My New Room

The stomach bug came for a visit on Monday, so I spent lots of time in this bed the last 2 days. I won't show you where else I spent some time. I bet you can guess.
We are all settled in our new room. I still have lots of tweaking to do, but it's almost there.

I LOVE the wood floors Marcus put in, with the help of my dad. I actually helped stain those puppies. And I was sore for about 2 days. So sad.

The trunk at the foot of the bed holds our comforters. We don't sleep with the one on the bed. Marcus likes to wrap up like a burrito, so we have to have 2 separate comforters. It's the secret to our 12 years of marriage. So I have 2 really soft comfortable ones, that totally don't match the room. I like that they can be stored in the trunk when I make the bed.

I added a cute flower pin to my throw pillow. It was only $6 at the Sample House. I don't know if those are everywhere or just local. I know that Hobby Lobby has cute flower pins too.

Here's what the room looked like when it was guest roomish and carpety:

My mom helped me A TON last week when we made the switcheroo. She moved my entire closet, and helped me get everything organized. She took Katie on walks and played with her while I worked on the house. It's nice to have family close, especially when your family is nice. Thanks mom!

I need a lamp on the left side (Marcus and I don't have sides, we switch back and forth, because we're crazy like that) of the bed and maybe a small dresser there too, because right now my underwear is in the dining room. No kidding!

Here's the dresser in the dining room. Don't go digging through there for a napkin, because you might be surprised!

Today while I was getting my hair cut and freshly painted, Marcus must have had a photo shoot with Katie and the dogs:

Katie's working on some teeth right now, so her hands are constantly in her mouth.
I think she just told Cash, "Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet!"

Cash and Blue frolicking in the yard:

I am ready to go crawl in my comfy bed with my, unmatching comforter, next to my burrito husband!

That room is a million times more awesome than anything I've pinned for inspiration on Pinterest. Just sayin'! I would totally sleep there. Great job!

I think I may have exposed my family to the tummy bug through reading your blog:( I am the only one in this family NOT to get it...let's pray I don't! Hope you are fully recovered:) What a yucky~time:(

This room is GREAT! I love that y'all switch sides of the bed. Of course you do! That's fun and crazy. :)

Also, yes, get a dresser for the bedside. You deserve to have your underwear in your room. For one thing, my little guy recently locked our bedroom door twice! one morning while I was getting ready. One of the times was straight out of the shower and he was in the room and I was out and I was *sure* hoping I could get it open and not have to call the fire dept. with no clothes on (course if you called the fire dept. I guess you get your husband so that is a different matter) Anyway, I just think it's safer to have your underwear in your room and all. :)

Also, am so glad to see your pictures from Hall's. I soo missed going this year. Kelly

p.s. pretty sure Samplehouse is just local. Would LOVE to have one here though! :) Kelly

I thought my husband was the only one who wraps up like a burrito! It makes making the bed a real chore. I never thought about getting a chest to store his blanket. Great idea!
