My Sweet Man..



A couple of weekends ago, my Sweetie Man was over my parents house picking something up while my brother and his family were over there. My mom mentioned in front of the whole gang how my Sweetie was going to FINALLY let me paint our room PINK. Well, actually HE is painting our room PINK. He won't let me paint because he says I'm too messy and I don't clean up. I can't help it (wink,wink). I'm a damsel in distress when it comes to manly things like that. I want him to feel like MY hero. Back to the story... While everyone was making fun of him, because soon he will be sleeping in a PINK room. Needless to say, all the manly jokes started going around. The ladies were asking their hubby's why they can't have a pink room and mentioned how they wanted a pink bedroom, but the MEN said NO! My love, my hero, my strong man, my handsome hubby--said--If Wendy can sacrifice to have and be the Mommy to his six children he thought it was a SMALL sacrifice to have a PINK bedroom. (SIGH) Now you know why I fell hard for this fella and knew I HAD to marry him the moment I laid my blue eyes on him.

Picking out paint is almost as hard as picking out baby names. SO MANY to choose from, BUT--I had help. Jo Anne at Vintage Rose Collection is amazing and she is SO HELPFUL. Luckily, I live in California where they sell the color PINK she uses.

I stumbled across your blog on my journeys, its lovely.
What a sweet man to do the painting for you. I painted our bedroom pink last year and I love it, hubby doesnt mind it either.
I think "it takes a real man to sleep in a pink bedroom".
Cant wait to see it.

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Well, I'm looking forward seeing the finish room, and I'm hoping you will post it. I'm glad your husband is going to let you do it. I'm very fortunate because my man doesn't care what I do to my home, as long as he has the garage.

Loretta said...

Happy Valentine's Day! enjoy your pink room!

A true prince ALWAYS comes to his Princess' rescue!!! I used to only do manly decorating, then one day when I brought home a comforter with roses on it, hubs mentioned he liked it "I grew up with flower stuff" he said. Now I just get what I like, and HE likes that I like it:)

Thats a REAL man:)
