Life Lately...

 So, I thought maybe a fun way to get back into the blogging game would be to do a sort of "life lately" roundup. These are some of the happenings from this past month. Can you believe February is almost over?! I'm kind of glad, this has been a not very fun semester for me.
 I made a new banner for our house! It replaced the "Its Fall Y'all" banner that we've had up since September. Did I mention that our baby Christmas tree is still up. We like our holidays around here.
 My life has pretty much revolved around scrap-booking. And I'm completely okay with it. I go through phases of what craft obsessions. This is the scrap-booking phase I suppose. Also, the above picture is what my living room looks like...I know, I wouldn't want to live with me either...
 I've been going home almost every weekend this semester and as a result I've enjoyed many wonderful sundays with my mom. We've been enjoying some yummy oatmeal at a local coffee shop before Church. Its been a nice tradition that I wish I could partake in every weekend.
 I made some uber adorable valentines for my far-away friends. I thought they turned out pretty cute!
I made this adorable valentine banner from card stock and combined it with a banner I picked up from JoAnns. this a running theme? I think yes. 
 For valentines day, the fab four went out to take advantage of the buy-one-get-one-free deal at Starbucks. Jocelyn, the one member of the fab four that never makes an appearance in our pictures, was my valentine. We played connect four. Aren't we romantic ;)
 For my birthday my sister and I got pedicures. It was something I'd been wanting to do since camp and I'm so glad I got to have a few minutes of being pampered. 
 Selfies for days guys. Sorry for the face spam...
 So I guess this is one secret that just can't be kept. I am 20 years old...and I like My Little Pony. I have liked my little pony since the 5th grade (I kept it a secret then too!) and it turns out the ponies are back. I have (I can't believe I'm admitting this) started watching the adorable tv show on netflix while I craft. I just can't help it! There is something so adorable about those ponies! 
And lastly, I had the big birthday. And I became obsessed with the Over app. Seriously you guys should check it out, best $2 I've spent in a long time. And your instagrams will never be the same. 

So there you have it folks! My life lately! Thanks for sticking with me!


  1. I love scrap booking! I do it rarely, it's more of a special occasion kind of thing. The last one I made was 5 years ago as a 1 year anniversary present for my now fiance!
    By the way- what is your instagram? I don't think I am following you!

    1. You should get back into scrap booking, its a blast! And my instagram is @thesquirrelnextdoor. I'd love to follow you too!

  2. Those Valentines are seriously the cutest!
