is this awesome sling. I finally pulled it out of the closet yesterday when Kate was being super needy. She did not want to swing or snuggle in her bed. She wanted to snuggle on me. Don't get me wrong, my favorite thing in the world is to snuggle with her but I can't sit on my butt all day. I got her all snuggly in the little kangaroo pouch and away we went around the house and did our chores. It was wonderful until I tried to wash my face. I couldn't bend over to wash the soap off my face or else I would have slammed her into the vanity so I took a wash cloth and cleaned myself up. I then attempted to put my face on (make-up) and realized I was also getting make up on her. So I had to stand side ways with my face turned away from her so none of it would drop on her. We did some laundry, cleaned the dishes and then Riley threw up. Seriously? As if trying to wash my face and put on my make up weren't challenging enough I now had to get on the floor and clean up this mess. I took Kate down with me and we did it. I can now do anything with her snuggled in her pouch on my stomach. Thing thing will be going grocery shopping with us, to church, you name it, it's there!...it is our new best friend!

And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it. All because we put the tv on the wall! Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover. Before . I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown. I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
