Past Two Months Smiles

So I am trying once again to get back in the swing - this attempt at the Master of Accounting is really kicking my booty and sucking up all my time. So I wanted to share some smiles for the past couple of months. First -look how much my grandson has grown - WOW. He does the most bizarre thing whenever I come to his house to visit - as soon as he see me he starts to cry - it breaks my heart. He does warm up to me but I cannot figure out for the life of me the issue.. Isn't he the cutest?

So I finally got another management job where I have worked for the past 16 years and my old team sent me off in style - here is me acting goofy at our lunch at a marina. Eating lunch there made my fantasize how cool it would be to live on a houseboat. I shared that with my grandmother and she said funny I should want that - most of my ancestors lived on houseboats - she herself grew up on a houseboat - how cool is that? Oh speaking of work... my Best friend has started her blog (finally) you should check her out...

Changed the house over to fall and you know I am in love with those yellow sheers that I purchased at JCP so I decided that yellow would a good fall color in my "dining area". I don't know why but one Sunday while doing laundry when I stepped out of the laundry room this was my view and it brought so much peace to me

I also bought these FANTABULOUS curtains for my living room from JCP - the color is hunagarian paprika - I love love these curtains - you remember for my birthday my grandmother got me this really pretty Christmas tree - well - I envision my tree in this window framed out by these curtains. Only problem is that the curtains do not hit the floor but I am hoping it will still be okay.

Here is another shot of the yellow in the dining - I did not have any tie backs so I got two of my beaded bracelets and used them for ties. I think it turned out pretty good - still on the hunt for some affordable burlap curtains

The spare room - funny Gizmo matches it :)

Decided to take my circle sheers and put something different up - excuse the mess - we obviously really use this room :)

My room - I am tired of this comforter but the only "fall" light weighted I can put on - I adore my burnt orange comforter but it is really heavy and Mr. Man complains it's too hot so I have to hold off and wait until winter for that one

and the one little bathroom.....

I love buying myself a little bouquet of flowers when I am at Krogers - they really bring a smile to my face. That book God's Given Eye is from a friend of mine - she loves photography and found a neat way to tie her pictures to scriptures to help people remember scriptures. You should really check it out e-book is located and hardcover or paper back It is beautiful and she gave me a signed copy as a gift. I love it.


My biggest smile is this cabinet for my laundry room - it makes this room soooo much nicer - the cabinet was in my aunt Cathy's house - her father-in-law built it back in the early 70's the counter top is the original as well - she is updating the kitchen and said I could have it - I jumped on it and really love it because it not only makes this room but it has sentimental value - Doesn't it look great in there? The bottom picture is the before where I had a table in there to fold clothes - this works out sooo much better and looks soooo much cleaner

Before....Huge difference - isn't funny how changes can make a room "feel" differently?

How have YOU been? Hope you are finding a lot to smile about...Have a great weekend - Fall is coming to TN going to be cooler this weekend - I have really put on the weight so I just might have to visit my old love the Greenway...
