Isn't spring time the best? Green, green and more green. That's what it's all about. So lovely. So refreshing. But, as Kermit the Frog once eloquently said, "it's not easy being green."

Do you guys camp? Me neither. There's lots of stuff I'll do for my kids...I'll play Thomas the Train and My Little Pony. I'll apply bandages to boo-boos that are too small for the human eye to detect. I'll eat plastic food in a restaurant that cooks its' food over a double-A operated cooktop, and requires customers to pay up with Monopoly money. I'll even skip showering for days on end because I'm so busy busting my tush for my kiddos that I just don't. have. time. to. shower.
That's a lie...I'm really just too lazy to shower. And yes, I'm judging me too. This post contains some affiliate links. See my sidebar for full disclosure policy.
With this natural hesitation to shower, you'd think I'd be the perfect Mom to pitch the ol' tent and hang out in some sleeping bags under the stars. Nope. But, I can imagine the romanticism...the starry night, the smell of the campfire, the sound of the crickets. So, I came up with a Plan B. One that can allow for some of the camping glory, without all the camping grime.
Welcome to our indoor campsite, here in Sweet Cheeks' room.

Ahhh demo day. The day that all DIYers love more than all those that follow (with the exception of "reveal" day, AKA OMG I can't believe we've FINALLY finished this #$%@ project day)!
To recap, here's where we started...

But just to keep this all happy-happy-joy-joy-light-and-fluffy in here, we won't discuss that I feel like my parenting skills are about a C- average. Or that I need about eighteen times more patience than I currently am able to muster. We definitely won't talk about how I selfishly avoid any extra-curricular activities that require weekend commitment because that would mean even MORE time spent in my minivan and giving up my "down" time. I know.
Feeling better about yourself, perhaps? Glad I could help.

Sucker. That's my new nickname. I own it. In the blogging world, I'm discovering, there are lots of "things" and "link-parties" and "challenges" of this sort and that. And since I'm the new kid in school, when someone asks me if I want to join a club, my default it "YES!" I wanna be popular! I wanna be in the know! I wanna be "like the cool kids". And that my friends, is how peer pressure starts to get the best of us...am I right?
1. I love a challenge.
2. I despise our kids bathroom.
3. I'm a sucker.
This week, I'm unveiling the room as it was in the beginning. And then, let's wrap our heads around a bit of a plan.
This was the photo from the real estate listing when we bought our house in 2013. Let's describe this room in 4 words, or less, just for fun...ready?

1987. Man in the Mirror by Michael Jackson. What a work of art. Here's my version. "Woman in the Mirror".
Woman in a 1980's vintage builder's grade vanity mirror, to be exact. We had a lot of these lovelies in our house...

Stature is not something I'm blessed with. I'm short. Short and sweet. Well, mostly just short. And usually sweet. You know who else was short? Napoleon. And I had Napoleon in mind when we designed this bathroom here at The Heathered Nest.

I love useless throw pillows.
And, yup, I am aware that they are, in fact, useless. If John Gray did not write a chapter, or several, in his Men are from Mars books about this odd affinity women have with pillows, he definitely missed the boat. I certainly can appreciate that this "thing" we feminine types have for fluffy adornment of all shapes and sizes in our bedrooms could be the source of bewilderment for our masculine counterparts.
