Dreaming Up My House

With no job, and no hobby (yet) I find myself wasting time away on the internet. That's why it was invented  right? I have decided to share some of my "discoveries" with you and my fellow interior design lovers. Just browsing, and I think I could design my entire house just by looking at pictures. Here they are!

Apparently I like this very light aqua color. It's just so bright and seems to have a very open feeling to both of these rooms which I love.

                           THINK PINK?I'm generally not a fan of pink at all, but there is something appealing about these rooms that I like. I doubt I will ever do anything this bold in my house, but its nice to look at ;D
Who wouldv'e thought pink kitchen cabinents? The chandelier adds a touch of "old romance" which makes the kitchen very feminie
The living room just very classy even though its decked in pink.
Great great lighting through out this house!

Ok now this is AMAZING!!!! I mean just look at it, I think it's self explanitory how great it is. I love the old english/modern twist to it, and the crown molding on the ceiling......Divine!

So I hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as I enjoyed looking and finding them. Anyone want to start remodling your room? I do!

Quick Fix Tip #2
Along with the dryer sheets from yesterday. I know this will help people in Utah a lot more than people in California. Static in your hair? Well dryer sheets get the static out of your clothes, why wouldnt they get it out of your hair? It does! Just take one and run it through out all your hair solves the static problem for the time being. So now with little secrets you know about dryer sheets, maybe every woman should keep a stash in their purse next to your chapstick. A thought!


First Official Post

What do I want to accomplish with this blog? Well there are so many different things I want to do ill see if I can list a few.

Rediscover my passions
Discover new passions
Keep my mind off of other things
Have a positive escape
Dwell on the future not the past
I want to start really cooking and prove it
Share things I love with others
Help people?

    Ok so some of those sound a bit odd and how could a blog accomplish those. Don't doubt me and I'll show you :D I'm not an eloquent writer and maybe I'll get better for your sake (and to make me feel smart), so I apologize ahead of time. The title of my blog is actually significant believe it or not. I love rain, its pure bliss, and the way the rain falls whether it's a thunderstorm or just a sprinkle its so graceful. Running or walking in the rain I think about my worries, my hopes and dreams, lost opportunities, challenges, whatever I want. Through all of the heart ache I may bring back up through my thoughts it never seems to matter because the rain makes everything better. You could maybe say the rain is my shoulder or lean on or my gospel (its not literally), I know that life will go on in the rain. Believe me I have thought about living in Washington state multiple times, maybe in Seattle? So hopefully I answered a question or two some of you might have.
     With one of the things I want to accomplish; helping people, I know that sounds odd, but only in very small ways. I want to dedicate this part of my blog to my wonderful cousin Summer Florence. She truly has always been a great inspiration to me. Always there when I need her and always wanting to put me in a better mood, I am truly indebted to her. I've decided to "repay" her. At first she may think I'm crazy but she'll laugh I'm sure (I hope). I would consider myself a more logical thinker than her sometimes which is one of the reasons we get along so well because she's book smart so we even each other out, it's great. Sometimes she asks questions that I have to laugh at because I think they have easy answers. Well through the years I've learned that in reality I am the crazy one and others ask these questions also, so what I plan on doing is just sharing my "quick fix tips" as I like to call them. Maybe I can actually help instead of laughing this time? I'll start today!
Quick Fix Tip #1
Who doesn't use deodorant? I know all of us do, I prefer to use Ban's shower fresh (thank you Morgan and Summer), its a solid white kind. I don't like the gel ones, too messy for me. Often I wear dark colored shirts and make the mistake of putting on deodorant before I put on the shirt. The result, a lovely, very noticeable white mark on the sides of my shirt. How do you get it off? EASY! Like owning deodorant, you may also own dryer sheets you put in your dryer. Just grab one and rub it continuously over the spot on your shirt, its not a perfect fix, but not one your co workers will be staring at all day. TaDa!

Hope you have enjoyed my first official blog and I hope you keep following. I promise I wont let you down, who cant use a quick fix tip?
Thanks everyone for inspiring me,
