Happy b-day Céline!!!! (edited)

Looks like blogger is acting up or something. Most people could not see the picture the I added in this post. I could see it and some other people could also see it but not everybody?! Weird! Seems like Blogger also had some trouble with spacing. Anyway - all seems better now! :)

Today is Céline's 10th b-day! Can't believe another year has come and gone. She's growing up way too fast now! She had her party on Saturday, so tonight we'll treat her to dinner anywhere she pick.

She used to have a fairy themed bedroom - all pink and lilac and girly. Recently she decided that it was time to change her room and the theme that she picked was horses - since she is crazy about horses and horse riding. I started looking for something pretty and appropriate for her age but after months of searching locally as well as in Johannesburg and Pretoria, I just couldn't find anything that she liked. I turned to my old Google buddy and reliable as it always is, it turned up with the most beautiful horse themed bedding. I got Céline to sit with me and choose something that she liked. The set that she chose was on the Amazon site. I proceeded to place the order but before I could finish, I got the message that they couldn't ship bedding to South Africa because of some manufacturers warrantee issue. Both Céline and I was so disappointed. Then I had this bright idea! I asked my bloggy and scrappy friend, Julie, if I could use her address to order the stuff. She was sooooo generous to agree to let them ship it off to her and then forwarded it on to me!!!

We got the packages in the mail a while ago and couldn't wait to replace the old bedding. Everything is up and it looks so pretty. We even got a new light fitting for her. We still need to paint the walls, get new curtains as well as a dressing table for the little cowgirl, so I don't want to take a picture of the unfinished room. I'll do so once the room is done. In the meantime, here's some pictures of the bedding that we ordered:

It looks even better i.r.l.

Once again - Thank you soooooooooooooo much Julie!!! We really appreciate it.

Love the bedding. Girly yet horsey at the same time. What are you going to do for curtains.

Well done on the 1 word thing! I gave up!

Oh Michelle, I can't wait to see your daughter's room make-over. Its amazing that you quickly found something overseas instead of in South Africa ... we are still little behind sometimes. I see there are a common thread with those accepting this award i.e. no one is great Facebook fans.!
