Anyways the reason for this post is much more pressing. I have bought a new bed spread. And a lot of throw pillows. Which Marc hates.
Let me start from the beginning. When Marc and I were in Egypt we bought this beatiful, intricate bedspread which I absolutely loved!! (And still do!) However when we got it home we realized that everyday wear and tear on the bedspread was making it pill and some of the seams were starting to tear. Being that I am IN LOVE with this design and that a trip to Egypt to replace it if we wreck it is not happening anytime soon (although I would totally be up for it, cheap juice here I come!) and I would be devestated if it was ruined, I decided it was in my best interest to purchase a new bedspread. My plan for this one is to hang it on the wall to display it.
And here's the new bedspread, which both Marc and I love! The pillows, not so much! I love them and think they look great! Marc however does not.
Please disregard the tags on the pillows, I (or should I say we or he, because I have decided) have not yet decided whether to keep them or not.
Soooooo... what I am trying to say in this long, disjointed, rambly post, is that I love the pillows and think they look great and tie the room/bedspread together but Marc hates them. He doesn't hate the way they look, in fact he thinks they look quite nice, he just hates throw pillows in general. He thinks they are totally non-functional and make it impossible for him to lay on the bed during the day. He was not open to my suggestion of moving some over before laying down. I also was willing to compromise and take two of the pillows back. He is not willing to take that compromise and wants me to take ALL of the throw pillows back. My penchant for throw pillows is not new, before we went to Kenya I had quite a few on the bed as well. Not quite 8, but still! (Is there really 8 throw pillows on the bed?! That is a lot!)
Anyways, I am opening up the discussion here. What do you think of throw pillows? Should I convince Marc to keep them? For those of you who know Marc this will be quite the feat, in fact if I can convince him to change his mind I will deserve an award along with Girliscious! Hopefully not the same one though!!!
