This has GOT to go

Flooring Reno Before

This is what my house has looked like when you walk in for the last (almost) 2 months. Gorgeous isn't it? Yeah, it has to go and hopefully soon before I lose my mind or before the dogs tear up any more carpet padding. 

It's taken so long because after we had our water heater leak and this flooring pulled out we decided we wanted to take it as a good time to replace the flooring all together and since we're doing it in here, we're taking it all through the main area of the house, kitchen, down the hall and into the master bedroom/bathroom.

I'm excited to share the process, selections and lots of photos with you soon! I just love a good renovation don't you?!

Light & Bright

That's what I think of when I look at August Studio Calico Project Life kit and add ons. Love them and the colors! I plan on finishing up my spreads today but thought I'd pop in for a little sneak.

So fun right?! I love the way I'm doing my album this year with no real "rules" so some spreads are more photo heavy and some are more about the fun paper and embellishments. Whatever I'm feeling like or whatever my weeks are leaning towards!

The Weekend

This last weekend was a whirlwind of travel and fun events. It started at 3:45am on Thursday when I took off to Tampa for the opening night of Marvel Universe Live (awesome show will post more about it on All for the Boys) came home on Friday right into the car to drive with the family to Los Angeles/Anaheim for a blogging conference (and some fun).
