Wanna play under the stairs??

We are officially living in our new little place...I am loving it! There are a few extra special things that I am especially loving...the first is the "under-the-stairs-storage-area" (not sure why I just used quotations)?! Instead of storage...which we definitely could use...the cute Miss Allikaye trumps boxes and such. Here is her new playroom...Every time she opens the door she gasps! Ha! That's worth it right there...
I ordered the hanging things from Ikea...LOVE IKEA! I got hooked when we lived in Germany - and the closest one to Colorado is...ummm...Arizona, I think? But they have a fabulous catalog! Nothing stops me from shopping! Second fabulous thing about our new place...the first glorious stair...this is according to Miss Thing. She begs to get out of her high chair so she can eat on the first step...takes her books to the first step...and watches her Signing Time from...you guessed it...the first step! And yes, we did have stairs at our other casa, but apparently these are way better! Third, great thing...Allikaye has her own bathroom!! Woohoo for mama...I mean Allie. I bought these cute wall stickers from Glorious Target and really love them! They are removable and reusable! I might have gone a little crazy with the flower-ness - but I like it! I also love baby girl swimsuits - so I bought pink baby hangers and hung all A's pretty pinky suits all over the bathroom...here's one wall (not the best photography)... and daddy-o likes it because I didn't have to spend any money on decorations...
Have a wonderful long weekend! We have a busy one planned! It is our 5 year anniversary tomorrow! Ah! Yay for us! So I will be posting more about my lovey dovey story later! And it's also my Gramp's 80th birthday party tomorrow! Yay for him!! Love to ya!

I love the fun little play room under the stairs. Handy! The stickers are stinking adorable. I think my 1970's almond color tub needs a little girly-ness. Swimsuits... brilliant! Cute and smart. So, I went to Ikea today. Jealous? 15 minutes away. Sorry.
Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! I love the new place, the bathroom is too cute. The under the stairs kind of reminds me of Tom Cruise's house in Telluride (I saw it on Oprah). Suri has a play place under the stairs too!

The swimsuits are too cute....I would have never thought of that one!!! You could also use a hot pink sandbucket to hold handtowels or something by the sink (if you have space).
