Room Re-do

Every nine year old girl wants a room that is her heart's desire. My baby girl's heart's desire is a more grown up, but fun room, that is blues and greens. We found a comforter we loved(!) and matched some colors to it ~ spring green, cool jazz and gem turquiose ~ to be exact. More like lime green, aqua and turquoise, but very cute indeed! I found a little old desk at a resale shop that was already "shabby chic" and cute as can be, but when baby girl saw it she didn't like! She didn't want anything "old" in her "new" room!!! I told her we could paint it turquiose and that seemed to be OK.

I have painted and need to do one more wall and then we are set. The dresser will be another day. I am hoping to find a girly chandelier and some fancy lamps. We are going to put up a shelve and make a chalkboard, put up the photo board her fairy godmother made her, and some other accessories.

I think its going to be great and she is already in love! At least it is only with a room....for now....

Let the Games Begin!!!

Well, April and May and some of June will be a little league extravaganza! We have three kiddos playing this year (look for your emailed schedule soon) and Osto is coaching Cal's team, so it will be busy busy busy! Thank God Osto is working a day job now so he can be around to enjoy this! It will be gone so soon. Chooch starts t-ball, which will be a blast!

Can't wait! If you need me, you know where I'll the corner of No Family Fare and Main Street!!! =)

Feb into March

WOW! What a blur of activity over the last few weekends! First of all, I turned 38! How can I be 38? I still feel like I am 13.

The weekend of my birthday, Osto and I went to see Tim McGraw. He found our friends who hooked us up with front row passes and it rocked! I love Tim...

Then, the kiddos went to visit Nan & Pop for a long weekend (the next weekend). Osto and I went to see Rain - A Tribute to the Beatles, a special gift from my employer in honor of my 10 years of dedicated service(!). That was a lot of fun too! That was Friday night. On Saturday we had a seafood extravaganza, since Baby Girl has a seafood allergy and she was outta town, we cooked up a mess of shrimp, lobster, scallops, and risotto and yum yum yum!!!

THEN, this past weekend, Nana came home from FL for a kid fix. She took the kids all weekend. Osto and I went to dinner on Friday. On Saturday, I went up to TC with my mom, and my great friend Gretch. We spent the day shopping, eating, gambling and drinking. I had a great time, even though I didn't win any money.

Weather is turning nice...not so much rain as sun in the past few weeks. Grass is turning green and the damn time changed! Won't be long before my thoughts turn to plants and flowers!

I've had a great few I'm ready for a little down time this next weekend.
