Color and Scent

 I settled on a wall color:  SW- Latte  Do any of you have this color in your house?  According to the man at our local Sherwin Williams it is their top selling color.  I just wanted to go back to a very neutral color.  I didn't want to do anything too dark because I want the room to look bigger and brighter.
I bought this color chip book on Saturday and I am having so much fun with it.  Everytime Steve looks at me I have this in my hands and usually have it pressed against a wall.

I try to get a perfume for Christmas every year.  Have you ever smelled Oscar de la Renta's  Something Blue?  I THINK I love it.

We have latte in our house! We also have nomadic dessert and Kilim beige on that card. They're great neutrals - no orange or green undertones! My hubby works for Sherwin Williams, and I make him crazy asking him what's "in" but he knows his colors!!

SW Revere Pewter is really popular too. My parents have that in their house, and I love it! You may want to look at that too. :)

I'm so glad I'm not the only one struggling picking a paint color right now!! I am looking at the gray tones for my master! Ugh!

The color is so pretty. It looks so much lighter than I thought that color was, did you half the intensity? I really like it! I am struggling to find a nice neutral for our house and it is hard!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
