Annual Holiday Party

Found out last week that this year's theme is Gold in Winter Wonderland...Thanks for keeping that tidbit to yourself until the last minute Mr. Happy!

He said "Just put on a gold necklace."

She just rolled her eyes...then went out and bought this Free People Skirt...


I also got this top but in a beautiful deep Turquoise.


Now I know what you are thinking...shouldn't she wear something that she already has. Isn't she simplifying? Yes, yes I am...This outfit will also be worn at the annual Krewe Ball. And I might just wear to a department meeting with a black blazer, just because. BOOM!

That's a whole lotta gold in winter wonderland!

No Rest for the Weary

As I was cursing complaining yesterday while installing the light fixture in the laundry room, I told Mr. Happy that I DONE with projects!! Here it is a scant 12 hours later...

Isn't this a lovely fabric for relaxed roman shades for the dining room? At least I won't be sewing them. I just have to install them when they are done.

It jumped right off the page and hit me between the eyes! I've been searching for fabric since July! I'm working with a lovely lady out of Cincinnati and I'm so excited to finally get this under way!!

Onward!

Laundry Room ORC Finale!

Finally finished!! YAY!! I honestly didn't think I'd get it done! We were at cross Country Regionals yesterday in Alachua, FL and were gone most of the day. But managed to pull it together this morning! I did not get the light fixture I wanted but I made due and at $12.99, I really can't complain!














Please check out all those who participated in the ORC at Linda's blog Calling It Home! There are some fabulous makeovers!

Also looking at this bag from JCrew...

Laundry Room ORC Week 5 (Almost Done!)

Bought these cute little baskets at the Country Living Fair last weekend in Atlanta for my wrapping center. The only drawback - tetanus shot will be needed before entering the laundry room! LOL!



Billy Bookcase went up as did the ironing board!

I also got the shelve above the washer and dryer up, but will save that for the big reveal next week!

I still have to decide what to do about the light fixture...

Hope everyone had a spooktacular halloween!

Halloween Treats

A few weeks ago I ordered some goodies including the ghost cookie cutter from Jenny Hobick's Everyday Occasions. Hopefully, tonight, while Matt is carving the pumpkin, I can start on cookies for the office. With our travels, cross country meets and the ORC, there just hasn't been a whole lot of time for Halloween Treat Prep! Below are some beautiful pictures from Jenny's website. Please check it out here!





Happy Halloween!
