I'm really going to try my best to do better:)
Since I only gave a sneak peak of the boy's room I though we could start there. Yes, I kept the same comforters and room decor from their old rooms and threw it all together. I know it might seem tacky but they really like their stuff so, you know, it stayed. The hardware for valance rods were also already in place so I bought the rods for 97 cents and hung those up as well. Score!
Finley thinks I'm awesome because of the cars and gas station on his closet door. I am but I don't like to brag;)
***I am very aware how tacky all of those books are!!! Any suggestions for book ends or something cool you've seen on Pinterest? Also, the fan is tacky as well but we use it to drown out noise at night so it's not going anywhere - I guess I could hide it better though...
The space between the boys beds and the space between their closets is where I want to put scripture. Maybe I should have a contest for ideas and have a prize for the winner???
This kitchen is so much fun to me. It has a gas range and oven - LOVE. It also has a ton of cabinet and drawer space so that has been nice as well. I like the little eat-in area the most... it just feels so cozy when we sit down to eat together:)
Ever heard of thatch? It's that veiny, spidery weed looking stuff by my foot right there. It suffocates the lawn and grass can't/won't grow.
It. is. everywhere. I called around about power-raking and no one seemed to be able to help me so I went to Lowe's. I bought a big ole rake. And I hand-raked the entire front yard. Yep. It took forever, I have super sore muscles and it took about 15 garbage bags to get it all out of the way. I also may have lost five pounds from pure sweat but I'm not complaining. I have never been soooo dirty. I think Finley's bus driver thought I was nuts but she stuck with the old "honey, you are making a MESS!" To which I thought what? am I five years old? don't talk to me about my mess sister because I have to do something because I DON'T HAVE ANY FRIENDS YET!!! Umm, yes, apparently I am five or think like a five year old. Sorry. I very sweetly left it at "yes ma'am, I am. A big old mess..."
Here is what it looked like before I bagged everything. Good grief I am bored. But I'm super excited about what it will begin to look like over the next few weeks with a little TLC...
That's all for now I guess. Tomorrow we are going to put the vegetable sprouts into the bigger pots and pray for bees! And do something about the grass. Pray for me as John hasn't seen my big ole mess yet...
