a random rambling

This is something I am just gonna title: a random rambling.. Lol.

I had several catchy titles that were just short of amazing.. (not so much)
before finally settling on the cream of the crop: a random rambling.
(did I seriously just say cream of the crop?)

If by chance you are still reading this.. I thank you. :0)




Spring has arrived..  our flowers are starting to show themselves,
gardening, working on my flower beds, and mowing the
yard among all the other yard work chores has been added to the 'to do' list.

Aaaah, to do lists!
They have good days,
and not so very good days on the 'got it done' scale.

Life can get busy after all.

There are days when there just doesn't seem like enough time
to tackle all that I had planned to get done,
spend that 'extra time' doing _______________(fill in the blank)
that I had intended to finally get to,  and on, and on.

Of course then there are some days in all honesty,
I am sure that I could get more done than I actually do accomplish.

Priorities.. right? :0)

They are certainly subject to change.. at any given moment. 
Have your day planned out, and ready to take on that day
and then something comes up and yep,  those priorities for the day
change.

We have a lot going on with the end of the school year upon us.

Our daughters senior prom is this week..
(I am still trying to grasp my baby girl is a SENIOR!),
Then soon after will be her Senior class Trip,
and then... Graduation.



I am a proud momma that is for sure..
Expect tears, there will be tears. :0)

Kitchen spruce up, red and turquoise

I have been trying to add in more touches of reds and shades of turquoise in my kitchen..
who knew it was so hard to find a bright red?
I have seen lots of shades of deep reds, burgundy's and so on,
but I have yet to find a bright red tablecloth, or table runner.
I haven't given up, but until I find one I do have a pretty printed
floral one that I look forward to using.   (Come on Spring.. Lol)

So today I thought I would share what I have done so far and a few of the items
that I have found.

I had received a gift card at Christmas so what did I use it for?
New dishes for my china hutch.

However, I didn't do the match-y match-y thing.

I chose cream colored plates and beautiful printed dishes to go with them!







You probably recognize the brand? :o)
 (dishes by: The Pioneer Woman)

I really like the bright colors and fun prints,
and since these had bright red and turquoise I chose the prints that I liked the best
and in my cart they went.


The next thing I did was find some new rugs, this took some time.
I previously have had burgundy rugs for several years,  and it was definitely
time for something new and I really wanted red, but again..
I couldn't find a true red in what I was looking for.
When I did find something close, it was either a bad choice for a kitchen rug,
or not the size I wanted.. but I finally found these, and decided I liked
them enough to go with this pretty shade of teal instead.





I really like the additional pops of color that they have added to the space,
there is definitely something fun and cheerful about adding in some fun
pops of color and prints to a space.
