About Me

My photo
I'm not a hippie, but i don't like polluting the earth I love the study of ergonomics. And biology. And sociology. I hate politics. I truly have an amazing husband. He spoils me without me asking. He doesn't even give me a chance to forget how amazing he is. I have baggage. I'm not ashamed of it. I love coffee. French Market Coffee. I change everyday

People I admire....

Sharon Osbourne

After Lollapalooza told Ozzy that he wasn't cool enough and too drugged up to play there, Sharon flipped them the finger by setting up her own damn concert tour, Ozzfest. She's a backbone behind her husband, and she "don't take no shit." And she's admiringly graceful in the process. Plus, she's married to Ozzy, and that looks to be sort of an eccentric position to hold down in and of itself....so kudos to Sharon for always being strong, graceful sweet, and enduring. She always has something nice to say, and always stands her ground.

will add more later!

Natalie Portman

There's nothing this woman can't do! A Bachelor's in Psychology from Harvard while filming Star Wars; speaks Hebrew, and also studied Japanese, German, French, and Spanish; um...Star Wars!; social activist; picture of health; never vain and always beautiful; soft-spoken and very intelligent beyond her years. You just can't not love her!

My plans for our house...

LIst format! yay. will post "before" photos soon.

Dining room=banquet seating

living room=big sectional w/ chaise lounge-charcoal grey, structured, squared off, but still very soft and comfy. 
         Mount tv over mantle. 
        use wall where tv is now for family photos and to showcase some of my blue glass.

speaking of walls, i thought that it would be so awesome to showcase some of my favorite family photos in an eye level line all the way around the house in some little 2"X2" frames, chronologically from front door

crown moulding

 white, black, grey color scheme w/ blue accents.
     -paint cabinets white
     -corrugated metal backsplash
     -black granite countertops
     -inside of cabinets and pantry electric blue
     -blue pendant lights over island
     -replace stove

our bathroom

-build all tile steam shower for michael
-claw foot tub for me
-closet revamp-cubbies, heel racks, the works!

-build front patio- slate floor, cover with pergola painted to match trim
-build pergola around east side of the house to accommodate a brick path, with vines covering all of it. 
-continue that pergola to extend the back patio and a brick pathway leading to stand alone pergola 
-upgrade stand alone pergola by painting it white, putting a double chaise lounge underneath it, covering it with wisteria, putting some more shrubbery around it. 

yep, our house is gonna be really awesome in about...7 years or so!

Starting a blog

I've always wanted to start a blog, but I always figured that I'd have to do it like everyone else does...consistently. Being consistent is a forced thing for my personality. I could lie and say that I'm consistent because I just am that way, but ti's really not true. I have to try every moment of the day to maintain some sort of pattern for the sake of my own sanity, not to mention everyone else's!
So this blog will become one of those things that really goes the way I want it to. It will never be finished, and that's okay. I can come back to it when I want to, and not come back to it when I don't have the time. And right now I don't have time, so I'll come back to it later..
