Girls’ Dresser Finally Done

For months now I have wanted some flower pots for the girls’ room but every time I go to the store I’d forget them. I mean lets face it, if you don’t see it in the store and its not on your list chances are you will forget it. I finally thought about them when I was in the store recently so I grabbed them.

I painted them to match the girls’ room but I had no clue what I wanted to put on them to “dress” them up. Then Adam and I were walking through Hobby Lobby and I saw these flowers that matched perfectly so I decided they would look great on them.

I’m not going to share a picture of their picture frames because the picture wouldn’t show exactly how they look but I fixed the floating glass picture frames for the girls’ dressers too. The girls love them and they look great!!

Book Shelves

Another one of my many projects in the sunroom is finally complete.

A while back I saw these cute bookcases months ago on pinterest made from pallets. So I had Adam bring home some pallets for me. After they sat on the porch for a while I finally had him cut them. I painted them to match the color scheme in the sunroom. Then I cut out letters with my Cricut in the same font as my artwork project and I mod podges the letters on.

Now the kids have a nice little reading area on the homework side of the sunroom.

Getting Bigger

I always tell everyone when they have a baby to cherish every moment. I feel like Alyssa is growing up faster than I can keep up with, she is half way to driving.

I have really cherished every moment with Bradley, between knowing he is my last, all the problems he has had and being at home with him I have made sure to really take it all in. But wow this week he has done so much that is an awww he is getting bigger moment for me.

This week Bradley has slept through the night for the first, ate 8 oz for the first time and fallen asleep without a bottle and not swaddled for the first time.

Halloween Countdown

I believe countdowns are my new favorite thing for every holiday. The kids are still talking about the one from Valentine’s and the love notes they got each day.

The one I made for Halloween was much simpler. I found the idea on Pinterest (surprise, surprise). I (well, we Adam helped me) used some scrap wood from my desk and the girls’ bookcase the make the pieces. I painted them black. Then I mod podged some festive scrapbook paper on it. I used my Cricut to cut out the numbers and letters then I mod podged them on. Quick, simple and cute!!
