Projects!!!!

Our house has been quiet on the project list lately but that is about to change!!! Since we have finished the pantry ,I have been on the lookout for a special door.In my original vision I wanted an old rustic door hung on a barn door track. I searched Craigslist occasionlly and finally found a door I really liked.It was located by a town not far from where Paloma lives.I emailed the owner but never heard back.I fell in love with that door and especially the price(it was $40).Fast forward to last weekend,we went to a flea market that Paloma has been wanting us to go to by her house. I specifically wanted to find a door for the pantry and really didn't want to spend over $40 since I had found one for that price before. When going to a flea market you never know what to expect.One man's junk is another man's treasure,lol!!! At first I didn't see any doors and almost gave up hope.My husband said we would probably find some good stuff torward the back in an out of the way section and he was so right!!! I saw a pale pink door that caught my eye!!!At first I thought it was too narrow for the door but there were two narrow doors that almost matched. Originally these doors were parlor doors but the lady had painted one door pink and added chicken wire to a window that had broke.The other door was striped of its original paint but had both the frosted windows in tact. She was selling the pink door for $55 and the other one $45 but since I wanted both doors she would sell them to us for $50.So I bought the set for $50. I was happy ,since these doors are narrow we will be putting two doors in the pantry. I am always impressed at how the universe provides and brings to me things that are better than I have envisioned!!!!For mother's Day we will put up the doors!! I am super excited to have the final jewel to the pantry.I have decided I am going to add a little trim to the pink door around the chicken wire and leave the other door raw. Here are photos of the doors.

Now

I feel like my little blog has been neglected!! At first it was my laptop acting up.I officially need a new battery and more memory.EEK! I tried uploading photos from my phone to my laptop to blog but it only accepted 9 photos. I have to ask hubby what's up with that,lol! I am officially re-starting my spring cleaning.I started in March (kind of)and then it became cold here again so it is feeling like winter.Not very motivating for cleaning,I would rather curl up under my blankets and just find pretty house blogs to look at. I do have a bunch of repainting to do. More touching up the walls and refreshing them but I hope to repaint a dresser in our bedroom.That project will be a complete makeover since I need new hardware .I also would love to do an accent wall behind it.Life just seems so busy for us right now.The family has grown in size and with that comes more family functions,birthday parties,etc.Hopefully I can get the house in great shape before summer!!Just thought I would drop in to say HI!!!! Hope everyone is having a great Spring!!!

Julian's 13th Birthday!!!!

Julian's Lego stop motion youtube channel My baby is growing up!!!! So hard to believe but he is growing into a very talented artist!!! He has his own Youtube channel and makes these movies! He also helps me edit my videos.I am really proud of the young man he has turned into.He was my easiest baby all around,from his delivery to just about everything.We became a complete family since his birth:) For his birthday Julian requested that he would like to open some wrapped presents and also would like to pick out his own presents.He is like his mom,lol! So we woke up and he opened his gifts before Dad went to work and then the boys and I went to pick up Jacob .Julian wanted Taco Bell for lunch and so we went:) It was his lucky day because after we ordered the worker gave us all FREE large drinks if I filled out a survey.We were pumped,lol!!! After lunch he wanted to go to GameStop which is a video game store.I kind of browsed at Ulta and Sephora which were right next door then we ended up at Target.He was in heaven!!!He scored a large stash of games!In the evening we had his birthday cake and we ordered pizza from Toppers(thats what he wanted) I had to drive to the next town to pick it up since his brother called the wrong pizza place and they wouldn't deliver.Bummer,but it was a happy day on the end!!!!!! Love you Jules!!!!!

Dressing Room Tour

Ok,so I am learning how to edit on my iPad using iMovie and this what I did so far!!! Hands down my FAVORITE room in my house (second to my pantry,lol)I have added a few new girly pieces to it and I am in LOVE!!I found another 3 tiered cake/cupcake stand from Opuluent Treasures like the one I purchased last year ,in a different color and about 1/3 of the price at Homegoods!!!! We went out of town a few weeks ago and I picked the hotel we stayed at (from our last anniversary) because it had resteraunts that we liked and it had the BEST Homegoods store across the street.Of course ,it was a really nice hotel as well ,lol:) Here is my mini movie trailer of my favorite haapy place! I may need a bigger room soon,lol!! A look into my favorite room!!!
