Did you know that Random Saturday is a favorite of mine?
It always feels like I sat down and looked back at the things went on this week
and jotted down a few notes about each of them to share with you.
It's just like having a cup of coffee and chatting together every week.
This weeks random post is brought to you by
tips for a french bathroom, a hike in the woods, green shakes
and a fresh bunch of hydrangeas.
They are never out of season to bring in for a beautiful bouquet.
I wandered into the market to see just what they had that might inspire me-
and I bumped into a whole bucket filled with hydrangeas.
I am not usually one who will buy hydrangeas that often- I don't seem to have luck with them lasting more than a day. They start to wilt for some reason. Not really sure why- but if anyone has any tips or tricks- would appreciate them! But for now, enjoying them and hoping they last longer
than usual this time.
#2. I'm on Top of the World
The weather here in California has been glorious this week (sorry folks in the cold)
Lots of sunshine and warm days which definitely spurs getting out and getting some exercise.
This week, we took a drive to a mountain lake to do some exploring
and in spite of all the rain we had a few weeks back- the water levels are incredibly low
which meant treasures were popping up everywhere.
Like a piece of the dock that had broken off that was stuck on a pile of rocks.
And that was wearing the most amazing weathered paint.
Yeah, I tried to talk my husband into dragging it home for a photo backdrop-
but instead, I brought home a crusty old fish hook stuck in my shoe as a souvenir.
Well, almost as exciting, right? ;)
#3. It's Easy Being Green
Did you know that both of my boys are personal trainers?
And my oldest runs an online training program
where he sends me a list of what to work on each day?
He also has been telling me I need more protein - which might possibly be true
since I am a vegetarian and so enter a vegan green protein shake.
A blend of protein with a dash of green superfood and almond milk.
It's my lunch for the next few weeks and it's actually really good.
I shared this photo on instagram of the new camera lens mug that one of my sons got me for Christmas. There were several who were pretty concerned that it was actually
my new lens and it was ruined. ;) No worries.
#4. Winter Blooms for Winter Blahs
You know it's one of my favorite things- fresh flowers.
And I believe they belong in a room any day of the year- but especially in Winter
when it's cold and dreary out- a fresh bouquet is a sweet spot.
I shared a few favorite ideas for bouquets that won't break the bank over at HomeGoods this week.
#5. A Charming Cottage Bathroom
I know, a bathroom is a bathroom is a bathroom, right?
It has it's purpose but it is also a room.
Sometimes, think a bathroom is the most overlooked room in the house from decor standpoint.
Over at Ebay this week-
I shared some of my favorite tips for bringing a little bit of French Cottage charm to a bathroom. Hint- It's easy.
So, there you have it.
5 random things for this week.
Lots coming up the next couple weeks on my blog
including a look back at a big project and more about what it looks like now.
Happy Saturday everyone!!
