Three Things Thursday

April 19, 2012 · 40 comments

1. Guess who is a huge space cadet?

This girl. I am. And I feel like a great big jerk.

I’m really sorry… I totally tried to quickly write up Monday’s post, failing to correctly set the random.org parameters to select a Sharkies giveaway winner. Sam was the sweetest person alive after I explained apologized profusely, and she will be getting some Sharkies samples in the mail to make up for my mistake (thank you time a thousand to Lauren at Sharkies for coming to the rescue)! I’ll be making it up to sweet Sammy in the future, cause she’s a dollface.

So, I need to give the other 289 entries a fair chance to win.

It looks as if it is Heather‘s lucky day! Heather, my dear, you are the winner of the Sharkies gift set (for real this time, I promise). Hopefully, these come in handy for your new training plan! Look for your gift set in the mail soon.

2. I have a new homepage.

My friend Anna sent this to me, and it has provided me with such immense happiness for these days I can’t actually run.

he’s perfect.

I mean, COME ON.

3. I always feel guilty when I’m on a redecorating mission and use Pinterest for all my finds. Remember that time I pinned about 56 throw pillows and made your feeds a pillowy little heaven? Sorry about your feeds, guys. You’ll be seeing some more of my home good pins all week.

I’m on a mission for a new bedroom color scheme. My comforter has seen better days, and I find myself wishing I had the funds to indulge in these beauties:

I am swooning over that top one. I’d do manual labor to make that duvet cover mine.

via

via

I need to find a pretty gray comforter to match my color scheme. I’ve already starting piecing the rest of the room together…

Bet you can’t guess what my color scheme is.

So, who wants to donate $250 to Alyssa’s Comforter Fund?

Three fabolous things… oh Ryan. He is so sweet. LOL.

If you got that duvet cover, you would never leave your bed.

I’ve also been going crazy for the last quilt you have on there – not so much the price.
BUT! I did find a tutorial for it :
http://kojo-designs.com/2010/12/kojotutorial-anthropologie-inspired-knotted-bedding-part-1-making-the-knotted-squares/

It looks time consuming, but inexpensive and not too complicated… I can’t decide if I’m brave enough to try it!!

HA! I am in the process of trying to be pin-spired by pinterest bedrooms too. I’m considering doing slate, gray and yellow… but we’ll see it. I LOVE the 2nd option but I’m afraid my husband would veto it :(

I actually rarely like furnishings I see on pinterest! I always end up pinning my own I find from various websites.

I’ll take Ryan Gosling over pillows any day. Or Ryan Gosling with a pillow. Or…what was this post about again?

Comforter mission over here too! I am just not sure what color to get, I love the ones you have here, I actually posted a couple of those on my blog too! Same taste!

Seriously this room decor planning is like wedding planning for me, not as stressful though ;)

wow that first ruffle comforter is the bomb.com. I don’t blame you for wanting to do manual labor. I will do it with you so we can both have one. But mine needs to be purple I think.

Can’t wait for my Sharkies samples! :) Too too nice, you guys didn’t hafta do that. Thanks to Lauren, too!

Ummm and I dunno if you have seen my decorating Pinterest board lately, but I am addicted to grey/yellow schemes. Definitely doing that when I get a place…the bf will have to deal, I don’t think its TOO too girly!! Well, maybe the ruffles….which I LOVE on that comforter. I think I actually have that pinned, too.

I LOVE the grey and yellow scheme TOO! I’ve been trying to gradually add in those colors to our bedroom. Target has a cute quilt that I want to start with and then get some yellow accents.

I want to do grey and yellow in the bedroom and grey and teal in the livingroom. I just need to find THE perfect grey slipcover for our couch. Let me know if you see one while you’re looking :) They are suprisingly hard to find…

I already have a gray slipcover on my living room sofa, actually! my mom got it for me for Christmas. maybe she’ll read this and tell ya where she found it. ;)

My wedding colors were yellow and grey…so pretty much now my whole life is. When I where clothes that have yellow and grey in them my friends always tell me I look so wedding-y…and, yes, I love it!

K so I can’t remember on which post you talked about where to go get a skin screening so I’m just gonna straight up ask you…where should I go to have my skin checked over? I’m super fair and have always kind of had “birthmarks” so I should probably get checked out. Please and thank you!

I’ve been in love with that ruffle bedspread on urban outfitters for a while. I’m not getting a new bedspread until my dog decides not to tear up my bed. So maybe in 10 years. :)

PS I love your graphic with the arrows. Cute!

PPS The missing toenails RG is pretty much the story of my high school boyfriend. He would get a kick out of this. We ran together all the time and he always loved my nasty ass feet.

Those comforters are to die for! It’s absolutely awesome looking, though I have no use for one now :) Doesn’t mean I cannot admire the beauty. Gray and yellow is always pretty, not sure if it’d look better with yellow as the primary and gray as the secondary though. The other way is a bit “modern”

I’ve been having comforter lust lately too. I’m moving next month and I’m going to have to decorate!! I think I need you and your expert eye to come assist me. And maybe perhaps I will go get started on a pinterest board for it – who needs to get ready for work?!?

I love all those Hey Girl pictures… let’s face it, Ryan Gosling anything makes me happy! And I love your color scheme! I’ve been working on my own and I love grey & lavender together! I’ve been hunting for the perfect bed spread too and find that they are all SO expensive! I made the mistake last time of just getting a cheap one and it’s so not as nice as having a fluffy duvet! Lesson learned! Have a great weekend!
