a few more house pics!

July 14th, 2012 · 6 Comments

With all the craziness of the last few weeks, I realized that I never posted any pictures of our final (for now) living room!  We’re not done yet — not even close, really — but it’s nice to have the downstairs in halfway decent shape.  Not bad for a month after we moved in!

The above picture is our living room and dining room — everything is open so all the rooms basically blend into each other, which I love.  The picture below is from Chad’s study — I thought this was a perfect rug for a lawyer’s office (even if he mostly just plays video games in it). 

Our bedroom is still a disaster, but I’ll hopefully have more pictures for you guys soon!

La-Z-Boy Style and a $1500 giveaway!

July 3rd, 2012 · 187 Comments

When La-Z-Boy approached me about picking out an item for our new house (!), I’ll admit, I first thought about recliners.  My in laws have a media room (something I hadn’t even heard of until I started visiting Texas regularly!) and those recliners are basically the most comfortable thing on earth.  For a girl who loves her TV, it seemed like a great idea.

But La-Z-Boy has so much more!  Their website is full of amazing, customizable, comfortable furniture that are stylish but still completely classic.  I ended up falling completely in love with a sectional sofa — and then I had an almost impossible time sorting through the nearly eight hundred different fabric and leather options to choose from!  But with that huge a range, I knew I’d find the design that was perfect for me!

So I wanted to share a few pictures with you guys before you see the real thing in our new house!  The sectional I picked out, above, is the Sinclair Sectional in Pearl fabric — a perfect compliment to our mostly black-and-white living room that isn’t so delicate that I’ll be scared to actually sit in it.  La-Z-Boy’s motto is “Live Life Comfortably” and I absolutely agree.  That’s exactly what your home should be.

And the best part — La-Z-Boy has SO generously offered a $1,500 La-Z-Boy Gift Certificate for one of you! To enter, just visit their website and then leave a comment below telling me your favorite piece! (Good luck choosing just one — you might want to start with Brooke Shields’s picks!) Just to get you started, I’ve picked a few of my other favorites below.

Good luck!

UPDATE: The winner is Comment 65, M.J. Moore!  I’ll be emailing today for your information.

broke into the old apartment

June 18th, 2012 · 10 Comments

You guys, I am so exhausted I can barely keep my eyes open.  Moving all our worldly possessions and trying to unpack them in one weekend is no joke of an endeavor — I’m happy that after about 72 hours, we have it mostly under control, but this has been a huge amount of work for me, Chad, our in-laws, and basically anyone involved in buying this house (which, OMG, I love)!

So I thought I’d give you guys a few preview pics, with the caveat that nothing is organized or done — it’s barely even out of boxes! 

But even un-organized, the shoe closet is still pretty sick, no?!
