Preview of Coming Attractions

This weekend I bought a gallon of paint. (Sherwin-Williams was having a 40% off sale.) But I'm not going to tell you where it's going just yet.

In other news, I just read that HomeGoods is opening its first Austin(ish) store on October 24, down in Sunset Valley. I've only been to HomeGoods once, when I was in San Antonio this summer, but it was love at first sight. Particularly when I first spied the pear lamp.

And in news that has nothing to do with the house, tonight was the last Splash and Dash of the season. I finally made a dent in the not-so-impressive times I've been posting all summer -- about two minutes off, despite a slower course this time around. All of the running (and some swimming) I've been doing is finally paying off. Hopefully that bodes well for this weekend's triathlon, a 10k in a few weeks, and the rest of the races leading up to February's marathon.


  1. Who made the Pear lamp from Home Goods? It is adorable! Where can I find it?

    1. Unfortunately, I don't know. I've had it (two of them, actually) for nearly three years now, and I don't see a name or identifying information anywhere.
