We got a new rug! We sold our old one...and got this new shag rug. We LOVE it. It is just so cozy and perfect. Dante loves it too.
My newest obsession is getting curtains on those windows. I HATE HATE HATE blinds. And that is the current thing on them. So hopefully soon I can work on that :)
Have you noticed I've been in the whole, "changing my house" mood? Dining wall, rug, curtains...I have a new theory. If I hate something, change it. Of course it can cost money to have this attitude. But that's why I shop at thrift stores and that's why I sold my old rug before I bought a new one. And that's why I am selling all my crap around my house before I start on curtains. But you know what? It's great. Cause now instead of having all this negative energy in my life where I look at a wall and think, "Ugh. I sure hate that wall" or "UGH- I sure hate that rug. Why did we settle?!" now I look at my wall and say, "Oh! I love it!" and I look at my rug and say, "Oh! Doesn't it look so much nicer in here?" and soon I will look at my curtains and say, "Oh! So much better. So cozy." Seriously...it's my new motto. If you hate something, change it. I know it's probably more complex than that. But so far it's working.
Today is a little chilly. I wore some boots and a skirt and I like wearing boots but I don't like feeling a little chilly! Oh well. It's life. I am really looking forward to the holidays. Like actually a LOT. Mostly excited to decorate! That's another motto I'm starting. If I hate a season, find something to be passionate about in it. I hate being cold and I hate winter! So I will be passionate about my holiday decorating!
Life lessons. They are always coming to me :)
