Okay okay I know everyone and their mom is tweeting about these and probably blogging, but with only minutes before the recap, and mere hourse before the SERIES finale, I would just like to say good bye to Lost.

You have been good to me, and I don't think you will disappoint me now.

Will update after to gush about its awesomeness, because I have no theories or expectations, so it's all up from here baby!

PS. Since I'm such a geek I may or may not listen to the Podcast "The Lost Podcast with Jay and Jack". If you like this show, I recommend listening to them. Gets out all those urges to talk your friends ears off about the show.

UPDATE: okay, I know lots of people loved the ending, but I don't know, it just didn't blow my mind or anything. I think I just wanted one twist or something unexpected. I mean that's why I loved Lost because I never can predict things, and so their twists literally blew my mind.

And I anticpated pretty much everything this episode. I guess it was nice having a good ending, though I'm not even sure I understood it??

Call me a Debbie Downer, but I guess I just appreciate a more bittersweet-meaningful ending like in Gone With the Wind or something, than one that ends perfectly. To me the finale just didn't mesh up with the rest of the show.

Jimmy Kimmel Live afterwards was good though? Does that make me sound more enthusiastic??

Kitchen anyone??

So I may not have my own kitchen, but I sure would like one of these:

{All pictures from Cote de Texas. Post can be found here. Please go see her site and drool over the pictures in all their glory, with a bunch of others that I didn't include in my personal favorites.}

These kitchens make my heart go pitter-patter.


Her sink!! I think sinks tend to get underrated in kitchens. When they are really more important than lots of other things. I mean sinks get used multiple times a day! (Sometimes all day if you have dishes "soaking" in it)

[I may or may not have choked on my own spit when swallowing when I saw this after.]





These cabinets!!! I die for open cabinetry. Especially with white dishes. 


Can I go live in a french stone cottage? please?? 


Those walls! Those floors! Who needs hardwood floors (Which you have to be careful about getting wet... in a kitchen... with sinks.....) when you can have that?!?


Crystal chandelier in my kitchen? Yes please! Especially if I had that antique holding my dishes.

Dude this trough sink. I may faint from the amazingness of it.


After watching so many House Hunters and witnessing decoration catastrophes (I mean there is good taste, no taste, and terrible terrible taste), it is heartening to see such wonderful designs in our own country. 

PS. One of the great things about blogging is that it allows me to put up links and pictures of stuff that I want for future reference, without actually having to file it away. Score!!!

PS. PS. I may or may not have had this written and posted less than an hour after it was posted on Cote de Texas's blog. Yay me?

Soo I'm kinda obsessed with white.

It's boring, blah, blah blah. Nope, it's clean and classic. And matches easily with other white things. I mean, wood stains are hard to match.

So I got a white vanity, and am painting a few other things in my room white. by myself. Yes, yes, I am quite handy. Wait, I shouldn't claim that until it works out I suppose.

But since I had white paint, I decided that this little knick-knack that I put my earrings on would look cute white.

It's still drying, but looks like this.

Should I be concerned that I didn't check that it goes on metal objects and not just wood?


PS. Sorry for the terrible pictures, but it's just so easy to use the camera on my computer, and pose it around the room as I sit on the floor blogging.

This is the night stand I got off craigslist for $25!!!

I never usually find good deals. So I gave myself a little pat on the back.

Please don't be concerned that everything in my room is different colors (The nightstand is blue if you can't really see) and that I am wooing a pink chair off of craigslist. It'll all work out... I think.

Call me vain...

Sooo I got a new vanity last night! (Thanks to craigslist my sister and I went on an adventure an hour away at ten o'clock at night. Thankfully the couple selling it weren't creepy!)

Yes, that would be a blanket on top of the bench. Unfortunately the top is upholstered in a hideous red with plastic. Yuck!! So I have to get that fixed when I am free from school (Hello, monday night!) and paint a few old things white.

Basically I love my vanity because it is much more my style than my other furniture. Aka moving boxes that are acting as my night stands three months later.... and because I don't have to sit on the ground anymore to put my makeup on! yay!!

PS. I also love my mac because it allows for the utmost laziness in getting pictures for posts. As in, I didn't have to use a camera and then upload pictures. Love you Photobooth!

If the man brings home the bacon,

then the woman brings home the .... banana plant??

Yes my mother was a puddle of giggles when she was showing us the banana plant she bought.

I guess when she first saw it she asked about leaves being on the plant, but really, who needs 'em? Maybe I'm just jealous because it looks like I won't have garden at the new house... at least not this year.

Which is really too bad, I was such a superstar at getting things to grow.  Well at least I tried to sound like I was before I revealed to you all just how awesome I really was.
