Hello, friend! I am in San Diego…reporting my FUN five faves with Cindy and Annie. They include new Studio McGee Home Accessories At Target (with texture and organic basics), what to watch, cook, and more!
1. “MOVIN’ ON UP” to a Deeluxe Apartment In the Sky
My sister, Teresa’s new place in San Diego is pretty fancy! We are here helping her decorate it. Her new sofa and chair won’t be here for about 11 more weeks but at least I can show you some of the common areas of the new apartment complex.
It’s near University Town Center (da mall) and we have already walked over twice to eat in a couple of the many restaurants (great stores too). I am happy for this new lifestyle change for Teresa.
2. Best New Studio McGee Home Accessories At Target
I love these new neutral, textured basics to update things at a good price.
Linen Tray • French Welcome Mat • Wooden Fruit Bowl • Checked Boxes • Straw Tote (Cute for Spring…even on a hook near the door) • Scented Candle (wild iris and santal–good reviews) • Jute Floor Runner • Ceramic Off-White Vases Love these.• Bamboo Arched Mirror (24″ x 34″ nice for a powder room)• Basket (16″ x 16.5″ place to drop things like shoes by the front or back door?)
We got this cute lamp for Teresa’s kitchen counter.
3. Morning Cup Ritual
Many years ago, I casually mentioned to Howard “Rick brings Debbie coffee in bed every morning.” And every day since, guess who also gets a cappuccino in bed? 🙂 I know I am lucky!!
4. What to Watch: Reacher
It’s on Prime Video. We almost didn’t start watching it as the lead character seems a little too “beef cakey” but boy does he grow on you. It’s for mature audiences.
“Jack Reacher, a veteran military police investigator, has recently entered civilian life when he is falsely accused of murder.” It takes place in a small town in Georgia.
Howard wanted to make this fairly easy dish for Teresa and me in her new apartment (nice and homey). He likes the smaller clams called cockles from Whole Foods. It was delicious!
Howard served it with toasted French bread and a Fresh Fennel and Orange Salad.
