Yep, it has been almost 3 years and I haven't posted one single entry! I know, I suck! Life kind of sneaks up on you and takes control. I am proud to say that we are ALMOST done with the renovation on the casa! Seriously, 3 years later and I can proudly say that we are finalizing all the tweaking we have done on this insane adventure! I want to post pics and will...but can't guarantee when! It's Halloween after all! I will be trolling the streets with my man and our off-spring, which is way more important than posting pictures! Sorry, family rules! Hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween, and don't let your kids eat all that candy in one night! Save some for yourselves!

Sorry, just have to get a little business out of the way...
Happy Birthday, you old man!
Now...quit telling everyone you are old and decrepit like your wife!
35 is not that old!
We love you!
Now...onto my master bathroom...
The tile is down!
Now...the shower is being installed and I have to paint before they get it in.
Also, I am having a problem with the paint. Have you ever loved a color, put it on the walls and hated it? Well, that is what I am dealing with now. It looks like a
few hundred pistachios threw up on my bathroom walls. Sir and Lil' Sis keep telling me that once it dries it will be better.
I sure hope they are right!
Otherwise, I just spent all day painting for NOTHING!!
Stay tuned for more on the paint drama!
Thanks for stopping in! Come back real soon!

So, all this week it is teacher appreciation week. A time to let your teacher now just how much they mean.
Our elementary school has a special day designated for the teachers favorite things.
Monday-wear your teachers favorite color
Tuesday-bring your teachers favorite drink
Wednesday-tell your teacher how much you appreciate them
Thursday-bring your teachers favorite snack
Friday-make your teacher a card (which I think is pretty much the same as Wednesday, but whatever)
So, yesterday the kiddos wore their teachers favorite color. CX wore teal and Lil' Sis wore purple.
Today is the drink day and I wanted to do a little something besides just bring in 20 ounce drinks.
I decided to dig into my recycle clothing bag and make a bag of sorts for the bottles. This is what I came up with.
I took a shirt of CX that he had outgrown and was stained pretty good. I don't feel right donating it to goodwill when it is stained, so I hold onto it for situations like this.
And I cut the sleeves off, right at the arm pits.
Then I turned the sleeves inside out and sewed a straight line right on the edge that I cut.
Then I made a small hole in the cuff of the sleeve.
I then took some ribbon and pinned a safety pin into the end. I then pushed the pin thru the hole and threaded the cuff with the ribbon. And then turned it right side out.
I then put the bottle inside the sleeve bag and tied up the ribbon.
And, ta da, you are done. And you have a cute little bag for a rather ordinary gift.
It didn't cost me a dime and now the kiddos have super cute little gifts to take to their teachers.
Thanks for coming by!
I'm linking to these parties...

So the bathroom is moving right along. Here is a picture of the flooring.
Yes, I know...how exciting!
And here are some pics of the walls. My trim guy did the flooring and the walls all in one day.
The pooper room
My closet...still have to install the sheet rock onto the old bathroom (Sir's soon to be closet).
Now I have to figure out a paint color.
Thanks for stopping in today!
