I have always loved all white rooms. They feels so clean and peaceful. I know what you're thinking, "It may be pretty but it will be dirty in less than a week." Well, I don't care! I love them enough that it's worth the spot cleaning. I'm going to try and pull off my own version of a white room. (Posts on my messy kids will follow shortly)

Had My IKEA Fix

This past weekend I was in SLC and of course I went to IKEA. I only picked up a few things but I saw so much I wanted. I didn't have much time to spend there but that was okay because I didn't have much money either, so it worked out well. Here are a couple of my finds....

These are two of the fabrics I am using to make some pillows for my new sofa. I also got a piece that is hot pink with a yellow leaf design. I'm going for the neutral- background-with-pops-of-color look for my new place.

I found this great blog, The Pioneer Woman Cooks, and I saw this fantastic post on sushi instruction. I have a passion for good sushi and now my mouth is watering....

I am taking a big leap of faith and moving out of my parents' home and renting my own place. I'm a little nervous to go at it alone. But I suppose I'm not totally alone. I've got my great children and family behind me all the way, so I know we can do this!

There are some great things about moving. Especially this move. I get to start with a fresh palette and create the rooms of my dreams. I just ordered this amazing chair from Target....

I love the color, pattern and style. I'm really into bright, fresh colors right now. I have some more ideas that I'll post about soon...

I Must Need Some Spring

I vow to decorate with more fresh flowers. Pure luxury is having fresh flowers everyday and I am in need of some pure luxury.

The Bathroom is Almost Finished!

I only have a few more things to finish it up and then it will be done!!!! I'm having a difficult time finding a cabinet to go above the toilet. All of them that I have seen do not impress me.

(My camera decided to die so these are the only pics I could get. Soon I'll get good pics on here so you can see the bathroom in all it's glory!)

Dear Anthropologie,

Let me start by telling you how much I love you. You are beautiful, unique, inspiring, and so cool. I want to be you. You always have exactly what I want and, occasionally, need. Like that time you had those perfect drawer pulls, do you remember the ones I am talking about? The orange and white little knobs that will be so cute on that table I am painting that awesome shade of blue/turquoise? I knew you would remember. You never let me down. Everytime we get together I am in awe of you. Sometimes you use funny things like old phone books or coffee filters or something like that to decorate with and you give me the best inspiration. Who would have thought that old paper products could be so beautiful? You would, that's who.

Someday, Anthro, I will be able to spend more time with you. Right now my life is a little crazy. As soon as I am able to I will be with you weekly, I promise. Until then, keep sending me your exquisite mailings that I know were made just for me. And I'll keep visiting you, often.

Love your bff,
