I was hoping to have an awesome run, scenic photo blog ready for you today but unfortunately my running partner had to cancel last night. I’m actually not upset about it because my legs needed a day off after my PR 😉 lol
I’ll be running with her this Sunday so get ready for Sunday long run posts again I remember how much everyone loved those ;P I know I did!
In other news. I actually cooked something blog worthy this weekend!!! YAY! so get ready for this recipe coming at you later this evening….
Yep, it’s a boneless pork rib roast! and it turned out amazing so stay tuned!
As you know I’ve also been really into making my house, into a home. So Colin and I got lots done this weekend and all that’s left is to pick some paint colours (suggestions are welcome) We’ve decided on the blue for our family room but need help with our bedroom…
Yep, we moved everything around and took the mirror from the dresser and hung it over the bed – 52lbs is over my head at night!!! talk about scary. I also already told you about our wedding art that’s on the opposite wall but I think it turned out great
Although I wanted to press some of my wedding flowers in the center word gram frame – but that wasn’t possible…..
….mould is never a good sign. I smelt it as soon as I opened the drawer I had pressed the flowers in a magazine, but I guess they never dried properly – anyone that lives in Hawaii want to send me some dried flowers?? 😉 Jenn?? Nessa??
The furniture is all mahogany wood, but it’s more golden orange than red. Colin wants our room green. Our bedding is the same as the pillow cases – the duvet cover is under construction 😉 The inside part is faux swede and gets far too hot in the summer so I bought a grey cotton sheet and plan on ripping the one part off and sewing the sheet to the duvet top
You guys like seeing my home projects right???
Oh good! I thought so 😉
Here’s my finally finished bathroom – very homey if I do say so myself!
As mentioned earlier I painted all the canvasses and pressed leaves on them, using the colours in my bathroom to tie everything together. We bought that shelf from Ikea on the weekend and I mixed paint to match the mirror and cabinet. I also bought those candles there as well. The pine cone comes all the way from Yosemite National Park in Cali and the branches come from the pine in my backyard. The “vase” is actually our first soap dispenser that broke. I replaced it but kept the old one because I knew I’d eventually use it.
What do you think??
Logan loves it all and life peeing on the potty too 😛
He’s back in pull ups after peeing all over me – I was NOT IMPRESSED.
1. do you pronounce is “v-ah-se” or “v-ay-se”???
I say v-ah-se. I like it better. No clue why.
2. what colour do you think would look good in our bedroom?? (keep in mind it’s small, the wood is mahogany and our bedding is grey and black)
3. what is the last thing you did to make your house feel more like a home??
Hung a huge mirror on our wall and continue to frame pictures and make art I can’t wait till the basement is done and you guys can see it 😉
4. For all the moms – Logan can’t pull down his own pants, or pull them up – any tips or tricks to encourage this?? potty training would be easier if that skill was achieved.
