If your name is...

There is a flower shop that we usually pass when we go out for lunch.  On their sign they always put up a name and if your name matches the one on the sign you get to go in and get a free rose.  Well for over 3 1/2 years "Lindsay" has never been on there until today! name is Lindsay!!!  

The beautiful rose I got for free!

Fall into the GAP!

So after 3 1/2 years of not working weekends, most nights and only every other Friday I decided to get a part time job.  (I don't need the extra income but it will help with my shopping habits!)  There was a new GAP store going in not too far from my apartment so I applied and got the job!  (I mean really who wouldn't want to hire me?!)  My neighbor Heather got a part-time job there too, which will be fun!  Last weekend we walked into our store for the first time and all there was were walls!  We helped get the store up in running within a week - getting the fixtures up and clothes sorted and placed.  It was a lot of work, but a ton of fun!  I took at picture of the store the night before it opened to shoppers:

I am really excited to work here, I have met some really nice people and the clothes are super cute!!  O did I mention the Employee Discount - AWESOME!!!  So if you live near Riverdale, UT stop by our new store!  (It is located right next to the RC Wiley on Riverdale Road)  We are going to be having some great sales going on between now and Christmas and is def worth a trip over!  And of course you might be able to see me - so that will totally make it worth it! : )

From the Midwest with Love...

When I was at my cousin Becky's house last week I remembered that she had some great prints from a Minnesota artist, Adam Turman.  So we went and looked on his Web site ( and found three perfect prints for my kitchen!  I have been looking for something to put in my kitchen because my sister said I was too old to decorate with old concert posters - which is what has been in there since I moved in!

The style of the pictures are so me and I love the midwest flare they have!  I went Michael's today and guess what they were having a sale on frames - lucky me!!!  I got three great frames for $12 each (originally $27!) and I think they compliment the prints really well!

Here are some pictures of them:

I love the colors - they are actually my three favorite colors that i have throughout my apartment.


Who doesn't love anything that says "You Betcha!"

If you don't know what Lutefisk is it is a very very smelly fish that some people eat, usually around the holidays.  (At least that is when some people in my family eat it)

I am really happy with they way they look in my lil kitchen - definitely adds some color and spunk!  Please go and take a look at Adam's Web site, he has a ton of great prints!  He even signed the order form to me - def a keep sake!
