Here are some other Revere Pewter rooms painted by like-minded neutral lovers!





Very pretty, right? I absolutely can't wait to see it on our walls. I think it's going to feel like a new house! We're going with white semi-gloss trim and moulding. All paint has been purchased and is waiting for the painters, who are starting the project on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, check out this atrocious/outrageous/unbelievable/awesome mum I spotted at Scott's football game on Friday. Not familiar with Texas homecoming mums? Check out my post on Friday. I was on mum-watch at the game when I spotted this masterpiece.

Let's just say she attracted a lot of stares as she dragged that thing past everyone in the stands. Poor girl. The boy who bought her that definitely subscribes to the "everything is bigger in Texas" mindset. Rumor has it he was trying to make his old girlfriend jealous by buying this new girl the biggest mum he could find. Awful, I know. I feel like a high school gossip reporter right now.

I sat with a friend at the game whose friend is the official "mum lady" of Flower Mound High. My jaw dropped to the floor when I found out her friend's mums have a minimum price of $175. That's right, a minimum price of $175. WHAT?! I remember mums going for $35 back when I was in high school in 2004. This friend's daughter got her mum from the official mum lady, and it featured Justin Beiber stickers, a Taylor Swift perfume sample and hidden candy pieces throughout. "She gets really creative with her mums," my friend explained. I hope so– you better get your money's worth when you're paying a huge amount of money like that!
