Tuesday Randoms

I really want to decorate my bedroom, but my bank account and common sense are telling me not right now. We still have Target bedroom furniture that we have had since we got married 13 years ago. It needs to go. 


I am really looking into a whole-food plant-based diet again. We tried it last Summer, but lost motivation. It was hard to spend time and money on new recipes and then not even like some of them. The health benefits alone seem amazing though, so I want to give it another go. Any of you tried this?

I am going to a yoga class with my MIL tomorrow night. I am super excited about it, but new social situations make me nervous. 

I have been waffling back and forth about buying a Paula's Choice skincare line for months. I have ordered several of their sample kits and think that the Skin Recovery line has worked best for me. Anybody else use PC products?

Re: Tuesday Randoms

  • I'm dying to re-do our bedroom, too! There is nothing wrong with our furniture, I'm just tired of it after 11 years. I'm so hoping we are done with illness for awhile. In the past 3 weeks DD and I have both had bronchitis, pink eye, and a stomach bug. I've also had an ear infection and she's had a sinus infection. The bugs going around are terrible. No experience with PC products but I've heard great things!

  • I'm not sure why that posted with no paragraph breaks. Sorry about the formatting.

  • The play I'm in opens on Thursday and we had to cancel rehearsal last night due to weather. They're still on the fence about tonight (ice), and they have yet to fully rehearse the arrest scene at the end of act 2 because the handcuffs haven't come in yet because the director isn't much on advance planning. I'm glad I'm not in that scene. ;-) We also haven't run the curtain call yet, but on the whole I think the show is ready otherwise, so I'm sure it'll be fine even if we only get in one more rehearsal.

  • We need to make a bunch of improvements on the house, but I'd love to also get matching furniture. We have folding tables as night stands since we bought a nice bed frame but didn't want to splurge on the expensive matching night stands. We could use a "real" coffee table and end tables in the living room since those are old yard sale finds.

    We lost power at work for less than an hour today. I was so hoping to go home I can't focus now.

    What a tease! I would be disappointed.

  • I have no motivation to do anything right now. At work, at home, at the gym...nothing. I need to find my mojo.

  • I have spent too much time around people lately. My inner introvert I have to hide because of my work is screaming for some time with a pile of books and my bed.

  • Speaking of redecorating - we're about to redo our bathroom, and I can not wait.  The contractor is coming on Saturday.  DH and I still seem to have a slightly different idea of our budget, but I'm confident that I will prevail in that regard.  I have such a dream list of changes I want to make.  We only have one bathroom, and it's super small.  I'm going for a beach cottage kind of feel to it - what do you guys think of this floor?  It's tile made to look like weathered hardwood.  DH is skeptical, but I'm kind of obsessed with it.

    I'm totally phoning in adulting right now.

    My SIL recently redid their bathroom and used the wood tile.  They like it.  I think it looks nice.

  • I love the look of the beach bathroom floor. I'm obsessed with that silly Flip or Flop show and they use that on a lot of places right now. Seems like you could keep that for many years.

    I have tomorrow off, I feel like I've been grasping at motivation all week. I haven't done laundry, tax stuff, even work is a struggle just to get to that day off.

    I love it!!! We redid our breezeway recently and turned it into a mudroom. We used linoleum, but it looks exactly like this. We love it.

  • We have tile in our house that's patterned to look like wood.  It's not light like that but it's so easy to clean.
