New Bedding!

I know. I'm bad. We only had the other bedding for right at a year. But what was I thinking wanting dark stuff?? I have known for a long time I'm shabby chic and lights are totally my style. I lived with for a year. Who knows, maybe it will show up again some day. Anyway, here's the new bedding.

Towel Baskets!

We love our new house. We really do. But in the last month we have already found things we don't love so much. Like how our bathroom has no storage for towels. We have one towel rack. But just where are we to STORE the towels?? Thanks to Pinterest, I got this idea. I have had the idea and half of the supplies for a while, but just was not brave enough to drill more holes in the wall. (Last time, I'm pretty sure I made a hole about a 1/2 in. Thank you, Ryan, for fixing the curtain rod!)

So this is my solution. I'll show you a before and after. :) I got the rod at IKEA for about $2.50 and the baskets I searched for for FOREVER! (Seriously. I took my little tape measurer to all the stores. I hit jackpot on the baskets at TJ MAXX. $8 a piece! BINGO!



(I don't know why this is sideways. It's not saved that way on my computer.)

4th of July!!

This time last year we were in St. Lucia. I woke up this morning and thought that. I'm not sure ANY other 4th of July celebration will beat out private beach dinner between the Peton Mountains. It was just wonderful! But, the celebrating must go on! This is how we celebrated with family this year. It was delicious, hot, and filled with fun!

Today I am thankful that I have freedom to speak, write, and most importantly worship our living God!!
