oh and one more thing [a little sprucing up]

Tuesday, November 6, 2012
our trip to ikea, while wandering between the modestly priced furniture, hubby picked up two simple blankets [one white, one grey] from one of their displays. i had been searching for a [not incredibly expensive] replacement blanket for our couch, one that wouldn't scream "summer" as much as the white and red coral print one we had tossed on the back of the couch [it "went" very well with our blue -ahem- walmart pillows], but couldn't find anything i liked. until that moment. [men, right? they just pick something up and it was the one thing you'd been searching for. jerks. just kidding babe!]

as we continued our meandering downstairs to the "accessories" section, we also stumbled upon pillow covers [and a light bulb went off in my head]! i, natalie, the least domesticated woman i know, was going to cover my current pillows with pillow covers and not just buy new pillows or leave the current, too summery pillows [i know, i was shocked as well]. it was pretty easy [duh], and i [am so damn proud of myself that i] wanted to share the result:

 [they're quite comfy, i accidentally fell asleep on the couch saturday afternoon]

[you like those white socks? yeah you do]

so it's not martha stewart living, but i like it. 

since i'm clearly not one to think of easy home updates, i'm hoping you can give me some tips on what else i can do to spruce things up around here. comment away!

[oh and one more, more thing - my fellow americans, don't forget to vote today!]
