Tuesday & Tony

Happy Tuesday, all!! It's been a crazy few weeks. When it hits Wednesday of every week, I think to myself "I can't wait until next week. It will be so much calmer." I am usually almost always wrong. It is never calmer, it is never less busy, it is never less stressful. When is summer break going to be here?

Tomorrow is a pretty special day. You guys remember my brother, right?

Well, apart from tomorrow being the day that I get my very first iPhone (OMG.), tomorrow is the day Tony turns 18. I wanted to write a special post dedicated to him because we have gotten so much closer in the last few years.

When Tony and I were younger (we are 5 years apart) we were never really very close. We didn't talk to each other much (outside regular, familial talk), we didn't really hang out or play together very much, but we argued a LOT. I have always been very regretful about how much our relationship when we were younger lacked, but I am happy to say that as we both have entered adulthood, we have become so close. I tell him everything. He tells me everything (I think). We talk at least once a day, if not more. We are always there for each other, and we love each other so much. I think that since we both have grown up (I'm not so snotty and he's not so annoying, hehe) we have really begun to appreciate each other. I can honestly say that I not only fully appreciate my brother, but I can recognize the things that make him special to me. I think that is the most important thing to have in a sibling relationship.

Sometimes, when we were younger, we would get into blowout fights (we are both pretty headstrong, and it could get pretty rotten at times) our mom would sit us down and say "you two are all you'll have for the rest of your lives. Get along, love each other, grow up." And that is what we did. Granted, we have a lovely 4 year old sister to share the rest of our lives with, Tony and I have a pretty special bond that can only come from sharing 13 years together, just us. 

Tony, you have grown into such an awesome, special, handsome, smart person.
Happy birthday, little brother. I love you so much! <3

You get away from me.

OBSESSED LATELY. Modest Mouse has always been special to me because their concert was mine and Nick's first date. We saw them together again last summer for our two year anniversary. Lately I have not been able to stop listening to this album, but this song especially. Love.

Enjoy <3

DIY: Apartment Edition

Happy Saturday! I am having a great weekend, so far. I have done a whole lot of nothing except watch almost the entire first season of Desperate Housewives (I'm addicted) and cuddle with the puppies. This week at school was great until around Thursday, and then my kids decided to turn on me. Haha, I'm not sure what got into them, but they were SO hard to reign in on Thursday and Friday. Those two days exhausted me! 

I plan on spending the rest of this weekend hanging out with my fur children and writing blog posts. For now, here's this week's DIY post! 

1. This is REALLY cute. I might even like it better for
my desk at work! The file organizer I have right now leaves
something to be desired. 

2. At thrift stores and online, I keep seeing creations made with old windows.
This could be really cute in the right room! I'm not sure that it really fits in my apartment,
but it's definitely pretty! 

3. Obviously, I have become obsessed with ornate, painted-over frames.
This is super pretty.

4. I don't know that I could pull off a design this pretty with Elmer's Glue
on canvas, but I think it's an awesome idea, and it would fit perfectly on the
frame/gallery wall I am envisioning above my desk in my bedroom!

5. I love this idea. I think I would probably choose a different flower,
or even a completely different design on top, but melty-crayon art is
really neat.
