The Secret Life March 7, 2011

First of all, I just can’t wait for the premiere of this season’s Secret Life of the American Teenager. Someone asked me what my favorite Guilty Pleasure tv show was recently… and I have to admit, this one is probably it. I don’t know, I really feel like Amy belongs with Ben… but Ricky is starting to grow on me. I can’t wait!

And how amazing is this poster? I LOVE it! The hair, the flowers, the dress!

But anyways, this post isn’t about teen pregnancy… it’s about the Secret Life of my bathroom drawers. Now, I consider myself a pretty organized person. Sometimes it gets out of hand, but all in all, I hate clutter.

Out of the blue, I decided to organize my drawers in the bathroom. It’s been on my to-do list for a while, so why not. Oh. My Gosh.

You guys! I’m a beauty product hoarder! I had no idea. Seriously. Where did all this come from?!?!

It was time to get with the program and clean this up! I am pretty sure some of these products made the cross country drive with me when I moved to Los Angeles in 2004. Yikes! Do I really need all of these itty bitty samples? (The Blue Lagoon ones, Yes. The rest? No!)

I think most of these came in race packet goodie bags.

Silver Glitter? I don’t even know where this came from!

I threw out a whole trash can of junk. Much better!

No more secrets here!

That feels so much better. Tomorrow, I shall tackle my sock drawer. I think it’s spring cleaning time!


Keeping the New Year Productive January 10, 2011

I’m trying to keep my motivation from the New Year going by attacking things that have been on my to-do list for years! One of my most daunting tasks is digitizing my CD collection.

My stack of discs is literally taking over my home office. Every time I back up my desk chair, I hit the leaning tower of CDs. They need to go.

I’ve always had bad luck with CDs for a few reasons:

1.) I threw out all of my CDs in high school when I went through a “I don’t like music anymore” phase. (What was I thinking? They were $24 a pop back then!)

2.) I then rebought all my favorites and then some and brought them to Europe with me… and then proceeded to accidently leave them on a plane in the Frankfurt airport. True story, I cried.

3.) When I went to college, I threw out all the cases and just kept the CDs in big cases. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I can’t sell them to Amoeba.


So now, I decided that digitizing my collection is the best option. All my songs will be in one place, and I can finally clean up my little office corner. But what should I do with my CDs once I’m done? Toss em? Sell them on Ebay? Do any of my friends or readers want them? It’s mostly electronica and punk music (and lots of Blink 182).

Any Takers? Any Recommendations? I need them out of sight!


Weekend To-Do List… June 5, 2010

I feel like I didn’t accomplish anything today, but I guess I did get a lot done…

I love lists…


I did all the dishes from last night’s fiesta… including a whole slew of wine glasses!

I changed out the table cloth to be more “summery”. Feels fresh!

I love the bright colors!

I finally brought all of my cans, bottles and paper to the recycling center. 
The bin had been overflowing for a while now!

I got a whole $2.05 for it all. LOL

The Roomba did all my floors for me. A+ for the Roomba!


I also chatted with my dad and sister for a bit. They’re on a road trip to Chicago today!

I caught up with my mom a bit too! Yesterday was her birthday!
Happy Birthday, MOM!

I concluded the day by painting my nails and watching this…

What a boring, productive and relaxing day!
