Hello family & friends!

So you may have noticed a few updates around here! I decided to spiff up the blog a little bit, make a few changes with the help of Crafty Lil Fox, who I found on Etsy! It's definitely going to take some getting used to on my part, but so far I'm digging the cleanliness of it all. 

Also, in an effort to keep this whole blog thing going, I'm going to *try* to write at least once a week! Not necessarily a long, drawn-out, here's-what's-been-happening-the-past-week post, but rather small updates here and there that we may have forgotten to touch on along the way. 

So without further ado, here's a little update that we made over 2 months ago!!

You may remember our original rug in the living room, when we moved into the house. I picked it out at World Market, and my mom bought it as a house-warming present! I loved it, However, it was a shag carpet, and was white/off-white, and we quickly learned that it was impossible to clean since you couldn't actually vacuum it. It had to be swept... and with 2 cats at the time, and lots of foot-traffic through the space, it ultimately did not survive. So sad. 


I won't go into great detail about what actually happened to the rug, only to say that there was a cat involved, and the rug's departure was rather rushed. In an effort to get something on the floor, we moved the rug from the guest bedroom into the living room as a 'temporary fix'. This was almost 2 years ago. 


The problem with the 'new' rug from the guest bedroom was that it didn't really match the decor, and it still posed the same problem as the original rug, which was the size. We quickly realized that the rug was way too small for the room. Especially with a little one who likes to play in the main living space of our home, we needed something bigger that would fill the room more appropriately. Well, my friends, rugs are expensive!

But rugs on RugsUSA are not too terribly expensive, especially when they are 70% off + free shipping! When I discovered those two little facts, I was all about it! So that's when we ordered our new rug!


Honestly, we couldn't be happier! It's still in the shedding phase... no matter how much I vacuum it, it sheds like crazy, but it feels so crisp and clean, and HUGE! So there you have it, a little update that makes a world of difference! Have a great weekend and happy Spring!
