Room Redo

Yesterday was a perfect day, well, pretty close anyway. I dropped the girls at the bus stop, we said our good byes, and then Brandon and I found some good buys at Kohl’s. I was armed with good sales, the promise of an extra 30% off on top of the sales, and a $10 off coupon good towards kids clothes. And, to top it off, my little guy was the best little shopper. What a gift! The short story is that my soon-to-be 8 year old's bedroom is gorgeous. I picked up a few items to give it a fun, fresh, organized look. I came home, cleaned, organized and set up Alison’s room in a record two and a half hours. Brandon slept the whole time. See....I told you it was perfect.

This morning, however, it is back to reality. I am missing my morning gym session due to the fact that my oldest woke up, throwing up. It is my fault, really. Yesterday morning, she said to me optimistically, “I’m not going to miss any days of school this year.” I should have knocked on wood.

Gym update: I have completed 5 strength training and 5 cardio sessions. I’m on track for my goal of 13 this month. I also think I am seeing a little bit of definition in my shoulder muscles. One way or the other, I will be working out today. It will either be a home workout or one that I do after dinner.


  1. Great job on the room. It is so cute. I love the curtain on the bottom bunk. I so wish we could do bunkbeds here. Just not enough room. I love room redos. But I've done everything I can do for a while, so don't give me any ideas!

  2. You did a very nice job with your home. I loved your front living room and kids area. I never did go upstairs. Darn it! I should have.

  3. I love the room. Right now Gracin and Ally share a room but I am getting ready to turn the playroom into Ally's room. I'm excited to pick everything out and start picking colors. I need to have a yard sale first and get rid of about 1000 toys. If not, Ally will have no room for a bed.
