I’m glad I’m not the one answering the red phone in the oval office.

I’m bad at making decisions. Remember how I asked you guys to help me pick a photo for my Modern Bird print? And then I picked one.

And then Mr. Lame Sauce himself sent me the proofs, and I changed my mind.

And now I can’t decide on colors.

So, once again, interwebs, I request your assistance.

I’m not married to any of these. In fact, I’m thinking about skipping the wood tone and doing a two color. But I can’t pick anything worth a damn.

SO. Here’s what Mr. Lame Sauce has been kind enough to draw up so far.

Plum

Plum

Wine

Mediterranean

As you can see we ended up liking the full body one better after all. But I can’t decide on a color. I really DO like the plum but it seems too dark. Our living room is creams, mossy greens, mediterrenean blues, and dark browns. This will be in the living room, more than likely.

We have these pillows on our couches, to try to bring light to the colors:

And there’s just a smidgen of our rug in the background of this old skool photo:

Here’s a link to Modern Bird’s color chart.

Now…help! Please and thank you. :)

How do I decide?! I know! Ask the internets!

So, I’m super-duper-uuber stoked for my prize from Modern Bird Studios via Harper’s Happenings. Now the hard part. Picking an image.

I chatted with Megan from Modern Bird and they’re being super awesome and letting me upgrade to a 12″x24″ piece instead (in exchange for dollars, of course). I was quick to start looking at pictures. The hubs and I have it narrowed down to two;  I can’t decide. So, which one should we pick? Remember, this is more than likely being hung above our fireplace.

This is an example of their awesome work:

And here are the images we’re deciding between. Don’t even ask me which colors we’re choosing.

Huhhh. Decisions decisions.

So, HELP dear internets! Which do we choose? Abbers will forever be captured in one of these two poses (well, moreso forever than a digital copy of these photos). Which should we do?

Because I could use a little help…

I can spare $10. Can you?

How many lives can one person save?

Over 60 people. That’s the answer.

It was confirmed earlier today that my friend Sarah is indeed in a vegetative state. Her brain went without oxygen for too long and is swelling. Following her wishes, her parents are having her organs donated. Sixty people will benefit from her gift. With the tragedy of her impending death, this is the best news we could hope for.

My friend Kelley who passed away last May donated his organs as well.

If anything please take a moment to make sure that if you’re an organ donor, your loved ones know that this is your wish. Make sure your drivers license notates this as well. If you’re not already an organ donor, please consider doing so. Although the site is ridiculously archaic, OrganDonor.gov is a great resource for any questions you might have.

And again, give your friends and family the hug you’ve been meaning to give next time you see them.

(Also, a big shout out the hubs. He brought me flowers, chocolate cake and mac & cheese from Noodles to cheer me up. It helped. Until my stomach imploded. At least the flowers smell nice.)
