Happy Monday!

Boy did it rain this weekend......and the wind, was something else! It was a weekend of staying in your sweats and cuddling by the fire! Well that's what I did while Katelyn was doing homework and hubby was fixing her car in garage. While sitting by the fire I was pinning on PINTEREST my latest obsession.

Hey in my defense the house was clean, groceries were stocked, laundry done.....etc......!

 My rainy day fun....

Heres a recipe I pinned. I'm making this for Katelyn it's her favorite soup- Tomato basil  and a side of grilled cheese! Yum...



I want to re-cover our living room couches and arm chair via slipcovers. Right now they are a green,red,tan plaid and I want something more neutral like this picture.

Or maybe tan so I can change up the colors with pillows seasonal. I love the idea of crisp white...but with my coffee spilling, red wine spilling family I don't know!

Lots of ideas and inspirations found on PINTEREST

Like this:


I'm going to print and frame for my Thanksgiving mantel

And this for Christmas, which is about 98 days away!!

And how about this laundry room...omg! I think this is brilliant idea. Who would'nt love doing laundry and ironing while watching your favorite shows.

Dreaming of going here some day.....maybe for my 50th...!
Santorini, Greece

And my favorite quote found

Yes it is.....
Not raining today..so far..going to head outdoors and live life today!
Happy Monday!

mmm that soup looks good!
Too bad about the weather - hopefully you've got a better week ahead. I'm still planning to attack my white slipcovers for our club chairs - once I can reclaim my desk from under the mountains of my hubby's paperwork. Loving the snowman fridge - I might have to do that here for the holidays! :)

Oh my land - I have always been a fan of a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup.

I'm not sure if Sophie goes on the couch but usually with pets, white isn't a good idea. ;)

I have that soup recipe pinned too and am anxious to try it. I saw you'd been busy : ) I haven't had a lot of time on there lately but I am still loving it. Enjoy a not rainy day!

I love tomato soup! I will check out the recipe! It has been a rainy weekend in ANC too. We had the fire going on Sat. & Sun. My friend Elizabeth who lives up in the hills got some snow but it turned to rain--- snow is inevitable & coming soon- got to put my shovel on the deck & be ready to dig pathways for the dogs once we get a few inches :(

PS love that hair curling idea- Katelyn has gorgeous hair!

Happy Monday :)

Joyce said...

I still don't know how to pin- I think I now have forgotten my password. :/ Do you think you can give me a 101 crash course?! :) xo

I know I'd be more inclined to do laundry if I could watch tv at the same time!
I love Pinterest, I'm going to find and follow you right now!

I loved your post today!!! I need to go and check out pin interest. My only worry, is it addictive?? Like Facebook?? :D And the laundry room with favorite shows....sheer paradise..:)
I also wanted to tell you that I was inspired by Expats Again and your posts of Italy to get mine up!!! Thank you so much for your heartfelt comments!!
