Back To The Real World

Our life has been hoppin lately! We are currently sitting on an airplane on our way home to Colorado from Florida (had a fantastic time with friends from high school) we left from Florida to the Bahamas on 5 day cruise (if you ever have a chance to hit up Freeport it is Divine as is Atlantis *SOO MUCH FUN*) 
I am sharing some awesome pictures from the beach and snorkeling….including our swimming adventures with a friggin barracuda *bahhh* 
okay I know y’all want to know the highlights of our trip zoo here is the not so party kid guide to cruising (and not dying too much)
*Go with a Corporate group who will pay for you because than you can afford all the alcohol and shore excursions
*Make sure you pay your bills before you leave, you will not be able to afford them when you get home
*Freestyle cruise is amazing and has soo much food you may get fat- much like I did
*Within your corporate group, seek out those who appear to have children, then drink with them. Just like you they have no desire to see shows and shit, they want to get drunk
*If you are lucky you will find crazy Canadians and maybe they will get deported too bahahahaha that was a highlight that I am not at liberty to talk about πŸ˜‰
*Over all just enjoy yourselves, the food is yummy and someone else will clean up after you 
I can honestly say I can’t wait for Corey to win next years cruise because it was seriously phenomenal and having time back home didn’t hurt πŸ™‚ We also finally bought a new computer which means while we still won’t have internet at home we will now have a none iPhone way of posting blogs and I can legit type up recipes and post for y’all πŸ™‚

Free Ladders…

I have systematically gone through each room of our new house and designed it in my head, except my brain is hopped up on sugar and caffeine and I don’t actually live there yet so I haven’t actually done anything nor do I have measurements for rooms and what not! But yesterday I went to my mother in laws house and found this darling sofa table in their pile of things to be fixed, so post move I am going to pick it up, fix it, and paint it white for under our new mirror (well new because of spray paint…look for the Spray Paint Has Consumed Me post!) I am LOVING it! I also found an old wooden ladder with tons of water damage that I will pick up and do something like this

But Painted Aqua for all of my Grandfathers History and Encyclopedias! How fab?! I love to read so I will now have a place to put books!!!
I am so excited to display different family pictures, mix it up, and even add some family silhouettes! I am hoping to do rock cottage meets modern twist with an emphasis on ease, fun and clean! The challenge is…how cheep can we do it? Total thus far $16 for spray paint, primer and a table cloth- goal under $100 (not including our new bed and bedding for the boys!)
