Donate a Bed

I was recently browsing the website of our local SPCA shelter and found this ad.  It nearly broke my heart and made me so happy all at the same time.  It's horrible to see these animals sleeping on a cold, hard floor, but it's comforting to know that we can help! 

Many people can't adopt an animal from a shelter because they don't have the time to care for it, they already have too many animals of their own, they don't have the money, etc.  But even if you can't adopt you can still help.  Buy a bed!  Go here to make your purchase and help an animal be more comfortable in his/her stressful stay at a shelter.  For as little as $50 you can make a big difference!  You can also make a gift dedication with your donation.  Sounds like a great Christmas gift if you ask me.  Especially since so many of the things we buy for others are just fillers.  Why not give something that truly is a gift? :)    

And in honor of shelter dogs, the best kid of dogs there are if you ask me, here is a picture of our own shelter baby, Remington.  He's sporting his new fleece-lined hoodie in preparation for the Oklahoma winters coming our way.

And here's another one of him looking for his squirrel friend.  He would sit and stare for hours if I let him.

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Our Living Room Mood Board

Our living room is slowly but surely coming together.  The biggest To Do's are ordering a new media console, painting the room (which is unfortunately open to the dining room, kitchen, office and breakfast area which means lots of painting to be done!), order a few lamps and a console for the long wall behind the couch. I realize I haven't shared any pictures of our "new" house (we moved in at the end of last October) with you guys.  So here's a glimpse of the living room before we moved in. This is what you see when you walk in the front door.  The dining room is on the left, the living room is straight ahead and the office on the right. A closer look at the living room.  Florida loves their plant ledges...I do not.  You win some.  You lose some.  I also want to replace the tile around the fireplace.   A view from the back of the living room looking toward the front corner of the house. The room behind the half green wall is the office sans the Fr

Up Up And Away- Take Two (And Three)

We took our second family flight this past June.  We took the earliest flight out so we had to wake up at 4:00am to get everything ready.  I had all of the girls' stuff ready and laid out so we only woke them five minutes before we left at 5:00 am.  Rollins is our late sleeper so I thought she would for sure fall back asleep in the car on the way to the airport.  Nope.  Auden, who is typically my early riser (with the sunrise), fell asleep instead.  I guess Rollins knew something was up and was too excited to miss anything.  She didn't fall asleep until we were 10 minutes from our friends' house in Dallas.  Meanwhile, Auden fell asleep again on the plane.  Proof that you can never predict what toddlers will do during travel days.   Auden loved getting to use her new suitcase and travel backpack (that daddy so graciously attached to his luggage for her).  We got quite a few comments from those passing by :)  The bags worked well, held
