Tidings

Hey all! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the well wishes and prayers for the twins! Pregnancy has amazed me and at the same time made me wonder where "I" have gone...I haven't felt like myself since week five but it's all good and great and completely worth it. We are just so blessed to have our 'two little souls' growing and changing, ready to take on the world together.

Also, sorry I haven't been good about my blogging. The buns in the oven have also taken away much of the motivation I once had and replaced it with lethargy, an immune system too busy to fight a bad, two month cold, and a working-overtime gag reflex. :) More than that though, we've been in Nebraska for the past two weeks visiting family for Christmas, and though it was incredible, my plans to blog from a distance were spoiled when I forgot to grab my camera cord...hence, the 'technical difficulties'. But we're back as of last night, in business, and playing a little catch-up this week.

This post is a dedication and showcase all in one. I owe all of my creativity and love for interior design and decor to my mom and my aunt. My mom could make the smallest room look huge and like it jumped straight out of a mag with a little imagination and sweat. My room growing up couldn't have been more than 10 by 10 feet but I had no less than 11 pieces of furniture in it that all fit perfectly and made it a room fit for a princess. I had a slight obsession with Minnie Mouse and my entire room was filled with her. I my early teens I decided I wanted a canopy over my bed but having a sloped ceiling, a traditional canopy wasn't a possibility. Mom came to the rescue though with some metal hooks and fishing string and gave me my canopy. I could go on and on but I'd bore you to death with good memories. My aunt, much like my mom, could be handed bobby pins and a vase and make an enviable centerpiece. She also taught me the importance and value of spray paint...a tip essential to my livelihood...well, not really but what would I do without it?

While we were in NE the past two weeks I stayed at my aunt's house for a week and got to revel in the eye candy otherwise known as her idea of decorating for Christmas.  That was what I was planning on sharing with you last week but obviously failed with so, since Christmas isn't yet over, here's the rain check back.


Aren't their stockings the cutest ever?  I have plans up my sleeve next year to make four of our own.  :)






Her centerpiece is different and so awesome every year.  The best part?  It's made with Christmas decor and other things she already has laying around the house.




Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
