Man it’s been a while. Hasn’t it? I’ve been so busy doing this mom thing that I haven’t really had time to myself to work on the blog. As it is, this post will probably take me all day. It’s 7:54 am and I’m pretty sure my little guy will be stirring any moment. Since it’s Father’s Day, my “big guy” is still sleeping, so no worry of interruption there. I got up bright and early, made myself some coffee, put together the french toast casserole and sat down at my kitchen table for some writing.
This morning I was looking back on my second ever blog post- Needs and Wants for 2012 and Beyond. I haven’t completed any of it!!!! Really?? Check it out, I promise you’ll be thoroughly disappointed.
The whole point of that was that we ARE making slow progress on our zen like bedroom. For a refresher…here is the Polyvore set I put together as a map for what I was looking for in our master bedroom.
Pre-full length mirror. I’d gotten very good over the last four years at standing up there. Good thing we just got life insurance. Oh wait, now I have the mirror so I no longer have to endanger myself.
Here’s what the top of my dresser has shaped up to look like. The jewelry tree was a gift from my sister in law. I actually like how it artfully displays my earrings. I’ve tried to keep it organized so it doesn’t look all haphazard like. Normally there is a cat bed on top of the dresser, however for the sake of making our room look “really put together” for the blog, I hence removed it. The cats can sleep anywhere, right?
The bedding has always been a source of contention with me. I’ve tried many different things. Somehow, Chris’s comforter from college always wins out. It’s so damn comfortable but incredibly ugly, not a queen size, and no where near the “elegant” I’m going for. Since we bought our new memory foam mattress I purchased some yellow microfiber sheets from Target and we have a king size white duvet for the time being.
Here’s the rest of the room as it stands today. Although it is Father’s Day, I did ask Chris to help me clear off his dresser and nightstand. For what it’s worth, I had to do mine too.
Everything with the room has been tied back to the Kate Birch print. I love the little birds and the colors of it.
I’m super happy with our new full length mirror. It was definitely worth the year or so wait to make sure that’s the one I wanted. We still need to:
1. Purchase and install wall-mounted lighting
2. Figure out bedding once and for all.
3. Perhaps make some throw pillows
4. Maybe put a chair in the room, but unfortunately knowing us it will become a clothing rack. =(
