Anybody have a juicer?  I have been seeing a lot of posts on blogs lately of people talking about using juicers.  I have never had one and never really felt the need for it.  But I am starting to rethink this.  A delicious way to get a full days serving of fruits and veggies.  That's a win.  But having my kiddos drink it up and love it becuase it tastes good.  That's a win-win.  So here's my question.  Does anyone out there have a juicer and use it?  I have no idea where to find one that will really work like it's suppose to.  Plus, I have a feeling that they are crazy expensive. 

Any ideas or thoughts?  I would love to know what you think.

Painted Floors

Loving painted floors...

I really could see myself doing this at some point.  We have nice hardwoods (well, they were nice before our lab messed them up) that will need to be refinished at some point and I could possibly go for doing the painted floor thing.  What do you think about painted floors?  Is this something you would do in your house?

New favorite blog...

Alright.  You have got to check out my new favorite blog.  Not only is there a design element but it's so freakin' funny.  Seriously.  It's called Aestate

For all of you reading or that have read 50 Shades of Grey, you must check out the post she did on it.  I know just about every woman in the world is reading this book.  Frankly, there are a lot of men who should read it...just sayin'.  Anyway, my bookclub recently chose to read this and I'm glad because I had already started.  I had no idea what the book was about, just heard it was riskay.  And boy is it.  I came across the blog post on Aestate the other day and just had to share. 

Click on the link above.  Read it!  Now!  Hilarious!!!

Farmhouse Sink

I love everything about the classic farmhouse sink.  One day I'll have one.  Until then I'll just dream...

West Elm

I just read somewhere this morning that West Elm has a new line with a world market theme coming out June 12th.  So I hopped over to their website to see if I could get a sneak peek.  If it's there I didn't see it but I did see this very pretty blue stripe vase under the what's new column and it's on sale.

Seaside vases - Stripe

They scream cottage beach house to me.  I really like them and they're on sale starting at $6.99.

They make me think of this...

Check out those views!

Happy Friday!

Gray and Yellow

I want to apoligize for the sporadic posts lately.  So much going on working and keeping up with my boys and doing a lot of soul searching trying to figure out which way to go to find a career that I am passionate about.  I know it's out there and I know I'm getting close.  Just bare with me...

In the meantime, enjoy these lovely images of one of my  favorite color trends...gray and yellow.

Union Jack

I am thinking about redoing my boys bedroom since little l just turned two and he really loves laying in big L's bed.  Maybe it's time to move out the crib and move in a big boy bed.  We actually have one under our house that matches the bed we currently have in the room.  Plus, it gives me a good reason to spruce up the room.  I have had my eye on anything Union Jack lately.  Maybe it's everywhere because of the Queen's diamond jubilee.  Anyway, I'm thinking of using it in their room.  Actually I am toying with doing half US and half London.  Who knows.  Anyway here are some fun Union Jack decor images.

There's just something about it that I love.  I'm not going to go crazy and do the whole room in it or anything maybe just one or two things. 

Have a great weekend!
