I finally started going back to the gym.  And I bought trainer sessions.  My trainer is cute.  He also seems very nice.  Don't be fooled, he's pretty much evil (he has admitted he's entirely sadistic).  I haven't NOT been sore for about two weeks now.  Also, the beer cushion around my belly is NOT happy.  I have the weakest stomach muscles ever.  However, I keep telling myself it's worth it.  We'll see...

We had our awards dinner and Holiday party for work the last two weekends.  I got to wear super sparkly shirts.  I never get to wear sparkly things to work because it's considered a product contamination risk, so I had to make up for it the past two weekends.  I looked awesome.  :) 

People at work are under the misconception that I can dance.  I find this hilarious seeing how I have NO rhythm.  Seriously, NO RHYTHM.  I'm beginning to question their opinions.

I have been on a hat making kick.  Pretty sure I've made about 10 hats in the last few months.  I'm to the point I can't even wear all the hats I made.  LUCKILY, I just got a request from 4 different people to make them hats.  Yay hats! 
Yeah, I'm boring.  I don't know what else is going on.  I've been working and going to the gym a lot  That's about it....Although I am super excited for March when I'm going to Austin with the sisters.  Can't wait!

The Guest Room!

I finished my guest room this weekend (except for the curtains, those have to wait another month or two until I get more fun money).  Sorry for the crappy quality of pictures (and I obviously feel no need to clean up or stage things before taking pictures, but meh, it is what it is). 
I wanted something fun and happy with lots of colors.  One of the things I really dislike about living in apartments is the lack of color.  In my last place, all the rooms were painted different colors and I had a lot of white furniture.  Here, all the walls are white and I feel like all my furniture just blends into the walls, and I want color!
So, my guest room main colors are turquoise and silver.  My sister claims the lamps are just tacky and I should tell my guests they are sleeping in a boudoir.  I claim it's the Jersey trash in me coming out.  Either way, I adore these lamps.  They are silver and sequined.  What more could you ask for? 
And, here's my favorite new addition.  I love this picture of Paris.  It just makes me want to travel.  (I swear my room is not as oddly warped as it appears in this picture) 

So, it's my bright and shiny guest room.  It makes me happy just looking at it.  :)

Little Ferb and his awesome hat

So, I made Ferb a hat as I mentioned before.  It fits!  (also is he not the cutest baby ever!)

My new precious

I went to the outlets yesterday to look for an outfit to wear to an awards dinner next weekend, and I found the cutest outfit.  But, I also randomly decided to go into the Coach outlet, and....I found this:

Oh the hearts

I made some hats for Little V and Ferb that I gave to them at Christmas (but not really as Christmas gifts). 
Ferb just got a standard blue and orange striped, ribbed hat.  Nothing too exciting.  But, I made it ribbed to accomodate our family's large heads and it will hopefully grow with him for a while.  We'll see.  (Or, I could have just failed entirely and it will be way too small and never fit the kid). 
But Little V's hat made me think it was just so freaking cute.  The hat itself is kind of meh.  It's just hot pink with a blue cuff and pom-pom. 

But, the part that made me squee and think it was so freaking cute is the heart buttons.  I don't know why, but buttons on a hat make me super happy.  Especially when they are tiny hearts. 

I kind of love this hat.  I don't think Little V is all that impressed with it, but that's ok.  I had fun making it.  And I can just look at the little hearts and be happy :)

I have no eyebrows!!!

I was pretty much dying the last week of December.  I had a horrible fever for about 4 days (spiked up to 104F a few times, so I'm not really exaggerating).  I felt awful.  I pretty much stayed on my couch all week and felt sorry for myself and shook uncontrollably (I was insanely cold and boiling hot all at the same time).  I was miserable. 

I finally started feeling slightly more human the day before New Years Eve, and then woke up on New Years Eve feeling like I only had a cold, and was slightly deaf in my right ear.  Fun times.  I finally dragged myself to the doctor (I don't mess around with ear infections, I had WAY too many of them growing up to take them lightly).  I apparently had a double ear infection, for the win! 

Yes, my 2012 was going out kicking and screaming, but I survived.

I woke up today and I felt human again.  I still have a stuffy nose, but I can hear almost normally again, and I have no fever, and basically, I feel so much better than I did just 2 days ago that I could care less about the stuffy nose. 

I decided I wated to treat myself to something to make me feel prettier and put together (4 days of not really showering had me feeling kind of disgusting and scruffy).  So, I decided I should get my eyebrows waxed because they were looking quite scruffy and overgrown.  

Big Mistake.

When my sister was a kid, she had really light eyebrows.  They were so light you could barely see them.  She looked in the mirror one day and started freaking out she had no eyebrows because she couldn't see them. 

Um, yeah, I kind of feel like that.  Only, I have an eyebrow, I'm just missing a portion of it. 

So to be honest, I'm more amused than annoyed by this.  But at the same time.  I AM MISSING HALF MY EYEBROW!!!! 

And, she managed to rip it off right where the scar from my old piercing is (fine mom and dad, you were right, I FINALLY regret having that done) so I can't even try and "draw" one in because the scar just makes it super obvious I drew on an eyebrow. 

Can't wait for work tomorrow....

(And before anyone asks, no, I did not pay for the waxing...)
