Cuban Adventures Part 1

As the new year starts, I wanted to take the time to wrap up my thoughts from our 2 day Cuban adventure. We visited the city of Havana and had the absolute best time. The city is such an interesting place, the people are excited to talk to you and the history is incredibly rich! Take a peek at some of the things we did in Havana below.

In our typical fashion of cramming as much into our vacations as possible, we did so much on this trip that I am going to split it up into two posts. Take a peek at some of the things we did in Havana on our first day below.

Rome Round Up

Well the time has finally come to share my Rome travels! For our honeymoon, J and I took a 12 day Mediterranean cruise through Royal Caribbean. And let me tell you, BEST DECISION EVER! We went to 5 countries (6 if you count the Vatican, which I do!) in 12 days. I like to tell people that our cruise was like an appetizer sampler platter. We got to see so many things in a short amount of time and it gave us a taste of each city and now we know where we want to go back and visit for more than 12 hours!

When we booked our cruise we wanted to be able to go on the “official” excursions, but still have exploring time of our own. We were lucky to find an excursion that would get us into Rome and take us from one major attraction to another attraction. Here is what we were able to see in less than 12 hours!

Guest Bedroom Woes

Am I the only person with a room in their house that they barely ever go in and is half decorated which makes you go in it even less? No? Just me? Okay then…

The spare bedroom in my house was pretty meh. When J and I moved into the house, our bed and dresser from our apartment went into the spare room. I registered for a duvet comforter to jazz up the room a little bit and haphazardly threw a few things on a wall so it wasn’t totally bare when we had guests over.

FINALLY… a complete bathroom!

Well our bathroom is finally complete! Even though it took us only a week to install the new floors, toilet and vanity, it took an additional four months to paint…. Don’t ask me how that happened, even I, Queen of Procrastination, am fuzzy on the details!

Peel and Stick Tile How To

Remember a few months ago when I was going to rip out my tile floors and replace them? And then when I decided to make it a whole weekend out of it by replacing the toilet and then the vanity? Ahh those were simpler times.

After a loooooong week of showering in our basement bathroom (with no heat… in March), we were finally able to reclaim our bathroom, new floors and all! Keep on reading for my how to, along with some after pics!

Our Okay Bathroom Gone Bad

We’ve just about finished our mini-renovation of our bathroom and let me tell you, it already looks so much better! I can’t wait to show you what we did! Our bathroom has never been a dream bathroom, but it was functional and nothing was wrong with it… until a few months ago.

How to Refinish a Table

It’s done (well, it’s been done for a while, but I haven’t had the chance to write it up. What can I say, life happens y’all)! I’ve finally completed my project of refinishing the bar table I picked up from Facebook Marketplace for $50. It was not the easiest project I’ve ever done, but I am so happy I put the effort into the table, rather than just painting it white and calling it a day.
