Sixteen Candles.

My mom and I had a great idea to surprise my younger sister with a brand new bedroom for her 16th Birthday..

McElle left Monday morning to dance camp,
and was going to be back Wednesday night.

luckily we had Jon to help,
but we still had quite the project ahead of us..

Unfortunately I didn't take before pictures of what her room looked like before the make-over..

but just to give you an idea..

there was an awful 80's looking wood shelf hanging,
which matched the ceiling fan perfectly.
Beige Walls that were a little too oily for my liking.
No theme, or anything that coordinated with anything else,
and pictures tacked over all four walls.

We transformed the room completely
(other than the carpet, which will be happening next summer)

NEW Paint,
Ceiling Light,
and Furnishings.

I would say we did a pretty ok job..

We still need to add some window treatments,
and a couple finishing touches.

Let's just say she LOVED it!

1st marital fight..

We finally got around to developing our waterproof camera from our Honeymoon,

These were taken right before Jon just about tipped us into the middle of the ocean.

I saw my life flash before my eyes..
no lie.

Lions, Tigers, & Monkeys

Saturday well spent at the Zoo,
but I could have gone without the flying fruit bats.
