It is almost February!!! I seriously cannot even believe that. I was telling Mark last night that we are one month into 2018 and I have not eaten good for one solid day and haven’t hit the gym even once. Grrrr… Between being out of town way too much and our unseasonably cold weather here in Georgia, my motivation level has basically been a zero. Zero point zero zero. Hitting the gym tonight though and just praying I don’t die. Like for real. My sis and I have a personal training sesh every Monday night but I haven’t been able to make a single one yet this year. This week is my week though! Getting back on track and getting back into my schedule groove. I do much better with eating right and exercising when I am in a routine and am in town for long enough to merit hitting the grocery store. Which also hasn’t fully happened in 2018. Hope your 2018 resolutions are going a wee bit better than mine. Argh.
As you can probably imagine, themed decor is not my personal design jam. To be completely honest, I actually created Addison’s Wonderland (my bedding company) back in 2009 to create a beautiful bedroom for my first born daughter Addison that did not involve circus animals, Disney characters or zoo creatures. So the fact that this blog post even has the word “themed” in it means I love my kid A LOT! LOL!
Fast forward nine years from the creation of Addison’s Wonderland and Addison is now ten years old with an absolute obsession with all things Harry Potter. From pajamas to Legos to board games and even her school book bag, she asked for everything Harry Potter for Christmas. Well, that and a dozen more book series since she has read all eight or nine Harry Potter books a dozen times. Literally. And since she likes to pretend that she lives in Ravenclaw and we are just her wee old muggle parents ;-), I decided to give her bedroom a little touch of Hogwarts charm for Christmas this year. Nothing over the top of course, but just enough to make her bedroom feel a little more magical…
P.S. Yes, I still need to order a bedskirt AND we still haven’t fixed the right side of her canopy. Just had to share the two things that drive me bonkers about this room reveal. That y’all probably don’t even notice. LOL!
XOXO, Brittany Hayes
