Cheesy-Jalapeno-Popper-Baked-Penne-1{A-Pretty-Life}

Organizing A Shared Boys Bedroom

Shared-Boys-Room5-{A-Pretty-Life}

This spring my husband and I have been knocking a lot off our home to-do list!  We've repainted our office and master bedroom, and purged a lot of old clothes, toys and stuff we don't need.  And it feels so good! One room in particular though was bothering me...our boys room.  Last year we moved our boys into a shared bedroom, and it's been a great success thus far.  They're good together, we haven't had any sleep or sharing issues (knock on wood), and overall it's been great!  The only problem … [Read more...]
