House Progress - the Guest Room

These posts of our house progress are not because we think looking at paint color is so very exciting, but because so many of yo have asked to see something as a result of the many hours we're spending over in Fort Worth! HA!!!

This is the only before pic I have of our guest room. Nothing fancy, just a room with a pretty ceiling. I love how you can see the house outside the window just being built. Those people have lived int hat hose for two months now! We've been in this metroplex limbo for way too long!!!

Here's the AFTER. It's hard to tell, but it's a pretty grayish blue. Everything else in this room will hopefully be black and white with silver accents. We want our guests to feel like they're super special!!

Notice the house outside the window is totally finished!

This wall is going to be a great place for a desk and cabinet to house craft/scrapbooking stuff. Can't wait!!!

So... as soon as we get a bed in're welcome to come and stay!

House Progress- The Master Bedroom

Okay, so we have been painting and painting and then when bored, more painting. I keep finding traces of paint color from different rooms in our house all over my body..sometimes days and days later! I DO bathe daily, I promise.

So, first we started in the guest bedroom, moved to Cait's room, then B's room...which took fo-ev-ah!!!! Then lastly to our room. We'd eventually like to put color in every room, but we thought the bedrooms would be a good thing to take care of before move in.

So here are some before and after pics of just the master...not finished, but the color up. What do you think?




AFTER!!!...looking at the entry hall of the master looking out to backyard and patio

AFTER...entry to master and doors to bathroom on the left

AFTER...master bath doors

AFTER...from entry hall

I like it a lot! We have a white comforter with red and khaki throw pillows, so the rich color would warm it all up, we thought. Can't wait to get some furniture in here and actually LIVE here!!


Another fun, fun weekend at the lake with the fam!

New tradition! Confetti eggs! The kids loved them...and so did the adults! At Easter time you could buy them everywhere! $2.50 for a dozen!

Then of course...there had to be an injury and some drama. Cait was "swimming" in the hot tub when all of the sudden she popped up screaming and saying she knocked her front tooth out. Sure enough...she hit her mouth on the seat and it knocked her tooth right out and loosened the one next to it.

We crack up at this picture. She was still a little hysterical when we were asking her to smile so it came out this pathetic cry/smile. She is a funny girl! Later that night I went to grab B's shoes to take home and I got stung...GOOD! A yellow jacket was inside the shoe and got my knuckle. I hate bugs!

Easter Sunday we went to church with Paul's dad and brother. It was a wonderful sermon and we were all blessed. We followed the service with a delicious lunch and fun times with the fam. That night we tagged along with Nathan, Kristi and Tyler to Nathan's HUGE family egg hunt. I mean HUGE!!! This is the only good pic I got that night because our camera battery died. Boo!!

What a fun, fun weekend!
