Yeahhhhhh I made it ....

Yeah I made it and actually got a 100% ,even through all the changes ....I was excited ,even got a high five from the store manager ....WOOT!!! I am so excited that all that lack of sleep and living at the store basically paid off ...I came home today and took a 41/2 hour nap ...lol I am hoping I wll be back to normal soon ..Now I have 9 days until my mother comes from Kentucky to visit ...She has never been to Texas ...I am super excited but have so much to do ...We throw the annual fourth of July bash at our house every year ...Last year it was like 6 days after we moved in to this new house ..Lmao That was a trick but we managed ...It still had that hideous wallpaper that is shown on Guppy's blog ...lmao And we have changed soooo much since then ..Thank God ...lol Included is an after shot of the painting we did ...We did old world Italy in the dining room instead of whatever that other was suppose to represent ..lol Anyway I am excited to finally get family here to visit ...I have been here three years and have had none come visit yet ...Luckily we have been back home like 3 times .Ok well I am still sleepy and my thoughts are going all over the place and I feel like I am rambling ...Plus I am starving and need to run to the grocery and pick something up to cook ...A woman's job is never done ...

Here are some pics to enjoy ...Let me know if you like the difference ..

Here is a pic of the wall in progress ...ignore all the stuff in the pic still and the missing trim at the time ..lol I will have to post pics of the finished product soon ...But in this you can atleast see the faux finish we did ...
