First up...my bedroom. I love the color. I love the furniture. It's really nice cherry; it was a bargain. I have a thing for quilts. I think they're the most comfy cuddle blankets. That is one of the only 'old fashioned' things I own. My bedroom is one of the most uncluttered spaces in the house...on purpose. Who wants to sleep with tons of junk all around? It's one of the only rooms that the children don't play in. They occassionally watch movies on our bed, but it is a toy-free zone...a grown-up space.
Next up...my Vera Bradley collection. Coincidently...these bags are quilted...told you I like quilts. It would make me a goober, but they are soft enough to use as pillows. My collection 'snot' very big. These bags aren't cheap, but they were all four gifts from my husband. He loves me, so he indulges me. The biggest one is my laptop case. It's really cute for a little toting, but I will never carry it when I fly again. It doesn't have a shoulder strap so I about killed my arms/shoulders by lugging this thing around. There's a nugget of info for you. Skip being 'cute' when traveling with your laptop, and take the boring, shoulder-strapped bag.
My favorite breakfast right now is yogurt with granola cereal in it. When we last went to NC, we picked up some McDs for breakfast on our way out. Donald got a fruit-n-yogurt parfait. I'm not sure why I had never had one, but I loved it! When we did our grocery shopping for our week in NC, we stocked up on yogurt and cereal. I ate it every day...sometimes twice! It's healthy and the cereal makes it filling. I look forward to this breakfast after a good workout.
Oh...one of my joys! My scrapbooking space. This space is upstairs with our playroom. When baby #2 was on the way, we realized there would be a severe lack of space if we didn't finish our upstairs. We used a 10 foot section of countertop for the desk...there is a computer on the far right end. The countertop makes for a perfect scrapping surface. Everything is rather organized...at least to me it is. It's fun to go up there, turn on iTunes on the computer, and have some time alone to work on my pages. Usually that time is when the kids are already in bed and more often when hubby is out of town.
Because Spring is coming soon...I'm getting the fever! Fever for playing ball like a teenager. I started playing sports when I was 12/13. My P.E. teacher in 7th grade wanted me to play basketball for him when I got into 8th grade. He wanted me to prepare by playing volleyball in the fall, so I did. Then I played basketball. The volleyball coach was also the softball coach, so when spring rolled around, he recruited me for softball. I think I started off in the outfield, but I soon moved to catcher and then pitcher. More often than not, I am the pitcher...every now and then I get to play short stop or third base. And by the way...every now and then I hit a homerun.
