The desk is coming! The desk is coming!

UPS says my new desk will arrive by end of day tomorrow!  Yahoo!!!  So I guess you're wondering what I'm getting, huh?  Since I have the patience of a 3 year old, I won't keep you waiting.  Here she is...

West Elm's Parsons desk... well, sort of.

OK.  So I'm not exactly getting the Parsons desk.  I'm getting the knock-off from Overstock.com (here).  Mama's got a budget, you know?  From what I can tell from all the reviews is that it doesn't have the high-gloss finish, but I actually prefer that.  The Expedit bookcases from Ikea aren't glossy so I think it will work!

Speaking of budget, since the Captain decided his days of stroller-riding are over, I sold our BOB Duallie to fund the office makeover.  Nice, right?  I'm going to see if I can do it all for $350.  But just in case I'm a bit short, I'm also selling a desk and a few other pieces that just don't work in our house.  It's part of my whole effort to de-clutter our life.  Why hold on to excess when I can use the money to help our family live a better, more organized life?

If there is anything extra in the budget, here are some little office accessories I've been eyeballing:

Who doesn't need Like/Dislike stamps? ($12.99 at Jailbreak Collective)

Hanging Garden Notepad ($8.00 via Rifle Paper Co.)

Oh, hello!  Cute little brass frog ($36.00 via High Street Market)

That's it for now, friends!

xo, k
