I don't like chairs with arms at a dining table. It doesn't feel as intimate.

I have one for my pup, but I purchased it at Toys R Us. They make the same thing for little kids, but it can run between $10-$20 cheaper than the one at Petco. Which only proves that people are willing to shell out more cash for their pets than their kids.

It's a great investment, but buy it at at Toys or Babies R Us and save yourself some cash.

I purchased this one recently from Pottery Barn for $399 http://www.potterybarn.com/products/p9660/index.cfm?pkey=cchandeliers

What I love about it even more is that when I went to Home Depot to purchase a dimmer switch, I saw an almost identical chandelier there (not as many crystals) for $150 more.

I did! I'm in the contest for the "Visions of Super Plum" Ice Cream. Don't think I have enough votes to win, but it was fun to try!

I don't recommend using hotel room drawers to put your clothes in, you can pick up bedbugs from them (not that this is a common occurrence, but you can never be too careful). Regardless of the caliber of hotel, leave your folded clothes in your luggage and never put your suitcase on the bed.

Ben & Jerry's made a sugar plum ice cream, how cool!. I wish I could have tasted it to compare -- and here I thought I was being an original!

By the way, I made my ice cream without an ice cream maker. In fact, I followed instructions from an old Kitchn post:http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/tips-techniques/how-to-make-ice-cream-without-an-ice-cream-maker-026055
it worked best when I let the ice cream set overnight. As this was my first foray into making ice cream, it was quite an interesting challenge!

Can anyone tell me exactly which Benjamin Moore paint was used in the kitchen? I think it would be perfect for my living room.
