Ottoman Dilemma

I’m so mad because we ordered that furniture set and now they cannot get the ottoman to match! The store said they were out and can’t find another one. (NEVERMIND…THEY DID FIND AN OTTOMAN AND IT’S ON ORDER!!!)

We still want an ottoman, so we were thinking of a large rectangle fabric ottoman to go with the sofa and chair to use as a coffee table/ottoman. So, my question to all of you is where do you find one of these and what do you think would look good with that dark leather? I’ve been looking online and in stores and have yet to find anything! WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FURNITURE STORE? ONLINE OR IN STORES….SUGGESTIONS PLEASE!!!!!!

On another note – I am keeping these in my car/bag/desk to remain sanitary and not get the dreaded swine flu! They closed down almost all Fort Worth schools today due to some cases of the swine flu!

New Furniture

Yesterday Terence and I went out to dinner last night at the Cheesecake Factory and after that we went and got NEW FURNITURE!!!! Yeah! There was a floor sample clearance sale and today they are having and EXTRA 30% off of that price and they had exactly one set left in the warehouse so we hopped on it and we got a new sofa, chair, and ottoman. I love it and of course I will take pictures when we move in and get everything set up. We have been so busy lately getting everything ready to move…so as hard as I try I am trying to keep up with reading about all of you lovely blog friends…right now it’s just craziness trying to get ready for this move.
LOVE YOU ALL…Happy HUMP day!

Week 16 "Reflections"


Weekend update

This weekend you all know we finally found an apartment. I think we will be moving around May 10th or 11th. There is a Super Target five minutes away and that just makes it even better! Rebecca, Terence’s youngest sister, also had a wedding shower on Sunday. She got lots of goodies and things to decorate her new home! I made a lot of cupcakes for the shower and I used Sprinkles recipe for cream cheese icing…it was so good!

(Sorry, no pictures of the cupcakes! I forgot!)

Here she is with my mother-in-law opening her presents…I didn’t get too many pictures, but a lot of other people took some so I know she will have plenty. Also, little guy creamed my lens with icing…so that may have something to do with it, and the fact I left my lens cap at home ๐Ÿ˜›

Got a good picture of that! ha..ha… He’s so cute though it doesn’t matter!
I got a star today at work ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a paperweight with your name on it. It’s really nice & it makes me feel like a…..
