Before/After - Master Bathroom Transformation!

Master Bathroom transformation - before and after pics you have to see to believe!

This reveal has been a LONG time coming but before I get too far, I want to share a little backstory with you.  Ten years ago we moved into this house and for ten years, we made the house work.  There were things we didn't like but we just lived with them.  I dreamed and planned but, honestly, I didn't have the courage to go for it.  It was a battle and the house was winning!  But, if I've learned anything during this process, it's that our house should work for us, not the other way around!  So...we created a plan, changed the plan a time or two (or three), and finally got the master bathroom I had dreamed about for so many years!

Bar Cart Inspiration

Earlier I mentioned our recent bar cart purchase and since then, I've been looking for ideas on how to style it!  There are so many incredible ideas out there but most of them don't fit our style.  We aren't fancy drinkers - just your basic beer and wine people.  With that in mind, I've created a few bar cart essentials I'm thinking of using and also included a few inspiration pictures!!!  What's your bar cart style?

Friday Favorites!

While I'm Waiting...Friday Favorites!

Hello, Friday!  I've been looking forward to seeing you all week!  Phew - it's been a doozy of a week!  Just the typical family schedule but it did have me feeling a little frazzled this week.  On Tuesday, it was after 9pm when I finally pulled into our driveway.!  But, on Wednesday, I was going through pictures and came across a few of the kids doing what they love.  Perfect timing and a great reminder!  Definitely made me look back and realize they really are happiest when they are where they feel they belong.  So, in other words, it was just the internal pep talk I needed to get me through a long week!

Homecoming 2017 - traditions both new and old

Homecoming Traditions - both new and old!

Homecoming - a spirit-filled week of activities leading up to the Homecoming football game and typically followed by a Homecoming dance.  Growing up in Texas, some things stay the same, and some things take on a mind of their own (I blame Pinterest - but also am so thankful for Pinterest, in times like this!). There are dates and events that, no matter how old you are, you can look back on and remember - Homecoming is definitely one of these events!

This past weekend was Colby's Homecoming.  Last year as a freshman, he opted not to participate in any of the Homecoming festivities.  Truthfully, I was a bit bummed on Homecoming night seeing all the pictures on social media of all the kids and their dates.  But, I only had to wait one year till he decided he wanted to ask a friend to Homecoming.

What a GREAT weekend!

On Thursday evening, Mike and I were in the stands at Colby's football game. We knew my parents were coming but we were in for the best surprise!!!  My niece, Christian, and her sweet baby, Elliott, were surprising us with a visit!  I saw them walking up and I was in complete disbelief.  Elliott is 2 months old but the last time we saw her she was only 5 days old.  That's a long time for anyone but especially for a baby who changes so quickly!

Tears filled my eyes and I quickly went and scooped her up!
