Hi Everyone! I am so excited to kick off a new weekly series sharing fun finds around the internet universe. It will post over the weekend and is appropriately titled The Week-ends. Sometimes it will be local Colorado finds or stories, but most of the time it’s just a fun blog post that made me laugh out loud or a really cool decor hack. If you are featured I will do my best to give you heads up via an email. And, this new series kicks off with a free sample too!
So let’s get started! Let’s start with new year resolutions. Did you make any? My first resolution is to organize my office, desk, and calendar. Oh and get up earlier to work out first thing in the morning… fewer excuses. I just found a desk calendar at Home Goods so that’s a start. I also unloaded a few boxes at Goodwill. Of course, I headed back to HomeGoods the end of the day and found a few Christmas finds. Geez Louise Eloise!
Here’s a few things that caught my eye when the Week-ends…
Who knew so much cuteness could be packed into 396 square feet?
Check out this list by Jen to get you organized.
And, if you are thinking about painting your kitchen? It’s your lucky day because BH&G shares kitchen paint color inspiration …just click this way.
And, if you are looking ahead for a fun, bitesize party food idea for a SuperBowl party ideas check out video.
Sadly, us Denver Bronco fans have our eye on the draft.
I had to sneak a little self-promotion in with this super easy peel & stick tile project. It’s perfect for the little nooks and niches that need a little help. Here’s that free sample I teased you with earlier. Here’s a peek at the basement bar. That is real stone tiles that are a “peel & stick” application.
Finally, I had to share a fun family activity we did over the holidays. Have you heard of the Escape Rooms popping up around the cities?
Basically, we paid to get locked in a 10×10 room. Each room has a theme and a mystery or problem to solve to get the keys to escape the room. Our escape room was one of several located inside a previously occupied medical practice. Maybe that’s the real mystery?
At one point it looked like a scene from the Imitation Game with us throwing up numbers on a chalkboard to find the clue to unlock a lock that is suppose to get us closer to unlocking the door.
And, sadly we didn’t come close to getting out inside sixty minutes. We had 5 mathletes in the room, but let’s just say if you have an error in the math you were not getting out in sixty minutes. My niece told me she is signed up for a Titanic theme escape ship with 1st and 3rd class passengers fighting to escape the Titanic first. That Escape theme requires 10 people… I mean passengers.
Happy New Year! Have you done an Escape Room?
