Love It or Hate It?

I was just reading this blog post by Razmataz.  It was about Sarah Richardson's new series.  I asked Raz how she liked the dining room Sarah did in the new Sarah's House season. Now, I pretty much always love her designs.  This time I really didn't like it.  There were too many shades of blue not getting along. What do you think?

Usually, her rooms are much cleaner and less jarring to me. Here are some other dining rooms she has designed.

So folks, do we love Sarah's latest dining room or hate it?  I'm all ears.

Who Knew?

I'm just going to post some random DR photos to sweeten the pot.  Everyone likes to look at pictures on a blog, right? 
They love to have their picture taken.

Mr LC got back from the Dominican on a Monday and by Tuesday he was teaching again.  I know.  His former boss called him and asked if he would fill in for about twelve weeks while one of the staff did a practicum to complete her masters degree.
Look at those eyelashes!

Mr LC reasoned that it would be great to get the extra income and have little responsibility. As in he doesn't have to write any reports.  That's a big win for him.

You won't believe this but now I don't like it when he works.  How weird is that?  I can't believe myself sometimes.  It's only three days a week but I can feel the stress already.  Getting him out the door in the morning is a job in itself. Besides that, I no longer have the car whenever I want it. Major bummer.

Happy days, Mr LC!

The best part is he's been on the job for a week and he has a storm day already!

Long Time No See.

It seems like I haven't been here in forever.  Mr LC got back from the Dominican on Monday so between him and my Grand baby I've been a wee bit busy this week.

Here's  my five week old baby:

Is he not the cutest thing you have ever seen?

I just loaded a ton of Dominican photos last night so I haven't edited them at all but I'll show a couple here:

How sweet are they?  I was sure Mr LC would have brought some of these babies home with him but for some odd reason their mothers wouldn't let them go.

Cuteness squared.

Broken Item of the Week.

While Mr LC is away, I like to be a bit naughty.  I like to imbibe a little.  This is my drink of choice:

The photo I chose is germain to the broken item

You cannot mix pepsi with your laptop.

When Pepsi spillage occurs on the keyboard of your laptop mayhem ensues.  Et voila!  My broken item of the week.  Let's hope the IT genius son-in-law can fix it for me before Mr LC comes home from the Dominican on Monday or I may be going on an extended vacation to a place not of my choosing.

How's that for a run on sentence?  Scared much???

Am I Ready For This?

If you have followed my blog from the beginning, you may remember my post about my fifteen minutes of fame by being featured in a magazine.  You can read it here

A few weeks ago I was contacted by HGTV magazine.  I didn't know they had a magazine, did you?  Well they do and this is the first issue:

 I was contacted because they want to feature my red alphabet pillow from my Etsy shop!  WOW!

I am thrilled and amazed.  The pillow will be featured in an article about great pillows under $30.00.  They will be sending me a copy of the issue when it is ready so I'll be sure and let you know. 

Will I have to increase my staff?  Will I have to get a new sewing machine?  Will I be able to source enough ink for my silkscreen?   Oh, the problems I will have to deal with!  Riiiiight.

Believe It or Not.

As many of you may recall, last winter I moaned about the weather incessantly.  That's just what Maritimers do.  I'm going to try my best not to whine about it this year except for what happened this past Sunday.

Let's just say I was rendered speechless when I woke up to this Sunday morning. Believe it or not.

Below is another believe it or not moment:

This has never happened before.  Sophie and Emma actually jumped up on the couch even though Millie was there first.  Those two dogs are in fear and trembling when Millie's in the house.  I guess when the wood fire is going all bets are off.  Of course they always take the best seat in the house.  Do I make them move? Of course not.
