Oh what paint can do!!

Master Bath Before
Before pics Master Bath-
It's amazing what a little bit of paint can do!!!!
I have a small maste bathroom and I try to make it as cozy as possible.
I love the green walls- I have alot of green all over the house and the dark stain is orginal to my 1987 stucco home.
After many years of discussion about the dark trim we finally decided it was alot less time and money to just paint all the dark trim!!!
Right now with a new baby on the way two things we lack are time and money!! LOL
So now each weekend we (actually hubby) will tackle one room in the house and paint the trim and all the doors white.
It is so amazing what paint can do!!!
Here is the after pic of master bathroom!!

It looks so much brighter in there!!!!
I can't wait to finish all the rooms!!!

Little bit a time(the Arc wasn't built in day!) we will get each room done!!!
A house is a never ending array of projects!! Always something to be done and my house will never be finished!!!
For now I will just enjoy my bathroom since I have been spending alot of time in there this pregnancy!!
We hope to get my master bedroom done this weekend, but we may decide to hang out with friends instead....you know.....enjoy life.......
it's not all work......
we must play too!!!
Enjoy your playtime!!!

Sping Break 2010

Another Spring Break has come and gone and in less then 2 months summe vacation begins.
I have been sick on and off and very tired by the end of the day.
We have a new due date and as it turns out we are having a thanksgving baby!
I am now due November 28, 2010
so as I expected as I was not as far along as orginally thought.
Yes it will be a long hot summer!!
We kept very busy over Spring Break. Easter was rather quiet as there wasn't any family down here to visit this year. We took the kids to an indoor inflatables fun zone! The kids had a blast!!
And during the kids week long vacation we went to Chuck E Cheeses and the beach.
Every year I take pics of the kids at the beach!! We had alot of fun and the weather was perfect!!!
Now on to preparing for summer break and a new baby as well. It is still too early to decorate or shop as we have no idea if we are having a boy or a girl and probably wont know for another couple more months. Until then I'll make my list and browse blogland for some great baby ideas and projects.
Happy Weekend!!
