This room makes me super happy. So clean and bright.  Thank you Heffe for your great handy work on the beds.  Found Sea Urchin fabric and made 30x30 pillows. They are huge and perfect for a snuggle with a good book. The turkish towels were $10 from ebay and Sofia and Rubi are excited about their photo wall (4x4's from Target). Reading lights from Ikea add a touch more of gold. 
The brightest color ever! The girls loved it for a good 10 years. Bye, bye pink, you won't be missed.
 My Heffe, is the best! Builds me whatever I dream up and can afford.

 The black, pink and white continues
 I did about 10 coats of paint.

Although it was cramped and bright pink, there lives little girls who love to sing, dance and have fun. That is truly what matters
BUT... I'm a sucker for clean, white and happy.
Love her so much but most days it looks like this. At least she is studying.

Having a big family has forced us to become beach addicts. Don't get me wrong, we've always loved the beach but knowing you can pack a lunch and have fun for hours for free doesn't get any better.
Coastal decorating is a tricky one but I'm on a mission to add some of it in our home. Maybe some more plants and some fun art will do the trick. I'm not gonna go all Tommy Bahama on my fam but I die over a banana leaf print. 

I just ordered this vintage LIFE print. I can't handle these four girls in these suits. I hope one day our girls will be meeting at the beach surfing, laying out or whatever. 
Love the quilt over the white couch. Actually, this whole photo is my vibe.
Just need to finish it off with this view! I mean…come on!

My phone is filled with photos from 6 people who love to click and snap. I love being able to go through and save some memories up on this. It also makes for a very thankful heart of how blessed we are for where we live and who is in our lives.
Adventures of jr. high has opened so many doors for social sofia. She still rocks at waterpolo but loves cheer and volleyball. 
 Cousin love
 Thankful that we live in the most beautiful area and get to be at the beach when its snowing elsewhere.

Birthday for me, Bella and Rubi. Another reminder of all the RAD people in our life.

 November and no wetsuit for me. Thank you Jesus for where I live!
 Party wave with Bella and her girls

 Soccer days for days
The Bella's made all-stars…so proud!
Family dinners
 New friends and lots of after school playing.

 Camping, good friends and the sunset.  LOVE!

I love letting the girls decorate their space. This art wall will be every changing with 5 and 10 year old art. 
Can't wait to put some roman shades up and the swing arm lamps. My little book worm will just love that for her late night reads.
Heffe is the best and is helping me give Sofia and Rubi a makeover.

The new room will have a "coastal chic" feel as Sofia put it. So we had to visit Bliss in CDM for inspo. These plants are so welcoming, I just love it!

This little linen and nailhead table would be the easiest DIY. We may do a similar version for a piano table.

She was in serious covet mode here. This girl loves a cozy bed and loves to snuggle me although she is going on 13. 

 These tables and floors...
 There will be a touch of gold so we love the pillows and blue with the fabric headboard. 
 Sofia took this for Bella. Our little Bells goes crazy over crystals and books. And we just gave her some bookshelves what better way then to display them together. 
 And off to Anthro. with another daughter.
 This little fox hook, to cute. All I can think of is that song, "What the fox say, neneneneneneee…"
 I spelled out READ for Bella for her shelves. At $20 a book we'll have to save up or make our own.
 This rug at Z galore was on sale for $200. It was super soft and pretty big. 
 And a date night to end our window shopping night. So fun hanging with my girls individually.
