I drove my children to school this morning, just like any other morning. Except that this morning happened to be trash day. I felt my van turn down into this neighborhood right before the school. I saw what looked like it could have been a metal shelf in a trash pile. I was thisclose to picking it up. Since I wasn't sure if all the components were there, I decided to drive on. This neighborhood is still being built, so there was a dumpster in front of one of the houses. I caught a glimpse of chunky wood and chicken wire. Be still my beating heart...I pulled over and rescued this piece. Isn't it fab?!?! I am seeing a jewelry organizer!! I just need to detach that funky piece of wood off the top and hang 'er up!!
Earlier in the week I got a wild hair to do a switcheroo of bedrooms. We gave the kids the master bedroom-all four of them are in there!! We took the original master, which Jackson, Lilly, and Fisher were sharing. I love it!! It is so cozy. Our other master, which was built on sometime later after the house was built, along with my "backroom" from the last post, is gargantuan and works much better for the four little people than this other room. I cannot wait to fluff my new love nest!!! Here is my inspiration for the color scheme...
I'm lovin' this tablecloth from Target!! I think it would make the prettiest curtains!! I was teetering on whether to get these for my bedroom, or use the curtains I made for my living room in the last house. It would certainly save money!!
Yesterday Jackson and Lilly got in the van and said, "Mom we need team shirts or jersey's to wear tomorrow!!" This was vaguely familiar sounding-something for Relay for Life, where they pay a dollar to wear their favorite sport teams shirt. Only problem is we don't have a favorite team-not being sports fans and all. Jackson informed me his teacher said if they didn't have one then they could just go to the store and buy one. Um, okay??? So, I despaired for a minute, then called Jenny. I was pondering just going to Wal-Mart and praying to find inexpensive team shirts, when Jenny suggested going to look at Goodwill. Duh!!! Isn't that what I always do when I need something??? So, we went and we found some shirts. Yay!! Represent'n the Bulldawgs, yo!!
Whew...Happy Friday, y'all!!
