Today is weird.  Yesterday it was 29 degrees and snowing hard.  Today it is 48 degrees and sunny.  I'm confused. I realize it is Ohio, and not just Ohio but Cleveland, but still.  I feel like the weather could be a little more consistent.  Oh well, can't complain too much because it's sunny now!  Supposedly it's going to be sunny tomorrow as well but we'll see, anything can happen!

Picked up Domino: The Book of Decorating from the library today.  It is AMAZING!  I can't believe it took me this long to check it out.  I feel so inspired now.  Unfortunately I am on campus until May 7th so it's a little difficult to do things up here.  Still I can plan!  And go thrifting (which I am dying to do, garage sales where are you?)!  I can't wait to get my apartment and decorate it.  I'm not sure if I'll be able to hang anything but either way I'll find a way to make it look nice! :) Now I can finally put all of the photos of beautiful interiors I've been saving to some use!

School is getting busy.  I'm tired of this semester.  I am starting to get excited about having an apartment next year.  I've been collecting odds and ends here and there.  I believe I know which building I'll be living in, I just have to wait until June before they'll know their availability.

My Socialite Dress Pattern by Anna Maria came yesterday!  I have been wanting to make this dress since seeing pictures of it months ago here.  When she announced it was going to be a pattern I was so excited! This is just a test run with some clearance fabric.  I rushed through it a bit, I was just so excited! Wearable, but a test run for a reason ;) Considering it is my first article of clothing ever made, I'm happy! Now all I have left to finish is possibly making a belt for it! :)

Go buy this pattern! --> Here!

Will take better photos soon.  It's snowing here today, yuck!
