When you don't feel glamourous

You can at least look at someone else who is.

I loved these pics in Glamour mag.

Natalie Portman looks gorgeous, glamourous, sweet but sexy in these new adverts.
She kind of makes me want to highlight my hair and stick a bow in it.
(Don't worry, I won't. It would never look like this)

And this fabulous shot was one of many

Astrid (like Jan's baby on the office?) Berges-Frisbey
( the new Pirates of The Carribean movie) had a beautiful layout
in this month's issue. I love this layered sheer and sparkly dress-
wish I could see the whole thing.

And while I may be actually schlubbing around the house in my baggy capris and faded t-shirt I do have to admit to one thing. My kitchen makes me feel slightly glamourous.
It is much more fun to cook in a kitchen with space.

The island is so great for setting out food when my kids have friends over, or for working on when I am making dinner. I did not have anything like this before, so it really feels like a luxury to me. I am still getting used to where to put things and how to get around.
When you live in one place for 16 years you can do anything with your eyes closed.
Now I feel clumsy and awkward, but I am not complaining one bit!

I am logging in and blogging from this corner. Strangely, I don't get quite as distracted (for hours and hours) because when I am in my kitchen I kind of get reminded of what is around me and needing to be done. I think that is a good thing. I think.

We are still back and forth trying to empty out the old house and start the home improvements. We leave early and fall into bed exhausted late.....
I am counting down the days to spring break and not because I am going on a great vacation......I think I may stay in bed for the whole week. Maybe read in my tub or sleep on my couch.
I just want to enjoy my new my own pace.
Hope you are looking forward to spring too.

enjoy your space today

It's nice to see the whole kitchen like that. I bet you are in heaven cooking and hanging around there. I think you will begin to notice that when you have a roomy kitchen that's where everyone wants to be. It looks lovely!

9 times out of 10 I feel un-glamorous but these pics sure are fabulous and glamorous. I LOVE your new kitchen!! What I wouldn't give to have counter space to cook, entertain on. *jealous* Now I will have to go and repent.

I am super jealous of your island. I want one to put a pot rack above it.

Natalie Portman is simply one of the most gorgeous creatures alive. Wish I could pull off a bow, too.

I have always wished I could be a bit more glam. Such is not my lot is this life. Maybe the next:)

Your kitchen is just stunning you should feel like a glamor queen when there!
Sending a hug your way my sweet friend.

Can't WAIT to see the new place! Yes, I'm growing up. One of my laurels even told me, when I said I was, in fact, on facebook..."Oh I think it's so cute when adults have Facebook accounts." WHAT??#$%#$^^

When did THAT happen?

Miss you.
