Guest room redo. Few changes!




Spring Break in Willis, Texas


You can't boat without Tortilla chips!

Little lunch.....


Puddles and Pepper are on Spring Break too!



Kayak rentals just down the lake from us! Who would have thought! I have been interested in Kyaking. Now I can rent one!




They are so sweet!












Lake Conroe, Texas

I like austin stone.
I love the open lot that they have.

This is where I live! With my handsome husband!


They were trying to stay occupied while we were cruising back!








I love those windows!





I love the porch! It would be so nice to sit out and watch the sunset from here!

































This is where we live! Not exactly, but we live in this lake area with some of the most beautiful homes. I thought I would share a few from our boating adventure today! Enjoy!

Kitchen before and after







I still have alot of work to do, but our two bathroom remodels took most of our budget for thisd year! Still some improvement!



I was searching http://www.har.com/ today searching for homes and came across the mls listing from when our home was for sale. I was so excited because I now finally have pics of my kitchen before we moved in. I immediately started tearing down wallpaper as soon as the keys were handed to me. I remember now why I felt so overwhelmed!

Painted kitchen table!

I also added a picture of my Mom's antique ice box from 1901. This was her favorite piece of furniture and my Dad recently brought it to me from storage. I was afraid it would be too big for our home, but I am so happy it is here now. My Mom would be so excited!









Last week I was able to paint my table that I had been looking to replace. The top of it was tiled with pink tile that matched our first house that we purchased in 2000. We have since built, sold, rented, and bought again. This table has moved many times! I am so glad to see it with a different look!

Guest Room redo

I still need to add some more things, but this is as far as I got today. I am looking forward to having the week off so I can do some more projects. My husband even helped paint the armoire that I recently purchased at a friends family estate sale. It turned out great! I will post more as soon as I finish.





Saturday Cleaning!




I was trying to get some cleaning done today! Chloe was supposed to clean her room and this is what she was doing instead....

So handsome. Look at those eyes!


































Pictures of my kiddos and friends!































































































































































































It seems as though every morning my children look bigger and bigger. I have been so busy lately that I have slacked on taking candids of them. It makes me sad! I have been having alot of fun taking some the past couple of days with my new camera. Chloe really seems to enjoy all the picture taking, but Blake not so much! Our neighbor friends have even joined in!
