Bathroom remodel

Our house is 16 years old this month. We are having to replace and update just about everything. Our latest project is the guest/girls bathroom. Some of the tiles had come loose and water was getting behind them. On thursday Mitchell tore all the tile off. Behind it was insulation and towards the bottom it was sopping wet. Even the boards behind it were wet. This is how it looks now and will look for at least another week because we have to let everthing dry out. We are putting in a pre-fab bathtub (no more tile and grout for us) and a new vanity, sink, toilet, and tile on the floors. I also want to put beadboard and chair rails on the walls.

After this its the wood laminate flooring, then new counter tops, then the master bath, then french doors in lieu of our sliding glass doors, then new bedroom furniture, then new living room furniture, a new air conditioner, larger water heater, OK I will stop now ;-)

24th Anniversary

Last sunday Mitchell and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary. I had to work and when I came home these varigated roses and this beautiful card were waiting for me. We then went to our friends house for dinner. Mitchell smoked ribs and our friends grilled ribs. They were delicious.

My husband is a sweetie!

Closet Makeover

Today I had the day off from work. It was a dreary, rainy day. I decided to tackle our bedroom closet. It has become a catch all for all the stuff that I don't have a place for. The problem is our closet is super small. So I took everything out of the closet and noticed that it needed to be painted. So I went to the store, bought some paint, came home and painted. After awhile I started to put every thing back and started a Goodwill pile.
This is embarassing but here is the before:

And ta da... here is the after. While at the store I bought the canvas boxes to put sweaters, ball caps and purses in. I need one more sweater box.

Now I feel more organized. From now on I am not putting anything in there that does not belong in there!
