Chairs, Chairs, and More Chairs!

Hello everyone!

Happy Friday!  It is a beautiful warm sunny day here in GA and I couldn't be happier about it.  I am not a fan of rain or cloudy days (as some people are).  This pretty weather puts a smile on my face!  I should probably move to sunny California since their weather is usually so nice most of the time.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you've probably already seen everything that I'm about to share with you.  I have been on a chair spree lately.  I've been replacing some older chairs with some newer fresher ones that fit my style better.  I wanted to share some with you today.

My latest obsession has been cane.  I received this chair (that I ordered) just yesterday. It is my new favorite!

Materials Chosen for Bathroom Upgrades

Hello everyone!

This past weekend my husband and I went to Floor and Decor and bought the materials needed for our bathroom renovations.

Bathroom Upgrades

Hello everyone!

It's finally Friday!  I think Friday is my favorite day of the week.  We got a lot accomplished this week and I wanted to share some of those things.  We have been updating our bathrooms.  So, in the half bath, we removed the small pedestal sink that came with our house and replaced it with a vanity from Lowes.  It was discounted by over 50% so it fit our budget easily.  We wanted something with storage and more counter space.  So, this painted black oak vanity with marble countertop and undermount sink gave us just what we were looking for.

Family Room Changes

Hello everyone!  

Are you happy it's Friday?  I know I am.  My husband will be home to finish working on the walls in our bathroom.  After our mirrors were taken down (so we could raise our vanities) it left some ugly sheetrock behind.  So, I bought some new mirrors to hang and he is going to repair and paint the walls first.  We will be replacing our floor and shower tile in there next. We will hire someone to do that! Once it's all done, I'll show the pics. 

For now, I've made some changes to our family room that I wanted to share.  

I got a new French style chair to go in front of the fireplace and a new clock over the mantel.

A Fabulous Slow Cooker Recipe

Hello everyone! was painful to see the Atlanta Falcons lose the Super Bowl.  It was SO close!  We had it in our little hands for most of the game.  But, then the Patriots worked their magic and stole it from us!  Yep!  That's what I'm calling it.  It makes me feel better anyway.  I'm proud of our Falcons though.  I'm hoping we get a "do-over" next year.  Ha!  

I have been so busy here at the house that I haven't been able to take pics to share with you for the changes in our family room.  So, I am sharing this wonderful easy recipe instead.  I hope to share the family room later this week.

  We're getting new granite counters and sinks installed in our upstairs baths this week as well as new mirrors (that I must shop for). Our cabinets are getting raised with some carpentry tricks so cabinet painting will also take place.  So, I will have lots to share with you over the next few weeks! 

If you're busy like me, then you probably love slow cooker recipes!  Aren't they the best?  Here is one that stole my heart.  We had it not too long ago and I just had to share!

These are the ingredients you will need.  

pork tenderloin
dry onion soup mix
red wine
minced garlic
soy sauce

Adding French Style in the Foyer

Hello everyone!

Happy Friday!  Are you ready for the big Super Bowl game?  I'm excited about it because my home team is playing in it..........Atlanta Falcons!  We are going to a friends house for a Super Bowl party so it should be fun.  Fingers crossed that we beat the Patriots!  (Sorry to all of you Patriots fans.  I just can't help rooting for my home team.) 

I've been making a lot of changes around my home lately.  Many of them have happened in my foyer.  I decided to part with my painted grey bench that I've had forever for this caned back french style bench. It came from a local home interiors store.
