I don't really have anything to write about today but I thought I needed to update the blog anyway. I made my bed and that doesn't happen very often. It is currently covered in laundry that needs to be folded, but I won't worry about that until bed time. Then I'll act like I'm really busy out in the living room (ie. I'll be hiding), so Mike will just take care of it. :-) So sneaky! I hate folding laundry.

A few notes about the bed... about two years ago Mike's grandmother was giving her king size bed to DI so we jumped on the chance for a free upgrade because we were currently sleeping on a full. Cohen was jumping out of his crib, so he got the brand new full and now we had the most UNCOMFORTABLE, lumpy, saggy, smelly king size bed ever! Grandma later let us know how old it was and the following day we made a trip to RC Willey and got a new mattress. Now it sleeps like a dream.

The headboard was a lovely 1980~ shiny brass. Um... no thanks. But, it is nothing a little black textured spray paint couldn't fix. I got the brown comforter at Wal-Mart. I was surprised at how quality it was and am still amazed it is holding up so well. The bed skirt has a few issues but I can fix that once I get up enough strength to move a giant mattress (read: Mike) and take it off to stitch it back up.

I made the blue pillow cases for sleeping, and the small pink throw pillows. The other pillows are all from Craftster swaps. Yeah for swaps! The cute owl garland is my newest edition. It is also from a craft swap. I love it and it matches my bedroom perfectly. Mike is so awesome for letting pink explode in there. I've never been much of a pink person, but lately it is really growing on me.

That is all... OH WAIT! Save the date! The Boutique on Brentwood is back. It is on May 3rd (the weekend before Mother's Day so you can come and get a gift) from 10-4. As it gets closer I'll post directions, vendor links, etc. I will also be working with Christy, the organizer, on a blog for the occasion. If you have been to this in the past you know how fabulous it is. If you haven't, well... don't miss it. The house it is held in is beautiful, the other artists are beautiful, and the food is great! It is truly a wonderful day. I am so glad to be participating. We'll see you there.

Cute pillows!

I had to let you know that I read Austenland because of your book list. It was a really cute book! It was a nice, easy, fun read, so thanks for keeping that list. I'm sure I'll be reading from it again sometime soon.

May you can visit and help me decorate this house of ours. It has pretty much the same decor as our house in salt Lake. Just spread out a lot more!
Sister Evans was weak sauce!!! she was sent home the transfer following our time together and she had a TV and about 85 pair of shoes and from what I gathered no work ethic or integrity. So yeah I guess we weren't friend on any level!!! she is so out I hope yo don't have to spend too much time with her, sorry for venting!!! have a great day!!!
