side effects:
1. lightness of wallet.
2. inability/difficulty using "regular" clear tape.
3. blurred vision- due to staring at screen searching ebay for hours.
4. difficulty breathing/hyperventilation- due to a new cute pattern.
5. itching- to get more.

Interview on Decor8!

Holly interviewed me for her awesome design blog Decor8! Click HERE to find out more about me than you've ever wanted to know!

what I learned today:

It is NOT acceptable to wear spandex pants to the gym. How I found out? mother so graciously purchased a one month gym membership for me. How sweet and utterly rude at the same time. What are you tryin' to say? Surfing the internet for 17 hours a day and eating pizza for every 6th meal isn't part of a healthy lifestyle? I am shocked! So...I bust out my spandex pants from 10 years ago and slap the suckers on over my fluffy bod and proudly parade into the gym to be greeted by snickers (not the chocolate type) and wide eyed stares.
