This actually took some thought. Should we go with a full bed (headboard + footboard + sideboard)? Or just the headboard and bed frame?
I like the look of a complete bed in a master bedroom but, only if there is space for that. A full bed can be overwhelming in a smaller bedroom. It can make a small bedroom look crowded and cut off precious inches.
We looked at a lot of beds and headboards before deciding on one from Wayfair. The Skyline Furniture wingback headboard upholstered in grey velvet.
I can’t believe it has been two weeks since I updated the blog! Time flies when you are swamped.
I got busy with work, and just returned from a week long work trip to the West Coast. Apartment-wise we have made progress with getting furniture for the apartment but, I haven’t gotten around to sharing pictures and posts because I have been so busy.
This weekend, I finally got off my butt and hung a few things around the apartment. Since the boyfriend and I both work full time, most of our apartment decorating/setup really has to be done on the weekends. If I owned the apartment my choice would be to use OOK nails. They make tiny holes that I wouldn’t mind as an owner. We actually used them in our last two apartments in Chicago since we had permission from the landlords. But, here in the “big city”, our management company has a reputation for being a bit stuffy. We know we’ll be moving in a year so why make holes in the wall? We needed a way to hang pictures without nails. Enter, Command strips and hooks.
I have planned and executed more than 6 Thanksgiving dinners, multiple Christmas dinners, and the occasional “big” Sunday dinner. In my family, I am the one everyone turns to when a holiday is approaching and a large piece of protein with side dishes needs preparing.
Over the years my thanksgiving menu has varied and each year items are added or removed but I have a few staples I stick with regardless of the rest of the menu. So, let’s talk turkey,
Some people get theirs fresh from the farm, others (like me) pick up a frozen turkey from the grocery store. Either way, this is a staple on my menu. I have debated switching this out for another protein in the past but my family is always insistent that we stick with “tradition”.
