it's a wonderful life

Some may think from my past few posts that life in the Rodriguez house is in a constant state of bliss.  Ha.  The internet is a deceiving place.  So, I thought that today I'd give you a glimpse into our lives and our home, as it is right now.  


We are in the midst of a bathroom remodel.  We have one bathroom.  So...that's fun.  My dear husband is doing the work himself, while I research and dream up great things to do with the space.  (It's a bit of an unequal arrangement...shhh...don't tell him!)  A couple weekends ago we (a.k.a Dan) exposed the brick chimney in the corner of our bathroom and over the past few days Dan installed a pedestal sink and pulled up the old flooring.  I'm so excited about all of the space we've gained in our tiny bathroom!  This bathroom remodel has been talked about since we bought this house over two years ago.  This fall we made the decision to make it happen this winter, but then a surprise bathtub leak got the whole thing started with a bang (or, rather, a hole in the living room ceiling...a minor detail).  So, amidst writing and administering final exams, hosting and attending holiday parties, making Christmas gifts, and putting Dan on a plane to Nashville, the bathroom is getting a make-over, one step at a time.  

I'm so grateful for all of the work my husband has been and will be putting into this project and I'm so excited to see how lovely, clean, and crisp it will look when finished.  But, for now, we'll be walking over floorboards filled with staples and searching for makeup and toothpaste in the spare bedroom.  

It truly is a wonderful life.
