Master Bedroom Makeover

Matt and I will be decorating our bedroom soon.

(Not sure why its the last room in the house we are working on???)

I'm having a trouble with designing a gender neutral room. If I had my way it would be Shabby Chic all the way. Well Matt prefers a Vintage Library look.

Do y'all have any suggestions on how to make a Pretty.Relaxing.Cozy.Smart boudoir?

It's raining here in Charleston.
It feels like its been raining nonstop since Sunday. I have the day off and I'm being completely LAZY. Strike that, I'm not completely useless. I have the dishwasher going and already started a Pot roast in the crockpot. Baby steps, right?

I guess I have some decorating projects to work on. Hmmm. Someone come over and motivate me please.

Opples and Bononos

Dear Mom,

If you should have any Spicer Orchard's Apples on hand, we would LOVE some in South Carolina. I need to make a pie but these apples down here are just not cutting it!

Going through withdrawals,

Don't you just love productive days?
I partially documented my day off yesterday. Here is what I did:
1) Got up and dressed.. That's deserving of a bullet point, right? P.S. I love that its time again for black leggings. :)
2) Went to the bank
3) Had a delicious solo breakfast at Charleston Cafe.
4) Went to the library.
5) I felt like I was cheating on my Harris Teeter.. but I was bargain shopping and needed to go to Bi-Lo. All I know is that I saved $40 dollars and stretched our food budget for the month. Yay for Financial Freedom!
6) Got home and put away groceries.
7) Went to the gym and got my Zumba on.
8) After the red pen accident last week, I gave Scout a second chance outside of her crate. After Zumba I crept up to the house to see what she was doing. She was sleeping like a lamb.
9) I made Baked Ziti and a big garden salad for dinner. And I made a second batch and froze it for another date. Stretch that budget girl!!
10) Took Scout for moonlit mile lap around the block.
11) took a bubble bath
12) And finally, started reading Cold Mountain.
As for my second day off... it's basically laundry filled.

I forgot to mention

This has happened before:
She must be a starving artist eating all of these pens.

Crime Scene

I was gone for only 15 Minutes
I worked on the carpet for 3 hours.
She got up on the counter to smell the soup
Found out that rubbing alcohol works best on ink
She knows she was bad. She couldn't even look me in the eye.

being naughty sure does tucker her out.

PS this is post bath.

Hosting a Wine & Cheese Party

With cooler weather I look forward to chili on the stove, apple pie in the oven and a nice glass of Cabernet. I get so excited about putting on sweaters and boots and getting together with friends. Of course most the time our get togethers involve football. Maybe sometime soon I'll be able to convince the hubby to host a wine and cheese party. Here are a couple tips:

Use an Evite to be green and save on postage.

Use this Wine and Cheese Pairing Chart for the planning process.

We have a 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom home. Currently we use one of the bedrooms as Matt's office since he works out of the house. Eventually we will make this room a nursery since I will not give up the guest bedroom. I mean seriously, once we have a baby where are the Grandma's going to sleep? Matt says the couch and I say heck to the no.

Anyways, we do have a very large attic. I just came across this attic makeover on Perfectly Imperfect and I'm super inspired. I love every bit of it. If only I could do the Mary Poppin's finger snap and it be done. :)

Kerr from Say Cheese gave me an award. I wish I had a lengthy speech ready. There are just so many people to thank. But seriously, thanks for thinking of little ol' me Kerr.

So here is what I have to do. I'm supposed to answer 7 things about myself and then pass this award on to other bloggers. Buckle up... here we go.

1) I was born with a pronounced mole on my left leg. Growing up my mom would put dots on all of my left shoes. I was the only kid that never put their shoes on the wrong feet.

2) I break out into song on average 25 times a day. Some of my favorite tunes are from The Sound of Music and Chicago.

3) In 10th grade I was chosen to lay the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.

4) I can do the entire Napoleon Dynamite dance.

5) I have broken my left collarbone twice. Once in 6th grade and another time when I was 22. One time I broke it doing a handstand and the other while I was drinking poolside. I'll let you connect the dots.

6) I eat both Nutella and Peanut Butter straight out of the jar.

7) I am not a picky eater. The only thing I can't stand are Beets. I try them about 4 times a year and I'm disgusted 4 times a year.

Here is the random sampling of people I'm passing this on to:

Hallie- Southern Dash of Sass

Amanda- A Beautiful Mess

Liz- From Portland to Peonies

Sara- A Trice of Life

Diana- ExPress-o

Olivia- Everday Musings

Joan- Charleston Daily Photo

Brady- Brayism (my brother)
