Little Mermaid Bedroom Makeover

During our last winter storm we decided it was time to give our girls a bedroom makeover. Their room has been a plain white since we moved in last year and we were just waiting for the girls to decide on a theme. It's probably better that we waited because they were huge fans of pink and purple until recently when their favorite list of colors expanded to include teal. When we asked them what colors they wanted to go with they said teal and purple, and my dream was born!

DIY Baby Shower Decor (Upcycle) Baby Sprinkle

There is nothing more incredible than the birth of a child. It changes everything about your life and you become someone you said you would never be (you know it's true). You are more concerned about germs, leaving your little one behind is the hardest thing in the world, and keeping your baby alive and healthy is your number one priority. Fast forward a few years or months (if you're me) and you now have not one bundle of joy, but two. This time the experience, the emotions, and the way you handle life are entirely different. You aren't worried about germs; you're too busy trying to remember if you brought spare clothes in case you get pooped on again. As a second-time mom, you realize just how out of control your life really is. Now you're ready to chillax and take things as they come, not that you have a choice; it's just the only way to stay sane.
If you have a friend or family member, that has already had one child and, of course, a huge baby shower you may want to consider baby sprinkles! Baby sprinkles celebrate moms who are having their second (third, or more!) little blessing-and are a little wiser, a little savvier, and a bit more comfortable being laid back about it!
With that in mind, I would like to share a few Easy DIY Baby Shower Decor ideas that will please your second time around (or more) mommy friend, and leave your first time mom squirting hand sanitizer on everything at the party! Today we are upcycling some stuff we had lying around the house, but you can also easily find these items at a thrift store. Even though the guest of honor is pretty chill now we still highly recommend washing everything you use multiple times. Just because we roll with the punches doesn't mean we want anyone to end up in the ER.

Boys Pokemon Bedroom Paint Job

My son John loves Pokemon, and while I wasn't crazy about painting his room red and black, I had to admit having a Poke Ball for a room did sound pretty cool.
