Summer High Lights

With school back in session, I'm mourning the loss of my most excellent summer.  Here's a look at some of the high lights

Good bye summer! Looking forward to a glorious fall filled with cool weather, trips to the apple & pumpkin farm, bonfires, and hoodies.

Bathroom Inspiration

As you can see from a previous post, we're already knee-deep in our guest bathroom renovation.  Truth be told, I'll actually miss the blue tile.  Had it not been cracked in several locations, we probably would have kept it. Too bad so sad.

Anyways, I've been saving bathroom inspiration pictures on Pinterest for quite awhile hoping that they would come in handy.  Take a look.

Barn Lights from Lowes, $39.98

What I like: galvanized sconces lights (we purchased the same one from Lowes,) white subway tile, and a pop of color on the mirror.  Not sure that we'd do pink but maybe some else bold like red or chartreuse.

black bathtub, subway tiles on the wall. have the subway tiles...now if only i could get that bathtub! and if only our bathroom was this spacious...

What I like: predominantly bright white space with pops of color, the subway tile with gray grout, and the shower curtain (bummer that it's no longer available.)

Here's muh boyfriend with the power tools he got last Christmas.  Lookin' good boyfriend!

PERFECT! vanity, towels, mirror, light fixture, everything.

What I like: light paint with dark vanity and floating shelves above the toilet.

We've already made quite a few choices and are hoping everything turns out.

Project in the works

Been back to school for two weeks, so why not embark on another big (okay, maybe medium) renovation?!  Be prepared for more bathroom updates!

Vegas Vacay

About a week ago, I was on my way home from an end-of-the-summer vacation to Vegas.  I had a great time visiting my aunt and spending time with my fam (minus my boyfriend-he had to work.)  Needless to say, I was exhausted from the go-go-go mentality of the city, but I felt like I got to see quite a bit for my first time in Vegas.

Flying (first class I might add) over the desert and mountains

Yorkie Jack was happy to see me

Relaxing in my aunt's gorgeous backyard pool after a busy day of traveling

Little White Chapel.  Don't worry, Luke and Hannah didn't get hitched in Vegas

Outside of Pawn Stars. All the guys were on vacation and we "just missed" the old man.

Wouldn't be a trip to Vegas without a stop at the famous "Welcome" Sign.

 Drinks at the Luxor

Reunited with the guys after their 105 degree day of golfing

 Stop at Margaritaville

Bobby Flay's MESA Grill Restaurant

One of Gordon Ramsey's pub restaurants

Outside Caesar's Palace (don't worry we were inside also.)

Overall this trip was a great way to end the summer!
