    Jeez! Can I just say - I loved my 3 day weekend! It's the first time in months that I have not done anything work related for one entire day, much less 3. I left my laptop in the trunk of my car until yesterday afternoon.

    Today is filled with people feeling a lot like me, and people that aren't here because they were smart & made a 3 day weekend into a 5 dayer. So pretty much I am relaxed and completely disenchanted with the prospect of work right now.

    So, wanna see what I'm thinking about instead? I purchased this rug on overstock.com yesterday:

    I'm going to put it in our living room to add a layer of texture.

    Rug goes under the coffee table/couch. I purchased some beautiful large tropical plants for the house yesterday, so that will add some interest as well.

    So now I am searching for lighting. I'm thinking of a chandelier or pendant to replace the lame ceiling light over the coffee table. I've found some fun stuff at Click the image to open in full size.

    Anyway...am I the only one being so rebellious today??

        Gosh- I wish I could be lazy. Over the weekend, I ended up getting assigned to fill in for another chick while doing my own job until we find a replacement. Woohoo- I love coming in on a Monday to that news!

        As for the LR- cute rug. I like the wall colors and the mantel. It will look fabulous!

          That is bunk Rachel! Do they pay you her salary on top of yours? That would make sense, right?

            haha I would love it if they did but sadly no. I'm just "filling in" until they get someone hired.

                Excellent! I like your style Maura. I did not take a 2 hour lunch, only because I plan to leave here around 4:00 to go to my yoga class...so short lunch = no guilt for Christa!

                Legal day! Holy crap! That is a great reason to slack at work

                Ugh, you are my hero. I am definitely taking more days next year. And thanks...I'm excited by the rug. The paint color looks a little weird in the pic...but I am confident the rug is going to marry nicely. I still don't have pictures on the walls...I reminded myself that I do not have any business trying to hang things on my own (you have to find a stud? use a level? what?) I will def post pics as it comes along.

                So whatcha doing?? Are you having a icey beverage? with alcohol in it??

                  I'm actually getting ready (between typing) to go to see Stevie Wonder at the Hollywood Bowl - woohoo! I'm just drinking iced tea right now, saving the alcohol for later so I don't poop out early :P
