no doubt about it...

our gussy bear is one happy pup...
he is also slightly spoiled, esp while daddy is away.
gus and i spend lots of time together then.
i'm lazy...
i plant my bum on the couch...
make a gourmet meal of spaghettiO's with meatballs for din...
and i share with the pup...
yes, i eat on my couch, its comfy!
i use a children's trix cereal bowl and a baby spork.
pathetic, i know! ;)
at least gus thinks they are lip smackin' good.

anywho....
remember how i mentioned that my mom was making us a cushion for our window ledge in our office?
well, turns out the cushion was just a tad too small....

when i sat the cushion up there gus immediately started jumping up and down so i would put him up there, ya know because everything we do is for him! duh ;)

my mom had bought the cushions on clearance and we just assumed they would fit perfect on the ledge.
not.the.case.

the lime green pillows with the black ribbon flowers turned out perfect though!
my mom made those for us as well!!
for 2 pillows it was under $10!!

close up of flower with the damask button...
once billy gets the tv mounted on the wall, the other pillow will go where the tv is.
it will be a miracle if that tv ever gets hung. i bought the stand 3 weeks ago, it just sits in the box right in front of the tv.
paula dean was teaching me to cook...i think she was making some fish dish so i wasn't paying much attention. since the cushion didn't work on the window ledge and gus thinks everything is for him, we just put the cushion on the floor as a big floor pillow for him, it has lime green buttons too, i'm quite bummed it didn't work as planned....
although, he seems happy about it!
so i suppose if he's happy, i'm happy :)
as for my knick knack/accessory stand, i've added and changed a few things up.
here is an updated picture...

well, that's all i've got for today.
i apologize for being a bad blog friend, i am catching up as i can.

happy wednesday!

p.s. please pray for megan's sweet baby cohen!
the link to her site is on my right side bar!!

Aww your dog is too cute. I've got a set of small dog stairs at a window in my apartment so my pup can sit there and look out. haha, is it the most fashionable thing? No, but she loves it!

Hi.
Thanks for being a new follower of my blog. I visited yours today for the first time and I like it. I love that green pillow. I have a thing for lime green. My wedding was lime green and brown...in August...beautiful. I know you're planning a wedding right now. Feel free to go back (August 2008) on my blog and take a look at some of our lime green options!

Oh gus....cant help but spoil a face like that :)

Meant to be a mom said...

I love spagetti O's. I thought I was the only adult who still eats them :)
Also I too eat on the couch every night. Just recently I started to realize we will have to stop soon since we have a baby. We will have to set an example and eat as a family at a table :(
I love my lazy couch eating though.

Also the pillows look great. I love the cushion. Too bad its too small. Did you say whether she is making another that's bigger?

Meg said...

Love Gussy! I am glad he is quite satisfied with the window bench. I would be to if I were him.

I love the pillows your mom made, she did a great job.

I think your Gussy and my Roman Noodle would be able to switch place and they would never know the difference--they are so spoiled!
