Random Wednesday!

SO- I have some random Wednesday thoughts for you!

Yesterday- I felt the earth quake.......NO, SERIOUSLY!  The earthquake that happened in Virginia yesterday sent tremors throughout Ohio.  I've never felt anything like it (considering I've always been a midwest girl).  I first thought I was going to pass out- and then the ceiling and doors started shaking....CARAZY!

        I finally purchased some rugs for our kitchen.  I ordered the rug in natural (as seen in the picture) from Ballard Designs.  I had to pay $20 for shipping.  Considering it ships out of Cincinnati (aka-where I live) I was a little annoyed.  But nonetheless, I still bit the bullet and made the purchase because I was simply tired of shopping around for affordable and cute kitchen rugs 


          We FINALLY set a date for our housewarming party.  That means Derek and I can be motivated again to finish this house (as far as painting, decorating, etc. goes)! 


             

            Seriously, how adorable is this family?!?  That is my sister, brother-in-law, nephew, and niece!  Those kids are just precious!  Oh- and I totally feel like my sister and I are looking so much alike these days.....

              I finally ordered this table runner for our dinning room.  I'm so excited to get in the mail!  Question for all of you.....I think I should do white placemats, but my soon-to-be dishes are white....any thoughts?



                We watched The Adjustment Bureau and Source Code over the past couple days and I was a bit disappointed with both....


                Finally, I always forget to thank all of you for your sweet comments and emails!!!  I seriously enjoy hearing from all of you!

                Hope you are having a great week!

                LOVE the table runner!!!! I'd go for a placemat that has a color that will pop or be bold! Glad you're okay after the earthquake...that is crazy!!! I can't even imagine what it feels like!

                Have a great week!

                I can't believe you guys felt it in Ohio! Crazy!!

                LOVE the table runner! With white dishes however, I'd pick a color that really pops for the placemats. Maybe something with yellow? I like the flowers they have paired with it in the picture.

                Love the table runner! And I can't wait to have our own housewarming party. :)

                That's crazy that you felt the quake, so glad nothing bad came of it!

                I really like that rug, it's super cute! And I LOVE the table runner, I think chevron is adorable and modern...as for the place mats, have you thought about bringing in another color because I think that would nicely contrast with the white dishes...I think and navy blue or a yellow like the flowers in the example photo would look perfect, or you could even do something like fun bright green...can't wait to see what you choose and congrats on the housewarming party! :)

                Love that table runner! Have you thought about round placemats? I think a round silver (or other color like yellow) could be fun!

                That earthquake scared me! I'm about 90 miles away from the epicenter and it shook my world!

                i felt the quake too, in NY ... def. crazy.
                love the rugs and the table runner ... if you don't mind white on white, i don't think it will look bad at all.

                i liked Source Code but was a bit disappointed in The Adjustment Bureau too.
