2) When I shared some of our paint progress several of you asked about Kole’s room. Here’s a look at how his room is coming along! I choose another grey (surprise) but one with more of a brown tone (it ties in with his bathroom). I have fun plans for his room! But they aren’t happening right away. His room is upstairs with the girls, but for the next year or two while he is still little I’m going to put him in our guest room because it’s closer to our master bedroom. He is still in a crib (I wanted to wait until we move and get settled before buying a bed for him) and potty training is still a work in progress. To say the least. I hear over and over each day about how the potty is “scary.” And because of everything we have going on with the new house there has been little time for consistency on my part. I would have been in a total panic if my girls weren’t potty trained by now. But that’s what happens when you have multiple kids. You learn to mellow out. In addition to learning how to mellow, I am also learning that boys are so different from girls in so many ways. Speed is one of them. :) I told Kenny that if he starts Kindergarten and still isn’t potty trained that is when I’ll start to stress. SO. For the above reasons (and because I’m not quite ready to admit he isn’t a baby anymore) I’ll be keeping him close to me and decorating his “big boy room” when I feel like he is a big boy. And when the potty isn’t quite so scary of course.
This is a fun bench seat in his room with nice, deep drawers for trucks, trains, puzzles, and most likely anything Toy Story related.
4) A couple more of my TV iPhone pics. These are from HGTV’s High Low Project. LOVE the striped rug and navy nail head chairs in this dining room. I’m going to have a striped run in my house. Not sure what color or in what room, but I will have to have one somewhere. I have loved them for so long. Am I alone in this obsession?
7) I’d love to share a really sophisticated book list full of classics I’ve been reading this summer, but if I’m being truthful, the above pic (and others just like this) pretty much sums up my summer reading material. And my Fall reading material. And Winter and Spring. I’d also love to share some of the tips I’ve picked up from all of my reading but I’m to busy doing this…
