When you don't have cable, but you do have dependents well below the drinking age, you have to get a little creative if you want to watch a big production like The Olympics or say, The Super Bowl. Take a tip from my guy, he just shot a generic email out to a bunch of friends asking "When can we come over? Jeanice has offered to cook". And then waited for the first reply.
Ding-dong! We're here!!!
If I was half the woman I pretend to be, I would have remembered to take pictures of the Super Bowl spread that came together tonight: hot nachos, meatball sandwiches, beet salad, and some football shaped cake pops that tasted just like old-school Ding-Dongs. What I did remember to take pictures of is my friend M's house - one that I helped her with several years ago. I've been meaning to take pictures of it for some time but - ding dong - only just got to it tonight.
One of the reasons I love this space is because the end result is such a huge departure from the original space. (Scroll down to see the before pictures.) The only piece that stayed was the piano. M. loves fashion but was not comfortable taking the same sort of risks in her living room as she might stepping out of her house. She was, however, very open to suggestions and willing to take some leaps outside her comfort zone with a little hand-holding. The end result is a fun and flirty living space that draws from her feminine style and plays up her family's happy energy.
