So on board with the no shoes in the house thing - now since I'm the one shampooing my own carpets, it TOTALLY sucks, and I have to yell at my husband to be to tell him not to wear his shoes in the house either.


6 Dumb Household Rules You Hated Growing Up, but Now Totally Understand

I totally bring my lunch to work. For me, prep is the key (if I don't prepare something, I am definitely more likely to run out and try to grab something), and I have made a lot of use of the mason jars I've collected for my wedding. I feel them with smoothies, salads, and everything else you can think of and it keeps my lunch fresh and tasty! I also totally am over the sandwich thing, and I hate processed bread, so it's forced me to get really really creative with my meals!

I'm not too much of a carnation gal - but I DO like their price. I LOVE the look of the peony, or the big fat look of the garden rose!

I discovered blackout curtains a few weeks ago at a hotel! Why have I ever known about them before?! I'm afraid they might confuse the cats though - we will see how they do with them.

I've also been finding that buying a TON of fruit that's in season will save you tons of money because it's already cheap, and then it gives you a chance to get really creative with the produce. I did it with mangos a few weeks ago, and now since strawberries are in season, I've been getting creative and doing everything I can possibly think of to make strawberry themed foods at the house!

The serious stench I live near is the stench of POT from my downstairs neighbors. It's gross, it's disgusting, and if they're not sharing, I don't like it. We're just gonna make it work until our lease is up in the fall.

So, as far as my iPhone is concerned, I HATE hate HATE getting on someone else's phone, and they have no folders or organization for all of their apps that they've downloaded. I actually went to the Apple store, and had to get my phone replaced yesterday, and I spent like an hour redownloading all of my apps and organizing into their folders and the spots that I like them in :)

Yes. Sometimes my dumb dog (kidding!) will force a conversation by running past me and running up to someone else's dog and then I have to talk about the differences in their breeds and it's so awkward. I'm so awkward!

I'd stain it, and maybe cover the top with glass. But don't overdo it with paint, that table is WAY too pretty to cover up :)
