|Bathroom Reno Reveal|

Posted on Updated on

Ya’ll… The guest bathroom isย done(~ish)! Done enough to post! [We lack painting the open shelving] It has been long over due, and I am so glad that it is functioning. Three people and one bathroom under one roof just doesn’t cut it for me. Especially with me being the only girl in the house! [I need my space.]

First off, please keep in mind that we gutted this bathroom [top to bottom], which is why it took fooooorrrreeevvver! So worth it in the end.

During Demo: What a mess!

Replacing and installing insulation in the subfloor.

Floor ductwork and platform built for AC unit.

Moving light fixtures and putting up headboard ceiling.

Shiplap everywhere! ๐Ÿ™‚

Floor leveler down and sanded. Flooring installed.

Cement board for tiled shower installed & remaining shiplap installed.

Tile Installation, Grouting and Sealing.

Finishing Touches.


And Voila! We have a functioning bathroom! :]

Until the next renovation,

|Spring Break 2017|

Posted on

What a month! It is speeding by so gracefully… Here’s a recap of some of my favorite memories AND a sneak peak of our newly renovated bathroom! (Plumber came over Spring Break and we have been super busy.)

This cute little farmer picked up his own apple for a quick snack. How cute is this?? I’ll post this DIY Pinterest find Farmhouse Produce Stand in a few days. Literally, one of the easiest DIY wood projects. 

Amidst our mini Spring Break trip we stopped at the Cosmic Cavern in Berryville, Arkansas! Rhett had an absolute blast (mom & dad did too!). So much information to let soak in and great sights to see!

We went to Branson, Missouri for a few days over Spring Break this year. Used our timeshare points (Bluegreen) and stayed at The Falls. Such a quiet (outside) place to stay for a mini vacation tucked into the hills of Branson. Of course, the first place Rhett wanted to go, was the jacuzzi tub, we obliged. He had so much fun in his “swimming pool”. 

We went to the Dixie Stampede while we were in Branson, and again, Rhett absolutely loved it. He loved seeing the horses and the lights and fire that went along with the show. I’ve been to Branson multiple times and I have NEVER been, until now. Of course, I will be back. The food and show were amazing. 

Bathroom Sneak Peek:

Check out our super cute helper! I’ll make an entire post from start to finish when all the finishing touches are made. 

Until then,

Happy New Year!! “We’re gonna party like it’s 1999.” [Ha, got you singing that didn’t I?] It is 2017. 2017, ya’ll! I seriously, just can’t wrap my head around it. I’m sure this year will fly by just like the previous ones, and many fun memories will be made.

But, just for fun… It’s been:

27 years since I was born.

10 years since I graduated high school.

6 years since I met my husband. [but not married of course]

3 years since my son was born.

2 years since I have been at my current job.

What the what?? Seriously, where does the time go?

Anyway, enough of the history lesson. The last couple of weeks off from work have been fabulous. It’s hard to think about me having to go back to work tomorrow. YIKES! My family and I have done so many things over this winter break, I don’t even know where to begin. The bathroom that I mentioned back in December, well, it’s still a work in progress, but if you have been following me on my Instagram, you might have seen some progress updates. I am hoping by the end of this month it will be finished. *fingers crossed* Christmas with the family was fun as always; laughs, drinks, games, food, the usual. My most ABSOLUTE favorite gift was from my sister in law, I asked her to make it, but seriously wasn’t expecting it for Christmas because it was like 4 days before that I had asked her [more like told] to make it.


Now, if only I can decide exactly where I want this beautiful piece to go in my house!

Last night we went to a friend’s house for a New Years Eve party [& had a blast by the way]. Don’t worry guys, it was kid friendly & had Rhett with us so we didn’t have too much fun! Of course I had to bring in the New Year in style; so I tried something new with my hair & LOVED IT! Don’t think I’ll ever be able to replicate it but I dang sure will try! Rocked my Christmas present to myself around my neck; Salt & Light Gems on Etsy has the absolute most adorable handmade necklaces/chokers! Go check her out! [I’ll post more of my purchase at a later date]
