hey there

Sorry for being a bad blogger for the past few months. So, what have I been up to? Well, things have been a bit busy around here. I know that’s not much of an excuse – because we’re all busy! My biggest news is that we bought a house! It needs some work, but nothing we can’t handle. I have been busying myself with home decorating magazines, paint chips, dream kitchens and favorite fabrics. I love it, although the clutter is getting a little out of control.

This past weekend we went up to NYC for my birthday. The trip is deserving of it’s own post. I will try to do that this week.

On to the new house, we are going to clean the house first (it desperately needs it). Next step, we are painting. Then we’ll refinish the hardwood floors. We are going to re-do the kitchen. It needs new counter-tops and new floors. I am going to keep the cabinets and just paint them a fresh color. I love to cook and entertain, so the kitchen was an important room for me. I think I will take before and after pictures. The before pictures might be a little scary though! The former owners had a soft spot for beaches and seashells. I think the previous lady of the house went a little crazy with a hot glue gun and some shells.

I hope all of you are fabulous . . . I’m sure you are! I miss you all!

PS – I saw an old friend recently and she told me to stop posting about Silpada and start posting about myself – it was hilarious. So, if you are reading – announce yourself! We need a girls weekend and we can have it in my new house!
