David and I had a BLAST at my 15 year high school reunion this weekend. Although I was involved in the planning process, I was honestly lukewarm about going. There were some people I was dying to see though and they made it worth it. But, when it was all said and done, even though it was 2:30 in the morning, I didn't want it to end!! I love how easy it is to pick right back up with friends (especially my great group of girl friends) like we had just seen each other yesterday! I really, really enjoyed spending time with everyone and catching up. It was a super fun time!!
Although everyone else is probably sick of hearing about it, we are still in love with the deer that have been visiting our back yard more and more often. Last night we had an all time record of FOUR. Our sweet next door neighbor has a hunting camp in Mississippi and he is going to bring us a feeder and some food so that we can help them out by keeping them fed. All four were doe's and he said this would really help them. Also, Nick Mills stopped by for a second last night and got to see them. He is an expert and told us that all doe's have twins their first time. How cool is that?? So, now I am even more bonded with our backyard bambi's.
We are contemplating beginning our bathroom renovation at some point in the next year. It is really the only area of our house that needs major work. We are pretty sure it was renovated slightly in the early 90's and was most likely a do-it-yourself job. There apparently was carpet in the bathroom (so dated and so GROSS) and so when the house was foreclosed on that was ripped out and nothing was put back. There are still carpet nail strips in our closet and basically we are walking around on the exposed slab. David's closet is teeny-tiny and does not have room for his all of his work clothes. The shower leaks constantly (convenient thing about having concrete floors) and we have already had it repaired twice. We really don't want to spend any more money fixing it. Although it will be hard to part with the seashell shaped sinks (HAHA!) and lovely brass faucets, I have some ideas in mind. We definitely want to take our time and make this a bathroom we will love forever, but without spending a fortune.
If there is one "splurge" that we are able to have, it would be a freestanding tub. I am obsessed with the two below.
To stay consistent with the rest of our house and to blend with all of the lovely antiques we have been given we definitely want a relaxed, cozy, warm bathroom...a la the below picture....AM IN LOVE with the farm table turned vanity.
So, we will see what happens. In the mean time I hope to post about Bennett and Lila's rooms (still works in progress, but getting there) in the near future.
For now, off to another week of swim lessons!!
Happy Monday everyone!
