There has been some buzz around blog-land the last week or so about Google's Reader being discontinued.  Now I have to confess that I don't begin to understand or use all the features available when I blog but I'm pretty sure that what they're talking about is my reading list that comes up down the left side of my Blogger Dashboard.  The list that I bring up every morning to check out the latest posts from the blogs that I don't want to miss (like yours!)

So yesterday I somehow came across Bloglovin.  When I joined, it asked me if I wanted to import my reading list from Google Blogger.  I said YES!  And this morning when I opened my email -- there was an email from Bloglovin with all the new posts on the blogs I follow.  SUCCESS!

As you can see in the picture, I've covered the couches ($150 total/both from, painted the ceiling & beams, primed the walls and Dr. Love is almost finished installing the chandelier (also from  There's still a lot to do:  sewing window treatments & throw pillows, painting the walls.  And the floor.  Dr. Love will be working on the floor next week.  I'm planning on changing out the table lamps too and I have several possibilities but I'm waiting until everything else is done to see what speaks to me.
