Hi before I begin someone just this morning made me aware of my name being in the hat for “best home design blog nominations”…..I am soo excited and honored! If you care to vote, it would be amazing to get your vote!! Click here. Thanks everyone…… Hi there, hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Ours was actually quite relaxing, my son got home from snowboarding in Utah…phew! I was a nervous nelly all week long with him being gone and when he sent me a few pictures on the iPhone showing me the mountain…I said do not even tell me you are snowboarding on that cliff, (it was a vertical cliff I kid you not) and when he answered yes, is when I went into serious panic mode. Thankfully that was Friday with just one day left on their vacation. So…now I am much calmer. They got home yesterday he is home safe and sound…yay! Anywho, did anyone watch the Academy awards? I must confess I do love watching all the pre shows, normally watch a bit of the actual awards show but rarely make it through its entirety….so long! I was a little disapponted in the fashion choices, saw only 2 or 3 that I really thought stood out and looked fabulous. Last year I thought there were so many prettier looks. This year I found myself saying over and over (to myself) ” with endless resources, thats the best you can do”! But in honor of the awards, here’s our little scenario. venturing a little off track fom the world of decorating but this isn’t a script!
