Hello Easter!

So the Easter Bunny struck a day early who cares?! I was done with St. Patricks Day and was ready to get in my Spring stuff! This might also have something to do with the arrival of my BRAND NEW SILHOUETTE! So this is what my overly shelves looked like this morning.

Here they are now!
I got this cute little tree at the Dollar Store and propped it up on a wood block so that it would show behind my 2x4 blocks. I just cut all of my letters out on the Silhoutte and Mod Podged it all together.

I got these babies in the dollar been at the "Red Walmart" and I had to put my cuties initals on them. I want to fill them with something but I'm not quite sure what yet.

I also made the penant with my new fun toy!

Hope you all have a great day :)

Living Room Makeover

Hello there! I know I haven't blogged in a while but we have been doing some renovations to the house and well I had baby #3 so I have been a little busy.

When we first bought our house this room was a big ole stinkin mess! I wish I had the pictures to show you, picture linoleum floors and awful dark paneling oh and the fact that there was once a kitchen in this room!

We ripped out the kitchen laid new floors and painted all the walls white.
(Yes that's big brother haha)

 It sat like that for a while and I got the bright idea that if I painted the walls YELLOW that it would tone down my red furniture, yeah right!

This is what it looked like after that. I loved my picture wall.

These next 2 pics came from Christmas morning but they were the only shots I could find of these 2 parts of the room, you can see we have this weird corner between the kitchen doorway and the hallway doorway.

Ahh Young and the Restless :)
Now after 4 years of all of this I couldn't stand it any longer. So my wonderful twin sis over at Semper Fi Life and my kids Nana came over to help me out with this huge project, seein as how I was 8 months pregnant and all. I needed all the help I could get!

Some paint, new furniture, blood, sweat, tears(children's tears b/c we wouldn't let them in the room), and a frazzled pregnant woman later and here she is in all her splendor!
Yes that's my Christmas tree under there ;)

Sis keeps making her way into my shots hehe :) I moved the Hubs recliner over to the weird corner, I'm still trying to figure out if I like that or not. Also I think it needs more color but for now I am thrilled with it!
