February in Review!

Saturday, March 03, 2012

 new blogs I found & enjoyed:
I actually only found one new blog in February. I mean I subscribed to a few that I had heard of or maybe even visited before but fell in love with like Orchid Grey. But I was so excited to find Sweet Something this month! What an awesome blog!

new (to me) movies I watched:
Extreme Bodies. The only thing wrong with this documentary series is that there aren't a million more episodes.
Hatchet. This is literally my favorite kind of movie - a group of people getting stranded somewhere and there just happens to be some sort of deformed or mutant killer chasing after them. It was pretty decent and satisfied my need for more of that kind of movie.
Confessions of Sorority Girls.
Red State. Kevin and I watched this one together, it was SO good. I definitely recommend it.

a few of my favorite posts from January:

 exciting happenings on and offline:
• I posted my first vlog! I'm still so excited about all the awesome stuff Elycia and I accomplished during our blog weekend. I can't wait to make more vlogs.
• I bought a really amazing planner (that you can kind of see in this post) and it's been keeping me on track so much better than me just trying to make lists. Seriously, best purchase in a REALLY long time. I plan on blogging about it and how I've been utilizing it soon.
• I became a member of The Delightful Dozen! Wahooo!
• We got rid of our big, boring, brown couch. It was a big decision (and a really tough one! I mean, it was the first big thing we bought together after moving in other than the house itself!) but it was a dang good decision! Our living is amazing now. It feels SO much bigger and looks so much brighter. I'll ramble on about this a little more in another post soon though. ;)

a tiny (and incomplete!!) list of things I'm thankful for this month:
• thrift stores • second hand furniture •  the ridiculously mild winter we've had • days I can pass without wearing a coat • crocuses • bubble baths • my kitties • family woodshop night • my parents • my mom's cooking • sunshine • netflix • pandora • hot chocolate • chocolate milk • the beach • lake erie • living so close to the beach • fizzy bath bombs • quiet days spent reading in the tub • my blog • etsy • my imac • auctions • finding great furniture at even better prices • boylans root beer • root beer in general • strawberry banana smoothies •

  4. i came across your blog ages ago & was really inspired by
    your mushroom hunting posts. i recently moved to australia
    and had no idea where to start. but my friend & i went hunting
    the other day & had so much fun! we mainly found slippery jacks
    & toadstools. our goals were to find some pine mushrooms & your
    beloved earth star and lo & behold we found them too !! we even
    cooked up some of our finds & they were so delicious!

    i hope we can go hunting soon & i can bring my camera cos they're
    so pretty! thank you for your inspiration!!

  5. Ryan and I went to Red State in the theater here, it was playing one night only, and there was only us and like four other people there! Nobody else had heard of it. We got free t-shirts and posters too, and there was a whole intro by Kevin Smith. I LOVED that movie, it was so cool! I don't wear the shirt ever because it's just black with red lettering that says "There's babies in the attic" which I assume will make everybody think I'm pregnant, LOL!

  6. I really love when you do the nail tutorials, they are always so much fun!
