Our Friday in Photos

So they did have the chair I really liked for A.’s room last night. I got everything I was looking for at IKEA (truly a first!), met J. and had a nice little bit of sushi for dinner, got home and A. was bathed and in bed, and Em was all ready for bed, just waiting for J and I. Ahhh…so nice. It was like a little mini-date night!

Anyhow, as promised, I have pics of the girls’ rooms. I just ran up 2 minutes before A. went down for a nap and didn’t really get time to get the optimal lighting and such. Also these pics are coming straight from the camera, no “fixing” – so they aren’t the best quality, but alas you can see the rooms and get a pretty good idea. If you can’t, well, I guess you’ll just have to come out and see them in person!

A.’s room up first…

And for fun – the collage we made for the bathroom…

Yes, that really is the wallpaper in their bathroom. It is so 60’s and old…it is now retro and cool again! But I had to do white frame and b&w pics…otherwise it would have been a bit much I think! (I got all of the white frames at Target – the Sprouts kids line of frames is all on clearance at our Target out here!

I also put together the sofa-bed in the guestroom/playroom/office (that is a lot for a room to live up to!) this morning. We tried out the bed, it is actually really, really comfy! Here is a quick peek at it. I’ll post more pics when I get the rest of the room organized.

And, finally. Just a little exciting E.-related news. She can officially keep flip-flops on her feet and walk at the same time. Hallelujah, and thank you for small miracles. So here are the new kicks she talked me into this morning! (How can I say “no” to shoes? Especially when they cost $2.50 and have PURPLE flowers on them?)

**Stay tuned for my chance at Chinese Freeze Tag tomorrow! I got tagged by Colleen and promise I will come up with 10 interesting (?!) facts for you all tomorrow. (Wahooo! My first virtual “tag.” Thanks, Colleen!)

**Also in the works, my Happy Mother’s Day post to my mom, my mom-in-law and all the wonderful mommies in my life. I’ve been struggling with this one all week, but it will be up on Sunday.

Have a great weekend!

    I love the rooms and I even kinda like the wallpaper. I’m blogging now too, nothing really up yet. I just set it up…I sent you an email about it.

    Your house is so beautiful…like something out of a magazine!

    The rooms look great. It seems like a nice yellow. Nice to be able to move in and not have to get paint on everything!

    How could you possibly turn down shoes for $2.50??? I know I personally have 6 pairs of flip flops from target in all different colors. You can’t go wrong with cheap flip flops. If they get ruined… you throw them away and buy new ones.

    I look forward to your interesting facts. I was really surprised that once I got started I had a hard time stopping!
