Just some ramblings and excuses...

I'm sorry I have left you hanging for a couple of weeks on the renovation process, but there honestly hasn't been that much progress... 

Two weekends ago, I went with a small group from my church to help facilitate a family conference for an Army Battalion at a hotel in Myrtle Beach, SC.  I was in charge of infant-5yr old childcare, but luckily we got someone at the last minute to do the baby nursery, so I only had 2 - 5yr olds (I say "only" like it was easy or something...yeah right!). We really had a great time. It was challenging for sure, but it was neat to see how God worked. Since I was the only adult in the room with 25+ preschoolers, I didn't have much time to take pictures! While I was gone, Jonathan finished priming and painting the walls in the bathroom... they look so good!

Last weekend, I was honestly still recovering from my sleep depravity from the weekend before, but we were also expecting company, so we were busy making preparations for that. Although our company didn't end up coming (my poor niece got sick!), we did get another unexpected treat. Our brother/sister in law came in for the day to do some shopping at some of the great Atlanta offerings...namely IKEA. Jonathan and I went to have lunch and then spent the afternoon shopping with them! They left with a suburban load of cool stuff from IKEA and West Elm... I love when I get the fun of shopping without having to be the one making decisions or spending money!
Anyway,  its also been very busy at work. With Easter coming up, we have been busy making preparations for all kinds of things including special services, concerts, and so forth. Are you ready for me to stop giving excuses? Me too! We are still excited to work on that bathroom, and hopefully after Easter things will slow down a bit and we can get some stuff done! 

I'll leave you with one picture of the color we chose. Keep in mind that there will be wainscoting on the bottom half so that is why we didn't spend too much time keeping that part tidy. ---oops I just realized I don't have the painted picture with me! I'm sorry you will just have to wait until I can post it...maybe tonight!


  1. Loved your ramblings! Can't wait to see the pictures.

  2. Wow, 25+ wee ones?! Good grief! The biggest group of preschool kids I've had alone is 12 (I think) and it did not include 2 year olds. How did you pull that off? Did you cry? I might have.
