The Big Bedroom Snowball

Friday, February 5th, 2010

I put a hole in our bedroom wall with the door.  Opened it too hard and it slammed into the wall. Dang it ! I am a little bit of a perfectionist and had to fix it right away. So I called our neighbor who came and fixed it for us. Cut out a square piece of drywall, replaced it then mudded and sanded it and all that. Hubby went into the basement, dug out the can of paint marked “tan bedroom paint” and rolled it over the newly repaired wall. Only it was not the tan paint from our bedroom. It was the tan paint from a different bedroom in our house. And now it looks plain stupid. And we are out of our bedroom paint apparently. So now we have to paint the whole room another color.

S0- since we are repainting I decided now would be the time to get a new comforter set to match the fresh coat of paint.  I splurged on a really nice set because JcPenney’s had a huge sale.

You know what would look really good with new paint and a new comforter set ? New furniture of course ! I figured I would get new furniture to replace this old hand me down set that I have had for years and years. Dressers, night stands, new curtains, new lamps. New pictures for the walls.

This is the most expensive hole in the wall EVER !

My little cupcake

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

My kids are nearly grown. They are 16 and 17 (pass the Tylenol !) They will always be my babies, but their baby years have long past. I was so thrilled when I found out that my brother Tim and his wife were expecting a baby ! Peyton arrived this past March and I can’t tell you how happy her arrival made me.

We live about 2 1/2 hours from my brother so I don’t get to see her as much as I would like- but every chance I get, I hog her. :)

Yesterday in the mail, I received a handmade Christmas card. My mom and Peyton made it. My mom put Peyton’s little handprint on it (in pink) and let Peyton try to write Merry Christmas to Auntie Dawn and Uncle Jon. She is 9 months old so this is quite funny. But anyway, it was signed from “Your Little Cupcake” which is what I call her and it just made my day.

So today I wanted to share pictures of my little cupcake.

Christmas shopping done !

Saturday, December 12th, 2009

I finished all of my Christmas shopping today ! At least I think so. It seems that everytime  I am at the store I see something  just “perfect” for one of my kids and it has really snowballed out of control on me.  What really gets me is that I find something for Timmy (who is very hard to buy for) and then the kids are uneven and I have to buy another thing for Alli.  These kids are raking it in I tell ya. And hubby isn’t doing to bad himself.  I would love to have me for a wife and mother…haha !
