Oh how I could not wait til Christmas. Only to wake up the day after to realize that it's over. The day that we all have been preparing for is now gone. I have not taken down my tree and to be honest, I really don't want to!!! But since the holidays have come and gone, I can focus all my attention on my most important project

My Master Bedroom!

I have chosen the colors and have found and purchased the bedding (pin-tuck duvet from west elm), dresser (I have a surprise for you with the dresser!), and I have found (not purchased) my chandelier. All I need to do is patch a few problem spots on the wall, prime, and paint. After I paint the walls I'm going to move on to making my headboard. The headboard is going to be something similar to Freckles Chick headboard

One of my Christmas gifts was an air compressor, so once I purchase my spray attachment I'll be ready to paint some furniture...woo hoo!!!

Hopefully by Wednesday I can post a mood board to give you an idea of the space. Until then, I'd like to hear how your Holiday Celebrations went!!! Did you get everything you wanted? Did you get to enjoy your family? What about the food, were there any non-traditional meals made? Come on guys spill the beans!!!

This was the best Christmas I've had in years. I got everything I wanted, which was for my children to be overwhelmed with JOY! My husband and I to be in good health! I actually enjoyed my family (and the inlaws, shocking of course)! My sons got great gifts from both grandparents and that made me feel good, that my children were thought of! I cooked the best batch of Collard Greens and that Honey Baked Ham and Over Roasted Turkey! WOOOOOOOOOO! I was also able to give more this year from my heart and not just my pocket. But I'll have to do better with a few Birthday gifts in 2010, since I might have given a few things NOT wanted! Wink Wink! I was most THANKFUL for my ex-husband to spend Christmas Day with us, so my son could experience that! That's a GOD things! So I thank him for that! And especially my husband who loves me unconditionally and rolls with the punches of life with me. :)
