Easter Fun

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Although it was rainy all day here, we still had a really good time. I made lemon cookies (that kinda got over done) and then me and my sister were trying to figure out how to toast coconut and it ended up starting a fire and almost burning down my moms kitchen! haha. But we got it all put out and nothing got ruined, thank God! Then Chase and I went to his parents for lunch and then to my grand parents for desert and an indoor easter egg hunt for the little ones.

Awkward picture, but on my defense, I was standing in the freezing cold rain right here.
This is my dress I thrifted last week.

I'm so proud of my sister. She has never really sewed, but she recently started and has made tons of amazing stuff!
This is her dress she made from scratch. Isn't it lovely?

Favorite Listnings

Here's a few of my current favorite musical artists (in no particular order).
I've liked Vampire Weekend for quite sometime now. My sister and friend Kasandra got me in to them and now I'm stuck. I can't think of even one song I don't love of theirs.
Band of Horses is definitely my relaxing band haha! And I love their new CD
Progress In Color is going to be on my list for a long time! They are finally coming out with a full length CD hopefully this year. All their songs are so dang good! Seriously. Check them out!
I wasn't so sure about The Decemberists at first, but they've definitely grown on me <3
I've been in love with As Cities Burn since I heard their very first CD 6 years ago. They are just one of those bands that I can't let go of.

I seriously have hundreds of artists I love listening to, but there's just some of my favorites. I advise you to check out them all! haha

Home Is Where The Heart Is

I think I'm about ready to move... Not that I don't like where I live, I love Colorado and I can't imagine how hard it will be to be away from my mountains, but I've lived in the same place my entire life and I really feel like Chase and I need experience things on our own for a bit. Plus I've never lived even near a big city so Dallas will be interesting and probably a little overwhelming at first. So this summer we're doing some serious money saving. I am so excited to have our own place and actually have all our stuff in one place instead of spread out between like 3 places haha! This will be a good experience for us. I'm just really going to try to enjoy my family and friends this summer. It's going to be a good summer :)
(P.S. Also, Dallas has a Whole Foods and Urban Outfitters! Eeeek! So unbelievably happy!)

Sia - Breathe Me

Love this song.


Yardsale Finds

These past few weeks me and my sister have been crazy addictive yardsalers. They are finally starting to pop up more now that it's getting warmer. Here's a few things I've found lately...

This amazing vintage cookie jar I found for 75 cents!

Tie for Chase

And this shirt I got at one of my friends yardsales

Recently Handmade

Here's just a few things I've made as of late:

Skirt I made from some fabric I found (for 25 cents!) at a yardsale

Lampshade I made for my Antique lamp

Rug I was going to give for Christmas, but didn't get it done in time. Instead I decided I liked it and would keep it.

 A little jumper that had some stupid Winnie The Pooh thing on it (don't get me wrong, I live watching Winnie The Pooh, but there's just WAY too much baby stuff with him on it), so I covered it with a pocket for my nephew, but it looked like a dress on him so I embroidered a little heart on it for my niece. ha!

Some decorative pillows for our bed to spruce it up a little. I just used Screen printing paint.
