Since I moved into this house in December, I have not completely settled in. Yes I moved all of my stuff in but I haven't added any real personal touches. But all of the sudden after I read "Heaven is Here" by Stephanie Nielson something snapped inside of me that made me realize that I needed to be more domestic. That was 4 weeks ago and ever since then, I have made every single dish, cleaned my house from top to bottom, and now I am in the process of adding my touch to the rooms.
I started with Cara's room. Her room was so bare before, there was nothing on the walls, and it was just pretty much a crib. I am not done but I will give you a sneak peak!
People do not realize the fun and creativity you can have with thrifting. It's rare when I don't do it at least twice a week. When Scott asks me "Your going AGAIN?" I rationalize it by telling him- "Oh I'm just looking" and before he gets home from work I put all of my new treasures in a safe place.
(Hahaha! Shh! A girls gotta have a little fun right!?)
I am going to add freshly painted dressers and a white rocking chair with new pillows that I'm hoping one of my sisters can make for me because I am not quite there yet with my sewing.
After I was done revamping Caras room a bit, I had to make dinner and a little dessert. I would snap some pictures, but A. I lost my Cannon camera in South Carolina (I know don't remind me...) and B. the problem with my meals are, they are DELICIOUS (or so I've been told) however the presentation lags. I have to work on that. But heres the recipes-
