I finally ordered a sofa today! After many months of agonizing over where to buy, what fabric, and style I chose a camel back, in khaki with blue toned accent pillows, from Bassett Furniture. The one below is the style I picked but not the fabric. I am so glad to have finally made this decision as our current sofa is shot, you almost need someone to pull you up every time you sit down you sink so much! I hope to post pictures of the new one once it arrives and I make a few changes to the living room.

These are just some completely random tid bits...

My hair tends to have a dry damaged texture mainly due to the fact that I highlight my hair blond and constantly use a flat iron. I have found that Redken Cat Extreme works really well to repair my damaged hair and give it a smooth shiny texture....I am by no means a beauty expert but if your hair tends to be dry this will do the trick to get it looking happy and healthy!

I am ready to decorate for Christmas...don't be surprised if by next weekend I tell you that I have decked the halls!

REALLY.....Sarah Palin's Alaska on TLC....Yes that's right,the women has a reality TV show ( it is called a documentary)...I am not going to judge until I see the show, but again, really...!

The Rehearsal

Keeping with the casual feel of the wedding we had the rehearsal dinner at Sugar's Ribs in Chattanooga and everyone dressed in their "western best." The BBQ at Sugar's is really good and they have a ton of homemade sauces to try. Their sides are also really good, grilled okra, potato salad, and slaw just to name a few, if you are in Chatt-Town and craving some BBQ I would definately recommend it!

Rich, Adam and Rebecca ready to decorate

This boy ties a nice bow! White mums placed in brown paper bags with red raffia bows were used as the centerpeices, they turned out really cute!

The Lillian crowd having some fun...wish I knew what was going on here haha
Ready for the big day!

After all the sewing, measuring, and me having poor Peggy move the fabric over and over it looked so great! I feel that it really made a statement and turned out even better then I pictured! Thank you so much Peggy and Terry, it looks so was just perfect!
