What are you wearing

Lately I have been reading lots of blogs that have outfit posts. 
I love the idea of doing this.

I have been trying to find ways to wear all my cloths in different ways. I found this to be a little challenging, for I don't have a tri-pod.

 Or someone to take the pictures for me. So I found fun ways to set up my camera and take lots of pictures of myself. Not gonna lie I like to take pictures of myself.

T-shift was gift from a friend, i think it was ebay.

Fancy Up Dog Food Holder

I made a decision on my birthday, to make six different DIY projects for the home. So I started with making Lola's food good container look better.
This is a starter project, I am not a master crafter. I hope to come up with a few more for the my home. I hope you enjoy this one.

What I used: 4 liter container, 12x12 scrapbooking paper with a design you enjoy, card stock (any color), paper cutting scissors, Letter stickers, and tape.

Cut the scrapbooking paper to fit the container, then tape it down.

Using the paper cutting scissors to cut the card stock.

Tape the card stock to the container 

Add the letter stickers to the card stock, I keep mine simple.

Place you new food holder in a place that you will be able to see it and use it. I like it between my fridge and sink. 

If you've made something like this let me know. I would love to see other peoples fancy pet food containers.

One year old, one more year of awesome!

Yesterday was my father's birthday, so I traveled home to have dinner with my family. After dinner we exchanged gifts. 
 My dad is one of the most important people in my life. Having dinner with him just reminded me how lucky I am to have him and all my family. 
While eating dinner my dad's cell phone rang with many phone calls from his sister and brothers. All wishing him a happy birthday and some even sang the birthday song (with cha cha cha's).

We talked about plans we have to have a get together with everyone for a game of Bunco on Saturday.

He is a wonderful man, who is now one year older and one more year of awesome.

Bring it on 2013

It's a new year, with new adventures for all. Some people embrace the year with new challenges they set for themselves. Some just nurse their hang over, I do a little of both. I don't set new year resolutions, i do that on my birthday. I just enjoy the day and keep on with my goals.
This is a personal blog by me, Beth! I plan to fill this blog with ideas I have, ideas I've found, and stuff about my daily life.
Starting off a new I'll talk about my day:

Started the day by walking up to Swamp People on A&E tv. I LOVE Swamp People, it's one of my favorite shows. A great way to start out a new year.

After some coffee and breakfast (lunch it was noon), I watched some swamp people and did some cuddling with my sweet dog, Lola.

I then decided to tackle the mess left from the party. It wasn't as bad as I thought, just needed to get it done.  

After the cleaning I finally got around the setting up my Christmas present from my parent. I had a wonderful Christmas, I was also very spoiled with the gifts and the family. I do know my lucky I am to have them. 

After my fiancĂ© finished watching the Michigan football game (they lost, makes for a sad man) we walked the dog. I guess you can kind of chalk this up to a resolution, I do want to start walking my dog everyday. She enjoys walks, and I know I could use the exercise.  
While I cooked dinner, Lola napped. It was a busy night last night, with everyone over for new years and the walk we took earlier. She napped with her bone. I have so many pictures of this dog sleeping, it silly.

After dinner we made popcorn! We got a popcorn maker as a white elephant gift. I love it, and yes that is me in the picture. Not the best photo of me, but I'm not going to like every picture of me.

Our finished product, and it was sooo good. 

The day was pretty good. I can't complain about it. But now off to bed I work tomorrow.

I hope you all enjoyed your first day of 2013
