Tacky, Ghetto Curtains for Baby Room

Please forgive my title, "ghetto curtains" but this is the one of the most ridiculous things I have done in interior decorating! We moved into a trailer and have been here for almost two months already. My daughter's room had not been touched and her floor had been covered with all her toys, blankets, clothes, and curtains since day one.

Clearly it was time for me to get my lazy butt up and do it. So I cleaned up her floor, which took less than 30 minutes and all that was left to do was the curtains. Somehow we lost the curtain rods during the move. Of course, I didn't feel like running to the store or postponing the task, so here is what happened.

Check out how I rolled up the bottom of the curtains and quickly safety pinned them up. 

Check out the best part. I tacked the curtains to the wall.

So whaddya think?

These curtains are Eclipse Energy Saving Curtains.

Looks fairly decent huh? Or does it look like I bolted my daughter's bedroom window shut? Either way, it's staying like that for at least a month or two or ten because it keeps most of the light out of her room, which ensures long naps and good sleep into the morning. :)

Hope you were inspired by my tacky, ghetto curtain bedroom get up.

Does the Gyro Bowl Really Work?

Let me start by saying that I do LOVE the idea of the spill-proof Gyro bowl for children.

But you can't seriously think a bowl could be smarter than your child?? Children are specialists at creating messy disasters all over your house, car, lawn, and basically everywhere that their tiny, little, grubby hands end up touching. Come on people... of course it doesn't work all the time. It is not completely spill-proof as it claims to be. In general, the Gyro bowl will work to hold most of the snack inside, even as your child is whipping it in a circle over their head. (Gotta give the bowl some credit for that!) But you will still have grapes, little bits of cheese, or crackers spread all over your floor. If you are lucky enough to have a child that is part dog like me, they will end up picking up all the leftovers one by one until the floor is cleaned up.

I'd say this bowl is definitely worth the purchase. It does a much better job at containing food compared to a regular bowl.

The package says it's for ages 2 years and up but it does a decent job for my 11 month old as well. Look how she likes to hold it...

Mommy Has A Blue Face

When I was younger my mom had a large collection of colorful, nice smelling face masks that she shared with me. I've always enjoyed experimenting with different masks and then taking crazy pictures of myself. If you are a close friend, maybe we have done this??? (LOL) Face masks ALWAYS make for good times during a girl's night.

Anyways, it's been way too long since I've used a face mask so I decided that tonight was the night to bring back memories! I started smearing blue mud-like gunk all over my face when I realized I might scare Miss A with it on...

I quickly brought her into the bathroom with me and told her "Look Miss A, Mommy has a blue face!" She watched me cover my face entirely in blue... She didn't just casually watch, she GAWKED. And I mean, she stared at me like I was fricken out of my mind!

 But hey, she didn't cry right? That's all that matters.

What I'd Do If I Was Childless and Single

I had exciting life plans.
  1. Peace Corps
  2. Teach English in Taiwan: Bill & I actually submitted our application for a program the same day I saw two lines on the pregnancy test.
  3. Master's Degree Abroad: Quebec, France, or Belgium for a degree in something "international"
  4. Work in National Parks across the United States
  5. Extensive Meditation Retreat in China (The 3-6-9-12 month long meditation retreats.)
  6. Internship in Foreign Service in Washington D.C while furthering my education
 Don't you be fooled. I'm not missing out. Look what I have instead.

We are B.A.
I have the cutest, prettiest, sweetest, naughtiest (:P) baby girl AND a sexy, crazy, funny husband. Now we can make new exciting life plans together as a family. Besides, I'd be too lonely out there in the world by myself anyways.

Miss A just came to me a little bit ago to climb up on my lap, snuggle a bit, and then fall asleep. She is so ridiculously adorable that I could have let her sleep on me all night. She must have sensed I was writing about being childless and single. What she just did was exactly why I wanted to become a mother in the first place. That is my favorite thing about my life.
