7 days in and I am now screaming
 “Happy New Year”!!!! 
I am wishing you, a happy, healthy and prosperous year for 2013!

I was asked if I received some of the things off my Christmas Wish List, and I am proud to say YES!! 
I was blessed to receive 2 of the things that I wished for.
I received, nail polish and 2 necklaces with camera charms.
Check it out!!

I love my gifts!
 I was also surprised to see a small pretty wrapped box under the tree for ME!
First, I was happy that my husband did learn something from my gift wrapping tutorial, there was even a bow on it. I would have taken a picture, but the excitement got the best of me.
Second, I was excited cause you know what a little square box mean……. JEWELRY!!!
While ripping the paper I was visualizing me rocking a new pair of earrings, or a ring, or a necklace, or a watch…..
With a huge smile on my face I was greeted with a gift card?!??!?
With questioning eyes I looked at my husband a little disappointed and he quickly stated that it was to redo the bathroom!!
The excitement that I first experienced before the confusion quickly came back and doubled over!!
 I love LOVE redecorating, especially my own home. 
I even think I love to redecorate more than receiving jewelry.
So here we go!
 This is a picture of our bath not long after we moved in, all that was added was the rug and shower curtain. Needless to say these items did nothing for this room up against that wallpaper.

That wallpaper was so horrible that we quickly painted this space, and let me tell you, paint can make the world of a difference.

Just by paint alone, it made the rug and shower curtain look like they belonged in here.
Paint is a quick fix and will not break the bank. This room maybe cost me $20-30 to paint. If that.
I can’t remember, cause we like to shop the “OOPS paint at Home Depot and Lowe’s, all that simply is- is paint that someone mixed but later decided that they didn’t want, the paint is perfectly fine. You can sometimes find whole gallons for as little as $5.00 and if you are really lucky you may just find the color you want or a color that you can fall in love with.
So defiantly check out the “Oops” paint next time you are there, and tell them that “Simone sent you"!
Be warned that-that will not get you a discount or anything.
 I just always wanted to say that, and the clerk may look at you weird too.

So the toilet has been removed and this is what we found… That area that hadn’t been painted, left traces of the past, not one, not two, not even 3, but 4 wall coverings, now that is a shame. No one had the nerves to remove the 1st wallpaper, not even us. 

Maybe one day I will build the courage to bring this wall back to its roots, but not today. And we are moving forward and breaking ground!


And I am so excited!! 
Check back for updates.

(P.S. I want to apologize for the horrible pictures on this post I have been lazy about buying batteries for my flash.)
