Ahhhh, there is nothing like a holiday with a shot of NyQuil.
What I do remember is falling asleep around 5:00am on Thursday morning - and then awaking at 9:00am to take another shot of know, just so I could uh....BREATHE. I have had two terrible colds in as many months -- and I usually only get one cold a year so this is not my idea of fun.

Next thing I knew I was asleep and I heard my daughter saying "Mom, dinner is ready, did you hear me, dinner is ready?!"

I awoke (as awake as one gets when stoned on over-the-counter med's) and lo and behold -- there sat a Tofurkey, veggies, mashed potatoes, gravy and a pumpkin pie.

Then we watched 50 First Dates which is a fun, romantic warm and fuzzy movie...or was that just my temperture rising?

Due to NyQuil I thought the female star of the movie was Kate Hudson the entire time I was watching it --- and I was thinking she no longer looked so much like her mother, Goldie Hawn. Maybe because it was Drew Barrymore. OK, you can imagine the pathetic look my daughter gave me. But she wasn't too hard on me. was Thanksgiving.

From Coffee Table To Cafe Ole Table!

Whew! I have finally completed a project I have been working on a little bit each night.

We were in need of a coffee table in our living space -- and I really like to rummage around finding something unique. Nothing I saw appealed to me -- and then I got my mind set on having a tile table to bring color to our Spanish Eclectic decor. Of course I was not willing to part with the dinero a tile table would set me back!

Sooooo...I decided to make Faux Mexican Tiles...uh... out of paper! Yes. Each of these tiles are painted on watercolor paper :) There are 45 of 'em! And of course it is go ahead, set down that glass of of coffee...and enjoy!

Shopping for Chairs?!

On Halloween Night we decided to go to Disneyland to watch the characters, ride Haunted Mansion, have dinner.....and go shopping for chairs.

OK. So maybe I am kidding about the chairs...but I have been trying to decide what kind of chairs I want in our eating area since I am altering an old oak table.

When I spotted THIS ONE I quickly wanted FOUR! :-)

This "chair" is the actual one used by Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean. I really wanted to sit in it..ya know, just to see how it fit!
