Sadly, my green chair nearly matches the walls. Ugh. I L.O.V.E this chair. I got it from Nebraska Furniture Mart years ago and think it’s basically the best piece of furniture we own.
Note my best friend and I on my wedding day. I rocked some pretty epic Nike 6.0’s and love them dearly. They’re my something blue and nod to my quirky personality. Anyone who knows me knows I have a love affair with high heels and tennis shoes. An odd combination, I am.
My dear mama gave me the lamp and I love how it classes up my work area. There’s no work to be done unless I’m gazing at my super hot man. The picture is from our honeymoon in Hawai’i. I like his facial scruff. My grandmother gave me the two frogs as she always informed me I had to kiss a lot of frogs before I found my prince. We won’t talk about me kissing “frogs” but I will gladly ramble about my Prince. My other trinket is from my parents from my college baptism. Finally, my prized picture of K. She’s just a few months old here and covered in blackberries. So full, so happy, such a little princess.
I’m loving how this space turned out and am on the market for some book shelves for either side of the window. I’d like to install some french doors to the right to make it a little more formal but that’s just wishful thinking.
On to K’s room…
One of the few good things about Topeka was getting the hair ribbon from the local mall. I love that darn thing just about as much as K loves having a bow in her hair. She just can’t escape from my bow obsession. Poor girl.
Go ahead and tell me how awesome her walls are. Yep, my man did that. All by himself. Over a weekend. And it.is.perfect. He’s such a perfectionist and I’m proud to call him mine. I love to brag on him and how awesome he is at being handy.
I’d really like a white vintage mirror above her dresser but considering she’s tried to climb on the darn thing more times than I can count I think it’s in her safety’s best interest that we refrain from glass in her room.
My domestic ignorance caused for the curtains to be hung two inches too high. I’m too lazy to fix them.
We have yet to buy a frame and headboard for her big girl bed as she still climbs out all the time. We’ll get on that soon(ish) and add a nightstand and be good to go. Bed goodies compliments of Pottery Barn Kids and Target.
Finally, the playroom. This was my special project for K this morning. I kicked her out until I had all the food, blocks, toys and other stuff organized and welcomed her to the wonder that is her playroom.
The McDonald’s play set is mine-circa 1988. My fondness for cooking goes way back y’all. I’m surprised it still works and is in such awesome condition giving the dozen homes that toy has been in.
My favorite! The nook! K loves to read and I love having a little area for us to relax, snuggle and read stories. We’ll see how long the stuff stays organized…
I’ll go ahead and pat myself for a job well done today. I’ve failed to post pictures of the explosion that happened to our living room as I moved things out of bedrooms. Chris has a great evening of attic organizing ahead of him. Don’t worry, he loves me 🙂
