Best of 2011

It's time to wrap up 2011 and take a look at the highlights of the year.. 

One project that we got done this year that I'm super excited about is the...
It was slow and steady that's for sure but I'm so happy that it's done and is a nice comfortable room for the girls to play in. Tons of details here, and here.

We did a little magic to the hallway, and even though it's 6 or 7 feet of space that usually gets unnoticed I love the new closet doors we built.

Definitely better than they were. Plus the white is so fresh and pretty compared to the black.  

I did a quick face lift to the bathroom with some fabric art.

Put a Bird on it. 

Worked on the kitchen a little bit by adding a Chalkboard wall, Kitchen shelves, beadboard backsplash, and some bun feet.

Had some fun in the mantel department
Some favorites..

'Twas quite the year. I hope you have fun browsing the links and going through the memories with me. :)

And, of course it wouldn't be possible to run this place alone, and thanks to my ah-mazing sponsors this year.

Thank you ladies from the bottom of my heart.. Thank you!

And, of course there would be NO blog without the love and support from you lovely ladies. Every reader..subscriber..every one of you. You mean more to me than you'll ever know. Through your encouragement as I fluff my home, mother my children and learn how to make this thing called marriage work. You're my cheerleaders and there isn't anything quite like real friends is there? Even if you friends are thousands of miles away. I'm honored to call you friends.

Group hug.

This year was pretty tough for some of us, so I'm praying for us all to have one hell of a 2012. Can I get an Amen?

Love. Just love.
