Pinterest Wednesday

I have been dreaming of a new pantry. I wake up in the morning and peep one eye open, looking around, thinking maybe, just maybe, it has come true. When I walk down the steps there will be a new pantry waiting for me.

Nope. Just my tiny, disorganized, awkward shelf closet that calls itself a pantry. One day I will have it, and it will have glass containers that are labeled, contain only healthy whole foods and no ugly packaging (ha, ha!).

Dream with me people!

Side note, is it just me, or does the last pin look like a party house?? I think it is a pantry only filled with goodies!

Pinterest Wednesday

One of my favorite past times is looking at houses. I could do it every day. Literally. So along with looking at houses for sale in our area I also love cruising Pinterest for ideas for that dream home some day.

Check out the awesome houses I found and drool a little over how amazing they are! What does your dream home have?

Pinterest Wednesday

What is the next holiday I can’t wait for? Valentines Day! I love love love it! I think I may even decorate a bit this year… Maybe. It is a great romantic holiday, but probably my favorite part is making a gift basket for my little sisters – which I do every year. Here’s to getting your creative V-Day on!

Pinterest Wednesday

It is that time of the week: Pinterest Wednesday! In honor of the New Year I am trying to get organized (ha!). I am always finding ideas for gifts, crafts, or recipes but I am soooo unorganized that I either forget about them or can’t find them. Pinterest is a great resource for grouping all of your ideas in one place so now the challenge for 2012 is to DO them!

Here are some of my favorite ideas from Pinterest that are totally doable – I just need to do them! I plan to work on these over the next few weeks so stay tuned for the results!

I am linking up with Michelle at The Vintage Apple for Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday – stop by for some other great pins! Drop a comment and tell me what you are working on now!

Versatile Blogger Award

First, thank you thank you to Ashley at Lifevesting for nominating LeahMarieV for this award! Oh Happy Monday, definitely put a smile on my face!

The rules for the Versatile Blogger award:

  • Nominate 15 fellow bloggers.
  • Inform the bloggers of their nomination.
  • Share 7 random things about yourself.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Add the Versatile Blog Award logo on your blog post.

So… 7 random things about me? Here goes!

1) I have a problem throwing magazines away. I purge everything, but magazines? No sir, can’t part with them. I try. I organize in to keep and throw piles… and then I can’t do it!

2) I shop online a lot. I fill up my cart with wonderful goodies that I don’t need and then I leave them there. Just the shopping makes me happy – I rarely buy. (but I always begin the extravaganza thinking I will buy!)

3) I am too afraid to ride my husband’s motorcycle. I was on it once just down the street and I can’t get back on.

4) I love olives of every kind. Stuffed with cheese. Spiced up with garlic and oregano. Kalamata. I could eat an entire jar. Every day.

5) I talk to my dog like she is a person 90% of the time. I ask her questions and tell her my thoughts. I am happy she doesn’t respond.

6) I will make an extra trip up or down the steps to make sure the light switches are facing the same direction. Drives me nuts when some are up and others are down!

7) I only use natural cleaning products in my home, including laundry detergent.  I am not sure when this started, I just noticed that one day that is all I had in the house. Seems like a good habit!
