dis our guest bathroom

It's a pretty place to take a shower and the only room in the house where you can take a bath. Mostly the bathers have been Angie and Lyla though...
Hope that you get to spend the weekend in the tub, surrounded by bubbles and drinking champagne.

sick tray

Over the weekend I was a little bit sick and was thinking about all the stuff we do to try to make ourselves feel better. The drugs. The voodoo medicine. The Golden Girls.
I heard someone recently when offered medicine straight up refusing saying "Well I figure it's my body doing something to get rid of the sickness, why alter it?" The only drug I don't mind taking is aspirin for the headaches but otherwise I'm not into drugs unless I am working and need them to make it throughout the day like Mucinex but I ain't happy about it. I think it's the hippie in me.

This weekend I had a lot of vitamin c, zinc, elderberry syrup, and immunity tea. Oh and I didn't go out and slept a LOT. And I took a bath with peppermint and eucalyptus and epson salt. I felt a lot better by Sunday night. I dunno if all that helped or my super immune system that never lets me down.

So what do you guys do?

i could do a lot of damage on this site: the laundress

A new feature (which I will no doubt abandon within say, two months) where I will highlight a particular  website I could drop some serious moolah on if Matt weren't watching our credit card bill.

The website must be of a particular interest to myself that may not be of interest to the general public and therefore the general public must be made aware of it:

Laundry supplies and cleaning stuff. All in pretty packages.
It's my bloggy and I'll shop if I want to.

I bought a vexed mirror at West Elm and added it to the office wall.
Lot of shapes. 
Maybe add a little ledge too?

well its definitely yellow

AGH! It's so yellow. I think I underestimated Target's ability to produce a yellow that wasn't attacking your eyes with a wild ferret. Oh I know that side table has got to go and I have a $20 solution in mind but I haven't had a chance to go to Ikea yet.
I was wondering if maybe it was the bright pink pillows that were making the couch look so ferrett attacking/jarring so I tried a few pillow combos.
Number 4 was the temporary winner.  I spent gift card money on the cover and it's staying since the more permanent solution (custom cover) is more expensive and I don't want to do it until I move to the next house to see what a green wall looks like with the sofa.

Have a good weekend. Please stay safe and rodent free.

out of control

Well the tea tray in the office went bonkers. Okay I went bonkers and upped the ante on the tea tray. 
This is what it consists of now. Sheesh.
I mentioned not minding spending money on good ingredients and thanks to a gift card from Am, I did just that. I knew that all I wanted from Williams-Sonoma was food items so I went with some legit tea. Fortnum & Mason who like, cater to the QUEEN of England.
Cheerio and all that crap.
