New Decorations

We hung up the new wall decorations this weekend and they look fabulous.  Loving the mirror and colorful painting.  Going to really love the picture frames, when I get our family pictures in them.  Which still have to be taken.  But I figured putting up the frames with the generic pictures in them would force me to coordinate a family picture time sooner.  I guess we will see.

New Clock

I also purchased a few small items to tie in some colors.  The blue and orange candles on the mantle to help bring in the colors from Catrina.   Also found the clock above my desk this weekend.  Really really like the clock.

The decor is finally coming together.  Only took almost six years?!?  🙂

Yay for ME!

New Fab Furniture

If you know me, you know that interior decorating is NOT my thing. It’s not that I just don’t care. I love a coordinated looking space. I just have the worst time visualizing what things will look like when I actually get them home. My brain goes over and over: what if it’s the wrong color, what if it’s the wrong size or what if I am just retarded and it would look horrible in that room. I am aware that the fate of the free world doesn’t rest on my decision but it is still daunting to me.

So I am marveled. Basically my whole living room has had a face lift from two shopping trips.  And no tears or cussing happened at either trip.

My handsome husband and I found new living room furniture last weekend that we both really liked and at a very reasonable price .  It was delivered today and it looks fabulous in our living room.  However, it didn’t look fabulous with the wall art we already had in there.  Thankfully we weren’t married to that art, and those pieces will work just fine in our other living room.  But that did leave me needing to find replacement wall decorations.  Ugh, here comes the tension..but luckily I had my daughter, Sabrina, with me.

She and I went out and conquered the home decor store. We found several pieces that will help bring together the room. One piece that we bought even coordinates with the Catrina piece on the mantel. (Once everything is hung and in place, I’ll post some pics.)

Most importantly, my handsome husband liked the wall decor as well!  I would say that today was a great day!

Yay for ME!

Handsome Husband with Lovely Ladies

Handsome Husband and Lovely Ladies

It has been so cold lately that the ladies, Sadie and Maggie, haven’t been out of the house or back yard much.  But this past weekend it was so lovely, me and my handsome husband took them on a stroll around the park.  These ladies love the park.  We are usually able to let them off the leash for a bit to run in the field, but not this day.  We were not the only ones out enjoying the weather.  The park was full!  But the ladies didn’t mind, they were just glad to be out of the house.

Can't catch them both looking.

That tongue though!

Great time at the park was had by all.

Family Taco Time

Galaviz Road Trip

Galaviz Road Trip

You know that a taco joint has to be good, if all three teen agers are willing to wake-up and leave the house by ten am to get some.  This morning we all loaded up in the Hylander and made the forty-five minute trip to Casa Galaviz for some yummy tacos.  No one was disappointed.  Casa Galaviz, as I have posted before, is a favorite of my husband and mine.  And now it is a favorite for the kids.
