And the green grass grew all around, all aroud . . .

So the title had nothing to do with this post, but OMG I see grass peeking through the brown ground! Spring is a-coming! With all the other excitement this week, I forgot to tell you about my adventure in home improvement this week. . .

On Friday, Robert and I took advantage of our special needs ministry's mom and dad's night out. What oh what would a fun-loving, adventurous couple do on a free night? Go to the fabulous sushi buffet and to the mart of walls. Excitement? Not so much.

Anyhoo, at the Mart I found a Hannah Montana quilt on clearance for $13! I bought it and the sham and planned on putting it back for McCartney for Christmas. The girl loves anything with Miley's face gracing it. We have joked that they will attempt to sell ANYTHING with Hannah Montana emblazoned upon it, even poop on a stick.

Hannah Montana Poop on a stick! Bwahahaha.

Well, Saturday I decided to take the bed upstairs that Robert had used while he was immobile. (He is getting better by the day! Yay!) I briefly thought about returning it the attic then I got a brilliant streak. . . I'll make the playroom McCartney's room! You see, right now, she and Harrison share a room and they drive us nuts at bedtime.

I really should've thought about all the work that would be involved. I spent most of the weekend, sorting toys into boys and girls piles, sorting stuffed animals into his and hers piles, moving furniture, splitting dressers, cleaning, and painting, rearranging closets . . .

Yes, we opted to "paint the mother pink". (Obscure MTV reference, anyone? Anyone?)

Now I am the proud mother to a little girl who has a room the color of Pepto-Bismol. She has one of those mosquito net things over her bed, stuffed animals galore, and a little table to play with her tea set or to color on. It is fabulously yummy and I gave her the Hannah Montana bed set. She was THRILLED! My mom is in Florida (you suck mom!) and she informed me today she bought a HM wall mirror, lamp and wall clock also. She will be in Disney heaven!

The best part? If you don't count the $13 bed spread, I spent $20 in paint. That is it! Yay me!


The look on my baby girls face in her froo-froo girly room? Priceless!

You deserve the Best Mom award for that! What a great idea. Hopefully this will create some peace at night.

The room is, as my kids would say, wicked awesome.

Also, as much as I would love to meet you and the crew, it will have to happen outside of Indiana because me and that state do NOT get along. I mean, as a crazy ass liberal, how can you live there? LOL Maybe your awesome psychiatrist could meet us at the Illinois or Michigan border...
