I've hung up my dress-for-success clothes, and pulled my domestic "genes" out of storage.

BEST OF THE WEEKEND 1.27.17






Happy Friday, Friends!
I'm glad you found your way over to our Best of the Weekend party!

What's on your agenda this weekend?
I've got a fairly quiet one planned.
Tomorrow night we are meeting friends for dinner,
and Sunday night, I'm planning to go to see a photo exhibit called "Passage to Israel."
Other than that, I'll do a little baking,
do some work for my fundraising committee, and finish up a couple of blog posts.

But, tonight, I'm going to kick back, relax, 
and browse through all of the BOTW weekend link-ups.
So, show me what you've got!





We'd appreciate it if you'd follow your co-hosts!

THE BEDROOM: BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER



My bedroom looks so much more serene now that it's been painted a neutral color | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes #BenjaminMoore #BarelyBeige



Do you ever give in to those days when you just want to stay in bed
and pull the covers over your head?

As much as it sounds appealing to curl up under my down comforter 

 on a cold and rainy day, it's not something I ever do.
I'm too practical to waste a day, but, hey, I'm not judging.
In fact, I admire those of you who allow yourselves 
the gift of a day in bed doing nothing. 
I'd like to do it........It's just not in my DNA  

Now that we've given the bedroom an update, and painted it a neutral color,
I find myself wandering in often, just to admire its new look.  
Even though it feels more serene, and conducive to napping, 
I still can't justify spending the day in there, 
whiling away the hours in my pj's.

Bedroom After: Benjamin Moore Barely Beige paint on walls; french doors painted black.


We don't have a TV in the bedroom,
so it's not like I can lounge around in bed and binge-watch The Crown all day.
The TV is in our den, just off the bedroom, and I can't see it from the bed. 
(Speaking of The Crown, if you want to see "the queen" of all makeovers,  
click here to see what the den used to look like).

The side table used to be in the living room; the painting was previously on another wall.

I can barely sleep at night in pitch darkness
let alone snooze in broad daylight.
I'm no more a napper than I am a rapper, or a trapper,
(although some may say I'm a bit of a yapper).   
My eyes would probably never shut once,
if I spent the day in bed.

Silk hydrangeas from Pottery Barn; gold sculpture from Home Goods.

Sure, I could curl up with a good book
but after an hour, I'd be jumping out of bed every two minutes
thinking of things I should be doing.

Better throw in a load of laundry!
Am I missing any ingredients for tonight's dinner? 
Did Junior Goo Shoes shut the garage door when he left this morning?
Is there water in Sadie's bowl?
What can I eat?
Did the mailman come yet?
Where is that beach cover up I'll need three months from now?

I've got what's called "shpilkes,"
otherwise known as nervous energy.


 Nah, I'm not one for lounging around doing nothing.
Although it sure does sounds appealing.......YAWN.....😫
   Maybe I should go upstairs and give it a try.

PS - In case you're wondering, I'm only showing you part of the bedroom makeover.
I was too lazy to make the bed, on the other side of the room.
Just kidding - I'll show you that angle after I replace the bed linens.
Admittedly, that could be years from now, lol.
