D and His New Room

With every passing window a new frame is hung and another shelf finds a place on our walls.. The process of decorating is definitely more fun than the renovation part.. though not so sure if M would agree since he is the one with the hammer.

We started with the master bath and the master bedroom and you can take a click here to get a peak at all the renovating we have already done.

We started with this.. though I of course waited too long.. forgot to do my blogger duty of taking good before pictures.. and by the time I got around to taking the pictures we were at a point in our renovations where we were all sleeping in his room..



Nonetheless this was no cute, fun child room


The room was painted a light barely there purple.. It is his current favorite color and since we don't intend to paint the room a different color every time he picks a new favorite we picked something light, Behrs Permafrost. 


The gross old carpet was removed.. the floors sanded and stained English Chestnut.


A cute purple chevron rug and his old Ikea Kura bed. A map on the wall for my world traveler to mark is adventures.






We choose roman shades for the windows and Ikea spice racks to hold his books. I used a little washi tape to add some color.





Our old chest of drawers went to his room.. and I added some Duck tape to add a little color.



A few cute quotes on the wall to finish the room.. I have one little project still in the works otherwise I am done.. the room feels so much lighter and brighter.. just what a kids room should feel like.


I found these amazing free printables here and here

Mother's Day

Happy Belated Mother's Day to all my mommy readers.

We didn't exactly celebrate Mother's Day this year.. instead we had some friends over for lunch. The kids played and we ate and talked..

While going through so old posts I stumbled upon sweet ones about the boys and I thought I'd do a down memory lane of sorts.. So many of these posts I didn't remember and it may be a good thing because for posts sake they weren't always the best.. this little blog has come a long way.. 

When D was born I had skipped the pregnancy announcement, the birth announcement, the precious first picture.. seriously? Introducing D and then I followed up with a random check in 122 Days and Counting 







With the birth of H, D feels the need to hug more 100 Hugs but also learn with the help of books.. actually a book in particular I Love You Stinky Face that he is loved unconditionally.

Don't really remember what we did to mark the last few mother's days.. not that it would make a difference.. at the end of the day we are after all mother's which means they are bound to still wake you up early, fight with each other, listen to nothing you say and complain about everything.. yet you still want to cuddle and snuggle with them, hug them and kiss them and love them forever.

Friday Photography

       


Heaven's Web - The high ceilings of the chapel inside the extraordinary Jerónimos Monastery, in Belem, Lisbon. It is a small serene parish just outside the main city of Lisbon. The same parish Vasco Da Gama had set sail from. The place that has the most delicious custard tarts.

The Weekend

Our weekend.. especially all the food consumed


He has perfected the pout but I finally caught it on camera.. in fact he was so angry with me he even let me make a video of him tell me to 'go away!' two going on fourteen? 


We had to make a quick stop at the mall.. which of course would have been incomplete with a ride on the carousel. And getting some chocolate covered strawberries from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. They also have some of the best caramel apples! 



D's class had caterpillars as their class pet.. come spring they had become beautiful butterflies. So the children made and wore these butterfly headbands as they celebrated the release of the butterflies.


On Friday M came home a little early and the boys tossed around a ball before dinner.


I made some banana chocolate chip cake balls.. donut holes. Nothing fancy.. just a snack for the boys.



 The boys attempting to shuck corn while we fire up the grill.. 


We tried out a new breakfast place Sunday morning.. and to say the portions were big is an understatement.. they were enormous.. this was a kid sized pancake..


 and our french toast.. but they were so good. Next time we'll probably share.



nom nom.. did I mention I've been trying to eat healthy and loose a few pounds.. FAIL!

The Musical Connection

With all the renovations and everything being moved about I am on a decluttering kick.. we donated six bags last month and I have another six waiting to be sent out this week. Then there were the more gently used.. or unused items. I have two large box full that I am very slowly going through.. photographing and listing on to eBay.

While I was at it I began to look at the photographs and prints listed in my shop with a more critical eye and my website got a makeover.

And while listening to music I decided delete the songs I always skipped instead of skipping them all the time.. but then I got to a song that I almost deleted but stopped. Nostalgia took over. I know people hold on to clothes and such for similar reasons but I don't. But when it came time my music I paused. Now if my holding on to these particular songs had anything to do with my life I may be okay with but these songs are actually tied to the monumental moments in a fictional character life.. yup. 

So time to confess.. what song do you love mainly because of a tv show or movie? It may be a great song.. but your initial love affair with it started because of tv/movie. Here are mine. When I here these songs I am transported back to those shows, those scene's and moments.. 

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Sarah McLachlan's - Full of Grace. Spoiler Alert - It's right after Buffy kills souless Angel but only seconds before his soul returns and she still has to kill him.. and this song played and I cried.

2. Roswell - Sheryl Crow's - I Shall Believe - Future Max comes to tell Liz she has to break up with present day Max and they have their last dance to this song. This one I am slowly starting to get a bit more fuzzy one. 

3. Grey's Anatomy - two songs both having to do with Izzie and Denny.. once again Spoiler Alert lol.. but Snow Patrol's - Chasing Cars when Denny dies.. omg the crying.. and then Unkle Bob's Swans this is actually a really good song when Izzie feels the presence of Denny in spirit. 

4. Veronica Mars - Mike Doughty's - I Hear the Bells - Drunk Logan tells Veronica that their love story is epic.. the moment could not be more perfect. Of course he wakes up the next morning and doesn't remember the moment! 

5. Supernatural - Kansas' - Carry on my Wayward Son - seriously this song was made for this show.. it first played toward the end of the first season and from then on it has become the shows opening song.. Supernatural has a great 80's soundtrack.. you really can't go wrong with any of their songs.. But another one that really stayed with me was Styx's - Renegade.. seriously.. it was as if it too was written was that exact moment.. when Sam and Dean fall under the police's radar. 

I'm sure there are more.. but these are the ones that have really stuck with me..
