Hi Everyone! This time I really am back, I promise! The last 6 weeks have been a bit crazy. Don’t worry, nothing horrible, just extra extra busy. In fact, my August posts have been very minimal so thanks for sticking with me. At one point I shared “I was back in the saddle”, meaning I was back to my blogging. However, that just didn’t quite pan out, thus the reason for a bit longer break.
Some know I live in the Northwest and by day I work in Human Resources for a BIG airplane company. I changed jobs within the company in mid-July. Between learning new stuff and increasing my commute time, I spent time with family and got my son ready to return to college. Add that all up and it equals little time to put forth a good effort into blogging.
Hubby and I also just returned from a two week vacation. Wait, did I say vacation? We took young son back to college to Orlando. He’s a junior this year. Truly, it was a nice get away and yes, I always get sentimental when I say goodbye. Skype fills the void somewhat, but once a mom, always a mom, and the house is so quiet.
Over the past months I’ve been reading about HomeGoods, a store that seems to come up in posts all over the blogsphere. So……when we were in Florida I dragged my hubby and young son to the nearest store. And, oh my gosh!!!! If I was driving rather then flying had a U-Haul truck I could of spent bunches of money! Loved it all….I had little battery left on my phone but managed to grab a few pictures.
Check out this lampshade. Definitely there’s a journalism theme going on here.
How about these plates? I’d love to set a morning brunch table with them!
I love this char and table…..so “autumny” – is that a word?
This vase is fabulous – would love this with some tall greenery and white branches.
These last two pics are my favorite. Right in the middle of the HomeGoods store stood this handmade metal tree with tons of blue lights. I have blue and cream couches in my living room and this tree would fit perfectly. This definitely is something I will need to think about – is there a fairly easy way to make this?
I did a search and there is a HomeGoods store in Portland, Oregon, only 3-4 hours away. Do I see a road trip coming? The bonus is Oregon does not have state taxes!
It’s so good to be back!!!!
