Harper Bloom is 3

Harpe's THIRD birthday was last Friday. I can't believe this sweet little thing is already 3!!
Her big "Dora" birthday party is this coming weekend, but this weekend we went up to RJ's parent's and had a fun little party for her. We had an awesome time!

She's been excited for her birthday for months so I'm actually glad we are spreading it out over 2 weekends because it makes me sad that it's over! What will she talk about once her "Dora party" is done?

Of course both kids enjoyed the yummy cupcakes.

Then we opened a few presents. She got some cute dress up clothes from grandma and grandpa. She loved it!

Oh, Harper Bloom. You have brought so many laughs and blessings into our lives. You have entered that hilarious toddler stage where pretty much everything you say makes us laugh. You are goofy, feisty, sweet, loving, daring, and just plain ol' precious. Your best friends are boys. Cute boys. Oy. Already praying about that one.

You are so sensitive and so cuddly. Just telling you "no" breaks your sweet little heart and you just want to cuddle. I love that. I will for sure miss that. 

I so look forward to the years ahead of getting to know you even more. 
You're my baby girl! 
We love you and are so beyond thankful that God created you.

Big Girl Room

Long time, no blog. I know! So much has happened and so much is currently happening that I don't even know where to begin, so I'll start with a really no-brainer post like Harper's big girl room. Okay? 

Since my little girl is almost 3 now, she was ready for a new room. And I was really ready to finally put up all the vintage treasures I've been collecting for the last 6 months. 

I painted the walls white. And I love it! 
The ceiling got a coat of a dirty yellow with little scallops all along the top:

Literally, the only thing that is new, new is the bed skirt and the pink paint. Everything else is from garage sales, goodwill, online garage sales (facebook) and thrift stores.
Now that, my friends, is being green.

When I was little I used to love playing with nik naks. My sister had a bunch of them on her bookshelf and I always snuck in there to play. I loved it! So that was my inspiration for Harper. I wanted there to be lots of little treasures for her to look at and play with as she gets older that are special only to her room. 
And yes. I'll admit it. This is my dream room too.

This clown is my favorite ($5!!) find. Although I'm pretty sure his eyes are looking in different directions every time I go in there.

Below is another ($5!!) find. The kids have already loved playing with the little dolls and clothes.

Gumball machine from Goodwill.

This dresser was already in her room and I painted it "Perfect Strawberry". It ended up being more hot pink than I was expecting. It took me about 5 days to like it, but now I really love it. I distressed it a bit too.

The headboard came from a friend's garage sale that I also painted and distressed. That crazy beautiful quilt was $4 at a garage sale, and some pillow-y goodness thanks to goodwill and a friend's swap event.

The curtains also survived from the nursery. They're super sweet.

My first bunting project. I'm kind of addicted now. I got the lamp at Goodwill and RJ rewired it for me.

This "Bloom" plate also survived from the nursery.

Sweet red chair and a cradle for her babies.

I got this chalkboard/dry erase board for $5 off of a facebook swap group. Excellent!

This wall below is the only part I'm not loving. I just can't decide.

However, I loooove this little lady on the wall for all her niks and naks. So cute!

That's all for now. Thanks for visiting! Now on to some major life stuff for me so I best be going. Have a great week, all!
