, I could be filling out my application right this minute.

I finished my taxes, but I have recertification to worry about, and some financial mumbojumbo.

I just don’t know if I’m really ready for this.  Arg!

What do you think?


I really like these prints- I was inspired to redecorate at Monica’s house last night.

Available here.

I also LOVED her wall of frames, kindof like these.


I might do something like it above our fireplace, that or this idea (Via Fourbedtwobaths).


I would put them here.


Vacay Dos

One night in PR we got to see a private concert by the Goo Goo Dolls. I am not the greatest GGD fan by any means, but I own a couple of their Cd’s. I thought the concert would be crowded and gross, but there were less than 500 people there. They did a cover of “American Girl” by Tom Petty, my fave song ever. They did run out of beer, though. This is us before the concert (actually dinner before the concert).


And in the rainforest where we went on a really cool hike.


This is the waterfall we were supposed to swim in, but the water was too high.
