Curb alert anyone??

After our company left Sunday night DH & I were cruising Craig's List & found a curb alert. So we went & got all this!! How fun!! I had to fix the lamp & looks pretty in my guest room!!

My Laptop has been acting up & thought the hard drive was going?? But don't think my hard drive is bad?? I looked up the error message I'm getting it could be a software conflict or a virus in my boot system. I got a Kodak update Saturday & this all started on Sunday & Monday my anti virus expired?? I installed the new anti virus Monday? Ahhh what the heck do I know??

We had Honey Dijon chicken for dinner yummmy!!

Honey Dijon chicken
4 (4 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Place chicken in an ungreased 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Combine remaining ingredients; pour over chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until juices run clear, turning and basting with pan juices every 15 minutes.
