My Soccer Star!

This is Bella's (the littlest dotter) last soccer practice today and her last game is Wednesday. We have come a long way! First practice and game she was in tears most of the time refusing to go out and play. Now she is scoring goals and having fun.

There is nothing more entertaining than watching 4 and 5 year olds play soccer!

House Part II-Bronwyn's Room

So, I'm still trying to play catch-up with some summer stuff, so please just bear with me! With our move I let the girls re-do their rooms, but I definitely had a pretty tight budget. I was able to work with some things I had, and bought a few things.

So Bronwyn is pretty obsessed with Paris right now, and talks about going there all the time.(It doesn't help that one of her good friends spent a week there this summer.) I have been twice and it really is a beautiful and magical city. Until Bronwyn and I can get there to visit we tried to bring some of the Paris magic to her room. So I present Bronwyn's Paris themed room:

Sorry not the best pic, but I wanted you to see the gorgeous antique love seat I picked up for her room. When I saw it, I had to have it.

Found some cute accessories, and a vinyl Eiffel Tower. I also made the chandelier.
Her beloved vintage sock monkey collection on a nice black shelf. Now they can be all together.
Some more fun accessories.
Couldn't resist the hot pink Eiffel Tower.
Found this reproduction vintage map of Paris.

So the room was a success! I spent maybe $100 on accessories and maybe $50 in pink and black paint. She loves her room and that makes me happy!
