We've been very busy this weekend with a bathroom project. Our master bath used to look like this:
(Clearly this photo was taken BEFORE we moved in. Nate wanted me to make sure you didn't assume WE had a shiny gold free standing toilet paper holder or a fluffy toilet seat cover.)
New hardware, paint, lights, mirrors, towel ring and toilet paper holder helped spiff up what used to be a stuck-in-the-ninety’s style bathroom and gave it a calm, modern feel. Eventually we’d like to lay tile- but not this weekend. :) Here are a few photos.
That is a new light fixture. I wish we had a photo of the old one. I’ll give you a description: shiny, gold, ruffled frosted glass.
New robe hooks:
And the finished product:
And here’s what else we’ve been up to:
Saying farewell to some dear friends, Levi and Courtney, who now live in D.C.
Snuggling with Charlie.
LOTS of baking.
My class playing math BINGO with my para.
Birthday breakfast with a few great friends. Here’s a fun game: spot James in every picture.
A Lincoln STARS hockey game.
New fabric for my next craft project.
Our only photo of the evening after the other 4 guests had already gone home- Valentine’s Day dinner with Jay & Liz.
And finally, one of my1st graders signing his book to “RuthE” the school service dog.
Have a great week, friends!!!

We're tearing out some old tri-fold medicine cabinets, switching out all of the shiny gold light fixtures and bringing in some brushed nickel details. Out with the GOLD, in with the new!!!
I've also been perusing ETSY a lot lately and it's totally inspiring me to create some "vondaful" things. Can't wait to show you!

I'm hot and tasty
on a bed of bread
covered with yellow and red
sitting on pickles
eat me all gone.
Crawl up rooms
doing a wacky dance
in the spotlight
Eat up dirt
yum yum yum
have pop tarts
Scratch on my face
scratch right there
little tree makes
my face bleed
Ride the bus
in my seat
the radio is all gone.
I'm guessing that the school bus was too noisy so the driver turned the music off. :) I'll post some more soon. These poems make my world a little more delightful- one line at a time!
Happy Thursday, everyone!
