The List 2012

As I reflect upon 2012 and prepare to usher in the new year, I decided to come up with my Top 10 List of things that I would like to see (or hear) less of. Preferably none at all actually.
Drum roll please...

Top 10 things I'd like to see/hear less of in 2013

10. Skinny jeans. 
They really ARE not for everyone.

9. Dance Moms

8. "I only buy if it's on sale. What? No sale today?" 
If you can't afford it when it's full price, then you shouldn't have it in the first place. 
It's not the last piece of bread on earth and you're not dying on starvation.

7. Doorbusters

6. Tory Burch

5. Honey Boo Boo

4. The phrase: "Seriously?" 

3. Justin Bieber

2. 50 Shades of... (anything). 
Come on people, there are better things to read out there!

1. Kim Kardashian

Happy New Year everyone! May the new year bring all of us happiness, love, less taxes, bigger paychecks, good mental and physical health, and vacations! 

Brown Elephant in the Room

We have this enormous chair. It seats 1.5 people very comfortably and comes with a matching ottoman. But it's in a rather interesting brown/olive green pattern fabric that only works in huge spaces. The chair was a gift. It used to be in my brother-in-law's 2-story huge family room, but then they replaced it with a leather one and we needed comfy manly size furniture for our basement (aka the man cave because there is a bar in it) so the chair migrated over to our house. It used to live down the basement. Two basement misfortunes later (of a wet variety) and the chair was rescued to the upstairs living room. It didn't exactly go with anything (we have modern interior) but it was comfortable to sit in to read a book to our son or relax with a cuppa. Sometimes I would move it from one corner to another corner trying to improve upon living room layout (still work in progress).
