What day is it?

I am conviced that today Sunday or Saturday so I almost just typed a weekend recap.  I have had my days mixed up almost everyday the past week.  At least I didn't think today was Memorial day like the checker today at the grocery!

We have had a great couple of days even if it wasn't all weekend.  Sunday I watched my friends nine months old for a good part of the day.  I wasn't quite sure how active he would be but I soon learned that he is  already crawling and grabbing anything he could crawl to.  I brought him back to my house that was pretty trashed.  I finally had the motivation to get all the laundry done and get everything picked up and put away.  I was shocked at how much I got done while I was watching him.  It made me hopeful that I can keep it clean when we have kids.

Today my husband and I both had the day off so we took advantage of the headway that I made in cleaning our place.  He wiped down the entire kitchen, mopped the floor and cleaned our entire bathroom! I have yet to ever clean our shower because I always have him do it!
  In the two days I did 8 loads of laundry total.   Good thing I don't mind laundry, I love having a closet full and organized with clean clothes.
What better way to celebrate a clean home then have friends over for dinner!
We also invited my goddaughter over so our friends little girl would have someone to play with.
Just one of the many goofy things my husband love to do with little ones when they visit.

I also decided to try and find a rug for our family room.  I was hoping to find one I loved that could cover our terrible carpet stains.  The carpet was bad when we moved in but over the past 4 years it has slowly gotten worse.  White carpet is never a good idea.  I love the rug I bought but it is a lot small than I wanted.  There is a bigger one I liked but I think I will skip it since it is $350, for that price I could just replace the carpet.  Why does the price jump so much for just a few extra feet of rug?
Now that I am looking the photo it isn't too bad and it really brightens the place up.
 Have you already noticed from my picture what flower is in season?
Peonies!

I really like the rug. It has enough color and pattern to add to the decor but not overwhelm it. And, I love your vase of Peonies!

I love that rug! I am looking for a rug for our living room as well and it has been ridiculous. They are either hideous or waaaaay too expensive - hopefully, I will find something soon!

I love your green rug! Not too small I don't think. I agree, though, finding a large rug that is semi-reasonble (and is good quality) is though! I had no idea they were so expensive...anyways, love yours - where did you find it?
