As I mentioned in my previous post, we won't be installing a tub but instead make our shower bigger which means there will be a gap at the end. That little gap will become a small vanity for me. A place where I can do my make up and such. This is that little corner...

last week. My husband gutted the bathroom all by himself a couple weeks ago and this is what our bathroom currently looks like. My husband is an electrician so he is installing all of our new lighting. He wired everything and got it all ready for our new pendant lighting...

Yay it's finally the last Tuesday of the month! So excited to be featuring Loved by Hannah and Eli today. This baby bear onesie is perfect for Levi, he's my baby bear. I love everything about this onesie. It's so soft and it's black, I mean you can never go wrong with black! As soon as it arrived I knew it would be perfect with his little jean suspender shorts. The weather here in TX has been crazy as usual. We had been having such nice weather, sunny and in the high 70's - low 80's and then all of a sudden we got this cold front and rain. Cloudy days make for good photos though so we took advantage of a cloudy day and went out to our front yard to shoot Levi in his cute new onesie.

...and we fell in love! Well I did, my husband wouldn't use those words but he really liked it.
So here is what we decided on....
We plan on leaving the rest of our tile bathroom flooring in tact since we don't want to spend more money tearing it up and replacing it. Plus it's not ugly and it should tie in nicely with the rest of the bathroom.
For the wall color we are going with Silver Drop by BEHR which is what we have on Sarah + Levi's room. I love it! It's the perfect shade of gray.
We plan on painting our cabinets white and framing our mirrors with reclaimed wood we have. As far as lighting I found this on Pinterest and loved it! Showed it to the hubby and he loved it too so for our vanity we are going with pendant lights like these here...
We already removed our old tub and instead of replacing it we plan on making our shower bigger and adding a bench seat to it. There will be some space left next to it which I plan on using as a vanity. A place to do my make up and get ready.
I seriously can't wait! I am so ready to see it all done and share the pictures with you all. Our next step is plumbing and electrical. Thankfully my husband is an electrician and will do all of the re-wiring and installing our next lighting. We also have a friend who is a plumber who will be helping us as well. I will posts photos of the bathroom gutted soon!

I just realized I never shared these on my blog. Little miss Sarah turned FIVE on the 13th and I asked my sister to take a couple photos of her in a nearby bluebonnet field. These were my faves! Since little miss Sarah turned five I'm gonna share five things that I love about her...
ONE She loves to sing.
Sarah and I sing along to the radio and just recently we sang a special together at church. I posted a picture and a little snippet of us singing on instagram. I love it when I'm playing drums at church and I turn to look at her and she's singing and clapping and praising God!
TWO She calls me her best friend.
I love it! Sure she gets mad at me and says I'm no longer her best friend on occasion but I just love the fact that she calls me her best friend. She's my little best friend too.
THREE She's a little mommy.
She not only looks like me she tries to act like me too. She's a good big sister to Levi. She loves taking care of him and feeding him like if she's his mommy.
FOUR She isn't afraid.
She's not afraid to try new things. Take swimming lessons for instance she was more than willing to try and not once did she complain or cry. Her brother on the other hand took a couple weeks to convince and get in the water but not Sarah. She's my little daredevil... most of the time.
FIVE She loves her big brother
There's nothing cuter that watching your kids play together. Sarah looks up to Josh and loves to play with him. Sure they have their moments where they end up fighting and there's crying involved but they mostly get along very well. I love hearing the conversations they have and I love hearing them laugh together. It's the best!

instagram how I hadn't watched the movie yet. The week it came out I went over to a friend's house to craft. My husband was off that entire month of December and he decided to take the kids to see the movie without me. Yep, I'm still not over it till this day, I FINALLY watched it a couple weeks ago and LOVED it! The songs are so catchy! I've been singing them over and over.
We were thrilled when The Glitter Revival offered to send Sarah one of their gorgeous chunky gumball necklaces. Sarah of course picked the Frozen Anna & Elsa Inspired Necklace and then kept asking everyday if her necklace was here. Her necklace arrived earlier this week and she loves it so much she's been wearing it everyday since...
The necklace is even prettier in person! Seriously! The beads are gorgeous! Although the necklace is a bit heavy (expected with large beads) I haven't heard Sarah complain one bit. She wears it all day!
You can find other cute things at The Glitter Revival shop. Here are some of my faves...

GROSS! Just keepin' it real. There's mold and rotting going on behind that wall thanks to a leak that's been on going for quite some time. Thankfully our insurance is covering it. So there's gonna be some fixing and changes to this bathroom. I am not sure how long it will take but I will be posting updates on the blog as we go. My husband is tearing up the shower this afternoon so I will make sure to take pictures of that as well. I'm excited! I've been pinning bathrooms like crazy on Pinterest. We have a few ideas of what we would like and I will share them on here soon but for now you can look at what our bathroom currently looks like which will soon be our before pictures!
I'm so excited! More posts to come soon!

I received the Evenflo Symphony DLX Convertible Car Seat for review purposes but all opinions are my own. This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Evenflo and Latina Bloggers Connect.
Overall we are VERY happy with our new seat! Levi falls asleep in it (as you can see) and seems so comfy. The Evenflo Symphony DLX Convertible Car Seat is
Mr. Levi's got a new big boy car seat. A spiffy one I might add. The infant car seat he was in before was just a tad bit small for him and we were thinking about buying him a new one when we received this one to review. Talk about perfect timing! My first impression when I opened the box and saw the seat was "VERY NICE!" it looks so comfy and the fabric looks very high end.
Levi has been riding in his new seat for a week now and he's been so comfy in it. Let's break it down shall we? Let's go over the PROS + CONS of this car seat so that it helps those of you who are in the market for this type of car seat.
