Target Cartwheel

Disclosure: I am receiving a sweepstakes entry in exchange for writing the blog post.  All opinions are mine! I adore Target.  I could live there.  Oddly, I was driving in to work today and thought, I think I could only shop at Target for the rest of my life and I don’t think I would ever want …

From Chaos, Order

My hall closet was constantly a disaster.  It is a decent size, a shelf on top and a rod across for hanging coats.  But, somehow, nothing ever ended up hanging on the rod.  It just ended up piling up at the bottom of the closet. The only thing that seemed to function in the closet were …

What I Made This Weekend

People, it was a good food weekend.  And by good, I mean not good for you.  But delicious.  It was the Super Bowl and I had found a couple of picky/appetizer type recipes that I’ve been dying to try. Hawaiian Sandwiches 1/2 lb. swiss cheese slices 1/2 lb. ham slices 1/2 lb. turkey slices 2 pkg. …

My Favorites this Week

I discovered the “Art” category on Pinterest this week. I don’t know why I never really clicked it before, but it’s like browsing through an online gallery.  I love this piece by Annie Flynn.  The picture links to a profile of her on Saatchi. This is happening in my hall/entry closet.  Hopefully this weekend.  Why …

I stumbled upon this beautiful, crisp …

Getting Ready for Spring

In addition to the  extra lbs. I carry around as documented in this post, I have another issue that hinders me from wearing cute shorts and skirts and dresses throughout the spring and summer.  My skin is pale. The color of skim milk is the best way to describe it. Not pretty, milky white skin.  Like, …

Up to Speed

We had a lull in the kitchen action, but there’s some progress to report.  The backsplash is tiled and the crown molding over the cabinets is nearly finished.  Here’s a peek: Not a great view of the backsplash, but it’s a simple white subway tile.  It let’s the granite take center stage.  Tomorrow should mark the beginning …
