Happy Weekend everyone.
It has been a week filled with
Spring cleaning, projects and lots of randomness over here.
But we did manage to squeeze in few fun things like
a quick getaway
and a trip to the Hardware store too.
So 3 of my random thoughts are about those.
A dinner date
When my husband is working late, my teenage daughter and I like to do casual dinners
at the island in the kitchen.
We sit and chat about this and that and everything else while eating and it is a fun way
to catch up and spend some time together.
So for Valentines Day, since it was just us girls at home,
she decided we should have a dinner with some romantic inspired touches.
She lit a candle and put the spaghetti song from 'Lady & the Tramp' on the iPod
and then brought out a photo of her latest crush
and placed it on the table so that we could have dinner with him.
I laughed hysterically.
I don't know where she gets her crazy sense of humor (and craziness) from...
but I can take a wild guess.
My husband and I snuck in a little getaway to Napa Valley last week.
Just a quick trip- but so much fun.
I enjoyed sitting by the pool in the warm sunshine & holding hands and relaxing.
And shopping at favorite stores is always on the agenda.
I love a man who can shop in HomeGoods
or at least, who doesn't mind waiting in the car listening to the market report while you shop
for just another 5 (or 25) more minutes.
#3. The Hardware Store
On the shopping note... that man seriously knows the way to my heart.
Flowers and sweets are always nice but the best treat?
He asked if I wanted to go to the Hardware store to find a treat
I know- so romantic right?
To him, 'The Hardware store' means 'Restoration Hardware'
We definitely don't speak the same lingo all the time- but we do understand each other.
So... yep, we shopped 'The Hardware' store.
I might have almost fallen over at all the amazingness that is inside those double doors.
#4. Warm it up
You know how sometimes a winter room feels chilly,
and it isn't just because the temperatures are colder? There is just something missing and you need something to warm it up, and it isn't the throw on the sofa.
Sharing 3 ways to warm up a room that are inexpensive & easy
and that get you moving a bit.
Five SECRETS to flower bouquets
YES, those pretty green hydrangeas are blooming
It has been nearly 2 weeks and they are blooming just like they were brand new.
I did re-cut and re-dip their stems when they started to wilt but it worked.
And this week over at Ebay, I am sharing a few more flower power tips in my
Some of them are things you probably already have in your house.
Okay, enough randomness for today but come back by tomorrow for a
French inspired post
and next week~
I will be sharing one of those HomeGoods finds
that isn't what it seemed when I purchased it
and more kitchen details.
Happy Random Saturday everyone
