Am I becoming a Remodelaholic?

One of my new favorite blogs to stalk: REMODELAHOLIC. So many great ideas here! I am hunting for new ways to decorate while spending little to no money. It's fun! I am really loving all of the painted surfaces and the French-Farmhouse-Cottage look, with lots of natural fibers, brocade prints, and ticking. And old chippy garden ornaments. And big candlesticks. And glass cloches. And old botanical prints. And lots of lamps and pillows - I love lamps and pillows! And of course I need plenty of inspirational quotes around, on the walls, on pillows, in frames, etc... Can't wait to see how everything comes together here in our new-old house. It will be work in progress for a while. And always changing, of course... gotta keep it fresh!

Just got hom
e from a Friday night date with my hubs. Went to Green Acres nursery to look at grape vines and fruit trees, then had some yummy pasta, soup and salad at Noodles & Company, then wandered around The Fountains, which is an amazing shopping center just a ways down the street from our house. Rich bought me a new white ceramic mixing bowl (a big one - love it!) at Sur la Table, and Rich scored himself some brown rice miso paste from Whole Foods so we can make more soup this week. Now it's home to relax before we tackle more organizing and unpacking projects tomorrow! Pretty exciting life, am I right?

OK - that's all for today - time to put my jammies on and my feet up... good night!
