Tuesday’s Tidings for July 9, 2013

1. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! We celebrated with Josh’s family this year. It was a ton of fun and we ate a lot of good food!

2. Remember how I mentioned last week that Josh decided to move all of our furniture around, well, we’ve finally got some new things in our living room now. We bought new curtains, new pillows, a new piece or artwork for the fireplace mantel. It looks great so far, I think. But I’m not a decorator. We still need to get a shelving piece for over our coffee bar and add some more pictures to the other side of the tv. I’m thinking something like this or like this! What do you think?

3. One of the great things about rearranging furniture is that sometimes less is more! We took out our old leather love seat that I’ve hated for 9 years, but Josh made me get and we got rid of this huge book case that we were using as an entertainment center. We sold them on craigslist and would you believe, the crazy people that came and bought the stuff didn’t even try to barter the price down. Crazies!

4. The other day I tried the new Valencia Orange Refresher from Starbucks and fell in love! It’s citrusy without being acidic and so so refreshing! It’s a new fave of mine now.

5. Three times now in the last week and a half, I’ve bought something, only to get it home and realize that I don’t like it. Or well, not that I don’t like it, just maybe it doesn’t look as good as I thought it did. Later this week, I need to go back to Target and make yet another return. BLAH!

6. My sister’s boyfriend’s family owns a marionberry field/farm. He gave us a huge box of these delicious berries last week. I cannot wait to make these crepes with them.

7. I’m finally getting around to updating some of our family pictures in the house. I still have quite a bit to do, but it’s getting there. How often do you update family photos?

8. My mom just came over and helped me with some of my decorating and gave me a few pointers. It sure does pay knowing something that knows a lot about interior design. My mom is one smart cookie!

9. Christian LOVES his naps. I swear all of my kids nap more than the average baby does. But if he doesn’t get a nap when he’s ready for one, watch out!

10. I love my A/C unit-The end!
