14 days of rain = bedroom makeovers?

I have just checked the weather network and can't believe it!...rain for the next 14 days. All I managed to do today was cut half of the grass because the rest is a pond. Some weeding took place but not enough , the wisteria bush was not planted and the new garden bed was not cut. It just to wet to do anything out there today.

Once I saw him, weeding came to a screeching halt. Stubborn frog would not move and I was not touching him. He must be loving all that rain. Oh PRETTY PLEASE Mother Nature, don't let the whole Summer be like this too . I just love my boyfriend aka "the pool" and I miss him terribly!!! but if I had a bedroom like this, rain would never be able to separate us again.

I have been wanting update the girls rooms for a while but I never had the time. 14 days of rain just might make me. The twins nursery is beige with a Winnie the Pooh theme because I never knew the sexes until they were born. The girls kept their legs crossed at every ultrasound appointment, taking after their big sister who did the exact same thing and also enjoyed a Winnie the Pooh nursery. I painted pink and purple butterflies pulled from the bedding to make it more feminine but it doesn't seem enough.

I really like the the lavender crib bedding:  and fell in love with Tiffani Thiessen daughter's lavender nursery. It is such a calm & soothing colour and the white accents are so crisp & clean.Walmart carries white plastic flowers and butterflies that I could stick on the wall instead of the birds.

 Or I could go darker like a red comforter:  and try to re-create this room from HGTV. The girls are 15 months old and maybe would like a little colour. This is such a sweet room and still very little girlish. Did I mention they both look great in red?!

For Cesina's room I was thinking zebra sheets:  and pink...lots and lots of pink.
The goal is to have a room that will carry her into her tween years so I don't have to re-do it again in a couple of years. Maybe just change out some of her accessories as her taste bud's mature...ahem goodbye everything Hannah Montana.
 I am really glad her favourite colour is not lime green anymore, although the pink could very easily be switched out to any bright colour. With 14 indoor days ahead of me, I got nothing but time to brainstorm.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this gitana theme!
I still would rather do this during the winter months when there is nothing to do outside and enjoy the few months of warmer weather while it's here.
Sigh...come back soon Mr. Sun!!
So I can enjoy the smell of my lilacs in bloom
and the girls love outdoor adventures.

Although they certainly are very creative with their indoor adventures too.

I hope your weekend is sunny ,warm and DRY. Nothing like a little blog hopping to brighten one's day.
