Jon and I watched Julie & Julia last week and I was completely inspired by the style of Julie. I loved her apartment, it was so cute! Especially her bedroom area. My husband won't be happy about this but I want to re do our bedroom. Right now it's so boring and doesn't feel cozy at all. Our sheets are so dingy and ugly it's sad. I want our bedroom to be granny chic + 80s camper aka floral sheets, crochet pillows, with some plaid mixed in. I'll probably start gathering materials soon so I can make the pillows my self and start searching for unused vintage floral sheets. I'm not sure where to find unused vintage floral sheets...ebay i guess?

I love love Emma Pillsbury's style on Glee and the other day I was at Target and they have so many cute spring cardigans, sweaters, trenches, tops etc..that are totally Emma worthy and the prices are amazing! I bought 5 colorful pieces and one was a mustard colored cardigan that was on clearance for $5. woohoo! I'll have to post pictures as I wear them, all though no promises because I'm not really into that, but on my East Texas post I am wearing a pink button up shirt and that is one of them! I love Target so much.
I got a ginormous bag of pecans from Jon's Grandpa during Christmas that he shelled himself and Candy told me I should make Pecan Divinity and since it's one of my favorite sweets ever I decided I definitely needed to make them. My husband calls it angel poop! It turned out soo good! They were incredibly easy to make. This is the recipe I used (from All Recipes.com.)
2 cups sugar 1 cup water 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 250 degrees F (hard-ball stage). Remove from the heat; stir in marshmallow cream, vanilla and pecans. Continue stirring until candy cools and begins to hold its shape when dropped from a spoon. Quickly drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

I've been catching up on all the blogs I read. Whew, it's very time consuming! I discovered I was tagged byAshley to post 7 random facts about myself. So here it goes!
1. I grind my teeth when I sleep, which is really bad for me but I don't care to wear a mouth guard at night.
2. I'm vegetarian but I eat very unhealthy things. Mostly carbs and starches and sugars. This is all catching up to me now that I'm in my late 20s and it sucks.
3. I'm half mexican. Not like real mexican, I don't speak spanish and it's not like my mom was born there, in fact my mom is 4th generation Texan but that's my heritage. I always get asked "what i am" because I obviously look not-quite-white.
4. I have a psychology degree. I don't know why.
5. I love getting mail and sending mail and buying cute packing materials.
6. My hair color is completely natural, it hasn't been completely natural since 6th grade. It's weird, but the texture is so different. It's softer and styles better.
7. I hate talking on the phone.
