About Me

My photo
I'm Morgan Thomas, I am a TCU Alumni, class of 2011 with a Bachelors in science (nursing). I love what I do (I work in an ICU). I am profoundly deaf in both ears with a Cochlear Implant on my left ear. I'm not afraid to talk about it, I don't mind people asking me questions about it. I have been deaf since I was 2 and I hope to get my second implant within this year (2012). I read lips very well and do not know sign language. I am an Austinite, I love the city and always will. I have a younger sister who is nothing like me but we're best friends. I have a boyfriend named Zachary, we have been together for almost two years now and he is also my best friend. I am new at blogging and hope to make this my new hobby.

Sooooo I have been missing in action lately. well there's a reason, I have no internet! It really kind of blows, I think its been about a week now which feels like a month! So once I get my internet back in my apartment I will continue to blog on a regular basis. A little update on my life, I am officially moved into my apartment in Temple, TX. Loving the apartment but not so much living alone plus living alone in Temple. There is NOTHING to do here. So it's definitely an adjustment and not an easy one. I have to stay in the apartment for a year so I might as well face it now and get my habits/routine developed. Besides all that, I am loving my job at Scott and White and the $$ that comes with it. April is almost here, YAY. It is a full month for me and I like that. My boyfriend's daughter, Kenna's birthday, is the first week of April so I am looking forward to that! plus possibly selling my artwork in an art show in fort worth the second weekend of april. Pray for me that all goes well! I will have pictures of that in about 3 weeks so be on the look out. Easter is right around the corner so I hope everyone has a fabulous time with their family and kiddos. Thanks for following me on my blog, it's still a work in progress but it will get there! :)

DIY Throw Pillows

So along with my spankin new couch, it obviously needs some decor on it. I want some nice vintage throw pillows for it. Throw pillows are expensive as hell at the store and I don't want to spend that kind of money. Since I have sewing experience and I can work a sewing machine I thought I should just put myself to work when I have time off from work lol and make my own! I'm so excited about it, I really hope they turn out like I want them to. I saw this idea on Pinterest and I really loved the fabric that was chosen for these pillows so I'm going to go along the lines of something like this. I don't like those pillows that have frilly crap on it or beading decor cause then you can't lay on them, although I know they're not meant to lay on but otherwise they're too fragile. I will post an official picture of my work when it's all complete! :) Btw this is my first picture posting, woo!

Bought my first couch!

I am moving to my apartment in Temple this weekend and am pretty anxious about it. First time I'll ever be living by myself. Plus, Temple is kind of the middle of no where with crime (a lot more so than Round Rock). I hope my door has a dead bolt! Otherwise I have Zach there to protect me :)

So getting to the couch details, I need a couch with sleeper sofa because it's just a one bedroom apartment. I searched on Craigslist and boy do people have ugly taste in couches, it was hard to find one that wasn't like retro or some squash/pea color. Anyways, I found one that was light olive green with micro-fiber suede material, it was perfect! It has a queen size sleeper sofa and is nice and cushiony. I didn't take a picture of it but I will when everything is all moved in! I went all the way to bastrop to pick it up and it was only $195! (Originally like $800-$1200, what a steal!). I was prepping for night shift last night and spent some of my time cleaning and vacuuming it so it's all nice when I move into my apartment on Saturday. I think I'm going to add a mattress topper to the sleeper so it's more comfortable. It was a good investment I made and I'm excited about it. Need a place to crash for a night if you're on a road trip you can always call me! (only if I know you lol) Pictures soon to come!
