Bedroom Makeover and a Surprise!

The weekends are just too short!! We didn't do too much this weekend, John was on call and had to work Saturday so Ayla and I did a little shopping. Speaking of which, I put a new Matilda Jane skirt on Ayla before we left. I paired it with a long sleeve pink shirt that matched and a pair of polka dot leggings. There is a polka dot ruffle in the skirt so I thought it looked cute. Well, Ayla liked the polka dot leggings but she ALSO wanted to wear a polka dot shirt (which she does have, and I can't believe she remembered) anyway, she cried for at least 20 minutes because I would not let her wear the polka dot shirt. She said that the pink shirt did NOT match. She is into matching and her clothes have to match at ALL times. It is so funny, she also has to have perfume on and her cross necklace on when we go out. It is so amazing the little things they pick up. Anyway, here are a couple of pictures before we left on Saturday. You can tell by the first couple of pictures that she was STILL upset about not wearing the polka dot shirt...lol.

We also have been doing a little mini makeover of our bedroom. We upgraded to a king bed several weeks ago and so we had to get new bedding. Then we decided to paint because the old paint did not match the new bedding (there's that word again) and we bought a few new accessories etc. The only thing left to do now is get new blinds and curtains. At the last minute we decided to paint one wall a burnt orange color as an "accent wall" to bring out the orange chair and accessories in the room. I really like how it turned out, I love a little color in a room!! What do you think? Well it's really not orange but you get the picture. The pictures are not that great because they were taken at night without any natural light.

And for the surprise, guess where we are going next month? Oh, okay you do not have to guess, I will just tell you!! We are going to ...............

disney


DISNEY WORLD!!!


We are all so excited! We are meeting friends there and they have four year old twins and that is all Ayla is talking about these days. Take my advice on this, never tell a three year old that she is going to Disney in APRIL because they do not understand that APRIL is still over 4 weeks away. No kidding, she asks every single day if today is the day we are going to Disney. We were in the car a few days ago and she saw the green interstate signs and she said, "Look daddy it says this way to Disney", we couldn't believe it, we both just started laughing. Just today I was getting ready to go to the post office and I asked her if she wanted to go with me and she said, "No I am just going to wait for daddy to get home so I can go to Disney with him"..lol. So I kind of wish I never said anything to her BUT it is so cute to see her SO EXCITED.

I hope everyone had a great weekend, I am off now to watch the "Bachelor Wedding".

Also, I have some of Ayla and Brennan's clothes listed on Ebay right now, if you are interested and want a link to my auctions just send me an email! I am listing some of Ayla's cute custom outfits!

Oh, yay for Disney world! We took our kids to Disneyland awhile ago, and I made the same mistake. Finally, I made my girls each their own calendar so they could count down the days. They were 4 and 3.

Christensen's said...

That is so funny!! My Avery is just like Ayla... she always wants to be girly with necklaces and anything girly. I'm dreading when she figures out matching! And Disney World sounds so fun!! I can't wait to take my girls in a few years.

RN Mama said...

Am I too old to wear that outfit your daughter is wearing? I want it! So adorable!

I think your bedroom looks awesome! I am a huge fan of accent walls, and the color you picked is fantastic! Oh, and I'm super jealous of your king size bed:(

zookeeperjess said...

Seriously cute outfit on the princess!!!

Sandi said...

Chelle said...

Oh I LOVE it all!

The skirt, the wall...everything.

Kacy said...

Loving the orange wall!! I don't do the typical "neutrals". My current neutral shade is Key Lime Pie...might be why I'm liking the orange. We have a similar color for our kitchen. I wish it would just "jump" on the walls.

Disney sounds great!! We just booked a condo for June. I need some of your energy.

Party of Five said...

I love the skirt...so cute. And your room looks great. I have been trying to get my husband to take down his all his Michigan posters and make our room more of a "sanctuary" like they say you should, but no luck yet. I'll keep working on it! And congrats on Disney. How fun!

Whitney said...
