Pop a Squat and Stay Awhile

Clean under the table

With the house hunting, we’ve looked at a few things, not part of the “normal” house shopping, like extendable dining table combos and things like that. I want something either dark wood, or with padded seats. Either or. I’ll take light wood with padded seats without a problem. I’d so prefer a padded seat. The current table set has the most god-awful uncomfortable chairs!

More Future House Dreaming

My husband and I were discussing ceiling fans yesterday. Seriously! We were talking about cheap ways, when we get a house, how to use less AC and heater, and a ceiling fan is one of those easy ways. We both love having a fan in the dining room, and after being at my parents, who had a fan in every room, we loved how that felt.

I’ve found a few Craftmade ceiling fan designs that I adore. One of them, found here, called Brownstone is something I find gorgeous. I think it would look good with the kitchen design I want. I’m wanting a dark blue kitchen with white accents. Our house will have a lot of blue on white, :lol:, and not because I’m a Colts fan, though that is big reason.

There are definitely some interesting and unusual fans out there. Fanimation ceiling fans are just odd, and weird, in my opinion. My parents, in one of their bathrooms (they have 3), has a Tommy Bahama ceiling fan, or something of a similar style. Those are expensive fans. Ouch!!

What kind of ceiling fans do you have? What kind do you like?

Weekly Plans – July 21 – July 27

The Goal: Each week, you figure out what you need to do for the following week. No real point, but it’s a great way of keeping track of plans and things.

Monday, July 21

  • Time to get on that kitchen cleaning. I hate doing dishes. Have I ever said that?
  • I also need to work on tags for Sigs ‘n More members. Been kind of *bleh* about doing them lately it seems 🙁

  • My most hated chore of all, LAUNDRY.

Light Me Up

As most readers know, I currently live in an apartment, but that we plan on buying a house within the next year, hopefully. With the purchase of a house, it means making certain changes, to make the house “ours” rather than “theirs”. One of those changes are to the light fixtures.

I love looking at lighting fixtures. I have no idea why. I think it has to do with the fact that my parents would change a couple and it would change the whole look and feel of the room. They redid the bathroom light fixtures more times than I can count, and it always felt like a new bathroom each time.

When it comes to kitchen light fixtures, or for the dining room, I want chandeliers in at least one room. I don’t care about the size, I just want something that hangs from the ceiling and something pretty.

If you could have the choice of home lighting, what would you choose?
