Happenings

Hello my sweet lovelies! I thought I should check in and let you all know whats going on here. I had a dnc yesterday and was at the hospital for a good part of the day. This whole experience has been the hardest thing in my life, but I know God can use my testimony to share with others who are struggling. I have complete faith that Evelette will have a sibling. I mean I have four adopted brothers and they are God's special gift. I think adoption is a beautiful thing. We were going to adopt anyways, so the plan hasn't really changed. I am excited to recover and heal and get back to trying cause I ain't no quiter!!!! : )
You know I haven't been feeling the greatest when I (Leah) have projects piling up. It's so not in me to just have unfinished things lying around! So I thought I would share some of my ideas. Again you guys need to tell me if I am CRAZY becasue I have been on some meds!
My absolutley amazing Mother (who can find anything at Goodwill, seriously she should start a business) found me a matching wicker peacock chair at the Goodwill aka "GW". I am thinking of putting them at the end of my dining room table. Should I keep them black? And if not what should I paint them? This is part of my master plan to give all my burgandy chairs to my Mom who loves them. I thought I could replace the other ones with something young and fresh (maybe from Ikea).


I was thinking that maybe this fabric would be cool for curtains in here?

My amazing big sister who is pregnant no less, delivered this amoire to me the day before yesterday. And the thing is solid wood and heavy! My husband was out of town this week and she took it upon herself to get it for me. Thanks Sissy!

Another shoutout to her she made me the pillows I wanted to make from that Premier fabric. The light blue chevron one. I love how our couch looks right now with all the blue! Thanks sweetie!


Luvs!

Glad you are getting back into the swing of things and healing yourself. I love those pillows you got for the sofa. The fabric for the curtains is beautiful, so if you go with that I think you should paint the chairs black. Be sure to check out craigslist for chairs. Sometimes I find Ikea furniture is a bit small for an american sized home, but you never know how something will look!

Fran said...

Hi Leah, you are seriously a source of inspiration!! Adoption is a beautiful thing and is something we're considering too! It's good to hear you're jumping back into the swing of things - I love the peacock chairs and the fabric you're considering for the curtains!! I think the juxtaposition of the peacock chairs w/something from ikea would be so cool!!! You go girl!

Sharstin said...

I'll be praying that you heal fast...I know it has to be so hard. I looove those chair at your dining table-you should definitely keep them!

jemina said...

Great to hear you getting back to yourself again - such a fighter, I admire that. Big hugs! Have a lovely weekend and be sure to get some YOU time! xo

Lulu said...

Wow, your mom CAN find anything at GW, she has skills!!

We have 1 baby, he's 9 months, I had a very hard delivery which resulted in not being able to get pregnant again, so we're going to adopt in the future so Baby~Lu has a sibling too. Adoption holds a special place in my heart. God will bring your children to you! xoxo

christine said...

hugs, hope you're feeling better soon :)

Carpe Diem said...

I'm glad to hear you are feeling better...and you have a great outlook which is what really counts. The peacock chairs will look great with anything that is a complete contrast...so, something from Ikea is a great idea. The accent colors in the fabric will look great in your dining room. I can't wait to see what you end up with.

Leah, it's so nice to hear you're recovering! Although it may take time, I'm sure you'll make it and all will be just perfect! Hope your weekend will be lovely!

Carly said...

I love the chairs with the dining room table, and I love that fabric for the curtains. I think both chairs painted black and those curtains would be just gorgeous!

I can't find a good picture of it online, but if I remember correctly, Tori Spelling did curtains in a similar style in her home. I saw it on her family's television show.

Great ideas! And best wishes on your recovery.

Kiri said...

You are a very strong woman Leah! I love that you have complete faith in the Lord, it's a huge inspiration! I'm glad you are feeling better and it looks like you have lots of awesome projects to keep you busy :) Can't wait to see how everything turns out. And props to your sister for those cute pillows! Have a great weekend dear!

Kiki said...

XOXO

P.S. I love this... said...

Wishing you a speedy, full recovery. Your dining room looks darling. =)

Krystal said...

leah - your projects look so fun. i can't tell if i like the black wicker in the dining room - i wonder if it would be a lot of black with the new curtains? i have no clue! maybe get the other chairs first and see what you think then :)

Chantale said...

Leah, you are such a wonderful person and more importantly Maman. I always get such happy inspiration from you because you are able to admit that some days you're down. But you always manage to see the brighter side and pick yourself up and keep going. You're such an inspiration! Hope you take some time to recoup and recover. It's okay to pamper yourself! You seem to give alot to others.. Lots of hugs to you, get well soon! You are so blessed to have such an amazing family!

Stephanie said...

It's good that you have a positive out look on things, and that you recognize that feeling like yourself or not, life goes on and you're moving right along with it! Your home is so beautiful, and your family just as beautiful for all their thinking of you and great finds! Head up, you'll be better than fine!

Leah,

Hang in there girlfriend. Thanks for sharing your struggle and being brave with your faith...now take another pill and let's discuss these wicker chairs! I say keep them black. Looks great with what you've got in there and you can mix it up with the other chairs you select.

RE: the pillows on your sofa - your sister made those?? The woman has SKILLS! And delivering that big ol' fabulous armoire while pregnant? - trooper!!

Have a great weekend and take care,
Carrie

Flavia @ Estilo Home said...

There's nothing like a good project to brighten someone's mood. I hope your recovery goes well and I really appreciate you for entering my giveaway and becoming a follower! Have a happy weekend!

Jessica said...

will be praying for you and your family. The Lord has such a perfect plan - keep leaning on him.

Angie said...

I'm so sorry, that has to be a horrible thing to have to go through. On a lighter note- I love the idea of that fabric for curtains and I think the chairs would look fantastic black. Athough I could see you painting them a shocking unpredictable color too! ;)

Jesse said...

Praying for your speedy recovery girl!

I am loving your new chair! And think I am diggin it black! Can't wait to see what you do. Take care of yourself. =)

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

Glad you're healing, but so sorry you're going through this. On a lighter note I really love your pillows--they look so great with your couch!

I hope you have a truly wonderful weekend with your family xo

The Zhush said...

I love those blue pillows...they are all so lovely! I hope you are feeling better...several years ago I went thru what you are going through now...actually, I went thru it several times, but I am happy to say that we have three lovely children now. :) I love your attitude, hope you are able to get some rest and some good squeezes from your precious daughter.

Maddy said...

Glad you're back and sorry to hear you've had a tough couple of days. No matter where the road ahead leads you, it sounds like you have a wonderful support system and family/friends/readers who love you and are cheering you on every step of the way!

Lauren said...

You are such a bright and cheery spot on the world wide web and in the world. I love your positive outlook!

Rene said...

Leah, somehow I missed this post. I admire you for your positive attitude and your are wise to trust that there is a plan. I wish the best for you and your husband.

XO
Rene

Oh Leah, my heart hurts for the sad road you have been walking. Trust is the key, though. Trust me, the pain does fade and a new, deeper walk with Him takes it's place.

It feels silly to jump to the topic of the chairs from that, but since you asked... ! I think a deep peacock color would be so totally smashing and "apropo" for those peacock chairs!

Love you hon.
