"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just like people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey ... delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."

~ Gordon B. Hinckley

.After Pics.

Okay, here are some pics of the house... we worked hard to get a ton of stuff done this past weekend.
Here is the guest bedroom
This is my Grandma Mary's furniture... that I sanded and painted :)
Pink Bath Another View Dining Room We haven't finished the Bar and I still need to find some tall bar stools. Sue Arnold found me this table and chairs for 100 bucks! I covered the seats with cute material and I think the table is just perfect! Living Room Sue, also found me that Funky Green Wing Back Chair for 50 bucks. I Love it! My CARRIE BRADSHAW BLUE BEDROOM I am in love with my bedroom... I feel like a Princess when I wake up
This is the bed I purchased from a lady who had it for sale on Craigs List. I painted it Flat Black. I almost gave it away bc I was so frustrated with painting it. Allison, my sister-in-law convinced me not to sell it and helped me finish it. I'm happy I kept it. :) One Day I will have a Bed Skirt -baby steps-
