back from wisco...and newly engaged!

Alrighty! so, i came back from Wisconsin, which i've shorted down to wisco. :) it was ABSOLUTELY impossible to take a bad picturte of wisco scenery. you could pretty much close your eyes and snap a picture and it would turn out like it should be in national geographic or something. :)

<-- a cute little bridge in stoughton, wi * my fiance robby * me! doing a really bad job of blending in. (semi showing off my ring, hehehe) :)

i met the rest of robbys family and they were all SUPER nice. :) we had an engagement party the first ngiht that we had arrived...that's right. little juliet is engaged! (when did that happen?!!) little robby-kins asked me to marry him the weekend before we left to wisco. my whole family is excited, as am i! it may seem very old fashioned, but the idea of "belonging" to someone, i think is rather nice. :)

we came back on sunday and moved EVERYHTIGN form his apratment to our new aprtment (jsut down the street) i became afussy baby when my wrist started hurting after carrying seom weird shaped couch down a curvy flight of stairs, but we got thru it- thank goodness!

the apartment is in shambles for the moment, but teh other day i fixed everyhtign in teh kitchen to my liking, since i'll probably be the one cooking most of the time. everytime we say, "let's cook soemthgin together" - it's usually me cooking as he sits and watches me and chit-chats... which is ok with me. he fixed his desk and compy. i think i'll break down my desk today and take it over. i'm eager to start working on some new designs! :) i want to get my stuff in tehre too, 'cos, as of right now- i'm feeling like hte place is his entirely. it has all his stuff from the apartment in there and nothing of mine. i need some juliet things in there! soon enough though. :) i thikn we're going to buy a book case this weekend from ikea. i want to add soem cute colorful stuff- maybe soem kipart and hang up a pinting that my friend petey made for me.

well- there's a mini update as to what i've been up to.. for hte few that even actually read this... hehehe... cheers! :)

new place with a not so new adorable face... :)

alrighty, so- i've gone ahead and done it! i've moving out with my boyfriend william! eeeeeeeeee! i can't wait! i'[m so excited for the decoratin' bit, i t will be faboo galore! the apt is jsut right for us i think. it has a big open living room with a kitchen and counter separating the kitchen and living room.

it has a small little patio that i plan to decorate with hanging potted vines and little flowers allover! i want to hang up cute kitchen scenes from the 20'40's in teh kitchen. i already have a valentino one in mind where he's holding up some extra long spaghetti. i have a beatles one that william suggested and i want to type up buster keatons recipes that i have on one of my keaton books... i cant write too much at the moment, but will update with actual pics and all that sort maybe by this week. - theres so much to get done this week- it's insane! aaah! :)

ciao for now my lovlies!

inspiration galore!!!!

this will be a pretty un-inspiring blog, seeing that there are no picky-tures to accompany, but, i'm telling you dear people.. that TODAY, i'm so in love with life and everything in it! :)

...maybe it was the pale young gentleman cd i was listening to, maybe it's teh skirt i'm wearing today... my inspirsation wall at work? myabe it's all the log reading i've een doing on my lunch break... no, it was earlier than my lunch break- it was while i was feeding my two dear pups this morning that i felt so happy. :)

whilse driving to work, i was car dancing and at a red light, i felt the need to tell my boyfriend that i loved him and i sent him little kisses over the phone. cheesy, some might say yes, ut eh! as liam lynch would say, "whateva!" :)

yesterday i also found out soem very exciting news about my sissy.... i hsould spill the beans too soon, so i shall keep quiet.

at work last week, i got a load of free clothes, they were kinda cleaning out and getting rid of a lot of stuff. i grabbed a lot of stuff for my mom and sisters- out of EVERYTHING i grabed, i only found about 6 things for me that i would actually wear and some stuff that i miiiiiiiight wear to one of my motherrs functions, but not exaclty my tatse, but it's "pretty & sensible" something my mother adores.

anway- maybe it was this also that has got me so inspired, after trying on about 50 dresses (keeping the 6) i was itchin' to jsut seriously throw out all of hte clothes in my closet and jsut start anew! my boyfriend Robby was a sweetheart and saw a little "how to" book on making skirts. it has a few simple designs, but it's a cool ook, cos it tells you exactly how to do it, no patterns required, jsut fabric, fabric shears, a tape measure and a sewing machine. i myself have NEVER made anyhtign withuot draping, making patterns, hten making it once more to check the pattern and THEN making the actual garment. maybe that's a reason i've been so horrible about making anything. it's so much work! :P but i'm excited and i'm feelin' fresh and all jived up about this new clothes thing. :)

for the wisco trip...i leave in 17 days!!!! (yikes! gogin to see teh trees change colors for a week and meetin' the mans fam- double yikes!) Little juliet is determined to make at least 1 dress and 1 skirt for wisco. and i think i can take 2 of the dresses i got from work. i want to wear all dresses when i go. i like dresses and skirts, i def have to build my collection! and i thikn i will surely start up on makin' my own collection. hmmm..that should be an early resoultion.. not to spend so much on clothes- i DO have a ton of fabric at home and i DO have 2 workin' machines now... and we ARE (wether the news admits it officially or not) in a recession... yes. this is gogin to be it for me. little jules will make at the least (maybe more, (yeah right!)) items of clothign evry 2 weeks... i mean, hey, i DO have a job ya' know! ;)

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! (that means, total and utter exciting times.)
