Week 17...

Emily's challenge for this week was "Your bedroom". Either your bedroom now or your childhood bedroom. I just about choked when I read it! Our bedroom is my least favorite room in our house. Because of the reason on the card.
After we moved into our house we painted a lot. But not our bedroom. We hadn't decided what to do. Well, while I was pregnant Morgan decided we should paint it. He wanted me to have a comfortable place to breastfed and relax. But the color scheme he wanted was "blood & sun". That's what he said. Instead we got Weinermobile. Now I know you must be thinking "it can't be that bad!". Trust me, it is. It is slightly better now that we've rearranged the furniture so that it isn't all against one wall. And we did put a picture back up. And Morgan cleaned up his piles of "stuff"(insert another S word for stuff). The curtains still aren't done. Which I was making but had a hard time getting down on the floor to cut the fabric while I was 9 months pregnant. We have a beautiful duvet color that I wanted to use as our focal point for decorating. It's a paisley one from Pottery Barn. Morgan forgot about that while choosing paint colors. Well, not exactly. I told him red paint would be too much red. I think I'd rather have too much red instead of the Weinermobile. I tried to get on that show Take Over My Makeover. But they only film in CA. But I really think they'd come if they saw the room.

The 2P's challenge for today is:
What do you do around your house to usher in the spring/summer?
Anything special?
I like to clean. I put all my winter clothes and shoes away and get out all the spring/summer stuff. And I marvel at all the stuff I forgot about. I don't think it's going to be as fun this year because most of it doesn't fit.
I also love to open all the windows up and let in the fresh air. Today the breeze was blowing in and the smell of it reminded me of being at my grandma & grandpa's house. Just a lovely, fresh scent. Not stale and wintery.

My big monkey shirt is almost done. I had to blow him up 200%! I'll post a picture of me and the shirt when I'm done!

Our bedroom sounds surprisingly similar. I don't mind the colour, but there is till too much stuff and I don't like how it's set up. One more thing to work on! Love the card!!

I am practically wetting my pants while reading about your bedroom. I love the description of the colors looking like the Weinermobile and your husband's piles of "stuff" (I'm in an extremely similar situation with mine).

I love the way your card came out. So funny and cool. Is that a font you used on it or your handwriting? Either way it's great!

I enjoy the fresh air as well, It reminds me that as a child I was not so spoiled to AC as I am now :o)

Oh dear what this is so sad yet funny at the same time. Love the way your card came out :)

I laughed so hard at the part where you said he wanted you to be able to relax and breastfeed in there so he chose the colors, blood and sun. It just sounded so controdictory with those names. hahaha I think I'm going to draw you a big Weinermobile for you to hang on your walls. :)
