So so so, I’ve been feeling like I’m living in a nut house lately. I don’t even know where to begin but lets start with the exciting fact that the Christmas Blogger Stylin Home Tours are starting today (6 am) at Lindsay’s of The White Buffalo Styling Company.

Here is a little sneak peek and yes it involves a flocked Christmas tree that I’m so so so excited about.
That was the good news. Besides the Christmas decorating and getting ready for the tours, I have been an emotional mess. If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram then you already know why. I received the bad news that our Monkey’s second blood work results show that she has kidney failure and it breaks my heart. I was so thrilled to have her with us and inside and safe for the second winter and now this. My son was crying that it isn’t fair after her having such a rough life and now this and I agree with him. She deserves so much better. She went back for fluids twice since I blogged about it last time and I’m going to try the fluids at home yet too. I will try some holistic approaches but she’s been declining fast and hasn’t been herself.
I took this photo of her on Caturday while she was snuggled up next to the fireplace with me. It makes so sad.
And then I dropped off my mom at the airport yesterday to fly back home which left me even more sad.
I hate that there is an ocean between us.
One more thing, remember when I mentioned a while ago how much I hated our basement family room and how disgusting the sofa was from our first cat who died of kidney disease/failure? I have been wanting to work on the basement for so long and we are finally getting a new sectional.
It’s the American Signature Furniture Koehler Athens Sectional. I’ve always also wanted to see what a sectional would look like in our regular living room though, so before moving it into the basement, I want to clear out our living room and see what it looks like in there. And yes I’m totally insane because it means that I have to remove all the beautiful Christmas decor just to see… Thats’ how I work I guess. Insanity!
Putting this modular sectional into the basement is another issue because the corner pieces are too big to fit through the doorway and staircase!!!!! But I am determined to make it work somehow because I love the way it looks and how comfortable it is. What did I get myself into.
So stay tuned to see how this will work out. Yikes!

And H&M which is my favorite pillow source which I’m sure you know already has Cyber Monday deals with up to 30% off entire purchase and free shipping, with an additional 40% off all sale items.
