Want it Wednesday

Why is it that if you hand a football to a male that they have an innate ability to aim, throw, and hit their target 99.9% of the time???

Why is it that if a boy receives a gun for Christmas, he has an innate ability to shoot his target without EVER shooting a gun before?
(GTO shooting a gun for the first time. He was very good at hitting the can.)

That being said, why is it the male species can NEVER hit this target??? What do you moms do that have all boys??? We have four toilets in our house and I can barely keep up with wiping up the messes.
One of my goals for 2010 is to finish decorating our house. We moved into our house in August and I feel like it has been one thing after another keeping us busy. I am writing it all down here so that I have some accountability of staying focused on the task. My goal is to tackle AT LEAST two projects a month and of course share them with you. I think this week my home improvement project will be THIS...

Do you think it will help?

I thought I would start out by sharing a few of my favorite things around our house. Can a girl have too much animal print in her house??? YES! But hopefully I don't, although I do have it scattered throughout our entire house.
I love anything with a damask print including these canisters.
One of my absolute favorite things in our house is this bass fiddle that sits in our formal dining room. It belonged to my husband's grandfather. I never met him, but I have heard that he could pick up and play just about any instrument. I think that he passed on some of those fabulous musical genes to GTO. Thank you, Grandpa Roberts.

This is one of my favorite chairs in the house.
Love this set of bottles that sit atop our mantle.
I was planning to start the decorating in our master bedroom. We received new bedding for Christmas (thank you mom!), but it is back ordered until March. I am going to keep the bedroom very neutral with shades of browns and creams. I can't wait to get started.
Since this is "WANT IT Wednesday", I thought I would share my current want. I love these pillows, and think I will order them for our bed.

Ok, I have to know, is that an actual product, the toilet target, or is that a digitally enhanced image? If that is not a real product, someone could market little peel and stick toilet targets and make millions!

Give it up! Boys will never make it in the toilet target or not. It looks good though, just not practical for 30+ year olds!!

My boys still sit because daddy hasn't gotten around to teaching them aim yet. Although I heard cheerioes make fun, flushable targets!

Girl you have an amazing eye for decorating! I love everything you have done so far! I just ordered my very first matching bedroom set! It is antique black. Any suggestions on bedding? My brown and gold bedding does not match. I am also considering making the bedding.

Oh yeah, where do you shop for such cute decor?

The boys in my house are required to sit when at home and stand when in public. Even the grown up one:)

I can see why that chair is your favorite, it's georgeous and looks so comfy.
