(Mostly) Current: Bedroom

With the exception of the wonderful LED television that Tim got me for Christmas, these are pretty much the way our bedroom looks right now.
Sadly, this will be changing soon since we gain our lease for our new apartment on Thursday [insert Wendy's sadface here], but I'm dreaming of paint colors for our new bedroom!  So I have mixed emotions about the move.
Enough about that, though...

Oh, I also forgot that we have a very sweet quote by Owl City in the form of a poster now hanging above our bed now.  So I guess I owe myself a COUPLE of update photos, at least...

We only got those curtains halfway through living here, but I think they added something to the room that it didn't have before!
Wondering why they're hung so high?  Neat tip:  If you have a low ceiling (or very little visual appeal) in any room, you can hang your curtains closer to the ceiling to add height to the room!  It makes a HUGE difference.

Oh, and those prints to the right of the window are from a cute little autobio blog/webcomic you can check out here.  If you have the time, you should check it out!  It's pretty swell.  

This is my side of the bed, complete with a cute little rabbit jewelry holder I got from Anthropologie, all my little techno-gadgets charging, and some side-table paper bouquets I made myself.  I'm pretty proud of them.

The finale:  Tim's side table!  Those are his old glasses, right there.  Interesting fact (to me, at least... not all of us have the same sense of humor as I, I suppose):  he's had those glasses since he was in middle school!  He just kept changing the lenses out.
Oh, and that book jacket without a book inside it for it to house is really only removed so it won't get ruined.  

Anyone else take their book jackets off of large books while they're reading out of the paralyzing fear that they might ruin them if they leave them on?  Or recently make paper bouquets out of boredom?

Apartment Numero Uno--Anything Else I Have A Picture Of...

A good majority of the next few pictures I'm posting are from my bedroom (that was a sunroom) when it snowed.  They aren't great pictures, and I mostly took them because, at the time, I thought it was hilarious that the cats were all clumping around my window to see whatever-it-was that was falling on the outside world.

Admittedly, it still makes me giggle a little.

But I digress!  I have a few photos of my living situation outside of the living room from the first apartment, and while they aren't great, I'll post what I can.

To give you an idea of just how absolutely terrible these next few photos are going to be... These are some of the best pictures I have of Tim's room (which my room was adjacent to, connected by two little French doors).  The cat was our roommate's cat, and his name was Ragnarok.  Tim and I just referred to him as "Rags," which we thought was more fitting, don't you think?
The photo above shows you Tim's TV, his PS1, a roommate's PS2, his Robotech box set (heck yes), and the door to the bathroom.  Sexy, right?

This is a pretty excellent view of Tim's tiny little desk, and a chair that was a roommate's that we STILL somehow have.  Our cats adore it.

This is one side of our tiny kitchen, complete with a birthday cake for Darrell...

And the other side with the sink and the fridge, complete with Tim.  I had forgotten how long his hair used to be!  Awwwwwwwww.

Instead of a TV, I had a monitor hooked up to an XBox for entertainment in my room.  It had to stay right up against my bed because of the sheer size of my bedroom.  It was... cozy.  Haha.
My cat, Mister Kittens, was watching Doctor Who with me.  Silly cat.


I have to admit:  I was going to upload a bunch of photos I took from the snow day to show my bedroom off, but then I came across this video.  If you're willing to sit through 4 minutes of cat antics and my awful voice, or even if you only sit through a minute of it, this is a pretty good representation of my room, along with a glimpse of Tim's room.  Bonus:  My room wasn't cleaned! Woohoo!

So if you were wondering about the old old apartment, there it is.  Next up: a handful of photos from our last apartment.  How... exciting?

Every Day is a Good Day to Love

Every time I visit the grocery store over the past couple of weeks, it has been [aggressively] whispering in my ear, reminding me of two things that are fast approaching:  the Superbowl, and Valentine's Day.
Honestly, I don't care about either... But the coming of Valentine's Day made me feel like I could share something that I don't normally share with people.
I've always felt that you should share your love with your loved ones every day, not just go all-out one day of the year.  Small things, big things, I just think random acts of love and kindness are the way to a happier life, as well as overall better relationships with your loved ones.

That being said, let me introduce you to my bath crayons!

These little guys are awesome.  
Yeah, yeah... I know, I'm an adult... So why don't I act like it?
Let me show you what me and Tim use them for, though.

Sorry for the weird shadows--my bathroom lighting isn't the best when it comes to trying to photograph things in the bathtub.  Who'd have thought?

You can kind of guess which ones I made and which ones Tim made...

And I apologize for the smudging.  Some of these have been up in the shower for months now!  After awhile they start getting kind of drippy, if you like hot showers as much as I do.

Well, there it is.  Every time a new one sprouts up on the tiles, my heart skips a beat.  No lie.  
I love that I'm with someone who's as cheesy and weird as I am...

How about you guys?  How do you randomly express your love to your significant others, partners, families, children, etc?  I'd love to hear!
