2017 in Review

I know everyone is ready to leave 2017 in the dusty rear view mirror but I'm a sucker for year in reviews so I have to do one.  2017 has been a bit of a exhausting year in a way that isn't as satisfying as the exhaustion of renovating or room makeovers.  I'm looking forward to a more energized 2018 but it's worth a look back.  Here are the highlights of 2017.

In January we celebrated Agatha turning 4 with an epic Beauty and the Beast Birthday party complete with extremely popular mimosa bar for the moms and dads. I will definitely be doing another one of those for a future party.

In February I got out the power tool and made this fun little diy bath caddy for all of us binge watchers.

I also had the opportunity to create this super girly mom nook for my bestie.

February also held the very new experience of having our house used tv production set .  Shortly thereafter I made my required blogger pilgrimage to Magnolia.

In April we took our first international family of 4 trip overseas to France hitting Euro Disney in the process.

In May I gave my dining room a refresh.

In June we did a major master bedroom makeover at our beach place. I love sleeping in here.

In July, we made a Gilligan Island style DIY Tiki Bar

I also shared this amazing hallway makeover complete with hand painted floor.

In August we celebrated Oscar's first birthday with an at home luau

This black and white bathroom I helped design was a fun one.

In September I shared this family room makeover I designed for a friend.

October was crazy busy. I gave my living room a refresh, I went to Cuba and of course I decorated for Halloween.

In November I started slow Christmas decorating and finished Oscar's baby book.

And December we had all kinds of holiday fun.

It was a very full year around here! Happy New Year!
