Before and Afters.....

All right, I know you've all been waiting for my spring decor, but I've been discouraged to say the least. Color schemes, accessories, you name it, I can't find what I want! Oh well. I was able to fix a few things. I was able to change some curtains and pillows. I really want a new throw for my bed but, I just can't find the right stuff! I used a plastic friendly spray paint for the lamps. It should be an outside spray paint (for patio furniture) because it doesn't need priming! before
After
Before After Enough of those before and afters, let's get to London. The girl wanted her ears pierced. Yes, I did ask her all of the time, but truthfully it was just to get a rise out of my parents and Tyler. He decided pointedly that he didn't care if she got them done. My cousin's little girl got her's pierced and London became a walking tape recorder. "Can I get my ears pierced with a necklace and a new dress?" This became her daily begging statement. We told her if she'd be a good girl we'd see by Friday. Friday came and she was sooooo excited. I was way apprehensive. But, what do you know?! She didn't even cry and it was so easy! After the ear piercing, she promised to take a nap. London has this strange way of giving me affection. Besides the hugs and kisses, she rubs her hands over my cheeks. When she was doing this after her nap, I looked down at her pants and thought, "That doesn't look right." Tyler and I were laughing so hard and she didn't even know what was wrong. She just kept petting my cheeks! That night Mandy, Trent, and my parents came over and London couldn't wait to show them her ears. Of course, my mother was disappointed in me, but who the heck cares! She loves them! It was fun to see Mandy and Trent. Luckily, the boys were on the same schedule and entertained each other. Tyler's mom is in town so hopefully, I'll get some good pictures on that side of the family. London loves her grandparents! In fact, she took those wonderful stickers that grandma gave her and put them all over her body, the coffee table, and the carpet. Isn't that showing the love? The kid kills me....in almost every sense of the word. Madden is still our happy boy. Daddy clearly takes videos without me knowing....
