Im Up To Something (s)

Before I go on and on about what I have been up to, here is a picture of my sweet Penelope being sweet. She is the sweetest when she is sleeping. Aren't all babies??? when she is up, she is crying unless in my arms gazing into my eyes. I love this girl. She is 2 months now. Time flies when you don't sleep and run around frantically. She had her 2 month check-up and was 9 lbs and 11 ounces. I could just eat her up!

This is what Penelope is getting for Christmas so far. She has a bunch of baby toys and dangly things that hangs from her carseat so no need for that. What really are necessities are pretty things for her hair. So Momma made sure her needs were met. ;)

Now, see this picture below?? See how plain it looks? I just added these pictures that say "Live laugh Love" on them but still have to add pictures and I am thinking of changing the ribbon on the bows. What do you think??
They still need something else though. So at Hobby Lobby yesterday I picked up...

These pretty initials. They will be spray painted black and put right above where we sleep. Cute huh? Please excuse the bed. Im keepin it real ya know? I wanted to spray paint them cherry red but my hubby and my kids thought I was crazy. They just don't understand my artistic talent and need for color. So, I lost that battle but little do they know Hobby Lobby will soon have RED heart plates out for Valentines day and I will be adding one to the middle of the wall between the J and the A. A girls gotta get some color somehow.

They would be painted already if Wal-mart would have gotten their act together and called me sooner for my order pick up. I waited and waited all day for their text message saying my order was in so I could pick up my Christmas cards and get them in the mail ASAP but of course it didn't come till 6 pm tonight while we were eating dinner... so it was a no go. First thing in the morning we will go... and will leave with our cards and a nice can of PRIMER for my letters. Which reminds me... I must make my list tonight.
I need to run thru Hobby Lobby and get my monogram stamp for my envelopes... and of course pick up a few other items. Did I tell you next year Im having 2 trees?? One is our nice one and I want to do a tacky one too. Pink, blue and green glitter balls, feathers, peacocks and all?? I CAN'T WAIT!
I plan on picking up the decorations when all the Christmas stuff goes on clearance.

Anyway, last night while hubby played his XBOX, my corkboard met my paintbrush. It was killing me that it was that blah wood color so I quickly applied a coat of black paint. I just need to add a clear gloss on it and it will be done and finished (and perhaps some red dots) I don't know what is wrong with me but I have a obsession with red lately??!! Cherry red!!!

I also bought this precious white flower trim that I need to attach to the little girls pink lamp upstairs. I will show that to you all when I am finished.

I have a million and 1 projects spinning around in my head right now. At least it will give me something to do during these cold winter months when we are forced to have dry skin and stay indoors right?

Santa is coming to our neighborhood tonight on the firetruck. My kids are STOKED! (and so am I) We are all ready to run outside and scream and yell at him. We can't wait!!!!


  1. Red is my favorite color. I am ALWAYS in the mood for red! Love your door by the way!!! :)


  2. You are an inspiration!!!! I love this kind of decorating! This self expression!!

    I used to do a lot of this. Then we put our kids in school...and it kind of killed something inside of me. But now, through homeschooling and finding your blog, I AM GETTING IT BACK!!!!

    Keep it up!!

    I love it!!

    I can't wait to see pictures!!!!

    YOU ROCK!!!

  3. I like color too!

    i have a primary red bathroom in my house with black and silver accessories.
