Spring Break

Isn't this just the most beautiful thing you have seen!!!

We spent spring break this year pretty much the same as every spring break I have ever had.....At Sam Rayburn Lake. It is so special to me to be able to bring my kids to the same place I spent all my holidays and summers. Where I learned to ride bikes and fish!!!! We had a great time!!!!

I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted. I have been browsing my favorite blogs and trying to keep up!

This past semester I took 2 classes at my local university working towards my bachelors degree in Business Administration. I know only have 30 hours left. I am taking 3 classes this semester!

Both my kiddos had birthdays since I last posted! They have grown so fast!!!!
I have been struggling with keeping all the toy clutter out of the living room, but I have given up on that!

We also took new family pictures in December! I love them!! Can't wait to have them plastered all over my house!!!!!

Since I have last posted my cousin got married. I hosted the shower for her!!! it was so nice and simple!!!! Since that time she is now having a baby! I am hosting that shower as well. This weekend actually and I have been in serious party planning mode!!!!!

Summer has arrived in Texas

I apologize to the handful of people that actually do read this...

I have been taking full advantage of having nothing to do -The kids and I have been hanging here at the house and I have been trying to keep the use of technology at a minimum.

My husband and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary May 20th we went to the Kemah boardwalk and celebrated with a wonderful and delicious meal at Landrys Seafood and hung out on the boardwalk and watched a live band that plays all the crowds favorite party music!!!! I really enjoyed my alone time with the hubby because it doesn't happen often enough!!!

So we head outside for jumping and playing baseball....we have recently started going to play in the water at local splash parks and have filled up the little plastic pool a few times....

My friends and I all celebrated our 30th birthdays this year. I think it is wonderful that a small handful of us that graduated high school together still hang out on a regular basis...we also have kids the same age so we are able to get them together too !

This picture was taken at my friends surprise dinner for her birthday! She is a bit of a party planner herself and was super hard to keep a secret from her.

Master Bedroom Update

One of the most important task to complete in the re do is getting the windows dressed to block out the light coming in the window...While others like a lot of natural light, I prefer to HIBERNATE!!!

Well, I finally got pictures uploaded of the new bedding and a special arrangement my aunt made for me. I still have a few decorative accessories to add and have put the new dresser/armoir on hold for a while....cause frankly with me not working we are just making what we do have work.

Master Bedroom- Sneak Peak !

Well, after many trips to Marshalls, Target, Walmart, Steinmart, BBB, Ross, Anna's Linens, Dillards, Macy, JCPenny, ....did I forget any???? I would buy, bring home, return, get to the check out and change my mind, Go to one target and change my mind by the time I get to the other one.....I spent days!!!!!! I think I finally got got it!!!! While me and my husband were at the lake it came to me....we enjoy being outside, we love nature! So what better way to capture that in our bedroom...

Leaf motif !!!

I always liked this pillow from Target was my first purchase! --that I didn't return

This came from was on an end cap with some other beachy stuff in the very lucky was I to dig!!!!

I got these outdoor tables at target too! I thought they would go great with the outdoorsy look I was going for and a whole lot cheaper than furniture store nightstands....they were $74 but I ended up only paying $59 each! I think they will look really great once all the accessories get on there!!!

Last but not least...

One day when I walked into walmart to look at sheets I saw this in a special sale section...they are lined and just the right color and length that I needed...the greatest thing - They were only $7 a piece!!!! Jackpot!!!!!

Stay tuned to see everything put together!!!!

Masterbedroom-- BEFORE

This is where all the magic is suppose to happen right! Doesn't look to magical to me. The kids rooms and all other rooms are taking shape but this room has been seriously neglected. My husband is turning 30 today and I turned 30 last week. I thought it was finally time we got a grown up bedroom. We bought a new Comfor Pedic mattress with our income tax money !!! Yippee!!!! So now comes the make over. I had planned on going to get paint and get started but both kids came down with strep...Maybe next week!!! So to hold you over here are the BEFORE pictures
