1. There's paint on Bumblebee's walls:
I can't exactly take credit for the 'doing' of this, but I closely supervised J as he did it. As nervous as I was about covering her walls with such a bold color, being a 'shades of beige' type for the most part, I'm LOVING it. And I think I'll love it even more when all the pieces come together. This is the most thought I've ever put into a wall color, buying four sample cans from Home Depot before finding one that struck the right balance of soothing baby retreat and dramatic girly glamour.
2. Our master bedroom, for the first time in our married lives, actually looks like a grown up bedroom and not a dumping ground for used and abused furniture/storage room/laundry collection site. There's a new mattress, new furniture, new bedding, new decor. The only downside? It's nearly impossible to peel ourselves out of the too-comfy bed in the morning, though A does his best to hurry that along with his persuasive "DA! DA! DA! DA! GAAAAAAAA!" shrieks from the next room.
