Julie & Julia

Well, I've been slowly getting things done here at the modern farmhouse but today I thought I might relax and watch a movie. I headed to one of my new favorite spots in the nursery to watch the movie. (I will be showing you more of this room in the future)

I watched Julie & Julia with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, and I liked it.

I rented something Adam wouldn't feel left out if I watched it without him. It was really entertaining especially since I'm new at this blogging. It's about a women who blogs about going through Julia Childs cook book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, in 365 days and there are 500 and some recipes. By the way this movie was based on two true stories and around 2003, I didn't even know there was blogging then. Where have I been. So any of you fellow bloggers or non blogger,s I would recommend it. I especially enjoy cooking when I do find the time to, so I think I maybe going to get that cook book.

Which Room?

So I'm a little guilty of shopping too much, but anyone can say that right? ; )
Well, it's a little embarrassing when you try and avoid eye contact with the workers because I can just imagine what is going through their head,
"Wasn't she just in here like yesterday?"

Well it was last week if you really had to know. But they get new things all the time. Any who. I never thought I would be a fan of TJ Maxx but I have found myself there more and more this year and I don't even think that I had ever been to one prior to the past two or so years. I'm kind of the hunt and find type of person and that is definitely a hunt and find store. So here is a couple things I found.
This will probably going in the living room in the TV cabinet

This blanket will either go in the master bedroom or in or hallway room on the daybed I don't have a mattress for

These washcloths are going in the master bathroom. I love all the colors, they make me long for springtime.

These two rugs will either be in the entry, daybed room, or our room. I haven't quite decided.
That's usually how my finds go, my rule of thumb is:
If you'd like this in more than one room of your house, it is probably ok to go ahead and get it.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Two things TJ Maxx:
One- you need bigger carts especially if you have a carseat to lug around
Two- you need automatic sliding doors so I can come and go with a carseat and a basket full of goodies. Or at least have someone open the door for me when you see me struggling:)
