Several weeks ago my friend told me that we had a campus garden. I was super pumped. Last week I finally got the nerve to go. It was so very fun and exciting and inspirational. Only problem? I don't know what half of those vegetables are [apparently peppers are the easiest thing to grow?] and I'm super scared that I'll pick them wrong.... and at the wrong time.
Help me learn to garden? [If you know any recipes for anything you see PLEASE SHARE THEM
so I feel like the big green things are bell peppers. But what is that yellow looking thing?
Okay so there's the papa johns pepper, but the red ones I don't know about.

So ORIGINALLY I was like "wow, that tile is a nice cream color and it's basically the same color as my download button! I'll take the picture there." But now I realize people are going to think "WOW SHE TOOK THAT IN A BATHROOM." not "CREAM." [and I lost my bag with my pretty pens so this writing looks strange.] this post is a disaster, but it's okay because He makes everything beautiful in it's time - even tile background pictures (I hope).

hi, yes, hello. I know my pictures aren't quality, but I'm a college kid with only a phone camera and no money. If I can ever afford a camera, I promise they won't suck. (okay, keep reading.)
I decided that Elisha, Elijah, and Ezra needed pretty homes. I saw this cute flowerpot cozy and I thought "oh cool yes, I'll make one. it won't look as good as hers but I'll try."As of right now, in this tutorial, I am referring to the flowerpot cozy as the plant sweater. here we go.

I just realized that Elisha fell over in this photo. Dangit, Elisha.
During fall break, I went to Walmart and bought some plants. My dorm room was crack-a-lackin some greenery so I still hold that this was a good decision. The cactus on the far left is Elijah, the middle is Elisha, and the succulent on the right is Ezra. I think when they're planted, Elijah and Elisha will live in the same pot together (I hope that's safe...). I am super excited about my new plant pals and I hope I don't ruin their lives.
Peter claims that their names sound extremely Amish but I think they sound extremely awesome. Conclusion: Amish names are awesome.

I needed something in my purse so my Tylenol bottle would stop proclaiming that I had pills in my purse, so I decided I need to make a pillbox. I originally tried to use a moon picture, but because the container isn't a circle, it looked strange. I decided to go with constellations instead and it ended up reminding me of almostmakesperfect's constellation coasters. (sorry not sorry but almostmakesperfect again.)

So before I make any more posts, I've decided that I need to hand out a little street cred (the picture is on a street - that's why it's funny. ha ha ha) to those who helped me beautify my blog.
Codecademy helped me learn CSS and HTML in a non-miserable format. I wouldn't be able to understand the tutorials on other websites without it.
oh my goodness. her blog is so pretty. I can feel my blog's self esteem dropping every time I look at almostmakesperfect. her blog's minimalism is a definite inspiration to the design of my blog. She also has good content and diys that I want to make when I get a house or an apartment or a bigger room or my own room or room. Her blog is my favorite and I wish I was as cool as her.
this blog is amazing. She posts tutorials that make your blog beautiful. And it's not one of those blogs that have "pretty blog tutorials" and then the actual blog it's on is hideous. She's currently redoing her site so I can't get on it AND IT'S TERRIBLE. She says she'll be back mid-October, but it is pure torture. I check everyday to see when she's back. She's not back.
I really like this blog. Her post about instagram hastags is really good. I actually get likes now! Moving on... Every Saturday she makes an effort to post a new blog tutorial to "spruce up your blog all on your own." I'm very excited to see what's she's going to post and how I can use her tutorials to make my blog pretty.

I went shopping at a goodwill and found some gold keds. I was very skeptical about buying these shoes because they weren't at all attractive, but I bought them anyways with the hope that new laces and pinterest would help me see the light. They did. Every were I looked "gold keds" presented me with Kate Spade. I really liked how there were being worn (especially here), and I knew that where were the kind I wanted so I got to work.

I was sitting with my boyfriend and scrolling through Facebook when I saw this.
And then I messaged my siblings and now I'm going to see MY TWO FAVORITE BANDS in December and I am stoked. So in honor of my faves making a very good decision and being so nice to me, I made a playlist of some of my favorites by some of my favorites. Be excited about good music.
