Gotta love a great idea!!

The bathroom makeover is going great.  I want to show you parts right now but I am going to wait till it is all done before you get any pictures.  
So I have had a lot more nausea this pregnancy than any of my others.  Cold cereal makes me want to vomit these days which is totally weird because I love cereal!!!  I knew this morning I wouldn't be able to handle it, so I decided to make french toast instead.  I was getting everything ready when a thought struck me.  French toast sticks.  If your house is anything like my house when we do any sort of any cooking we end up cutting everything for 2-3 kids.  I somehow end up all sticky and don't get to eat any hot food because I am cutting.  So before I cooked the bread I took a stack and sliced them into about 1 inch pieces.  Dipped and threw them on the griddle.  I poured them each a little syrup in a small bowl.  And let them go.  I got a hot breakfast and the kids loved them!!  Sometimes I wonder to myself "Why haven't I done this before?"  Maybe you had this idea a long time ago.

Okay, 1 pic of the bathroom and that is only cause my little guy is so cute

One of those days...

So today has been one of those unproductive days.  I mean I cleaned up after the meals and kids, but one of those days that has me crawling out of my skin, pull my hair out days.  I have mentioned that I totally have ADD (self diagnosed of course).  I have learned that I self medicate with crafts and projects.  I do have a big one in the works but it was on hold till I decided what color I was painting the bathroom.  So I have decided but the kids put a huge fuss when I wanted to go get the paint tonight.  So I would have something to do while Lance is gone and the kids are asleep.  Perfect time to paint a room right???  I think so, but I gave into their fights to not go.  At this point in time I am almost pacing the house trying to think of something I can work on to give me the feeling of having done something today.  So far I got nothing!!!  So here I sit writing about it so that maybe I can relax and say "I posted on my blog today".  Then hopefully be able to relax or focus and do something.  So if you made it through all of this I thank your for listening to my rant :).  A little glimpse into the insanity that is sometimes my head.

Makeover and an Apology

So lets get the apology part over with first.  So a little while ago I posted a teaser about remember this table?  Well there is a reason I haven't posted a pic.  First of all it turned out so good that I wanted to show you a picture taken with a nice camera and also by someone who knows what they are doing.  That didn't work out.  And second I wanted the picture to not be taken in my extrememly messy garage.  Since I am preggers moving furniture is not on my list of acceptable activities.  Any who here is the apology the person who bought it from me came and picked it up without me having a picture.  Never fear she has promised me a picture as soon as she can.  I am very sorry for the teaser.

In the mean time I have decided to redo my bathroom.  There really isn't anything wrong with the way it is now, other than it is kinda boring.  So here is the Before.  I even patched the walls myself :)
Hand Towel that covers the outlet.
 I really want to replace this fixture but not sure with what that might just be staying with some new bulbs
 Sideways shot of the mirror and counter.
 The one thing on the wall
 The Bow box this has got to go.
 Boring shower curtain  YAWN :0()
This where the towel rack was, I forgot to take the picture before I started.  I was too lazy to put it back up just for a picture.

Now I want to go get some paint chips and tape but alas the kids want to play out side :(  More to come soon.

Hmmmm... an End Table or a Nightstand

I have had a few people tell me I should sell the furniture I refinish.  I think I would like to but I am always afraid to take the plunge.  However if I want to continue to do this I am...
1- Run out of space to put them in my home, because believe me I have fallen in love with every piece I have done.
2- In order to purchase new(old) furniture to refinish it requires $$$ and lets face it my monthly allowance only goes so far.

So here is my first piece up for sale, I hope you like it or want to buy it or....  Tell me it is wonderful to help my self-esteem.
