Andrea's Attic GIVEAWAY!!

I was blog hopping one day and discovered Andrea's Attic. Andrea is a sweet, southern gal who blogs about newlywed life, DIY projects, and life in general. She's only been blogging a couple of months and already has 50+ followers! YAY for Andrea!!

To celebrate her success, she's having a GIVEAWAY. Ladies and gents, this is F-R-E-E on your part. Go check out her blog. Then leave a comment, become a follower, and/or post about the giveaway, and you are entered to win a pretty awesome, hand-painted sing!! How cool is that!? Let me know what y'all think!

The only question I have for Andrea is…Is Oklahoma really considered a part of the South?! :)

My Little Life

1. What's your guilty pleasure[s]? (I added the "s!" -lydia)
Blue Bell Banana Split Ice Cream. A mani/pedi. KitKat bars. (Yes, it's plural, because I can't stop at one!)

2. What is your favorite TV series? 
On which network?? I work nights at a hotel which means I "watch TV" online while folding about 300-400 towels. I rarely watch shows on the actual television. The TV is usually on ESPN…I wonder why. :)

I'll break it down by major networks:
NBC: The Office; The Biggest Loser is #2.
ABC: Grey's Anatomy/Private Practice (PP is a spoof of Grey's so they're somewhat the same…); Castle is a close second. 
CBS: NCIS/NCIS:LA (Spoof again.); The Good Wife is becoming a fave too. 
FOX: House; Bones is a runner-up.

BUT! If I MUST pick only TWO of my all time favorites, they would be…drum roll, please….Friends and Gilmore Girls!! Before we had cable we always had one of these in the DVD player. We can quote every episode! It's sad when we refer "real life" situations to a Friends or Gilmore Girls episode. :)

3. Can you speak any foreign languages?
Define speak. 

I can speak Spanish, and then I would be laughed at by the entire staff of the local Mexican restaurant! 

I can speak a few phrases of French. I usually butcher them, and Mom corrects me. (For an Italian lady, she pulls off French pretty well. :) 

So if you mean speak as in blurt out a few phrases and maybe a sentence or two, then yes. If you mean speak as in hold a conversation with a native speaker, then no. Heck no. But I can charm them with my smile. :D

4. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
I actually went to my closet to count! Not counting flip flops, (are they really shoes anyway?), I have about 30. Not too bad for a shoe-lovin' lady! Jared does his best to keep my shoe collection under control. But even he can't resist a good sale. :)

5. What's your favorite kind of M&M's...peanut, almond, straight up regular, etc.?
PEANUT!! Love 'em. Then plain or "straight up regular" (<---I like that!). Then probably almond, I don't think I've had them, but I like love almond Kisses so I'm sure I'd like almond M&M's!

First Project. Many more to come!

I found a wooden trash can at Hobby Lobby for $5. Pretty blah, eh?

I spray painted it Espresso. This was taken before I applied the second coat. Two coats were needed to cover it well. 

I bought a cheap wooden fleur-de-lis applique. I painted it white and attached it to the trash can with Gorilla Glue. (Love that stuff!!)

And voila! Super cute, super easy. That's my kind of project! :)

"I'm ready for my close up, Mr. Demille."

I'm very happy with my lil project.
