A wonderful "guest" Room

So as last week when I showed my Kitchen and Living Room after I jumped on the show us your home bandwagon from Kelly's Korner, I realized that was basically my entire house. Today was the guest room, and then I realized my roommates room can be the guest room! :)

You see, my roommate is totally the most stylish person I know. She can make ANYTHING look great and has great taste and is TOTALLY creative. Once you see my room (read: everything is BLACK in mine) you'll see how we are different. She is amazing at accessorizing and the best dressed friend and roommate ever! Minus the fact that she's 5'1" and I'm 5'7" so we can't share jeans, but we do have the same size feet!

So here's my 'guest room'



This is her bed, she has the cutest pillows on it along with her diploma from college in the frame (that she just got like two days ago! Congrats, can't wait to go to the ceremony next weekend! ha ha) and her lap top is also sitting on the bed. She just has white bedding with colorful pillows. Up close the bedding has some kind of off white dots on it.


Her nightstand next to her bed, along with her mini-walk in closet. One thing I'm super jealous about in her room is she got window coverings up and they look so great!


She has two levels of clothes and shelves in one closet and another closet in our hallway. We are good roomies because we both LOVE shopping and clothes. :)



It's stuff like this in her room that makes it really cute. I love her frames and 'little things' that are so cute and have so much personality.



This is the wall once you walk in opposite the bed. She came up with this little vanity idea herself and has the same white and black chair in our dining room for her chair. She had two bookshelves and just installed a black piece of wood in between them. It looks great and is super useful.

This is the mirror in between the bookshelves in the vanity area. If you look in the mirror you can see her cute bed!

Yup, we've been friends since High School! How funny is this picture. Yes, at my high school we got uniforms my SENIOR year. Annoying.

Here's us today! :) Love ya roomie, aka 'guest room owner'

Photobucket

Know how I said she had the cutest dachshund pups back at home with her parents? Well here's the cutest picture of them EVER. Sometimes they get to come stay with us and it's super fun when they are around.

As for the Counter Burger last night, it was PHENOMENAL like usual. Seriously, if they have one around you, give it a try, you won't be disappointed. I LOVE their onion straws and Mr. R loves their sweet potato fries. I got the Taco Turkey burger and wasn't disappointed. You would never guess cranberries are so good on a burger! Mr. R and I also got a special treat and my Aunt Olie and Uncle Olie Pop met up with us along with my Cousin, Olie. :) It was a great dinner, I even took a picture (shocking) with my wonderful Olie Pop!




This weekend is going to be super jam packed but I'm looking forward to it. Today a bunch my friends are graduating from my Alma Mater and that means tonight I'm going out down in Newport Beach. It will be tons of fun to catch up with everyone, but at the same time it makes me feel old that I've been done with school for over a year. Tomorrow I have 13 miles planned. Hooray! Only a half marathon! It feels good to be able to say that. Then I have my photo shoot with Webbed Foot Photography which I'm pretty much DYING about I'm so excited, and then Sunday I'm going to a bridal shower and church. Hooray for fun weekends!


Also, I'm patiently awaiting my new netbooks arrival. It's so cute and small and I can't wait to show you guys, but I think Mr. R will soon stop talking to me if it doesn't come today. It has been all I've been talking about! Have a great weekend.


xoxo

Niki said...

Cute guest/roomates room!! Sounds like a fun weekend! Can't wait to hear more about the photo shoot!!

Meredith said...

Your house is cute but lacking in COLOR!!! Since I'm guessing you're renting and can't paint the walls, you should really consider really colorful artwork or colorful textiles like throw pillows, blankets, curtains, etc. You need some color!!

Very Homes and Gardens...13; slacker!

I love when my cats sit together and look out the window. Cute pic of the pups.

I wish we would have gone to Counter Burger. I should have ditched the family.

Have fun this weekend.

I'm about as busy as you. We have Angry Toddler's birthday party tomorrow.

I only did 5 miles today... :(
