Good morning and Happy Monday!! We had a crazy productive Saturday and relaxing Sunday...pretty perfect if you ask me!! Here's what happened...
As mentioned in last week's post - we were able to find the perfect sofa table! I'm sort of impatient and Gary is well aware of this trait - so he scoured Craigslist and found a brand new Ikea sofa table in the same color that we were planning on purchasing. Not only did we not have to drive out 45 minutes to go to the store, but the couple selling it lived 5 minutes from us!!
Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week and make sure to stop by tomorrow for some great items!!
I haven't decorated it fully yet - but it's done exactly what I was hoping it would do...add more storage!! It's amazing what this little change has given our apartment - but there is actually more room to move around now that we don't have an ottoman in the way!

Saturday night we went to see the movie Lucy. This wasn't a movie I thought I'd like - but I was pleasantly surprised. It's a mix between the movie Limitless (with Bradley Cooper) and a science fiction thriller. Imagine a person that is able to access parts of their brain that scientists had only ever theorized about...and then it happens! Short, sweet and to the point!
It was obviously not enough to see Amanda only once on her trip here -so we were able to meet up on Saturday night and share a few laughs! Notice how they are bundled up and I'm in a strapless dress...just goes to show 70 degrees is super warm to me!
On Sunday night I made my favorite summer risotto. I tried a new way to make salmon and it was delicious...you could really taste all the flavors! This meal has the man seal of approval!!
I have been excited to try out Sally Hansen's miracle gel - you don't need a light to cure it and it's said to last up to 14 days. We'll see if it works, but my first reaction is positive. It doesn't have the same consistency as regular nail polish so I actually did 3 coats because it was a bit streaky with just two. Have you used this yet?
After the closet clean out last weekend and seeing the success of so many bloggers Blog Sales - especially Annie's - my friend Erica and I decided to host one of our own! So tomorrow (Tuesday) the sale goes live and I hope you'll come back to see some of the goods we have! It's not terribly huge - just about 20 items, but we have some wonderful gently used and new clothing we'd love to sell!
I love having fresh flowers in the house, but even more so on a Sunday because it gives me the refresh I need to start the week!! These beauties were $4.99 at Trader Joe's!
Also excited that this beauty arrived on Friday!! It's just as pretty as I imagined & can't wait to wear it!
