Thank you so much for all the mad props on my Faux Crown Molding yesterday! It was so much fun to read your reactions. Hopefully now you can tell there is real progress going on in Babygirl’s Room!
My amazeballs friend, Chassity, over at Look Linger Love, tagged me in this fun ‘5 Things I Can’t Live Without’ Series. Of course her list was glamorous and full of style, just like her. Mine is gritty and a little skanky, just like…wait. Nevermind.
Before you judge me for being shallow, keep in mind this list is all in fun. I’m not going to put anything obvious like oxygen, water, my toothbrush or chocolate. Everyone needs those.
Everyone knows you’re not supposed to wash your hair everyday (no, you’re NOT, Mother!). So while I’m not capable of going to bed without a shower first, my head doesn’t get under the water as often. There are plenty of dry shampoos on the market, but this is my favorite because it smells nice, gives me an extra day without washing, and it’s cheap! I buy 6 cans at a time from drugstore.com! See? Skanky.
I love going to the paint store, or staring at all the rows of pretty color swatches at Home Depot. Bright, neutral, satin, spray….I’m always amazed at the power of paint, no bigger bang for your buck. I’m always itching to paint something. In fact, I have a friend who’s afraid to come over because she says I’ll paint her if she stands still long enough.
We just started watching Dexter, and have flown through the first season! It’s so good and creepy, and I’m beyond hooked. Which is weird, because I hate scary or super suspenseful movies. This is a two-parter since we’ve also become dependent on the Netflix app. It’s amazing, tons of movies and shows available instantly! We just plug my iPhone in to the TV, and the Dexter marathon begins!
When I don’t have paint, fabric and projects on the brain, I’m usually thinking about where I want to travel next…road trip one town over, or across an ocean…it matters not to me! Even if I don’t have a trip planned, I love to dream of all the places I hope to see in my lifetime. This is one of the reasons I do so much on the ‘frugal’ side…traveling is our indulgence (not that we don’t travel frugally too!) Mr. Sugarplum and I are venturing to Paris and Belgium in the Spring *squeeeeeeel* This is our second time in Paris, and first in Belgium, and I haven’t even begun to plan it out! I’d welcome any tips you have for the areas!
