In other news I put up Easter decorations. It's early I know but we'll be on vacation so I wanted to have them up long enough for me to get sick of them by the time Easter arrives. Besides, they really cheer up the house on the inside while we are buried in snow on the outside.
We had a trip to St. Louis a few weeks ago. It was a perfect weekend getaway. We did old time favorites like a trip to the Magic House and Botanical Gardens and of course, ate Imo's pizza twice. I went to the fanciest consignment store I've ever been too and splurged on Kaycee Hughes dress for Magnolia. I think she'll wear it to a tea party she has coming up soon. :)

George's room is finished for now. I got halfway through it then got hung up on the dresser color, lamps, and bookshelves. Thank goodness for George who came in and finished it for me. I knew the minute I bought new lamps I would find even more perfect ones at Goodwill so I decided that there is no rush. The paint color on the dresser will do for now and I cut up an old duvet to cover the back of the bookshelves. George filled the shelves and in the end, it looks great.
The rug was a great buy and it's so soft and plush.
I hope the next time I post, I will have a knew camera (hint, hint George)
