I cannot believe how many of you have experienced the terror of a missing pet before. It really is a gut-wrenching feeling and I’m so thankful that so many of the missing pet stories you guys shared turned out positive. It’s amazing the impact a beloved animal can have on our lives, huh?
My day today has been spent working away on my laptop with Sadie right by my side on the floor. The only furniture in our house right now is our kitchen table, but I was getting sick of sitting up at the table, so it’s been a work-on-the-floor kind of day.
I can’t wait until we get my home office set up! A trip to IKEA to buy the office furniture I fell in love with last week is in order.
After working through the morning, I took Sadie on a quick walk around the neighborhood (yes, I’m all over her today) before making myself a quick lunch.
Lunch today included tuna salad on a hot dog bun served with a side of tomatoes and hummus for dipping.
As I was prepping my lunch, one of my decorating experiments from yesterday stared down at me.
I placed some colorful teacups on top of the kitchen cabinets. I thought they added a little color to the kitchen, but couldn’t decide if they looked too cheap.
When Ryan came home from work yesterday I asked him what he thought of the teacups. After complimenting all of my other kitchen decorating and unpacking, he let it spill.
“The cups remind me of the college apartments that had liquor bottles on display above cabinets.”
I burst out laughing.
We then debated filling some empty vodka bottles with highlighters, shaking them up and turning on a black light in our kitchen to really relive the college days.
(Please rest assured that I never used my alcohol bottles as apartment décor in college.)
The cups are currently still in place until we can find something to replace them or we decide they actually look okay.
What do you think? Be honest! I’m not in love with them at all, so I promise you won’t hurt my feelings.
