Reveal Yourself

I'll admit...I'm a blog stalker. I have a daily routine of blogs that I read and the authors don't know me, I don't know them and probably never will. It's scary in a way that so many "strangers" are reading my blog, but I strongly feel you set yourself up for that possibility when you begin a blog. Yes, I've considered going private, but I don't think there is any reason for me to do that right now.

All that said...

I want to know who you are! If you read my blog, leave me a comment. Even if I know you go ahead and leave a comment. I'm interested to see actually how many people check in and read what's going on in my life.

Besides...I love when people leave comments!!

Happy "stalking!" :) Pin It

Decorating Help!

Tonight at Target I found the cutest rug on clearance! Of course I had no idea if it would work or not, but could not let the deal pass me by. I figured it can always be returned it needed.

Now that I've got the rug home I need to decide whether to keep it or take it back. I thought I'd ask my fellow bloggers what you think. Now, I live in a townhouse so we don't have the biggest space, so if you think I should take it back let me know!

Here are the current options:

right when you walk in...

in front of the sliding glass door in the kitchen...

in the middle of the kitchen...

in the laundry room...

under the coffee table in the would be a much smaller rug than the one I have now and there would be much more hardwoods showing...

Need to hear your thoughts!!! Remember, it might also look best on the shelf back at Target!! :)

Life Is Beautiful

How excited I was to see my sweet Margaret Kay today and meet the famous Miss Catherine! Since we were in Richmond for Mike and Kim's wedding, there was no way I was going to be that close and not try to see them. Luckily, everything worked out and we stopped by Katie's on our way home.

Catherine is perfect in every way and Katie is as amazing as ever. My heart was happy to see them and witness such a beautiful miracle. I hope our next meeting is sooner rather than later and I pray God continues to watch over Katie, Donnie, and Catherine.

I love you all so very much!!

**For an accurate update on Catherine's health and continued progress, check out Katie's blog. She is much better with the medical terms than I am!!
