i need your help!!

okay, as some as you may know, we are in the process of becoming foster parents. this is something we have been working on for a while and it looks like we may have our licence by the end of the month...maybe. :)

anyway, i am in need of some help from y'all. we are needing to get bedding and such for our foster child or children and i don't know what to do. we are open for either girls or boys but don't want to have to get 2 of each "just in case". and since we have done the girls' room up all cute, we think that any child placed in our home equally deserves a nice looking room. so what i need from all of you creative people with that flair for decorating are ideas that are gender neutral. we don't need anything super detailed, but something that looks nice. we are being licenced for children between the ages of 3 and 10...(girls or boys, as stated previously)

so please, pile on the ideas...from color combos to even themes if you can think of them. (i would just be happy with a good color combo with a cute way to incorporate with paint)

here is what we have done with the girls' room:

so as you can see, we don't mind putting extra effort into it, just as long as we don't have to redo it often :)

so, lay 'em on me!

tag!! i'm it again :)

10 years ago:
I was going to MCC and learned to love the computer and it’s social aspects. I became completely smitten with a guy from school…my first love, as weird as that relationship was. My life revolved around my friends and my boyfriend. I had little direction and no sense of responsibility…ahhh to be so young and carefree :)

5 things on my to do list:
1. Clean & disinfect the house…I’m sick of sickness
2. Pick up noemi from the bus
3. Start decluttering again
4. Solidify a weekly routine to help keep me semi on top of things
5. Prepare my lesson for Sunday

Things I would do if I were a millionare:
*Help family
*Invest/ put in savings for kids for college, missions, weddings, etc.
*Pay off house and car
*Quietly make donations/help people out around us

3 bad habits I have:
1. Procrastinating
2. Worrying/ over-thinking things
3. Giving in to my sweet tooth

5 places I have lived:
1. Mesa, Az
2. Prescott, Az
3. Chino valley, Az
Sorry, haven’t moved around a lot

5 places I have worked:
1. Innate (tellemarking place where casey worked too)
2. Sequoia charter school
3. Global fufilment Services
4. The writing center at MCC
5. The children’s center at MCC

Some things most people don’t know about me:
*I didn’t get my license till I was practically 25…pathetic much? :)
*I still get really freaked out driving other vehicles and in unfamiliar areas...we are talking elevated heart rate and sweaty, shakey hands and everything!
*I don’t do well in furniture stores while pregnant…unless they are REALLY open (I get dizzy and claustrophobic)
*I occasionally have bad dreams about how i acted and my relationship with my family as a teenager
