Room Decorating In Effect!
Oh yeah, y’all don’t want none of this room! I put together Hope’s desk and matching chair today. I love it! 🙂 I’m hoping to score some cool shelves to put up around the desk to augment workspace. I was so excited to include the little Oxacan dog I bought Hope last month in San Antonio during a business trip. 🙂 I also picked up a laptop prop that matched the room color.
Now to order those decals and the TV wall mount. It’s coming along!

Nice!! I like it. But don’t go “all out” – probably will be a cool for y’all to go and shop together too! 🙂

Oh we have plans to shop for several specific items together. But she’s actually been very involved in picking out room details (paint colors, bedding, lighting). Some of her choices are less about aesthetic vision or taste, but really about testing me and whether I’m in this thing for the long haul. She thought that I would freak about having polka dots on a wall, when I brought her several kinds of dots to choose from she was blown away. Part of having many elements in the room before her visit is about demonstrating my commitment to her. She’s really anxious about whether this is going to work out. Seeing *her* room hopefully will allay some of her fear.
