I love Jimmy Fallon...part 5

I know you have all been waiting for this! Here are my favourite moments from the last few months from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Justin Timberlake was on the show...again. Those two are so funny together. Here is a history of rap 3 Sorry, I can't find this clip anymore!

BTW, these 2 cute boys were GQ's showmen of the year. Here are some more pics of them from their photoshoot.

The band that plays on latenight with Jimmy Fallon is called the Roots. They just came out with a new album. Here is a clip of Jimmy recording some stuff with them. Haha, I love it!

This next clip is awesome. Jimmy is interviewing Damian Lewis (Captain Winters from Band of Brothers), and Jimmy tells a story about his cameo in Band of Brothers. I love it. Here it is!

Every Wednesday night Jimmy does latenight hashtags. For those of you who don't know twitter, it is a list on twitter, where they give you the topic and fans send in the tweets. This weeks hashtag was #newholidaysongs. It is awesome! Check it out here! This one is gone too! It was so funny!

Chris Martin (the lead singer of Coldplay, for those who don't know), was on the show. He is such a nice guy, it was a good interview. Check out what happens here at the end of the interview.

For those who don't know, Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert were best friends for six months a while ago, and then they became eternal enemies for six months which ends on March 3. Stephen colbert gives Jimmy a valentine. See what happens here. I love those 2 together!

I love Jimmy, if you haven't noticed.

New colours for my girls room

Hello ladies. I don't think there are any men reading my blog so, hello ladies. I have been busy changing some things in Taylor and Hannah's room. Yes, they are in the same room now, well they have been since the summer. So now I have a guest room, so come visit me anytime!

Here is the blog post of what her room looked like before. The beginning is Taylor's old room (the new guest room). The second half is Hannah's room, there isn't really that much of a difference so don't get too excited.

Here is the fabric I saw on that inspired me.

So I bought a whole bunch of fabric to make quilts for their beds, to make pillow cases, and to put on the back of the bookcases.

I changed one of her bookcases into a dress up closet. I got the idea from Pinterest. She loves to dress up so this was perfect for her. The baskets have hair bows and headbands, necklaces, bracelets, shoes and any other dress up accessories. The picture on the shelf is of Hannah wearing a Snow White dress meeting the real Snow White in Disneyland, it is an adorable picture. I used some extra fabric to put over a bulletin board. And she loves the mirror to check out how she looks. This dress up closet does not usually look like this, it's usually super messy, believe me.

I spray painted these gold frames with white glossy Krylon. They turned out really nice.

I put some fabric in the back of the shelf and the dress up closet. I love this look. It is super easy to do too. The frame with the happy face is a frame for the girls artwork. Hannah did the happy face, and she is very proud of it.

Joe and I stained this corner shelf in the summer. It looks way better than it did before!

Then I started working on the quilts with the help of Andrea Barnes. Thanks so much Andy for helping me! She explained step by step how to make this. She even came over one night for a few hours, brought me a slurpee, ironed, and helped put it together. This is what one of them looked like once it was all sewn together.

After many hours of sewing, this is the finished product.

I didn't get a picture of the back side, but it is super soft grey minky.

The girls love their new quilts.

I still have some more work to do, and some more accessories I need to find. But this is the update for now!
