Once I heard I was student teaching at Martin Elementary & moving home, Mom immediately thought about where I was going to sleep.

See, once me & my 19 year-old sister moved to college, the twins moved into our rooms upstairs. Their room became my older sister's room. So, I was currently without a place to sleep. 
Whenever I came home on the weekends I usually slept in one of two guest rooms or bunked with the twins. 

Mom called one day & shared her brilliant idea of tearing down the wall that separated the guest rooms, making a bigger room just for me. I liked that idea, very much!
Looking in, here are the two guest rooms. 

Dad first started by taking down the ceiling tiles.
We successfully tore down one side of the wall.
Started on the other side. 
Once the wall was gone we had to brainstorm about the floor.
Mom was taking the quarter round & molding up before we could take the floor up.

The floor was definitely the most difficult part! Dad also had trouble rewiring the light switches & thermostat. BUT! Once those were complete, everything was easy!
Okay, that's a lie. The french doors were by hard the worst! We almost had to hire someone to do it, but with enough patience & work, Dad did it!
The doors still have to be painted, but I'm in no hurry right now.
When you walk in.

Ignore the mess in the corner. Still need to hang the curtains.
Dad was doing some work on the door & one of my picture frames (notice the bottom left corner is empty) fell & broke.

I wanted to have Before & After pictures just like on all those DIY TLC shows, but wasn't able to get pictures of the guests rooms before. 

I just love my new spaces! Before my room was even done, the twins were arguing who would get my room when I moved out. Typical.

Splash of Summer

Yeah I know, it's been a while. Like I said, I've been really busy this summer. 

I'm currently house sitting so I have PLENTY of time on my hands to blog. 
Today my sisters & I went swimming & took pics. 

I know, we don't always look alike...
I still like to think I'm as a pretty as they are.

I love them so much!
 I was able to finally take pictures of my room. Posting them tomorrow!

No Excuse

It's a little embarrassing that I haven't been blogging since school ended. I have been SO busy there aren't words to explain. BUT! That's no excuse why I couldn't take a few minutes out of my day to relax & blog. 

So, I'm sorry for being a lazy blogging & vow to blog everyday for the next week... (I might have crossed my fingers).

Coming to an End

Taking my last final exam this afternoon. What a glorious feeling it is to almost be done!

Then, by the end of this week I will be moved home & there till I graduate! 

Hope everyone had a blessed Easter!

Mom made her famous lobster bisque for dinner! Mmmm!

I even visited my Kindergarteners Friday to help during their Easter egg hunt. What a blast!

Mom would like this one.

Easter and Mother's Day are coming up. Great gift ideas. 
So many to choose from!

Yesterday was extra special because I had semi-formal, which was basically a college-version of high school homecoming but WAY better. 

So my loyal companion & I got all dressed up to dance our hearts out.

Also! Yesterday was my last day of placement. I had been at Lanier Elementary all school year, so it was a bitter sweet feeling leaving. I will miss Lanier!

me & ally

then we headed over to Reid's for some delicious lunch. 


hope everyone is enjoying the weekend
