Fabulous Friday



We all need a minute. 

Sometimes more, but we all need to stop and take time for ourselves.  

I know that sounds crazy and impossible but its rejuvenating if you do it.  Last night I needed time.  I was in a mood and no one in my family could do anything right.  After the kids went to bed I went upstairs and got myself ready for bed.  I did a face mask and read my new magazine that had just arrived in the mail while it dried.  After washing my face I got back into bed to finish my magazine and just relax.  I felt better after doing this and waking up this morning.  I had a couple things I had planned to do last night that obviously didn’t get done, but its ok.  I am trying to learn that life doesn’t have to be perfect and crazy busy.  We only get one, and we need to make the best of it. 

Here is a great quote…

BE YOU!


It is simple and when you break it down its easy but hard at the same time.  We all need to focus on what we love, how we act and what makes us unique.  I hug people.  I love to hug and even if it’s VP’s of large companies that I am meeting, I will usually hug them when the meeting is over.  

It’s just me.  I have learned to embrace it and go with it.

Pinterest Designed My Bathroom

We finished the renovation in our master bathroom a few weeks ago.  It’s gorgeous and I am so happy with the results.  This entire process, besides the shower accent (thank Melissa!) came from Pinterest and Home Depot.  Literally, this is a Pinterest Bathroom!
When we decided we wanted to redo the space I knew how I wanted the sink area to be.  (our bathroom has a sink area and then a separate space for the shower and toilet.)  The set up works great for us so I knew I didn’t want to change that.  I had pinned a bathroom I loved a couple years ago.  In looking at my “Master bathroom” board on pinterest I had a ton of similar layouts.  It was very obvious what layout I liked.  Thankfully my husband loved it too.  
We literally duplicated the picture.  Down to the cabinet handles. As you can see the cabinet color changed therefore so did the granite. We started out with the shower area to mimic this bloggers but in the end we changed it completely.  I wish I could meet the blogger that d…
Ten Productive Activities To Do At Lunch (Besides Eating)






You are busy,

Yes, I get that.  We all are.  

But are you using all the time that you have to your advantage?  Probably not.  When you are in the car is your mind drifting or are you being productive and listening to the news, podcast or a motivational CD?  When you are waiting for color to process on your hair and remove the greys, are you sitting there staring at yourself or using that time?  You could be catching up with a friend, working on a craft project (that’s easy to take with you of course), reading a magazine, replying to an email, etc.  You see my point.  There are nuggets of time that are sprinkled throughout the day that you can use to your advantage.  Are you using all this time to make you a more accomplished person?

One of the best examples is lunch.  If you work, you probably get a lunch break.  However long it is, you are still getting time.  Yes, you have to eat, but can you be doing something while you are eati…

Not me!  I garden!

Let me introduce you to my gardens.  I don't count the front yard but I do have perennials in the front landscaping.

This is what I call the shed garden:

Shed Garden

We need to freshen up the edge and add new mulch but you get the idea.  Some of the highlights of this garden are the daylillies by the shed door.  They are stunning.  One is red and the other is purple.  Gorgeous.  The hostas are doing fabulous right now and everything looks so lush.  That is why I am posting these pictures.  We weeded and freshened up on Sunday and I was so happy to see all the plants really taking off this morning.  Derek and I planted 2 new hostas over by the hose and I hope they take off.   I split a hosta by the stepping stones that you can't see in this picture.  I hope that wasn't a mistake and it catches back up in size to the others.  At the moment it is barely above the dirt.

I have new red bees balm against the back of the garage.  This is my second attempt at th…
