Downstairs hallway and our Brenton

It seems like ever since Bristyn went away to college, we have been working on the basement.  We have painted her room and organized it, redid her bathroom and now we are going to organize the theater room and I just got the hallway decorated!  I don't think that I have ever shown pictures of the theater room because I have never really done anything to it! 
The last couple of weeks have been pretty hard on our family...we found out that Brenton has what is called, Post Concussion Syndrome.  He suffers from really bad headaches everyday, which in turn has been bringing him down.  Today we had an MRI done just to make sure everything is ok with his brain.  He is on medication to relieve him from the headaches, yesterday he seemed to be alot better, and today he said that his headache isn't as bad as it was yesterday, so hopefully things will get better with out little guy!  He is not able to do any type of contact sports....that has been very hard for him.  He has been playing soccer for years and he had to stop wrestling after his 3rd concussion.  Hopefully, he will be able to start working out, like running, next week, but nothing that he can get a concussion with!

Happy Valentines Day!

Not much decorating got done around here for Valentines Day...that is because I really don't have any decorations for this celebration!  Barb made me the adorable burlap wreath...I hung it inside because I was afraid of ruining it by putting it outside!  Hope everyone feels loved and cherished everyday, not just on Valentines Day!

Bristyn has a new and improved bathroom

 One of the projects we wanted to do this year was to redo Bristyns bathroom that is in the basement.  Trust me when I say it was ugly and disgusting before...that is why I really don't have any before pics.  We gutted it about 3 weeks ago and we thought that we would have until March to finish it.  We wanted to surprise her and didn't think that she would be home until Spring break.  Well, last Monday she called and said that she would be home on Friday for the weekend!  That put us in a panic!  We love the results, it is so nice and bright!  I haven't done any decorating yet, but I love the tile floor and the vanity!  We still have some things left to do, like getting a new mirror, or just making a frame around the existing one, and decorating.  I have to say, my husband worked very hard on this project....Bristyn even loves it!
 This is the ugly vanity that was in the bathroom before!  So UGLY and cheap looking....hate it!!!
Don't you just love the big bulbs????  this is another before shot, its too bad I don't have any pics of the floor, it was so hideous!!
