Decorating...a little at a time


I love love love to decorate the house...I don't love love love the amount of money it takes. We moved in our home almost 2 years ago and when we moved in we had purchased new furniture for every room except Noah's bedroom (it was already new) so alot of the extras (decor stuff) had to wait! I have slowly but surely been furnishing one room at a time and I have not let myself get in any hurry.

In the past I would be in a hurry to finish a room and I would buy stuff that I didn't love and in a month I would be tired of it. Several of the rooms in the house are coming right along and I am almost satisfied with them.

Except the dining room, I love my dining room table and china cabinet, (black with dark wood top) but it is seldom used (Noah actually calls it the thanksgiving room...because that's the only time we use it). Don't get me wrong, we eat meals every day together as a family but we always sit at the kitchen table. However, I decided recently it was time to hang some wall decor in the dining room. And what better thing to decorate my walls than portraits of my beautiful babies??? So the above photo is what will soon be hanging on my wall in a 24x36 gold frame. What do you think? I will post photos of the room when it is all done, but I wanted you to see my sweet babies first!!!

I love it!! But don't get too attached - once I convince you to go for a third, you'll need a new picture : )

I can't take the pressure...Can I just hold Ellie Claire whenever I want? (OK but when Elliott gets here you know I'm gonna miss a sweet baby boy...)

LOVE IT!!!! And, you can hold Elliott anytime! :-) But, I think you should go ahead and go for the third!
