A day in the life

March 31, 2011

It’s spring break for the little ladies this week so Wednesday turned into their day. As Mon. Tues, Wed, and are work days. Umm. So we took the light rail down to have lunch with Daddy . What a treat!  The highlight? The 16th street mall bus. Ewww. It did may be feel like I missed the old commuting days. Trudging along with all the other commuters. I kind of missed using mass transit you just observe things in such a different way then you do from your car.  It made me miss urban living too. Just a smidge.

If I were to go Urban again. I might do it like Nate and his chic apt in NYC

the whole yard

Yes when we bought our fixer upper and it came with a whole lotta weeds and over grown landscaping. I’m hoping the summer is the year we turn the corner from ugly ….I mean real real ugly to pretty.  Last summer was the summer of removal and this summer is the summer of growth. It all starts this weekend. An PRAY it starts to look like this.

the console

March 25, 2011

The console table is one of my favorite pieces of furniture. It comes in so many fabulous shapes and sizes and can be used in some any different ways. It’s a great piece to put behind the sofa, add light and warmth to your entry way or serve as a place for extras at a big family dinner in the dining room. Here is some fabulous inspiration if you have to doctor up your console.
