Today, The Breakfast Room

I love breakfast, I love everything about it. If one is enjoying their breakfast it generally means they are not rushed. Meaning they woke up as they chose, and...basically, it's Saturday.

As a disclaimer, I cannot remember where all of these pictures came from- I may remember where I found some of them, but I cannot remember where they found them...don't judge.

Here is a nice starting place, I love the these slip covers, and the light blue and yellow are bright and cheery. I just can't get enough of these windows.

Interestingly, this next one is also blue. The chandelier is wonderful- and I even like the bottles. I'm surprised by this because I have moved away from that sort of thing...but they work here for some reason. I don't really like that plant in the background, I don't know what it's called by I have one at the office and don't love it.

Seeing this picture with all these doors open just helps me imagine a beautiful morning to a fabulous day with people sitting outside drinking the start to their day. Maybe even children, playing outside while my sisters and I sit around the table and talk about what we're going to wear for family pictures this year. It says family.

I think I may have saved the best for last, because I absolutely love this room. I love the high ceilings, the metal windows, the antique brick floors, the blue chairs, the window treatments- I love this room. I even love the mud room right off the breakfast room/kitchen. It makes eating breakfast as a family convenient. During the race out the door everyone stops for breakfast.... I love that.

Central theme? Blue, windows, love and a happy home.

It's a Wonderful Day (even if it IS snowing)

My little client (we will call AM) did so good today! Fabulous, in fact. We haven't had progress with him in weeks- and today he was 60-80% correct on all his goals. It just makes my day go better...HOWEVER, it will be short lived. I have a mega-test on Thursday and I'm sure that reality will hit soon.

Husband thinks I'm addicted to the internet. Translation: the building will be slowed on my dream house. I'll do a post soon with what I've picked out so far.

OMG, Kelly from Design ties commented on my blog.

Not once, but three times! And I haven't even been posting good blogs- or any for that matter? I feel humbled! Design Ties is one of the fabulous blogs I roll through (when I should be studying and instead and building my virtual dream house), Kelly is one of the blog masters there and an interior designer from Ontario. Kelly did this fabulous post on Vetrazzo countertops, a very green (albeit pricey) alternative to other luxury counter options. She also did this post about brick walls in bedrooms
The above picture that she included in that post has been added to my look book, I absolutely love it. I love everything about this room- the wall to wall sea grass, the lace, iron and lighting... it speaks to me (saying, get out of school and get a job, pauper).

In this post she showcased come client appreciation gifts that inspired me to have some similar ones, but with golf balls, made up for the law firm.

All in all, I love this blog- check it out (maybe kelly will come over to your blog too!)

Th-, th-, th-...

On Tuesday I'm taking over my client for the portion of our session that works on the silent /th/. It's pretty exciting, but it also makes me nervous because even thought articulation disorders are pretty straight forward sometimes I think the production was correct and it was actually wrong-
and sometimes I'm just plain confused and then I feel sorry for the kid because he doesn't know if he did a good or bad placement. We'll see how it goes~
