PInk PInk and more PInk
Hi! Hope you had a great week! I think I can finally say we are settled in and we are starting to find our new normal. The last couple of weeks have been nuts with doctors appointments, reunions, back to school, and a few house repairs. I am still working on my decluttering house project. I honestly don't know how we have so much stuff because my house was never dirty and everything had a place, but the bags of trash and donations to the Goodwill would say otherwise. I have cleared out 20 bags of trash along with a few items too big for bags and not worthy of donating and I have taken 28 bags of clothes, books, and toys to the Goodwill. My son Harris was home for a day this week before heading off to college and we cleared out his room and when all was said and done we only put three small boxes in the storage room. I just need to tackle our storage room, and now that we have my moms stuff out of the house, it should be a lot easier. Come Monday, the carpet layers come and put new carpet in our TV room. I am so excited as the carpet we chose is so beautiful and super soft on the feet. Now I just need to find a painter to come and paint the inside of the house. My whole house is beige, but this time I am going to add some color. I just need to choose the right shades of blue. Wish me good luck! Choosing paint colors is so hard for me because since I don't actually do the painting myself it is such a financial commitment and I get so nervous about whether or not I am making the right choice-seriously first world problems. Well, now on to the title of this post. Last weekend my mom treated the little girls to a night stay at the Mariott Hotel in their American Girl Suite. American Girl is a big doll brand here in the United States and the dolls come with stories that either represents a time in history or for example their newest doll likes all things to do with outer space. Anyway, the stay including rooms decked out all in pink, a movie with popcorn, swimming, a special treat, and beds for their dolls. The girls were in heaven. Here are a few pictures from that night. I should note that Avery's Birthday is coming up next month, so this was her birthday present. Her birthday falls a few days before fall break so we won't be in town for her special day.
