I have always been making plans. I used to think it was a motherly thing, but I can remember as a little girl , making plans for things. I think it's a big part of being a girl. When your little its planning your summer....making new friends. In your teens it's meeting a special boy. As a woman...for me...it's being a loving mom, wife. And making us a memorable homelife. So I make plans. I may not be able to buy what I want right at that moment,but it just makes me more appreciative when I do get it. I love fixing up our home.
Annabelle really enjoys doing the same thing now too. I am rubbing off on her quite a bit I think. She , like me, makes plans for our home. What to do in a certain room...how we are going to decorate it. She LOVES being a part of that decision process, and she's getting good at it too. lol. When we are out she makes comments about material, bedding , lamps. She saw a lamp the other day and said..."I think it's really really cute..but it doesn't go with the couch. Lets move on." She is turning into me! I love it! She certianly has my creative gene thats for sure. Her brother Andrew too. He just turned seventeen yesterday..and has been aking plans to be an actor. Oops..a FAMOUS actor. He is starting classes soon. My childhood dream! He is so much like me too that way, but has his dads extreme kindness.
Annabelle and I are making plans this week. We are changing her room to a cottage look. She is wanting bedding just like the one in the picture.
We are planning on having a staircase in our future home..just like this one. :) And painted floors like the next picture.
And an adorable sofa like this.....her choice too! Not gonna argue on it though. Its perfect!

My little beautiful girl Annabelle wanted to share some pictures we had taken this spring. She is so crazy about flowers like her mommy, so we tend to take alot. I just forget what we have shared sometimes. lol.
Well these are of the tulips that were planted near her big brothers school. Its a garden center so are always ready for us! The second she saw them she screamed " get your camera mommy!" My little sweetie knows me so well.

She was so kind to let me show you some of her things on my blog. I spent some time in her online studio and her blog just when I thought I found "my favorite " , I saw another. Then another and on it went..lol. I realized I need a bigger home with more wall space. I turn forty at the end of the month and I know what to ask my hubby for. Well please stop by and take a look through her studio....but do me a favour.....leave the "The Italian Bakery" for me.. ;)

Annabelle was so excited for us to share more pictures from our walk a few nights ago. Her cousin Tiffany had stayed the night and went with us. First off we discovered this little guy peeking out at us. And with just a little more sweet talkin' from Annabelle, we might have taken him home with us. But he was pretty big and she realized he would be happier in the creek than with us.
