I don't know about you, but painting a room is a royal pain.

Have you ever started the process thinking you had everything you needed, only to realize you would be making 3 more trips to Home Depot before the project is over?

We started off by steaming the wallpaper off the walls, then we scraped the glue off, and we thought we'd be ready to paint after that, but we were wrong.

We then had to sand down the walls, fill in the holes, sand down the filling, and respackle yet again. After that was over we had to wipe down the walls to remove any dust AND THEN we were ready to paint, but not paint - PRIME.

Our home was completely covered in wall paper, so this was a very long process, and I wanted to share my painting experience.

Happy Painting! :-P

Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Today is my mother's 56th birthday, and honestly she doesn't look a day over 42.

I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to my mom for all the days she stayed home from work to take care of me when I was sick, for helping me with my wedding plans and keeping me from getting the jitters, for always supporting and encouraging me in what I wanted to do in life. She is the best, and I couldn't have asked for a better mom!
