This room is siiiiiiiiic.

WHAT a whirlwind weekend. If I thought the weeks were going by quickly, the weekends are going even faster. (But that's usually true, isn't it?) We packed in as much as we could with some antiquing, a bit of family time, and lots of yard work. Then I wrapped things up with a fun little ladies night. Turns out, Monday morning's not as rough when you have to pass on the adult beverages :)

I scored a few things for the nursery. This table is surprisingly sturdy, and offers great tabletop space. And it was a total steal, so I couldn't pass it up.

Can we just talk about these chubby elephants? Please. Basically begging to be in Baby Reed's room.

After many fruitless eBay attempts, FINALLY nabbed a rug for the powder room...locally, no less.
Tucker approves, despite how mad he looks about it.
Deal was too good to pass up the pair, although only one has a home for now.

A little sneakity peek at last night's soiree. Much more to come later this week!

No, I didn't eat all of that cheese.
Yes, I wanted to.

Happy Monday!

Those rugs are amaze, as are the bookends. I hope we get a sneak peek of Baby Reed's nursery because I need some design inspiration for my little one coming later this year. Its not even 8am and I want to demolish that entire plate of cheese, I want to blame it on being pregnant but pretty sure I would feel that way pregnant or not.

my favorite and my best- MFAMB to you said...

I'm totally behind on your blog but in a nutshell: that room is crazy cool (I would never dream of just using a single colour in a room but kill me in the face if that's not awesome); your soiree looks magic - such pretty serveware and bowls - I need some gold bamboo spoonage; those elephant book ends are fabulous - can not WAIT to see this nursery; and finally Tucker is gorgeous, I just wanna rub his belly!! xxx
