Valentine’s Day Decor

I’ve never been the one to decorate my house for the different seasons or holidays, but after Christmas was over, I really missed having those decorations.  I am going to start buying cute little things this year for different seasons and holidays.  Since Valentine’s Day is coming, I bought some cute little LOVE blocks.  These are cute for the mantle. I also might take them in the RV if I go somewhere around Valentine’s Day.  They’re not too thick, so I can put something behind it if I want.  I wish I could have found more stuff on Amazon, so I wouldn’t have to actually go to the store to find holiday decor.

I also got little red throw pillow covers for the couch. I couldn’t find any already made pillows so I had to buy the pillows to go inside. I want to put some square pillows in front of these that say LOVE or something else Valentinesy in front of the ones I have.  I think later today I’ll head to Hobby Lobby and get some more stuff!

Marcy Utility Workout Bench

My husband prefers to work out at home, so we have turned one of the rooms in our house into a home gym.  He needed a work out bench and some weights so he could do some additional things that don’t include our machine.  We bought the Marcy Utility Workout Bench, but it came unassembled.  We were supposed to assemble it together, but I was alone on Saturday and decided to give it a try.  I put a couple of pieces on upside down and had to go back and fix it, but even with that it took me about 40 minutes.

I don’t have any wrenches or tools either, so I had to use some random tools that came with other things I have bought over the year.  I’m pretty sure real tools would make it much easier to put it together and I could have done it faster.

I really love this bench. I may even have to use it myself if I ever decide I want to work out at home!!

Wishlist

Another great thing about Christmas is you or your family can splurge on things that you normally wouldn’t buy for yourself.  This is a list of things that I would love to see under my tree!! These are all on my wish list because most of these things I probably wouldn’t buy myself because I’m too thrifty!!  Click on the pictures for prices!!

1. This cute white puffer jacket with fur hood.  It is so cute and would be perfect when it gets cold since it’s 90% down.

2. The MacBook is on sale right now.  I never see it on sale!! I need a new one because the one I have is getting old!! 

3. I have always wanted a fancy camera. I don’t know if this is the best starter one, but it’s a great price for a beginner.

4. My house doesn’t have a good full length mirror and this one has a decorative frame.

5. This isn’t really a splurge, but I love the colors on this sweater.

6. I would love a Smart TV in my bedroom.  The one we have in our den is the best.

7. I miss my puppy when I’m at work. With the Furbo, I can see her and give her a treat! 

8. For some reason our door doesn’t have a peep hole.  The ring would be a great solution because not only could I see who is at the door when I’m home, I could see who is there when I’m at work, too!

9. I love my patio time, but the wood fire pit puts out way too much smoke. This fire pit looks good.

10. I don’t think anyone can have too many pairs of Uggs! I love the lacing on the back of these.

Pillow covers

We got a new gray couch about a year ago. It came with four throw pillows, but it really needed four more.  I had four pillows on my old couch that didn’t match the new couch, but I’ve used those pillows anyway.  I finally decided to get some new pillow cases.  I love the textures on these and they go with the pillows that came with the couch.

Picture this

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this wall.  I really didn’t want to put a big picture there because it leaves too much open space.  I decided to do a picture wall.  This is almost finished.  I’ve since added two more pictures to the left, but I need one more for the bottom row, so they aren’t included in this picture.  I’m pretty happy with how it turned out though.
