Giddy Up Bedroom

Yesterday was a great day...celebrating our anniversary & hanging out with the kids!

Before I even had my coffee mug up to my lips, Miss O presented me with this & says "Happy Anniversary, Mom"...

yeah...that's my sweet girl! ;)

I got Sneaky E's dresser all filled up & looking all cute in his little cowboy bedroom...thought I would share a few pics of his room while it was all cleaned up! ;)

I went to Lowe's & picked up two more cap pulls for the drawer, since I realized that I had two that didn't match. I went upstairs to change them out & realized that I had BOUGHT THE WRONG, I have to take THOSE back & swap them out again...ARGH!!

Here's that little leather chair I's SO funny!!
The table was Big O' had been honey oak with white legs...the chairs died years ago. I used some leftover paint to give it a sprucing up. It looks great with this chair...almost like it's his "little office" back there in the nook!

Yes, the crib's still up...I'm in no race to get it down.
Sneaky E is his own man...he'll sleep in the big bed when he's ready.

Cowboy vinyl lettering. I can't remember where I found this, but I THINK I bought it on ebay from a seller there. I'm sure you can google the phrase & something will come up.

This is my FAVORITE piece in the whole room...
Big O dressed as a cowboy for Halloween when he was in kindergarten!
Melt my heart! ;)

I have been gathering bedding for this "new bed". I have no idea how old it granny found it at a yard sale & stripped it from the hideous sea foam green paint that was all over it (which there is still a little on the back so that you can appreciate her hard work). She got this for ME when I was Sneaky E's age. Big O slept in it for a spell, but when we moved for our Air Force obligations I left it behind in storage because I didn't want anything to happen to it. It's a special piece of furniture, I love that E is going to use it too! :)

This is my inspiration...I'm not ready to drop the "cowboy" theme yet...just easing out.

But, know I am INCREDIBLY cheap...and...Serena & Lily bedding is not!

so, I decided to go with this AWESOME quality denim comforter/sham that I found at Dillard's recently. I believe I paid $150 for the comforter, sham AND the euro pillow insert!

The blue star blanket is one we already had. The "e" pillow (which I LOVE) came from Serena & Lily bedding....BUT, I bought it from a different site....Layla Grayce. I found a coupon online (googled "layla grace coupon") and received 10% off & FREE, it was not so bad.

Then I ordered the red star sheets...oh, I LOVE these...but I couldn't believe I actually spent $100 on a set of TWIN sheets! While I was waiting on them to come in, I found these striped ones on ebay...used, but still in excellent condition for $30...needless to say, I sent the star sheets back. ;)

I'm happy with it for, it's staying pretty since no one is sleeping in that bed yet! LOL

I'm heading out to play with the kids for awhile....Big O has to get in around 3 & rest up for his 5:30 practice...whew, he was huffing & puffing last night...all that lounging on the couch this summer really paid off, eh? Silly boy!

Oh & I just found out that one of my dear pals is expecting this spring...makes my heart so happy!!! :)

Happy Tuesday!
