We got our furniture at Rooms To Go when we got married. I love the look of it, but is has started chipping after only three years. We are always window shopping for new ideas, and I think next time around we are going to get something that has more of a farmhouse look.
I do love the blue that we have in there right now, but I 'm getting a little board. I found this set at Bed Bath and Beyond. What do you think? Of course I would have to add some kind of accent color with it!
I can't wait to see all of the other Master bedrooms and get ideas!
Thanks for stopping by,
1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?
It would be a toss up between Australian and Irish.
2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, deck)
Absolutely! I can fall asleep anywhere, anytime of the day. I can fall asleep after drinking a double shot latte from Starbucks. I should probably get that checked out. ha!
3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?
I do use public restrooms...it totally grosses me out and I NEVER sit on the toilet!
4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?
That's a no brainer! Hands down, don't even have to think about it....
I would definitely want to be "stuck" with Leo and his sexy brow furrow! hey, a girl can dream right? Although it wouldn't really be "stuck" for me, I would totally be in heaven!
5. Where did you & your significant other go on your 1st date? We went to a sweet little Italian restaurant in the historical part of our little town. It was actually and old house that was turned into a restaurant. We still go there every once in a while!
Have a great weekend!

While we are on the subject of TV, I have a confession to make. I swore that I would never watch these crazy people but a couple of weekends ago I was cleaning house and there was a Jersey Shore marathon on. It was a train wreck and I. could. not. turn away. I even have my favorite characters now! ha!
Thanks for stopping by~

Isn't it so cute? It looks more like a little playhouse that I would have loved to have when I was 5! My mother-in-law is a Master Gardner and her backyard is amazing. I will post more pictures of the little house when it's done and she has planted around it. Saturday night we went to see the Sound of Music musical. It was sooo cute! We went to dinner before the show to Ruth's Chris. I noticed these guys sitting at a table next to us when we walked in. They were dressed in jeans and t-shirts and I thought that was a little weird considering where we were. I didn't really pay much attention to them until one of the waiters went over to get them to sign a plate. I asked my dad if he knew who they were, and he said "oh yeah, that's Jay Cutler, the QB for the Bears". What???? It was 4 Chicago Bears players who were int town to whoop the Cowboys' little behinds, in which the succeeded! So that's my cool story from the weekend. Have a great Monday, I'm off to the coffee pot.
P.S. I wanted to send a shout out to all of the new followers. I love to "meet" new blogging friends and visit your blogs!

1. What is the first nightmare you remember?
The first nightmare that I remember having involved and rocky cliff and a snake popping out of a cave and biting me. Scary stuff, I know. Especially when you're five years old!
2. Even if you're not a sports fan, what's your favorite sport to play/watch?
I LOVE football. I like to watch football, but I really love the season. It starts getting cold outside, it's a great time to socialize with your friends, and it brings out the spirit in me. I am a Cowboys fan, I used to not be, but something about living here for 10 years just brought it out. Cowboys fans
3. If you could pull off one piece of trendy fashion, what would you want it to be (jeggings, hats, thigh high boots, etc.)?
Definitely leggings! I think that are so cute...on other people. I tried some on last Fall and it made me throw up in my mouth a little. I totally disgusted myself! ha! My squishy stomach and big thighs did not thank me for putting them through that embarrassment!
4. Did you make good grades in school?
What do you consider "good"? ha! Just kidding. I did fair. My social life was way more important to me at the time. If i could go back now, I would probably be less interested in my social life and make straight A's. My future kids will not have social lives, they will be geniuses! We will just leave it at that.
5. What magazines do you subscribe to?
I don't subscribe to anything. But I do have my favorites. I can't live without my causal dose of Hollywood trash in US weekly and I NEVER miss an issue of Southern Living. Nice combo huh?
Thanks for stopping by,
I'm also happy that Kelly over at Kelly's Korner brought back Show Us Your Life!! This week is LIVING ROOMS- so here is mine. We have one big room that is our living room, dining room, and kitchen. I have really enjoyed the "open" concept, but I think is our next house I will enjoy a little separation between the rooms :)
This is the view from our front entry.
This is the view from the dining area. In the three years that we have lived there we have collected more and more decorations, definitely a work in progress.
This is from the other angle of the dining room. We just recently moved our TV from above the mantle to the TV stand. It's so much easier to watch without looking up. We got the big mirror at Kirkland's during a great sale and I found the little topiary trees at Michael's for $7!
Thanks for stopping by to see my living room! Have a great weekend!

Yes ladies (and gentlemen, if you are out there). I am talking about the one and only St. Ives Apricot scrub. I am in love. I know, I know, I fall in love with everything. But this time I'm for real. I have recently been trying to convince myself that I do not need $25 shampoo and $70 moisturizer (thanks Mom and Dad!). The convincing wasn't going too well until I stumbled upon this apricot holiness. It's less than $5/ gigantic tube and man alive it works wonders! I know this stuff has been around since before I was a twinkle in my dad's eye, but i have one question for you, why am I just know being introduced?

He got a little closer....
a little closer...
Until finally his nose touched the pumpkin and made it move. At that point Dewey ran in the opposite direction faster than I have ever seen him move! It was so funny. Hunter and I watched him do the same thing over and over for about 30 minutes! He was cracking us up!

Why raise awareness?
~Too many women with ovarian cancer do not get diagnosed until their cancer has spread. Their survival rate is 45%.
~The survival rate improves greatly - to 93 percent - if the cancer is diagnosed at an early stage before it has spread. Only 19 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at this local stage.
~Approximately 75 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage after the cancer has spread beyond the ovary.
This information is from the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.

1. Do you feel guilty spending money on yourself?
Yes, yes I do. I really try hard not to buy something unless I need it. I stress, try really hard. I have purchased a few things for our house in the last couple of weeks. I LOVE Halloween and when they start putting out the decorations I can't help myself. I bought a few things last week and there is one more purchase that I am going to make. I saw this black wreath with purple glitter at World Market and fell in love.
But since it's for my house, it doesn't count, right?
2. How well do you know your neighbors?
I will admit that I do not know my neighbors very well. I was really close to my next door neighbor and she moved away...boo! Since then I guess I have had a little chip on my shoulder. I should probably get over it and get out there to get to know my neighbors better!
3. What age are you looking forward to being?
I am looking forward to retiring! ha! I know that's a long way off for me, but it seems really nice!
4. Do you get excited when the mail comes? Why?
I do get excited when the mail comes. I don't really know why because all that's ever in the mailbox is bills! It's an unexplained phenomenon!
5. What is your earliest childhood memory?
I always think that I remember things, but I think I just remember seeing pictures of things and then my mind fills in the blanks. I think that one thing that I really do remember is my Dad buying me this Barbie that I wanted when I was like 2.
Have a great weekend!

Because of this monsoon that we are having, the normal 30 minute drive took my poor mom 2 hours! So for two hours I sat in my hot garage pondering life. I couldn't use my phone because it was almost dead and I wanted my mom to be able to call me if she ran into any trouble. So I just sat alone with my thoughts. That is never a good thing because my thoughts go wild. ha! I st started worrying about my mom coming in the bad storms, I thought that I was going to end up on that show "I survived". I have been accused once or twice of being dramatic, but hey, I can't help it! I felt so bad that she had to come all the way out there in the rain and traffic because I'm an idiot. ha! She finally got there and let me in and I was off to work in my arm floaties and snorkel. I arrived 2 hours later because the highways were shut down due to flooding. I really did consider turning back around and going home throwing on my favorite stretchy pants and calling it a day. But my conscience got the best of me. I hope your morning was better than mine!

Don't you just love it? It was on sale for a REALLY good deal and we have been saying for a while that we need a new kitchen table, so we bought it! We spaved! In other words, we were spending to save! so we got it home and set it up, then we decided that with the pretty new table, we needed a pretty new light fixture, and new paint, and....well you get the picture. So we spent the weekend arranging and rearranging and Spaving!

My favorite Fall/Winter drink:
I am totally crushing on these boots and trying to justify to myself why I need them. I'm in love.
What better to pair with my new boots than a pair of skinny jeans! Disclosure: I loathed skinny jeans until I actually put a pair on. I love them now. I really only wear them in the cold weather with boots.
