I've been bad!

I have neglected my camera which in turn, I have neglected my blog.

You see, what is the point in posting a post without pictures? Most people seem to respond better to the post that have pictures, right?! So since I really haven't been in the "picture taking mood" these days, I haven't blogged. That darn chain of effect, huh?!

I did take my camera on a recent outing, just over a week ago. However, because of the neglect, I forgot to charge my battery on my camera so I didn't get to take as many photos I had hoped for. Nope!

Ya see, we went to Yosemite. Such a beautiful place! We went with a friend and her two daughters. There was snow too (I prefer it in the Spring time though, not so cold). The girls had so much fun playing in it.

Besides that.....so much has been going on.

Let's first start off with......I'm gonna be an Aunt!!!! I can't wait!! Okay, maybe I was already an Aunt on my husband's side of the family but it's not the same when it's my own brother having a baby!! My brother and his wife have been trying for 8 yrs and finally they are prego! My brother is gonna be 40 this yrs so he's pretty happy that it finally happened! Woo Hoo!

Then, we have decided to re-do our master bathroom (again). The first time we redid it, it was right after we bought the house. There was wallpaper (bleck), a big mirror and that old '80's brown wood looking vanity. So we got rid of the wallpaper, painted the walls (Pink. Don't laugh....I had a vision....lol!) and painted the vanity white.

We've already primed and got the new color on. New baseboards, light fixture, shower curtains and rod but we just need to go get the new vanity and mirror. We had already purchased a vanity over the weekend, got it home and put it in the bathroom but because our bathroom isn't big (at all!) and where the light fixture is, we were only able to scoot the vanity over so far because it had drawers and with the plumbing, it only allowed it over so far that where it finally sat, it didn't line up with the light fixture. It was all off so we took it back. We found a new one and now it's just getting it home. Not an easy task since we don't own a truck and we've been borrowing from my brother.

So, here are the before pics.
{Excuse the mess. Too much crap!}

Oh, and as you can see....we have a brown rug and brown toilet seat cover. We recently bought those cause the others needed to be tossed and since we knew what color we were switching to, we got those.

I will share the after pics once it's completed.


Since Christmas, we keep creating new projects which has lead to the neglect of yet ANOTHER thing here in my little abode. Our Christmas decorations are STILL up. Yes, you heard me right. You see, my husband and I got new bedroom furniture for ourselves right before Christmas. It was our Christmas gift for each. So with that, we had to take stuff out of our room to make room for the new. Things from the room got sprawled out into our computer room. Then, my daughter got a new doll house from Santa and so we had to make room in her room for it which lead to taking things out of her room, like her dresser which was a long one and we brought in her old one that is a tall one. Then we had to go through and purge things she doesn't play with. All that lead to stuff in the hall and in the computer room again.

With all this going on and all the stuff all over, I didn't want to try and do the Christmas stuff too. It would have just been One. Big. MESS! It already is but it would have been worse. Can't have that. So.....I've held off on putting away the decorations. Until today that is. Yes, that is my chore for today. Joyous me. I can't wait to get order back into my house again! Perhaps then I can focus on not neglecting my camera which will mean not neglecting all of you!

Love the bathroom color! So girly lol! I know what you mean, though, the new year brings in so many projects and things we aim to complete, and it just gets hectic! I've been blogging like crazy on the photography blog, but reeeaally neglecting my little family blog lol. Glad to see you back!
