Let it Snow!

After what seemed like a really mild winter, we had two unexpected snowstorms in February. The kids were delighted at the chance to have a snow day and play outside, although given their lack of proper snow gear, they were quickly soaked.

Decorating Updates

We’ve slowly but surely been adding to the decoration in the house, including- at long last- putting up pictures in our bedroom. There are some areas where I definitely suffer from decision paralysis, and figuring out how I want to decorate the bedroom is one such area. (Others include buying new shoes, shopping for couches and cutting my hair.) I had been collecting images, both online and prints, that appealed to me and I finally took them all to Aaron Brothers to get them framed. Luckily it was during one of their major sales so it wasn’t as expensive as it could have been, but it was still a pretty penny! I also got a bunch of photos framed for the living room. The gallery wall in the living room is now finished, although I still want to frame and hang a few more posters in the dining room.

I think we are mostly finished with the bedroom, for the moment at least. We will have to replace our dresser at some point and I would like to change the nightstands and the lamps should we ever find ourselves with an excess of money we don’t know what to do with. Our comforter cover developed a rip and needed to be replaced after only 12 years of use. It took me a long time to choose a replacement, and I am still not sure I have found the perfect next choice (decision paralysis strikes again!). But, I like the wall color at long last now that we Eddy has painted the trim a true white. I love our new bed and our new rug. And the pictures aren’t half bad.
