Happy Spring Break people!
We are livin’ it up here
at some exotic beach destination in Montgomery, Alabama for Spring Break. White sand Almost-green grass and crystal blue water soccer goals was our entertainment for today. We braved the sun clouds from 8:20 this morning until around 4:00 this afternoon, with excursions such as snorkeling and scuba diving 4 soccer matches in which we tied or lost all 4 games. We then refreshed ourselves with some strawberry daquiris and pina coladas milkshakes from the Tiki Bar Chick Fil A! It’s supposed to start raining at 8:00 tonight and rain ALL NIGHT LONG, which means even our plans tomorrow for watching more soccer for Spring Break may get cancelled! Good times….. JUST KIDDING!!! Well, not really kidding, but the kids and I are beach bound Monday so we hope to get some sun and sand in before the week is up.
In all seriousness, have you tried the FROSTED LEMONADE from Chick Fil A?? I used to be admittedly addicted to Starbucks Mocha Frappuccinos (with 1 pump of “gasoline” as my kids would scream from the backseat). Y’all…. FROSTED LEMONADE!! I have had FOUR, yes 4, of them since Tuesday! They are DELICIOUS, and $1.39 cheaper than Starbucks! I am not sure what I’m going to do on Sunday when they are closed…..
As promised, here are a few “AFTER” bathroom pics from our recent bathroom renovation. Let me preface this by saying, if you dislike our new bathroom, don’t agree with the cabinet choices we made, don’t like the paint color (Benjamin Moore Manchester Tan btw…), think the vanity lights are awful…. please do not mistakenly email me thinking you emailed your BFF to tell her how you don’t like MY bathroom that you will never step foot in. True story… when we redid our kitchen, I had a girl email me to tell me she hated the chandelier over our table (which we had not replaced yet) and that she would have never chosen the island color. She hit reply to a blog post instead of FORWARD (to her BFF)!!!! lolololololololol…. I still laugh about that!
Before tiny plastic SHOWER and hubby’s vanity & AFTER bigger not-plastic-anymore shower and linen cabinet:
Before my lovely *oak* vanity & AFTER his and hers double vanity:
Before gigantic heart shaped space-wasting tub & AFTER normal human sized tub (plus the TV for me to watch HGTV and The Today Show when I’m getting ready every morning):
Here are several more photos. Everything is so new and clean and simple and we love it!
I no longer have to balance on one leg and shave my legs!! Hooray!!
I got the little stool from TJ Maxx! Everything is still very much a blank slate, so I need a painting or something to bring in some color. Maybe a towel rack over the tub and some monogrammed towels? I wonder if I can find someone to monogram some for me…..
We love the cabinets, which are from Bishop Cabinets of course (where Jeff really works)! If you recall, the tile is from Home Depot and is Castle Travertine. We went through literally hundreds of tiles to pick out each and every tile that is in our bathroom. It was a huge headache, but I have to say that now I appreciate each and every tile. When I’m showering, I look at all of them and remember all the work that put in to choosing them! Really! I do!
I hope all of you who are on Spring Break have a great week wherever you are! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
