here is another round of crappy cell phone pictures as of late.

1. we got a new TV with some costco gift cards we got from our work for christmas. they are the best! it is a pretty sweet tv. before we had like a 12 inch screen tv. seriously. it was smaller than my computer screen and my sister always made fun of it. this TV can hook up to the internet just by pushing a button. you can scroll twitter, facebook, yahoo, and all this other stuff while watching tv. i didn't even know all this was possible. it wasn't even that much either. my favorite app is netflix. i know we are late on the bandwagon but we didn't want to get it because we didn't want to have to get a wii or hook up the computer to it just to use it. we have been obsessed with documentaries on it. we have watched Babies, Maxed Out, and King of Kong (documentary about the world championship of donkey kong. awesome.) so far. all awesome. and i am finally catching up on Grey's Anatomy since i had to break up with most of my TV shows when sean and i got engaged. needless to say, i am a happy camper with the TV. also, netflix gives you your first month free so i thought that was neat. also, one more reason why this TV is awesome? it may or may not survive a face forward fall off of the foot of the bed. don't ask. but it still works.

2. i've been kind of into creating fake floral arrangements lately. i think it's because we got new, really nice desks at work. and now that i have shelves and stuff that i can decorate.. i have been branching out and putting little floral arrangements all over my house. the downside is sean won't let me put up any shelves..so i just have all these floral arrangements sitting on the counter. anyway, i made this one for my nightstand. i love it.

3 & 4. my new mirror! i picked it up at the antique store on saturday. i think it is pretty sweet! $20 bucks and a good cleaning later and now we finally have *something* in our bare entry way. now we just need a cool hutch or table or something.

5 & 6. how could you not love that sweet little face? i love this dog more than all the  candy in the world. even if he did just finish completely devouring his 3rd bed. i guess it wore him out so he decided to take a nap by the christmas tree. adorable.

7. our house with christmas decor. sean never turns the christmas lights on when he is home alone. DRIVES ME NUTS. i leave them on all day when i  am home. i don't care if it is light out. i always have a christmas movie or christmas music on too. sean thinks i am a little OCD about christmas. but i don't care. i love it. there are less than 2 weeks left til christmas and dag nabbit i am going to enjoy it.

8. my two favorite things. just chillin on the couch watching the jazz game. i love them.

Oh my gosh! Spencer is the SAME way!! He NEVER turns on the christmas lights! Good thing us ladies are around to keep the spirit alive! :) Your bedroom is sooo cute! Our bedroom is boring with a capital B! I need to decorate for sure!

I am majorly jealous of your TV! We want to upgrade the TV in our living room and we wanted to move our living room TV to our bedroom but it is HUGE so not sure how that will work. Your little TV looks perfect in there!

And watch out, Netflix is majorly addictive.

I totally love your flower arrangement!! Super cute. Also, I love Netflix too!!! I thought I was the only nerdy one watching all the Nat Geo documentaries. :)

my name is lauren. said...

yay for tv! we have one in our bedroom, but we literally NEVER watch it. it's kind of ridiculous, because it's pretty giant. i think 37". our living room tv is 42". can you tell we like tv? ha!

we also love netflix. i made craig watch babies w/ me and i thought it was so cute! he fell asleep though. another good documentary is "jesus camp". it's about these crazy evangelicals. interesting to say the least. currently i want to watch "the science of dogs"...you should add it to your instant queue. my co-worker said it was really interesting and i love learning about dogs.

speaking of which....mine has developed a terrible habit of tearing apart the garbage! not cool marley. it's so weird that she started doing it so late in life. why not when she was a puppy? either way.... super annoying.

i love your new mirror - i have about a bajillion mirrors. they are my favorite :).

i also love all your crappy cell phone pics. welcome to my life :).

love you and miss you chlo!!

xo!!!!!

Sweet list Chloe. I think I need to explore this Netflix idea in Oz. That dog is stupidly adorable and the mirror looks awesome!

I like your floral arrangement, it's really nice. Too bad you don't have any shelves. Maybe you can get those mini shelves, where you just put like one or two shelves on the wall, that might look nice in an entryway? I like the mirror! It looks like something I saw at urban, but it was a jewelry holder.

Haha! Don't feel bad, I do the same thing with the lights and music!!

Michele said...

It all looks great! I am with you on the Christmas lights and music. I love leaving them on all day! See ya Saturday, Bo is excited for his play date with Mosey.

Chloe I love your mirror!! It's so so cute, good job finding it. And how awesome you got a new tv. We really want a new tv one day.... ours is kinda ghetto too. A big square that has the dvd and vhs players built into it. Ha. We need a bigger living room first though! Anyway, had to laugh about your tv surving that fall :)

Hope you guys are doing good. Happy holidays!!!

you are so kind. i loved your text. so sweet and thoughtful. i love how "ocd" you are about christmas. makes me wanna go turn on music or a movie. my favorite christmas movie is "the family stone". it is the best. that mirror is so cute! and i love your little arrangement. we haven't hung anything up yet but i'm excited too. congrats on a new tv... that is so exciting! we went our first year with no tv so i kinda know what it's like to get a brand new one (?! not really the same thing but i still feel like i can relate). anyway i'm glad you got hooked up at work with more office space and then those gift cards! those perks are the best. miss you tons. i'll for sure let you know when we'll be in utah next. love ya tons!!!
