I'm a morning person. Monday mornings for me are not the beast they seem to be for some of my friends.
Monday's provide the opportunity to start fresh.

This week I will NOT eat the entire box of Cheeze-Its in one sitting.

I do my grocery shopping on Mondays. So the week begins with opportunities to try new recipes in the kitchen.

Look at this pantry. Exactly what can I use that requires 6 cans of green beans? Green bean casserole, anyone?  Note to self:  Let's expand the veggie selection today. 

I also try to get the house straightened up on Mondays.

*This is just one spot where we've stacked the stuff from the rooms. I'm thinking the draped shower curtain adds a certain j'ne sais quoi to the area. *

Try to get the house straightened....doesn't mean it happens, but I do stand and look at the mess with the best of  intentions.  Especially this week. The girls' rooms are painted, but I've been too lazy to put them back together.  We are loving the color though.

The walls in the bedrooms are "Spud" from Martha Stewart paint colors.

* Let's all take a moment and notice the toilet bowl brush on the chest at the end of the bed.  Nice. Real nice. **

The bathroom is "Ballet Slipper" from Martha Stewart paint.  I can't remember what color the cabinets in the bathroom are. It is another Martha Stewart color in the same family.
I am changing the faucets and door pulls to a darker bronze. That will happen later this week.

We get furniture today for one room and are pulling things together for the other room.  Hopefully I can get it together before the girls graduate from high school.  No promises, though.

So while I go and get this week started, I wanted to share some blogs that I visit.  I look forward to their posts on Mondays...some are funny, some creative and some just cool.

Mel's Kitchen Cafe is a great resource for recipes that encourage "real" cooking. If you're trying to get your family back to basics and off of processed stuff, this is a super site!

Nesting Place is a site that is the way I want my home to be- comfortable, livable, classic. I'm haven't gotten to that place yet, but we're on our way!

Holly Mathis Interiors is my new favorite place to visit.  I'm not a decorator, so finding a decorator that can make things look put together in an effortless way is always impressive to me.

Happy Monday, Y'all!

  1. Thank you for the "Spud" pictures. I'm thinking about putting in my own bedroom, think I will do it.
