Console table talk

I don't know why but our family room just keeps stumping me. 
I guess that's what separates the wannabe interior decorators (me!) from the real deal professionals (not me!) haha. 
Every decision I've made in this room has been sloooooow and has me second guessing myself. 
Like what to do with the big blank wall that you pass by as you walk through the family room from the kitchen to the foyer?
It's a narrow space that couldn't take any piece of furniture that was deeper than 15 inches.
I searched and searched for a console table and finally went with this West Elm one:

Yay! A decision made.
But then came decorating it.
Stumped again. For months.
I blamed it on pregnancy brain. 
Then I had the baby and still was stumped, haha!
So I blamed it on mommy brain. 
Whatever brain it was, I think the fog has lifted a little and this console table is now starting to look presentable!
At least I think...there goes the indecisiveness again.

I didn't want to clutter it up so it's pretty simple.
A lamp and framed art from Home Goods, some coffee table books, a wire basket (that was serving as a light fixture in our laundry closet), a throw blanket, and a plant.

I hope you are having more of a decision-filled day than I!
Thanks for stopping by!

Sale on!

Who doesn't love a good sale?
H&M has their winter sale going on and here are a few things (some that I already own) with super low prices:

Blue and white and will keep things organized? Does it get any more "me"? It also comes in two sizes. 

I love these and have these! They were a Christmas gift and I recently shared a picture of baby Sam sporting them on Instagram.

I also have these pillow covers and shared them in this post on our family room couch (although now they've been moved to the window seat).

If this came in my size, I'd wear it! Waiting on a certain somebody to find out if they're having a baby GIRL or not this summer so I can purchase!

We used these as favors for my sister-in-law's baby shower last spring (they were blue and white) and tied them up really cute with a box of matches and a tag (you can see here on Instagram)! They have them in a two pack in pink, which would be a great shower favor for someone having a baby girl!

I'm kind of in baby mode right now, can't you tell? I love this gender neutral sweater for the winter. So sweet!

And for a few things that aren't on sale but I'm loving anyway (and are still relatively inexpensive), see here, here, and here!
