canton tid bits...

so today me, Kels, Kenz, and Britt adventured on a day trip to canton. it was an absolute blast with inspirations everywhere you turned. i picked up a couple things along the way and most importantly a couple ideas for a future apartment... here is a tid bit of some of the things i found along with some fried pie, kettle corn, and corn dogs...

i decided i am going to start collecting all of my wine corks and eventually get a large antiquish frame to make a cork board with them...clearly i have a ways to go...

just loved these little glass bottles with flower corks...right now its just decoration...but someday i want it in my kitchen for olive oil, balsamic, ect...

i bought this bird cage and just hung earrings on it...still debating exactly what i want to do with this...

i found these little letters from this photographer artist and they say things like is "the day of salvation" 2 cor 6:2 of Ii is for in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. proverbs 3:6 so i went ahead and got a k,e,n,&,i

i'm just a sucker for these chandeliers and very feminine bed set ups

alway looking for fun ways to organize...

who wouldn't want to drink a espresso out of one of these cute cups?

i just loved these place setting with the simple white and sea foam green accent.

a tid bit of life as a hunting woman...

So this weekend my Baby and me went on a little adventure to South Texas to do a TID BIT of hunting for the last weekend of deer season. We enjoyed some early cold morning siting in God's nature and some relaxing afternoons picnicking by the lake in 78 degree sunny weather. Overall, an incredible adventure to add to our book of adventures.

A Tid Bit of Cooking

So I have been on a serious dry spell of cooking. I absolutely love cooking, but have just let myself get to busy to make time to enjoy it. So today i decided to cook a feast! I invited a couple of friends over and went to work to make these delicious grilled chicken skewers with a bbq honey glaze. I also sautéed zucchini & squash with spices, made homemade twice baked potatoes with chives, bacon bits, & cheese, and cooked some delicious rolls. It was wonderful to take the time to cook for friends and enjoy great conversation and a hearty meal. I have decided to make sure i cook at least one fabulous meal a week for someone else.

Cowboy Boots.

I love Cowboy boots. Seriously I believe they are the most comfy shoes ever, love the rustic look, they go with everything, add a little height, can withstand any activity, great decoration on my bed headboard, remind me of my ranch, and I feel prettiest in my cowboy boots and a flowy dress. My 2 pairs of boots now were oth bought used and now have a zillion holes in them and most of the coloring has been rubbed off. But nonetheless i am still obsessed. I currently am looking for a new pair of the perfect boot and just do not even know. I will probably never buy a pair that is not brown because i just love that look! But wearing my cowboy boots is a Tid Bit that just makes my day a little brighter!

Rustic Romantic.

So I am ready to move somewhere new and be able to full out decorate my house. I have always wanted a very Rustic Romantic look with a Tid Bit of French influence. These two rooms are my current inspiration.

Shabby Chic Charm
With a luxurious mix of lustrous vintage fabrics and antiques, this room has been transformed into a Victorian fairy tale.

Feminine with an Edge
An arch built into the original brick wall serves as a "canopy" of sorts for this iron bed. Pieces such as a small chandelier, dressing table, and chaise act as feminine counterpoints to the rustic brick wall.An arch built into the original brick wall serves as a "canopy" of sorts for this iron bed.

Tandem Bike.

So this is a little Tid Bit I want...I have been dying to get one of these cute old fashion Tandem Bikes to brace the streets of college station for centuries. I have wanted one for forever and am really tempted to get my boyfriend one for our 3 year anniversary except for the fact I think he would know it was a present more for me then him. If he were to pick on out, I am almost definite he would go for this speed racer tandem bike, which i am just not so sure i want to be sported on unless i had a Harley Davidson leather jacket and bad A helmet or if i was Lance Armstrong and could pull something so slick off.

So kenz and I were discussing the other day how we feel as though we are kind of "average" people. The feeling that I have never been all that great at any certain thing like sports or never found my nitch in art or drama. I'm kind of all over the place. I enjoy a variety of things from outdoor adventure sports to photography and art, but i'm not necessarily that great at any of it, i just enjoy al of it. I love going on amazing long runs (especially in the rain, and especially through the mountains in Colorado) and spending time alone in prayer of getting to release built up emotion, but i hated competitive running. I love photography and have taken a couple different classes on it, but just enjoy it for my own display as well as my random paintings i'll do. But the weird thing is that I would describe myself as a passionate person, but when i ponder what i am passionate about it all has to do with traveling, experiencing new adventures, and my love for people and to seeing the Power of God in the lives of people I surround myself with. But what about the everyday passions and that just make every day Tid Bits a little brighter.

1. Belgium Chocolates. When i was there last summer i seriously had at-least 20 a day all of which were never the same because i swear chocolate makes you happy and the Belgium people know how to do this even best, even better than Heresy. Chocolate stores are my favorite places in the world! If i were to ever open my own store, I do believe this would have to be it. Even the picture below just makes me so excited with all the chocolate options.

2. Amazing Food. And trying new foods that i never have before (especially desserts). Amazing food is just a passion of mind. I love cooking good food, but more than anything i love eating exquisite food. This is something I love so much i hope some day i will have a whole blog devoted to it. In fact, i want to make a blog divided into 2 sections: cooking theses amazing foods and exploring every restaurant i go to and documenting my experience. I LOVE food.

3. State fair of Texas. And pretty much all theme parks because i love a little thrill & adrenaline! I have been riding the biggest roller coaster since i could walk. I would wear huge platform shoes so i could be tall enough to ride all the rides i want. I am an absolute adrenaline junkie: skydiving, cannoning, you name it and i probably have done it or am dying to.

4. A frozen DP. But it has to frozen to perfection. I mean this is an art.I have had my full share of explosions over the years, but when the freezer gets a DP to the point of soft flakes, I am the happiest girl in the world! Add a little piece of chocolate to the mix wala...i experience a little piece of heaven.

5. Park Days. Had one of these the other day, but nothing seems to make a day better than being able to relax in park on a beautiful day with a good book or a bosom buddy. This is one of my favorite things about Europe because literally the parks are full of lovers and friends relaxing and enjoying the day just like in this picture.

Well here are the 5 things of the day that truly bring me a little Tid Bit of Joy!
(More to come...)
