Have you been to one of those wall to wall trampoline places with your children yet? If not you should! It’s a ton of fun and wears the heck out of your children. Lots of exercise and lots of smiles equals a win-win in my book.
Now, that I have you thinking about a big warehouse with trampolines on the floor and the walls, add some on the ceiling.
Then add a bunch of boys jumping all over the place.
Then add Legos, lots and LOTS of Legos all over the trampolines.
And Superhero action figures. You can’t forget those.
And Hot Wheels.
Throw in dirty clothes with emphasis on the stinky socks and that right there my friends is my house.
All boy! All. The. Time.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a ton of fun at the same time. I mean who DOESN’T like jumping on wall to wall trampolines!
But there are times during the day, week, month where I would like a little something that screams GIRLY!!!
Or a room in the house you could walk into and say to yourself, OHHHH a girl lovingly decorated this room and it looks like her personal space.
There is a TON of talk on the internet and within the media about men having a “mancave” or a “manland” in their home. But my whole house IS in fact the definition of “manland”.
What I need?? What I really really need is some small place girly that I can go to to get some “me” time. What? It could happen….someday right?
I’ve recently decided that that place, lovingly named as Chickville is going to be our Master Bedroom. The décor of which up until now could only be described as a clean modern day frat house.
I’ve started with small steps. Small steps like an actual bed frame with a headboard, and nightstands to match. Whhhhaoooo!!!
Then, just recently I purchase honest-to-goodness grown up, pretty bedding to go with the furniture!! It’s the little things, you know!
See! Pretty right? And dare I say sort of girly even!
It’s currently a work in progress, but it’s a FUN project and I’m excited!
But I would love your help.
Are you game?
Would you mind sharing your secrets with me?
Here’s what I’d like to know…
What would you do to a space in your home to make it your very own Chickville?
