Guest Bath Goals

With the kitchen renovation done, my mind is already moving on to our next project – the guest bathroom. Like everything else in our house, the guest bath isn’t bad, it’s just not good. It’s got the whole floor-tile-on-the-walls thing going on, an awkward L shaped layout, and a really strange sink. Overall, it’s nothing we can’t update for cheap. Here are the photos from our house listing:

Boozing it Up with our DIY Bar Cabinet

Apparently, David and I have a lot of booze and booze-related accessories. Don’t judge- there’s a lot of items involved when making cocktails! We’ve got wine glasses, beer steins, bottles of everything, bottle openers, mixers, shot glasses, etc. and we needed a place to keep them all together. Also, we have people over all the time, and I didn’t want them to dig through a random kitchen cabinet when helping themselves to a glass of wine. Therefore, I knew I wanted/needed a bar cart or bar cabinet situation. I kept my eyes peeled for something that could hold all our bar goods on Craigslist, and I shopped around a few antiques stores in town for months. I never found anything that clicked with my vision (and my pocket book) UNTIL THIS:

We’ve got the Fridge Surrounded

Today I am writing this post with a happy heart. My heart is filled with joy because (drum roll please) our kitchen reno is 99% finished!! The last thing on our giant never-ending renovation to-do list was to build/install a fridge surround. Now some of you might be asking, what is a fridge surround? Here’s what I’m talking about:

Three Days in Costa Rica

David and I traveled to Jaco, Costa Rica, for a quick get-away at the end of June. We are lucky that we live super close to Hobby airport- home of cheap Southwest flights. I was able to snag a “wanna getaway” deal to San Jose, Costa Rica, for $150 pp round-trip. Neither of us could take a lot of time off of work, so it was a quick trip. Too quick. I knew we would only have three fully days when I booked it. But three days was not enough. Everything was so pretty! I needed more time to explore and soak it all in.

Good Friday Finds

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! David and I randomly stopped by the DAV Thrift Store on Griggs Rd the other day and, man-oh-man, did we score big! This place was definitely off the beaten path and had a distinct granny’s house basement smell. However, the goods were good! Many vintage pieces at great prices. Here’s a list of the items I got.
