Sleeping in Hell - A post comprised mostly of pictures *Click on photos to enlarge and view captions

We always knew that at some point we'd need to change sleeping arrangements. For the most part the twins have enjoyed sleeping in the same room. Now that they're seven and quickly growing and changing we figured it was approaching that time.

So this is where we began on a cold and rainy Sunday

When hubby suggested we paint, I was overjoyed. I was suprised that he was that ambitious. If you know my hubby, you know he is excellent at home projects but generally hates doing them. Recognizing a moment to be seized, I quickly sent the Mr. and my son,B to go get some blue paint (the original color the hubby suggested). Just before they left, the Mr. joked (as if it were the most ridiculous notion ever) about how B wanted his room to be red and orange. Ha! I scoffed. Wouldn't that be something!? (read: hideous and no way in hell- no pun intended)

They came home with red and orange paint anyway.

And began designing

I wasn't getting it at this "during" stage

Then there was this:

Which even though it wasn't even close to my first choice of paint jobs/colors/designs has made a little boy very happy.

And it ain't hurtin anybody. So stop judging!


Next week, we turn a little girls room in to a diva rockstar palace.

Lawd help me.

Okay, um... wow! That's amazing! Sure, the flames of hell aren't a mother's first choice (apparently) but how cool is that?!? He'll be the envy of his friends!

Cannot wait to see the diva room!

My Mom & Dad let me paint my room however I wanted (Big, multicolored checkers for me- it WAS the 80's, you know). I still think that was the coolest thing ever. And why not? It's just paint- it's not like your Hubby & the little man went out and got matching face tattoos.

Or...did they? Cause, that would be BADASS.

Face tattoos...not yet but the way those two are I expect it any second.

Shh...don't tell anyone but I think the paint job is brilliant especially for being done free hand.

Again not my first choice but growing on me quickly.

I think this is AWESOME! Your little guy is so lucky to have such a fun room...although I have to wonder what the bedding is going to look like!

You are definitely an awesome mom. There is no way in hell I could have supported that.

However, I secretly think that's awesome.
