Hey Pals.

Finding the joy and the humor in my everyday adventures. Join me for real life solutions, thrifty deals and girl talk.

A man's man nursery for Monty

I wanted Monty's room to be a light, playful but not cluttery. The Pal is a no nonsense man so with his help I avoided buying excess that would just clutter the small room. Dane always has a practical solution to everything. Changing pad? Just change him on the floor. 15 wash cloths? Just use five and wash those. Diaper Pail, gross, just no. This was easy for both of us to decide, they always seem to stink, right?

Here is the completed room. We absolutely love how it turned out.
