November Daze

{taken on my morning walk for coffee}

I swore to myself that I would attempt to enjoy November more than I got to enjoy October. Here we are over half way through the month and I'm left wondering where the days go? If only there were more than 24 hours in a day. What a treat that would be!

I've been getting alot of things done in the past week or two that I've been putting off for a long time, like trying new recipes from Oh She Glows, which has quickly become one of my favorite vegan blogs to follow. I made the black bean & butternut squash burritos for dinner the other night (srsly, the best thing I've ever put in my mouth) & today I'm munching on the brown rice & chickpea salad for lunch. The dressing is divine (& so simple!).

I also installed all the shelving in my bedroom FINALLY! It's so nice to finally have a home for my books. I can tell they're happy about it as well. I've had this idea for years of having white walls, white shelves, & lots of green plants. That dream has finally come to light! I just have to get some window treatments up & then I'll post photos, but here's a little sneak peak...

I have a few other DIY projects that I'm wanting to do for my room before the end of the year. Once that's done, I'll do a little room tour. I wish I could give Pinterest a big high five because that website is truly godsend! It's helped me organize projects & so much more. My creativity has been on overload because of it. If you have an account, add me here.

I am very much looking forward to the weekend. BFF & roomie, Kayla, is turning 24 tomorrow! We're having a fancy dinner at Virago tomorrow night then having a big party on Saturday. That girl has been working so hard this past month. I can't wait to celebrate!


  1. I constantly am wondering where the days go as well. The older I get, the more time flies! It's nuts. I'm loving those shelves! And yeah, Pinterest is definitely one of the best things on the face of this planet.

  2. I just found your blog and I LOVE IT!

    Would love for you to stop by my little piece of the blogosphere. I am doing a fun giveaway here is the link:
