Artistic Licence?


“Your contagious energy set you apart from the rest. Your experience will help, too. Plus, Fabio has a great eye and would not have recommended you unless there was something special there. So yes, you are art@IIT’s Gallery Coordinator, congrats! We have a really full and exciting year planned.” – Mindy

Mind you at orientation I only met Fabio briefly and Mindy only in passing. Not only am I excited to go back to school and finish my education, but to put my past photography love and my new organizing love together in one job! WOW! Art Gallery Coordinator sounds so official, sounds like fun!

Painting Our New Place


So right now this is what our new place looks like, bright orange and matching nothing that we have.
So I’ve been trying to come up with a color that both Husband and I will enjoy that is not white. Here is what I came up with….

The blue is my decor I already have and a curtain, the black is our furniture, the tan is stairways and the green is going to be the main color with stripes of a lighter green.

Now what about this second bedroom, what are we going to do with it?!? The brown, as I recall, isn’t too bad, but it brings the feel of the room way down and not as happy.

Let me know what you think and once we get moved and paint it, I’ll send a real picture of our new place in CHICAGO!

If you would like our new address and don’t have it, that probably means we don’t have your email address. Let me know what it is and we’ll email you our new mailing address.

Memory Tag…


Step 1: As a comment on my blog, leave a memory that you and I had together. It doesn’t matter if you knew/know me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

Step 2: Re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory for you. It’s actually pretty fun to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I’ll assume you’re playing the game and I’ll come to your blog and leave one for you. If you don’t want to play on your blog, or if you don’t have a blog, I’ll leave my memory of you in my comments!

Colorado House is SOLD!!!



That’s all I really can say about that. I bought a house in Colorado Springs about 3.5 years ago and it’s been for sale for a year and five months and we’re finally selling it, our first offer! What a financial burden off our shoulders, we can’t explain how happy we are about this. Okay, so we close on August 4th, but I’m feeling smooth sailing until closing. (It’s a little sad that the only picture I have of the house is from Halloween.)
