Good news... my gymnasts have been frequenting my blog. Yesterday they yell at me, "Darce! Take a picture of us and put it on your blog!" Then I turn around to find this...
They decided that conditioning would be more fun if they hiked up their shorts. Indeed, conditioning was more fun with a frontal wedgey.
Okay, back to our normally scheduled blogging! Time for the next rooms in our tour of the Darin/Darcy household. I am way too excited to do one room a day so I am going to show you our 2nd bedroom, the scrap room and one of our bathrooms. Tomorrow will be the grand finale of our bedroom because there's a supa cool story behind it. Again, you will be drooling over my hubby. Not just because he's cuter ones cuteness should be allowed, but because he's incredibly romantic as well. (Don't worry.. tomorrow's tour of our bedroom will be rated PG for my viewing audience.. no skanky poles or anything, just a super sweet story of how my bedroom came to be!)
O-key, dokey! Here is the before pic of our 2nd bedroom: BORING! This room actually wasn't too bad. There was just a broken window, a few holes in the walls and no closet.
Here's the after pic: We are using it as a workout room right now (Darin's modeling that in the pic.. thank you Darin). We used to have a bed in there for our guests when they spent the night but after 6 months of marriage and we were "guest-less" we realized that either #1 no one loves us or #2 the family that comes to see us more than likely stays at our parents homes. So, the room becomes a workout space that we need to use more than we actually do!
Okay, you all are going to hate me for this next room. In the midst of remodeling this home, Darin found time to spoil me some more and construct a scrap table, book shelves and wall shelves for me. The top of my table is so cool. I have a nifty hole on the top of the table with my trash can underneath so I just swipe all my trash into my hole and WALA! it's in the trash. We (more like I) still have plans for the underneath of the scrap table with drawers and a cabinet door to hide the filing cabinet. My filing cabinet houses my 8.5X11 paper & scraps in files by color.
Here's my 12X12 paper storage thingy Darin made: It still awaits me staining it. I still can't figure out if I want to organize my paper by color or manufacturer. Any suggestions? I see pros and cons to both ways.
And here is the chair that sits in the corner for Darin to watch football in while I scrap. We both are extremly happy to do our own thing together. OOOO.. also note the stripes on the wall with the window on it. Yep, stole the idea from SEI paper. And what's funny is that I think I could count on my hand the number of times I've scrapped anything SEI. Just really thought those stripes would look pretty on my walls!
Okay, and for the last room of the day, bathroom #1 before: You guys, people actually lived in this house in this condition. Not sure how.. our neighbors told us it was a drug house. So far, we have not found any narcotics hidden in the walls. I'm sure I'll blog about it if we do.
Here is the after picture of bath #1: When I first moved in, Darin didn't understand why the towels to the right are just for pretty.. you don't actually wipe your hands on them. So confusing for him. This bathroom was totally gutted and remodeled.
And tomorrow the tour continues. Your really going to be in love with Darin after tomorrow! Back off, ladies.. HE'S MINE!!!
