Still obsessing

I was thinking of selling our big wooden bookshelf and buying the huge Expedit bookshelf from Ikea to replace it. And then I had the idea to get these two smaller ones instead to go on either side of our entertainment center. They would hold our books and Evies toys (cause I totally ruined her toy cuboard by leaving it out in the cold).

So they would go on either side of this dresser.

I would probably move the polaroid heart above the fireplace.
And the bookshelf would be gone here for me to be able to move the piano to the wall the bookshelf is on now.

Can you tell I have been obsessing? lol

What it needs

Thank you so so much for all your amazing advice for yesterday's post! I still need to comb through everything you all wrote but we are pretty much on the same page. The room is definitely heavy on one side but I knew that it was missing things too.

So this is what I think it needs...

First off some fresh flowers! Spring anyone?

Second some sort of rug for under the sheepskin.

A great coffee table.

Gorgeous books for atop the piano.






And the last thing I think it needs is a comfy chair!
So what do you think of my plan? It is definitley going to be a work in progress but I am excited for the challenge!

On a personal note, I will one day look back and crack up about this...
You all know how I have been dealing with Morning sickness and all that, well what I didn't say was that my sweet Evelette has had a bug all this week. It all started at my sister-in-law's birthday party that was so fun and western themed. There I was in my cowboy boots feeding Evie coleslaw and baked beans when she started acting funny and then started puking several times. I tried to catch most of it with her plate to keep it from spewing all over the carpet, but a lot of it went all over my boots and pants. Not to mention no one knew I was pregnant at the time so I was trying not to start puking my guts too. We left right away and we baged up most of the clothes we both had on and put them in the trunk. It still makes me quesy thinking about it.
We thought she was all over this until yesterday she started acting funny again right before we were heading to another Birthday party. I was on my knees just kinda rocking her cause she was fussy then I felt her body start to do the bubbling up thing and then it came. Three or four times and it went all over me. Mostly on purpose cause I HAD to save the carpet. After that we made a sprint for the shower. Let's just say I didn't keep much food in my stomach yesterday!
I hope these funny stories will make you laugh. I know I will get a good laugh looking back at this. But not right now!

A change

Okay quick post before I get too nauseous; ) I wanted to show a little change that I have made to the front room and to also ask advice (one of my favorite things about blogging! Hello!)

As you can see the only change I have made is moving the green couch in front of the bookshelf. I thought it would be a fun change because this room seems so hard to arrange.

So my question is... What is wrong with this room and what is missing? It may just be the Morning sickness speaking but it is bugging me!

Hope you have some great input for this crazy hormonal lady!

I have very exciting news! I am 7 weeks pregnant!
We had our ultra sound this morning and saw and heard the heartbeat. After all the struggles with miscarriages, it was such a miracle to get to see that.
If you have wondered why have been MIA it's because I am so nauseous! Just looking at my desk makes me sick but I am hoping to feel better soon (Lord willing). It is nice to know that I am sick for a reason though and it will be well worth it!


Due Date September 9th!

And speaking of pretty shoes...
Here are some new drool worthy Jimmy Choo shoes. They are true works of art, love, love, love!




Monday at My Home

Monday, Monday you come so soon! I feel like I go through crazy inspired spells, and then I go through dry spells either because I am non inspired or just tired. I think this last week I have just been plain tired. It also probably has something to do with me, waiting with baited breath waiting for my hubby to give me an okay on the kitchen. I think we have decided on hiring someone to paint, but we are just waiting for the funding ; ).
So for this Monday I am showing you a few goodies I have recently purchased.
I found adorable Cynthia Rowley candles and a Mongolian sheepskin pillow at Home Goods. I also found cute countertop containers at Ross. I am thinking they will look really cute against on all white backsplash! Patience is a virtue right?!

I have to admit all modern spaces kinda depress me. Which is weird right? Anywho that is not to say I don't admire certain pieces in these spaces. I like to mix and match eras to add interest.
Fab Ceramiche definitely has modern down but I really like how they use color and personal touches to liven up the sterile effect that modern pieces can create. Aren't there some fabulous ideas here?!!!
Happy weekend my Luvs!

Ryan Korban

If I had all kinds of money to blow I think I would have an array of designers design different rooms in my house. And one of the rooms must be done by Ryan Korban, it would be my grown up glamour room. Aren't his rooms delish?!!


Gorgeous rooms, gorgeous shoes, a girl can dream!





Hope your having a great Thursday my Luvs!

I'm Back!!!

Hello my Luvs! I hope you are having a lovely week.
We flew in to home sweet Oregon last night around 11 and got home around 12:30. So I was thinking of going straight to bed but when I saw the box with the chairs in them I was like a kid on Christmas morning!
I am so in love with them. The modern lines they add to my dining room is exactly what it needed.
Time for another dinner party! What time can you be here?!!!

BTW sorry for the barrage of pics. lol

Glam Jennifer

One of the magazines I picked up before we left for Hawaii was Veranda and I am so glad I did. I was pouring over the pages for the last few minutes before we landed in Hawaii. They featured Jennifer Lopez's home in California. The home is very light and pretty, and as always with J. lo every room has a touch of glamour! My fav of her home? Her breathtaking light blue kitchen and pink formal gown in the bedroom! So gorgeous! Which room is your favorite?
