Take a Seat

While I was visiting my parents last week, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had put new furniture in their guest bedroom. They got a new bed that was really nice, new side tables, a lamp, chair and ottoman. My Mom is still working on the room and looking for accessories, but I fell in love with the chair and lamp she picked out! I wanted to come home with the chair! ha ha! But I guess I should leave it there so I can enjoy it when I visit! She also had fresh flowers in the room on each side table! It was so cozy, I just loved it!!

Here are a couple pics of the chair and you will notice the adorable B&W lamp too. I wish I had taken the pics when it was dark out because the sun glaring in the room made the pic not turn out so hot, but you get the idea.


On another subject . . . 2 nights this week I got home from work and hubby had dinner ready for me. It was SO sweet the first night, but then when he did it the second night I asked him . . "Are you feeling okay??" ha ha! I wasn't totally shocked that he did this, because he does sweet things for me a lot and does things to help me around the house ~ but it was still a pleasant surprise. Each night, along with dinner, he had all my candles lit around the house too! He knows how I love my candles!! The second night he had dinner for us, he got sushi and then fixed beef fried rice and shrimp and vegetables. Obviously he didn't make the sushi, but I was still impressed that he put everything on plates and tried to make it look nice for me. That's what was so sweet to me! He could have left everything in a pan and the sushi in what it came in, but he didn't ~ he took the time to place everything on a dish! So sweet!! He definitely got bonus points!!


Our weekend was pretty low key, we both worked all weekend. We watched the tournament games and one night watched it with some friends, and that was fun! I took on a little project and painted an old card table because I want to use it as a desk. I'll post pics of that later this week.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!! Ta ta for now!
