a date!

Not a romantic date with Hubby, unfortunately, but a reminder of one of the happiest days in our lives.  I can’t take any credit for this idea because of course I saw it on pinterest, shocking I know. But I loved it and now, or very soon, it will be hanging somewhere in our home.

With all of the cleaning out and moving furniture around it was nice to be creative for an afternoon.  It also helped that is was freaking hot here today! (Your out of control Mother Nature!)  On any normal day, we would not be venturing out in this heat and being preggers, NO WAY… not even to the car thank you!

With a little white and gray paint, printed out numbers and some patience….

"Lovely" painting is now white and of course Kiddo was painting too

“Lovely” painting is now white and of course Kiddo was painting too, the only way to get anything creative done with a 4 year old, is to have something creative for her to do to, at least in this house.

Layout the numbers how you would like them, trace around cut out prints, calmly paint and….

dateI have a new painting to hang and a reminder of our wedding date!  I do know where it’s going, but I can’t show you until I have the room completed, right now it’s a disaster of half moved office space, piles of donations and an overwhelming amount of stuff to figure out what to do with (toss it Molly!).  But I will show you soon, geez we only have 6 weeks till Sneaky Baby is due to arrive, not much time left to get everything done!

Speaking of showing you the “after” photos, in the last post I mentioned the Kiddo’s big girl room was completed and I would be sharing….well, I found a new vanity for her, the one we made here, just wasn’t cutting it anymore and this new one is so cute.  Once it’s finished being painted I will show your the awesome find and the big girl room!
