Tales from Craigslist....

Last night we had a couple come over to look at a sofa we are selling. I had just gotten home and went to check on the dogs upstairs and make the couch look presentable with some pretty throw pillows. I screamed. The little monsters had ripped up their pee pad and pooped all over the floor! Of course, that was when the door bell rang and Todd escorted the couple upstairs. Did I also mention that my laundry was on the couch with my underwear and bras? Deeeeelightful.

Side note: Lately, I have found a lot of people on craigslist out of touch with reality. For instance, maybe you don't sell your stained, 15 yr old Lazy Boy recliner for $600. Maybe you shoot a little lower. Or the tv stand from Ikea that you are trying to sell for MORE than the price at Ikea. I swear, people are completely delusional!

Another Real Housewives Discussion...

With the fabulous Emily from Scented Glossy Magaines, here.

I think I'm going to have to start pulling my hair out. In chunks. And then eating the evidence.

Cause I am seriously at the end of my rope with this room. I try to shield you from your ugly. But I think it's time that you saw. This is the first room that you see when you walk in the door. And it is pure ooogly. We bought the desk before we bought the house--hence too big for the room. I was thinking of putting drapes covering the entire wall..but I don't think that will help. I can't get rid of the desk. So what do I do!? I don't want to start eating my own hair!
P.S. Don't get me started on the giant printer with all the cords. And the ugly lamps. And the rug that just doesn't fit my style. And the awful office chair. Or the styling in general. I blame this room on Todd. :)

6 cans of spray paint and it's still not done....

You can still see the gray underneath. And I am the worst spray painter EVER. I am too impatient. So there are runs and bubbles. Oops. I think I might need to start the whole thing over. I'm contemplating doing a different color too. A raspberry. And then putting it in the gym with the wallpaper below....if I could find where they sell it! (Thanks for all the suggestions with that btw.) :)

Read the fine print...

I just bought these Pottery Barn standard pillow shams on ebay yesterday at a great price. I happened to look at the listing again and I realized that they are monogrammed with the letters DTK. Might as well be WTF cause I didn't see it! What am I going to do with pillow that say DTK!? Do you think I can put a needle through the thread and pull it out? Gawd. I feel so stupid!

Do you watch the Real Houswives of Orange County?

Awful, right? Like a car crash, that you just can't look away from. I got a chance to talk to Scented Glossy Magazines about it (the most awesome blog ev-ah, btw) so check it out here!

Gratuitous Puppy Picture of the Day

One of Newton's online puppy friends passed away yesterday during a routine teeth cleaning. I can only begin to imagine how difficult today must be for her family. Hopefully, she is in doggie heaven with lots of bones and good tummy rubs.

Sailing Away....

I won this little boat the other day from Miss Mustard Seed and was so excited when it finally arrived! It will be moved upstairs to the loft as soon as the new couch comes and I get some bookcases...but until then, it resides on the mantle. It is so cute--it makes me want to put on some Enya and sail away.....
