So Cute Nightstand and Pulled Muscles

I had an interesting morning. My allergies have been bothering me. I wake up every morning and sneeze. Not just one little sneeze but multiple sneezes in a row. This morning was no different. On the 5th sneeze pain shot through my back and I screamed. My boys looked up from their cereal and asked what happened. I replied saying I think I pulled a muscle in my back. They were perplexed since I was only sneezing. But yes folks, a sneeze brought me to my knees. Who does that happen to? People have been giggling about it all day. It is kind of humorous, but still painful. I really didn't want to clean out my closet today anyway, or go to the gym. I'll just have to take it easy for a few days.

On another note, yesterday I was out and about and stumbled on this cute little nightstand that would be perfect for my new guest room.

It had all the colors I was looking for and matched the main fabric perfectly.

I had to have it until I saw the price.

It was a bit much. I think I'm going to have to make my own. Now the search begins for a second hand piece to paint. I don't just want a plain top either. My creative juices are flowing, so stay tuned.

Spring Break Fun

So we spent spring break in Florida with my husband. It was so nice to spend more than a day in our new city. We got a feel for how life is going to be in just a few short weeks. Yeah!

We took advantage of this week and got Disney annual passes which was our little present for moving to FL. We spent 2 days at the Magic Kingdom and Hollywood studios. The kiddos had a blast. I'm pretty sure my 7 year old is now an adrenaline junkie. He kept wanting to ride ALL of the thrill rides.

Toy Story mania was a favorite ride. I got beat by the 12 year old. He has more video game practice than I do. Ha!

Lunch at Pizza Planet

We got to spend some time at the beach

I think we will be beach bums. I am going to get used to this fast.

I got my rug set up, but something is not right.

It feels lopsided. How do you place a rug with a sectional? Do I need a bigger rug? This one is 8x10? Do I need to orient the rug differently? HELP! I hate the vertical blinds, but it's a rental so I'll have to cover them up with window treatments.
On the way home to Atlanta, I stopped and picked up my new upholstered chairs. I love them!! I got 2 of these.

They will go in the room with the sectional.
I hope you had fun on your spring break. It's back to daily life for me. Gotta get a move on and finish up all the wedding decor this week. I'm going to be busy. Later.
