I feel the need to apologize for being a lame blogger this week. I’m sorry. I had planned on posting more but recovering from The Plague, occupying my kids over their spring break and trying to keep up with everyday household stuff took almost everything out of me. Clearly, I am not Superwoman. Even so, lots to smile about this week.
*Whilst browsing black hexagon floors for grout inspiration, I came across this bathing beauty.
*I grew up in a red metal barn. Bring on the nostalgia you lil’ mini-barn.
*A hall closet-turned-kitchen. Say what?!
*Steve’s co-workers in New Zealand now have a quake-proof building in which to work safely. (I’m pushing for relocation.)
*I’m dreaming of a cozy beach getaway.
*Clean sheets and open windows are right up there with red wine and chocolate.
*My favorite acoustic trio, Nickel Creek, is back together after a seven-year hiatus. I’ve had their new album on repeat all week. It makes for some good house music.
Fun fact #1: By far, the best concert I’ve ever attended was Nickel Creek featuring Fiona Apple.
Fun fact #2: Nickel Creek covered Britney Spears’s “Toxic” several years ago. It’s beautifully hilarious and definitely worth the listen if you’ve never heard it.
I hope your weekend is full of smiles and glimpses of spring. This winter is like the annoying houseguest who just won’t leave. Good thing I refilled my supply of vitamin D. Vitamin D-induced smiles count too!
