I married a 12 year old!


Do people really think about gifts they give? Do they think about how this gift would be a gift that would KEEP ON GIVING....

My precious was given this beautiful pillow case by his Mother. His mother that is very into decorating and house could be seen in Southern Living.

He sleeps on it every night now. I had Holly Hobby and Ragedy Ann and pink and green plaid (yes I did) but you dont see me sleeping on them. I knew she had it out for me but this has gone a bit too far. What am I going to do about this little issue you may wonder....Smile! It's great to have a heart like a child. I want to be more like him and HIM !!!

I must confess... I bought this rug for his office. He liked it so much and it matched his pillow so its staying here for a while. The heart of this small story. Your home is YOURS... it doesnt have to be showroom ready. It just has to make you smile~

  4. Being happy should take precendence over many things...give him this bit of child like play.

    When you entertain the president, queen or governor...the pillow and rug can be stored away - LOL

    Have a wonderful week.

  5. That's funny and you are very sweet to go along with "his" decorating theme. I think we sometimes get so wrapped up in how everything looks and our need for the perfectly decorated, that we forget that other people need to LIVE in the home and enjoy it.

    I'm glad ya'll have found a happy medium. Have a great day! Susan

  7. Hahaha...well the red/black does kind of go with your bedspread....not! You are definitely a good sport to go along with HIS decorating....at least for awhile....

    I can't believe Maddy got a kitten. Do you have any kitten stories???? I hope she is not as wild as my Midnight. Do post about her please.

  11. I totally agree...but I think I would have to add those GA Bulldawgs instead...lol...you know I have that in me to but at least it hasn't hit my bed yet...I did do a bedroom that way though...I love my bulldawg room.

  15. Now if it were orange and blue and had War Eagle on it, I might could allow it. :)

  16. How funny. I like the way you ended your post. I have to agree, and remind myself now and then about making a home be a home not a showroom for myself!

  19. Ha Ha! Yes, I know about the mind of a 12 year old...but my decor is being transformed (well, at least is trying to be transformed) into camo. Not!

  20. Hilarious. You are probably a touch nicer than me - ha! DH gets all the decorative license he wants in the MAN CAVE! And you can totally tell. Every now and again he will ask me for help. At least he has great taste in teams - Go Hogs!!!

    p.s. Please stop by and see my latest gift from my MIL...

  21. I totally understand when it comes to a husband who is a HUGE Razorback fan. But, I make my husband keep all of his Razorback stuff in his office. I have friends who have the complete Razorback bedding set, so it could be worse!

  22. Woo Pig Sooie! Go Hogs ;)

  25. so proud of you for putting your love for your hubby above your love for beauty. the prettiest bedroom is nothing without love of the two who share it.

  26. This made me laugh! If you remember, my husband had a framed baseball bat on my living room mantle for weeks. I can totally relate to your "pain". So he sleeps on a really ugly pillow...at least the rest of the room is gorgeous! :)

  27. You are a sweet and indulgent wife.

    And I echo Lisa from earlier...love the plates above the bed...they make up for the pillow and rug ;-)

  28. Great point. You look at so many of these perfectly decorated show rooms and wonder does anyone have a real home. I'm glad to see you do!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Your room looks gorgeous even with the red pillow - give him a couple of weeks (like a 12 y/o) and then you can move it and he'll never know. You can always tell him it's in the wash:)
