Shopping Trips

OUR DATE NIGHT SHOPPING TRIP

Last night, Greg and I took time out for a much needed date night. After dinner at one of our fave restaurants, Greg arranged for a private screening of my all-time favorite Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast (3D). Okay, so he didn’t really rent out the theater… though he totally acted like it for a few minutes, and I almost believed it for a second. Just for a second. Nevertheless, we were indeed the only ones in the house –…

Half Bathroom

BECOMING A PROJECT BY ASSOCIATION

For a very long time, 14 months to be exact, the half bathroom has been the most neglected room in the house. It remained untouched and definitely unwanted – though it did serve as a great “paint brush cleaning sink” while we were busy painting every other wall in the house.

Kind of like when you see an episode of a soap opera, stop watching it for 6 months, then watch it again, and everyone’s wearing the same outfits and that guy is still in a coma. But the light is at the end of the tunnel. Pinky promise. And soon we’ll be on our way to a nice, photo-ready…

Hall Bathroom

HALL BATHROOM RENOVATION: DONE!

Last time we posted about the hall bathroom, we talked about what to put on the counter between the two sinks. Well, we finally came to a decision and some wall art, a few hooks, and a toilet paper holder later, we can officially call this turkey “Done”. Holla. We’re really happy with the final outcome and feel that the year spent in the making was well worth it. To refresh your (and my!) memory, here’s what the bathroom looked…
