Guest Room Part 1

Today, I have taken off from the new house work and gotten some much needed rest! I slept till noon if that tells you anything. My doggles have been lonely, and neither they or Snuggle Erik knows how to clean up after themselves so I have spent today in Brentwood sweeping piles of chomplings and gathering dirty dishes from around the house and washing clothes. I attempted to run some errands but the wind ripped right through my clothes so I had to come back home. I also, cut my finger open in the shower this morning ON A SHAMPOO bottle! You ask , HOW does one do such a thing and I tell you I am unsure except that it was falling and i was scrambling to catch it and it literally peeled off a thick hunk of skin on my pinky finger rending my right hand not so useful. Pretty eventful day wouldnt you say? ha
But I blog, because 2 things. We have had some action on the Washer & Dryer front. Sears, who I told last week to shove that washer and dryer, has given it some thought and called back to wheel and deal. After a 15% discount, and an upgrade to the super fancy washer and dryer combo, I have agreed to purchase from them. They are supposed to be delivered on Friday. I tell you all, that I would never recommend buying a house with no appliances, as it has been a nightmare.
Next, I am trying to figure out what to do in our smaller guest room, and I thought what better way to figure that out than to ask our potential guests. What do you guys like to see or have in guest rooms? I know I always like staying at the Pauley's because Caro has good guest stuff. She has awesome pillows in her guest bed, and comfy sheets, and a guest bathroom, and a FAN! Also in the spring, she (in true souther fashion) puts Gardenia blooms in small silver bowls with water! I love that! JessiDesign has a nice guest room because her bed is all white and clean and fluffy like the Westin Hotel beds!
So what do you guys think? I say so far:
White (nice sheets)
2 fluffy pillows and 2 flat pillows
nightstands with lamps
a TV
a suitcase stand

I will post a vote and some pics of color schemes so get votin!
Hope everyone is warm and having a good weekend!

Ha! I think "chomplings" may be my new favorite made-up word!

as an avid guest bedroom stayer at chad and cory's, i have to say that i love their fluffy comforter, tv, ceiling fan, and a bedside lamp for reading. the best is that there's always some random book and/ or magazine in there if i forget my reading!

keep it up with the house posts. i'm moving soon and i'm just loving all your ideas! it's nice to have a fresh palette.

I just love the orange comforter. I've been wanting to redo our guest bedroom with orange...I think it is a happy theme, but the green is nice and serene. The house is looking so good!

- 100% cotton sheets (white)
- down comforter with cotton duvet cover (summer weight)
- throw blanket
- lamp with 60 watt bulb
- small fan for noisemakerizm
- vase with fresh flowers day of arrival
- set of clean bathroom towels on the bed
- just a few books or new magazines
- and a luggage rack is very handy, bench or slipper chair will work too

I'm for option 3 all the way!

Thanks for complimenting Caro's stuff. As long as you have a tv and a fan, good stuff. Great job on everything.

Thinking about getting a car insurance quote?
[url=]Car Insurance[/url]
A growing number of people are dropping their auto insurance to try to save money, according to a recent study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC). If the current rate of unemployment continues, the IRC estimates that the national uninsured rate will climb from 13.8 percent in 2007 to 16.3 percent in 2010. With that many people driving without coverage, it's dangerous to be uninsured. But how much car insurance do you really need?
If you're like many people feeling the pinch, your inclination is to get the bare minimum of insurance coverage required by the law in your state. That's a good place to start, though those minimums may not fully protect you -- or your assets -- if you file a claim. We recommend getting more than the minimum coverage unless you are driving a beater and have no assets to protect.
