Bedroom & Updates...

I've been flying around here trying to get all our my major projects done before I return to work. Things have been pretty much insane in our household the last week or so. Next Tuesday is when I stop being an at home mommy, and back to work I go.

I have such mixed feelings about this whole thing. I really really enjoyed staying at home with my babies. I've never been a stay-at-home mom until Maci's condition forced me to stay at home. Incase you didn't know {I don't talk about it much, if at all} My family has a barbecue restaurant. I was twelve when my parents opened. Naturally, I've been working there for over half my life. It's been such a blessing to our family, and many customers have become like family. They've watched my siblings and I grow up, attending graduations, weddings, baby showers, etc. I miss them all too!

I'm really excited that everything has turned out...Maci will be starting Kindergarten next week, while Makenzie was able to return to her preschool {that she and Maci were enrolled in last year}.

These past eight months have really been life changing, and I will cherish the memories and lessons for the rest of my life!

So a long time ago, I posted nightmarish bedroom before photos. I then followed a little while later with progress photos. Sadly, I am still in progress mode, but I'll show a little more 'progress' photos!!

{{My biggest issue}}

Please excuse this photo! It is sheet change day around here, along with the laundry folding! As of right now? The laundry is all put away!!

The real reason I haven't really shown my bed??? I honestly don't care for it much. My hubby and I found it a long time ago at a thrift store for $20. I am in love with the foot board, but not so much the headboard.  This Saturday however we have major plans for it. Hopefully it will help me like it more. {would like to give the poor thing a chance!}

I don't like the blingy white of the sign either. I have plans for that bugger too!! Wish us luck! I hope to see this room finished soon!

Enjoying the beautiful sunny shine here in the PNW!!! Makes housework all the more easier!!



  1. Good luck on going back to work. That is always a life altering decision. I worked when my kids were young, too, but worked the hours they were in school so it was the best of both worlds...kinda...except I never had a moment to myself. I hope it goes great!

    Loving your bedroom and I'll be anxious to see what you do with your headboard. xo Diana

  2. Love your cozy desk set up! Looks like the perfect little corner to sit down and write, shop, and Pinterest {is that a thing?} in!

  3. Your bedroom looks great! :) Im so glad to hear that Maci is going to school and doing better!! xo

  4. Jessica! OMGoodness! I need to know the name of your family's restaurant! We are BIG barbeque lovers!

    The best thing about this is that life will return to a new normal for you.

    So wonderful to hear that Maci and Makenzie will be starting school next week.

    You and Mr Rabbit have been feathering your nest so beautifully. I LOVE your pretty corner!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Hi Jessica - just stopping by for a visit. LOVE what you're doing, and that you and your family are doing well too...Blessings...Arlene

  6. Hi Jessica,

    Your bedroom looks wonderful! I know it's hard at times to like things in our homes since we seem to see it everyday (I'm the same way), but it looks wonderful! :)

    And glad to know that little Maci is doing much better and that she is starting school soon - how wonderful is that?!?! :)

    As for the BBQ restaurant, I think that is AWESOME!!! :) My fam is big on BBQ!!! Anyway, wishing you a wonderful Sunday!


  7. Oh I'm swooning over your bedroom corner with the desk. I love your muted color palette! I have that color palette downstairs on my main level, but my bedroom has more color. I may eventually switch it too. I'm sure your bed will get it's proper makeover and you'll love your entire room. I think we all have something in our house we'd like to change. Good luck in going back to work tomorrow. At least you're getting to work in a familiar place with people you already know. That beats the alternative!


I really enjoy reading your feedback!! Thank you very much for taking the time to write me a note!! xo ~*Jessica
