Stylish passport & tag holders

The moment I got my passport, I knew I had to get a case for it - this way, it wouldn't get all bent up!  So, I came across this cute zebra print passport holder, and the bonus that came along with it- matching luggage/bag tags with my initials on them.  Love it!

My Little Kitchen

My apartment is a rental (for now).  And if you've ever rented; then you know there's but so much you can change.  The cabinets are not bad but, I prefer wood the best!  So, what you see is what I have right now.  My Mother think it's a bit crowed - I say, it's a cooks kitchen and I like having everything at hand.

Look! My new table.

This is my new table and I'm so excited about having it - It's wonderful!  I got it from a thrift store.  It extends out for up to Ten people to sit, and retracts back for a seating of Four.  I can have it just for Ali and I, or slide it out when extra people come to visit.  This is a special table, for reasons that all my Family will finally have a place where we can all sit down at the same time instead of holding our food, and being scattered all over the place.  This table represents that we can now all be seated together.  Now my next problem - I need CHAIRS!!!

Table from Angel street thrift store

I thought about these two tables, but it just didn't work for me.  I did like the oval table on top but when I put a chair up to it, it was just to low; and it didn't seat more than 6 people - remember, the goal for me was to get a table that seated at least 8-10 people.  The table on the bottom was nice but, I couldn't get pass the color. (Check out those dining chairs)!  They were already sold and weren't the right ones for me anyway.

Yankee Candles

I love Yankee candles.  They burn really well and their made of good quality.  I never pay regular price, I purchase mine from: Marshalls or Tj Maxx -  I like the soy ones the best!
