We have arrived.

Ok, so we arrived two weeks ago, but the point is that we are here! And couldn't be happier. Our new house is GI-NORMOUS. 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. The kids have the entire basement for a playroom, and the laundry room, is exactly that. A room! So as to the home improvement goals I had. I have accomplished quite a few of them. We packed, moved, UNPACKED! and I am almost done with the Princess' room. The plan had been to get a light lavender color for her walls. One night we were at Lowes looking for a new plug in for our dryer. And I remembered that a GREAT friend of ours had suggested we look at their Oops paint selection. Sometimes you can get a bucket of paint for $5. I went and had a look and there was a gallon of paint that was a lovely shade of purple. Not as light as my vision, but still a great shade. So we went for it. I finally got to painting yesterday afternoon, its dark enough that we decided to just do her entryway and one large wall. The rest we will leave white. Target has these great butterfly wall decals so I picked up some of those and placed them on her walls. The Land Of Nod had these FABULOUS butterflies you can hang from the ceiling, so I got the pink one and the purple one. They look so fun hanging over her bed.

As soon as I finish edging and one more coat I will take some pictures and post them.

For the boys room, I think I am just going to do a mural of construction vehicles. As for the rest of the house, I will update as decisions are made!
