About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

I have always wanted to eat dinner by
the fire and have a couch in my kitchen. The
night before my sister arrived I got busy...

The couch was in the living room and the
table and chairs were in the kitchen. Switcheroo.
The tablecloth (quilt) and chairs clash but I don't
care. I can't wait to play games in front of the fire
this winter!

Everyone sits on the couch now. It's the
best spot in the house. The light is incredible
and you can watch and hear the rain! It
works for me.:) Now all I need is two little
"poufies" for drinks and snacks. Love it.

Good Morning Lori
I LOVE your switcheroo. Your table and chairs look just perfect there and your fabric is gorgeous, love the tassles too. I can imagine you all this winter sitting round playing games with your real fire roaring away there. Your couch looks perfect in its new place. I can see Katie and Ruby are already enjoying it being there.
