Random Thoughts for Thursday

Good Morning lovelies! I hope you all have had a great week so far. I was so excited {and thankful} to read each and every comment on my dining room debacle {maybe that's the new name for the project?} and I can't wait to really get started. While I am tied up at work I am constantly thinking about how I can't wait to run by Benjamin Moore, grab my samples and slap that paint up on the wall. Patience. I hope to start on it this weekend. Anyone have any fabulous recommendations for a creamy white/off white {yellow undertones?} that will definitely show a contrast with our trim? 

I made these Buffalo Chicken Tacos for dinner on Tuesday night. Oh my goodness, they were delicious! I saw it last week on A.Liz Adventures and couldn't get it off my mind. I think April and I might have the same tastes because every time she shares a recipe I want to make it as soon as possible. Find her post here, and go here for the recipe. This recipe was 1. so easy and 2. a nice change from our usual taco night {pretty much happens weekly}.

A shot of ours...I'm a simple eater when it comes to tacos...
we only used cheese, avocado and a little sour cream. 



It is supposed to be almost 70 degrees today! That was enough reason for me to put on this self tanner on my legs this morning. Have you used it? Seriously, it's the best. Minimal smell and works like a charm.

While I am obsessed with working on the dining room, I am also dreaming of those days that we will soon be able to sit on the screened in porch after work with a glass of wine in hand. The porch also needs some work but I'm making myself wait until I finish the dining room. Isn't this one fun?

This past weekend I got the second season of Downton Abbey from my parents and I am really restraining myself to not watch the whole thing in one night. Once it's over I know I will be waiting until next winter to watch Season three and that seems like way too long! Season two is just as good, by the way!

Hope you all have a fabulous day....I will be back tomorrow with some Friday Finds! xo.

I'm so glad you loved them, aren't they tasty?

You've inspired me to get working on our screened porch. It's completely empty - EEK! Pinning this image as soon as I get home and looking for more on my beloved Pinterest. :)
