How did we do?

So we've focused on preparing the guest quarters for our upcoming visit from Jason and Jolene.  What I wanted to get done this weekend was:

1. Fix the hole in the guest bathroom ceiling
Before...

After!

It still needs to be finished obviously, but at least they won't be picking insulation and potato bugs out of their hair!

2. Finish the guest bedroom dresser - ALMOST!! It's totally repainted I just need to find hardware which is turning out to be more difficult than I thought. The holes are 2.5 inches apart and EVERYTHING is 3 inches. I have no desire to patch and drill holes :P (Check out #4 for a small sneak peak!)

3. Clean and prime guest bathroom - so we got distracted by the yard today (mowed the WHOLE thing!) so this hasn't been completed yet, but we'll get to it!

4. Turn the guest bedroom/storage room into an anniversary oasis.


What else can you ask for? New towels, soft sheets, down comforter, Jayhawk pillow?! ;) Okay, so the walls are still pink and it has an awful wallpaper "accent" wall but otherwise, totally an oasis. :)

5. Chairs & Door...Nope...

So not too shabby if I do say so myself! I also scored a desk off craigslist today for 12 bucks! What household projects did you get accomplished this weekend?

You guys were busy! I love the towels – where are they from?

Yes we were, Micheal about passed out from exhaustion last night! We got the towels from Homegoods, I love them! :)

Potato bugs?

I have since looked them up and they actually are stink bugs. Not sure why I thought they were called potato bugs. :) But they're everywhere!

Looks good but I am sure that pictures do not do it justice... Can't wait to see it in real time! 2 days!!!

Don't get TOO excited, I'd hate for you to be let down. That's really how it looks :)
