The perfect rug for our kitchen…thank you very much TjMaxx.

I won’t lie, it’s been a busy two weeks since we moved into our new house.
My sister in law and niece spent our first night with us.
A college student from Orlando came a few days later and spent one night with us on her way home.
Then, I had the amazing privilege of keeping one of my dear friend’s three kids 
while they went to Ethiopia to meet their fourth child, a precious son.
The day after they arrived, my husband left to teach at a youth camp all week in Florida.
{He was like, “Nine kids, huh?  Yeah…I think I’ve got a camp to teach at!”}
A few days later, a dear friend from Orlando arrived with her three boys in tow.
She and I had nine kids all week, and we not only survived, but we actually had a lot of fun!
Lets just say that my house got initiated and worn in. 
I only twitched a few times as the kids ran their dirty hands down the stairwell 
or propped their nasty feet on the walls!
Anywho, I’m fried with tiredness, but I did want to pop in and show you my new rug.
TjMaxx comes through for me time and time again!
I knew I wanted a calming neutral backdrop in our home, but I’d die without pops of color.
At the same time, it’s always been so hard for me to commit to a color scheme.
I think I must have made some kind of vow to never commit again back in the nineties 
when I over committed to blue, burgundy and green.
But, I saw this rug the other day, and I just knew it would be the perfect addition to the kitchen.
It’s huge…I think it’s a 5 X 7…and it looks really good next to my white cabinets and white subway tile.
I’m a little bit in love with it…makes me happy.
You know I loooove to tell you about a deal!
I scored this huge rug for 49 buckaroos….is that awesome or what?

Lemonade Makin' Mama - Oh man all of my wedding gifts were blue, burgandy and green. I HATE those colors… I pray that they never come back because it took me years to slowly get rid of and replace everything that I got in those colors!!! This post made me laugh because I SO got it… I love that you did that too.

Sarah - Love the rug. So pretty in your space :)

Megan - It sounds like the Lord has been using your new home for blessings and what a wonderful way to start your days there!

{And that rug is a steal! You always score at TJ Maxx!}
