Our blank wall September 21, 2010

That’s The Mister watching the Bears game this weekend.  As a matter of fact, I’d just said “hey, I’m taking your picture” but he’s in the football zone so he’s just starting at the tv.  I wanted to post this picture because of that giganto blank wall behind him.  What should we do with it?

I’ll give you a quick lay of the land.  He’s sitting on our couch (and I’m taking this pic from our recliner) with his feet propped up on the coffee table and handy dandy laptop (for fantasy football updates) close by.  Behind the couch is his office area with a desk and file cabinets.  That door to the right is a closet.   So what kind of pic would go well in there?  It’s his office, but you can see it from the living room as well.  Our general color scheme in the living room is chocolate brown and a soft slate blue.  The walls are light, so I figured we should use color with our decorations (curtains are brown, carpet is blue).

We’d said that we were gonna buy something together since most of the stuff we have at the house was stuff that we’d had separately.  This would be our first jointly purchased decoration.  Soooo…we have a blank wall.  And it drives me crazy.

Any ideas?


it’s so cute! July 18, 2010

I finally got our poster framed up and I think it turned out great.

I don’t think The Mister was all that fired up about it before, but now that it’s all framed up and professional looking…I think he really likes it.  And other folks have told us that it’s cute too.  Now we just have to figure out where to put it…which is another married first.  Trying to decorate a house together.  Yikers.
