My Life as of Lately

I just really suck at blogging.  I'm sorry.  I miss blogging and now that school is done, I hopefully should be writing here more even though I think my computer hates me.  So some stuff I am really into right now...

Planning road trips.  Mainly, planning a weekend get-away with my amazing boyfriend.  We're going to Santa Fe next month.  I just booked the hotel this morning, and I'm really excited that we're taking a trip together.  We are planning to take a chocolate walking tour, go to the Georgia O'Keefe museum, and hit up a yarn store or two.  I'll be sure to try to post pictures of our adventures.

Gardening and landscaping!  We had a new patio poured at my house.  Then Jared & I planted some pansies and roses on Earth Day.  Once we figure out a possible water drainage problem, I'm going to put in some planter boxes and have a small vegetable and herb garden.  I'm thinking tomatoes, bell peppers, basil, chives, and then in the fall I will plant shallot and garlic bulbs.

Decorating.  Well, kind of.  I'm trying to still get my house in order and make it really feel like home.  I'd like to paint some accent walls, but that is low on the list... I should probably get everything unpacked first!!

I'm looking into buying a spinning wheel.  I have a couple leads so we'll see where that leads...

Graduation is Thursday!

I'm exploring a new side of my creativity. Since I have the most wonderful boyfriend who is building me custom bookshelves, I am helping out by staining some of the wood. And yes, that is stain--a colored stain! How cool is that? We found the colored stain at Lowes, a brand called Minwax. I'm really excited to see how these shelves turn out!
