Growing Up!

Since I cannot decide what I want to be when I grow up, I am going to summer school. Dental hygiene isn't enough torturing, so I shall finish DH and move onto nursing. I know, I know.. you are thinking.. Haley, you are a moron.  I am. I am taking Chemistry and Statistics this summer, will finish DH in the fall and spring, hopefully pass national and state boards and then start a yearlong advanced nursing program(if I get in) for the next year. What have I gotten myself into? I start in 40 I'll let you know!

Only for the disgusting.....

You can only watch this video if you have disgusting humor like me. If you don't, then you will be totally offended and probably defriend me. Don't say I didn't warn you. For your viewing pleasure!

I LOVE HUBS (Ridculous Sappy Post)

I know I'm never sappy, but right now.. it's late and I just watched this movie that made me realize just how truly blessed I am. My hubby is seriously the best. He works hard everyday so I can go to school and one day figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Yes, I definitely complain because he still has not unpacked his suitcase from our cruise 2 weeks ago, he leaves dirty dishes in the sink and doesn't wash them out or put them in the dishwasher and the list goes on, but overall I love him... A LOT! I wish we spent more time together and enjoyed more of the same things, but we are on the opposite end of the spectrum! Nonetheless... I am so thankful for him and so thankful for all the sacrafices he has made for us.

My damn friends are either getting married or having babies. They won't spare me a freaking year to get things in order..I am hosting a million showers. Don't get me wrong, I love them all!! I just want to be all crafty, but I can't be when I am going to school. I have all these fun and great ideas and nothing. Just today, I had this great idea of how cute I was going to wrap a friend of mines gift.... yeah, not so much. She got the gift on her front door step with the receipt tucked in the side of the box. That's apparently how I do things.

She did get the unwrapped gift, but I made up for it when I made the door hanger for the hospital when her little bundle arrives. I must admit, it's hella cute (with a little help from BFF) Of course, I don't have a final picture because I forget to do that kinda stuff.. but just imagine how cute it is.. (maybe I can get her to send me a pic)
imagine the letters at the bottom are a cute green color that was distressed and a little pink kinda came through. There were little balls at the top R and L of the board that were green too. it hangs by the ribbon. It's so cute.. I wish I had taken a pic of the finished product. I am working on BFF's too! I'll for sure have a picture of it!

Getting crafty with it

ok, so boy have I been crafty. Bad thing, I totally didn't do a very good job of keeping up with my crafty projects via camera.. so the pics go in spurts.... Random I know.
OK, so it started out with some really FAB knobs I found at "Hob Lob" (totally stole that word from Thrifty Decor Chick) I then got a little excited about the knobs and started buying other non necessary items. I hate it when that happens.
So, one of the items I bought (or shall I say two items I bought) are the little wooden 2 for a buck things. I sanded them nicely and then decided on some paint colors and gave em a nice color (the one above is gray)
Then, I cut out some cute scrapbook paper (another one of those unnecessary items purchased at the store) I modpodged the paper to the piece of wood. Then, I sanded the edges of the sandpaper so it would look "rough." You should also wait til th emodpodge dries, unless you are like ridiculously impatient that you want to get it finished RIGHT NOW.
TA DA!!  Screw the knobs in and cut the backs of the screws off with a miter saw! They are awesome. I love em!!! I attached a picture hanger thing from the back of it. I have necklaces hanging from one and my apron hanging from another ( I don't cook, but it looks really cute in my kitchen)

I moved on to another project after that. I admit, this project was late at night and I was bound and DETERMINED to make this thing come hell or high water. I straight up rigged this thing together.. just because I wanted to see it soo bad. so here is the finished product...
It's a magnet board. I had some leftover 2x4's and I screwed some leftover screws into the magnet board (make note: leftover sounds like a great term to use, but the screws were too long, so they poke out the back of the 2x4.. way to have patience haley) Anyway, then i made the magnets... and that thing is hanging in my kitchen. It looks great too!!
