Happy Saturday! Do you have plans for this weekend? So far, I got nothin’. I may talk the hubs into visiting some more antique shops downtown. We’ve been doing that a lot lately. I’m totally digging the idea of upcycling and repurposing things. And the hubs is really getting in to it too. In fact, one of our favorite places right now is a little shop called Annie Laurie’s Antiques. You can read all about it by clicking here.
This is our living room, the space we’re currently trying to decorate… I love the wall color and the wood ceiling. At first, I thought it’d be a little too cabiney for me but now that we’ve moved our stuff in, it feels cozy. And the colors are just this side of funky.
We’re trying to find unique pieces to fill in some of the empty spaces. I think plants would look nice in the corners but we need some “personality” pieces too. The hubs would like to print and mat three of my photos to hang on the wall above the sofa. Right now, we’re about 100% certain that this picture will be the centerpiece.
I’d also like to take some time this weekend to set up a schedule for blogging. Now that I’m working, I find that I don’t have as much time to write or take pictures as I used to. Or, at least, not without taking time away from my family. When we moved here, our goal was to spend more time together as a family, you know, eat meals together, watch movies, just hang out… So I really need to find a balance.
I also want to cook more. Now that it’s getting cooler, I’m starting to crave soups, stews and heavy vegetables. That’s probably why I was all kinds of excited when I came across this recipe for Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Apples by Shelly at Life on the Wild Side. For the recipe, click here. Seriously, doesn’t that look like the most delicious comfort meal ever? Cannot wait to try it.
