I did my bathroom makeover this weekend....I used this shower curtain as the inspiration, and painted all the walls Twilight blue (behr paint plus primer). Then i added the matching accessories and ta-da.
Now to change out the light fixture, and i'm going to frame out the mirror with white trim.
So far, I love it- Such an improvement!

New bathroom color on right. Twilight blue by behr., originally uploaded by Makclair.
I have been planning out redoing our guest bathroom- I was inspired by this shower curtain (thank you Walmart!!!) I wanted to pick a color that coordinated with the lightest blue for that bathroom, and my first three attempts (the horizontal stripes) were total FAILS. Obviously they didn't work well with the curtain . So i've been researching online, playing around and looking at paint swatches. I got this paint color today, Twilight Blue and will be painting this weekend!!!
Next step, new mirror and light fixture in there. Then I will finish it out with chocolate brown bath mat and towels.

Connor is growing up!
He had his 18 month old well check last week. He was 26lbs , 11 oz and 33 inches long. He had to get 2 shots, but we're finished with his routine immunizations till 4 years old- YAY!
He's saying all kinds of words now, starting to say phrases like "what you doing?" and loves to dance to music.
He will move up to the Toddler 2 class at daycare in the next few weeks and loves to bring home art projects from school.
He's already been in the pool several times this summer since our vacation, but I haven't gotten any pictures yet. I got him this sprinkler for our yard to help cool down in the summer heat and he thinks it is pretty fun.

Anyway, we had been planning this trip for a while...the last "vacation" Patrick and I have taken was a little trip down to St. Simons when I was 5 weeks pregnant with C. Let me tell you, I was SICK already and it was cold and rainy. Still nice to get away, but I have been in NEED of some beach time. We did go to a conference in Myrtle Beach 2 summers ago, but to me a vacation isn't getting up at 6 to attend lectures all morning. NO!!!
So, we randomly picked Hilton Head Island and found a condo and had faith that it would be great, and it was!!! We used VRBO to rent our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo. It was incredible.
This is our view from the living room:
It is a little blurry, but yeah, PERFECT view of the beach.
The kitchen was great, had everything we needed. Connor had his own bedroom and bathroom so we had plenty of room to spread out. The balcony was perfect and we ate almost every meal out there. We rented a condo in Palmetto Dunes, and will certainly be back there. Message me for more details.
Connor's first walk on the beach:
He loved playing in the sand:
and the surf...
Isn't this the sweetest???
One night we actually met up for dinner with a couple of my residency friends and their spouses and we learned something...Connor loves corn on the cob!!!!
We did a lot of eating in HHI, as evidenced by this photo:
This was Connor's breakfast at Stacks Pancake House, but he didn't eat it all :)
Our best beach photo- it was sunny!
Connor was a good napper every afternoon which led to a lot of this:
Anyway, it was a great trip, and we can't wait to go back!!!!!
1. I have a new phone- this is the HTC incredible. I LOVE it. However, I can't really blog on it, and I use it a lot for the internet vs the laptop. Therefore, if i'm just wasting time online, i'm not blogging. It has a great camera on it and I can instantly upload to flickr or facebook, so that's awesome.
