Fabulous Friday: New Outlook on Life

Yeah!!! Can we say TGIF!!!! This week has been one of the craziest, most dramatic weeks of my life. It was like a friggin rolocoaster! I had some serious personal situations bring me to tears and make me feel like my life was worthless. Then I turned around and pushed through it with some encouraging achievements. Yeah... I can't believe it happened like that but it did. 

So it is a fabulous friday because you know what? I made it through... without making any drastic life changing decisions or mistakes. I want to share with you the UPs and not the downs.... because it's time to move past that. 


First of all I was hesitant to tell all of you that I entered ABM's Pumpkin carving contest because I never win anything... but guess what? I got 1st in Honorable Mention... that's like fourth place right lol. I didn't win anything but I did get the link of my blog on their page and gained a couple of new followers.... so that is a win in my book.

I have been finding some really beautiful vintage clothing and items lately. I got this whole milk glass vase collection for 5 bucks! I'm trying to resist the temptation of keeping it when my original intention was reselling but who knows! PS I kept all the clothing I found!!



Crazy as it is Custard Pies are at mickey dees again and Christmas music is playing!! It kinda scares me with how fast time flies but it did cheer me up today!




Last but not least I received a beautiful new ring from a favorite jeweler of mine on etsy!! You can see my collection of her items is slowly growing. The snow white druzy is my newest dud!





That's about it... except.... THE NEW BLOG DESIGN OF COURSE!!  I am pretty proud of myself for finally figuring out a couple of things on photoshop... by myself! Gosh it took some time and then I go look at the front page of ABM and see she now has an ecourse up to explain how to do all of these things that took me forever to figure out. Ahhhhh.... oh well!

    1. Thanks! I still have one to carve... because we forgot to keep the seeds! I like to cook them and eat them. We waited till the last minute to carve... and the contest was the main reason we did!

  5. Congrats! Love your pumpkin!

    I like your new design! If you'd like to learn more about design I'd recommend Katrina's CSS pretty course. It doesn't cover graphic design, but covers the coding parts VERY well with videos! It's designed for Blogger and Katrina really knows what she's talking about! http://www.puglypixel.com/2012/09/10/style-workshop/
