Good morning Ladies ! As January rolls on we are getting typical winter temps and weather for Minnesota. Yesterday morning was 3f with wind ! It did warm up later in the day though. Today is starting off at 10f and we are promised between 3 and 6 inches of snow. I hope the weather is nice where you are !
Last Saturday I went to my son’s first basketball game ! it is a local league and he was playing against one of his best friends . I was chatting to his friends Mom during game so the rivalry was not too intense. He is liking it but is working on the finer skills of the game and trying to do better at them.
The rest of Saturday was spent doing chores around the house (never ending right!) On Sunday we did Church online again then in the afternoon watched some football. Two of my blogging friends teams were in opposition! Mackenzie and Courtney The Chiefs just beat out the browns ! Congrats Courtney, very hard luck Mackenzie.
Monday was Martin Luther King day, what an inspirational man he was. It was also my Mom’s birthday, happy distant Birthday Mom!!Tuesday our Kindergartener and 2nd grader started back in the classroom! I am so happy they get to go back , with distancing procedures in place. Now there are 2 at home , and they will return in mid February. The rest of the week was pretty straighforward.
Lower bath remodel!!
As promised last week here are the completed lower bath Pics !
We added the same floor covering we used in the upper bath from last weeks post. We added wallpaper on one wall , what do you think? The linen cabinet is existing . We took out our pedestal sink and put in this new vanity cabinet and top along with new faucet. We took out the old medicine cabinet and replaced it with this new recessed one. The shower has a sliding door but it is a dated brass and the curtain looks better in my opinion to cover it! You can still see it peeking out .
Please rate out of 10 this navy and Marigold empire waist floral dress from Zulily , see here
Have a lovely weekend and week ahead everyone, Terri xo.
Good morning Ladies how are you today? Welcome from a wet/snowy /slushy Minnesota . Usually it would be just snowy but our temps have been higher than usual and we have been getting some rain also. We got a few inches of snow . It is supposed to get cooler over the coming days. I see that the record high temp today for instance is 37f or 2.7c set in 2006!!
I did not post last week , time got away from me I guess. It was a pretty relaxing weekend overall though. We got the 2 bathrooms completed that we were working on though. You want to see pics now !? I will post the basement Bathroom next week.
I think it came out well ! We added new heavy duty linoleum floor covering . Also we put in a window that had never been there before , then decided to go with a wallpaper on that wall. We also repainted an off white/light blue color. You can see the doors and cabinet are a traditional stain finish but we wanted to add white trim with maybe painting the doors at a later date. This is a shared bathroom , the door on the right is our Master bedroom. A few years ago we put in the double sink, that was a great help! It also has a bathtub with shower and shower stall. I had never seen it before we moved in. The shower stall has a door but it looks better with a curtain as it is a little dated! We added curtains and accent pieced on walls and above toilet.
The kids start going back to school next week ! The 2 little ones go on Tuesday , they are excited to get back. Then our 5th grader is the following Monday with our middleschooler starting in early February. We can hope for normalcy to return bit by bit . Our restaurants also reopened last Monday , I am excited for that!
This morning our son plays his first basketball game! One parent can attend and we will swap as he has 2 games total.
Good morning Ladies! It felt strange typing in January above but we are indeed in a new month and new year ! I am happy for that and looking forward to better days ahead and getting back to some normalcy as soon as it is possible to safely do it .
It has been a week of pretty much staying home for the kids since Christmas, usually they would be going to friends houses during Christmas vacation , or they would come here to play with the newly delivered toys or games. We are making the best of it and they are playing nicely among themselves for the most part!
The weather has been pretty good for this time of year , we had snowfall during the week, about 4 inches , we are living in a winter wonderland as per usual in Minnesota!
Over the past 3 days we have been renovating our basement bathroom. we put in new flooring , wallpaper medicine cabinet and vanity light . All done by ourselves , its nice to have a handyman ! Pics to follow in later post .
We are going to relax today, The kids go back to distance learning school On Monday and possibly in school later in January.
