HI! My name is Emmy....

...and I suffer from new-home-obsession.

Hi, Emmy!

It seemed like from the second I signed my life away on that home buying contract, I turned into a crazed HGTV-obsessed woman who thought non-stop about what we would do with the new house. Since we are going into this knowing that we will be in this house for a looooooong time, I want to love it. I don't want to put things up around the house just because I have them; I want them to either have meaning or be something that I truly enjoy looking at everyday.

Thus, my obsession.

It started out as innocent browsing....some home decor blogs that I would view while at work, flipping through catalogs at night...then I started visualizing some stuff in our new home and I just couldn't help myself. I started buying. Some picture frames at IKEA, a new comforter set for our bedroom, some lamps at Target (hey, none of the bedrooms have overhead lighting---we'll need lamps right away!) and so on. Brian ordered me to stop the madness. As the pile of new stuff grew bigger & bigger, he had to keep reminding me that this was just more stuff that would have to come with us. But I can't help it---when I see something I love, I panic that I'll go back & it won't be there anymore!

Yesterday, I was in Pat Catan's and they had a bunch of picture frames marked down; I picked up a frame that holds a ridiculously large sized picture (16x20, I think?) for $10. $10!!! It will be perfect for one of those beach pictures we took last week....

You may remember my post from a few weeks ago that I purchased an all-white comforter set and that I was a bit nervous about how long it would actually stay white. Then I was in Marshalls a few weeks later and found this set:

So, what is your opinion on the comforter sets?? Should I be bold and go white? Stick with the new paisley? Or keep both? :) What's an obsessed home girl to do??

I don't think there is even a decision to make...KEEP BOTH of course! The white one will be beautiful but will look worn if you keep it out all the time. Thus, you need to to interchange them and keep them looking new. You can't do that if you only have one, silly!
