1.) Great Grandma Mae visited the hospital after falling down. This time she broke her femur. We are very worried and praying she'll heal quickly and have a painless recovery. Prayers for her would be greatly appreciated. We definitely need to schedule a trip to Kerrville to visit family soon. We've been a bit preoccupied with building the house and preparing for the move lately. Grandma is in therapy and doing good.
2.) We went to Magik Theater on Friday night to see the "Velveteen Rabbit." We always buy a season pass when it goes on sale in the fall - we only have three more shows left until the season ends. Our favorite actress was not participating and the show was a little slow and a bit boring this time. The quality time together is something we look forward to each and every time. We know that each month we'll see at least one show together. We still enjoyed the show and laughed on several occasions. Jeff was exhausted from work, I had a migraine, and Alyssa was extremely moody from staying up late (my fault). She wouldn't let me take a photo of her sitting on stage. We ate at iHop (one of Alyssa's favorite restaurants) after the show. I ordered the delicious peaches and cream french toast special. I know . . . not so healthy, but the honey roasted pecans begged me to devour them.
3.) My stepfather had his memorial and everything went smooth. Many people helped my brother and sister. His children from his first marriage attended. This would make him sooo happy. Even though I couldn't attend due to the airfare, car rental, and hotel costs . . . I pray for my family and hope they knew that I was thinking about them all day.
The paint color Jeff chose for the master bath doesn't look as good as we thought. The first color we picked looked horrible! Jeff wanted to try a purple paint, but I am not sure it looks good with the tile color. This will be his third time to paint it if we change our minds again. What do you think? Please let me know your thoughts. He is finished laying the ceramic tile in all bathrooms so I thought I would share a few photos.

Jeff and one of his friends built a few extra walls in the classroom for the bathroom and a divider wall for the "library" section. They also added more insulation to the foam sprayed walls which should make it extremely comfortable during all seasons. There's now a back door now with a large window to bring in more light. This will be the workout area or room. I am super excited! We are hoping to move and set-up the classroom before closing. I still have A LOT to do in preparation of moving day!
The front and side doors were painted brown. We still have a white strip to paint down the center of the front doors. I love that they both open and they are taller than the average door. We should be able to easily move in the furniture.
What??? I forgot to take photos of the guest bathroom tile. Hopefully, I will be able to share them next week.
Miranda at The pebble Pond also shared 5 Things that Makes Her Feel Uncomfortable in conjunction with her Random 5 on Friday post. I thought it would be fun to participate. It is a great way for others to learn more about me.
Five Random Things That Make Me Feel Uncomfortable
I am going to be honest and what you hear you may disagree with, but this is who I am based on my personal life experiences. Please do not judge.
1.) Going out in public being seen by anyone except Jeff and Alyssa without make-up
2.) Wearing a bathing suit
3.) Singing Songs
4.) Being in a Crowded Room of Strangers
5.) Driving in Big Cities - This actually causes me high stress and anxiety so I NEVER do it.
