Celebrate the Small Things Blog Hop

I think the days go by faster every week because I cannot believe it's Friday already!

Today, I'm thankful we finished my teen daughters room. She decided to paint it and she picked out tan, sea foam green and red. Her bathroom is fire engine red and her room is green and tan with red accents. She's got owls everywhere!

It took us four days.

Now we are moving into my 4yo daughters room. She want pink and purple and red, Hmmm...

What about you beautiful guys and dolls? What are you so happy about this week? Please leave a comment!

    1. Yes I will. Thing is, I still have son's bedroom, kid's bathroom, kids living room, kitchen, family room, my bedroom and bathroom, and my office and the 1/2 bath. Wow.

  2. I'm with your 4 year old daughter with the pink and purple but I think I'd hold the red! It's great isn't it when they start having their own ideas. Happy painting :)

    1. I'm the same way. You can tell where we painted first. The first day or two we took our time and made sure there were no dribbles and splats. The last day or two, it got a little messier...

  4. My daughter has paint samples taped to her walls right now in preparation for a summer painting spree of her room. Right now she's torn between two shades of purple, or a super dark pink.

    My son could care less and left his paint sample cards in the cubby in the car door for the past two weeks. :)

    1. Pink and purple are always popular with girls, huh? And boys really don't care about the planning and process. But once it's finished, they love you for it!

  6. My girl is collecting, paint, pictures, rugs, etc., to re-do her room this summer, too. I only hope we can get it done in four days...

    1. It's so much work, it'll be nice to have everything ready once you start!

  7. Your daughters certainly know what they want, and that is a great thing! I love owls, btw, always have. They seem pensive and poised.

    We are also in the process of redoing our 4 year old's room. We're not repainting the room, but we did just buy her a new bed and bedding set. She checks the front door every day to see if her "new room" has arrived. It's cute.

    Enjoy the redecorating! Be well...

  8. Redecorating is so much fun! I'm not allowed to decorate my place as it is rented, although that does save some back ache. ;-)
    Happy painting! :-)

  10. It's great you're giving them those memories. I remember when my mom allowed us to paint our room - a rare allowance, and it remains my favorite room memory of sorts. :) Writer’s Mark
