Saturday Seven


1. Mad Men: Season Four came out on DVD on Tuesday. D and I watched the first episode last night and the most exciting thing for me is the new Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce offices. The furniture and fixtures are amazing. When I see something I like, I just have to name it out loud so while watching, I was just randomly saying, “Couch. Table. Chair.” It is probably annoying.

2. I’ve been thinking of making this my profile picture on Twitter and Facebook but D was not nearly as amused by it as I am.

3. I went a little nuts at the Benjamin Moore store on Wednesday with paint swatches and then randomly bought three paint samples: November Rain (way too cool), Nantucket Gray (too dark) and Guilford Green (way too green). The first swatch up there is one I thought I had already decided on, Coastal Fog.

4.  I talked to Heather, calmed down a bit and bought two larger paint samples at Home Depot today (who happily matched the Benjamin Moore colors for me) in Coastal Fog (my original choice) and Sweet Spring (a slightly more green choice).

5. I asked what type of primer I should get to paint over red and the worker at Home Depot recommended Kilz Gold so we picked up a gallon of that as well. She made a comment about the former owners painting the walls red and I said, “Oh, no that was me.” I can’t wait to say good-bye to Roasted Pepper (Behr).

There is no turning back now.

6. Have you heard of Pinterest? You should join it now. Here is a good explanation of what it is.

7. Today was a rare Saturday without a lot of plans. We ran errands and I was able to get this shot of my three favorite people in the world. I so wish I was able to show you their cute faces.

  1. I think I have a comment for each every point here…
    1. Hello 60’s! I can’t wait to get my hands on season 4. I almost invited myself over last night to watch it with you, but I restrained myself. It would have been so hard to watch just one and then have to wait forever until our library got it in stock.
    2. Do it.
    3. Um…I don’t know what you were thinking with these green green green colors.
    4. Much better. As much as I love Coastal Fog, I’m a big fan of Sweet Spring. It’s a toss up for me.
    5. Do you want my edging help?
    6. Thanks for the shout out! 🙂
    7. I have seen these darling faces and I can’t wait until you have the freedom to share them with everyone else. Saturdays without plans are the best.

  2. hilarious – i’ve been following you on the podcast since you started and ummm…. scary….

    i just painted over my gorgeous “wine” (read burgundy-garnet) walls with minted lemon — green (which i love :))… but i do live in florida so the tropical colors are a bit more apropeaux

    we bought the high end behr paint w/ primer in it – it easily covered in 2 coats – well worth the extra money! (it covered even the change in color – from taupe to wine)

  3. I love that picture!!! I’d love it much more if I could see their faces, but I can tell it’s awesome. You should frame it.
    My kids are the only people requesting my songs, too. It’s great, isn’t it! We like hymns at bedtime so they learn them. “Come Thou Fount” was our g0-to song for the first few years, until they referred to it as a “bedtime song” when we sang it at church. 🙂
