My Little Leprechauns

Hope everyone had a nice St. Patty's Day! We had friends over for dinner Friday night and had a traditional Irish dinner, Shepherd's pie. I found a pretty good recipie off pinterest and it was a hit! Saturday we treated ourselves to some TCBY and played outside. It has been absolutely beautiful here. I am so thankful for Spring, the good weather and my two little leprechauns of course!

Bennett at 2 Months

Baby B turned 2 months last weekend, and these pictures really prove what a difference a month makes. Amazing! He is so big, literally busting out of his onesies. He is still the calm, quiet and collected little man that we fell in love with the minute we laid eyes on him. He had his 2 month apt yesterday and he is considered a, "happy spitter, who's thriving." I will remember to tell him that we his is grown. :) Below are his 2 month stats and adorable pictures. I can't get enough of him!

Weight: 11 pounds, 10 ounces
Length: 23 1/2 inches
Head: 39cm

House Tour - Master Bedroom

This room, like the others isn't quite finished but I am very pleased with it so far. T.J. calls it the Michael Jackson room because of all the white, but I think it is heavenly. I really wanted a restful, clean and pretty space. The room is rather large, so were able to fit our old sofa in a space that will be a reading area. I hope to get a pretty coffee table, maybe lucite or gilded silver and some drapes one day. Oh, and definitely a chandelier if I can talk T.J. into it. :)

Well, here she is for now...

House Tour ~ Master Bath

This room will be renovated probably in a year or two. It's currently not high on our priority list. We made some quick inexpensive fixes so it's nice enough for now. We removed wallpaper, painted it a pretty soothing color, SW Sea Salt. We took out the old light and hung a really inexpensive chandelier. It's actually plastic, shhh don't tell. I switched the brass knobs to pretty glass ones, and we switched the faucets. T.J. actually did that, and I am very proud of him. ;)

One day I would like to replace the brass shower, and put up frameless glass, and if anything was possible I would love to replace our tub with a pretty white claw foot bath. Ahh dare to dream!

Oh, and sorry the pictures are kind of awkward... There are mirrors everywhere in there, not good for taking pictures, or taking a shower when you are 9 months pregnant! :)
