DIY Doormat!!

While over at A Soft Place to Land, I ran across this fun DIY Doormat idea and I thought I would try making one for myself! :) It was a very afforable project. The only things I had to buy where:

*Outdoor Spaces Krylon spraypaint, using the color "Earth"
*Painters Tape
*Rug, I got mine for $4 bucks at IKEA! :) 

 Here is the final product! I love the way it looks! Couldn't have been happier with the turnout! :)

My Happy List...

Makes me happy that I got this iphone case in the mail yesterday! I won it in a giveway over at Pluff Mudd Studios compliments of The Pink Monogram! I couldn't be more happy about how it turned out! :)

I am happy that I picked up the cutest little trinket dish from one of my fav shops Two Sisters Boutique! :) The saying is so true, isn't it?!

Also happy I ran across this cute idea while visiting Tilly Maison!!. All you need is craft paper and paint!

Friday Confessional...

I confess:

That I was once viciously attacked by a bird, mockingbird to be exact. Okay, maybe I am exaggerating a tad about the vicious part, but I was definitely getting pecked repeatedly. It was about 4 days before my wedding. I was at a busy crosswalk waiting for the light to turn. Apparently, I was WAY to close to the mockingbirds nest (which she put right on top of the walk/don't walk sign) The momma bird started pecking me over and over again. She wouldn't stop!! I had some wrapping paper in my hand that I had just bought, so I was trying to use it to help defend myself. People in cars were pointing and laughing. Yes. Maybe it's a bit hilarious to look back on, but at the time, I was trying to get this crazy bird away from me. Come to find out, I was just one of many people that had experienced this rabid bird attack, LOL.

and that's all for today, LOL....sorry!

Friday Confessional...

I confess:
Sometimes I make very large grocery trips (when I feel like only going to the grocery store like once in a month) If I for some reason end up having to use 2 carts, which I HATE, I will make the bagger either walk way ahead of me or way behind me, and I tell them to act like they are not helping me. I have issues, I know.

I confess:
When Scott and I were on our honeymoon CRUISE, there was a musical trio that played every night at dinner. I requested the Celine Dion "Titanic" song, was that in poor taste?

I confess:
I am still having issues with my eyebrows! I usually manage to make them uneven, but now I feel like I have a bald spot in the center of my left eyebrow, not too noticeable (well, to me it is) and it is bugging the heck out of me!!!

I confess:
I always used to feel like I was the unluckiest person ever!! But after winning a laptop and a 100 gift card at work today, I think my luck is changing for the better!! I also have been having good luck with these blog giveaways!! Keep 'em coming!!

I confess:
I can't stand public restrooms. I will grab a paper towel to touch any doors/handles. I will try to avoid any kind of skin contact with anything and everything if at all possible. My elbow is an exception to this rule, I will use that if need be.

I confess:
I hate leggings. It's not fair for girls that have junk in the trunk. I can't wear leggings, without being crazy self conscious. Just wanted to share my feelings.
