Thank You

I hope you all had a great weekend!
We finally got our tree decorated over the weekend!
I usually have my tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving....
We are a little behind on our Christmas decorating this year....
Hopefully I will have a few more holiday pictures for you soon.....
On another note....

Thank you Fifi for all of your continued support you give to all of us women!

  9. Wow! Congratulations Maria!!! Have fun with the Christmas cookies and decorating!

  10. Congratulations on the magazine feature Maria! that is so exciting!

    I love every inch of your home and have mentioned (and linked back to) your blog many times on my own little blog.

    can you please try to help me out with something??? i love love love the color of your living room. i know it's "gray peeral" by martha stewart and have had a sample mixed for me as i am attempting to find the perfect shade of gray for my little guys room. it seems quite a bit darker in his room than it looks in your home. i do realize you have tons of natural light in your home and his room only has one window. ugh. but is there any chance you have the formula on an old can of it and could email it to me so i can confirm it's an exact match? i'm heading out to run some errands and hopefully just commit and pick up some paint. so i'll keep my phone close in case an email comes in from you. :)

    thank you in advance!


  11. Congratulations, Maria on your features! I'll go pick up a magazine today. Your tree looks lovely. I just got mine up last night. For some reason I am behind on Christmas this year. Have a great week.
