Reasons to Smile

My new boots..............

I really love them. I searched high and low for the perfect pair. I even found a great scarf to go with them. I want to wear both everyday. But I haven't.

Next up? Heirloom limas...............

My dad grew these in his garden! I've never seen purple or pink lima beans! I couldn't get over the colors. Now I'm trying to convince him to plant some heirloom pumpkins next year.

Third reason to smile............marching band competitions..............

Now you might be asking, "Danavee, WHY did you spend your Saturday at a band competition when you no longer HAVE to go?"

The answer is simple. I still love it. I love the band directors I worked with and my colorguard girls. I miss them, and I HAD to cheer them on. The Tiger Pride Marching Band did an AMAZING job at Ozarko yesterday, placing 2nd in their division and advancing to finals. Their show is outstanding and extremely fun to watch. GO RHS BAND!

Lastly, one more reason to smile...........old stuff with faded, chipping paint............

I bought the trunk awhile back at Leola's and haven't regretted it for one second. It was a little pricey, but it's RED and OLD. It's an excellent coffee table (with storage as a bonus). I knew it would match my sofa perfectly. This particular living area is starting to take shape. Now all I need are my hardwood floors to be installed and the walls to be de-wallpapered and painted. I think it'll be my favorite room after it's all said and done.


  1. That trunk is cute! I need you to teach me how to decorate. My house is plain, plain, plain.

  2. Love the trunk!!! You ARE really good at picking out furniture... ahem, ahem.

  3. Love your boots! I wear mine ALL of the time... I would like to venture into the world of scarves but I don't feel cool enough yet.

    LOVE the red chest! If my little place could only hold more furniture.... with chippy paint.

  4. I think I need to come over and check out all the new/changed things since I have been there last!
