Yesterday, and the day before that and the day before that even...
I jumped in and did the 500 squat challenge.
No, maybe more like the 5000 squat challenge. Along with the best focused arm workout I have had in a while. But it wasn't a big thing on my fitness goal list or a Friday gym class or anything like that.
It is called a bathroom renovation.
That is about all I have to say about the ugh that was behind the walls and under the floor.
And the up and down, wax on wax off, amount of repetitive work that comes with tiling.
We had a leak, so a lot of the original bathroom could not be kept as was
which honestly is making me a little sad.
But the good news- everything is fixed.
The tiling is almost wrapped.
And the new tile?
Well.....I am in love with it.
Here is a peek. With peonies of course.
That project has basically been eating up the whole week...
but there is a little bit more randomness to share.
Taking a break from baking
Basically, the oven has joining the dishwasher and refrigerator...
in the lemon category.
We have replaced the range control board 2x in 3 years (and this is only a 3 year old stove)
and though we are able to use the burners on top- have reached that point of just shopping for all new appliances for the kitchen.
So, would love your opinions on what the best is out there from your experience in kitchen appliances. Because, honestly, this brand should have been a great one- and 2 out of the 3 appliances we have are that brand- and not working properly. So, consumer reports- not so accurate all the time.
Last weekend, my sister, one of my dads my daughter and I quietly put together a surprise birthday party for my mom. With about 25 of her closest friends, her favorite catered food and mini sombrero's all around because- my mom loves a good fiesta.
I am putting together a few photos and will share some tips and tidbits-but as to how the surprise went over- I will leave you with this:
My mom was like a detective.
Tis the season for dining alfresco
and if you are looking for a new dining table and chairs for outdoor living this summer-
I am sharing a few ideas over at Lamps Plus Style Illuminated.
Happy Weekend everyone.
