We hosted a bridal shower brunch for my sister-in-law with a pretty easy, Mediterranean-geared menu. For the breakfast-like options: we did egg casserole & french toast casserole that took 15 min to put together, fridge overnight, and then bake 45 min the next morning. Looking back, I would have just picked one casserole. For the lunch-type dishes: we ordered a mozzarella/tomato sandwich tray. Then we did a couscous salad with peppers and feta, which is very budget friendly, because a little couscous goes a long way.

A green salad and/or bagels and cream cheese spread are easy to throw together. As a bridesmaid 8 times, I can tell you those little appetizer ideas, while great for showers, can be really time-consuming either in assembly, transporting safely, setting out the day of...if you have the man-power and delegation skills, it shouldn't be a problem though.

I leave my kitty cat nesting measuring cups out so I can smile every day when I make my coffee. The novelty ice cube trays are great...I have Han Solo in carbonite ones.

I have a similar window area in my dining area. I am lucky enough to have window seats (3) built into the window area. I would totally try to do that (in two pieces for each window) and get a round table with 2 chairs. I like how my round kitchen table accentuates/cozy-fies the window area. I would have the living room seating/furniture make an "L" layout making sure to face both the window and fireplace. I know...confusing.

I still have the dollhouse that my great-uncle built for me. My favorite part was the miniature knick-knacks - a globe, hatboxes, a vase full of flowers. Totally explains the decorating style of my apartment...

Horrible just like kimmiekh's story...my grandparents were moving out of the home they raised my father and uncle in and into an over-50 community. They were following the movers/moving truck in their own car and watched as it caught fire. They lost a lot, but the worst would be all their family photographs. My father's baby photos, my grandmother's & grandfather's family (who were immigrants) pictures...gone.
Makes me greatful that my horror stories are a landlord who didn't check to make sure the prior tenants vacated & moving during the Manayunk Bike Race in Philly.
