Countdown & treats

{3 more days!!!} {The Better Homes & Gardens team made the adorable glittered construction paper chain garland over the chalkboard for us & I love it!!  It’s one of those things I’d planned on making more of but didn’t.  Glad we saved it.} Yesterday our babysitter.

Reality Check: What does it cost to furnish a room?
