life changing combos.

I like combinations. 
I realized that last night. 
There are things in my life I've combined together,
and have changed my life. 

Such as: 
Peanut Butter & Chocolate. 
Pinterest & a bowl of cereal. 

Ranch dip & BBQ chips. 

Deodorant on a hot summers day. 

Facebook & Homework.

Loud music & cleaning.

Ice cream & cheap wine. 

Him & me.

and most importantly,
Ice cold beer & football. 

What are your life changing combos?!

When we last left off, I told you how we put a bid in on the house of our dreams.
Sadly we didn't get it.
Our offer was beat by several thousands of dollars. 
I know there are other houses out there. 
Better houses. 
Don't worry. I'm keeping my head up. 
by dying my hair black. 

drinking lots of coffee. 

Reading the IKEA catalog and taking lots of notes while wearing fuzzy pink slippers. 

Enjoying the really rainy weekend we had here in Phoenix. 

On to the next.

i can't help falling in love.

So today I’m officially a nervous wreck… Since we were out bid on the last house we really fell in love with, I was very hesitant about going out this weekend and looking for houses. What if I fell in love with another one? What if I start decorating another house in my mind and on pinterest again only to be disappointed?

After both my boyfriend and Realtor bribed me with Starbucks (those two know the key to my heart) we set out to look at houses.

The first one I was still a little grumpy and didn't like the layout. The second one the bathroom was bothering me. The third one I kinda liked. The fourth one however, I fell in love.

I’m talking everything that I wanted in a house.
Colby immediately fell in love.
I fell in love.

We put in another bid.

Then I came to this conclusion.
House buying is totally like dating.
Let’s hope we get a call back for a second date.

Until then I’ll be nervously biting my nails and finding things to occupy my time. 

Oh I could always announce the winner to the amazing giveaway I hosted. 
It was Bella at sitting waiting wishing
Congrats Bella!!!

What i'm loving.

Happy hump day friends! 
Here's a look at all the wonderful things I've been loving this week. 

These words. They keep me strong. I'm loving them for that. 
This Kitchen. So pretty and pastel-y. Any ideas of how I can convince the boy that we need a pastel-y kitchen?

Chalkboard wall with picture frames. I'm in love with this idea. 

The cold weather here in Phoenix. They've been perfect for watching movies, drinking hot chocolate, and snuggling with the boy. 
Mismatching fuzzy socks to keep your feet warm. 
Boys also need fuzzy socks to keep their feet warm. I'm loving that he asked for the "least girly pair" 
Holla if you hear me on this. 
If you got a problem... Yo I'll solve it. 

Statement necklaces and stripes.

This house. We saw it on Saturday and I'm pretty much in love with it. Fingers crossed that we get it! 
What are you loving this week?
