i had a paper due today and a midterm tomorrow so for right now this is all you get.

a girl in amc’s office made these… this may just be my weekend project.  they look so much like these from kate spade.  i really want to know how she did the bow.  since i am still on the crutches (ie torture devices) i am unsure as to if i am going to be able to rock heals this holiday season.  these would go with my planned outfits AS WELL AS this dress i got at target over the weekendlisa hated the dress and did not want me to get it.  i got it in a medium because that is all they had at the target i was at.  Later i saw it at another in a large and may go exchange it.

back to studying precalc (YUCK) maybe i should have done my homework for the past two months… and then there is that take home in my special ed class, and my geometry final which i have also neglected the past few months… EEK.

on normal days i give you a splash of happy.  due to my lack of recent posts today i am giving you a tidal wave.


i have so much to share with you today.  first off august 6 officials ends summer session!  this means that my 9 (gaah) graduate hours will be OVER and i can go back to a semi normal life.  whose idiot idea was it to talk 9 graduate hours over the summer??  oh yes mine.

i have one more paper to finish typing up and an exam to take and then its OVER!!

i will then put all my effort in to figuring out community collage (have to take 6 hours) and CLEP exams before fall semester starts.


i just got off the phone with my BFF WJK.  she is getting married next october and i am one of her brides maids.  we have been friends since 6th grade and been through so much.  my obsessive type A personality  (excludes spelling and grammar) has reared its ugly head in helping her plan her wedding.  (she has NOT asked for my help) we are exact opposites and i believe this is why our friendship works.  i have taken it upon myself to send her countless wedding websites and today during our discussion she mentioned that she wants to create her own invitations.  this was just the info i did not need.  i have since jumped in to planning overdrive and sent her countless websites i have been hording in the event that i ever have a wedding.  (more likely be used to celebrate to adoption of my dog next summer… can you register for an event like that?)  anyway if anyone has an websites they think WJK could use please pass them along!


AJH is coming TODAY!!!!  i am super pumped for multiple reasons that today is thursday.

atop that list is AJH and jenni

second: Jersey Shore with Mr. Match, and thai take out!

third: RHWDC

fourth: Betthany finaly (this is last bc i am sad its over)

Splash #4

this morning i organized my room and packed up two garbage bags of old clothes for catholic charities.  i have been on a buying spree at target lately and have jazzed up those AWFUL wire cubes lisa and i got at bed bath and beyond with cute cloth buckets in cream and brown.  the wire cubes are totally temporary and make me cringe every time i look at them.  the cream and brown match my bedding that is currently chilling in my storage unit or SU as mr. match calls it.  he has one too.  one of the many perks of moving back in with M&D.

Splash #5

i am getting better at photo shop!! i made really cute packing slips for my large bins last night.  type a again: i like to write out the order of everything that goes in to my 7o quart opaque tubs so that when i am searching (in a pannic) for that black j.crew turtle neck i can easily see which bin it is in and how far down.

and i place these on top and secure with clear tape:

easily able to see exactly where everything is!

splash #6

after babysitting i am going to trader joe’s and borders to get the the girl who played with fire!!! then i am running my 5 miles and baking cookies!

have a great thursday!

its been a few weeks since i did a target tuesday post, sorry for slacking.  it has not been for a lack of good things just a lack of time in my life.

for my target shopping cart this week i got prepared for my 10 day trip!  i will be spending 3 or 4 days in chicago before heading out to magician lake in michigan.

this weeks finds/obsessions:
Neutrogena Age Shield Repair SPF 55.  I am so picky about what goes on my face (year and years of acne will do that) and i have found that this sunscreen is perfect.  It is light and non-greasy.  I also love the claim that it will help reverse damage.

Mossimo® Black Women’s Interlocking Bandeau Bikini Top.  i have never owned a black swimsuit and think that it the perfect mix and match to go along with all the colors i have already.  while i am totally partial to the j.crew suits i love mixing in the target tops (the fit better then the bottoms) with the j.crew bottoms.

i also stocked up on magazines and rectangular sunscreen (spf 55!).  and the new iced via from starbucks.  i have not had it yet but cannot wait to try it!

right now all i want to do is move back into my old room in charlotte with my massive closet and organize my life.  I also DESPERATELY want a home office.  just a place to do my school work and relax.

to dream (while listening to my online lectures BORE) i perused a few sites:

From Pottery Barn

(image from

what i love about this is the great use of wall space.  It has space for an idea board, keeping magazines, and school books off the desk but in eye sight.  I hate having to put things in drawers as they out of sight, thus out of mind.


while there are a bunch of things i do not like about this space the key features that i LOVE are the double desk, his and hers?, the file drawer  and the expanse of desk space.  I would love to combine this with the wall space usage in the first picture.  The file drawers would be great for filling documents, if using as a his and hers, or keeping business files in a home office situation.  The third think i love about this the option to have one space be a home office and the second be the household office.

if you are thinking that you love these desks head over to pottery barn and use the bedford desk builder to build your own

From Crate and Barrel

(immage from

i love the clean lines of this desk/bookshelf combo.  the desks a crate and barrel are much simpler than at pottery barn.  this would be perfect for my little macbook and school work.


i love the hide away factor of this desk.  it also comes with a built in idea board!  this would be great for transiting from school work to other hobbies as you can just shut the computer away and have drawing/design space!

this is by far my favorite desk from target.  i love the hutch.  it makes the desk.  i would use the cut out in the hutch to put my idea board.  it would be perfect for a large wall space.

from target

if you have not notices i really like white for office furniture.  sometimes white can look very cheep but i think it keeps the office bright and goes well with pops of color.  I would ancent mine with color all around.


i love this desk, it reminds me of the ones on pottery barn.  i love the storage options.

from IKEA

(image from
i feel the only reason to by from ikea is if you do not plan on keeping something for more than 2 years, or if your going to beat the shit out of it.  the stuff is cheep and so is the quality.  this desk says with the large desk space with a bit of storage to keep thinks hidden.  at just under $90 you would be better off saving a bit longer and going to something of quality.

i just did a BAD thing.  i went to target and basically bought whatever my little heart desired.  OOPS.
then i went to the teachers store and bought some more… at least all those things are useful.

i originally went because told me that the shirt i have been lusting after (first discussed here) was in stock.  it was not and i got this top instead.

it’s a larger and i deff need a medium but oh well.   i also picked up LA Candy and Sex in the City movie (both under $10) and a few little gifts for my friend HP whose birthday is on SATURDAY!  i will post about this again as she has quit facebook so there will not a lot of reminders!
