pillows, pillows, pillows. never too many pillows.

our first fight argument as an engaged couple was over the number of pillows we would have on our couch.
we were in the middle of a large furniture store.  we'd gone to get ideas of each others "style."
he saw a staged living area, and the couch had 7 or 8 pillows on it.  
then went on to say "we'll never have more than two pillows on our couch. ever."
i laughed out loud.
but he was serious. 
we politely argued our points in the middle of the store... 
until a nosy sales lady came up and asked if there was a problem.
he said we couldn't decide about the number of pillows.
she said to pick the piece of furniture first.
...which makes sense b/c her job is to sell furniture.

here we are 3 1/2 years later and he has a much softer side for decorating now.
as he takes pillows off the couch when he lays down he says,
"babe, i sure love your pillows."

wanna guess how many pillows are on our bed?
we have 9 ...but until the other day we just had 8...
{4 of the pillows are behind the decorative pillows. we each sleep with 2.}

do you ever have a moment when you walk into a room and wonder 
"why did i make that decorating decision?"

a couple of weeks ago i noticed that something about the pillows on our bed seemed off...
then i realized that i only had 2 euro shams and 3 sure would fill in the extra space nicely.

i ordered 1 additional green apple pearl embroidered sham from the fabulous pb

pottery barn
a few days later it arrived at my door.
i opened up the pkg to find my euro sham, stuffed it, put it on the bed, and ta-da!
what a difference it makes!
now i just wonder why it took me so long to notice...

i didn't tell hubby about the additional sham, i wanted to see how long it would take him to catch on.
it took about 1.5 days, and he is totally ok with it :)
