More Photo Dumping

Almost forgot these two pretties. Both Sarah Richardson creations. She is good. I decided I have to put turquoise and red together somewhere in my house becuase of how much I loved this. And this is my perfect master bathroom. Clean. Light. White cabinets. Bathroom perfection.
Ok now i'm done.

My latest obsession is interior design blogs. Anytime I have ANY down time at work I am jumping from blog to blog of gorgeous, fun and fancy rooms designed by some awesome designers. So here are some of my faves. Honestly my main purpose in compiling all these is to have inspiration for one day when I have the time and money to decorate my spaces. Because one day I just know I will actually OWN something... First is the bedroom with a stenciled or wallpapered wall. I am imagining a big fancy print like this in gray or silver behind my headboard. And here is my dreamhouse...yep I'm pretty sure I could live happily ever after here.
(Meghan Morrow from When I grow up...) I have decided I have a kindof traditional style I like the clean, natural, cozy look of this room. And I love the bookshelves/cabinets on each side of the fireplace.

The thing I like about this kitchen is the circle tile backsplash, the lantern light and the cool wood on the island/bar.

I was super excited when I found this design plan by Emily A Clark because it is the exact colors that I have going on in my living room. Fate.

I absolutely love the striped drapes in this dining room and the tan and red combo. I have a renewed desire to learn to sew and graduate from the pajama pants level I have been stuck at since 9th grade.

And in honor of Kayla, Marissa, Jac and all the other pregos out there...I had to include this cute girly nursery.

This was another great idea from Emily A Clark to frame art work from children's books. Clever.

Well, at least that is out of my system now. Maybe I'll start having some focus in my life again, but probably not.

Ten Books I Want to Read This Year

I recently got my very own Brigham City Library card!!! YAY. Ry keeps making fun of me, just because he is not cool enough to have one...

So after reading through Oprah's Book Club list I have decided on the ten books I want to read this year, and probably will have to get right on this since I'm sure law school will get in the way come September.

1. Jane Eyre- I decided I needed to read this after watching Definitely Maybe
2. Battle Hymn of A Tiger Mother- I'm just intrigued on why all asians have to be over achievers
3. Freedom- my mom bought this book, so it must be good
4. I think I love you- the title alone
5. The Catcher in the Rye- apparently a classic
6. The Biography of Marjorie Pay Hinkley- because I love her and I bought it 2 years ago...
7. Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day- movie looks cute, but there's no way I'll get Ry to sit thru it
8. Joseph Smith's Lectures on Faith- was an institute class I never took and wish I did
9. Cold Sassy Tree- I'm cheating. I started this in Dec, it was a fun Christmas read
10. Standing For Something-started & used in church probably ten times without ever reading it all the way through

And now I have to admit that I have actually finished #s 1, 7, and 9 thanks to my job at the USU extension here in Brigham City. But, I quit that job last week (one down two to go). So now I will probably start moving a LOT slower. But for my last week I read Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day in two sittings during my classes! I loved it, it was just what I needed to get me through an uneventful week in March.

Leona Lewis - Run - Full Studio Version

I have no idea how but I have become OBSESSED with this song today. So i'm slightly in love with the dramatic and over-the-top theatrical performances. sue me.

I think I somehow stumbled upon it in this order-paul potts-six yr old singing over the rainbow-leona lewis live performance wows simon....curse you youtube. ANYWAY

I found myself alone at work for the last couple hours of the day and was definitely repeating this over and over on youtube at a not-so-professional level. And apparently/obviously was so enthralled I didn't notice a client come in...*BUSTED* how awkward.
