You Asked for It!

Ok, several people asked to see the closet pics so you could see the "before" status of my office space. Here are two pics - the first is the closet is its usual state - of disarray, and the second is after I did some clean up. It still needs work, but I'm slowly making progress. This closet has basically been where I throw everything when I need to clean up quick and store old baby stuff the little guy doesn't use anymore, so it's a mess.

And here are some PINK PAINT samples I picked up at Home Depot this weekend!!!! Hubs actually likes the darker one, but I think I should go lighter!!!

  5. I agree with Chloe- I love the dark pink, but dark might make that space smaller. So in that case, I like the middle one!! Regardless of which one you choose, I bet it will be cute!!

  6. Stripe it using the dark and the light! At least it's a small space and you won't have to tape off a whole room!!!

  11. I think you should go with the darker one. I have a pink office, and I went with a brighter pink. It looks really good with the white furniture I have.

  12. I actually like the lightest pink. The cool icy tone feels very fresh yet oh-so-chic. Kinda Domino if you know what I mean. Either way whatever you choose is sure to look fabulous! Can't wait to see the transformation.

  14. I vote for light pink. My bedroom is a super light pink and I love it - soothing but fun and not really girly! I've managed to convince my husband of the same thing somehow!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
