A Week In Review

Hello Again!  Okay, so it's been awhile.  A week and one day since my last post.  Boo!  I ended up taking an unexpected time off for Spring Break last week along with my four youngest kiddies.  The eldest had her spring break weeks ago, she was already back to classes.  I started the week off fine but then by know how the story goes.  Well, now they are all officially back to school.  They went back this past Monday and it's taken me this long to catch up with things.

Let me give you a low down of what has been going on around here this past week.  Spring Break, allergies, design consults, allergies, play dates, allergies, quality time with the family, allergies... Oh, did I forget to mention ALLERGIES?!  Wow!  It's really bad this season.  It hit everyone in our family hard.  ALL SEVEN OF US!!!  And all at different times.  It even hit some of us who don't normally get affected.  It was and still is pretty BAD here.  We are all living off allergy medicines right now. 

Anyways,  I picked up Sabrina Soto's new book- Sabrina Soto Home Design:  A layer-by-layer approach to turning your ideas into the home of your dreams.  Can't wait to read it!  I flipped through it quickly and so far I am liking what I see.  I picked up my copy from Barnes & Noble the other day, but if you're interested in picking up your own copy you can pick it up or order on line here or here.  I was already out so figured I would just pick it up from the store that day.  Plus, I admit I couldn't wait.  Love this lady!  She's definitely one of my favorite designers alongside Sarah Richardson of course.

I also picked up a jade plant from the supermarket of all places.  It wasn't that expensive.  I think originally $2.99.  It was sitting there all by its' lonesome, so it made it's way into my cart.  I got to the checkout and found out it was on sale.  Final price- $2.50.  Apparently it really wanted to come home with me :)  I was totally inspired by these images I originally found on Pinterest {no surprise}.




Right now it's sitting pretty in our master bedroom on the corner of my tesso desk that the hubby and I picked up not too long ago for a steal.  It's still in it's original plastic container.  She is growing nicely but I need to transfer her.  I just picked up the Monogrammed Mug from Anthropologie and was thinking of planting it in here.  I was inspired {yet again} by another image I saw on Pinterest :)  

The hubby and I picked up a few drum shades last weekend.  They were such a deal.  I mean, really a deal!  We also picked up a piece that we are planning on using as a small media center for our room.  I will have to do a separate post on these items though. So make sure to check back here.
