A Little Less Stressed

I've started compiling some ideas to use in the girls rooms. Right now Sloan's room is bright yellow. I love the color yellow. When it's done right it can make for a beautiful room. This yellow, not so much. The same could be said for the little ones room. It is painted in two different pinks one the color of pepto bismal. It also has some pretty lame Disney stamps and stickers placed all over the walls. I'm all for the darling Disney princess rooms. Really I am. I've seen where they look very charming. The previous owners just missed the mark in this room.

So when it comes to paint I'm thinking pale colors for the walls and cream colored wainscoting along the bottom part of the walls in both rooms. I really want the girls rooms to grow with them. I think this is a look that is pretty timeless. I love the butterfly pendant idea for Sloan's room. I think it's something I could maybe make for her. We have to work with the furniture we have for the time being. I'm thinking painting what we have will pull everything together and work for now. I will be keeping my eyes open for a cute armoire for the little ones and a really unique bookshelf for Sloan. I also have plans for the giant house bookshelf in the little ones room. I'm thinking paint for the body & wooden shaker shingles for the roof. How cute would that look? Oh and I can't wait to hang up all the fun art I have for their rooms. I actually have space to do this now.

I feel so badly for being such a party pooper over the past week. I've been able to get a ton of sleep over the past two days & my girls are almost completely back on their old schedules. This has made a huge difference for all of us. Dean put the girls beds together tonight. They were delighted. Probably not as much as I was. Now I can keep organizing without the beds being all over the room. Then Dean fixed my car that I haven't been able to drive since Friday. We were so blessed that the problem wasn't worse than it was. It was the shift cable that had worn through. Dean got my car stuck at the lake about a year ago. Ever since then the cable had been wearing down until Friday it finally gave out. Dean used to work on cars and because of this it has saved us a ton of money over the years. This was a $200 fix, meaning the part cost $200. I am almost positive if we had taken it to a dealership to have it fixed it would have been double that if not more. So now I have wheels again! Dean is the best. I still haven't been able to find my camera cable. Please bare with me on the lack of updated photos. Looking forward to getting a ton of boxes emptied tomorrow. Can't wait to share the new place with you very soon. Hope you all have the best Wednesday ever!

Those are all great ideas for their room. It will look precious.

Great thing that your husband can repair your car. Auto repairs are hardly ever cheap.

Yay for helpful repairs from family and friends! There's nothing better than a little miracle just when you need something to lift you up -- wishing you and your family the best in this beautiful spring/summer weather!
