There's only one real joy in a home renovation . . . and that is FINISHING a project! :)
We live in a fixer-upper, and there is a certain pleasure in making a home exactly what you want it to be. There are many challenges and stressful times, but being able to say 'WE ARE DONE!' is an amazing feeling.
(Side note: It is really my husband who is able to say that - as he is the one who completed this bathroom project - one that was MUCH bigger than we were anticipating!)
Our original plan was to scrape the paint and save what was there. We love all things mid-century and thought we could make the pink and black tile work for us. So we scraped. And scraped. And scraped.
After we scraped the paint off of the wall tile we realized that there was a reason that the tile had been painted. It just wasn't in great shape, so Carlos decided it all had to come down!
So I've publicly expressed my love for Disney - but what to do when you can't actually be at the parks?
Practiced for years by the diehard Disney fashionistas, it was made popular by Leslie Kay when she created a website in 2012.
Disneybounding is dressing in the style/colors of Disney characters - but not a costume. You can go as spot on or as subtle as you like, and the best part of bounding is that you can dress in your own style! It's a fun way to keep Disney in the forefront even in your every day life. There are SO many AWESOME bounders out there to follow on instagram - just search the #disneybound and you will see some great ones!
These are a few of my favorite bounds from the last year or so . . .
For the next 24 hours or so, check out my instastory here to see a few of my favorite Disneybounders!
As the days tick forward toward my 40th birthday (1.5 years away), I am working on checking off the list of my 40 before 40 bucket list items!
One thing I wanted to do was donate my hair. I had wanted to at one extreme haircut, but because my hair was layered it wasn't long enough to donate. The high school where I work hosts a hair drive for Pantene Beautiful Lengths every year. So a little more than a year ago I decided I would grow my hair out to donate. I loved my long hair, but the short 'do is great for summer, and guess what? Hair grows! :) I'll have long hair again before you know it!
