June around our house is full of Celebrations. Both of my children are June babies and my anniversary is in June. Today to be exact – Happy Anniversary Dan!!!!! 13 years of bliss. If you count the years that we have been together we are at 19 – more than half my life. Yes, we are high school sweethearts and I couldn't imagine my life with anyone else!
A few years ago, my daughter (who hates pink and had a pink room) said, " When I turn 10 I want to re-do my room!" Since it was a few years off I said "OK". Well the few years went by and she turned 10 a few weeks ago. She never forgot about the room so it was time for the big re-do. She loves red so that was an easy decision for color choice. We started by taking off every little bit of pink on her bed and replaced it with this –
Of course I need to do a few more finishing touches like adding a bulletin board and shelf for her trophies and ribbons. I know what I want to do I just need a little help from my husband so I am not sure when it is going to get done. I may just have to tackle the project myself!
and then I need to finish the picture area - this area needs a little help but I will get to it!
All in all everyone was happy with the room. EVERYONE BUT –
I think they turned out great and he loved them too! Now for the walls – I had seen the American Flag made out of baseballs at Red Robin and I thought that would be perfect for his room. I counted to see how many balls were in the picture and there was over 200. That number didn't shock me until I started looking for used baseballs to make the picture out of and calculated how much that was going to cost me. The number of baseballs that I was going to use for his room instantly shrunk! I purchased some baseballs on eBay which was the first time I had ever purchased anything on there. I have to admit using eBay was A LOT of fun – maybe too much fun for me! I just received the baseballs this weekend
Now I have another project to complete – Wish me luck! I will post a picture of it when I finish (hopefully it will be done by his next birthday!!)
