This was our first full week of school in what seems like forever so I can not tell you how very overjoyed I am that it is finally Friday. Honestly, on Wednesday I woke up and thought it was Thursday. I was crushed when I figured out my mistake. With all of that time off I really had no idea what day of the week it was!

Anyway without further ado, here is what's on my mind...

{1} Regrets

This year I have made it my mission to clean this house out! We simply have more "stuff" than we need. (Hubby's note- AGREED!) So I right after Christmas I gave away all of my super big, super cozy wool sweaters. They served me well in New England but I just was not wearing them in NoVa. Boy do I regret that now!!! Since it would be tacky to ask for them back I guess I will have to do some shopping. And don't be surprised that I am shopping the men's department of LL Bean!

L.L.Bean Heritage Sweater, $139, available at L.L.Bean.
{2} Ikea Hack

I am so happy that I am finally doing this! I knew this was going to be a great project but I had no idea it would take me this long to get around to it. I can't believe I first mentioned it in July. But I am finally doing it!!!

{3} Vino By It's Cover

We all know that we are not suppose to judge a book by its cover but I would be a liar if I said I never read a book simply because its cover appealed to me. Recently I could say the same about a wine I tried for the first time. It had been forever since I was in a wine shop and was able to talk with the owner about what I like and didn't like about red wines. After a bit of chatting he suggested two wines. And I picked one simply because I loved its name. Not to worry it all worked out...I loved it!

{4} Formal Wear

The time of year has come that I must find a formal dress for the Catholic Charities Ball. We always have the best time at the Ball yet I always wait until the last minute to find a dress. This year I am thinking of doing something different. Has anyone had any luck with Rent The Runway? I would love to hear what you think.

{5} Art App

I know that talked about this App yesterday so forgive me but think it bears repeating. When you use the Waterlogue App, you can turn any iPhone picture into a watercolor. It is so pretty! 


  1. OMG I LOVE that table hack!!! Get on it girl... dying to see!! :-)

  2. I love rent the runway! I've done it a few times and had great luck. They will send you an extra size for free in case you're worried about which size to get.

  3. Cant wait to see the final DIY project! We LOVE us some DIY's over at out house. Glad to be a new follower and Happy Friday!

  4. Lol I just tried to order that exact sweater but they are out of smalls and mediums! I have thought about trying RTR but have been too chicken! If you try it, you must write a review on your blog! I have found some fabulous ball gowns at even more fabulous prices at Neiman's Last Call. I think they opened one at Potomac Mills Outlet Mall.

    Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  5. Can't believe you gave away all of your sweaters!!! It still get pretty cold in nova. Right now I'm making your Berger cookie pie!!! Hope it turns out!

  6. I'm a member of Rent a Runway but never tried yet, I just end up buying a dress with similar price for the mostly expensive rental prices! Can't wait to see how your project turns out!
