The Talk About Nothing

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Here's one of my favorite movie quotes of ALL time..."The odd thing about this form of communication is that you're more likely to talk about nothing than something,but i just wanted to say that all of these nothings have meant more to me than so many somethings" -You've Got Mail
This is what I relate blogging to. Each day, I can ramble and blabber on about a multitude of "nothings" yet that is what means a lot--the little things, the daily tasks, what you're thinking about at a certain moment...thanks for giving me an outlet to air whatever I've got going on. So, on to a bunch of other little somethings:

1. I painted my nails yesterday the perfect shade of springtime color--Elephantastic Pink via OPI--hello pop of pink!
2. My first bridal shower is 4 days away and seriously I must be grinning from ear to ear because I am that excited! Friends and family are coming into town and I can't wait to be surrounded with some very special people...definitely feeling very blessed

3. Tonight we are taking clients out to dinner at a local greek restaurant...I've never been a big fan of olives or hummus and have yet to eat meditteranean-style, so I'm anxious to see how this turns out

4. I gave in and watched Dancing with the Stars last night and was shockingly surprised--these people have rhythm and I think it's going to be a fun season. Ralph {AKA the Karate Kid} was so cute on the dance floor, Kirstie Alley shook what her mama gave her and looked good doing it--yay footwork!, and Kendra, oh Kendra...I love her, but please learn some new moves other than the booty shake...I want you to do well!! 

5. For those of you who watch Bethenny Ever After, please tell me you were rolling on the floor laughing when they went to Nurse Gina's church?? I was horrified for them--they were snatching that baby from them and doing all these crazy song and dance numbers...I would've freaked out, too!

6. My Jeffrey comes home today...he was in Knoxville for work and it's so weird when he's not at home--I just don't feel the same so yay for my honey coming back!

7. I had a few of you ask me to post my recipes from what I cooked on Sunday...but sadly, it's the store bought stuff for the most part--the Buitoni tortellini with prosciutto and cheese tossed in a bit of basil pesto, olive oil and montreal seasoning steak baked in the oven, a ready made salad, and my semi-homemade sweet potato casserole seen here--hope I didn't disappoint you too much!

8. I wanted to play along with Taylor at The Undomestic Momma today for her Top 2--My Favorite Dream Rooms...that's an easy one for me as these are bookmarked for the dream house we'll hopefully get to build one day ;)
I want this tub more than you can imagine...this says RELAXATION in every sense of the word to me and I would soak here for hours if I had a master bathroom like this--so calming, so serene...ahhhhhh
And for as much as I love to cook and entertain, I love everything about this dining room...simple and chic and loads of white cabinetry to store china and serving pieces and heirlooms from our families...I could eat in here everynight and never get tired of that amazing chandelier!


  1. Poor Bryn! It was nice of them to go to Gina's church, but I would have gone crazy too!

  2. loving that color nail polish! so excited for spring colors and bright pinks and maybe even try out an aqua color for a nice weekend?! i'm wild, i know!

  3. Those rooms are gorgeous! I'm in love haha. Happy Tuesday!

  4. That bathtub is TO DIE for. I need one of those pronto! I too can't wait for a dream house some day. Until then, I will also continue to bookmark everything I love. :)

  5. I would have flat out DIED if I had been in Bethenny's shoes! Talk about awkward and uncomfortable! It was a sweet gesture that just went a leeettle bit too far!

    I'm right there with ya on that master bath. Heaven!

  6. I love Mediterranian food just becuase feta makes it betta ;) Hehe!

    Love the polish, love those gorgeous rooms, yay on the baby shower, and I adore Bethenny. I'm an episode behind, but every time I was I crack up. She's great!
