Day 24: Where I live

....because I live in a "smaller" area... I don't really want to disclose where I live.. but... I will tell you a little bit about it..

I am close to Minnapolis, MN
I graduated with 40 kids
It gets REALLY cold here in the winter
It gets REALLY hot here in the summer
I don't have a Sephora, MAC, Ulta, Marshalls, or Nordstroms close by me .... :(
I LOVE the "small town" atmosphere...
I LOVE being close to a BIG city ;)

... any ideas?

Day 23: A youtube video

Well, I won't be crazy and link to one of my own videos... 

How about something funny? Alright... 

This is one of my ALL time favorite videos... it makes me laugh sooooooo hard [CATS]

Ok, this makes me tear up EVERY time I watch it... *tears up* [EAGLE]

So, I love those two videos!!!

Day 22: A website

I LOVE this website for nail polishes! I order from them ALL the time. They have discontinued polishes, collections... they have OPI, China Glaze, Orly, Essie, Color Club... just tons of polishes!

I have a 10% off code too: BEAUTY10

Check it out and let me know what you think!!!!

Day 21: A recipe


1 devil's food cake mix
1/2 c. shortening
2 eggs
Mix the above ingredients together. Roll the dough into dime-sized balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Cool cookies.
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 square butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 to 4 c. powdered sugar
Mix all of frosting ingredients until smooth. Frost BACKS of cookies and place together to make sandwich cookie.

I always put them in the freezer after i'm done because I think they are SO much better frozen!

Day 20: A hobby of yours

Well this one is pretty obvious.

It's a word I like to describe as... hoarding, expensive, fun, creative... hehe


I LOVE makeup. I love playing with it, wearing it, putting it on others, swatching it... all of the above.

Just check out my youtube channel!

Day 19: A talent of yours

Well since you all know I'm a photographer, that would be boring if I posted that. A different talent of mine would be that I am really good at golf. [not intending to sound like a snob]

I've been golfing since I was really young, and my dad taught me. We used to go golfing all the time. I was on the varsity team when I was in 8th grade and went to state golf every year since I went on varsity. My senior year I placed 9th in the sate... I was sad. But oh well!

What are your talents?

Day 18: My wedding/future wedding/past wedding

I got married on 9/8/2007

This picture just sums up my relationship with my husband. We LOVE to goof!

I love him to pieces >.<

Day 17: An art piece (drawing, sculpture, painting, etc)

This is probably one of my FAVORITE paintings, mostly because I've seen it in person... and its so different when you can be so close to something so wonderful....

The Mona Lisa

You would expect it to be this GREAT big painting and it's really not. It's actually kind of small.... but it is so amazing. I hope someday you can see it in person!

Day 16 : A song that makes you cry (or nearly)


Day 15: Your dream house

This one is hard to describe... but.. now that I've owned my first "starter" home, I really know what are some MUST haves. I mean, I have a LOT of must haves in my current house but there are some things that I really REALLY need in my forever home.

1. BIG laundry room
2. Studio for my photography/makeup
3. BIG closet
4. Office
5. BIG [fenced] yard
6. BIG kitchen
7. Jacuzzi tub
8. Basement
9. Wrap around porch
10. Porch swing (i know, I can always add this)

Those are most of the MUST haves I think... what are yours?

Day 14: A non-fictional book

This one isn't easy... because I don't read that many books. I know, silly of me, but it's true. I haven't read one of these kinds of books in SO long... but I think one that is really good is the Diary of Ann Frank. That bok was sooooooo real and so heart tearing.

If you haven't read it, you must.

Day 13: A fictional book

This is really easy. 

The Harry Potter Series.

I LOOOOVE these books. I am so sad that they have finally ended, and now there is only one more movie left. I really REALLY hope she writes more books. 

What do you think of this series?

Day 12:: Something you are OCD about

Ok, so you are going to LAUGH at this... 

When I am in a store, and let's say I open something up to inspect it... such as a smell, or spray... like a candle oil or a deodorant or detergent... even if I am the one who opens it, I HAVE to put it back and get a fresh one. Sometimes I will grab something in the back too to ensure that no one has touched it besides the person who stocked the shelf. My husband literally laughs and shakes his head everytime I do this, but I HAVE to... like it would BOTHER me so severely bad if I bought it knowing it was already openeing preiviously.

crazy? i think so... exciting!

Hey loves!!! So i've decided that once I reach 100 followers on here, I am going to be doing a giveaway!!!! Yep, that's right, another giveaway!!! So spread the word, and let's have some fun in this journey!!!

What kind of blog posts would you like to see?

Day 5: Favorite Quote

"Life Is What You Make It"

This quote was said to me when I was younger by my parents, and it is the best thing they could have ever told me. Life is EXACTLY what you make it. If you want to be poor and unsuccessful then you will let it be that way, but if you want to live a HEALTHY, rich (not just financially rich), and fulfilling life... you will make it that way!

Everyone has dreams and hopes and let downs in their life, but if you REALLY want something in your life... you can make it happen. If you wake up one day and decide that you want to be an astronaut... then you need to do what you need to do to be that!

Always set yourself goals because that is the only way you will ever get anywhere. Yes, you WILL fail at times, but you will also succeed. Always push yourself, no matter what. Like I said, your life will be exactly what you want it to be... or exactly how you LET it be.

Day 4: Favorite book

So, in all honesty I don't really read books all that much. I read the twilight series and the harry potter series and I LOOOOOOVED those! Besides those, i am a HUGE cookbook nerd. I LOVE cookbooks. I could sit and look through cookbooks for HOURS AND HOURS! No joke!

Now, when it comes to cookbooks I want real, down to earth cookbooks. Not where I need to go out and spend $26.99 on one ingredient. ya know what I mean? Lets be realistic!!! I love some Rachael Ray cook books and just some of those "church" cookbooks where all the church ladies come together and put their recipes in one book, they are great!

I LOVE magazines!!! Down below I will post some pictures of my favorite magaizines, cookbooks, and what not!


Thanks for reading everyone!!!
