"So long...farewell"

I have decided to stop blogging for now until life slows down a little. I have been bad about updating and doubt anyone still reads my posts since I have not been good about keeping them up lately. So from one of my favorite movies..."so long farewell" for now~

I love Sunday nights...

I just came from a nice family dinner at my Mom and Dad's house and I am so excited about watching tv tonight. The feeling brings me back to my childhood and being excited about watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights. My new favorite show...Mad Men is on at 9:00. I am completely obsessed with all of the set designs...take a look at this link for more detail on the authenticity of the sets. Time to go get in my pajamas and get ready to watch television.

Commitment issues...

I have been an interior designer for 10 years now. All day long I design spaces for people, pick out fabrics, furniture, accessories, lighting, paint colors etc. When it comes to my own home I am at a total loss and suffer from major design commitment issues. I have been looking for bedding now for over a year...I bought a larger size mattress and as a result needed a new bed skirt. I have been bedskirtless (I don't think that is a word) for over a year...gasp! I have looked far and wide for the perfect bedding and have purchased at least four different duvet covers and shams. All four times I returned the items to the store because they weren't quite right. I finally found my bedding...behold

duvet at the end of the bed and 2 euro shams
You are probably thinking to yourself...why did it take me so long to find perfectly plain white bedding. I can admit it...I suffer from severe design commitment issues...maybe there is some type of therapy for this ailment. The good news is I absolutely love, love, love my simple white bedding...bad news is I still need to find fabric for pillows and a bed skirt as well as a wallpaper for the back of my built-in bookshelves, new accessories for the shelves, a headboard, paint color for the walls. My dad doesn't understand why he can't just come over and paint my room this weekend. What he doesn't understand is now I have 6 paint samples taped to my wall...I must find the perfect shade of blue to paint the walls...hopefully I will be able to post pictures of the new room soon but it might take another year to find that perfect shade of blue...exhausting, I know~

Saturday farmer's market...

I spent my morning walking around and taking in all the activity at the Dallas Farmer's Market. I don't know how I have lived in this city for 10 years and have missed out on this little treasure. There is something about buying local produce directly from the person that grew it that makes it taste so good. Time to go eat some sweet East Texas peaches~
