How is everyone feeling about the holidays? Everyone ready, tree up, gifts bought, wrapped, recipes together, grocery list prepared? No? Well, then you are just like me! I've got to admit that I'm not yet in the holiday spirit. I usually have the best intentions in early November and start leaving sticky note memos all over the place with gift ideas and things to do. Once we roll into December those things get replaced by work obligations. Not sure if it is the same for everyone else, but December becomes my busiest time of the year with a mad rush to get things done for everyone else before the holidays, and my things are thrown together last minute. Once Christmas does arrive I'm exhausted!
This year feels like the worsts so far. I'm so far behind with really not a single thing completed. The past two evenings were spent finally ordering gifts online, and I'm crossing my fingers that they arrive in time. Not to mention the fact that when I get around to buying my wrapping paper and gift bags I'm going to be stuck with Dora The Explorer paper to wrap all the gifts with for the men and teens in my life! Oh well it's the thought that counts, right?!
With that said, lets have a look at ghosts of outdoor holiday arrangements past

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

I spent last evening and all this morning racking my brain and searching the internet to populate the chatter section of the site. What is "chatter" you ask, well chatter is mentions, features, photos, gossip you name it, it's there! Go and have a look to see where milk & cookies pillows have appeared - professionally printed & online magazines to our happy customer photos. Maybe you'll even see your own room there! If you've sent me photos and you don't see them there, my apologies, send them to me again and I'll put them up.

Here's a sneak peak

addicted to chocolate

It is always this time of the year that I become addicted to chocolate, all thanks to HALLOWEEN! Every Halloween I separate the candy and give out what I like least first and save the best for last. However giving out the best never comes (sorry kids in my neighborhood) because I always plan for there to be plenty left over. I then spend the entire month of November on a sugar high and justifying things like a Coffee Crisp is like a coffee at breakfast, I'm working so hard I deserve another Kit Kat break, a Crispy Crunch IS a nice light get the picture, complete irrational behavior. When the chocolate at the office ran out and I began fantasizing about the evening I was going to spend with my jack-o-lantern full of Reese's Peanut Cups I lusted over these photos to get me through my day. If your behavior sounds anything like mine go and look and feed your immaganation. If you're behavior is nothing like I described DO NOT look ahead, it is a slippery slope!
For those of you who read Dear Good Life Fitness, I know, this is not helping my muffin top disease.

ALL pillow images now on Pinterest

It took a long time, but all of my current pillow images are now up on Pinterest, on one board! What's great for you is now you can look through 1 board, and simply repin what you like to add to your own boards when planning out rooms or events. So simple, I know! As I add new inventory to the store I will also add those images to this board. Happy pinning!

For those of you out of the Pinterest know. Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
