April 15, 2007



The room looks GREAT!!! I love it very much and I'm sure Ariel is so happy her Mom gave her such a huge surprise. She's a very lucky girl.

So, why no date night pictures, k?


How FABULOUS! I love the pinks together, great choice! And I love how you didn't tell her you were doing it. That is something I will do one day for my girls. It's such a great suprise!

Oh, and I'm proud of you that you did not go to Walmart on your date night!


Holy Moses! So you disassembled, painted, and reassembled in one day?? EGADS! I've never heard of such a thing. Good for you!!

I'm glad you liked the movie. I would see it, but the trailers make me want to (ahem) laugh every time I see Adam Sandler's hair...do you think I'll be able to get past that once the movie starts?

You're putting the rest of us to shame! Date night? Movie? Margaritas? Room renovation? Quality time with Sis? ALL.IN.ONE.WEEKEND.

The room looks great!!! And I know what you mean about taking down the baby stuff. We just gave away Youngest's crib mobile and "Shh...Baby Sleeping" door hanging and it was tough.

So happy Ariel's pretty in pink :)


That looks great! My little princess has a pink room too. You were ambitious!

I love those pinks together! That's one of the projects we're gonna have to tackle one of these days. We may have to call you and your sister to help!:)


How sweet and oh-so-pink!! I love that she loves it!! :) I would have passed on the .49 garlic bread....wtf?!?! Seriously.

Waitresses just "love" when you ask the prices of alcoholic drinks...I should know, I do it all the time as well.

Where did you go that they charge 49 cents for garlic bread with a pasta dish? Crazy.

I'll have to see this movie when it comes out on video. I have heard good things about it from others, too..but especially that it's a tear jerker!

Ariel's room looks great, I'm so impressed. You don't mess around, girl.

Beth F.

Thea, I really could not get passed the hair, I did continue to think about his resemblance to Bob Dillon throughout the movie, but that's how good the movie is...it just did not matter.

Amy, TGIFriday's charges for their garlic bread. (it WAS good, but so is a box of Texas Toast for $1.78)


Amy A

Wow! The room looks just as good in pictures as it does in person. Wonderful! Thanks for the fun time! (and all the coffee) Good job on your date night, now you just have to make sure to keep it up!

Tracy F

LOVE. IT. Great job Beth!!! You paint the way I do. Rip it apart, paint, reassemble in one day!! The 2 colors came out great!!

Glad you had a good date night! I want to see that movie, but I am afraid it will bring up so many memories of "that" day.


I was smiling and nodding along with your post until I got to the last paragraph...*sniff, sniff* Didn't even think about the "mommy crisis" of painting over nursery walls. I've been thinking about "upgrading" Flicka's room and never thought about the effect of "covering up" her nursery history. *sigh* Another ever-so-small-apron-string to break. *wink*

So glad that it was such a good time tho! LOL


You and your sister are not a force to be reckoned with! I am impressed at what you got done in a day. The pictures look so girly and so Ariel. I would have loved to see the look on her face, I am sure it was priceless.

And good for you and Brian getting out of the house on a date. It sounded like a fun evening. I must plan one of those too! Thanks for the reminder.


It looks fantastic. Makes me sad that I will never have a pink room in my house.

Angel Mama

Wow it looks beautiful. You got so much accomplished this weekend. You are an inspiration on top of all you are doing for the fund raiser. Thanks.

Just wanted to pop in and say I love your blog.

Cuuuute! I haven't painted my girls' room yet, but I want to. Probably yellow & green with pink thrown in somewhere. Who knows?


OMG! I cannot believe that this is the first time I've read your blog! I am hooked! The pink bedroom looks awesome...Ariel is a very lucky girl! Love you guys!

Jenn B

What a great weekend! Ariel's pink room looks fabulous!!! I bet it felt good to get the project done all at once! And the extra cleaning too. Tell your sister she rocks! ;)


It sounds like you had a really good time and you have been busy! Glad I found your blog!!

If you are interested, Amy's Random Thoughts is having a blogging Scavenger Hunt starting May 1st..A good time will be had by all..


Ok, I think we are a LOT alike. I pretty much visit Walmart every single day. And I love the room - it is soo pretty. Can you guys come over and help me with mine??
