Lately... what have I been up to these days?
WELL. If you MUST know, the new Premier Designs Jewelry 2010-2011 catalog just came out!!! I'm SOOOO excited. I must brag and say that the company has outdone themselves this year. I think the jewelry is the best yet. I have been busting bottom getting the word out, handing out catalogs, and just letting everyone know in general what a great company I am a part of!!!

Aside from that, I've been on a Pottery Barn kick. See Exhibit A:

I went on their website and saved a ba-gillion pictures to use for decorating reference. Although I must say, I don't have QUITE the money or doo-dads right now to really make it work, but I try.

Exhibit B: Me forcing Mom to take a picture of me in Pottery Barn for use in my "Dreamboard". This is me envisioning myself sitting in a Pottery Barn-esque home one day. Hehe!

I've been playing around a little with more summer decorating. (I said I wanted to do that!)

My dining room/kitchen table was looking kinda blah.

I also took everything off the end tables and the mantel in the living room and have stoof in front of it multiple times in the past few days going, "Hmmmm..." with a very "thinking" look on my face.

The mantel is to be determined but while I wait, at least I can eat some yummy dinner Dustin made:

I took the pic in the beginning's going to be Mexican soup...but it smelled so good I had my nose in it already!
More later on if I actually redo the mantel or just put everything back how it was............

Our new patio set! (Kind of...)

So we finally got our new patio set! 
We haven't finished decorating around it yet so I just saved some pics off the website:
We don't have that rug (I couldn't find it in the store or online) but I had my eye on this one for a long time and when it went on clearance I grabbed it:

Yes, it looks a little crazy 70's, but I promise in person it's a little more muted and goes well with the color of our house, which is cream with a butterscotch-ish trim color.
 I have lots of pretty red accents - on my pillows that are on the two benches by the front door, along with a few hanging thingys.

Someone took a pic on the website of their patio area, and it's a similar set and the same rug, so it gives you KIND OF an idea of how ours looks:
I have no idea who the person is (sorry, person) but their set is similar (ours has a glass table and brown throw pillows) and the cushions are the same.
So anyway, we have to put up some lattice, and move a few things around, and I'll update soon!
