Pretty soon, in 2 weeks, I will be an official "Stay at Home Mom." I capitalize it because it is a job title. I pretend to think that Sofia is going to take all her naps and let mom clean and start some projects. I know it's not going to happen, but a girl can dream right? Well, I follow a girlfriend's blog who is sooo talented with her time at home, which gives me hope that I can do something good with my time, rather than sit and watch Oprah while eating bon bons. (p.s. anyone else so depressed it's her last season...yeah, right when I'm finally home to watch it!)

I look at Julia's blog and I am utterly amazed. I know I am talented in other ways, and I need to focus on that, but a girls gotta dream that one day she can be as talented in THIS way!

Check out a before and after...

Since I've been looking at her blog, I've looked around my house and asked myself "what could I take and make better?" Ummmm, a lot. So here is a picture of Sofia's little dresser. Maybe some cute knobs to add to it? (Did you notice the bottom knob broke off?? Oh wait, I cut that out of the picture on purpose. The knob is sitting there, on the top. See it?).

I feel that I am pretty good at decorating my very little home. I do what I can with what I have.  So here are some pictures to show off, and prove that I do have a little bit of talent...(btw, my house is so dark and has lots of brown, so I really want to bring out the blue this summer).

I'm thinking of adding blue toned pillows to my brown couch, and replacing my brown curtains with some other color. Julia, help?

Another talent...I am also really, really good at dressing my daughter. (But I can't sew a button).

HGTV...welcome Julia Miller.

  2. I really love the brown and blue look. And you actually reminded me that I need to screw back on a knob from Janen's dresser too! LOL! Good luck with your projects!

  3. 2 weeks yeah! you are almost there! can't wait for you to join the land of the "previously employee wifey," it's a GREAT life.
