Just a little bathroom project....

Raise your hand if this is what your bathroom looks like after every round of baths at your house????


I had no place to put three towels in the kids bathroom. I HATE towels on the floor and thrown over the shower curtain (I mean, to stay their permanently). This is kind of odd, considering I don't mind loads of laundry all over the house. I know. Ironic. Anyway, I have been meaning to do something cute about this in the kids bathroom for a while but just never got around to it. Well, last night, I had ENOUGH!!! Although this was just a quick little project that will probably change again, it works for now and it is actually kind of cute!

The kids' bathroom is lots of bright colors, yellow, green, blue, purple, etc. You can see a little from the above picture. So I took 3 colors of card stock and taped them off.

I found 3 small hooks in Jason's hardware collection and put them directly in the wall, at kids height.

I spray painted the untaped areas on the cardstock with chalkboard paint (the uses for this stuff is endless, truly). You will also notice this particular Pizza Hut box shows up in a lot of spray paint pictures. It actually works pretty well!

Once it dried, I had Jordan and Soph write their names.

Voila! The chalkboard did bleed a bit under the tape, so I might redo them a little more carefully next time to make it more perfected, but it works for now. It is behind their door so I am not too concerned. I am just glad that now, they have a place to hang their towels!

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

My Trip To Rockport

My best friend moved to Rockport 3 years ago when her husband was offered the job as airport manager. His sisters, brother in law, nieces and nephews and mother all lived in that town, and two years ago, the construction on their newly built homes was completed. (his sister and brother in law, and my friend and husband built homes side by side)
A week ago Thursday, she called me and asked if she could bring her family up to DFW and would I be willing to have a few stay with us. She told me that there was a mandatory evacuation in Rockport, but they were thinking it would only be until Monday. Of course, I always love seeing her, so I was pretty excited for an excuse for them to come up and spend the weekend. As the day went by, they were predicting a more severe storm, and the family decided to get a hotel room in Waco, close to their son, who went to Baylor. They wanted to be closer to Rockport and brought animals on the trip, so thought a hotel would be the best option. My friend&#…
