#26: join a book club for at least three months

This was a completely unintentional that I could accomplish #26 on my list! My co-worker, Heather, mentioned she was in a book club with some of her old college friends and invited me to come along last night. I was reluctant because I don't really like reading. She mentioned that it was more of an excuse to get some ladies together and just hang out. Turns out, one of the girls lives only 1/2 mile away from me and most of them are located south of the river! I'm always up for meeting new people in my neck of the woods.

Anyways, I had such a great time! It was so nice to be around a new group of people who were so open to chatting, eating and drinking wine. Needless to say, I had my fair share of wine....good thing Heather drove me home. We have our book chosen, "The Hunger Games." I cannot make any promises that I will complete the book, especially with all the new fall shows on TV! But I'll try my best.

Not sure if this is accurate, but I liked the image.


DIY: Coasters

If you know me at all, you know my love for coasters. I found this tutorial on pinterest on how to make cheap coasters and I was ecstatic to discover how easy it was! I mentioned to my co-worker (Heather) my plans and she asked if I could make her a couple for her master bedroom. Challenge accepted!

I added more layers of mod podge on the coasters...probably about five. Since Mod Podge can be expensive, I found another tutorial on pinterest on how to make your own cheaper version. Can you tell I am obsessed with this website yet??

They turned out so great! Also, please be prepared to receive these as a gift from me for Christmas. After all, this was made with love....and an empty wallet. :)


buffy vs brianna

When you were growing up, did anyone ever tell you that you looked like a celebrity? Which one? I was one of those awkward looking girls growing up and never heard that I looked like anyone. Don't worry, I wasn't scarred by it too much. However, when you grow up with a sibling who everyone thinks looks like Buffy (Sarah Michelle Geller) it can be a challenge.

Well people - Sarah Michelle Geller is back! I was watching her new show called Ringer last night and it was actually really great! 

Don't you think my sister Brianna looks like old school Sarah Michelle Geller??


must hear

While reading my daily perez, I came across this video. This guy is absolutely AMAZING!! I have a feeling we will be hearing a lot more from him.

obsession: pinterest

Many of you may have realized my recent obsession. Pinterest. To summarize, it is a site that lets you organize and share images you find on the web. Most people use it to gain inspiration while planning their weddings, decorating their homes and many other things! I am serious when I say I'm obsessed with it. It is just as bad as my facebook addiction.  You can check out my pinterest site and join yourself!
