Dorm room pics and Thanks!

Goodness Gracious..... I have been super busy with getting Jenna settled at College and then we had to get my Son ready to return to school Today!! Boy, will the house ever be quiet!! I took Jantzen to get a few things to wear for school and then grabbed some supplies for his classes. When the kids get older it seems the teachers don't give you a list of supplies until they have been in class a couple of day. It is not my favorite way of doing things. I am not sure why they do it this way but we really can't do anything about it LOL. I just really appreciate those teachers who do put out a supply list when we are enrolling! I feel like I am sending him to school Unprepared! HA..... Anyway, Spending a day with him is always a treat! We got to have lunch with my Mom which is always wonderful!

Mom also went up to help us move in Jenna....We all had so much fun and although we were there for a REALLY long time LOL, and NO! I didn't drag it out AT ALL....ok....Maybe just a little ;) We finally got everything unpacked and in order for her. Mom and I even found some Orange hangers 10 for $1.00!!! (we got 70) and redid all of her closet in them! It looks so cute and that is the one thing I didn't get a picture of! :(

Anyway, here is her dorm room.....

This is her side of the room. Her little desk with her New Mac and IPad 2 and OF COURSE her princess poster :) My little Priness LOL
She also took her colors and coloring book *GRIN* She is such a little girl at heart! Anyway it is so cute and cozy!

This is the door into their room....Jantzen thought it would be awesome to put the orange bandana on the door and they Loved it! Way to go Jantzen :)

This is the girls make up and hair station. They don't have a sink in their room or a bathroom. That is all just down the hall...She got some flip-flops to take showers with. I remember all to must have shoes ON to shower in the dorms HAHA! We got her refrigerator and microwave up and going and their Tv and DVD Player. They are SET!!

She is doing really good! This is howdy week so there are no classes but a lot of fun activities for the college campus as well as in their own dorm and these are planned for the students each day. She LOVES the Workout facility! I got a text yesterday that read..... I burned 600 calories !!! She told me before she moved down there "I will NOT gain the Freshman 15!!" LOL I believe her! :)

Thank you all so much for the kind words on my previous post! It is certainly an adjustment for each of us! You all make it so much easier with your Love and Encouragement.... Thank you each and everyone of you!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥


The Real Me!

Her corner of the world looks so cute! LOVE the poster she has hanging. I hope she keeps that childlike heart!
You know we homeschool but I still get excited when the school supplies go out. We don't have to buy half of what the school makes you buy but I think I still go a little overboard by buying 10 boxes of crayons just because I love em'. LOL!
Love you my friend.
Have a fabulous day.

It looks so cute! I knew it would...

Ah, the days of getting ready with your roommate (and a few stragglers) in a little bitty fun! I hope she absolutely loves it there and learns a lot to boot. :)

Love and hugs. I hope the quiet will restore you today. <3

Here room is so great! Full of perfect touches to make her feel at home. What an adventure she is beginning. So happy and excited for her! ♥


It looks as if Jenna's college career is off to a good start. Her room looks great, and I hope she does avoid the Freshman 15 (my daughter didn't).

Hope you are doing okay, Mom.... It's a big change for your little gal.. She'll do great --and so will you.. Looks like a great room, and so homey already.


We are in the same boat. We take our Rachel to college this Tuesday. It's going to be so hard to come home. But, I am going to focus on the fun of getting her first dorm room decorated and the joy that is on her precious face. Love the orange and black. Rachel went with pink and black.


:) Makes me think of my freshman dorm. I hope she has a wonderful year! Glad you could go help and be part of the fun memory. You must miss her so much! Praying for you!

Pain to Purpose

I'm sorry I haven't been visiting! This post reminded me so much of my NAU days a decade ago, which coincidentally was about the same amount of time it took me to lose my Freshman 15! PIZZA! Chicken strips...and no sleep... you know, the good ole days!
Hope you have a great weekend,


Her room looks beautiful! I can imagine your whirlwind of emotions. You must be so proud!



I am hoping to get Caitlyn enrolled in college soon. She is considering waiting til we make our move to Washington or Oregon, we are still undecided at this point and waiting on some answers to prayer. For now she is researching her options there and working diligently to make sure she can avoid taking out any student loans.

Can't wait to show her Jenna's pictures! She's almost all by herself as most of her friends are making the move to college already. Thanks for posting this and hopefully it will encourage her even more.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat


Love, Love, Love Jeanna's room. After reading the above post about her bump in the road, I am sure that she loves coming back to her cozy room and thinking of all the love that went into making it HER room. Hoping today is already a great day for her.
