The beach was nice and relaxing but there is nothing like being home. These are the only 3 pictures we took while at the beach, and they aren't even ON the beach. (In case you don't know us, that's my mom in the blue.)

I decided that my bedroom needed a makeover. When we moved into the house 6 years ago (can't believe it has been 6 years!!) we decided we wanted color in our bedroom. After lots of searching Candy Apple Red won. And boy was it color. I loved it - for a while. This is what the red looked like:
Then, I found Faded Seafoam, a color by Ralph Lauren. And I loved it! But more than me loving it, Shane loved it. So, today was the day. My mom and I decided to tackle the red (fully expecting it to be a chore) But a coat of tinted primer (that stuff rocks!) and several hours later and this is what we got:
Lots of color still, which if you know me is important, but oh so much lighter and brighter. I still haven't hung stuff on the wall as of yet since the paint is still a little tacky but it's coming! I am in love with my room again! (*Please ignore the awful television sitting on the dresser. We are in the process of "updating" those also!)
I also decided to try making my own throw pillows with a great Anna Maria Horner fabric. I love this fabric and it matches absolutely perfect!

This is a custom order for a baby shower gift that I just completed. Dad is a fireman and so we wanted to use a fireman themed fabric. But, since mom is the one that will be carrying the bag I added a polka dotted ribbon to make it a little more girly. Hope that mom, and dad, like their bag.
