Reasonable Rug...

First off, I LOVE SNOW DAYS.  Just had to get that out.  The Dunkmeister and I are getting so many things done.  He's been to potty twice, eaten his breakfast, and laid on the couch all morning.  It's a rough life, but someone has got to live it.  Me?  I've slept in, watched Live with Kelly, started laundry and the dishwasher, and received some decorating advice from the Mom-ster over the phone.  Again, a rough life.

I do have plans to paint a little something today, as well, and I will be sure to update if I get it done.  A snow day wouldn't be the same without a paint brush.

But that's not really what this post is all about...

I added a little something to the foyer...

Can you see it?

Yep, there it is.  I added a really cheap rug in front of the new black piece.

I know we've all seen it.  Who hasn't spotted this rug at Urban Outfitters?

For a long time I have had my heart set on this one from West Elm.  But when I realized the price difference between the two would be somewhere around 70 dollars (ouch), I decided to save a few bucks.

I also found a 20% discount online, so this 3x5 rug cost me 31 buckaroos.  Let's just say this might be Andy's new favorite rug.

So, that's it.  The reasonable rug that adds a little pop in the foyer.  Stay tuned for a guest post from none other than The Andy Bozeman.  I've asked him put his money-managing ways into words for you, so he'll be back with some budget ideas for everyone in this new year.
