Pink Saturday 5/22/2010

Happy pink saturday and a special thank you to Beverly of How Sweet The Sound for reminding me of PS. I've been a bit lax and ditzy recently so I'm gonna blame it on th' trip to California and getting back into the swing of things. DUH!!

This past week I visited Kathy of Life in the Slow Lane and Elaine at At Home with Elaine. Thank you. And this is NOT a trend, chicks!
Okay, so it ain't all pink; adjust!

I have some photos from an old magazine that I've scanned to show you some darling rooms. This one is a beach type bathroom in a startling shade of green. (I said adjust!)

A little girl's bathroom with murals and lots of faux painting.

Even a little quilt is painted above the tub. Isn't it darling?

No fabric curtains needed; just paint them on. Clever, est il pas?

Another bath just as adorable with the two children of the house painted on the ceiling as if they were looking down into the room.

And although I'm tag and award free, I can be a sucker for a pretty face! :-) So I promised Sherry from Alabama over on her blog that I'd accept her sweet award.

I found this "getting to know you" over on Lara's blog and thought that it was kind of cute and kind of interesting so I'm participating. Visit her blog to learn more about it.

1. The most expensive thing hanging in my closet is.....?
Surely you jest. There isn't one thing in my closet over $50 now. I go for cheap usually since moving to Idaho, where "dressed up" is a crease in your jeans!

2. Have you ever played a team sport?
Nuuuuuu, and never want to. I don't want to break a nail or get my eyelashes dirty.

3. If you were a bug, what kind would you be?
I really don't want to be a bug since everyone is always trying to kill you, but if I had to choose I think ladybug would be nice, although, I'd prefer a red or pink shell instead of orange. ;-)

4. Where on your body is the worst place to get sunburned?
My face, definitely. It causes wrinkles and I've got all I ever want to have now.

5. Are you happy?
I'm so happy people think I'm clueless! What's there to be unhappy about anyway? I smile and jest with people. Why, just a couple of weeks ago in Barnes and Noble an employee in the ladies room told me she liked my very bright pink t-shirt. I told her my whole world is pink because it's my favorite color. She replied that I must be happy. I said, "You betcha, sweetpea!" I think I made her day. I'm always smiling.

6. People are always abbreviating..are there any abbreviations that make your skin crawl when people use them?
It isn't exactly an abbreviation but I can't stand it when people say "no problem." The proper response is "thank you" not "no problem." But I think an abbreviation that is overused is TTYL. Don't like that either. I usually say "goodbye" to a person. Much better.

7. Do you love where you live..or could you live anywhere?
I absolutely love where I live—Idaho. Just wonderful living here. Seattle area would be a good choice if I could afford it, but Idaho is a great place to live.

8. What, if any, extreme measures do you go to to keep yourself from overeating when you're full?
I don't do anything. I usually know my limit and stop. There are times when I overindulge and regret it though. Miserable when that happens.
