One of the things I love about having a blog is learning that some of my oddities aren't really that odd at all. As sad as it sounds, reading your comments/emails about your own fear of needles made me feel so much better. Thank you! And to those of you who give blood for fun, props to you too. :)
I'm excited to have another "room reveal" in the next few days. Our bedroom is 95% complete (don't tell Michael--he thinks we're done). I'll take a few pictures and post them sometime this week. The living room sneak peek was the pillow so I figured I'd do something similar with this room as well. Cari, a good friend of mine, took some absolutely gorgeous pictures while she was out and about in Portland, Oregon. Almost all of our rooms have pictures of nature (hello Peter Lik), so when I saw her pictures on Facebook I lit up. She graciously let me use her works of art and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. So without further adieu, our bedroom sneak peek:
Aren't they gorgeous?! Thank you, Cari!
We've also been hard at work outside. I planted flowers for the first time in my life and decided I want to include "professional gardener" in our 2011 budget. It is hard work! But I must admit, it feels good and the instant gratification is awesome. Michael did all of the hard stuff so that helped too. :) I forgot to take "before pictures" but I'm not sure I'd show you even if we had some--absolutely terrible. We have a long way to go but so far so good.
That's it for now. Hope you all have a great week!
