Kelly's Korner is hosting "Show us where you live" and today features master bedrooms. I thought I would play along this week since our bedroom is one of my favorite rooms in our little house.
So, come on in to our bedroom!
This is from the door, looking into our room.
I just changed out the bedspread yesterday too, thus another reason why I wanted to play along this week!
Believe it or not, this bedspread set came from my mom. She wanted me to sell it and I decided I'd keep it. I'm not too crazy about it, but I do like the change and it was "FREE.99" as I like to call it.
I doubt it can stay white/cream color for long with Ava's sippy cups and yogurt fingers!
Here is a closer pic of the bed and Aaron's side.
This is the picture that you see above our headboard. It was Ava at 11 months. I just love this picture!!
Another picture of Aaron's side and a view into our bathroom.
That glider was from when Ava was born and Aaron got to pick it out. It's leather and the color of our house for the most part. It went in our living room since it DID NOT match her room at all. Then, as toys started taking over, we moved the glider in here. Sometimes Aaron likes to escape back here and watch Survivor or The Apprentice in that chair.
Here is our dresser/mirror and hutch. On the left is our engagement picture and our wedding guests signed it. It's a keeper for sure.
On the dresser are pictures in glass/jeweled frames. I love those frames a ton and try to buy any I see that I just HAVE to HAVE when they are 50% off at Hobby Lobby.
This is our filing cabinet on that back wall as well (for lack of space in my house it goes here and it matches our furniture okay). I have some special keepsakes on this cabinet.
The candle is a memory candle and it burned on our wedding day as a tangent object to signify my dad's "presence" although he was absent. It reads, "In Loving Memory. This light shines as a symbol of a life and love remembered. Bob McCaslin"
He died when I was 15 and it was so hard for me to imagine him not walking me down the aisle. This candle meant so much, although it is just a candle. I hope to always have that candle. It had a fancy ribbon tied in the middle.
Guess who took that off and misplaced it?? The other is a photo album of Ava's birth. It doesn't match my room at all. It matches hers and I hope to one day put it in her room when I know she won't destroy it to shreds.
This is my side of bed. WE ARE ADDICTED to the humidifier's white noise. Can't sleep without it. And yes, it's an eyesore in that room. But I don't really care.
The picture up is of me in my wedding dress. I've heard that once you have children you should take all your wedding pictures down and replace them with family and chilren pics. But we plan to move soon anyway, and we only got married 4 years ago so we still have time in my eyes.
And I like to break the rules. If there really is such a rule. Has anyone else heard that before??
Thanks for taking a peak into our room! It was fun to share.
