Finally, I am getting so close to getting the things I wanted done for fall. The most important was the dining table, because it's the first thing you see when you walk in our apartment. start of the project
the pumpkins, squash, pine cones, orange candles, place mats are all from Dollar General. I seriously love that place.
I think I finally found a nail kit that I'm going to like. I've been trying different ones, with no luck. start of my search I picked up this kit from Walmart last night
It was first time doing it, so they didn't turn out perfect. The kit has what a salon would have! I think I found the mother ship. Walmart has a brand "Kiss" but after some online reviews Nailene was the best one.
I have continued to decorate our apartment all warm and cozy.
All I did to make these were print off big letters. Cut them out. Bought the frames at Dollar General all were under $2.00. I already had the background paper. I had some leaf stamps I wanted to incorporate. You can barely see that in the picture, but it looks really good!
I had to wash my comforters, so this weekend I went to the laundromat. First, I get there and I get starred down by everyone there. Second, I forgot my laundry detergent. I packed up my comforters, went home, came back. All the washers were full by the time I came back. I sat there while kids ran around, pushing chairs around, trying to eat my Cheez-its.
Good morning! It is cold and gloomy here again in Iowa. Which effects my mood :'( Last night I made a headboard for the bed. It needed to match the orange chair I added, the most important. I think it turned out really good, considering I want to change the bedspread for fall anyways.

You will need a stapler. "Ultra Steel" from Walmart. It is very scary to use.
All I used was a display board. I had to get two so it would be long enough. The fabric was also from Walmart
Fold the corners!
I really like this super easy, cute, fun way to "spruce" up a room
I made this for the kitchen table to continue my fall decor. I picked up the acorns in my parents' yard, but I need to add more to it. I had this vase at home with fake flowers already in it. And the fall flowers are from Dollar General.
When I got home from work yesterday, I got a wild hair. I decided to move my favorite chair from the living room into the bedroom. It didn't really fit in the living room of our apartment, but it's my favorite piece!
I can't wait to sit, read a book, and take a nap in it this winter
One of the perks to my job, is that we don't have to "dress up." So when I actually wear something that is not sweatpants, it's a miracle! Also, I have to stand on my tip toes to take a picture in the mirror...
I had such a fun weekend with a handful of my girlfriends. We made the 2 hour drive to Iowa City to watch the Hawkeyes vs Cyclones! I have lived in both Cedar Rapids and Ames, therefore, I root for both. As long as it's a good game. I did not stop laughing the entire time I was there. Yes, that is my tailgating shirt "I'm just there for the party" I just cut a Goodwill t shirt up and painted on it.
I got the pleasure to spend time with my best friend who lives too far away from me now :( We got to cuddle and pee our pants with each other. <3
It is that time of the year for college football, so I decided to make some Iowa Hawkeye/ISU bracelets. I'm going to try and sell some at the market! I haven't made bracelets like this since high school.
This weekend I helped my boyfriend's mom with her garage sale. It was a lot of fun, she even let me take home whatever I wanted. FREE CLOTHES! It was such a nice day out, and by that, I mean it wasn't hot. I am so over summer. I knew it was going to be the only day I put make up on. Pay no attention to the weird pose.
