80’s movies. I LOVE them. That era is seriously my favorite when it comes to movies and music.  We have been having the kids watch all of our favorite movies we watched as kids to see if they would get into them. I can tell there are some things they aren’t as crazy about, but the top favorite of theirs for now is………

Who you gonna call?

That’s right. They are in LOVE! So today I am dedicating my post to one of our favorite classics!

I love these earrings. Rylie has declared that the Stay Puft Marshmallow man is her best friend. She freaks out anytime she see’s him and wants a doll of her own. If I laugh at her for being so cute, she will get mad at me. Then it makes me laugh even more.   (source)

I love these nesting dolls. I would totally put them on my fireplace. (source)

And this is just plain awesome. You can stock up early for Halloween as Dana Barrett! (Source)

This Slimer necklace is so cute with the food dangling around him! (source)

And who could forget the Keymaster? (source)

These bring back SO many memories and think these make great gifts or collectibles for ANY Ghostbuster fan. I think for awhile I may be doing segments based on my favorite 80’s flicks.  I just never get tired of them. What 80’s movies are your favorite?

Woo hoo!!! It’s Friday friends! And I’m super excited. Even though I haven’t been feeling too hot today, but I’m still excited that it’s Friday.  I feel like this week has just gone on and on and on and on…… get the point.

So for this week I confess……

♥  I am having a crafty weekend and I’m super excited. I never was really into crafts much until this past year. Now it’s all that I want to do.
♥  I am making glitter headbands.
♥  And I’m totally revamping half my closet.  Everything that is white, will be getting dyed a fun bright color.
♥  Oh and I’m still hating being completely glued to my crutches. Turns out I fractured my ankle. If I put any pressure on it, then I will completely break it. (gross)
♥  But I’m happy that we are not doing surgery as of now. I am terrified of surgery.
♥  I have had a total of 4 surgeries in my life. 3 C-sections  and also had had my gallbladder taken out.
♥  Doesn’t matter. I still don’t like surgery.
♥  I’ve been a much happier camper now that I’m not taking steroids anymore.
♥  I’m getting pretty sick of Utah’s Bi-polar weather. Today it has been snowing off and on all day. Then it would go foggy. Then snow. Now, the sun has finally come out to play and is beautiful. Oh sun, please stay.
♥  I feel mixed. I have major cabin fever, but at the same time, being home as much as I have is making me more reclusive.
♥  Luckily I am having visitors tomorrow to get a fix.
♥  My shop is opening in less than a week. EEP!
♥  I got my Heart Sunglasses today from Urban outfitters. I have been wanting these forever!

Well, that’s all I have for now. I’m planning on taking pics of my lovely girls night out tomorrow. Even though it’s at my house so I don’t have to travel. And I’ll post pics of my stuff that I revamped. It’s so much easier to make your clothes look new instead of having to spend SO much money buying new stuff. And plus, you get to make it to your specifics. Even better! It’s nice to have something entertaining to do at home since I’m unable to go out. Luckily this is keeping me somewhat sane. 🙂


I hope you all have a great night.

Much love

This just reminds me of my childhood. I love it.

I am really loving Tuesday’s mainly for my segment. I’m always looking at Etsy, but on THIS DAY, I get to share all the things I am loving on there.

So for this week I will be going back to an obsession of mine………..

I love pouches and since this has owls on it, I love it even more! (source)

I really want to sew some little stuff owls and came across this pattern that seems super easy! (source)

I think I must get this Owl music box! It spins!! (source)

I LOVE this necklace! (source)

I must have this cute little 70’s dress for my daughter!!! (source)

I don’t know why I torture myself every week, but I do. But these also give me an incentive to save up and have something to look forward to.  😉

I hope you are having a wonderful night!

♥ xoxo ♥

Yes. It is Saturday. But when I heard that yesterday was a Bloggers day of Silence for Japan, I felt maybe it would be a good chance to take a break from the computer. I know not blogging isn’t going to magically help Japan and I am planning on doing some donations, but I still felt that I needed to stay away.

This week has been very emotional for me so this post may seem more gloomy then usual, but indeed I AM human and do have the downer days. In my case, a week. So my confession for this week is…….

♥ Being on steroids have been horrible. It has made me into the biggest bear and I can’t help it.
♥ I’m not on them anymore thank goodness.
♥ I just got an MRI yesterday to tell me what the heck is going on with my foot/ankle.
♥ It’s really starting to wear on me having to be so dependent on other people.
♥ I won’t lie. I have been feeling like a HUGE burden on others.
♥ Cracking jokes about my ankle is cutting it anymore.
♥ Because of my struggles, I have been getting more creative artistically.
♥ That’s my favorite way to “escape”.
♥  Focusing on my shop has helped me do what I can to stay positive.
♥  Luckily I have awesome kids that will allow me to to draw and paint all day.

I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend. I’ll be posting more often soon. I feel bad I’ve only been posting twice a week, but it’s been crazy hectic with going to doctor’s all the time and having to work late.  And I’ll even post some sneak peaks of some art going in my shop. 🙂

Also for further shop and art information, please go to for updates!

♥ xoxo ♥
