My six year old decided to sneak downstairs and roam the hallways because he couldn’t sleep recently as I watched the finale of Stranger Things and had no idea he was lurking.  If you have children and are watching that show please advise them not to do that as it made a somewhat scary show incredibly scary.  Here is a completed family room unrelated to above. : @maxkimbee styling: @heatherchadduck PS... The Never Ending Story singing part is my favorite TV moment of 2019, though.

Recently when I was in a Steve Winwood phase I introduced myself to a “Valerie” as “The same boy I used to be.” No one found it remotely funny and I don’t think anyone other than me understood it...But I still plan on giving it a few more tries here and there.

Speaking of the Lollipop Guild from yesterday... What exactly is a “Lollipop Guild?” Why do we only get to meet a few “representatives” of the guild and no actual leaders?  And why are these representatives still dancing in my nightmares all these years later?  Here is an oceanfront bedroom I’m working on that has nothing to do with anything above.

I am getting really weird about talking about myself in third person so here is a description of this room in second person.... You decorated this room for a young family.  You used a lot of different colors.  You photographed this room with @davidtsay and @lizstrongstyle a while back.  You are currently posting it to Instagram.  You are trying to think of a funny ending to this story, but cannot.  You are at brunch and your food is coming and need to get off your phone.

While I was on the road my kids decided they need a bean bag chair.  They are still trying to decide whether they want a fancy one with a phone charger in it.

The Sagamore Hotel has bathrooms labeled “Buoys” and “Gulls” and I may or may not have spent too much time on the trip calling the kids buoys and gulls.
