On Wednesday I had a colonoscopy.  They are not fun.  You don't really have to start thinking about having one until you are 50 or older [unless there is family history].... So most of you can relax.

The stuff you have to drink is the worst part and it taste like drinking seawater to me.  YUK.  This was my second one [I had one 5 years ago] and I urge you to not be afraid.... because well....hey....the alternative is definitely worse than the procedure.


Another fact is I don't do well under anesthesia....meaning I have a hard time coming out of it.  When they shake you awake I want to punch them.  

I was groggy all day and of course since I could not eat for a day and a half....there wasn't enough food in my house to satisfy me......well actually there is never food in my house but that is another story.  In fact I made my husband stop at Wendy's for french fries on the way home and scarfed them down like it was my job.

OK...enough about that!  On to the upstairs of the Pinewood Forest Showhouse.  Open Friday-Sunday until Oct 7th.

At the top of the stairs is a bedroom and bath.

I love this Restoration Hardware bed....Julie is know for her gallery walls using vintage art....

She nails it!

And this incredible York wallpaper by Joanna Gaines.  Yes please.

It makes such a statement don't cha think?

Go Julie.

Down the hall is an office/sitting area.

Very sophisticated....and curated.  I love it.

A showhouse is always a time to go outside the box and he did just that.

Man knows how to accessorize.....

Somebody asked why anyone would place a picture in a window blocking it.  Well.....for a couple of reasons.  1. Sometimes a large window is busy and does not photograph well.  2. As I said a showhouse is an opportunity to walk on the wild side and do something that is not often done.  3.  Cause we want to.  Hee Haw :)

My friends Jennifer and Lindsey created a romantic space that turned out beautiful.

Designer: Jennifer Schoenburger and Lindsey Hene

The mirror holds the TV!

I love the black and white wallpaper mixed in with the mint green and a touch of red.

The canopy also created some nice drama.

The next space is a bunk room full of whimsey!
Designer: Dana Lynch

Hard to get a shot as the room was painted a dark blue.

Loved the framed pictures of Star Wars characters!

I think that's it!  Thoughts?  

I can't believe it's Friday....pretty darn excited!

Plans for the weekend.....I don't know but I'm thinking a pedicure might be a good idea. 

One more little tidbit of info.....down 20 lbs on Weight Watchers which I started April 1st.
Whoo hoo.
