Making progress
Fun new things from a random trip to Annie Laurie's antique shop in Cape Girardeau, MO. Seriously, best antique shop ever. I got the map (50 cents!), globe, and sailboat there! I also included a picture of some of the wall art I got for my birthday.
P.S. Sorry I suck at blogging right now... End of semester=Death.

Sweet little lambie
I feel like I'm on an animal-kick lately but how could I not show you this sweet little lambie face? Maybe I should change this into a cute animal blog. No but seriously I have been meaning to show you some updates to the apartment including new artwork and some awesome vintage finds from Annie Laurie's Antique shop (thanks Kelsie!) however my camera is M.I.A. Soon though....soon.
