Wooden Spools- I love these things.
The same boots that I paid full price for the night before (and by "I" I mean my parents..)
A neat old watch that is yes, upside down in the picture.
Hilarious Roomie from post # 1, this is for you.
I've yet to figure out why I didn't buy this.
An oasis of books...
A box-full of air-fresheners!
A for Allen :)
Salt and Pepper Shakers anyone? My favorite were the geese :)

Hello Blog Readers! I had every intention of posting this last night (notice the title), until my roommate appropriately reminded me of the homework I needed to complete for this morning. I highly recommend taking classes with friends! It always works to your advantage...until they get a better grade than you...
Anyways, yesterday was December 1- the first day of possibly the best month of the year, besides February (my birth month) and May (perfect weather) and November (pumpkin pie)...I digress. December. It started yesterday, which means Christmas is officially upon us. For those of you who refused to listen to Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving, you must officially give in. It is the Holiday Season my friends!
In honor of this important day, I made this wreath! Isn't it fun? Our house is filled with homemade, hand-me-down, and thrift store items so it fits in perfectly. Except I put it on the door to my room..1) because I'm selfish and want all the Christmas cheer for myself 2) because we already have a wreath in the living room 3) because I made it! geez!
We're still working on getting our tree. Lately, it seems like we're never home at the same time (when we're not sleeping)..
So Merry Christmas friends! How are you showing your Christmas cheer?

At the risk of sounding cliche, I have so many things to be thankful for. The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful family, great friends, and as of Saturday night the best football team in the state of Florida.
I started off my Thanksgiving day by baking a delicious sweet potato pie with my Dad (a tradition that we have done since I was a little girl). My Mom set a beautiful table that, in my opinion, could have appeared in Southern Living. My Grandma and Granddad supplied the Thanksgiving meal necessities- turkey and dessert. I mean let's be honest, I could easily forego the vegetables and eat a healthy portion of turkey and pie and be completely satisfied. It was a lovely evening in which I saw family and friends that I don't get to see very often, ate entirely too much, and finished it off by waiting 5.5 hours in line at Wal-Mart to buy a laptop for Mom and Dad. Don't worry, they paid me to wait in line. 50 extra bucks in my pocket? Check! Could it get any better? Well Life Through a Lens readers (all two of you), since you asked, yes it could! On Saturday night, my beloved Florida State Seminoles put an absolute beat-down on the Florida Gators for the first time in 6 longgggg years. Redemption. Sweet Redemption. O How Sweet The Sound..
Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend with friends and family and realized how much we all have to be grateful for. Take care!

On my drive home this weekend I spotted a beautiful mixture of orange, yellow, and red (and yes still green) leaves. I was driving just around dusk, and it was so beautiful that I stopped on the side of HWY 19 to snap a few photos. With the combination of the of pre-Thanksgiving travelers traffic and the very inconvenient location I chose to stop (the side of a bridge), I wasn't able to get very many good shots. But they'll do. So, Happy November everyone! Enjoy it because it'll be gone before you can say "Are you serious, Clark?"
