back to school...no way!

I guess the snow queen was looking after me today because I was nooooot ready to go back to school!  We got about an inch of snow and even though it was just a teacher work day we didn't have to go.  I was trying very hard to get out of bed this morning and just as I'd get completely undressed with the shower water on my house phone would ring....in the kitchen...so I go running to the kitchen (not a pretty picture) to answer the phone and it was a recording that our work day was cancelled.  Wahoo!  So, I slept until 9 AM and I am still in my pajamas at 5:30 PM.  It's been a very relaxing day and I've gotten some things done around the house that I needed to get done before a party we are having here on Saturday night.  Unfortunately the sun came out and melted our pretty snow, but the forecast calls for even colder weather and a possibility for snow on Thursday. 

On to other important things.

My breakfast room was missing something to make it complete.  Along comes a curtain and voila! it's complete.  My parents had the breakfast room curtains and roman shade for our patio door made for us for Christmas and I'm in love :)  Meet my curtains!








Here's a cushion we had made for the back hallway cabinet.  Looove it!




I'm all about some big fabric patterns lately for some reason.  A few years ago I would have hated that huge flower print on the curtains, but I fell in love as soon as I saw it. 

Oh and may I say I have been quite a little chef lately!  I've been super inspired to cook...not sure where that inspiration came from??  Last week we had my father-in-law over for dinner two nights since my mother-in-law was out of town.  I made Potato Soup that I got from Megan back in highschool that I can't get enough of as well as Paula Deen's Shrimp Gumbo that was posted on several blogs.  The gumbo was deliccccious!  I have a few recipes from Southern Living that I hope to try out this week.  I'll let you know how they turn out.  Could it be that I actually enjoy cooking now?  I surely wouldn't admit it!
