Hey y'all!

Found this while shopping yesterday.  

How cute is he?

I think it's gonna look great in the newly painted bathroom. EEK!

Winter projects continues

Hey y'all!

Remember this post from way back when? Well, it's time for a change, and to say bye bye to the monkeys. 

Apparently we love this gray by Sherwin Williams.  So far we have painted the hallway going into this bathroom and also the bathroom, and our office.  We are also painting Mason's room gray.

We decided to put the shelves back in the same spot after painting.  

 Now it's time to decorate.  Mason has decided he would like a seashell bathroom.  I agree. We love the the beach and what better way to bring it into our home. 

I found this artwork on and of course my first thought is...  I can totally make those and they will look super cute in this bathroom.

I'm loving this crab!

 We have wood leftover from our deck project, so I am totally on board with another diy!  I mean how hard could it be, right?

I have a vision of white and navy with some accents of orange (per Mason's request).  Having a plan in mind seems to help me pick out items when I'm shopping.  Sometimes having a vision can go way wrong or I get disappointed afterwards if it doesn't turn out they way I had planned. 

I would like to have a display of seashells on these shelves.  Maybe a picture or two and I feel like I need something with some height.  

Obviously our monkey shower curtain must go.  I'm thinking a white shower curtain with maybe a stripe or two of navy. 

An oar would look really cool here, don't ya think?

HomeGoods here I come!

A little bit of color

Hey y'all!

Why is it that every January we're all scrambling around organizing and re-decorating? May be it's just me.  I had/have a list of "winter projects" and so far only 2 of them have been accomplished.  Well, 1 and a 1/2.  

We've lived in our home for 4 years now, so we felt it was time for a little bit of color.  Painting a room can make such a dramatic difference and make it feel so much more "homey". 

Off we go to Sherwin Williams!

These are two of the color swatches we picked out.  First up was the master bath. 

 We chose Raindrop for the master bath.  It turned out a little darker than I thought, but we do get a lot of natural light coming in from the window.   

I love to see comparison pictures. Especially side by side.  You can really see the difference.  I'm loving it already.  And now I need to replace that runner. 

Next up will be the master bedroom, but in the meantime, we started painting the office. 

The color we chose for the office is called Online (3rd one down from the top). Actually, we are painting the guest bathroom, and Monkey's bedroom this color as well.  I never realized how neutral gray can be.

This is a work in progress.  We have finished painted, but after it dried we noticed our brush marks.  Being OCD that we are, we will go back over some of the areas with a small roller.  The roller will hopefully give the wall texture and cover the brush marks. 


Stay tuned for more updates as I'm sure I'll HAVE to buy more decor accessories. See ya later!

Another first

Hey y'all!  Happy New Year!!

Yes, I know.  I haven't posted in quite some time.  I promise to update soon, but in the meantime, I just had to share our excitement! 

Monkey lost his first tooth!  

He was beside himself with excitement!  We knew his tooth was loose, but we wanted him to decide when he was ready.  We didn't want the first time to be traumatic. HA!

Actually, during the weekend, he started wiggling it.  He said he needed to "get it ready"! 

Then all of a sudden there it came.  He pulled it out all by himself (after we looked at it a couple of times).  

As soon as the tooth was out, he says, "I have to hurry and go to bed so the toof berry will visit me"!  Oh my gosh!  We were all laughing and so excited for our little buddy!

 Such a big boy getting the tooth out all by himself!

Way to go Mason! We love you!
