No Emotions. Just Sex.

I have to see this movie!!! Hilarious!!!

Favorite quote so far: "I'm emotionally unavailable. I'm emotionally damaged." And..."That sounds emotionally supportive...Lock that down!!!"

This will be the perfect date night movie!

It's done!

When I saw this tutorial that Emily did over at Jones Design Company I just had to do it!!! It was elegant, looked simple enough and was perfect timing since I was contemplating redoing the guest bathroom. To say it was a tedious project is an understatement. It took time and patience but overall it was completely worth it! And best of all it didn't cost me a dime!!!

Here are pictures of the guest bathroom before it was painted and stenciled. It was an ugly poopy green and somehow I was convinced that I had to do a color in there. Note to self: trust my instincts, I should have known better. It made the bathroom seem dark and small.
When deciding on the actual wall color I picked the one in the middle.
Not too dark and not too light.

Emily provided the stencil in her tutorial so I printed it out and traced it on cardboard as she instructed. I did one full stencil and then cut the second one in half (makes it much easier for doing the top of the wall).
You will have to check out her blog for the step by step tutorial. Trust me you will fall in love with her!!! It was all very simple but like I said very time consuming. It probably didn't help that I got really sick in between the process which set me back 2 weeks.

Here are the finished results:

I also sewed a new extra long shower curtain out of one of our old bedding duvets to make the room feel much taller. Such an easy project that anyone with a sewing machine can do!
This is an up close shot of the shower curtain print.

The corners had to be the hardest part but somehow I made it work.

The pictures don't really do it justice and for some reason the color looks really off on the camera but it is much brighter than it appears. The design provided exactly what I wanted it to for the guest bathroom. It made it feel much lighter, taller and overall much larger. I hope to add some navy blue accents such as towels, candle sticks and etc. but for now it will do. I just don't want to pick up another paintbrush for awhile!!!

Overall breakdown:
Tutorial - awesome and easy to follow...thank you Emily!!! $0
Stencil - made out of cardboard $0
Paint - left over from dresser in the front room $0
Shower curtain - old bedding duvet $0
The amazing feeling of all the hard work: priceless!


Decisions, decisions...

Thank you for all the sweet comments on the sneak peak yesterday. I promise to post more pictures about it tomorrow. But today I need a little personal help.

As many of you may already know I have major baby fever! The hubby and I have talked about it ALOT lately and one of the biggest concerns is whether I stay home or not when we have kids. It's a constant battle between the two of us. When it happens, what do we have to do, what sacrifices will we have to name it its been brought up.

So for the moms, moms-to-be, or even those thinking about kids, what helped you decide whether you stayed home or not? How did you make it work? What were some of your concerns? Please help me out! If you feel more comfortable commenting through email you can do so at All help is greatly appreciated!
