Random throughs from a Sick Person.

-I feel awful!  :(  I started getting sick a few days ago and this cold is kicking my butt.  :(

-I have lost 9lbs since the beginning of January.  My husband has lost 10lbs.  We are both back doing weight watchers again.  (Old points, not new because I already have all of the stuff and I know it works.  Just need to keep up with it.)

-I finally got my kids to clean up their junk toys in my living room so I could finally take photos of my new couch.  (I have plans to move around the photos on the walls...because there used to be a corner hutch in the left of the room and paint the coffee table...any color suggestions?)
-As soon as they cleaned up, Lily decided she had to dump out a container of stickers all over the floor.  *sigh*  (Yep, I also have a tuba in my living room...gotta love small homes.)
-I had a customer stop by and pick up her order today and had to have her come in to see my new couch because my old one is by the curb and looks terrible...bowing my head in shame.  I am a bit embarrassed about how bad my old couches look. (The fabric was spent.  Keep in mind they were 12 yrs old...not to mention 4 cats & 2 kids later...it was time to replace them.)  I am LOVING my new sectional! 
- I had intended on taking a before photo of the old couches and how ragged they looked....but I must admit I never got around to it before I painted the woodwork a couple weeks ago.  I do have these photos of my living room I took 2 months after we moved in this house in 2005.  The room hasn't looked that in a LONG time...

-I am feeling a bit sad because I have been neglecting by blog....really need to change out the fall header...oops.

- Really should put out my Valentine's decorations today...but I am really thinking about skipping right over Valentine's and putting up St. Patrick's decorations (I only have like 2 things for St. Pats, not that I have much for Valentine's.).  I did make these pins for my terrarium last week. 

-We took the kids to Toys R Us for their Friends Lego Build event to build a lemonade stand.  Lily embellished her's a bit when we got home.
-Off to go cuddle up on my new couch and watch a movie.

Too funny! I have almost the same exact "before" sofa set. My arms are a little different but the color is the same and they are only 5 years old so still in good shape. Your new sectional is awesome!

That couch looks like such comfy goodness! Your house can't be that small if it fits that whopper in there! Too funny about Lily dumping stickers everywhere. :)

Oh, it's SO not any fun to be sick! I have a bad throat and stuffy nose too ... trying to fight it off before it gets worse. BUT! At least you have your gorgeous, new, comfy couch to crash on! Love it!

Congrats on the weight loss! I started taking hormones about 5 months ago and have put on 25 pounds! UG! I hate it! So I took myself off of them a couple of days ago and am going to try to deal with the hot flashes while I try to take the weight off again. Don't you wish it just didn't take so darn long?!

Great couch. Paint your walls one of the new in colors very vibrant and you will not regret it.

Sorry you are feeling sick. I would either paint that coffee table white or perhaps the color of that rocking chair. Love that color. :)

Hope you are feeling better soon.
