The days I get to wear my coat I love. I found this baby last year at TJ Maxx for under 30. The bow on the back and the ruffles on the front screamed buy me. This jacket will last me a long time. I have a black long pea coat from Guess but I could find it anywhere so I had to buy a new one. Then when we started packing up at the beginning of the year to move into our 1st home I found it. It will come in more handy on those extra cold winter days as its thicker and warmer. But until then Ill where this baby.

Do you have a favorite coat or one you have been eyeing lately?

Bathroom makeover

24 Jun

I want to apologize for being MIA last week with posts. I have been working diligently on our upstairs bathroom makeover. I finally finished last night and I want to show you all what I did. This post is probably going to be picture heavy so I apologize.

This is the before: Plaid wallpaper?!?!

After almost 4 days of removing the wallpaper which in some spots it didn’t want to come off, finally it was all gone well almost. Behind the mirror was some extremely old wallpaper and well it wasn’t coming off so I just left it. no one was going to see it anyways once the mirror was back up. I used DIF gel wallpaper remover the kind in the spay bottle. it says let sit 20-30 minutes which is too long after that long of time it starts to dry. I waited about 5-6 min as its easier to remove when wet. I know some people say use windex the one with ammonia, but I didn’t remember to try that till I was almost done.

Now I was ready to paint. this took about 3 hours. I had to use two coats, one was fine but was too bright, the second coat darkened it up and was the perfect shade. I used Behr Sea Foam Spray (Home Depot)

These photos above (I made) I put on the middle of the mirror. I wanted to have them on the counter top but i didn’t like how it looked. So I decided to attach them to the mirror using Command Picture frame damage free hanging stripes.

Things school didn’t teach me

23 May

Day 23 is all about the things school didn’t teach you. As I sit here and think about this several thoughts come to mind.

1. How to balance a check book

2. How to change a tire or your oil for that matter

3. How to drive. This should still be taught in High School we shouldn’t have to pay someone 200+ to teach our children something that should be taught in school. and parallel parking should be a major point on the test either. Most places you don’t have parallel parking.

4. How to live on a budget

5. How to act like a lady or gentlemen. I live in Texas were manners are mandatory you respect your elders. but these days good ole southern goodness seems to be fading away. it needs to come back.

These are just a few that I can think I am pretty sure there are tons more.

Day 19 & 20 Blog every day in may

21 May

This is a day late I was so exhausted yesterday from all the craziness that had been going on over the week before. It finally hit me like a brick wall. But then the wind was so bad last night I really didn’t get any sleep. The joys of living in the panhandle of Texas. I did get a great nap in today.

Day 19 is about my 5 favorite bloggers. I’m going to do 3 since in my Profess your love for a blogger friend I did 2 of my favorite bloggers since I don’t have any blogger friends.

Summer Wind– She has a cute Preppy blog that I love. She has OOTD, fun fashion finds. All around love her.

Day 20- something I’m struggling with right now.
Honestly this challenge. But mostly with ,y honey being in Iraq we are so ready for him to be home. Everyday is a struggle, some good some bad but knowing its almost over and he’ll be home for good soon makes it better.

I hope you enjoyed.

Day 18 A story from your childhood

18 May

To be honest I don’t really remember my childhood. It wasn’t that great. I have short memories about it. like when I got my first pair of glasses in kindergarten, they were pink plastic frames. I thought I was so cool, even if the kids called me four eyes. My Nanny(grandma) took me to Dairy Queen twice a week in kindergarten, I went 1/2 day which they dont’ have anymore. I loved it chicken finger basket, gravy and Texas toast yum. It doesn’t taste the same as it did then. then a dipped ice cream cone for dessert as we walked home. these are a few memories that are good that I can remember.  What are some of your favorite childhood memories?
