I can't stop listening to Johnny Cash. It has been a few months of this obsession.

I love his cover of "Personal Jesus".


I can't believe another month has gone by. 
This year is going by way too fast. 
(Now if only my unpacking process would do the same.)

Here are my January new years resolutions:
1. Read more books. Now that I am out of school I can read the books that I never had time for. My goal is two a month.
2. Get outside more. Simple enough I just need to do it.
3. Eat healthier. More veggies. Less soda and junk. 
4. Get active again. I need to find a fun way to stay in shape that wont drive me crazy. 
5. Spend less money on small things. Spend more money on big things. (like trips!)

Here is my April progress report:
1. I read one, but its a long one! So it should count as two. 
2. Its cold and rainy! I got out on the sunny days. 
3. I have been eating waaay less junk, soda is a whole different topic. Luckily Trader Joe's is only 2 blocks away from me now!
4. I have been out walking around way more. There are so many fun things to walk to in my new neighborhood. I love it.
5. I still need to save up for a camera, but moving is expensive. Yikes.

Please ignore my excuses  for not getting some of these done :) 
Is it summer yet? As much as I love this scarf I am getting tired of needing to wear it.

Okay, lets be honest for a little while. I could make excuses I could blame it on the move, but there is no one to blame for only have 5 photos of the day for 13 days. Worst part is that I have no idea what day I took them on. Oh well can only go up from here!

Photo of the day ???
This wall is right outside my office. PERFECT spot for future photoshoots.

Photo of the day ??
I made this photo as big as possible so you could see what awesomeness is just a block from my work. Yup, that is right a PSYCHIC BARBER. A two for one deal! Will someone please go here and let me tag along.

Photo of the day ????
I go to El Chupacabra on Alki so often that I have almost run out of things to take photos of. Here is a groovy lamp. I love the color! Dom and I can be considered "regulars" now. They know exactly what we order when we walk in. 

Photo of the day ???
We finally got all of our stuff moved in and I received a call that there was a vintage formica table two blocks down hill from us. So instead of being intelligent I decided to walk, and luckily I have a trooper of a boyfriend/roomate and he tagged along with me. Once I decided that the table was the love of my life we realized we had to walk it up hill for 2 extremely long blocks. I am glad Dan was there to provide comic relief for this situation otherwise I would have been a cranky mess. At least it wasn't raining!

Photo of the day ??????
Just when you think there are no more photo opportunities at El Chupacabra life gives you one. Please note Dom in the background blocking the wind from popping my bubble.

I was innocently sitting around when I received a text from Daniel that said "Heeeeyyyyy" and this:
He looks crazy but it made my day. So I sent him this:
Thinking that was the end of it I went back to enjoying my day until out of nowhere I received this:
So I attacked back with this:
I need these photos framed on my wall asap.
Watch out because the crazies are on the loose.

Luna Park Cafe.

Today we walked a few blocks down to Luna Park Cafe.
History lesson time: Luna Park use to be a theme park out on the water on Alki so this cafe is based on the old park.

If you are in the area check it out! I'll be going back for a milkshake.


Well we did it.
We have successfully moved. 
We still have to clean out the old place but we just won't count that for now.
I was thrilled when we got the keys!
I had to make sure that the important things were well taken care of.
Nelson didn't let us get in the way of his relaxation.
So much unpacking still left to do! House tour will come eventually.

Everyone has different products that they use 
and I thought that I would share a few of my absolute favorites.

I got my Clarisonic for Christmas and my skin has drastically improved since then.
 I try and use this bad boy most nights before bed. 
I use it with this:
Such a great product to use with our without a Clarisonic. 
The texture is freakishly smooth.

Clinique clarifying lotion is an addiction of mine. 
I use it daily especially in the harsh winter months.
I have tried out so many different facial lotions and nothing has compared to this Kiehl's one. No matter how much I use my face never feels sticky and a little goes a long way. LOVE.
On bad weeks I use this mask from Origins. I always feel so fresh after I use it and my skin clears up really fast after I use it. Out of all of these this is the product that I have used the longest.
Last but not least floss picks. I am such a lazy flosser. I put a bag of these by my shower and floss while I am in the shower. I love hot showers and any excuse to stay in a little longer is fine by me. If you find that you tend to not floss enough you should try flossing in the shower.

What is your favorite product?

Oh Dr. Pepper you are my one weakness.

Ok I lied Modcloth is a weakness too.

That is what my life is packed away in now.
We move on Saturday and I still have far too much to do. 

Moving from Issaquah to West Seattle. I can't wait for this big life change.

Updates will be limited this week.

Lately I have been wanting to buy every awesome clock that I see.
It is just too bad that I don't need any more.
Maybe once I move I can find more spots for clocks!
My brother gave me this one for Christmas and I love it. It is the highlight of my nightstand.
This would be a super cute kitchen clock. I love it.
This one is just fun. All three of these are from Modcloth, and I want them all.
 I especially love this bad boy.(From fredflare)  If I didn't think that it would terrify Nelson (and me) I would get it.

Do you love clocks like I do? Or do you hate them like Captain Hook?

Well after a week of coughing and a weekend of having awful pain in my ribs I finally went to the DR.
Bronchitis and bruised ribs from the coughing.
The doctor has ordered no exercise and plenty of rest for a week.

Sooo... I now declare this week LAZY WEEK.
Here are a few things that my lazy week will include:
TV! In all reality I will be watching it on my computer but this image is so much cuter. I have so many shows to catch up on. 
My FAVORITE blanket that I bought at target a few years ago. So cozy.

Magazines! Marie Claire and InStyle are my favorites!

Kool Aid always makes me feel better (I am currently drinking some right now).
Pictures that are not included in my week of lazy:
Cuddling Nelson
Cuddling Daniel
NOT packing for our move in 13 days
TMI- but no bra this week because it hurts my ribs
Delicious snacks all day long
and most importantly sleep!


Oh silly March why did you have to go by so fast? Let's see how these resolutions are going. Once again here is a refresher:

1. Read more books. Now that I am out of school I can read the books that I never had time for. My goal is two a month.
2. Get outside more. Simple enough I just need to do it.3. Eat healthier. More veggies. Less soda and junk.4. Get active again. I need to find a fun way to stay in shape that wont drive me crazy.5. Spend less money on small things. Spend more money on big things. (like trips!)

How good/horrible did I do?

2. Umm... I don't know about this one.
3. I have been eating way healthier. Yeah girl!
4. I went fishing! Does that count? I was sore for two days after fishing. I have been walking around tons more at work.
5. Boom. Yes I haven't been able to spend money because I have been saving it for our new apartment!
