I thought long and hard about how to follow up yesterdays accidental post. As I said before I was afraid to publish that, it's a hard thing to just put out there. I'm so glad Blogger took it upon itself to publish for me. Your responses touched my heart in ways you will never know. I really thought you all would take one look at that post and run the other way. There is just no way for me to even express how much all of your words mean to me. Some of you shared your stories, some of you shared your support, all of your comments are precious to me.

So I came to the conclusion that there is no way I can follow up that post with anything other than my usual chit-chat, because this is a personal blog, and while my past issues make up a large part of who I am, they don't define me. Right now, this is what is on my mind...

When I got home last night, this was waiting for me. Oooooh. Aaaaaah.I love getting packages in the mail! I'm fairly certain I hummed "My Favorite Things" while I opened it.

This one was something special I had ordered for our place because my bedroom wall is BORING and looks like this.

I know! It's bad! We rent so I can't paint or you can bet your little booty it would not be plain old eggshell white.

Here is the first glimpse inside my delivery. Do you know what it is yet?
Feel free to ignore the books, they aren't part of it, I just needed something to hold it down with since it came out of the box rolled into a tube.
Here it is in the first step of the application process. I know, I know, it's almost sickeningly sweet. But I like it! And there's nothin' you can say about it! That's totally not true...does this look awful?

Anyway...step 2. (Really this is more like step 6, but I didn't take pictures of the WHOLE process. I am way to scatter-brained for that!
This is all I use my Bank of America credit card for, have I ever mentioned how much I am afraid of credit cards? I am. They scare me. Okay, so you smooth it all down, get all the air bubbles out, then comes the fun part!

Peeling!!! I love peeling things off. Except sun burnt skin. That makes me gag and refuse to look at my shoulders for two weeks.

Here it is. In all its sappy glory.
Here is a better view, we are in the process of shopping for a bookshelf for that wall.

Please feel free to ignore the level and directions on our bed. I'm a perfectionist like that (ha!).

In case you are wondering, I ordered this from here. They have so much more to choose from, I would probably cover every inch of our place in them if I could. What do you guys think? Me? I love it, and since it's my bedroom I guess I get final say, but I need to know what you think. Hear that? NEED to know. (Because I did something similar in my dining room but want your opinions before I show you).


  1. That is so neat. I'd love to have something like that for the lake house. Does it come off the wall or is it on there forever?

  2. ahh GOOD QUESTION! i should have said that in the post, they SAY it will come off. Im sure that it cant be used twice, but it does feel like with a little force it will peel off of the wall.

  3. I like it. I, too, hate blank walls. That looked like an easy way to jazz up the room. You did good!

  4. LOVE!!! How does your man feel about it? :-) So cute.

  5. I LOVE that!!! I am an Etsy freak so I definitely had to check out their shop. I am so going to have to buy something from there. Thanks for the tip!!!

  6. thanks ladies!

    Matt likes it! well honestly, he is probably too sweet to tell me if he didnt like it, but he says her likes it. He is just happy that our room isnt pink and/or frilly I think.

    Ill post the diningroom picture later!

  7. Oh, I love that. My daughter would too. I was thinking I sure hope she mentions where she got that, and viola, there is the link. Thanks.

    I think that is very cute, and how refreshing to look at those words when you wake up. Now....show the rest of the story!

  8. oh, I love that! I need one!

  9. Totally dig it! A friend of mine has her home covered with decals of roosters and windows with a view of roosters and whatnot. Cute in her place, just not my thing. But I've always liked the idea of decals. You chose well Daniel-son.

  10. I love it! It's cute, but not cutsie. Hey Bekah, caterpillar poop!!!!LOL

  11. Hey Beckah - this is AWESOME! You did suh a great job with the decal and instructions! You rock!


    PS - I have this same decal in my bedroom and Billy says he likes it too - but just like Matt I think he's just happy our room isn't all girly. LOL

  12. I love those stick-on words! I've been eyeballing them for some time now...but until my bedroom is painted, I'm patiently biding my time. So cute!

  13. I love it.....
    I just placed "All because two people feel in love" above my stairs where we have all the family photos.
