I Am A White House Christmas Decorator

  I am a very important person.  At least that is what I tell my husband and my sister in- law, repeatedly.  The fact that I need to constantly remind them of this has not gone unnoticed.  You see, I decorated the White House for Christmas this year and this now makes me an expert on many things.  When asked how long I would milk this for I thoughtfully replied “until the end of December”.  I texted my sister in-law from an extremely long, long line in Chipotle asking her “didn’t they know who I was?”  She texted back I should wear my White House 2014 Christmas work apron wherever I go.  I was wearing my laminated White House 2014 Christmas ID badge and lanyard but maybe she had a point, maybe the lanyard wasn’t enough. However, due to 67 different bouts of the flu I didn’t get out much in December so I started wearing my lanyard and apron in the house–just in case my family forgot my powerfulness.  Since it is now January, …


2015 Pantone Color of the Year-Marsala

  The new trending color for 2015 is Marsala. Pantone Color of the Year 2015— You can click on that link and the nice people over at The Pantone Color Institute can tell you A LOT about “Marsala”.  I’ll just say that it is a reddish-brown, earthy, and kind of neutral color (it can go with a lot) and makes me think of chicken.

Live Your Fun

Cue me singing in an operatic voice. Cue sunshine streaming. Orchestra music swells. Drumroll. Joyousness resounding. Puppies leaping. Kittens rolling. Happy. Bright. Colombian Coffee and Cocktails for all my friends! This is what it’s like over here…Bella Home Staging moved to a new place.  Where everybody knows your name, it is EASY being green (shout out to Kermit), and the grass is greener on OUR side–not the other.  There are no mean girls, bad bosses, to do lists don’t exist, and the laundry is always finished.  We have butlers over here filling up your cup so it’s always full–none of this half empty crappola–ain’t nobody got time for that. We are practically at the corner of happy and healthy–move over Walgreens. We still like coveting other people’s mighty fine homes, we still aspire for good taste and style…life is too short for ugly, and we still think our deep thoughts.  But we do it with a mariachi band and a margarita now. Whoop Whoop! Our new place is Live Your Fun.  We like mixing it …
