After a year and a half of looking...


In May of 2006, Ben and I took the big leap and purchased our living room set. The in-store display of my set had used these super-cute throw pillows rather than the ones that were part of the set. Face it, the pillows that come with the set are pretty much fugly. Anyway, I wanted the cute pillows. I asked the store employee if I could buy the pillows they had shown. The lady said no, so I asked where they were purchased. Lady said TJ Maxx. So for 4 weeks straight, as well as periodically over the next year and a half, I visited TJ Maxx, looking for the cute pillows. No luck. As time went by, I had given up hope of finding the perfect pillows. I'd gone to Target and Bed Bath to see if I could find anything as cute. Nope. Imagine my excitement when Ben and I decided to visit Kohls for a little shopping and I saw THE PILLOWS. At Kohls. On sale. In two different shapes (square and rectangle). Ben remembered the pillows too. I was so excited and begged Ben to let me buy them. He was reluctant (why? Long story. Basically he feels that our home is decorated like an all-girl apartment. Boo.), but he gave in. Currently I only have one perfect pillow, but I plan on going back and buying one more square, one rectangle. Hooray, I am a happy girl! ps- the furniture store lady sucks. It was Kohls, not TJ Maxx.

I think she sucks b/c she couldn't sell you the pillows. HELLO? Why not make a sale & go buy more pillows for the display. That's just dumb. Anyway...love the pillow. Our bedroom is the same color scheme. And I bought our pillow (single, yes) at Kohl's too!!!!
