Design from a Trunk!

This is what happens when you put off projects and you have company coming. lol I have been meaning for a year now to put up curtains in our media room and babies room (among others lol). So last night I nearly entered panic stage when I realized we have family coming Thursday and all these projects were not complete and to make matters worse I hadn't purchased curtain rods yet!! So these are the results of digging out curtains and using thumb tacks LOL

The next set of pictures here are my versions of 'wall art'. I have so much blank wall in this house... I found my husbands old and I mean OLD (lol) little league jersey and thought it would be cute to hang in the media room. In my daughters room, I hung some handmade blankets that were handed down from my husband's family.

In the hallway, the little asian outfit was a gift to us from some friends. All these things, have meaning to us.. and I thought that perhaps they hold more "value" hanging where we can see them, then carefully folded in a dark trunk!

This "has" to work for me I have company coming lol

I would have been incredibly disappointed if there had been no curtains in our room! haha No, I loved how you decorated. It was very creative. Maybe you need to fly over and help me! -TaraG

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
