(I AM pregnant with WADE in the picture!!)
My mom showed up for Decorator Prison... (For the 5th time in 6 years- ok, she DID do decorator prison in a few apartments too) and I am finally feeling like I live in my own home (we are renting). I can't believe what a difference decorations make and it is making me feel like a whole new person that actually has some cute stuff! I had been absolutely paralyzed with the inability to decorate since we have moved, so, I am grateful she is here! I think it is just the stress of moving and having done it so many times, it was all I could do to just unpack the stuff we use. Not to mention that I will have to do it again in 1-2 years because we are currently renting.
The funny thing is, I have had most of this stuff since we moved into our first house in Cheney, WA in 2002. My mom and I kept laughing as we would pull stuff out of boxes because we could remember when we first bought it... and for what price! I don't have tons of money to spend on decor, so I pride myself on buying timeless pieces that have great style and show up from house to house and still look great in the process. Now, don't look too closely.. some things are starting to show the wear of moving 5 (or more)times. (We have actually moved 8 times since we were married in 2000... You do the math.)
So, here is a little game... I am going to post a few pictures of our first house.. You look for items that are still with me in my current house..mkay? Good luck!
We are still working on it, so, stay tuned. I am going to give you a COMPLETE run down WITH pictures of my favorite NEW BARGAINS and favorite things I like to look at.
