A week ago, Katie and I went to some garage sales. I found a great mirror I'll maybe blog about later...

We also found this little store in Highland/Alpine (I have a hard time distinguishing where one city begins and the other ends.)

Dear Lizzie is a cute boutique but really expensive.

I loved this lamp, but not $300 worth.

I will totally do this when I have my own house but buy them from D.I. for a fraction of the cost.

 I loved this picture

 and these shoes were really interesting weird, but really plushy and soft

Before I left the MTC I got this picture frame. They were getting rid of a bunch of old artwork so I scored some sweet frames.

This was way back in November.

At the beginning of February I finally got around to sanding this thing and then it sat around for months.

The weather was finally warm enough this weekend for me to stain it.

so I got to work putting the stain on

 and then wiping it off

When it was finally dry I had to measure out the matting

and viola!
yes I'm a creeper...

I'm quite proud. It was a solid first attempt.

What does someone who has graduated college, only has a job, and no family or kids, do on a typical weekday night?

Yep, exactly that...only less cute.

Putting down the hammer...we may have gotten into The Avengers a little too much...

I also randomly decided I need a print of Starry Night by Van Gogh in my room

A slurpee is required for late night picture hanging sessions.
Also please notice me actually using one of the 11 green vases I own. 

Last but not least...I finally framed my print of the Dallas Temple

I have accumulated so much stuff

I'm quite proud of this purchase
