Travel and Leisure Fall Get...

We made Travel and Leisure’s national list of Affordable Fall Getaways on the Today Show. See The Show!

The Today Show, Oh My!

So we were featured on the today show last week! What a great thing this is, it was completely unexpected and we didn’t even realize that was Kathy Lee with us! She must have thought we had great “game face” But we did not realize who she was! This is not unusual in my world, […]

The Red Couch Giveth Still&...

So we went to preview an auction this weekend and were able to pick up a check from the auction house for the old couch! Lo and behold someone paid 450.00 for it! So the couch just keeps giving… I hope the new owners have as much fun with it as we did! There were […]

Wet Heat Wave!!

Weather, it is one of the most discussed topics (next to the forbidden topic of politics) and the most misunderstood! We are in a weather pattern that has it’s perks but is downright soggy. It has rained most of the time for about 3 weeks. I had heard that this environment was more like Oregon […]

Food, Glorious Food…

A Lovely Livingroom, Now Wh...

I am constantly looking for new projects, almost as restlessly as my husband who indulges himself in what we call travel porn, IE he spends hours online looking at travel sights and imagining the trips we could take if only Lori would stop spending all the money on the inn.. this is a great thing […]
