Lots of random thoughts today! We are on the hunt for patio furniture. We moved to a new house this past Oct, from a three-story cluster. At our old home, we had a double-deck, but no backyard, so we have very little patio furniture. I’m told NOW is the time to buy patio furniture, so I’m on the hunt! Here are some sets I’ve found online that I like.
I found this set at Overstock.com
I’ve been looking at lots of sites online and, shocker, I even started a patio furniture Pinboard on Pinterest!Yes, I gave the site a scathing review a few weeks ago, but now that I’ve spend a little time on it and learned how to use it, I’m a believer! You can check out my Patio Furniture Pinboard Here!
Also, this weekend is the Great Big Home and Garden Expo at the IX Center here in Cleveland.
We go every year to get ideas for our home. The displays are always very impressive! Two years ago, I MC’d an event at the show with Cheryl Tiegs. That’s when I was still working at Fox 8. Here’s a picture of us on stage…we coincidentally dressed alike! She was a spokesperson for Cambria Quartz Countertops at the time. She was very friendly and we had a good time! The only strange thing? She told me she hates all sweets and chocolate! I don’t think we could ever be friends! haha
Next Whatever Wednesday….I tried BB Cream! I blogged about it last month and you can read all about the new beauty balm that is the latest “it” item, here.
I found one that was only $12.99 at Target. It is the Garnier BB Cream.
I used it yesterday and I really like it. It is light…not at heavy as a tinted moisturizer, but is great for just running errands or as a primer or sunscreen. I also like the price…much better than some I saw online going for more than 70 bucks!
Ok…lots of different topics in Whatever Wednesday! Any patio furniture recommendations? I’d love to hear them!
I just heard about Pinterest (www.pinterest.com) about two weeks ago. We were out to dinner with some friends and a girlfriend of mine told me I had to join it. The next day, I went online to check it out, but, oh no, you can’t just join it. You have to be “invited”. I got an email saying I would be put on a “waiting list”. What is this…some hot club in New York City?
I finally got the green light to join and I signed up last night. My friend Stacey told me I just had to get on Pinterest. She said, “Everybody’s doing it and we need to stay current.” Lord help us.
When I got on the site, I found it jumbled and confusing. There was stuff everywhere. For those of you that don’t know, it’s basically a site where you can find pictures of anything you like on the internet, be it pictures, recipes, videos, and then post or “pin”, (as the site calls it) those images on a virtual board. People are obsessed with it.
As I scrolled through the pages, I felt like I do when I walk into a TJ Maxx or a Nordstrom Rack. There’s junk everywhere, and I can’t seem to see through the clutter to get a good look at what is actually there. I usually walk out of the Max and the Rack pretty quickly, and that’s exactly what I did last night with Pinterest…I logged out!
However, I am going to give it another shot, for fear that I won’t stay “current”. haha I actually came across a blog today that offers a great tutorial on Pinterest. Check out http://www.2wired2tired.com She can explain the site better than I can!
