A bedroom inside a bedroom

Yesterday we ventured over to ABC home furniture store now its literally around the corner from my moms house but ive only been there once.
We had some time to kill so i said lets go check it out so i can show you guys what the title means lol.
I saw this last time i was there its like a bedroom that goes in your bedroom.
Its has to tables built into it and you step into it to get to the bed part.
Its quite frankly the coolest thing ive ever seen if this came in more of a vintage victorian look or pretty much anything but this middle eastern Asian theme going on i would snatch one up when i got the money.
I'm not really a fan of that style of home decor

and here is some more stuff i really liked
who doesnt want some orange shag carpet
I love love this makeup table i accidentally caught the lady behind me in the pic lol


This is my favorite piece in the whole store i would love my whole house to have this theme going on i love it!
Now i love this store but theres nothing under a grand furniture wise in there so i won't be shopping there anytime soon but if you wanna check it out heres the web site.
www.abchome.com You can shop online as well.

After that we drove around some cute towns and while stopped at a light i saw this house to the right and snapped a pic I really liked it ,it would make a great starter home lol.
Ive always wanted a huge wrap around porch this one has a half one.

Everything


I can be an asshole of the grandest kind
I can withhold like it's going out of style
I can be the moodiest baby and you've never met anyone
Who is as negative as I am sometimes

I am the wisest woman you've ever met.
I am the kindest soul with whom you've connected.
I have the bravest heart that you've ever seen
And you've never met anyone
Who's as positive as I am sometimes.

You see everything, you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here

I blame everyone else, not my own partaking
My passive-aggressiveness can be devastating
I'm terrified and mistrusting
And you've never met anyone as,
As closed down as I am sometimes.

You see everything, you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here

What I resist, persists, and speaks louder than I know
What I resist, you love, no matter how low or high I go

I'm the funniest woman that you've ever known
I'm the dullest woman that you've ever known
I'm the most gorgeous woman that you've ever known
And you've never met anyone
Who is as everything as I am sometimes

You see everything (you see everything), you see every part (you see every part )
You see all my light (you see all my light) and you love my dark (and you love my dark )
You dig everything (you dig everything) of which I'm ashamed (of which I'm ashamed)
There's not anything (there's not anything) to which you can't relate (to which you can't relate)
And you're still here

(You see everything, you see every part)
And you're still here
(You see all my light and you love my dark)
And you're still here
(You dig everything of which I'm ashamed)
(There's not anything to which you can't relate)
And you're still here...

Dr. Spencer Reid and Macaron Dreams





I used to watch the show criminal minds like it was my job lol.
Ive always been really interested in criminal psychology and serial killers so when this show came out i was really into and it also introduced me to a face i had actually seen before but didn't click right away . Matthew Gray Gubler aka on the show Dr. Spencer Reid the only real psychologist on the show . His character is this amazing smart genius the typical dorky guy ,i love the wardrobe they put on him you striped socks cardigans loafers converse thick black glasses I'm in love .
I wouldn't normally go for someone like this but his character just really attracts me and lets face it hes hot . Now heres where i saw him before he was actually a male model and my aunt worked for tommy hilfigure where he was modeling at the time . He's actually really smart off screen as well he went to the tish school of arts for film directing he has some really funny videos on youtube just search his name. Also heres a fun fact the song Mr. Brightside is rumored to be written about him since he stole the singers g/f lol.

Okay enough dork loving i had a dream last night i made macarons .
Ive only tried once before i managed to get the cake/cookie part right which is said to be the hard part but screwed up the filling . So i decided I'm going to give it a go again saturday for my birthday on sunday . I wanna hear your ideas for flavors ???
If i succeed ill do a tutorial and recipe

Martha Stewart Cupcake 1st entry

Okay so the pics are a day late i hope thats okay I lost my cord to connect my camera i was freaking out last night trying to find it lol.
This months was zucchini spice cupcakes i didn't know if part of the rules were to try them but i did ewww lol Its not that i made them badly but i hate zucchini and in a cupcake its rather stranger.
I used a simple glaze as opposed to frosting just cause i feel frosting would have been to much. I also made jumbo ones instead of regular sized.
You can barely even see the zucchini inside it which was my idea for tricking myself into liking it lol.
I peeled them then food processed them into mush i figured if i cant see it maybe ill like it lol what can i say I'm a weirdo. I even prettied up this big guy with a little ribbon.
I can't wait till next months pumpkin cupcakes
check out the official blog for the club .

I also sprinkled it with cinnamon on top which actually made it not so bad

Tshirt Desgin Contest!!

I'm going to have some tshirts made to sell and giveaway im thinking having a contest for an awesome tshirt design would anybody be interested or think i should do it let me hear your thoughts.
