Divorcing Diva

Did your heart skip a beat with my latest title? I got a good laugh out of it. So, I guess you could say we're halfway through the summer season. Most shows have already started, except for Mr. Diva's favorite Mad Men, so I feel like it's time to pass some judgment.

On the chopping block:

Burn Notice
I've been trying to stay faithful to Michael Westen and crew, but when I fast forward through a good chunk of the show, I know it's time to move on. Mr. Diva is always pushing me to watch less crime, so here's to purging.
Top Chef
Tommy C I love ya, but last week's challenge with all the former cheftestants was a waste. While I love Big Kenny, I just don't feel the love for the teams or the food. Please pack your knives and leave my DVR.

I heart me some Ari Gold, but we're past the points hugging it out. The show needs a serious shot of adrenaline, but I just can't stay around until that happens.

With three shows gone, it only means one thing...time to find some fillers! Any suggestions? Trust me the Tivo will be running over come September and the new fall line up. I'm a TV junkie after all.

Renovation Diva

Whew! It's amazing I can even find the energy to post today. After 2 weeks of demo, tiling and the like, I'm exhausted, but thankfully have a polished sunroom to show for it! To start we had a sunroom with lime green walls, stained cream carpet and the ever dreadful cat door. Now, we have a freshly tiled room with creamy yellow walls and wide windows open to the backyard. It is the perfect place for enjoying the internet or the weekend WSJ on Saturday morning!

Tile: Home Depot special, Walton 12 x 12 tile
Paint: Benjamin Moore in Yukon Gold
Furniture: Kona Outdoor Living Collection from World Market
Pillows: Purchased from JC Penney last season

Next up: The kitchen, but don't be looking for pictures anytime soon. I'm going to enjoy my clean house for awhile!

Demolition Diva: Part 3

Just a quick update from the tile front: The tile has been laid by the ever slow handyman and I've tackled the grout as you can see in the picture. Like any good producer knows, DON'T give away the final reveal, so you'll just have to make do with this yet to be fully cleaned tile shot. The more I get into this project, the more I'm certain this will be my last DIY tile project. I mean the mess it creates it's just too much for this OCD Diva! Thankfully, I'll have some toned arms to show for it.
