There is only one thing I find more frustrating than shopping for jeans or a bathing suit and that’s shopping for a rug. Most of the rugs in this house have been moved around more times than I can count.
So let me ask you a question, do you have the tops of your kitchen cabinets decorated or do your cabinets extend all the way to the ceiling? The tops of the kitchen cabinets in my house have been decorated for a few months. I know it’s popular right now to have the kitchen cabinets go all the way to the ceiling. But I only have a handful of friends that actually have a set up like that in their kitchen.
It’s been my practice around 3 or 3:30 most days I’m home to take a rest break. Nothing major, just a 15 or 30 minute break where my phone and computer are out of reach. Most of the time I’m making healthy choices on these said breaks. I’ll have hummus and veggies or a piece of fruit. But there are some days that I just want to feel indulgent so I’ll have a raspberry iced coffee and something sweet.
The Thursday before last, I spent the day shopping at an estate sale with my mom. We found a few smalls and two pieces of furniture. I painted this dresser and mirror a makeover in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint French Linen. The smalls I found are amazing. This sale was one of the best they’ve ever had but the competition was fierce.
Welcome to the Something to Talk About Link Party! I hope each of you had a Happy Valentine’s Day and your entire weekend was filled with lots of love.
With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I could not imagine a more fitting post than this one with wife, mother, author and friend Kimberly Clair. She helped me celebrate Valentine’s Day last year and since it was such a big hit, I asked her if she would come back for an update and she said yes!
It’s been one of my February baking goals to learn to make scones. S goes to Starbucks almost every morning on the way to work and without fail I am regaled with tales of their Cranberry and Orange Scones.
