Five on Friday

1.) Back when we bought our couch, God saw through a crystal ball that 2 years later an entire glass of red wine would get spilled on it, so we bought the protection plan that they offered. The protection plan covers for your furniture to be cleaned or replaced depending on the stain. Really all of this to say that we may be in the market for new living room furniture. I am going for functional/comfortable over pretty this time and think a slipcovered sofa seems like the most logical. It is truly amazing what children can do to furniture!

2.) We are obsessed. I used to hate sparkling water but I guess when your only option is water, it's nice to have something break up the monotony. 

3.) Now that the holidays are over and the initial shock of a rehabs price tag is over, we are slowly but surely trying to decorate this little space of ours. First order of business- a runner for the hallway. One downfall of hardwood everywhere is it feels so cold in here. I am hoping some rugs and curtains will warm it up a bit.

4.) Were truer words ever spoken?

5.) Our next major project at the house is the exterior. While I would love for it to be the bathrooms, we feel that a little curb appeal would be appreciated by the neighbors. Along with landscaping, I would like to paint the brick. Im torn between these two color schemes but really leaning towards the second. 

Happy weekend!


  1. stopping by from the linkup! try rugsusa for a rug... i've always gotten great deals through them and the quality of their rugs is amazing!


  2. I'm a sucker for painted brick, so I can't wait to see what color scheme you go with!

  3. I can't wait to see what you do to your house!!! The second painted brick looks so cute :)
