Weekending & Cola's Home

First, I wanted to send my love to those who were affected by Hurricane Mathew over the weekend.  Here in VB, we were pretty much shocked with how badly we got hit.  I think everyone really underestimated how much we would get here and we really didn't do much to prepare at all.  I had a pretty scary drive home after a wedding I was working Saturday night and was feeling really over it after no power with two kids for two days, but I know all of that was nothing in comparison to what other people went through.  My thoughts are with those who lost loved ones or who continue to face challenges from the storm, I'm currently feeling extra thankful for our safety and for these two sweet sisters.


On a much lighter note, with lots of down time at home over the weekend ... I finally got around to taking some pictures of the sweetest pillows that Carla at Cola's Home sent over a couple months back.  My husband and I were very much in the market for a new couch over the summer, and after lots of going back & forth, we finally decided on this one which I love so much!!!  The light grey is such a pretty color while still being neutral and (so far!) it's been pretty durable with two little ladies jumping all over it, all the time. ;)  I chose her pink patterned pillows, I've just been having the biggest love affair with this color combo lately and I am so happy with how it turned out.

The biggest thank you to Cola's Home for sending these over & and also to my husband for not saying anything about the pretty obvious feminine vibes happening in our living room.  Yet. :)


Happy halfway through the week!

  1. I'm glad you guys survived the hurricane (albeit not exactly fun). My best friend lives in VA Beach and she said there was a lot of power outages even up until yesterday!

  4. Glad to hear the hurricane was just an inconvenience and didn't cause any real damage. But being without power does get old, especially with little ones! Cute pillows... I don't think my husband would stay quiet if I put pink pillows out ;)
