New look in my bath...

Well, I was totally wanting to repaint my bathroom....AND I did. Not me, but Mr. Hubs!

I was so sick of the red, I like red, but just wasn't what I wanted anymore. It's just not ME anymore. I just love simple and calm. So here's the before

And I just am so happy with the calm yellow. I used Sherwin William Golden fleece on the walls and Bosc Pear on the ceilings. I feel like it flows so much more with the rest of the house now. It's amazing how much lighter and brighter it is in here now.


I got the cute little hooks from Pier One, perfect for hanging those wet towels. The three tiered wicker basket came from there as well.
This is a view up on top of the armoire. I just used stuff I had from around the house, mostly flea market finds.
  The tray was another flea market find, holding perfume and flowers from my yard.

I also got the sunburst mirror from Pier One. I'm looking for something maybe for the other wall, but I don't want it to be too busy.

I'm SOOOOO happy with the turnout, It makes me smile when I walk in the room.
I guess I better get off here and get ready for a crazy day....Take the boys to the dentist, a swimming play date here with some friends, and packing for our family Summer road trip! Whew!!!!
Have a great Summer day!

Couples Retreat....

A couple of weekends ago we had the best time on a couples retreat with our wonderful Sunday school class. We have some of the most sweetest people in our class. It was so nice to get away for a couple of nights.

We went to Petit Jean mountain, absolutely beautiful....We hiked as a group and went to the famous Petit Jean waterfall, laughed, slept, ate and  bonded.

We stayed up late and played games, we laughed so much! It was great. I'm not even telling you what we did in this game!!!! HA! : )
I love getting together like this, because you really can get to know each other and build relationships.

I'm so thankful for a wonderful husband, and it is just GREAT to get away for the weekend. We have so much fun together.  We are so incredibly blessed with wonderful friends. I'm already looking forward to the next one!

On another note....I can't wait to try this new ice cream maker out. You do not have to use rock salt and ice!! It should be super easy. We love us some homemade ice cream in the Summer. We found this one at Williams- Sonoma.
I will let you know how this one does.

Today was the boys last day of school!!!! I hope now things slow down some here for us. I'm sure ready for some relaxing days out in the pool. Tonight after the boys get done with boxing we are heading to our church for some water slide fun, they are having a party for the end of school! The boys will have a blast.

I hope to get back to regular blogging now! Have a great Monday and stay cool!
