What I did today!

Today has been a pretty productive day! We woke up early and had breakfast and then I studied!

Around 1:30 our new mattress was delivered for our guest room! I was so excited! After it arrived I realized that I hadn't bought a bed skirt for the bed and it needed one! Luckily I was able to improvise and I took a queen size yellow gingham flat sheet, ironed it and it makes a lovely bed skirt! I am really glad it didn't cost anything too! It seems like we just keep spending money for things that we need to make our apartment our home and I was getting tired of spending!

The guest bed!

My cute little night stand. A wicker hamper I found at Goodwill.

The curtain I made for the guest room!

The guest room! Just in time for guests! John David's sister, Jill, arrived tonight to visit so the room was ready for her! Of course since we have the guest room we now need more guests!

I have been looking for a cream shower curtain for the guest bathroom also and last night I found one at Goodwill for $2.99! To say the least I was very excited because it was a simple, cream shower curtain in great condition for a great price! I didn't have any shower curtain hooks for it so I made my own with ribbons! I do think it turned out very cute and gives it a little color!

Guest towels!

The guest bath!

My little bookshelf that my mom and I made. It is now in my hall upstairs! It is kid friendly with Little House on the Prairie books, Little Golden Books, and even a toy tractor!

Today was also the first day I have actually been able to enjoy my new home and feel domestic! I made homemade Pimento Cheese Spread, Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies, and Spinach Chicken Alfredo Pizza for supper! The pizza turned out beautiful! John David even took a few pictures!

I am also working on a pumpkin roll also, I just have to finish the filling! And all these yummy desserts are not just for us, the state FFA officers are coming here tomorrow to film the first episode of this season's FFA Today. Since I am having guests I have to have yummy snacks available!

I love seeing Granny Cobble's bed being used in your new home. When we were little we would put a blanket on the end of the bed as a saddle and pretend that the foot of the bed was our horse. She would be very proud of you both. I can't wait to have my turn sleeping in the new guest room.
