This is going to be a quick post. I just spent the last 1 1/2 hours planning this week’s menu and making the grocery list. Why does it always take me so long?Anyway, I emailed myself the list and I’m going solo (yippee!) first thing tomorrow morning. I mean, first thing AFTER coffee tomorrow morning.
In my spare time (HA!) I’ve started work on Manu’s Big Boy Room. Like all decorating projects I take on, my goal is to spend wisely and make it look like a million bucks. I love a good challenge.
Riz’s request was that it NOT look like a catalog room which was/is a difficult request for 2 reasons:
1. I want to live in a catalog
2. The inspiration bedroom a posted earlier is from the Serena and Lily catalog.
Difficult but not impossible. I totally get what he’s saying. He wants it to look to look like our 2 year old plays and dreams in that room. Homey, comfortable, friendly and fun. A kid’s room decked out in PBkids from floor to ceiling will surely look cute, but it’s kinda a no-brainer and lacking some serious personality. This room needs to be special.
So catalog room out the window and back to to the drawing board. Here’s a sneak peak of what I’ve got so far:
Like I said, we’re moving at a snail’s pace here but I’ll keep you posted! Hopefully have it done before he’s a teenager. Yikes. That’s a scary thought…
