A Wedding Weekend!

This weekend was another crazy one. We traveled back to Jackson, MO. I was in a wedding this weekend! It was a great time. Ashley was the bride and a friend from college. It was so great to see all the girls from the Education Dept. We are all so grown up with "real" jobs!! :) I will try to post some pictures soon. More importantly than anything...TODAY IS MY LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!! I really thought June 29th would NEVER come! Teachers have to come tomorrow for "close-out" stuff, but today is the last day with students. This day is bittersweet. I will write more about these last days in a later post, way to many emotions right now!

Well I am late again, oh well....I will get it on Friday sometime!?!??!

Master Bedroom:

The pictures aren't in a really good order...sorry! Below is one of our dressers. We recently bought them from Ikea! Our friends have an Ikea delivery business. Check out their site! It's such a great idea! We love them!

Below is our closet. It did not look like this when we moved in. My dad and Mark had to spend an entire day trying to hang better closet rods and shelves and my WONDERFUL (and needed) baskets because we have plaster walls. It's so hard to hang anything around here.
Below is our T.V. wall. Mark did this all by himself. Such a great guy! We have our DirecTV box in a closet on the other side of the wall. I love WIRELESS!!!! :)

I didn't realize this picture was fuzzy until I upload it. This is the dresser on the other side. (my side)



Here is the picture of the master bedroom from the hall. We love our room and have a REALLY hard time sleeping when we aren't in a king!?!!? Spoiled...I know. (but we sleep with 2 dogs, 1 that's over 100 lbs)

Another week down....

For most of you June is summer, not for me! I work at a Charter School in the City of St.Louis and we have extended school year. (crazy...I know) Our last day of school is June 30th. Next week will be our last full week!! I can't wait, 7 more days of school. (I remember when there was 70 days!) This week felt like it crawled by. It was so slow for me. We went on a class field trip yesterday and I have to say it was one of the best days I have had here. It was so fun! We went to the St.Louis zoo. My mom and sister made the trip up to be chaperones. We had an amazing day...nevermind the "it feels like 105 degrees" weather! I have 25 students in my class, only 2 have ever been to the zoo. It was such an amazing experience to be able to take them for the first time. I LOVE ZOO's!!! The St. Louis Zoo holds a very special place in my heart. Mark proposed to me there! Love it! It was so fun to see the students faces when they were seeing animals they had never seen before. Some of us really take things for granted and this reminded me to be happy with everything I have. The Lord has truly blesses Mark and I and our families. I took lots of pictures. I will post them soon, I hope!?!?!

This week is featuring BATHROOMS! Mark and I have 1 1/2 bathrooms in our house. We hope to one day make it 2 full baths, but that time will someday come. I put the 1/2 bath first. It is downstairs. Not only have we not touched this bathroom the people who lived here have not touched it since the decorated it the FIRST time! :0


Yes, the wallpaper is GREEN, grass green.

The light, oh the light. They left this here and I actually really like it. When we re-do this bathroom I am going to keep it for sure! (maybe in here, maybe not?!!?)

This is the upstaris bath. We have done quite a bit of work on this one. We have replaced the mirror and the lighting.


Our doors don't stay open well, especially when the attic fan is on. This is just a decor item from Hobby Lobby. Love it! We used it as a door stopper??!?!


Candle: Pier 1 "Oceans" Favorite smell ever!!!!

If you have been following any of my past home tour posts you will see we love Wylands! These are our newest! It's a set of 4 prints, we got an amazing deal off ebay!!!! They came double matted and everything!

You don't have to look to close to see all the white. Since we just got all the prints I had to move some shelves around in the bathroom. I haven't yet painted over my touch-ups. The top shelf has 2 sandcastles keepsakes from when I was a child. The bottom shelf has 2 Swarovski's that my sister-in-law got for me. She started me a collection, I get one every year from her for my b-day! I love them! They are the ocean ones!

Last, just a picture from the hallway!

Better late than never...


I really should change the day to this...Home Tour Any Day but Friday. LOL I don't know if I have ever actually posted it on a Friday. I know it's bad, I just forget or run out of time. Oh well...last week was Offices. We do have one of those. (week before was baby/children's room, none of those) I have just a few pictures of this room. The office is probably my favorite room in the house. It was the first room we completed all theway.


Above: This is the picture from the hallway.

Above: This was/is a real fish. Mark caught this in Hawaii when he was deep sea fishing. (It's a Yellow Fin Tuna/Ahi)

This sits right under the fish. The top has a picture of us from our honeymoon in Hawaii. Underneath on the bottom shelf are our diplomas. I love it! Also you will see a spine, yes a human spine to the right of the furniture. A wonderfull addition to our home when Mark began Logan School of Chiropractic.

Above: I love this unit. TARGET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gotta love it!! I do not like clutter at all. I am a very clean person, also it' s just less to dust. :) These shelves have some pictures and misc. keepsakes of ours. The flowers on the 3rd shelf are dried flowers from my wedding bouquet, what a memory. My sister has one with her Maid of Honor flowers and my mom has one with some flowers from both of our bouquets. "Thanks mom" Towards the bottom are some of Mark's favorite things. Awards from college golf, Team Captain awards and other cool stuff.


Above: Here is the desk. It is messy I know but oh well. I didn't want to clean jsut for picture. Sorry. Above the desk is a Wyland print, a Christmas gift from Mark's parents. Also notice the full body skeleton, another addition to our house as Mark began Logan. The hat was my touch. It makes him smile while he is studying!?!?

There is our office!!!! (almost a week late)

It was a relaxing weekend!

Like I mentioned on Friday we traveled to the Lake of the Ozarks with Mark's siblings and their families/boyfriends. It was such a relaxing time. I know there are lots of pictures but we are so proud to be Aunt Em and Uncle "D" (somehow it's Mark's new name, given to him by Cruz) Mark was Cruz best friend this weekend. It was so cute. I loved watching Mark interact with a baby, well he will be 2 in Aug. but a small child. He is going to be a great dad SOMEDAY! Enjoy the pictures!

Elementary Teachers...

Well, I am home...taking a sick day, without a choice. I have pink eye. Ahhh!!! I haven't stopped doing laundry since I got home from the doctor. I feel so gross! There were over 10 kids sent home last week with what was thought to be pink eye, so when my eye started itching yesterday, I didn't mess around. I can't go be around my students for 24 hours...that puts me at home today. This weekend we are going to the Lake of the Ozarks with Mark's brother and his family so this day will give me some time to prepare. When I return to school there will be NO more 4:00 days or 5:00 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We get out at 3:00 after today! There are only 19 days left, I can't believe it!
