No line no wait at home for Valentine’s Day. Reservations required! Since we have implemented the once a week dinner at the dining room table rule, it has been going well. And Valentine’s Day is on Thursday, that will be the day we eat at the table. New this week, different decor.
When we moved in I hung some of our old art from the old house even though I have been really tired of looking at it. This week changes are here! I put up a grouping of botanical prints. Now we have something different to look at and I like it! The group is bigger on the wall than the magnolia print. I enjoyed giving away the magnolia print on Offer Up for free. It was a nice piece of art. My hope is that it will bring the next person joy as it did me for a long period of time.
My husband and I are at a disagreement with the opposite wall. He likes the art that is there from the old house and I am done with it! My plan is to hang a big mirror. He’s exact words were , “we are not mirror people”. What does that mean exactly? My deal with him is that I will get the mirror and if he hates it, I will take it back. I’ve been looking for the right one. Yesterday, I went to Ethan Allen to get a better look at one I saw online and decided it wouldn’t look right. The designer at the store showed me what they could make custom after I showed her pictures of the room. I politely and enthusiastically smiled and left the store saying that I needed to check with my husband. There is no way he would pay that amount of money.
So today I went to pick up a mirror from Pottery Barn. It’s still on the expensive side and I’m not yet completely in love with it. I might go back and get the bronze one. It’s a little too light grey for the space. This is the love/hate part of decorating. Deciding on what you love, once it’s there it’s most likely going to stay for a very long time. I still need to hang it. It’s heavy at 35 pounds.
Now for the meal plan for the week. I already have them scared I’m serving sugar free deserts.
