My Baby Sisters

February 15, 2012

Well, not my baby sisters, but my babies that are sisters. I love having little sisters. They are so great together and get along so well (most of the time). I really just love sitting and watching them play. Ky is such a great big sister and talks to Em is the cutest little baby voice when she asks her if she needs anything. Emily follows Ky around the house and wants to do everything just like her big sister. And she always wants to make sure that if she gets something, like a snack, that "Ty Ty" gets the same. If Kylie puts on a dress and wants to dance to her princess music, then Emily stands at the top of the stairs and yells "dress" until I go up and get her one so she can dance too. They love to play "restaurant" and Emily always orders french fries. And they love to cuddle, or as Emily says "cuwwle, Ty Ty."  They even try to convince us to let them sleep in the same bed at bedtime.

We bought this book for our little sisters before Emily was born, and before we knew she would be a little redhead. It's one of my favorite books of theirs and so perfectly describes their relationship already, and the fact that the big sis is blonde and the little is a redhead makes it even better. 

I'm so glad we have little sisters. Sisters hold a very special place in my heart, and I am so glad they have each other too :)


Home Sweet Home

February 7, 2012

I was asked to teach a little interior design class for the MBA spouses association. I am by no means an expert at all and I totally laughed at the idea of teaching a class, but I do love to paint furniture and make my own DIY stuff so I found a few things to talk about :) Plus, I was finally forced to take a few pictures of our new (if we can even still call it that) house. So here are a few from my little presentation and a little tiny glimpse into our house. (I'd like to say pictures of the rest of the place are coming soon, but let's just be honest, that's probably not going to happen, so just pay attention to the backgrounds of our photos if you are really that interested in seeing it all.)

The living room with my favorite painted blue dresser/tv stand/toy chest, my favorite pictures of my girlies, and all of my other favorite things:

The master bedroom with painted furniture, diy curtains (don’t mind the little tip at the bottom – I copied this straight from the powerpoint), and cool and soothing neutrals:

The whole message of my little class was based on this idea, and it is completely the way I decorate my own house :)
