The Friday Files

Hello, dear friends.  It is a rainy day here on the South Shore of Massachusetts.  I've got two sleepy dogs that refuse to get up and go out.  

The Mister took the day off.  I have a feeling that we will be giving Netflix a lot of our attention.

Here are a few things that have caught my eye this week.

Take a tour of this beautiful home owned by designer Danielle Rollins home in Atlanta.


This photographer's Long Island Retreat makes my heart go pitter-patter.

If you're looking for Springtime tabletop inspiration, you can find it right here.


Are you thinking of updating your kitchen? Here are some ideas that are worth the money.


Are your bookshelves boring you to tears?
Have I got a site for you!!!

If you love eggs, why not take them up a notch?
Click here.


You can find 30 mouth-watering Weight Watchers Dinner recipes right here.

No blogs today, just a youtube star.  Whenever I am procrastinating about tackling a boring task, I skip over to youtube and watch one of Dominique Sachse's videos.  I then head to Ulta and buy everything that Dominque is using with the hopes of looking like her.  Unfortunately, my hopes and wishes are in vain. 

If you want to look ten years younger tune in here.

Has your dog's personality changed?  I know of one pooch that has gone from crackers to downright cuckoo for cocoa puffs.  (Mrs. B saying).   Here's an article about how a dog's personality can change over time. 

And we thought her brother was the nutcase!


And if you're a cat person, you're going to love this story.


A reader emailed me to ask me if I had any ideas on what to get her niece who just bought her first house.  I recommended this dynamic duo.  I would love to hear your suggestions.



Btw... have you heard of the Datacolor Color Reader?  If you have anxiety about choosing paint colors like me, this little attachment and app are made for you.  It should save you some bucks too.

How It Works

Find the perfect color in just 3 Steps:
Step 1 – Place the ColorReader lens against surface
Step 2 - Press the “Read” button in the mobile app to measure a color
Step 3 – Check the app for the top 3 paint color matches including paint name and number  


Here's an article about ten things no one tells the Mother of the Bride.  

I've been doing a lot of research lately.  One of the things I read on one site advised the MOB to go light on the chardonnay.

Needless to say, I skipped the rest of the advice.


I finally got a phone case for my new phone.  I ordered it from Redbubble and got it in three days. 


Would you like to learn a new language for free?
There's an app for that.


I used to make the Mister call me every morning when he made it safely to work.

Now, I just check this app on my phone.


The Mister and I just finished watching two seasons of Striking Out, an Irish legal drama.  We both enjoyed it.


I want one of these for my birthday.



Just started listening to this on Audible.  
So far, so good.
I'll keep you posted.

Until next time...

Spring Fever vs. Hay Fever

Hello, dear friends.  It's finally here. The first day of Spring. It also is a very special occasion in our household.  Thirty years ago today,  I made the Mister the luckiest guy in the world by saying yes to our first date. According to my calculations, he owes me about 30 gifts because he never remembers this momentous occasion.

Today, I am linking up with my friend, Terri for Wednesday Medley.

1. The first spring flowers are usually daffodils, dandelions, lilies,  tulips, iris, and lilacs.  Which one of those choices is your favorite?  Have you seen any yet?

We have 3 lilac trees outside our kitchen window, and I love to see them in bloom.  When they do, I cut all the beautiful blooms off and place them in vases all over the house.  
I finish this exercise with a happy dance.

2.  What is your least favorite thing about the Spring?

It's a tie between hay fever and sinus headaches.
But as far as I'm concerned, they are worth every minute of discomfort in order to wake up to a beautiful Spring morning.
Remind me that I said that in May.

3.  Okay, what puts a spring in your step?

Not only do these two hooligans put a spring in my step, but they have also taught me to watch where I step. 

4.  What is your favorite Springtime song?

Lusty Month of May from Camelot is the first song that came to mind.  It's one of my favorite movies of all time.

5.  What really says Spring to you?

Spring flowers and

muddy paws.

6. Tell us something random about your week?

Last night, I met some lovely friends for dinner.  One of them, Mary Frances, mentioned the last post that I did on my favorite things.  One of the products that I use and like is Living Proof De-frizzer. 

Mary Frances told me that she loves Living Proof Full Shampoo because she only has to wash her hair two to three times a week. 

The other days she uses the Living Proof Perfect Hair Dry Shampoo, and she said it still looks like she had a blowout.  As a side note... Mary Frances' hair looks great.

I'll have what she's having.
I just ordered both products and will keep you posted.

Until next time...
