Coffee Table Shake Up

First of all, you might notice something different. Something went crazzzy this morning with my blog design and I had to switch to this one, unless everyone wanted to see some crazy photobucket banner spread across the page. Not what was expecting this morning! Anyhow...

I love reaarranging our coffee table. I don't know about you but things on our coffee table tend to take a beating and things need to be switched out. Coasters are always on rotation, magazines get thrown out and books get pulled from other parts of the house. It keeps things fresh. Enter my new little ceramic elephant- what an adorable little guy he is! I found him a few weeks ago at TJ Maxx for about $7, but he just now found a home this morning. We had a thunderstorm when it was time to wake up and sleeping in and doing things around the house were chosen instead of the gym!




I also found a lamp for my desk/guest room which is still...wait for it...wrapped up in plastic. I know, it's a little ridiculous. 

Also...Happy 31st Anniversary to my sweet parents! You have been a great example for myself and my siblings for love, marriage and family.

Have a great day y'all!! xoxo.

I love the elephant! I was so tempted to get one like him at Home Goods the other day! I am a sucker for white ceramic.

Cute! Love the elephant! This post was timely for me because I'm trying to plan how to style our new coffee table when we move into our new house this summer.

We loved reading through your submit. I have got to admit it was the initial content on your weblog I truly liked as well as where I had a sense of knowing, understand what I am talking about? Anyway, keep up with the publishing as well as Im going to return once again.zara
