Living Room Tour & An Outfit!

4:38 PM

I am going to share with you guys mt favorite room in the entire apartment! The living room. It is probably the room that gets the most abuse too. Since it is the biggest room, everyone hang out in there. Even the pets. Kyle and I eat in there more than the kitchen, and we tend to dump all of our stuff in this room when we come home. 

 Kyle took these pictures of the flowers that we planted in our garden when we first moved in the apartment. I really want to scan them and share them with you guys sometime soon.

I really love this picture Kyle snagged from a yard sale when we moved in, it is a little bit bumped up like everything else we own, but I don't know. I love sitting on the couch looking at it.

Probably the only picture we bought from a store, the clearance rack at Micheal's. I t reminds me of Tim Burton a little bit, it reminds Kyle of Harry Potter. It was originally in the bedroom, but when we painted the living room purple (another one of my picks) we knew it looked better in the living room.

This we bought at an art fair before we even moved in. It was painted by a student at OCC. I have never been to Paris, but this is what I imagine it took be like.

This is my favorite couch in the whole world. It was given to me by my Gramps and it pulls out into a bed. I love how beautifully tacky it is (I like tacky things btw). The pillows were given to me by my friend Verna, and the blanket by my friend Tanya. The Eeyore? Kyle.When I was in high school, I loved Eeyore (I still do). Eventually someone found out and I have so much Eeyore crap it is scary.

My Dad made this last shelf for me when I was little. All the Eeyore's were given to me by Kyle or the fam or from friends.

Just a few more of my favorite things in the living room. My Dad loves picking up tacky little nick-knacks for me to collect, better to feed my addiction of tacky items. 

Kyle and I have a serious movie addiction, both of the cupboards are stuffed with DVDS. There is also my very small record collection, as well as my Buffy, X-files and Scrubs DVDS. :)

My favorite toy! My record player Kyle got me for my birthday, complete with the Von Bondies on vinyl.

Louie in his favorite spot. This couch has been through Kyle's Mom's dog, our two kitties, and now Louie. I think we may never get a nice couch in fear that it may look like this after a month. 

I am sorry that there are so many pics in this post, but some of you guys want to see the "tour" and there are only two rooms left :) Okay, onto the outfit pics from yesterday. 

Again, I really suck at shopping for an occasion. I went to the mall to look for something to wear to Kyle's graduation, and somehow went into Hot Topic and walked out with another plaid shirt, and this Death Cab for Cutie T. A band shirt? What am I 15 again? But I couldn't help it, I love them and in the morning I put this on and Kyle really liked it. I know it's hard to tell in these pics but I cut my hair with the help of Christina's video. I was freaking out the other day because I was dumb and put pomade in it and it made it all flat and oily the next day. I think I found out a good system for styling so I shouldn't have a problem anymore. Anywho, tomorrow is the recap so expect to see lots of Kyle in a cap and gown :)

    RE my post: cold mountain is the second book I've started lately that I cannot get into. I usually give the book about 50 pages and then kaput, and now I am at 70 and still no luck. from reading the back cover it doesn't seem like there is much plot, hmm I'll keep trucking to 100 and then quit if it still sucks haha. It's just frustrating picking up like 3 books and never making progress, some books are slow at the start, but still. what book are you trying to read, so I can avoid it haha?

  7. I like your paisley skirt and how you paired it with that Death Cab t-shirt, haha! Your living room is quite awesome actually, I especially like that Paris painting!
