We Interrupt this Program to Bring You Some Kickass Messages!

Ohh when I go to dreamland tonight it is going to be a happy sleep. I know I was supposed to write about a few other things today but I just had such a great day that I HAD to write about it!

Firstly it was Pay Day!! Yeah! My mortgage hasn't started yet so I can still enjoy actually have some money in my bank account. February 1st I start my budget hardcore. Oh yeah...I have a lil time left to buy some things.

Well at work I got a mini treat because I discovered that I won Diana over at Express-O's Heart Necklace Giveaway from Fox House!

I can't wait to get this necklace! It's beautiful! I love the clasp & it's so different! Thanks Diana for running the giveaway! Your a sweetheart!

Then I went to my parent's house for a minute & found out my Mom found me an Record Album Frame. Yes I do collect Old records but only special ones...like the Soundtrack from "The Graduate" with Dustin Hoffman.
 
It has all the Simon & Garfunkel songs from the movie, especially "Mrs. Robinson". How I got this you might ask? PURE FLUKE! I found it at a garage sale for a $1 about 3 years. It's a lil raggedy on the edges but it gives it more character I think. Now I gotta figure out where to hang it? =)

I finally too got my mirror hung up with Cj's help but NOW it's actually hanging straight. I got the mirror from Ikea. What do you think?


To conclude this awesome day I went to Ac Moore to pick up some stickers when low & behold  I found  a print I had been looking for in every Home Goods I could I find. The problem with Home Goods is that NO STORE HAS THE SAME THINGS! I saw this print once & I didn't buy it because I thought it was expensive. When I changed my mind & decided to go back for it, of course it wasn't there. But in Ac Moore I found it.
 
I think it goes perfectly with my Red Motif! =) I love how her dress is flowing. It's the Couture Magazine cover from September 1960. I love it. I'm so glad to have it!

Ah Today Ruled! Tomorrow I'll be back to my posts I promised to do! See you later!
