Feeling Pretty Darn Good ...

So I'm feeling pretty good right now 'cause we finally locked in a house this weekend! In the beginning we weren't sure if we were going to buy or rent but we decided to rent first which alleviated so much stress! The house we found is super cool and the owners are awesome. In fact, it turns out that we all went to the same schools (they're just a few years older so I didn't know them) growing up and shared some of the same teachers. And how funny is this, my fourth grade teacher's daughter lives next door. I swear everyone is separated by only one degree these days. So now I have a moving date in sight and can plan and schedule like a mad woman. Plus, I've been thinking of all my decorating options, cannot wait. Speaking of decorating...

Did you catch the first episode of Emily's new show Secrets From a Stylist? I'm giving it three thumbs up and here's why:
1. HGTV needed this fresh, young(er) approach to decorating.
2. There's a whole audience that can identify with Emily as opposed to say Candice or Genevieve. No offense, I actually like Candy and Gen, but you can't deny the style difference.
3. And lastly, there's a fun, creative method to Emily's way of approaching design. I loved how she asked Ian to name a movie he could see himself living in.

I immediately started racking my brain and decided that my ultimate house would be one part Something's Gotta Give, to two parts Cameron's house in The Holiday with a healthy splash of Kelly Wearstler. A bit kooky? What movie could you see yourself living in?
