Bathroom remodel?

This weekend I am going to make sure I get all of my projects done that I have been trying to complete for weeks! I feel like such a slacker, but It's so on.

Yesterday a pipe busted in our bathroom :( We haven't updated it since we bought the house last May so my husband figured why not just re-do it this weekend since he has to tear our the vanity anyway! [Girls: It is always a plus to have a handy-man around] I give him so much credit and I'm so grateful for him. Not only does he work on the ambulance full time, but he has been in construction for the past 7 years. So when we do work to the house all we need to pay for are supplies! (I always knew I would marry someone like my dad.)

Anyway, I need some ideas! I have a basic idea of the direction I want to go, but it is a small bathroom so I have to be careful with the color choices.

How amazing is this bathroom? I love the color!
And this is just amazing! [source]

I've got a lot of planning and thinking to do! We have to finish it this week as well. We are having a party next saturday and I don't want a half finished bathroom!

Here is our guest bedroom that I was working on....not finished yet but its getting there.
My parents old dresser that I restored!

Thats all for now....i am off to craft craft craft!!!

Have a wonderful day, as for any Chicagoans.....its actually a tolerable temperature today :)

Im in need of some inspiration.....

So I have been scrap booking for so long now and it is one of my all time favorite things to do. But lately Iv'e had so much going on that I have been seriously slacking. I'm talking seriously. Im backed up to our Colorado trip in September 2008. yea I know..... But anyway I thought I would post some of the books I've done as a little kick of inspiration. Let hope this works!

This was our guestbook that I made for our wedding. We didn't want the traditional white book with the plain pen. So this worked out really well. And when we look back on it, we get to see more than just names, pictures too! I also made these cute little black and blue pens with big puffy feathers on the ends to write with.

Have a wonderful day!

I planned on working on some projects alllllll weekend and I ended up doing nothing :( Somehow my friend convinced me to go snowboarding with her. I had never gone before so I was nervous, and for good reason. I ended up wiping out and bruising my tail bone. Booooo. I did this early on and It didn't hurt that bad so I continued all day, always falling on the same spot. And at the end of the day was when really felt it. Probably the worst kind of non-threatening injury there is because there is nothing you can do to help it, just have to let it heal. But it wasn't all bad because I had a blast and I actually did really well toward the end. Yay!

Saturday night I had a little family time at my cousins house with the hubbs and my siter. It was nice to hang out with our cousin outside of the normal family party.

My sister and I being creeps..

Sunday I had a family party and my aunt gave me some of her pain meds!...bad idea. although I couldn't feel anything, they knocked me out at 5:30 and I slept through the night.

So I wasn't able to work on any projects but I'm going to try hard this week to get some done. I think tonight I might actually attempt this rainbow cake recipe I found. It super pretty. lets see if I get around to it.

A little Introduction....

So I am completely new to the Blog world as you can probably tell. I was so excited for my first post I didn't think to introduce myself at all. how rude of me :( So here it goes

Im Steph. I live in a suburb on the south side of Chicago. Nothing too exciting but it is home. I recently bought my first home with my amazing husband, Brandon. We started dating when I was in high school for about 5 years, and we were married last July. It is amazing how we have been able to witness each other grow up and mature in the past few years, and I love the person that he has become just as I loved the person he was when we met.

I work full time at a doctors office for the past 6 years and although I would rather be doing something else, I can honestly say I have been blessed with a great job, working for a great company. Yet it leaves me little time for the things I am passionate about.

Anyway, I am off to bed. Some how my girlfriend talked me into going snowboarding with her tomorrow morning. I have no idea how too so this should be interesting.

Sleep Tight,

A very long day...

Work was crazy today... im very glad to be home and in less than ten minutes I will be all bundled up in bed, attempting to finish my scarf. But like every night I will crochet for fifteen minutes before my eyes refuse to fight me any longer.

I have been so inspired this last week and I feel like my mind is overflowing with ideas. I have so many projects I want to start and still so many to finish. However, I am telling myself I will accomplish at least 3 this weekend and knock off 2 of my goals for this year. Lets hope I can stick to it!

I want to leave you with this simple yet amazing photo I found today, It is without a doubt the prettiest cake I have ever seen. If anyone knows how to make this let me know :)
