Random Post of Sorts

Happy Tuesday my friends!  Hope you were lucky enough to have the day off yesterday, like I was.  I did a lot of painting in my living room but still wasn't able to get it all complete like I had hoped to after 2 days of going at it.  But it is looking much better than it did and the hubster put up a lot of crown molding, which makes it look even nicer.  I can't wait to get it all finished and share the pictures with you.  We are already loving the new look even though we still have a long way to go on it.  Today will be a random post of sorts - hope you don't mind! :o)

Here are a few pictures of our front and side yard after the 14" of snow we got last week. This was a few days after it had finally quit snowing - as you can see - we still had/have a LOT of snow and are expecting another 4-6 inches again tonight too.
Our lake view:
On another note - here are a few pictures that I took from mine and husby's day out when we went to lunch and also to IKEA shopping.  Poor thing - he didn't feel well at all but was still a trooper and took me to a wonderful lunch and shopping afterwards.  However, we didn't have any luck at IKEA as they were in the middle of more remodeling which totally messed up our plans.  Oh well.... anyway - on
to pictures from our lunch first:  This is the hubster and he was in a lot of pain as you can see:
Picts from inside the restaurant:
Our delicious food - the bread was so YUMMY!
This was our wonderful chicken, rice and fries - OMG it was AWESOME and only $6.50 per plate! It was so much food we couldn't even eat it all.
This was the design on the table
Outside of the restaurant:
On our way to IKEA for what we were hoping was some great shopping - for some reason I look mad in this picture, but I wasn't - I was worried about the neighborhood we were going through at the time and was concentrating really hard - HA!
A couple of my favorite lamps:
This is the sink I want in my bathroom:

Sorry for the picture overload but I told you it was a random post of sorts.  :o)  Hope you had a great Valentine's Day Sunday and have a great day today. 

Lots of love and hugs,


  1. I am dying for a cute chandalier for the nursery! I didn't even think of ikea. Great suggestion! :)

    Hope you stay warm!

  2. oh my goodness that bread looks AMAZING!

  3. I love random......that first lamp is way awesome;)

    have a great day my friend

  4. Sounds like a lovely V day! I personally can't do IKEA...I think it's overwhelming to me as I get a headache when I go in there. Or maybe I'm allergic to some chemicals they use.

    BODA lose weight

  5. The lamps are really pretty!

    I can't wait to see your "after" pictures of your living room! :)


Sweet Love From My Friends
