Lily's New Room...almost complete

 We have also been working on fixing up the guest bedroom for Lily.  So, she chose her paint colors- sassy violet and summer splash blue.  All three of us painted the room together which was a blast!
 Then, Lily and I painted an old gold mirror.  Lily wants her room to look sassy and shabby chic!  Yes, she is seven going on 37.
 She chose her comforter and pillows which she mixed and matched herself from the sale stuff at Pottery Barn.  I was impressed with her color choices.  We also did some bargain shopping on for a shabby chic side table, a pink tv table, and a folding shelf for her stuff.
We are still waiting on her new bed to arrive...but it will be here on Tuesday.  She chose the summer splash blue color to be her focus wall in her room.  She also has chosen some really cool peace and flower decals that we will be adding to her walls after very careful thought and deliberation.

Fixing up her "big girl" room has been so much fun!  Shopping with my little, big girl has been a dream for me.  She has such an eye for what she likes and what looks good together.  I will post more pictures when the room is complete with artwork, etc.  It may take a couple of weeks for it to come together to her liking- and honestly, I just love that about her!

My Two Loves

I am so blessed that God me a wonderful husband who is my best friend and a kind, beautiful daughter!

Lily's Newest Love

You probably can't see her, but she is over on the left-hand side of this enormous gym stretching before her beam and uneven bars practice.  Lily has started gymnastics this summer, and she is amazing!  I am shocked by what she has learned in just two weeks.  She picks up everything quite quickly, and then of course, she is practice-practice-practice at home.  She loves it!  So, like all things she loves- she commits herself to it completely.  I will try to get better pictures in the future, but I am just mesmerized by her during practice.  So, I have a hard time taking photos- afraid I will miss something that she does.  She is truly a remarkable little young lady!

Miss Artistic

 This summer, Lily has been working on many art projects, along with other little hobbies that she enjoys.
 We have also been working on decorating the stage again at church...we have a Pirate-theme this summer!
