Well then. We indulged some of our very dominant homebody tendencies these past few days and it was awesome. After date night on Saturday at A16 we cozied up in the house for the rest of the weekend. We cooked three amazing meals together, although I will admit that last night was solely Justin's masterpiece (shrimp with tomatillo sauce and rice, fresh-shucked oysters with lime mignonette, brussels sprouts, and lemon buttermilk pie that was out of this world). We drank wine and watched movies. We did laundry and gave the dog a bath. We sat around the fire and sang Christmas carols. Oh, wait, no we didn't. But the rest is true and it sure was nice. I wish that I could say I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and ready to jump into the work week. Not the case, my friends. Not the case. Two weeks until Christmas Day and I honestly just want to hang out and be in a festive mood, no work included. Not going to happen unfortunately. Remember how I was singing of the praises of working with a purchasing agent for the hotel? Yeah. So, that's not happening anymore. I've been up to my ears in client "relations" this past week and I am more than mildly frustrated. Lots of back and forth and changing of plans and disappearing of deadlines (I mean, where the hell did those deadlines go? Nowhere to be found.). I'm rolling with it but it is not fun. Just in case you guys wanted to know. You probably don't.
So let's look at some pretty rug scenarios instead. I KNOW you guys want to know about this. Prompted by my recent Jayson Home shopping spree where this gorgeous little number got innocently placed into my online shopping cart, and then not-so-innocently bought.
It's either going in my kitchen or layered over the rug in my entryway. I've also got another jute rug coming for the living room this week. Rugs are on the mind, people. Here are some of my favorites.
