SLEEP AT LAST!!!!!

BEFORE.....

AFTER...






So we conquered the task of remodeling our bedroom! Woohoo!!!!! It looks awesome and I can't believe we did it all in 2 1/2 days. So here is the story to go with it. While we were remodeling we obviously couldn't sleep in there so Mike slept on the couch and I slept in the extra bed in Zoe's room. It was pretty ridiculous because I would sneak in after she went to sleep everytime so she wouldn't know I was there and this is why. I was so exhausted at this point from all the remodeling late nights that in the middle of the night Zoe woke up several times (as usual) and instead of me trying to get her back to sleep I shushed her. It went a little something like this: Zoe "ahhhhhhhhh mommy mommy ahhhhhhh", Me "shhhhhhhhhhh" , Zoe "ahhhhhhhh mommy mommy ahhhhhhhhhhh" , Me "shhhhhhhhhhhhhh" (thats where it all went wrong), Zoe "Get out mommy! Get out right now mommy! Get out!" I finally left and hung out in the kitchen in the dark at 4 in the morning for thirty minutes until she went back to sleep! AHHHHH! Well luckily I am back in my bed and the universe is once again at peace! Here are the pics of our room let me know what you think!

I wish I had the motivation right now to remodel our room. It's funny because the ideas I've had are very similar to your finished product. I love it! I had to read the story about Zoe to Jeff, because it completely sounds like something our daughter would do. HAHAHA! Thanks for the funny story. At least, someday, you can look back at it and laugh.

Looks really great!! I am so awesome I was looking at the pictures wondering why you changed the bedding to something different. I eventually figured it out...day vs. night. It's like dad would say, "I may not be quick but I am slow."

Wow that looks like it should be in BetterHomes and Gardens. Way to go you guys.

By the way I love the ones of Isa asleep in her crib. I always love seeing how my kids fell asleep for the night.
