A whole bunch of STUFF

Before I write anything else - I want to share with you that my dad (he's a pastor) is writing a series of blogs about why bad things happen to good people. I know as we constantly see such sad things on blogs or hear of people losing children or having cancer - it's hard to understand. I hope that you will hop over and read what my dad writes - hopefully through the Bible - we can better understand. I also recently saw this video which I thought was great as well on the same subject.
So I've been on a quest to spruce up our bedroom. It's been the same for many years and I've never really liked it too much. Lately it was covered in baby things but sadly - Harper has outgrown most of it (bouncy seat, activity mat, etc) so I have begun packing them up and putting them away.

This was how our bedroom looked before
And this is after. If you remembered - I wanted to do white and brown bedding and I got this bedding from Dillard's. I really, really like it. I found white lamps at T J Maxx that I really like and new curtains. I know it might look better if the curtains were longer and were raised several inches above the windows -this is what I could get for now. Maybe later - I'll work on making them longer or raising them.
The next thing I want to do is get several gallery frames - big white mats and frames like the ones from Pottery Barn below (only I'm going to search for a budget option) and frame family pictures for the 2 walls on either side of our bed.
I am so lucky to have a big group of friends from church/Sunday School who are all stay at home moms and we get together every other week at a different house for lunch and for the kids to play and for us to visit. I've been working hard all week to get my house ready (as clean as I can with a baby and limited time) and I just realized that we are having "Martin" day at play group tomorrow - because I'm making my Dad's enchiladas, my mom's salsa (recipe below) and my brother's guacamole. And a strawberry dessert!

My mom found this recipe for Chili's salsa (which we love) and she makes it like every week now:

CHILI'S SALSA

1 (14 1/2 oz.) can tomatoes and green chilies
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can whole canned tomatoes (plus the juice)
4 teaspoons jalapenos (canned, diced, not pickled)

1/4 cup yellow onion (diced)
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon sugar

and this is not on the recipe but we add: 1/4 teaspoon cilantro and juice from 1/2 lime

1. In food processor place jalapenos (optional) and onion and process for just a few seconds.
2. Add both cans of tomatoes, salt, sugar, cumin,cilantro and lime juice.
3. Process all ingredients until well blended but do not puree.
4. Place in covered container and chill.
5. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips!

and Last but certainly NOT least - here is a little girl who is LOVING carrots!!!!
(We'll work on eating a little neater later)

P.S. Harper HAS been in her own room for about a month now and is doing great!!!

Kristina said...

Kubin's said...

The bed room looks great! Love the carrot face...too cute! I love how Harper always has a big smile on her face. What a happy girl y'all have!

Todd and Courtney said...

Ahhhh love the carrots picture! I'm def. checking out yours dad's blog. I read it all the time anyway. That's such a great topic because it's truly something I have a hard time understanding and your dad has such a way with words. He seems so sweet Kelly!

Laurie said...

I love your new room! Looking forward to the lunch!

Sarah Sharp said...

Your room looks great! I tried to open the enchilada recipe link but it is taking me to the Dillards site for your bedding.

Lindsey Carver said...

I love your bedroom! I just redid ours a couple of months ago, and it's amazing how good it makes you feel. The girls from my church/lifegroup get together frequently too, we all have babies, don't you just love the companionship? Keep those sweet baby girl pictures coming!

Brunch at Saks said...

Kelly your new room is fabulous! I am in love with those pillows and dramatic drapes! Ay-may-zig! XOXO

Heather B. said...

I read but don't normally comment (sorry) but had to say I love your "new" bedroom! AND Harper is a sweetheart... :-)

If you haven't already discovered, carrots are HARD to get out of clothes so be careful! TBH I stopped feeding them to my dd bc I was getting so frustrated with them and now that she can eat them just steamed, she's eating them alot.

I'm going to go read your dad's blog - we've going through a bit of a rough time and it could be just be the reminder I need.

God bless.

Julie said...

Your bedroom looks great!! Also Love Harper's carrot face!!

Ashley said...

Love the new bedroom colors.

When I was a baby i loved carrots too. My mom told me that i ate so much my mouth was stained orange. :)

Julia said...

hahaha, nice! Loving the easy-to-clean bibs! I read your Dad's blog this morning and it was so good to hear him speak truth! Tip about the gallery frames...Hayden and I bought a bunch like that at Wal-Mart and he just spray painted them. We also got some very pretty ledges at Target on major sale!

Holly said...

I love the new Bedroom Kelly!!! Its beautiful! Harper is as sweet as always!!!

Tobey said...

Love the bedroom. You might try Kohl's for the frames - they are usually reasonably priced and have some very similar.

Harper is a doll!

Stacey said...

I love your "new" bedroom Kelly! It looks great. Hobby Lobby is a great place for frames and they have a great 50% sale most of the time.

Katie said...

Too funny...I was just fixing to look up a recipe for some enchiladas to make this week. And, oh my goodness, I thought that was SALSA all over Harper's face at first!! Hahaha! I'm happy to know you haven't moved her into the realm of jalapenos and chiles just yet! ;o) But, hey, ya never know... ;o)

Shaunta said...

Love the bedroom! So pretty! I wanted white frames in our house but couldn't find any that really jumped out at me, so I took plain inexpensive wooden frames and spray painted them white. It gave them a little character, and even though all the frames aren't the same style, they all match color wise!

Here is a little about us... said...

Would love to get that guacamole recipe!! Harper is adorable!

MER said...

Bedroom looks great! I love the brown. Check out IKEA, Target or Wal Mart for frames...Brooklyn Limestone just wrote about the Ribba frames at IKEA and I'm plotting a trip to our nearest one.

Cody Sharene said...

Harper is such an adorable little girl! I hope you post where you find budget-friendly frames because I've been looking everywhere and can't find any that are "just right."

Melissa's Thoughts said...

There is nothing more precious than our little ones covered in carrots. :O) Love it. You have done a wonderful job on your bedroom. You have such wonderful taste.

Susy said...

Ha! I made your mom's salsa last night! It's yummy!
And I love your bedroom! Good job!

About Me said...

Kelly- I noticed Harper's pack-n-play is no longer in your room! That's great that she no longer sleeps with you guys. That's a hard thing to do I know. :)

Darsi said...

LOVE the new look in the bedroom!! I also really like the idea you have of customizing your curtains by adding some fabric to the length--that would kick it up another notch!! Ha Ha cracked up when I saw Harper's carrot face!! Too cute for words!!

Michelle said...

Your bedroom looks great! Harper is so adorable eating her carrots, my boys loved sweet potatoes.

Kristi J said...

Beautiful revamp of the bedroom, Kelly. I love the longer curtains as well! I purchased longer curtains for our bedroom about a foot above the top of the windows and it definitely adds more drama. You know, you could even (if you sew, or could take them to a seamstress) have additional fabric attached to the bottoms of the ones you have for a colorblock look. I'm can't tell what fabric your curtains are, but maybe you could add some white silk fabric to the bottoms to tie in the bedding set.

Harper's adorable with her little carrot stained face. Oh, but guard those clothes. Carrots stain so badly!

Kristi J said...

Kind of like this with adding the fabric to the bottom of the curtains (wasn't sure if my explanation made sense!)

Melissa Miller said...

Your new bedding is gorgeous!

Have a blessed day. ~Melissa :)

Father's Grace Ministries said...

I LOVE that picture of Harper!!!- carrot and all- what a special smile!

bedroom makeover looks great too. I love chocolate brown, and the white keeps it fresh and balanced, without being overpowering.

Claire

Christa said...

Love your bedroom! Your bedding looks great! What a cute picture of Harper...love her sweet smile!!

LC said...

your room is adorable! i love that bedding. i have been patiently waiting to redo our bedroom...i have great bedding but i'm waiting until after we buy a new house to get a new bedroom suite. or more like inpatiently waiting!

harper is cute as usual! such a smiley baby...what more can you ask for?!

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

I have the same curtains!! And I love how they look! I did the chocolate/ pale blue, and white theme. Now I am going to attempt to make make us an upholstered headboard. Fun stuff.

I just printed out the Chili's salsa recipe. I can't wait to try that. I have a huge cilantro plant in my backyard that is so yummy. One of my favorites.

RyderMakes3 said...

Ahhh Harper looks so precious, she sure is enjoying those carrots! You bedroom looks really beautiful, awesome job!! ~Katie

Miss HoneyDew said...

Your bedroom looks great!!! I will definitely be reading your dad's blog! How great!

Lauren Kelly said...

I'm loving your room but I'm loving the sweet little girl and her carrots more, haha!!! Don't think you could argue on that one, haha!!! :)

kimert said...

Your bedroom looks fantastic!!! I'd love to read your dad's blog, too. :) As always, Harper is precious!

Tiffany said...

First I LOVE the new look in the bedroom. It's funny because as soon as I saw how much wall space you have I instantly thought of a picture wall with lots of mattes and big frames! I'm glad that is what you are thinking too. The salsa sounds yummy. I'm going to try it. Have a fun playgroup. I'm off to check out your dad's blog. He is so inspiring!

Heather said...

That picture of Harper is priceless! Love it and your bedroom! Thanks for the recipe, I have been looking for a good salsa recipe!

Alexis said...

The room looks great! I totally heart all those pillows!

Elle Squared said...

Love your room! And that salsa looks good! MMM!

Megan said...

Your bedroom makeover looks great!

hibnerfamily said...

I love your makeover! The warm rich colors look so inviting. An idea... you mentioned wanting perhaps longer curtains to hang them higher on the wall to make the ceiling and windows look taller. You could easily have someone build something similar to this keep it simple but elegant: http://www.diynetwork.com/how-to/how-to-make-a-foam-core-cornice/index.html You could hang it above where you have your curtains now to make it appear like the windows were taller. I think your room looks fabulous but it's just an idea since you mentioned having longer curtains. It doesn't have to be expensive at all.

Karen said...

Love the new colors in your room. Thinking that hanging over your bed is a little too big and overpowering for that space.......just a thought. Harper's little face is just too precious!
Blessings.

The Longs in Italy.... said...

You should make your own chips too!! I use a deep fryer for this. Take CORN tortillas cut them into fourths and then fry them for a few minutes. Then salt! TA-DA! Chips just like they taste at your local Mexican restaurant! Since we live in Italy because of the military i do not get to eat mexican food unless we make it ourselves so i make these chips often!!

Southern Savvy said...

Oh Kelly I just love the bedding! I've been looking for almost 2 months for bedding for our new king size mattress. I've looked everywhere but Dillards so thanks for reminding me!

The Garners said...

Your bedroom looks really pretty! Ours needs work, but I want to paint and I'm not sure when I can get L to do that job!

We love Chili's salsa--thanks for sharing the recipe.

Mandi said...

Harper is SUCH a happy baby! You're doing a good job momma!

Can you believe D is one and a half years old today??? 18 months of lovin' my sweet boy!!!

Katie said...

Looks great! I found some 25" frames, with a 20" photo at IKEA for $25 each, which is the lowest price I have found. Hopefully you have an IKEA by you!

P.S. Harper is so adorable!

amandanbo said...

love your bedroom and that little carrot covered face is way too cute! i agree with the ladies that say "ikea, ikea, ikea". i just bought some fantastic frames there (gallery type) and they are soooooo affordable!

mommyandthethreeboys said...

I don't comment very often, but it is the cutest picture yet of her!!!
It just struck me so hard I almost wanted to cry!! (It may be PMS related) She is just so happy and sweet!!) Thank you for sharing her with us it just brightens my day!!
Lots of Hugs,
Amber (Las Vegas)

Leigh said...

That's the cutest carrot smeared face I have ever seen :)

Do you have a Hobby Lobby close! They have good frames and mats plus every few weeks they are 50% off...it's the only place I buy frames anymore.

Lindsey Conrad - Nabors said...

LOVE the lamps!!! I love how the white shades pop against the dark drapes! And thanks for sharing Chili's salsa! My Mom and I are convinced that is the best salsa out there, even better then authentic mexican food restaurants! yummo!

Hailey said...

I love your new bedroom linens, it looks GREAT.
And that Harper she is such a cutie :)

Faith said...

The room looks great! I definitely suggest Ikea for the frames...they have some just like that. Chad and I LOVE your mom's salsa recipe and have it all the time now! Man, my mouth is watering and I'm craving some now =)

Audra said...

Love your makeover. I wish I lived closer to you so I could be in your SAHM playgroup. I have no one my age with kids in our church of 400. Not kidding either! You're very blessed!

I love your new bedroom, and I actually prefer the curtains to "puddle" rather than barely touch. Leave it!

Aimee said...

Your room looks so good!

And Harper is adorable!

That Chili's salsa is addicting. I have been having to get salsa to go all the time lately! Now I can just make it! Thanks! =)

Heather said...

Your bedroom looks great! I love the brown and white!

Shannon said...

i WILL be heading over to your dad's blog... as I have asked this question a lot lately... as friends and family have endured hard times! I consider myself a woman with faith and hate to see it diminish right before my eyes as bad things keep happening to good people! THANKS!

fhlogan said...

Kelly,

You are are a super Mother and wife. However, I do have to say it is time for Harper to be in her own room and bed.
I know how protective us mothers are and I understand where you are coming from, but it is time to loosen up a tad and not have her in your bedroom. Sorry :(

Karen L. said...

ok...this probably has already been posted but it was HILARIOUS! i was reading your salsa recipe and it was just making my mouth water and immediately following it i scrolled down to see a picture of H with red stuff all over her mouth and it about gave me a heart attack!! then the caption "loving her carrots" relieved me!!! so funny!

Cupcake Mama said...

Have you thought of adding something to the bottom of the drapes...it would add some interest and you would be able to hang them higher.
Also, I have an art suggestion...take artist canvas and then do hand and footprints in black paint. Then just date it and put Harper's name in the corner...instant art! If I get around to it I will do it with my own two wee ones and show you!

MeganSloan said...

Love the contrast of the new curtains!

Jennifer said...

Your makeover looks great! I love brown. It's one of my very favorite colors.
I noticed Harper had one of those wipe off bibs. Aren't those the best? We love them!

Jennifer said...

The new bedroom looks great!! IKEA has gallery style frames in lots of sizes for a lot less than most places. I don't think they sell them from the website, and I know there's not one in Arkansas, but if you're going to be in the Dallas area anytime soon, they have them at the Frisco IKEA.

Aaron, Lacey, and Audrey said...

Your new room looks great! I love the colors especially the white lamps! Have you thought about not using a bed skirt? I think with the style of bed you have it would look even better without the skirt!! Just a thought.... And Harper is too cute with her carrots!

Melissa said...

I love the sparkle Harper has when she smiles! Such a beautiful baby. Oh, I love your new bedding, too! Great choice.

Sweet Simplicity said...

I have that white bedding from Dillards and I love it! Chili's salsa is my absolute favorite thing ever. I can't wait to try this recipe!!!!! Thanks for sharing!

pohren said...

Oh my goodness, THE recipe for Chili's salsa! This made my day! I love the stuff and thank you very much, I will be trying it soon.

Jenna said...

The room looks awesome!! I absolutely love it - and I ADORE that little bunny and her carrots!

Amanda said...

Your room looks fabulous! I have been making your mom's salsa recipe for about 6 weeks and it has been a HUGE hit around here! I am LOVING that pic of Harper and her carrots! TOO CUTE!

Lianna Knight said...

I LOVE the bedroom makeover...very pretty!

And who could not LOVE that little cute carrot covered baby :)

Shannon said...

Harper looks like such a happy baby in all her pictures! She makes me want to try and talk my hubby into having kids earlier than we've planned! You really are an inspiration to women!

Courtney said...

Love the new room! Harper looks so happy in the last photo. Too cute!

Girl with the Curlz said...

The room looks great!! Carrot girl is so adorable. Oh I can't wait to try your mom's salsa recipe. I have to say I have tried almost all the recipes on your recipe blog. Can I say we LOVE them!! My husband keeps saying "do you have any more recipes from Kelly" It is too cute. Keep those yummy recipes coming :-)

Suzette said...

LOVE the new look in your room!
And thank you for sharing the salsa recipe... I'm going to have to make it tomorrow!

*You really inspire me, I don't know how you are so good to brush off 'hater' comments! I got one mean comment about the way I don't love my daughter the way I should and I'm ready to cancel my blog because of it... I can hear you smile when I read your blog! :)

Marie said...

The bedroom looks nice, but I also liked it before. I like the salsa recipe. I am glad Harper is doing good in her room. Boy, is she growing!

KK said...

Your bedroom looks beautiful. Thanks for everything your Dad is sharing. Also thanks for sharing the great sounding recipe. Looks yum:)
Carrots and smiles, what else could anyone ask for?
Blessings always,

Bethany said...

Your room looks beautiful! You do such a great job finding deals and making it look like a professional designed and decorated!

I'm so glad to hear that Harper is in her own room and doing well. Good job momma! Your daughter is super sweet and so are you :)

The Monogrammed Mrs. said...

whew! that was scary. I thought at first you were going to say harper was eating salsa!

Bri said...

Love the room! So how did you move Harper to her bedroom? I am having trouble doing it here :(

Genie Marie said...

Love the new look of your room....and I am so wanting chips and salsa now. If you are wanting to make your curtains longer you could always sew a panel across the bottom of white material and then put something decorative(like ribbon) to match the room on the seam. Cheap and easy way to lengthen curtains:)

easternjourney.com said...

Your bedroom looks so beautiful! I know you are going to love getting some of your beautiful photos in frames. I've found Ikea frames to be the most bang for your buck.

I'm so glad Harper is loving' carrots. I fed Schäfer so much carrots and pumpkin that he turned orange. I'm not kidding. Hubs politely asked me to steam the boy some cauliflower until his natural coloring returned! *hugs*

Catherine said...

I love your room...Id love to spruce mine up too since my husband and I still use most of the stuff Ive had since middle school! :)
Anyways I saw your pottery barn frames and I wanted to let you know that if you go to Michaels or Hobby Lobby you can buy sheets of mat to frame with for about $1-$2. You can buy it in any colr you can imagine. So, all you would need is an exacto knife to cut out the middle. (And maybe a little practice.) Then you could find cheep frames and make your own! Through reading your blog I see how crafty you are I know you could make wonderful frames!!!

Kris said...

Three quick things...

1. I love your bedroom. It looks really cozy. I bet it looks pretty at night when all the lights are out except for the lamps. I'm a big fan of lamplight.

2. Harper's carrot face is too stinkin' cute!

3. Chili's salsa rocks, so thanks for the recipe! Can't wait to try it!

Williams Family said...

Look at Kohl's for picture frames or Hobby Lobby. I got some black frames with large white mats for a great deal. Your bedroom looks great!

Carol said...

For a second I thought that Harper had been eating a ton of salsa!!

Love the bedroom, before AND after!

Laura said...

Yes! Chili's salsa!!! Thank you!

We also have a brown bedroom - with white and blue - and I love it! Yours looks great. Hobby Lobby has the big frames and theirs go on sale every other week so you might want to check that out.

Rory said...

You can get frames with mats like that for $14.99-19.99 at Target. OR I went to Hobby Lobby and got some cheap gold ones and had them cut a mat for me, then I spray painted the frames white.

The Scott Family said...

Sweetest smile ever! What a beautiful girl! Oh, and I had Chilis chips and salsa tonight...yum!

Pieper Rodriguez said...

Fabulous job on the room update- it looks great! I love how something as simple as a color change can completely reenergize a space. But as much as I like the room, I like the carrot faced baby better! Too sweet!

The Petty's said...

Keep the drapes (curtains), just blouse them. Get some white ribbon or cord and puff or blouse the curtain mid way with the ribbon. I did my living room sheers that way and love it.
Love reading your blog.

BTW, we were in Little Rock with World Changers in July. It was truly a wonderful week. Changed our world, as we hope it did the 20 homeowners that got their homes fixed up.

Clementsville: Population of 4! said...

Thank you for sharing your Dad's blog... I look forward to checking it out! I LOVE your room, I need to work on our room as well!! Harper is precious as ever and thank you so much for the chili's salsa recipe, my hubby is going to be very thankful! It's his FAV!!

Katie

Kym said...

Love the new room! Such a great job with some bargain finds!

Also--just started reading your blog and love it! Harper is just the cutest!!

R said...

what made me giggle was the possibility that you have taken a photo of Chili's chips and salsa. sounds like something i'd do! :0)

Allyson said...

Love the new bedding! And love the idea with the silver frames with white mats. You are just a great decorator.

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

Love the bedroom makeover.Thanks for letting us know about your Dad's blogpost. Love & blessings from NC

Mrs. Jenk said...

A little budget friendly tip- you can always spray paint frames, so if you find some you like in various colors and the price is right, just put some brown spray paint in your cart :) Have fun decorating!

Angie said...

Love the makeover. Suggestion on the frames: Target and Hobby Lobby have the same frames, but in black. A can of white or silver spray paint is cheap thought :-)

Also, I don't know if you ever go on the JC Penney website, but they always have the really long curtains on sale. I got a set for less than $60 total. They always have them on clearance.

Kel said...

Hi Kelly,
I love your blog!
I have a random question for you...I have a co-side sleeper for my little 2 month old and I usually just end up changing him in bed. Well, since he is a boy (my other 2 were girls) he often pees all over the bed and I am going through sheets like crazy.
To make a long story short... did you find that you used the changing table option on your pack n play you had for Harper. I am considering buying one but am having a hard time spending the money since I already have the co-side sleeper.
Thanks in advance for your advice.

p.s Love the room makeover...very dramatic

Mary Virginia said...

Gorgeous room makeover! I love the brown and white. Also, I have found great gallery frames at Target at much better prices than PB.

KK said...

Harper is just so yummy! She has the best smile!

Your bedroom looks awesome! If you want longer curtains, it would be an easy fix. Just sew a panel at the bottom is maybe white or red or pink or even the same chocolate brown but not in the silk fabric, rather in a heavier velvet maybe. You could add a chocolate brown grosgrain ribbon line across the seam line.

Donna said...

HI Kelly, I have found the museum style mats at Michaels. Use the 40 off coupon. Then get the frames at Hobby Lobby, often on sale for 50% off. And like other posters have said, if you find what you want and it isn't the right color, just spray paint it. The bedroom looks great. I love the piece over your bed and glad you kept it in this makeover. Dawson will blend nicely with the new bedding. ha! As always, Miss Harper is adorable. Glad she is loving her carrots.
Keeping you in my heart in Ga.
Donna

stevensfarm said...

Love your re-do on your room. Looks lovely! Harper as always is adorable and beautiful!

Val, Mike and Brax said...

i know YOU see this, you are her momma, but i see such a sparkle in harper's eyes when she smiles. i always click on her pictures to enlarge them so i can see that sparkle better! it makes me smile every time.

WaitingandHoping said...

Thanks for posting the Chili's salsa recipe! I LOVE their salsa--it's my favorite! I'm making it tonight! Thanks thanks thanks!
And your bedroom looks gorgeous--before and after! :)

Aimee' said...

Not sure if someone already mentioned this or not but...you said you wanted to find longer curtains so you could raise them...an easy and cheap solution to that is to add fabric to the bottom...since you did a brown and white theme you could add white fabric to the bottom and you'd be able to raise them. ;) I saw it on a show on HGTV. ha! Your room looks beautiful!

Elisha said...

FYI... it doesnt get any better than this. I was at Dollarama on the weekend and bought VERY similar photo frames for $1.25-2.00each!! So if you have a dollarama check them out- I darn near peed myself I was so excited! lol. I left with 6 for myself and had went in for 1 for a gift basket!

Ashley said...

Wow! That room looks awesome! Great job!!

Lil' Woman said...

Your room looks great and Harpers face is priceless! : )

Sarah said...

Hi Kelly,

If you're looking for some fun renovating ideas, you should check out "Young House Love," www.younghouselove.com. They have the best ideas for utilizing what you already have and putting finishing touches on remodels.

jilljohnandhope said...

Try Gordmans for the frames!

Lauren said...

Your room looks amazing! I've been inspired to update our room since seeing your post. Your beginning looks so much better than mine.. it still looks like a college kids room! ha! Kohl's has some great gallery looking frames! I spotted them the other day... and they are always having great sales! Hope you find what you're looking for!

jlmcclure said...

Where's the Guacamole recipe???!?!? :) You've mentioned it twice, but no recipe!

Maddy said...

i am still being ignored and im tired of it!

Harper is soo cute!
email me as soon as possible
maddyforeman@yahoo.com

Lyndsay said...

I don't know if you guys have IKEA down there, but they have great frames that are very similar to the Pottery Barn ones for just a fraction of the price. I love IKEA!

Lynda said...

I was thinking IKEA as well (I love IKEA).If you don't have an IKEA in your area, you can go online. Most of their items can be purchased online.

BTW, Harper is just to cute for words.

noahandlylasmommi said...

your room is gorgeous! Love the colors. Yum, that salsa sounds delicious. I have never made salsa before... I will have to give it a go.

Jessica said...

Hey Kelly, Try adding a foot of white fabric at the end of your curtains to make them longer so you can raise them up. And also check out IKEA for inexpensive matted frames like the ones at Potery Barn. Bedroom looks great!

Jessica

Meagan said...

I just made that recipe for the salsa --- it is soooo good and tastes just like Chili's! Thanks!!!
