New Look and Giveaway!

With a New Year comes some changes. In 2009 I posted about the Most Comforting Things in my Home as part of Sherrie's Comfort Week and who can blame me for picking my fish tanks, which at the time I had 4! I am still comforted by my fish tanks but with a full time job and PhD to finish, I was doing the bare minimum to keep them healthy. So when a co-worker approached me about advice on setting up a tank, I offered to sell her my 50 gallon bedroom tank! So my space went from this...
to this..
It is a lot quieter without the noise of the pumps and feels roomier and brighter. I am happy with the change and I hope our friends will be happy with their new tank! They are coming to pick it up tonight with the bonus of a Mexican feast! I have so many cool recipes to post...Diego made Longaniza (a type of sausage) from scratch and we have some hanging to dry! If only I had more hours in a day... I will post some recipe soon though!

In the mean time check out this valentine soap giveaway that Teresa organized to raise awareness of her sister's shop. What a sweety! I wish she was my sister! :)

Have a great weekend!


  1. I know you miss your fishes, but wow!! that space now looks like something out of House Beautiful! Love it.

    Thank you soooo much for posting about my giveaway! You know, it'd would be great to have you as a sister...we have a lot of the same ideals, plus I love being related to smart people! :)

  2. Thanks Teresa! I am quite happy with my new all I need are new handles on the dresser and it will be like a new piece of furniture!

    Consider me your Halifax sister! You are welcome to visit anytime! :)
