I have been married for quite a number of years.  In that time, I can honestly that my master bedroom has not been the haven I dreamed of.  Instead I spent my time and money decorating and improving on the areas in my home that were pubic areas.  The areas that our guests would see.  We don’t always take people into our bedroom after all.  So, my master bedroom took a backseat to all the other endless projects, children’s bedroom makeovers, and even landscaping plans.  Well, not anymore.  I decided to put other projects off a bit and instead work to make our master aRead More →

Happy Thursday!  I am so glad we are one step closer to the weekend.  Aren’t you?  I have jumped in with  From this Side of the Pond again this week to answer her Hodgepodge questions.  It’s always fun to see what she comes up with.  It’s even more fun to see what other bloggers write for their answers.  It’s funny how we read questions differently.  Anyway, without further ado, on to the questions. 1. April is Lawn and Garden Month. On a scale of 1-10 what’s the current state of your lawn and/or garden. (10=a showpiece, 1=send in the professionals). Tell us about any lawnRead More →

Wednesday Wonderings - stuff that's on my mind and making me go hmm...

Dressing Age Appropriate As you may have read, I went to the Round Top Antiques Show this past weekend.  I always have so much fun when I go.  We love to shop, have girl time, and escape our everyday responsibilities.  In addition, it provides some great people watching.  This brings my to one of this week’s I wonder.  Is there an age that a woman reaches where some clothing items are no longer an option for her?  Perhaps not age appropriate?  Now, I am a firm believer that age is just a number and we can hold off aging with exercise, taking good care ofRead More →

Texas Tulips sign

I guess it would be redundant for me to ask you to guess where I went over the weekend.  I kind of gave it away in the title, huh?  Still, I am somewhat amazed.  I have lived in Texas all my life and I had no idea we had a tulip farm.  Moreover, it is only about 45 minutes from me.  Along with the fact that tulips are one of my favorite flowers, this outing was a no-brainer.  So, today I’m going to share with you everything you need to know about visiting Texas Tulips. First of all, you can find Texas Tulips in Aubrey, Texas.Read More →

Hello & happy Spring!  Aren’t you so glad it’s spring again?  I know I am.  I am ready for warmer temps and lots of sunshine.  Of course I live in Texas so that means I’ll be complaining about those exact things in a few short months. Well, besides the weather the change of seasons also means it’s time to refresh our homes.  Bring some outdoors in along with color.  That’s exactly what I want to talk about today.  And get ready, there are lots of pics in this post. So, I don’t claim to be an expert in this area; however, I have learned aRead More →

EI am excited to participate in this week’s Hodgepodge from  From This Side of the Pond.  I haven’t even read the questions yet so you and I will get to go through them together.   🙂  So, let’s see what this week’s questions are.   1. ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder’  What’s something you’ve seen recently that you thought was beautiful? Well, I actually have an answer to this one.  Earlier this week, I was reading another blog and saw that Cassie from hi Sugarplum purchased a piece of art at a charity event.  It was so beautiful to me.  Immediately,  I thoughtRead More →

Hey friends!  As a new blogger, I am learning as I go.  To say there is a huge learning curve is an understatement.  It’s not as easy as writing a post and sending it out into the blogosphere.  Not at least if you want to grow a real following or grow a business.  In order to achieve that you have to play the social media game too.  That alone is a full-time job.  You have to get your content out there and reach a lot of people.  And, you have to do it multiple times a day on a consistent basis. Many of you are,Read More →
