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!

Oooh I like all these ideas! I coffee table and some pillows will definitely look great in the room!

So funny with you and Evie! This weekend my niece and nephew (to be) were both sick so I rocked one baby while Matt's sister had the other. Now I'm sick. Lol.

Great ideas to jazz it up! I'm sorry to hear about Evie, I hope she feels better. And you too! You're right about looking back and laughing about these things. Sounds like you're already starting to laugh about it. It's so important to keep things like that in perspective and not let them ruin your day!

I love the see through shelf in the coffee table. That would be a great way to store and show off fashion magazines. The flowers are great too. I'm definitely ready for spring.
