My regulars know that I've just had my
firstborn leave for college.
I did what all self-respecting
moms do when their kids
vacate.

I had my way with his bedroom! 

YESSS! 
High fives and fist bumps, I'm so happy
with the room!


His bed had previously, a dark chocolate fuzzy
comforter which I tossed. 
I had the internets buzzing yesterday because
I actually put quilts in shopping carts on several 
websites...but never made the purchase
tightwad that I am. 
Their ads are still begging from the sidebars ...
"buy meee, buyyyyy meee!" 

What I DID do was flip OUR quilt from it's 
rose-covered side, to it's striped side.
THEN stole the pillows off the couch
(nodoby kept them there anyway...always scattered
and unorganized making me crazy)
and placed them on the quilt. 
Perfect match...how weird! 

ALSO I added a featherbed to the top and
you can't tell but this is a HIGH bed which 
I love...you can sink down deep 
in that thing.


It's not so feminine that he will mind snoozing
there (I know he'll be wiped out from his college weeks!)
(he might not want to go back to school, huh?)


The larger globes all came from Goodwill.
The little ones belonged to my dad and my uncle. 


My boy never played baseball but mama likes
these under glass!


WHAT?!  He didn't take the Uncle Vinny bag
to school? 
Mama got it at Forever 21 for him..haha...a "girl's store" 
no, really it has a dude's department too...and my boy
has used this bag for overnights...he says he doesn't
know what the big deal is about the Uncle Vinny bag...
gosh! 


This is the spot in which to view turkey families 
as they snack upon our backyard worms and bugs. 

Only a few months and my second boy will 
fly the coop, giving me freedom 
to do what I want with his room as well.

Listen. 

I could be sitting in a corner rocking back 
and forth sucking my thumb over these
departures! 
Decorating their rooms soothes me a wee 
bit and helps me with my overall
MOJO. 

How is yours?
