Mud room

We recently moved our laundry room, added a fourth bedroom and turned our old laundry room into a hallway/mud room/computer area.  Although it is very multifunctional I would like for it to be a true mudroom one day.  I could then turn our guest bedroom closet into a computer and work area.  this is ideally what I want it to look like. These photos are from  The top picture is my multifunctional room now.  I can just breathe in all the organization from the other pics!

Bhg.comI could see my little ranch being so bright and colorful! I love all the color.  Not so sure my husband would like!
I am not sure if it is that Spring is here or what, but I feel like getting rid of all the neutral in my home.  For the first time ever, I am ready for color, color, color and more color!  Maybe it is since my floors are so dark now.  I am not sure, but forever reason, I am ready for color!  It could be that for years I have been afraid of taking chances.  I painted my whole kitchen wall over a year ago with chalkboard paint.  Everyone thought I was crazy and wouldnt  you know, everyone is now using chalkboard paint everywhere!  I love blues!  I always hated my Mom's blue everything, and now I finally agree.  Dont you just hate it the older you get, the more you become your mother in ways!  I promised my husband to take a break from house projects, so I will.  Hopefully when school is out and I am not working 60 hours a week, I can paint again!

Saturday fun!

This morning was so pleasant to be home with Chloe and all our dogs!  The boys were at batting practice so I did a little cleaning and a little searching for ideas for my good friend Heba's kitchen.  She is wanting to paint her cabinets and cant decide on what color.  They are white now and she is ready for something new.  Her kitchen is big and it is really exciting that she can do so much with it!  she has a victorian/country style home with a huge porch and plenty of square feet.  If you have any ideas please send them my way!  
Our son Blake and our dear friend Savannah recently shot a commercial/ banner for Woodlands Church in the Woodlands, Texas.  Pastor Kerry Shook's new message series is "Where the Wild Things Are."  The kids had a blast filming!  I think they are ready for Hollywood now!  WoodlandsChurch normally broadcasts to about 60 million viewers.  Blake wonders if anyone will notice him.  Too funny!  Pastor Kerry has an amazing gift from God and we are truly blessed to be a part of it all!

My birthday!

Today is my birthday and my friends have been so dear to me today! I have been wanted a trunk for Colby's things for quite some time. I have not been able to find one that i thought would be suitable. Either they were too old, too girlie, or just too expensive. My good friend Neile thought all this up on her own and little did i know that she had been screening me for months now! My other good friend Kara and her husband Tommy are amazing! Kara painted and Tommy built. Isnt it awesome! The pictures were taken at our school First Baptist Academy in Conroe, Texas. Colby lost his life to Leukemia at age three. Thanks guys!

Much needed space

This used to be our laundry room. Our new bedroom was added just behind that door. My son had clothes everywhere, so I shut the door! I am so happy to have an area to use my laptop and print! These are the floors that we will eventually add throught the house.
