The purpose of our blog is to share our journey through life with family and friends while we leave our mark on this world. Our 20's have been very kind to us and as we enter the 30's we are hoping to continue to enjoy our time in this thing we call life. I should have called this blog "Traveling through Life".

Guest Bath Re-model

So our first re-model attempt is complete and it was a success. We are so glad that we picked a small room to tackle first. We did everything ourselves and it was a major learning experience. There were a lot of issues that came up and of course we went over budget but it is a new and bright bathroom so it was worth it. The cabinets and fixtures were outdated, the floor was ugly, and the toilet was small and ran all the time. We replaced everything except the cabinets. I wanted to attempt to save the cabinets so I painted them and put hardware on them and I think they turned out ok. We layed down a tile floor, well I should say Matt because that was his major project and it looks great! New toilet, new light fixture, new sink and faucet, and we painted. The flash on my camera changes the color of everything but the room is painted a light yellow. I have to say the pictures don't do the room justice but I guess you will just have to come over and see it.......and by the way we are for hire if anyone wants to re-model :) The first pic is the before.
(Does anyone know if I can use my swiffer wet jet on tile????)

New Addition

After a lot of recent struggles with my Grand Am I finally bought a new car. I knew it would happen sometime this year but the issues with the Grand Am were costing more than the car was worth so it was time. And it got to the point where I would say a little prayer on my way to work each morning. I have been doing a lot of research on cars and decided that the Honda Accord was best for me and my daily commute. I found one that fits all my criteria and bought it on Valentine's Day. I love it and I know it will be a great car for me. It is a 2008 and is the fanciest car I have owned so I am still trying to adjust to it but once I get the windows tinted it will feel more like my own. And yes Mom and Wanda there are 4 doors because I was planning for the way way distant future :) We have been remodeling our bathroom and the car issues have postponed the completion date because of all the time it has taken from our weekends so I hope to post pictures next weekend.
