A Walk on the Wild Side!

I will be walking on the wild side soon!
  Because the uber-soft, ultra glam West Elm Safari Rug should be delivered to my apartment in about a week! 
Here's the little bit of wild that will be added to my living room just as soon as it arrives!

 I am just too excited for words!  I have been dreaming about this ivory and platinum rug perfection forever!  Well maybe not forever, but you know what I mean, when you absolutely LOVE something!
Anyway you may remember seeing it when I posted about my Living Room Mood Board and the list of items I needed to get or DIY for the room!

I have an aversion to paying shipping when I order things online, and don't have a West Elm store near me.
So I have been patiently waiting until the next time we needed to make a trip to Ikea, as there is one somewhat near my Ikea.  Just in case your wandering the closest Ikea is three and a half hours away, so we really have to plan the whole run to Ikea out!

BUT yesterday I received an email from West Elm letting me know that all their rugs were 20% off!!!
 Seriously people!  These things NEVER go on sale, and you CAN NOT find a coupon code for West Elm, it's impossible!! I mean seriously impossible, have you tried?!?
I did, and people are actually selling them on Ebay!  Yes Ebay!  I mean come on!!
Anyway.....enough of my rant!....
The Safari Rug really was a good price to begin with only $250 for a 5x8 wool rug!  I just didn't want to pay for shipping, but the 20% off more than took care of that, as well as the tax AND a little something off the top!
So sometime next week my little piggies will be walking all over this beauty!
I can't wait!!
If you've got your eye on a rug from West Elm I would grab it this weekend!  I don't know how long the sale will last!  They also have some great throw pillows on sale as well!  And I do have a coupon code for sale stuff, it's take15.  Clearly giving you 15% off sale items, but I'm not sure how long that is going to last either!  It worked yesterday for me on things in their sale section!  But nothing that was a promotion sale, like the rugs!

I hope you all are enjoying a great festive weekend!
Anyone going anyplace fabulous?!?
Or planning to scout the sales that will be happening this weekend?!?
I will be hanging out with my sister, brother-in-law, and my two favorite little nephews!
Oh and of course Josh too!
Anywhoooo!  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!
