No Messes & Uninterrupted Sleep

I am guilty of complaining about all the messes I have to pick up daily. I often whine about not getting a full eight hours of sleep. The Bubs left on Sunday to spend one full week with Grandma. This is the longest we have been separated. I suffered from separation anxiety when he pulled out of the driveway with Daddy.

There is not anything in the world I would trade for this little guy. Not a spotless house. Not eight hours of uninterrupted sleep. Nothing! I love this little guy. Bubba teeth and all!

Can ya' help a girl out?

I have been searching high and low for the perfect khaki/beige/tan color. As you can tell I have not found what I am looking for. I have bought a gallons worth of samples and still have not found the perfect color. I have bought 4 colors to go from Sherwin Williams and samples from Benjamin Moore and Ace Hardware! I obviously need your help. This picture is just one side of the livingroom! I have more samples on the other side too. Yikes!
Our walls are painted an off white and stained. We used a paint brush and painted the stain on and then used rags to wipe it off. We are not happy with the color of the ceiling. We want to find a color to paint the ceiling and maybe the entire living room, master bedroom and bathroom.

Do you have a favorite khaki color?

Halloween Costume

I found this Peter Pan costume idea at Make It and Love It. I made two because the first one was too small. Mine did not turn out nearly as cute as the inspiration costume. I am a lazy sewer. I did not even take time to change out the thread colors.

I bought the leggings at a used children's clothing store for $1.49.
The hat ended up being way too big and he would hardly wear it.
I found a Tinker Bell costume at Target, but my daughter did not want to wear it because it had a picture of Tinker Bell on it. She ended up getting strep throat so we ended up not doing any trick or treating anyway. She went back to school today and is feeling much better.
