Traffic School & the Future.

So. It's been a while. And I have nothing really to show for it. Except that I officially finished Traffic School (online).
[Traffic school is not fun. And it consumes your life. Don't ever get a ticket.]
Although, I have so little to show from it in productivity, it has certainly been an interesting week or so. I've learned a lot about myself. But first, my creative moment that I'm so proud of!

I went to DI in search of picture frames. [they have great frames for super cheap! And they have cute old school ones, so of course I had to buy a couple.] Anyway, I ventured into the back on a little adventure and wouldn't know you I found a treasure! It is a vintage suitcase, avocado green. My friends laughed when I said I was buying it. They couldn't see it's potential as I did. This is the end result:
I am happy to have it sit on my dresser. I love it. And I love even more that it sits next to my Family: A Proclamation to the World.

{Also, this is the 5th or 6th time I have started this post. So I have a completely different topic now and no segue-way}.

I was thinking a LOT about my future lately. 
[sometime soon I will post my exciting news! Just not now; I'm still digesting it myself!] 
Last year, when I was a RA, and we did an exercise where we had to lie down and completely relax.
[when you are with a bunch of friends who are all doing the same thing, everyone just laughs and it can be really difficult!]
So, you lie down and completely clear your mind [blah blah blah. All that relaxing stuff]
Once you are completely relaxed the lady starts telling you to imagine it is 10 years down the road and you are just waking up. She guides you through a whole day of what you imagine your life to be in 10 years. I have to say that I absolutely loved it. I won't share allll my details but here's a look at what I hope my life is like:

[I could describe exactly what my room would look like but A. boring for you and 2. kind of weird if I did that. I will show you a picture of the kind of bed I want to make that I want, though.]
My bed
And I want to be living down a dirt/gravel driveway on a couple of acres of land. With a gorgeous old barn and a beautiful meadow for my horses (one will be a frosted roan).
 [Yes, I am a country girl. And I love every second of it.]
We'll have a beat up old pick up that is more work than it's worth. And dogs and kids running around. And out back a tire swing on an old tree with my garden. 
I can't wait to have my garden. 
I can already picture it.
One part for vegetables [squash, zucchini, tomatoes, snap peas, carrots, pumpkins, asparagus; my mouth is watering with the possibilities!] and the rest for my flowers. 
Currently, I go to boutiques and antique shops looking for the kinds of old things I will put in it. 
Anyway, I can basically picture my entire house as I go about my life of feeding the horses and the dogs, watering the garden and the lawn, doing laundry, making meals, making cute crafty stuff in my own little room where I can quilt and scrapbook my little heart out, probably working if the kids are older, and giving my handsome husband a kiss when he gets home from his job. 
Yep. This may sound like a ridiculous life to some people but I can hardly wait. 
So, that's what's been on my mind. What's on yours?

  1. And of course, grandma lives close enough nearby for weekly visits [not too close, so that you don't tire of her and start pretending you're not home even though she sees the old pickup in the drive and knows better] and she spoils the grandkids. Grandpa like to come over and do fixer-upper projects, cause everyone knows he has adult ADHD and can't just sit and visit and be happy about it:) Secretly he mows a little section of grass and practices his golf swing and putting...Grandma is a little frustrating though, because she comes over and messes up your kitchen baking for the kids and leaves you the mess as pay backs....I ♥ it!
