In 10 Years...

Jesse from Just Flew the Coop posted about the question "Where will I be in 10 years?" and tagged me to do the same. I thought about it all day long and (like Jesse) decided to find some pictures that match the future I daydreamed up.

Ten years from now I will be thirty-one years old. College will be behind me and I'll love my job as a reading teacher at an elementary school somewhere in Iowa.

I will be happily married to the handsome and funny love of my life... who hopefully turns out to be my current amazing bf. ;)

I will live in an adorable house. It may not be huge, but it will have a lot of character. The outside will be painted a pretty color like pink or turquoise... and I'll have lovely white gingerbread trim.

The inside of my house will be my creative playground when it comes to decorating. The wall colors, throw pillows, curtains, and furniture arrangements will probably change frequently. There will be lots of magazines, books, and vintage typewriters. The walls will never be naked. And I'll try to always have fresh flowers in the living room.

My bedroom will be a relaxing place to retire at the end of a day. And I'll have a stack of books close at hand for that time of evening when I love to stick my nose in a novel.

My kitchen will be colorful. Hopefully by then I'll be a pro at all things culinary. I'll bake cookies, muffins, and delicious desserts and cook up yummy pastas, omelets, and homemade pizzas. And I'll do all of that in a pretty, retro-inspired apron.

Somewhere in my house there will be a quiet corner for me to do my researching, writing, and blogging. After trying for many years, I'll have finally landed a publisher that wants to publish my historical fiction novel. I'll be doing lots of researching, editing, re-writing in this quiet corner in preparation for the release of my first novel. ;)

I will have a ghost chair. This is imminent. And if things go as planned, I'll have one at my desk and at least four around my dining room table. I will admire their translucence daily.

Oh, and I'll be driving around town in a '57 Chevy. (Well, a girl can dream... can't she?)

Thanks, Jesse for tagging me. This was lots of fun. :)

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
