"Just Keepin' It Real . . . "


It's not always tuxedos and catered dinners around here.  Though it might seem that way to the outside observer.  Some days are madly glamorous, some days are just not.  So, just to prove the point, I thought I'd share two very different pictures of my home from last weekend.

I think most of you are familiar with this first one.  Taken at 8:06 last Saturday night.  Just before the guests began arriving for a cocktail party at my home. 

But, you should also know that just about 24 hours later, at 7:36 on Sunday night when it was just the two of us, starving and tired from a day of cleaning and 'party recovery' - it looked like this -

Just keepin' it real,

Love seeing the spectacular glamour of the first shot but nice to know you're a regular guy!

Just classic! Thank you for the dressed up and the dressed down tables.

Both look equally delightful! There's nothing like a lazy pizza day to recover from a party.

Love the difference. It is nice to see that even with a boxed pizza and soft drink the table is still very elegant.
Love reading the blog.

That pizza box looks fabulous on your table! Just saw the Chronicle story. How cool is that!? I so love those tartan upholstered chairs in the dining room!

Love both decors...fun to have a glamorous, elegant party, but equally as exciting is the laid back, and relaxed one...thanks for sharing both images!!

Y'all are SO sweet - lol - we were just getting ready to sit down to our 'little pizza dinner' and I loved the contrast of the two evenings!

Happy Christmas!
