So Many things.....

Hello to all of my Blogger Buds out there! First things first....A moment of silence for the former coach of the San Francisco 49ers, Bill Walsh, who died today at the age of 75.... My dad grew up going to the niner's games at Candlestick Park and I've never been to a game, but my dad raised me right and I'm a niner's fan. Actually my dad and I are hoping to go to a game in November.

Moving on...I was a bit crafty yesterday! I made a memo board for my parent's family room. I've never done it before, and it turned out pretty good. I learned from the process!

I've been helping my parents re-do their family room over the last several months. I made some art for the wall, shopped for accessories, designed the entertainment/wall/desk unit (it was professionally made), and picked out the paint color. It is still a work in progress, but it is shaping up. My parents still need to make the big purchase of the flat screen to go in the middle.

Today I went to IKEA!! I got to go by MYSELF because my kiddos are at day camp! I'm gonna LOVE LOVE LOVE this store when we are building, decorating our new house! I only spent $7 today, but I was walking around the store looking at the prices and literally getting GIDDY inside! I was realizing that with IKEA, my dream studio/office will be possible!!!

TV: HGTV's Design Star....the girl who got cut DESERVED IT! But so did 2 other people who got to stay. I love watching Color Splash, which is the show from last year's Design Star winner. David B. is AMAZINGLY TALENTED!!! I wish I had his artistic abilities.

Oh, I got my 40 min. walk in this morning! BONUS!
That's all for today!


  1. OK you are making me feel bad...can you be more crafty? I wish I had that skill. The kids are beautiful. I think you need to move down here and teach a class for sad people like me with no craft wait I'd rather move up there. I'll keep checking in to see more great ideas.

  2. I love Ikea... so many ideas. I love you parents room. Good work! Nice job on your long walk. 40 minutes is great! Keep up the good work!

  3. Ikea is awesome. We've been twice already


Thanks for taking the time to leave a note!
