NEED YOUR HELP! DYI project underway!

Yes, I have once again started a project outside of my given talents. We are doing some room swapping and I have the closets done and am ready to embark on the painting of the girls’ room. I want it to be cute but something we can keep around for a while. I found colors I thought I knew I wanted to do but now I am second guessing myself. I was going to paint the doors on the closets white and get the girls a white bunk bed. I am somewhat hesitant to paint the doors for various reasons so was wondering if maybe I should skip the white and try to incorporate more brown. I thought I had found the bedspreads I wanted but then when I saw them a second time they looked a little brighter than I wanted. I did see some plain brown bedspreads at target on sale for ten dollars. Boring, I know. But is it possible to spice them up with some throw pillows. Maybe a pink circle one and a few others with some stitched flowers on them or something? A cute throw blanket? Anyways I put together some pictures on paint of the color schemes I am thinking about. I am putting up a pole and I don't want to influence your votes with my thoughts. But as you can clearly see this is NOT my cup of tea...although I am actually having fun!

Here are the doors in the room. There are two that go to the closet. Currently the walls are tan.

Option #1:
This is the green wall with as close as I could get to the shades of pink that I like. This is it with the white.

Option #2:
Same green theme with the brown accents.

Option #3:
I didn't have time to fix this picture so imagine the dark green gone. It would be a light pink wall with the other colors accenting the room. Also these colors are not exact. The pink I would choose I think would be softer.

Take a minute to cast you vote on the poll and if you have any other helpful tips please leave me a comment!

Have a great day!

P.S. Please pray my wedding ring shows up. I am missing it! :(

Bound and Determined!

I am bound and determined to get this super fun event posted. I have set down to do it many times over the last week and a half and at last here it is!

What a great place, the Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum, in Seminole. Last Thursday the girls and I went there with my family. It was nice to have a family day; my parents, sisters and the kids. Laughter, childhood innocence...our family has been reminded recently to enjoy every moment because we do not know when we will take our last breath. It may be unexpected. Live each moment as if it were your last.

We all had a great time adults included and I laughed so hard I almost cried when Aunt Amy bravely showed the girls how the slide wasn’t scary and while doing so found herself a little panicked! Let's just say the girls didn't do it after Amy. (Click on the picture to enlarge it in order to enjoy the full effect of the experience! :) Love you Amy!

A couple times we found ourselves still playing while the children had moved on. I was a great time!

A Day with the Girls

We had a great day with the girls today! I love being able to spend
time with them. As they continue to grow older, these days seem to
become more and more valuable.

Today, Katherine took some of her first steps! I am sure more updates
are coming about this milestone :)

We grilled some chicken for lunch and had a family meal. Later that
evening, Liz and Katherine went with us to get dounuts (for the first
time) and ice cream. I took some pics with my iPhone then decided to
make this post. Hope you enjoy them!
