Girls Room Reveal! Part Two

Do you know what I love? Is when you are planning on spending money on one thing, but you end up repurposing it for free and saving that money. I mean, I love it.

That's why yesterday was such a great day for me.

As you can see from yesterday's post, I finally finished the girls room. Woo hoo!!!

I had promised Sophia I was going to get a table for her room. She colors and does crafts on our kitchen table and it's not always simple to clean up. So I told her one day she would get a table. I also wanted to chalkboard paint it so she could color the top. We just didn't have the money.

Remember this table?

It was an end table that was in major need of redo. So, I painted it to this....

Looks good! It was just fine until we received two new end tables from a friend. Then, there was just no place for it. I tried selling it on Craigslist. I even tried giving it away. No takers. Then, I had a brain storm. (I love brain storms.) And then, voila!!

I had a can of Oops! paint that I had purchased for $1, thinking it was pink and I would use it somewhere, eventually. So I painted the legs pink and the top chalkboard, and here we are!

I did a little rearrange to fit everything in the room. The table and lamp made the table look awkward, but I really love them so I just moved them around....

So now it's Tickle Me Elmo's home! That toy hangy-thingy doesn't match, but it was there already and so I just left it. When the closet door is closed, you really can't see it anyway.

Like I said, this is my favorite space in the whole house. Mainly because it's done, and it all MATCHES!!! And because Sophia has a really girly cute room that she's never had with her dad before. And that makes me proud!!

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&#…
