The kids are now both back in school! Izzy started last week and Sam this week.
I think we all got tired of not having a routine during summer. Doesn’t help when it’s too hot to play outside or hit up the pool. They are both so happy to be back and hanging out with their buddies.
So, last week it was just Sam and I and we popped into Homegoods. I’m usually really good about having the strength to leave empty handed. Not this time. This time I spotted a huge round wooden mirror. Exactly what I have been wanting for years for the dining room. I did the casual saunter over as to not attract attention all while screaming with excitement in my head and evil eyeing anyone who might possibly be interested in the mirror. $150. Deal!!! Not a sales person was in sight and I didn’t want to risk walking away to find help only to return and have it be gone. So, I lugged that beast behind me like a dead body while pushing Sam in the cart. Two steps forward, drag. Two steps forward, drag. You do what you have to for a good find.
I got it home and started worrying it wasn’t going to work. My concern was that it was a different wood tone from the table. Then there’s the gray painted chairs, black piano, and dark brown floors. Not that I think everything should match, but I was worried there was too much going on.
How my mind works: Toss (not the best word to use given how heavy it was) it up in the packaging to see if it’s even an option.
i am LOVING the new look in that space! the white drapes will be perfect!!!
oh and i forgot to say your kids are the cutest and bunny vet is a great occupation!
Your babies are BEYOND CUTE. Oh my!!!!! I got to see my little nephew get on the bus for his first day of 2nd grade today, totally made this auntie's day. My own kiddos don't go back until next week and they are going to be less than overjoyed to heard their alarms go off each morning! Loving the round mirror, and the white curtains really do lighten up the space so much. But I love the charcoal too!!! I'm glad I'm not alone in suffering through changes of heart regarding window treatments. I've gone through 3 sets in my living room in 6 years and I'm still having commitment issues 🙂 Happy school year Westerman munchkins!
The kiddos are too cute… hopefully she doesn't catch a bunny anytime soon. 🙂
