It's been a busy weekend in my household! In addition to my Weekly Home Blessing, I worked on my bathroom renovation. It's not complete by a long shot, but every little bit makes me feel better. It's been frustrating to me, being an interior designer and not having a "perfect" house. I have this feeling my home should always look like a page from a magazine. But, I'm working on it slowly, and it is coming together!
The first place was my Master Bathroom. I have hated it from the moment I bought the place. So here's the renovation plan: scrape the ceiling to get the popcorn off! New paint, new vinyl tile floor, New door hardware, new towel bars and hooks, New lighting, and a new Vanity mirror. As I can afford it, I will replace the vanity, replace the closet doors, and add a nice closet organizing system. Here's a picture of the work in progress. Stay tuned for the reveal!
I also made a new recipe: Pumpkin Spice Cake. I got this recipe at my Weight Watchers meeting this week, and decided to try it, since I had a can of Pumpkin I need to use up.
It's really simple, and makes a really moist cake with the texture of a pound cake. And it's YUMMY!!
Just three ingredients:
I put a powdered sugar glaze on top.
Update on Fly-ing with FlyLady.... Making progress on my routines. I have done a lot of cleaning out and organizing. I think I'm going to max out my Goodwill donations for the year! But Mom, I'm making my bed EVERY day. I know you thought that would never happen. And I'm still meal planning. And I'm picking out my outfit before bed, so I'm not having a wardrobe crisis every morning. So, still a ways to go, but definitely progress in the right direction.
This week: Bunco!, and a much-deserved pool day Saturday!
