Getting the wall done

Well, hello everyone! It's been a few weeks, and I apologize! We had an unexpected, life shattering, family emergency, and we're just now all getting back on our feet. Right before that though, Joey got some of the frames on the wall, and I have to say, it went NOTHING like I planned it to.

(I hate when that happens!!)

I'm not even sure if I like the arrangement, and I'm sure that it'll help once I get our pictures in the frames, right now I only have my pictures in two of the frames. I pretty much let Joey decide the arrangement of the frames, since he was the one actually putting them up, and my plan wasn't working. 

We were supposed to have new family pictures done a few weeks ago, but we had something come up so it didn't happen, and that's what I wanted to put on the gallery wall. I guess I'll just have to print some of our old family pictures, from like, two years ago ;)

But this is what we have so far!

And I thought it would be fun to show a picture of the dinning room from right before we bought it, so we have something to compare to. I didn't change any of the major stuff. We still have the original hard wood floors, and the paint colors that the previous owners had picked out -- I love!! So I haven't painted anything anywhere here (except for the one room she didn't do either. The Peach room.... ewwww) The chandelier is also original to the house (I LOOOOVE that), so no change there. It could probably could be stood to be dusted, but hey, you can't see it in the pictures, it doesn't count, right?? ;)

So what have I done?

She didn't have any curtains up in the dinning room, and Joey couldn't stand it, it was driving him crazy, said it was turning the room into a green house, with all those windows. The curtains are from JCPennys, and let me tell you they were not nice on the budget. But to get curtains in a long enough length for these ginormous windows, it cost. I'm happy with the ones I picked out, I'll get better pictures of them for a post tomorrow.

We got a new table for the room also. Which that was a very fun trip, going to buy the new table. It HAD to be done THAT day, because Joey had broke another chair just that morning -- it was just time for it. I could tell the long story of the shopping trip, but I wont. I got it from Pier 1, along with the two chairs and the two benches.  And it works wonderfully for our family, just as I hoped it would.

And now there's the gallery wall. I also have an antique wash stand in the room too.


And about our newest family member: we finally named him!! Please meet...

Captain Gusamus!

I do believe he's going to be the worlds most spoiled dog ever. He's getting along with the other two dogs, and Marley Cat actually likes him, which is a huge shock!

About Me

My photo
I have three kids:
Blythe Anne, 8
Jonah, 7
Peyton, 4

My husband and I have been married for 6 years, and I spend my days being a stay at home mom while he's a driller on a land rig. So for six months of the year (he works a week on, a week off), I'm raising these kids by myself. I would write more, but I hear children screaming :)
