I love waking up each Saturday and pouring over the many pages of beautiful pink posts and pictures and I have made some nice friends too!!

In case you don't know pink is my favorite color (along with green)!!

It even take better in my pink polka dot mug!!

Did I mention I hate my foyer floor?

As we are working around the house, something will get fixed and cleaned and other things happen!!! Bad things!!!
Like you find more work that needs to be done and more things need upgrading, which leads to more money!!!
The whole house has wood floors and I love them!! But my foyer....... now in my opinion it should all be matching. Hubby at first, didn't want to put the wood there because of the moisture by the door, but I guess my constant bickering about the floor is getting him to change his mind.
So now one weekend he will lift up the 2 layers of linolium and break the ceramic tile underneath, level the floor and put down the wood.
Now we run into a small problem.... I bought the floor at Sams Club last year and I need to make sure they still have it!!!
So thats my job right now.... off to Sams to find my floor and hope they still carry it!!!
I'll update you all on my adventures!!

So the weekend we finished up with touch ups and I got a great idea for the foyer doors. We have our front door and the garage door here and I wanted crown moulding, but as we all know that can be pricy.
So I - yes- me, myself and I- came up with the idea to make our own crown moulding for above the door.
At Lowes I bought 1"x 4 and the pretty blocks and we made our own.
How do you like them?

I think they add detail and a more custom look to the house.
After we finish the floor in the foyer, then I am on my way to find a new front door.
Going to any home improvement store would be too easy for me!!!
I am going to set off to save a few dollars and look on craigslist and thrift stores with building materials to find my perfect door!!
A beautiful door with an oval window !!!!
Can't wait to replace the door!!! I'm sure it will look great!!!!
So off I go to on my adventures of making our house a home!!!

Pink Saturday

Welcome to Pink Saturday here at whinenroses.
Another fine weekend and I can not wait to surf all the lovely blogs to see all the pink pretties of the day!
Isn't this little book so sweet? It is written by the Dutchess of York Sarah Ferguson. I plan on putting together a little tea party with my little one and reading the story to her. We can dress up and eat some pink and white pastries and enjoy our chocolate milk!!

Here is a picture of the window in my dining room. I found the valance at a thrift store for 2.00 and fell in love with it. The sweet pink roses fit my decor so well. Had there been two available I probably would have put them in the little girls room.

Angels...angels....I have them all throughout my house. You can never have too many angels in your house!!!

I just love this pink glass bowl!! I found it at Goodwill for 5.00 and knew I had to have it!!
I don't know much about it, but if anyone does feel free to leave me a comment so I can start looking for other pieces like it at local thrift stores.
This week has been another hectic week. We are painting the trim around the whole house little by little. Only two of the bedroom were already done so we still have a few more rooms to go.
Our master bathroom and bedroom are finished, the small hall leading to the master, part of living room and the foyer are just about complete!! Yipee!!!
We only have the dining room, kitchen, living room, hallway, and 1 more bedroom and bathroom to finish!! Almost there!!!
I am getting so tired easily these days and we found out I am now 14 weeks along in my pregnancy. Hopefully next month or so we'll know if our new bundle of joy will be a boy or girl!!!
I am so excited!!!!
Well finally I would like to say a big Thank you to Beverly at for allowing me to be a part of Pink Saturday!!!
I would love to be in it every week, but life has been a little crazy lately and I am trying to not spend as much time on the computer and more time on the house and with the kids before the new baby gets here!!!
Happy Saturday!!!
Love and hugs,
