I'm almost there!

Only two more days until I take my BIG test! I am taking a quick study break right now, and I am going to push on the rest of the night. Tomorrow is my "relax" day. I'm not going to study because what I don't know now, I won't know on Wednesday. After the test, I am going to Texas with my mom and Susan to a big antique show! I hope to find some things to put in our new home someday. I love taking old pieces of furniture and making them new again. They have some much more character and are more full of life than most furniture that is being made today. Each piece has a story behind it.....and I LOVE that! My friend's say I am an old soul at heart, and I am starting to believe them day by day! Ha! These are a few pictures of some pieces in our apartment right now that are old, and full of character! 
This is an old planter that I am using as a side table next to my chair. I plan on painting it someday.

I found this lamp at an antique mall in Searcy for only $5.00! The color blends really well with all of my colors, and I plan on doing something with the shade. It needs some kind of embellishment. It's just to "blah" for me.

This is my headboard made from an old door. I love the weathered look, and I love being able to see that the door handle is even still attached to it!

Oh, and P.S. can i say how READY I am to get out of our hamster-cage apartment!? No, but all kidding aside, it has been good for me and Levi for our first year of marriage. Even though we can't paint the walls, don't have much room, or can't change ANYTHING....we've had fun fixing it up and making it look like our home. We can't wait until we buy a home (with a yard and enough room to put a table in) and fix it up the way we like it! 

Have a blessed day!

Sick of Studying

I have been studying alllllllll day for my National Boards Exam, which i take in T-MINUS 14 DAYS!! In order for me not to lose my sanity, I figured I would use my study break in order to stimulate my brain in a different way! Plus, I haven't blogged in forever. Here is a little recent update to what's been going on besides studying. Trust me though, not much else has been going on!
Yes, we even went to the Clinton Library because we are so serious and sophisticated...

Okay, so maybe "serious" and "sophisticated" were not the right words....


The next few pictures are from the snow storm that came through!

Our "snow-woman" had to lay down because the snow was too soft to pack. She was sunbathing!

This is what I am usually found projects. :(
Hey, at least we look cute doing them!

And then last but not least, I got to celebrate my old roomie's engagement! Woo hoo! Congrats Casey Jo!
I love my dental hygiene girls!

I can't promise that I will post before March 23rd, but I will try my best! Hey! I have a good excuse! 

Have a blessed day!
