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!

Currently obsessed with...

Cleaning and purging my nest.
Caldrea Lavender Pine makes it a lot more fun.
My iPhone.
I lied when I said it was just a toy.
I truly do not know what I would do without it.

Mad Men.
So curious about this show.
On hold for me at the library.

New recipes.
We had Tostadas tonight.
Guacamole, Refried Beans, Rotisserie Chicken/Tomatoes with Jalapenos, Shredded Lettuce, Corn and a sprinkle of Cheese.

Ruby Red Grapefruit.
River Star Farms.
The best I have ever eaten.

I am also obessed with cleaning and purging right now. I was looking for red fabic to recover some throw pillow. Great minds think alike! Miss you my friend. We should plan a girl trip to Dallas soon.

Hi Lori! I'm obsessed with white, making different jewelry than I have been making, knitting and clearing out all the things I don't need in my house! I guess the purging part is hitting everyone this new year so far! I love all the photos on your blog!

Jill said...

boxs! Ha!- I'm kinda *not* enjoying them so much though! :) I like your list much better!!
LOVED Katie's comment on "Godiva- not stupid diamonds!" - too cute!
Happy, Happy New year sweet friend!
Many Blessings!

I am obsessed with red too. Did I tell you mom painted my rusty stars on my wall red when she was here? Also I had a red coffee table, she sanded the tar out of it and put walnut stain over the top of it and wiped it off to make it look antiqued. My brother wanted to steal it when he saw it! I wish I would have taken before and after pics now!
I'm obsessed with taking care of Noelle and cleaning and blogging more-being more creative (We will see how long that lasts!)
Love you,

The Country Living photo is gorgeous. I am loving all the red and white too. Right now I am obsessed with tidying, clearing out and getting the house sorted after Christmas. I continue to be obsessed with 'Wicked' and Disney as you already know ;)

Hearts Turned said...

I love these, too! I haven't seen Mad Men yet...been so curious about it--I think I'll have to catch up this year!

Wishing you a most wonderful day!

Those are some good obsessions you have going on there, Lori! For me...it's Hershey's Dark Chocolate Nuggets with Almonds...I can't quit eating those things!

Robin Beck said...

Lori - One of my friends is selling plates like you posted. You can choose your background design and color, and your saying/monogram and color. My girls each designed their own plates and I LOVE them! They turend out cute and are easy to wash (if we have to use them for lunch and dinner) and do great in the dishwasher. Let me know if you want her info. She has some really cute stuff!

What a super fun Post, Lori. I loved all your favorites. I'll have to try out the Lavender Pine.
Thank you for stopping by in December while I was MIA. Your comments meant a lot to me.
Happy new year, Lori.
