Doctor's office magazines

So, I've spent the better part of the last two days asleep on my couch. I have a bad sore-throat and feel achey all over. I finally went to the care now last night because it didn't seem to be going away. After a couple hours there I was told that I just had a bad cold that could last 7-10 days and there was no medicine to cure it just some to help with the pain of my sore throat and help me sleep... great. At least they had some good magazines to read while I was waiting to see the doc. Here's a couple interiors I liked out of the Feb issues of Country Home and House Beautiful.

This last photo looks like a fun table-setting for a sweet Valentine's Party. I like the idea of using those industrial looking garden chairs along side the fancy chandelier and candlesticks.

Wild Berry Zinger

This morning I woke up with a scratchy throat.
I hope I'm not getting what Randall had last week.
Anyway I'm now enjoying a nice cup of tea - with a little honey... for the throat right?

And see those darling little owls in the background?
They are salt and pepper shakers
From one of my favorite etsy stores, High Street Market
If you don't know what etsy is you must go there now
They sell anything handmade or vintage that you could imagine
It's fantastic
But beware, you could loose hours of your day searching for goodies!

New nightstand and a clean room.

Exciting Friday Night...

I know, I know..... it's Friday night and I'm blogging! Randall & I just had a quiet night-in tonight. We are so busy usually that it's nice just to stay home and relax sometimes! So this is what we did:

I baked sugar cookies. Mmmm
Baking is therapeutic.
I bake while singing along to good music (specifically the "Glee Cast" station on Pandora).
I am making heart shaped sugar cookies.
The plan is to bake them and then freeze them so when Valentine's Day comes around all I have to do is thaw and decorate them- the fun part!
My favorite recipe is one from my Aunt Claire - they are the best Sugar Cookies! I think the magic ingredients are the sour cream and nutmeg. I might just have to bake a couple and test them out tonight!

And.....Randall slept. He's been sick all week and is still not fully recovered. He did manage to watch an episode of his favorite show Project Runway first :)

New Plan

I have a new plan for my blog. This new plan came about because of a couple facts:

1- I am horrible about updating my blog
2- I'm not a good writer, nor do I enjoy it
3- My camera is still not fixed
4- I jumped on the bandwagon and got an IPhone, and it has a handy little camera app

So the new plan is:

Take at least one picture with my phone everyday and upload it to the blog with a few words... or not (because a picture's worth a thousand words right?). I think this might be fun way for me to document details of my day whether big or small. So that's it! We'll see how it goes. Wish me luck!

I'll still do regular posts now and then if there is something I want to go into more detail about. Also Randall & I hope to start doing some more updating to the house soon that we have been procrastinating on, so there will be some more house posts too!
