Loving it!

Recently we purchased some new furniture (still waiting for our other sofa) but I thought I would show you my progress so far. I love the contemporary and somewhat whimsical look to my now "new living room." I would have never chose a color scheme or furniture design like this a couple of years ago. I guess I can say that I have changed quite a bit.

I love the crisp look to my living room. It is uncluttered and it is very inviting, not to mention very cheery! Every time I see the new vinyl wall art, it makes me smile. I have wanted to do something with vinyl wall art for years, but frankly, I was a bit scared. I can now say, that I am glad I finally took the plunge!

In the first photo, you can see that the wall is a pretty yellow. Again, I never thought I would have yellow in my home. As I get older, my decorating is changing, not to mention many, many other things. Just to name a few, my thoughts, my views, and my style per-say. I am very pleased with the wall art and my living room and thought I would share.

On another note, I am done with spring semester! Yay! I always get so stressed the last week of the semester. I can say that I received a 4.0 for 16 credits/6 classes for spring semester and I couldn't be happier. I will be listed on the president's list this time. I made the dean's list for the fall semester, which was my first semester back in 18 years. I can say that I am happy, but it was a lot of hard work! I am at the half-way mark. I just hope everything goes as planned and I graduate next year at this time.

Have a fabulous weekend. As for me, I have the whole weekend to do whatever it is I want to do. I have not had time like that in a very long time. Cheers, ~Tonya

I love the new room. The mural is super cool. Congrat's on the Presidents list. Doesn't it feel good to be a 4.0! I can relate. I hated getting a B+. When I transferred to the Art Institute and changed my major. They allowed classes I took when I was 18. But unfortunately my GPA back then was 2.10. Real lousy! LOL But I am saving one full year off school. That is 40 credits. So, now I have to get straight A's to bring it up to a 3.5 at least by the time I graduate. But in Graphic Design it is more about the portfolio anyway. It does suck that they only transferred my class from Westwood. Not including the grades. I had a 4.0 there. That would have helped, but I feel great that I do not have to take those 40 credits over. That took half of my schooling off. Saved me about 10k. Oh well.
