I'm off to see the . . .

mouse, as in Mickey Mouse.

I just booked my ticket to Orlando for the CTMH 2013 convention.  It's my first convention and I'm so excited to go. 

Last year when I heard it would be in Disney for 2013 the plan was for Albert and Aaron to go with me or meet me there after the convention, but we just aren't able to do it this year financially.  I then decided I wasn't going without them but Albert thought I should go.  Luckily I found 3 wonderful consultants who were looking for a roommate and I signed up.  I am looking forward to meeting Brenda and Joann from Ohio and Tina from Texas.

The convention is at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and we are going to have an extra day to visit the parks, none of the others have been to Disney before so I'll be the expert, even though it's been 20 years.

I'm going to miss Aaron terribly while I'm gone but I'll be able to bring him home lots of treats.

Aaron's room inspiration

Here's where I found some inspiration for Aaron's new room.

I love the bright colours in this Pottery Barn bedding

This is a great idea from the Naptime Decorator  I'd like to frame some of Aaron's favorite books.

This is a really cool idea from Houzz I don't think Aaron has this many cars but he's on his way.

I really like this closet idea from I Heart Organizing

Finally I'm going to attempt stripes on a wall like these on HGTV

Next time I"ll share the paint colour and his new bedding

Aaron's Room before pictures

This is what Aaron's room looked like when we moved in to the house, as you can see it isn't a very big room.

We repainted it and got it ready for a baby boy,

When Aaron was 2 we converted the crib to a toddler bed and decorated the room in Thomas the Train, then last year he moved into a mates bed and I just bought a simple plaid comforter because he didn't show any interest in the boy themes you could buy bedding in (ie Cars, Spiderman, etc)

Now it's time to redo his room, since it hasn't been painted in over 5 years and he now loves Mario and Yoshi that will be the theme.
