Up to speed!

I feel like it has been years since I have blogged last, but work, school and weekends jammed packed haven't really left much room for blogging. But I'm back no worries! I have a lot of posts planned for the up coming weeks! Today I wanted to share with you a "Throwback Thursday" by posting an old pic and its explanation:

{This is my Daddy! I think this picture is form Easter, I'm not sure how old I am but It is my favorite picture of my dad and I. With Father's day last weekend and his birthday next week I figured this would be a good picture to share. He is the rock of our family and holds us all together, I learn something new from him everyday and he is one of my best friends}

Me Time!

Today was perfect, I had the whole day off and the house to myself. I went to class this morning took a quick test got 89% and was on with the day. For weeks now I have had such a long list of the crafts I want to accomplish and today I set out and got them finished! Here they are:

Craft Night

Friday night I spent time doing crafts with my dear friend Nichole, we had a plan but then once we got down to business and started making things we both just ended up doing our own things, she made a wedding present, while I made cards, she made a gift tag while I made my redneck wine glass. Which is what I am going to share with you. A redneck wine glass is basically a decorated mason jar, glued to a candle stick and you can decorate as you wish! :

Lost and Found

Thursday I had the day off and I took a day trip to Grand Rapids to see my sister, we had lunch at The Sky Walk Cafe, looked around the gorgeous Amway and then headed over to antiques heaven! The original plan was to go to this event, which was help in downtown Grand Rapids, though the street vendors were a disappointment the actual antique stores made the trip worth it! Here are some pictures of the store that left me both speechless and repeatedly saying "this place is amazing":

Summer Haze

I must say that I was mostly excited for this summer so I would have time to relax, have time to myself, room to think about nothing, and have me time. Though it seems as if this summer has been the opposite. Time just seems to be flying by, days seem shorter and shorter and my to do lists are far from being completed. The other day I didn't work till the afternoon so I slept in, drank coffee on the deck, and did nothing. It was delightful!

High Heel Hint!

While watching the Miss America pageant on Sunday I learned a tip from the beautiful Giuliana Rancic when it comes to shopping for high heels. Try the shoes on, stand on a hard floor and stand on your toes, if the heel can come at least an inch off the ground then they are great for you, if not the heels are too high.

Sunday Craft Day!

I've been meaning to make cards for awhile now and I finally got some extra time today to sit down and do so!! My boyfriends sister Meredith sent me a pack of scrapbook/card making supplies off an etsy page! They were the perfect inspiration to start creating. Now I just need to think of who to send them too! Here are a few I've made so far:

Yesterday was my 22nd birthday and the best one I have had in a long time! I spent the day out with my mother and my sister, something we haven't been able to do in a while. We ate lunch at my favorite place, Buffalo Wild Wings. Then spent the day shopping and looking around in stores. On the way home we stopped to see some family for a quick visit then once we came home, my sister and I and a few friends went to dinner and drinks. I am so blessed for the family and friends I have, my birthday was perfect and I loved every moment of it. Cheers to a new year! Here are some presents I got: 

{Flowers from my parents}

{A cupcake cake from my sister}

{Yogas and a Bag from my mommy}

{Wine from my Aunt, Sister and Sisters Boyfriend}

{Gifts from my Sister}

{Gift Cards galore from my Parents}
