Our New Dining Room

Those of you who have been following me on Instagram for some time now know my husband had the whole month of December (2013) off so I made a list of DIY projects for him to do and guess what? He did two of them! They are both in our dinning room. I posted our DIY Chalkboard Planked Wall earlier this year and today I'm sharing the rest of the dining room including the gorgeous farmhouse table he built us. I was having a hard time picking out the perfect dining chairs so I had you guys help me here. I finally decided on the IKEA INGOLF chairs but we didn't purchase them until just last month. I am loving our new dining room! Especially because of the table my husband built! Isn't it GORGEOUS?

This is what our dining room looked like last year...
I love looking back and seeing all of the progress we've been making to our little home. We still have TONS left to do but little by little we have been making it our own.

My Brother In Law's Wedding + Updates

First of all I'm sorry I've been MIA lately. Summer has been crazy but very fun!

My Bother in Law got married yesterday and I wanted to share a couple of photos with you all and also give you a couple updates on what's been up here in The Medrano residence. The wedding was beautiful! It was a small backyard wedding but it was perfect as you can see from the pictures I snapped from my phone. Wish I could have gotten more!

On to the Updates
Our bathroom remodel is still in progress. There's still tons to be done but we lack the time and the money too so it's been a slow process but I'm hoping it will be completely done within the next month or two and I will share the before and afters with you all here. Meanwhile you can catch little sneak peeks here and there on Instagram

So you might or might not have noticed that we didn't have a Trendy Tots linky party last month. Emily and I have decided not to continue with it for a variety of reasons. I loved it but it actually was a lot of work even though it was just a monthly thing. Thank you SO MUCH to those of you who participated and linked up to our parties. You guys ROCK! <3

Things will be very quiet around my blog until the kids start school again. I just can't seem to find time to blog and I don't really want to try to find time because I'd rather spend it with the kiddos so if you miss me and you want to see what we are up to follow us on IG. Because you know I can't quit that! I love taking photos and sharing them! <3

Hope your Summer is going well!
