Mom Cave - more of the fun!

Showing more of the Mom Cave as it morphs into a space I can love! There are a few pinks
here in there in the hats, so thought I'd share.

I'm thinking about wearing this one to church one of these days.

Thanks for stopping by to visit, and don't forget to check out Pink Saturday, and Metamorphosis Monday at the below links!

Metamorphosis Monday - More of the Mom Cave

My metamorphosis this week is quick and simple. I love the idea of a plate holder with frames, and since I have 3 kids with families, it's perfect for their family photos. Problem is = I don't have anywhere to hang something with this style/pattern.
I can't remember where I got them, but they are a sturdy product, and everything hangs right, etc., so I need to MAKE them work for me!
They are cute, but too cutesy for me. To make them work in my room, they have to have a coat of spray paint and a little love!
I love the way this turned out, and can't believe for 99 cents for the can of black paint, and a wonderful husband to do the work - I got the best result.

Thanks for joining me as I head over to Met Monday at

Outdoor Wednesday - Cancun Vacation 2010

It took a little bit, because some of the members our group got to get "personal" with the TSA at the airport!
But we were happy to be out of the cold and wet, and into the warm and balmy weather of Cancun. We had never been to Cancun, and were really looking forward to it. Our resort that had been chosen 1 year before - caught fire 2 weeks before our arrival, so we were moved to a different one. One that was new, under 6 weeks since it's opening. We even enjoyed some of the funky things along the highway on the way to the resort.
We spent a lot of time at the pool, which was beach-side.
Sparkles like diamonds!
I noted that the color of the water is different on this side of Mexico than on the west side. I think the water is more turquoise on this side.
The landscaping and buildings were beautiful. Instead of a room, we each had a condo of our own, with either one or two bedrooms, two or three bathrooms, living/dining room and kitchen. We spent 5 days enjoying the sun and fun, the first week of December (my birthday!).
On our last morning, this is the little guy that watched us eat our breakfast, in the dining room. He's really intent in looking me over, as I am him! The waiting staff said it was a Spider Monkey.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, I love to have your feedback. I also love to share my photos and trip fun. Outdoor Wednesday can be found at the below link:
