Ruby is the winner of the 2012 Modern Madness! Wait, what?? I can't believe it either! Thank you so much to everyone who voted for Ruby, we are just so thrilled. Such an honor!
Sorry this is maybe my shortest post ever, but I can only type with one hand, as I've got a croupy one year old in my arms. We are doing everything possible to keep him happy and (fingers crossed) out of the hospital, the poor thing. We've had a solid two weeks of sick kids over here and are ready to get feeling better! If I have to watch Toy Story one more time...
Oh, and just a heads up... new fabic should be here soon! I'll let you know as soon as it arrives. Can't wait!! Maybe my some miracle my sewing room will be all put together, boxes will all be unpacked (ha!) and there won't be any more sick kids (or mom) around here when it comes. A girl can dream, right?
One more thing... thanks for all the comments on the new to us house. You sure know how to make me (and the husband) smile. Really, thanks. I'll do my best to answer your questions in future house posts. Promise.
Better get back to sick baby duty. It's going to be a loooong night.
Okay, these are in progress photos, not after photos. (I feel like I've said that before?) After I've hung some stuff on the walls, installed hardware, fluffed pillows, made children get dressed, etc. I will post a few more. And since it is just so much better with before photos, I'll put a few of those in here too.
The old photos were taken the day we got keys (about 6 weeks ago), and the new photos were all taken yesterday afternoon. It was the first day of spring break (note the kids in PJs) and lets be honest, the house will get progressively messier each day, so I grabbed my camera and took a few photos. Mostly of the downstairs, because the upstairs in not this clean. :-)
Prepare yourselves, a whole lot of photos ahead. Also, I've been fighting with typepad all morning and it just won't cooperate on picture size. Sorry they are all different.
Little different, huh? Still need hardware on the cabinets, but we are working on it.
(Since I know you are dying for a closeup of the fruit over the stovetop)
(Need your opinion. Leave this pony wall blue or paint it white? We have different opinions over here.)
(Still need to arrange the stuff on the shelf. Oops.)

Okay, just two more things, because I have rambled on long enough only my mother could make it through (hi mom!). I got this growth chart a while back on Etsy and finally hung it. Yesterday I measured the boys and marked it. This morning they both came tearing into my room yelling "We grew, we grew!!" According to them, they both grew one whole line last night. :-) It is a very exciting day over here.
Also, it is now my favorite thing in the house.
And the reason I'm not showing you my sewing room yet...
Because it currently looks like this. Hoping to dig out tonight.
Feel free to head on over. Bring treats. It's been a looooong road. We need treats.
Quick note to the husband- Thanks. For working your guts out, for not getting overwhelmed, for putting up with my emotional breakdowns, and for seeing potential in this house when I couldn't. And again for working your guts out. Love you.
