Patio on a budget

27 04 2011

Once all of this (insane) weather goes away, I fully plan to take advantage of the cute little deck in our backyard. Now for some affordable patio furniture that doesn’t look like it belongs at a old-folks home…

This is a steal – dont think I could find anything else like it for the price ($299 from Home Depot, with free shipping!)

Or maybe this one? Only $239!


I’m in love with a chair…

20 04 2011

So I found my perfect accent chair for the living room! Now who wants to lend me $900?? 🙂 I should be banned from the crate&barrel website….

Entry Envy

So our new place has a little entryway (complete with a stained glass window…random, i know). So I want us to have some sort of storage, or a bench or something to dress up the entry. Thoughts?

Reading Room

So, those of you that know me, know that I am one big nerdy bookworm 🙂 In some future home – with lots of space – I hope to have a library/reading room a la the photos below:

Again with the yellow!

I die….the fireplace, the floor to (impossibly high) ceiling books….

Would love it if my books were all these pretty colors!

Mellow Yellow

19 04 2011

I am loving yellow right now. I really want a yellow accent chair for our living room. My couches have multicolored throw pillows with yellow in them, and I think a comfy yellow chair would be perfect in the corner by our fireplace!

Maybe one of these chairs – in yellow, or a yellow print? 

Official Closing Date Set!

19 04 2011

T minus 28 days! We got the call today, and our closing date has officially been set for May 17th. This is just 2 days before we jet off to New Orleans to celebrate Sam’s parents anniversary and his mom’s birthday, but at least it is before mine and Sam’s self imposed exile to the library (on May 23rd) to study for our board exams.

Not only did we find out our closing date, but we found out that the seller is fixing everything that we requested after the inspection! That is definitely a relief.

So glad to have less than a month until we move into our new house. AND to top it all off, our good friends Rusty and Kelli just joined the homeowners club too! And their first home is just 4.5 miles from us. It will definitely be fun to move-in and decorate our houses together.

Living Room Lust

Obviously someone is procrastinating packing up her life by lusting after some beautiful living rooms….again, not in the budget – but I love window shopping for inspiration!
