Christmas break happenings

One of our bathrooms has been the only room I hate in our house. It’s needed new texture on the walls since we moved in…3 years ago. But I kept putting it off cause who wants to take that on??

The only before pics I could find were when we looked at the house before buying it (Beckham!!!!). The texture was cracking and peeling off, so it wasn’t just something a good coat of paint would fix either.

So I finally bit the bullet and took it on over the break. Here’s how I felt about this project:

Here’s what happened to the laundry when it was neglected because of this project:Dec 2016

It was every bit as horrible as I thought it was going to be, so I feel justified in my procrastination. But the end result I love!

Fixing this room also meant many trips to Home Depot. One trip the Bigs got to stay home, but Berkley’s just too small unpredictable to be able to stay home yet, so she had to come. She brought her babies.

And she got to wear her footies. (Perks of being the youngest…I so would have made Becks put on clothes)

The day after Thanksgiving we realized we didn’t have Christmas tree anymore. I had made enough decisions and told Brian to pull the trigger on something. Three days later this came in the mail:
