MaLeisa = Rules

Okay, so I like rules. I like order.
I like everything to have a place.

Is that such a crime?
Everyone can answer this except for 1, 2, 3, and 4.
Oh yeah. And The Husband.

But that's not the reason for this post. This post is to proclaim proudly to the world that I have FINALLY started decorating our constantly-under-construction house in Harmony Park.
One decoration down, 37 to go.

So even though the walls aren't completely painted and the floors aren't completely done. The creative juices are flowing and the decorating madness has begun.

I'm taking baby steps.

When I told 2 about this idea I stole from somewhere in blogger land, she rolled her eyes
and said "Great. Just what we need around here. More rules."

But a couple canvases, some fabulous paper,
and a bottle of modge podge later.....she wasn't rolling her eyes any more. Instead, I know for a fact that she is surprised and impressed that I still have the decorating magic in me. I mean, her and I both know it's been a LONG time since I have had my hands on a house in which I can truly do whatever I want .

And anyway, I like to think that the listed rules are not rules at all.

Instead, they are inspiration. Inspiration to live our best lives.
Always Tell The Truth
Keep Your Promises
Believe In Yourself
Use Your Manners
Work Hard At Everything You Do
Be Kind To Everyone
Love and Encourage Your Sisters
Say Your Prayers

And yes. They are hanging in the girl's bathroom.

Because let's be honest. That is where they spend most of their time making themselves fabulous.

And in my Mother's heart, I know they are already inspired.
