Crazy Week

This week is an exciting week for me! First off...some Preppy bloggers are getting together Wednesday night to celebrate...THE LILLY PULITZER WAREHOUSE SALE! If you want to meet up, please contact Kappa Prep and she will forward you the details. I am so excited to meet everyone and to shop the sale!

Second, Twilight's New Moon comes out this weekend! I cannot decide if I should go at midnight on Thursday or a Friday Matinee. I will let you know.

Third, Project Runway's season finale this Thursday night. I am rooting for Carol Hannah. I think her dresses are great and I cannot wait to see her collection.


This week I will be baking for the children's school Christmas Bazaar bake sale. I will be trying some of Saucy's Sprinkles recipes like the mini candy cane hearts and Hopsy's cake balls as well as making chocolate covered pretzels! Again, I will let you know how it all turns out! We are new to this school and I am not sure of the workings of this event. I am the Home and School's Social Committee Chairperson but this event is not related. I am still figuring out where I want to be while helping out where help is needed.


And ..getting ready for Thanksgiving! I am so excited this year I found this platter at Home Goods

with some matching plates. I have always wanted turkey plates for Thanksgiving. My china is white with a silver edge and I wanted brown turkey plates so I could add in any color (or change colors) each year.

I also have a gorgeous tablecloth. If the day does not get too crazy I will take some pictures and post the tablescape. We are having everyone over and the holiday weekend is jam packed!


Lastly, we are finished installing our hardwood floors! My husband and I set out over a month ago to install hardwood floors in our foyer, dining room, mudroom, kitchen and family room. My husband was a big help =;) We chose Southern Yellow Pine in a 12" width. As of yesterday, the third coat of sealant was applied. I would like a darker look but we decided to wait until the spring to do any more coats. This is NOT our home...our home is in alittle disarray because of sealing the floor this weekend BUT this is exactly like our floors!







I will post before and after pics when our house gets itself together! (Hopefully by next week!)
Have a great day!
