I have no big plans for the weekend, except oh yeah. Our place is going to get painted!!!!! The gods listened and answered my prayers, see this post! It won't be one of the colors I was debating (here). But it will be a darn close-ish color, a kinda grey/blue that is already in our bedroom (our landlord/management company are tough cookies!). Compromise & SO.MUCH.BETTER. And for purposes of my liking it, it will be all sorts of better!

Being inspired I have decided to pull the trigger and do a painting I had been planning on already for our living room area. I love the look of this piece that Jen Ramos had in her old house, and will be trying to recreate something in a pallet that works for us!

Moody greys, whites, a touch of blue, and maybe some black on a white background. I have a great old large print with a silver frame that will serve as my canvas. I can't wait to get started, finished and hung up!!! Progress people, progress!

Saturday we are trying to get a double dinner date with some friends planned. And I also have a couple Barre classes I'm signed up for. But the weather as dramatically cooled. I mean it's still in the 70's so I may opt for long run's outdoors instead! 70 ain't no 95+!!!

And cooking, found some fun new recipes I want to try out. Yes it is safe to say I am addicted to quinoa! Addicted!

And don't forget - watching the last of the Olympics. I will be sad to see it go, they are so much fun to watch!

**If you didn't weigh in yet, check out yesterday's post and let me know what you wish you hadn't let get away!

What are on your agenda's?


  1. I'm addicted to quinoa too, I eat it at least 3-4 times a week! Yay for new paint!

  2. Best of luck with painting this weekend. I hope you'll share how it turns out. :)

  3. I have a confession: I hate quinoa.

    1. Gasp! No! It's soo good, I love to squeeze half a lemon in mine when I start cooking it and it brightens the flavor so much. It's such a tastey filler/grain, to me! :)

  4. Delicious and such good decor, love the wall print.
