We spent most of last week fixing up Drew's new room, which used to be just an office. We are very pleased with it, and he seems to love it. Hopefully a prospective buyer will, too!

We installed refurbished antique doors where there were no doors before. They match the door to the other spare room, which is very convenient. We had to paint them, as well, as they were very well loved by previous owners and had many previous coats of paint and scratches that needed to be covered up. And we painted the room blue, as it's a little boy's room. Here's some before and after shots.

10 Things You're Really Good At
It's self-promotion day!!!

  1. Singing really high, first thing in the morning. It's hereditary, my Mama is the best singer EVER! I'm not as good as her (she has perfect pitch, like Julie Andrews....however, I don't), but I can hold my own with people who do it for a living.
  2. Being a mom. It is my true joy, and I love it. Too bad I don't get paid to do it!
  3. Baking snickerdoodles. They are my signature cookie!
  4. Cross-stitch. Bubba's Mom is always commenting on how neat the back looks!
  5. Typing. I can type really fast.
  6. Designing a road. I can design the CRAP out of a road! Too bad I'm unemployed at the moment. But, I've got Mad Skills!
  7. Cooking. I love to cook, and I have yet to find a recipe I couldn't do. There are some that I choose NOT to do, but that doesn't mean I couldn't if I wanted to.
  8. Finding my way around. I have an EXCELLENT sense of direction, and I love maps, so I am never lost. Plus, I think I'm a good driver, although that is a matter of opinion for some people.
  9. Making lists. Now, accomplishing everything on those lists is another story, er, blog.

What about number 10? What do YOU think I'm good at?

I am jonesin' for a vacation about now. We haven't been anywhere that wasn't visiting family or for a wedding since we moved to Houston, and I have the travel bug.

  1. Germany
  2. Zihuatenejo, Mexico
  3. Southern France/Northern Spain
  4. Copenhagen, Denmark
  5. Destin, Florida
  6. Pacific Northwest (Seattle, Portland, etc.)
  7. Bahamas
  8. Montreal, Canada
  9. Scotland
  10. Alaska
Hopefully we'll get to visit No. 5 pretty soon, as the others are a bit outside of travel by car with a munchkin.
