Show Us Where You Live~Masterbedrooms

Welcome back to the latest installment of Kelly's Korner Tour of Homes. This week she is peeking into master bedrooms. I have had a hard time tearing myself away from the television to get my bedroom picked up from watching all the Micheal Jackson and Farrah Fawcett coverage. Plus, my kiddos love to lounge in our bed and watch all the Drake and Josh's that they have DVR'd. We are in total summertime mode. (Actually just yelled at my boys to get out of my room for about the 100th time today...when you jump in the middle of the pillows on the made up bed, you have crossed the line!) Like I said, summertime!!

In all of my other homes, I always had different color paint, usually dark colors on the walls so when we moved into this house I decided to keep it light and neutral. The paint throughout our house is called Wheatridge by Ace Hardware. We toured a Southern Living featured home and that was the paint that had been used and we loved it.

I got the bedding from Stein Mart, it was actually a "bed in a bag". This bedding seems so hot to me right now, it is 101 degrees in Dallas right now. UGH!!! Plus, our bedroom faces the West and it feels about 101 inside. I made the floral arrangement above the bed E-ons ago...another model home inspiration.

This is what I am reading right now, when I am not obsessed with reading blogs. Creative Correction was suggested by my sweet friend Susan in my bible study and is written by Lisa Whelchel, you remember her?? Blair from Facts of Life?? This is a great book for with ideas and suggestions on disciplining your children (instead of yelling, like I just did). I love the section at the end of each chapter called "The Toolbox". I highly recommend it! Maybe I need to quit reading blogs and re-fresh myself and load a few tools into the Mommy Toolbelt!

Big Daddy's side of the bed, no books there!! Just the remote and sweet pictures of each of my boys the day they left the hospital.

We moved this credenza into our bedroom when Big Daddy started working from home. His office was too crowded, so we had the space in our bedroom. See that cute computer screen wallpaper?? It was free here at Whitney Caroline Designs. Check her stuff out, really cute!!

Closed the doors to the armoire for the picture only!!!

You can't really tell much about the picture above the armoire, but it is a Windberg of a church that Big Daddy bought me as a wedding present almost 18 years ago. Not crazy about the blue and mauve mat, but that was what was so "in" 18 years ago, at least its not a picture of ducks and country crockery!!

Look there, see how the door doesn't open all the way?? There is a weird little nook behind it and it made it tough getting the furniture in here.

The chair was a Salvation Army find for 20.00 and I had it recovered and I love it, unfortunately our little kitty does too, and I was noticing some scratchin' action going on on the ottoman. UGH!! The botanical print was a hostess gift that we got from one of our wedding showers.

These pillows are from my sister, mom, and my good friend Anna. My mom always signs her letters and cards "Hugs, Mom." So she couldn't resist the HUGS pillow.
OK, I am a cord cover FREAK!!! Love 'Em!! Gotta Have 'Em. You can always find them for less than 10.00 at Hobby Lobby when they go on sale for 50% off. I was bending over adjusting the cord cover, and look what I found in the magazine basket!!

How did that get there??!! Finders Keepers!!! I think I will just head on down to Sonic for Happy Hour!! Momma needs a "Coke". (all varieties are called "Coke" in these parts!!)

Thought I would add a picture of the straw that broke the camel's, uh I mean Momma's back that provoked THE yellin at kids moment! Why does everyone have to be within 10 feet of me at all times?? Yes, that includes you too Big Daddy. Man, I just made the bed!!

See ya'll next week...these boys are taking me out to eat tonight. The kitchen is CLOSED!
UPDATED*****If you live in North Texas and get WFAA Channel 8, Lisa Welchel will be on Good Morning Texas on Monday June 29th at 9:00 CST.


  1. Gorgeous - saved the best for last! Have fun eating out!

  2. Your room is so nice! Oh...I must pick up that "Creative Correction" book. I have heard is great, but haven't read it. I need to stop the yelling myself! :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. You have an amazing bedroom, thank you so much for sharing!

  4. Reading more of your blog and you sound so much like me! I need you as my neighbor! I will be finding that book! I have two boys as well AND The Hubster so that really makes 3 and half kiddos to deal with right!?HA! I say 3 and half cause sometimes The Hubster is more of a kid than the actual kids in the house. HA! Here s a question, your boys are a little older than mine, do you get to pee in peace yet??? I dream of that day!
    P.s I am a Texas Gal myself but south east Tx.
