Summering at Greenacre


Spring kinda turned into Summer this year at Greenacre.
I kicked it off with the big girl bedroom makeovers.
The gemelas were constantly in Cesina's room and  the time had finally come for her to have her own space . A wonderful space where I can not worry about the gemelas breaking something . A place where Barbie and Draculaura can chill out with the Zooballs  and not worry about going MIA or losing limbs.

 Hot pink which was chosen from a Hello Kitty bag that my husband took to Home Depot to get as close a colour match as possible. Accented by cheetah print and glitter...lots and lots of glitter|
 The first step was to empty the nursery. In other words...
The milestone of giving away the last crib 
starting another milestone
The nicest fabric in stock was this rainbow cheetah print that was Cesina`s first choice. I stapled the fabric on to the old computer chair & hot glued a piece of  fabric to the lamp.
The final touches were some wall decals and flowers.

 I used the a raspberry toned pink for the dresser and a lighter pink for the walls.
Accenting with the `special Cesina room pink``. Ajelandra handed me the paintbrush as I was painting Cesina`s room and knew that was the ticket to their transition. ...  A pinkalicious bedroom.
 This room is still a work in progress. .I need to make a bed curtain  for the bottom bunk to shut out the  light because Summertime brings the it doesn`t get dark until 9:30 joy.
 It was so warm that we and I mean my wonderful husband, opened the pool early. A whole month early to be exact and it has been our BFF ever since.
My baby graduated Senior Kinder garden.
Printed off these fabulous free print ables but never got to use them so I will scrapbook them instead.
My tiger lilies that are always in bloom for Canada Day and have to be trimmed by the end of July. In a week's time to be precise. Half way through Summer already mi gente...half way through Summer.

Won the lottery with this Red Lobster like garlic biscuit recipe I found on Pinterest.
 Then suffered the heartbreak of Italy losing at the Euro cup but had an amazing Italian flag manicure and pedicure.
Took going to the water park off the Summer bucket list.
Added chasing seagull around.
Watching the drought progress and it's affect on my plants.
Feeling very grateful for our famer's market!
and I'm not alone on that one.

Hope your Summering is wonderful and all you dreamed it be.

Having a fabulous time Summering at Greenacre ya'll! xoxo
