I had my favorite seamstress make me new pillows for the family room, and I am loving the black and white! (Confession, I've had them for about a month but I've been busy with Netflix's instant streaming – watching 30 Rock, Parks & Rec and Lost. Totally worth it).
Once I'm employed, replacing the shag rug is the first thing on my list. Dogs and shag do not go together. Just a heads up.
In other news: I got my first interview today! Sure it may not lead to anything, but it's a step in the right direction.
