A few linksys for you.

Here are a few links of things that I enjoyed on the internet this week that I would like to share with you :)

*Someone posted a link on Facebook of a Hunger Games inspired wedding shoot, so I immediately googled that term for more! Here are some of the ones that I really liked:

*A funny post on becoming a regular somewhere.

*This girl is doing a 365 days of hand lettering challenge. Beautiful stuff.

*Officially the best cell phone commercial I've ever seen. It's for a Japanese company, and it is completely astounding.

Sorry I don't have more, I only got it in my head a couple days ago that I could actually share awesome things like this! And if you guys have seen other Hunger Games inspired shoots, please send me the links! I want more! I would love to do one sometime... Maybe a trash the dress session or something... Hmmm...

PS The correct answer to my previous post is 2 (being the lie). I am not allergic to walnuts.

Let's play a game.

Yesterday at cell group we played Two Truths and a Lie. We just mingled and tried to guess each others' lies. Only one person guessed my lie right away. Everyone else thought that a certain one of my truths was my lie. Can you guess?

1. I have never seen the ocean.
2. I am allergic to walnuts.
3. I married my first boyfriend.

My most favorite felt tip pens that I use every day! They have their own pencil case.

Wonderful display at my local Chapters. Love it!
Lazy Sundays with my family. I like how my hubby is the only one who pays any attention to me :P
The other evening Chris and I went for a walk, and it was lovely. This is the sign that tells you where we live.
I made double chocolate banana muffins and they were scrumptious! I ate two while I was reading my book.
My first manicure with my Hunger Games nail polish. These shades = Smoke & Ashes and Riveting
The weekend was so warm!
I love me some popcorn.
Jasmine (@lavendersgreen) and I had a disagreement over whose bathroom is uglier. I think I win. Washing machine 5 inches away from the toilet, burn marks on the ugly counter top, and a bathtub that is a foot deep. Useless.
I recently bought some lemons and have been enjoying them in my ice water. One of the most refreshing things ever? I think so.
I organized my pantry today! I took everything out of the cupboards and rearranged them so that like things were together. Then I moved some of the things that we use more often to the open shelves. I think it makes more sense.
Happy Tuesday! I hope you're having a lovely day!

A letter to you!

Dear friend,

How are you? I'm doing alright. Spring has come very quickly to Manitoba, and all the snow we got over February (the only month we had snow, pretty much) is now gone!

This was a week ago...
This was yesterday!
This nice weather makes me want to do spring cleaning. Yes, we haven't been living in this house for a year yet, but I feel like there is always something that can be cleaned or organized or a project that could be done. I walked through my house a couple weeks ago and wrote down every project in every room that I wanted to finish. 32 items later, I think it's safe to say I'll have a busy spring ahead.

My job isn't going so great these days. I only get 16 hours a week (which is up from 10 - yay!) which is not enough. I had a job interview yesterday, which will be my third in 7 months and a hundred job applications. Some facts: I was nervous. I hate interviews. 120 people applied for the job, so I'm lucky I even got called. It was just a first interview, so we'll see if I even get called for another interview. I hate interviews. I need a full-time job desperately. Prayers are much appreciated.

Do any of you people in a relationship have fun date ideas? And I don't mean dates in theory - I mean dates that you actually do. Chris has been so busy with school that we haven't had much time for dates, and when we do we're in a bit of a rut. I'd like to do something different!

1 more week until the Hunger Games movie is out! I'm so excited!!! I'm going with my sister and our friend next Saturday. We don't dare face the theater on Friday evening. Scary idea!

This weekend is going to be pretty low-key. I have no plans for tonight. Tomorrow and Sunday I'll be singing on the worship team, so that leaves Sunday afternoon free. No plans for then either. Maybe I'll see what my friends are doing - we have to take advantage of this beautiful weather!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend as well, my friends!

<3 Fe

Fill in the blank Friday 3.4

Play along at Lauren's

1.  My favorite room in my home is    the living room   because    it's where Chris and I hang out the most .

2.   My current decor style is    undefined... probably cozy, a little bit rustic, and colorful   but I wish it were more     refined .

3.  I wish I could redecorate the    bathroom   room in my house to make it more    up to date. And I want to put a bigger tub in there!

4. My dream house absolutely has to have a    a nice deep bathtub in a master bathroom. I love a nice long soak .

5. One house item I am willing to splurge on is    the bed. A good mattress is critical!

6. A decor trend that I just don't "get" is    neon or plastic. Yuck .

7.   Pictures and art   are a little touch that makes my house feel like home.
