Life is getting in the way of my blogging

Sorry I have not updated in so long! I was hoping that my next update would be pictures of our newly renovated powder room that we worked on all last week, but alas, we were side tracked and the reno is currently about 85% done. We have 2 full bathrooms and one powder room at our house, but during the inspection before we purchased it we discovered that the guest bathroom upstairs had a leaky toilet that needed a new seal so once we took possesion our first order of business was to just shut off the valve in there and consider that bathroom a write off until we could renovate it. Then we demolished our hideous powder room and have been delayed in putting it back together due to Wren's early arrival. So we have been living the last month on our lone toilet in the master bath.


Fast forward to Saturday morning when I go downstairs and walk right into our indoor waterfall, oops, I mean kitchen. Some time during the night our master toilet (aka, ONLY toilet) cracked and leaked for hours down into the kitchen. Water was literally spewing from the light fixtures (sounds safe huh?). To sum this story up, don't put all your eggs in one toilet.


Anyways, as of today we now have 3 functioning toilets, which is a record in this house. And I can't wait to share pictures of our new powder room once we install a new light fixture and pick out a faucet.



On to more fun topics: shopping!


Today Wren and I went on our first Mall excursion. I was desperate for some post baby clothes and even though I have recently snagged some awesome pieces online, nothing really beats strolling the mall for the afternoon and I definitely could use some new stuff after wearing the same clothes for the last 4 or 5 months of my pregnancy.


My favorite purchase of the day? This jacket from Urban Outfitters:

So sorry about your kitchen waterfall-hope there wasn't much damage, but at least you have 3 working toilets. :)
