Day dreaming

It's been hot here recently.  That tends to happen in North Carolina in the summer. 
The temperature goes up, the humidity rises and the heat index equals hell.

We joined a neighborhood pool this summer which is turning out to be a godsend, however it doesn't stop my wishful thinking.  I would L.O.V.E to have something similiar to one of these pretty scenes  appear in my own backyard one day...

Like I said, wishful thinking...
Happy Friday.

It's been too long...

I have been giving Bryan a break from my projects recently which hopefully explains my random posts and decorating hiatus.  (He gets a little overwhelmed sometimes by my...enthusiasm let's call it.)
It's been long enough though and I think break time is over. 
Plus he's taking a little trip with his brother this weekend which leaves me and Gray Dog together for a few hours with a shed full of power tools just waiting to be used!

I'm thinking of addressing our guest room. 
It needs help.

It really needs a new coat of paint, but I'm honestly sick of painting. 
I'm hoping if I just clear out some of the clutter and add a few visually pleasing elements it will help.
Here's some ideas I have:

This is bad but I can't remember where I saved this image from

Hopefully this works out...

Because sometime we need a good quote

"if one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces,
never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.
A bend in the road is not the end of the road."

Look forward to a much needed relaxing weekend.
I hope you have a great one as well.

I'm just sayin...

This showed up in my email this morning

It might just be a sign to all my blogger friends

A worthy investment!

I am sure many of my friends have heard me talk about my love affair with my clarisonic, but I'm going to mention it one more time just in case you weren't listening. 

This little contraption is like magic in the palm of my hand!  I have been using the Mia for a little over a year now and can't live without it!  In fact, I'm considering an upgrade to the Classic so I can make use of the body brush as well!

My face feels and looks cleaner, the little fine lines around my eyes have almost disappeared and my skin just looks healthier all around.  Sure there are other cheaper versions on the market, but they are imposters and do not work as well.  Make the investment, I promise you will not regret it. 

I'll even give you a little inside tip on how to get it the cheaper because they NEVER go on sale.  If you sign up for emails on they regularly send out 20% off coupon codes and it works towards the clarisonic.
