Happy New Year – and where the heck have I been?

Where have I been?  I don’t even have a good answer! I wish I had some fabulous story like I was whisked aways for a two month journey through Europe … but I must be honest, it has been nothing like that!  Work has been busy, family life has been busy and I have been doing a lot of great projects that I SHOULD be blogging about!

Ok – here is a end of the year wrap up for My Color Coded Life!

How we spent the Holidays –Since we last chatted at Halloween, we spent a great Thanksgiving week in Atlanta.  We traveled down by train and Olivia loved it!

In addition to fabulous cooking (new recipes to be shared in another post) we also visited Lego Land in Atlanta.

My sisters and I have also been working on a compilation of all of our Thanksgiving / Fall recipes into a big family cookbook/scrapbook.  More details on this will come in another post too!

Christmas was wonderful – great times with family and friends around the dinner table and Christmas trees.

My Color TV






Shows I am still watching on current TV – 
Scandal, Nashville, The Carrie Diaries, Awkward, Grey’s Anatomy, Law & Order SVU,  White Collar, Suits, Parenthood, Mad Men

Noteworthy moments – Jackson Avery on Grey’s – stop – she doesn’t deserve you! Will Lexington on Nashville – it gets better!  Olivia and Fitz on Scandal – The Vermont Years?  (I’m #TeamJake – I know that’s not popular.)

Shows I stopped DVRing and or caring about Revenge – all fall I tried to care, but I cancelled the recording on my DVR – I didn’t care who shot Emily. Once Upon a Time – I think I need to wait until this series is over and binge watch it during a summer.  I taped the whole first half of the season of Betrayal – but haven’t watched a single episode … tell me – is it worth it?

Shows I am ten years behind on and watching on Netflix – 
I just finished Southland –  love that Ryan Atwood, Lucas Scott and Ponyboy Curtis were all on one show together!
Chicago Fire is next up in my Netflix queue.  And I better get on it because Chicago PD is starting – a spinoff of both Chicago Fire and SVU.

My House Makeover –  I am ready to write posts revealing Olivia’s bedroom and our Living Room. I am waiting to take Christmas decorations down to showcase the work we did on each room.  Next up this spring and summer – turning our garage into storage and our laundry facilities and converting the basement into a Family Room.  Follow my inspirations on these projects on Pinterest : Basement Makeover and Garage / Laundry Room 




cards to frame

Craft Projects on the HorizonFinally getting around to framing all the different OWL cards Olivia has received.  I owe my friend Courtney a 500th Comment Contest Prize from MONTHS ago, planning a Valentine’s Tea Party for Olivia and some of her friends, and making my hubby’s Valentine’s Day present -which was suppose to be his 5th wedding anniversary present, then his Christmas present!! (I also have started a secret Pinterest board for Olivia’s third birthday already! Details and the theme reveal to come!!)


From My Color Coded Life’s family to yours – wishing you an excellent 2014!
