A little something to help myself not feel so bad for 3 months of no blogging

The title to this post says it all.  I have been too busy for words and neglecting my blog for this long has been nagging me in the back of my mind so badly.  Sigh.

I haven't had time for any cool projects but I've had little things here and there I've added or changed in my home I could have blogged.  I'm going to get back to blogging more often, and doing fun projects!

One thing we've done recently is change up our living room.  I have always wanted a turquoise living room and finally made it happen.  A little spray paint, a few new throw pillows/accessories and a turquoise table made a HUGE difference.

Here's how our living room used to look:

Cute and cozy but the yellow and brown just wasn't doing it for me.

Here is my new tranquil & turquoise living room:

The picture in the middle is of Michael and I standing on a rock at Laguna Beach, before we got married.  It's been hanging on our stairway wall but I wanted to switch it up a bit.

I also made some changes to Cole's nursery. Again. 

I took our Ikea expedit book shelf from the office, flipped it over and am now using it for his toys.  It also looked cute up next to the square shelving unit from Ikea that I put some of his clothes in.  I also hung the blue paper lanterns from his birthday party, and the Ikea stuffed animal holder that was given to him by his uncle. It's perfect because this kid has like 2,000 stuffed animals. ;)  

The trend with nursery these days seems to be simplicity, neutral colors, & not a lot going on.  I think our kid's rooms should be pleasing to them since it's their room.... and kids like color, toys, and things to look at.   Especially for toddler age and up.  I have definitely accomplished that with his room as you can see!

For your viewing pleasure I have decided to conclude this
 blog post with an oh-so-adorable photo of my naked baby.

You're welcome, hehe...
