Family Room Inspiration

Back in April, I finally signed up for Polyvore. I'm really enjoying it. And wondering why I didn't try it sooner. But I guess, it just takes me a while to warm up to these things.

One of the things I'm enjoying most, is the "Home Boards." So much inspiration! Mark and I have been wanting to "update" our "Family Room" for a while now. Something that is fun, full of color, inviting, and comfortable.

I've searched, downloaded pictures, and dreamt of so many things. But when I saw this picture, I was sold. And when I showed it to Mark, he was pretty excited too. Just look at it!

Our floors are already a nice dark wood. Something that we love. And don't want to change. I personally think, my husband is in love with this deep brown color. It reminds me a lot of Lola's Living Room. Especially with the white wood details.

This picture just inspires me, to get moving. This weekend, we're going to look at some furniture. And Lola, promised to help me with this project! In fact, she's already found us a rug, curtains, fabric for pillows, and some decorative touches. Oh, I can't wait! A

Just What She Needs!!

Life is getting a little less hectic. We seem to be in a good rhythm right now. I think, we're all on the same schedule. Tough to get 5 souls, on 1 schedule!! But somehow we did it. And now, we have a little more time, to work on fun things. Like crocheting!!

Elena and I, were searching for some patterns. Preferably, for food toys. She's been so excited, about "cooking" us food. Her kitchenette, was the best things we could have bought! My sweet girl, spends hours and hours, playing with it! :)

We found this pattern. And it was a score!! To us, they look like chicken fajitas!! Yum!! And Elena was just so happy about them. Hopefully I'll get some time, to start crocheting. This weekend. I know one little girl, who would welcome that! A
