its because I LOVE DEXTER.

I'm BEYOND obsessed with Dexter
{& michael c. hall}
so for halloween it only seemed right that we were Dexter & his victim
[victim & Dexter]

if you don't know what dexter is...


its because i can craft without wearing my pantyhose

[like that patterned wall? well its NOT wallpaper, its FABRIC!! tutorial coming soon!!]
[poor henry & his ugly haircut]
{wood}- $6 
{bracket}-$2 each

also, we hung some shelves in our kitchen...
it looks so cute. i love our little home.
it's slowly but surely coming together


fabric can be wallpaper

yeah. that's not wallpaper... its FABRIC!
its pretty great huh!?
it looks & feels like wallpaper!

this is just a sneak peek.
tutorial coming soon!


its because acid BURNS.

so today was my saturday off.
MITCH had school in the morning.
then we went to the home depot.
i wanted to make acid washed mirrors.
[anthro is amazing.]
well here are the supplies needed..
& here are the mirrors.
{the round one ended up not working.. it was to "new" of a mirror, & we didn't know how long to leave the muriatic acid on, so the frilly small one pretty much turned clear. 
BUT the other 3 turned out AMAZING!!}
& some more pics....

its safe to say, IM OBSESSED.
the mirrors were SO easy to do..
the paint stripper & muriatic acid EAT you ALIVE!!

& it's been a couple posts..
so i think its time to unleash this baby.
you're welcome.


its because my husband loves me.

so yesterday
{labor day}
MITCH & i went to an antique mall.
i spotted my DREAM light.
it's a little bit bigger than a basketball.
it was priced for $70.. but the booth was 30% off.
so with tax and everything it was about $45.
freaking steal.
MITCH is amazing and re-wired the whole thing & hung it.
he's pretty much the best.
{love you mitch.}


its because hobos have style.

so people think im crazy,
but i think the best compliment ever is:
you look like you should of lived in the 70's
the more homeless i look, the better.

whats your favorite style?

oh & btw.
mitch said he would DIE
 if this picture was not framed, and hung in our house.
i kinda agree with him.


its because i am sort of a hippie.

i got bangs. 
 i love them
when MITCH first saw them,
he said, "hill, you're bangin'!"
{i think that means he likes them}

what do you think?

me and my bfff breann went to creative escape.
we laughed the whole night and had the best time ever!
go to
this awesome blog
to hear about our experience.


its because dogs melt hearts.

{sophia & henry}
heart is melting.
hen begs to be held.
heart is melting x2

so i got a text from one of my very good friends breann.
it said:
"hill, one of the girls at my work told me she read your blog from my mention in one of my posts. She said you're hilarious and she loves you."
well breann's coworker, i love you too.
you're super great! & thank you!!
{p.s. breann is SUPER crafty & cute. you should read her craftlicious blog..}
this is for you co-worker.
heart melted.

its because we have to smile to appear normal.

this past week the henslee's were in town.
MITCH's parents stayed with us 
it was super fun to have them here
they are a HUGE blessing in our lives.
[mitchell, scott, donna, tristan]
i'm thankful for MITCH.
he is my everything.

i cant get over how cute this little pup is.

oh &
p.s. people keep asking where i got my tights
here is a run down of the outfit.
{shirt: target/ skirtu/o/ tights: u/o/ shoes: target}


its because girls can be polygamists too

if i could be a polygamist
 i would so have the hottest husbands.
[in no particular order.]

George strait
for anyone that really knows me i have been OBSESSED
with george strait since i was about 7 or 8 years old.
not only is his music amazing but he is soo handsome.
before i die {or he does} i HAVE to meet him.

 Michael C. Hall. [dexter]
oh my freaking hottness.

james franco

but even BETTER than having them as my husbands
is having MITCH as my husband.

i love MITCH more than anything

and honestly i am the happiest & luckiest person alive to be married to him.
he is absolutely PERFECT.
and amazingly hott.
i love him more than ever.
i'll ALWAYS pick you.


its because we're all too cute for tuesday.

with my $10 shirt.
nords. you rock my world.
{striped shirt: target [$8]; tribal top: nordstrom [$10]; pants, shoes, necklace: urban outfitters}

also, i suggest these haircuts.
everyone should have a bowllet
{bowl cut/ mullet}


its because im half narwhal.

FINALLY got my shower curtain for the spare bathroom!
[show curtain: urban outfitters]

this is me in narwhal form.
 there are TONS of hilarious narwhal drawings.
my AMAZING brother-in-law draws these
he is super rad & super creative.
looks just like me, right?
{like the page on F/B}

i'll leave you with this cute face.

would YOU want a picture of YOU as a narwhal?


its because i love puppies and unicorns.

1st i have to show you how cute MITCH is.
i was about to do my morning ritual
[checking fb, email, blogs etc.]
and when i opened the computer i saw this cute message.

he is the greatest.
i love him.

so urban outfitters is THE greatest store ever.
80% of everything i own is from there.
well i gave my living/fam room a curtain makeover.
i waited for 5 days to get them..
and when they got here i ALMOST pooped my pants because i was so happy.

this is how the room used to be.
not bad.. but kind of drab.

doesnt it look so good!? im OBSESSED.
i feel like it's so much more homey and cute! 
i love love LOVE them!
