What's In A Word

Last night I had a group of (new) friends over and we created inspiration boards. Mine turned out NOTHING like I had originally planned out in my mind but, this was the end result. For those of you who know me you know I don't believe in New Years resolutions. However, I always think it's a good idea to step back from time to time and evaluate life. So, I kept it simple and went with the one word trend. Discipline. I don't mean discipline in a meanie pants sort of way, but more in like a gain control sort of way. Like maybe in a buy less shoes sort of way. (Yep, I just said it and will probably regret it!) As we close out this first month in 2014 I hope you have had chance to dream about what you might need in your life. Why? Because unfortunately nobody's perfect. 

Enjoy your weekend!

P.S. Other things that I had intended to include on my inspiration board.

What the above means to me:
1. Be a student again. 2. Keep inviting. 3. Be original.
1. Paint again. 2. self explanitory 3.Save for pool.
1. Only buy what you LOVE. 2. Explore. 3. Bike with hubs.

Note: I used a 12x12 canvas and a few paint stripes (easy!) to create my word inspiration board and picmonkey to create my collage inspiration board.This is a really fun GNO!

And just like that, out of the deep blue sky the shoe heavens opened up and THEY appeared.
If there really is a Shoe God I hope He delivers to AZ.

P.S. I'm pretty sure these shoes are life changing!

The Lucy Redo

And just like that at approx. 11:22 PM Thursday night Lucy's bedroom inspiration was finally discovered. Hallelujah said the decorator (aka me).
Gold, black and white stripes (go figure), balerina pink, with a hint of yellow, turquoise, and brown. 

This will be a very fun project. Can't wait to show you what I come up with.

Every January it seems I tear my house apart, wish I had all new stuff, get completely overwhelmed for a couple days (or weeks) and then dig in. This is the time of year when I want everything to have a place. Perfectly organized drawers, cupboards, and closets sounds so lovely. Boy oh boy do I have a LOOOOONNNNNG way to go. Piece by piece, day by day. :)

Have a wonderful weekend full of adventure, good eats, and if you're lucky...
maybe a new pair of shoes.

Yes It Is!

That would be me lately around this blog of mine.
Still, yes still playing catch up from the Holidays.
Rearranging furniture.
Dreaming of new bedding and chairs.
Enjoying our 72 degree weather.
Teaching. A lot.
And, deciding what I want to do with this so-called life of mine this year. 

Have an AMAZING weekend. 

P.S. Pair one of THESE (yes it's mens) with some rolled jeans and black converse= CCC (comfy casual coolness).
