Seen This Week....

One of the perks of my job is I get to go in a lot of homes - which I love!  Here are a couple things I saw this week that I loved and grabbed a quick photo of w/ my phone:

I had a hard time photographing these with my phone because the room was a little dark, but these wooden cornice boards were so cool looking.  It's hard to tell here, but each letter is a separate piece of wood on the background piece.  These were perfect for the Game Room they were in.  They also had a great piece of subway art over the couch, but I didn't want to go too crazy w/ the pictures! 

Also seen was this great dining room light fixture - loved it!
That is seeded glass, which is my favorite.  It was a really great piece.

Lighten My Life - A Few Updates

Since I was gone for so long w/ the dying computer, here are just a few updates on lightening my life for you:

1. The vegetable garden is planted! We have tomatoes, peppers, squash, zucchini & cucumbers.  So far, all plants are still living, and we even have some tomatoes appearing! Can't wait to enjoy homegrown veggies soon!

2. Lightening my body via Weight Watchers and the Portion Control Meal Plan from E-Mealz is going very well - not ready to share how much I've lost, but I'm getting close to a big milestone, so I'll be sharing more soon!

3. A little progress has been made on Teen K's bedroom makeover.  She has finally settled on a plum quilt & shams from Target.  So now we're on the search for some printed fabric to tie together the blue couch & plum/purples that she wants.  This is our big challenge.  Here are a couple we're considering right now: 
Then it's on to paint for the walls!

So there are some updates for now!
