It's Monday. It's cloudy. Sawyer was up all night with a cough. We had plans to play with friends and then I was going to take the kids to see Gnomeo & Juliet since there is no school, but my husband Chris still had to work. With Sawyer's cough, I decided it was best to just stay home since my girlfriend has a baby, and I also didn't want to drive everyone nuts at the movie theater with a constantly coughing child. So Sawyer, Emmy, and I spent the morning in Sawyers room, where they drew pictures for Gramma and made her some puppets, too. After all, it's her birthday tomorrow, and what woman doesn't want puppets for her birthday? And thank you so much for all your kind thoughts and prayers. My mom (aka Gramma) got a migraine in the middle of the night Saturday which pretty much confirmed the doctor's thoughts. She is headed for a check up today, but we're pretty sure the whole episode was migraine related.
So pretty non-exciting morning here, but I have some beautiful pictures to share with you that a reader, Jen, shared. She blogs at Little Miss Penny Wenny and needs your votes to win a contest from Ivory Homes. All you have to do is CLICK HERE and like Ivory homes on facebook, and then like Jen's entry, which is number 5 in the "Ivory loves your style" album. Easy as that. Jen completed her bedroom transformation in just 5 days and did so mcuh work herself- adding molding, painting furniture, upholstering a chair, and SO MUCH MORE! She is going to be up against interior designers in this contest, but her hope is to show that you don't have to be an interior designer, nor do you have to have a large budget. Her bedroom was completed for a total cost of.... wait for it.... wait for it.....$539!!! yes, you read right- that is not a typo. Juist in case you don't believe me I will spell it out. FIVE HUNDRED and THIRTY-NINE DOLLARS. Amazing. Just see for yourself... How bout some eye candy?
I am drooling over those nightstands!!!
Pretty amazing, right? If you agree, please go vote for Jen! I am in no way being compensated for this post, but when I saw Jen's pictures I had to not only vote for her, but share with you and hope you will go do the same! Thanks for sharing Jen.... awesome work, and I wish you the best of luck!!!
