Blogging Space Needed...

Happy Weekend!

Yes, it is Saturday night, and yes I am blogging at home. I know that sounds borderline sad but its been a busy week and the FIN is feeling fluish (which means GERMS...) so I am trying to steer clear of any bacterial grossness that may be happening. I told myself that I am going to try maintain a better disposition/bed-side manner when it comes to be sickly/icky feeling but all I want to do is Lysol everything and bathe in Purell, and if the FIN would allow I would gladly sanitize/disinfect everything. Even though the Cats lost AGAIN today it has been a relaxing Saturday, I have been cleaning and re-cleaning all afternoon. There is still some snow/salt on the sidewalks and anytime I leave and come back into my apartment I always seem to track the grime in with me. I have gotten to where I take my shoes (in this weather Uggs) off at the door before I get into the apartment so I wont have to continually wipe the floors down. Another reason I am ready for warmer weather, no salt residue to clean off of the floor.

In other news, I have been perusing my favorite home magazine websites lately and apparently being a "blogger" is fairly trendy and is now requiring adequate space. I know that I blog from my corner chair but thats out of necessity since my apartment is a spacious 540sq feet. Sure I could sit on the couch or lay in bed to blog but I have taken a strong liking to my patterned chair.

Wonderful memories...

On some of the home websites I found some wonderful blogging corners/cubbies that I would love to occupy at some point. I joked with FIN about him having an office in our future home and that I would also need a space that I could work quietly and collect my thoughts while blogging/crafting/reading. I had no idea that home office spaces had become so trendy, and it gives me inspiration to put my previously un-discovered decorator talents to use.

LOVE the animal print rug and white claw foot table...
Closet office, literally. Small but very functional...
Clean and practical...
Roomy and bright... 
I'm not a huge pink person, but I could "blog" in an office like this.
Family friendly...
A lovely little corner... 

I have been saving magazines snippets from home catalogs for years (literally since freshman year in college) in preparation for home-ownership one day and I have since started a folder on my desktop of online photos. I am a browser by nature (the FIN isn't always fond of my dwadling) and if I am not careful I could get lost looking at home/interior design magazines. Since the wedding is less than 5 months away I should be reading books "Cooking for Dummies" but its hard to get past the first few pages and there aren't any pictures.

I hope everyone has had a great Saturday!
Happy Weekend!
LOVE, MKH
