Random Saturday

It has been a couple of weeks since I have done a random Saturday post
and this weekend,
since there is so much randomness swirling around-
it seemed like a perfect time to jot some of it down.

Working from bed

I worked from bed yesterday. The whole day.
 I woke up feeling achy, and I knew that I had been exposed to the flu and who knows how many other viruses while at the conference,  so I made a decision to stay in my jammies, put on Lifetime Movie Network and work on the computer from bed.
Thankfully, I woke up feeling much better this morning- 
and I am keeping fingers crossed that it stays that way. 

Lifetime Move Network

Yes, I know. I said it.
Lifetime Television.
Sappy. Weird. Not the best acting many times. I admit it. 
But I can't help watching those movies sometimes.
One after another of the woman who is has a hidden agenda
and the man who falls for her
and the incredible amount of insanity and stockpile of unlikely scenarios that follow.
 So on occasion, I watch and get a cup of crazy for a few hours. ;)

A New Look

In my home and on my blog- a new look coming your way shortly- and I am so.excited.  
I literally have been working on a new design for my blog on and off for months
 and I finally found a perfect fit with a designer
who has been helping me and who totally gets my vision.
She is amazing and I cannot wait to share the new look when everything gets finalized
and wrapped up.
And on the home front- a new look coming here too. 
An EXCITING new look. 
 I was actually supposed to be painting this weekend... but aye aye aye...
a little delay on that  but it is coming shortly.

Lilac love

My husband picked me up at the airport on Thursday and he bought me some gorgeous
 lilacs and roses. I was actually trying to place an order with the flower market for a few flowers while I was at the conference-knowing that I didn't have any fresh pretties to work with when I got home- but I decided to wait until Monday. And I am so glad that I did.
Who can argue with lilacs? Or with sweet husbands? ;)

Pendant Lights

Falling for pendant lights?
Yes, I am. I can't help it.
 As much as I love my chandeliers- my alter ego loves pendant lighting-
like this amazing brass charmer.

And this week on the Style Illuminated blog - I am talking about Pendant Lights in the Kitchen and sharing a few favorites.

That is it for this weeks random Saturday-coming your way next week-
 the next installment of romancing your home
a vision board for my new look
and a delicious and healthy recipe.

Happy weekend everyone.

  1. What gorgeous lilacs! It actually sounds rather delicious to have an excuse to stay in bed all day!

  2. Beautiful lilacs, love the purple and what a sweetie of a husband:)
    Glad you're feeling better and happy weekend to you!

  3. Nice husband! And lilacs, too!!

    The only thing good about the obsession driven lifetime network and probably the main reason I also am sometimes sucked into these films is......think about it, the stunning, gorgeous, fabulous houses these people manage to live/murder/die in. Talk about decorating heaven!! And let's face it, most of the time, we could write the scripts! So predictable and so memorizing and addictive.

  4. Hope you are feeling better, lots of flu around on both sides of the Pond! It's at this time of year that I start to get lilac envy, they are not flowering yet locally, but soon they will be and that's when I wish we had a lilac tree in our garden, the scent is divine and what a great husband you have. Enjoy the rest of the weekend

  5. Junk TV, lilacs from a sweet husband and working in bed-- what could be better? Oh yeah, not being sick. That part sucks buckets. I hope it passes quickly. Can't wait to see your new site! I was seriously toying with that idea because of my mobile issues. But those are getting better. At least folks can find the menu now!

  6. those lilac roses so so beautiful.. It will make home vibrant ..
