Life lately - silly and serious

Life lately - silly and serious. Silly First.

Lately, I've been obsessed with all the plants around my house. This one below in particular. I kept wondering why my favorite plant looked so sad. Errvvday. Just watering and watering and wondering, what the heck is happening to this plant. 

Then, I took a closer look. And, this!!!!

Hashtag amateurgardenerproblemzzzzz!!!!

Not only did he (she?) eat my whole plant, he/she then politely peppered my plant with a million eggs. Yuck! 

But now, to kill or to not kill the catapillar - that is the question my friends.  I can't off a future butterfly is what I told myself. But after a long week of deliberation, and a lot of staring wistfully at my sad plant, I caved and bought some organic pesticide. If I want to up my game in the gardening , I must use pesticides.

Then, this showed up on my doorstep right after I got home from our vacation in the rain forest. (Which I've already talked about way too much, but you can read about it here, and here. And oh here too.) Ohh West Elm. How you always read my mind.  

Can I get a green master bedroom makeover please!?! Heck to the yea. 
This might take a while, I wouldn't hold your breath on this one. 

On a more serious note, how about my Fall goals. Oh wow, does Tessybear even know what a goal is anymore! Psh, those are only for New Year's, whatcha talking bout Willis!

But really.  In all seriousness, this year has been a great travel year for me. Which is good, because I got bit by the travel bug hard. But with no scheduled trips for the rest of the year, work, personal or otherwise, I'm trying to buckle down and focus again. I want to learn Español, of course attempt to lose 10 lbs. (When is losing weight not a goal?), and try to finish the house. Our third floor is practically untouched in the décor department, and I really want to tackle the master bedroom.

 Since 2013 is practically over, I'm trying to keep it simple and only pick a few goals. its only acceptable to have 15 goals in January :)

Ok ok. That was all silly. What is everyone else up to lately? Really, do tell. I'm sure it's more exciting than catapillars ;)

West Elm is such an inspiration. I would just love it if they could makeover my entire apartment!

I don't get magazines like that because they don't inspire me... they make me realize how pitiful my decor skills are and how I need to spend major $$ to hire and interior decorator, HA!
I have no goals for this winter (I do have fall goals, though) except to make it out alive. I've heard predictions that it's going to be a nasty cold, wet (snow, yuck) winter and I'm not looking forward to being cooped up at home with a mobile baby. Ugh!
