Island Dreaming

I’ve had plenty of time to daydream over the past week and it has given me time to cultivate what my dream Hawaii home would look like…

Clearly, my home would be Oprah’s but it would be moved to be oceanfront property.  She would be welcome to come visit any time with mai tais and Steban (aren’t you always curious what their relationship is really like).

I’m sure the Stebs and Ops would bring their trusty trainer, Bob Green, so he could do laps in my pool, while we drink –

After watching Bobby Boy workout on our behalf, we’d all be hungry and so we’d head for the kitchen…

Looking out from the open kitchen floor plan into our den, there would be Gayle, wanting to chit chat…

Just off of the den, would be another living space, where Dr. Phil would be waiting in case anything went awry –

Uh oh, I think our mai tais are running low, not to worry, I’ve got a stocked bar –


House and Home

It looks like the food is ready from Oprah’s private chef, time for a civilized lunch…


Quadrille Fabrics

I know what all of you guys are thinking…where in the Sam hell is Nate?  Don’t worry, I found him in the bedroom with his perfect beach hair.

All these guests are getting a bit much…geez…looks like I’ll have to sneak away in my get away car…

Put….put…put….and away I go.

    The getaway car is awesome 🙂 Btw we have the chandelier and the glass pitcher in the dining room photo! We can recreate the dream!

    Is it possible to have a vacation home be too perfect? Because a place like this would make me never want to leave…especially if some free Oprah life advice came with the purchase price.

    Hahaha. I love it! I’d totally come visit!
