* sweet success *

Yaaaaa The girls did it!!!
They had the best... {lemonade + bake sale} in all of Encinitas! lol  Everything turned out just perfect...


Prices were set!
All pink lemonade drinks were handed out with adorable straws!
 
Not gonna lie... They had fresh & store bought goodies!
 
But, The true hit of the day besides my husbands adorable lemonade stand he built... Were these mini donuts. They were packed with a punch, but in a bite size!
Perfect for the delicate eater!
 
 {recipe}
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 tbsp cooking oil
 
{Stir dry ingredients together. Add egg, vanilla and milk and beat 1 minute with an electric mixer or vigorously by hand. Add oil and continue to beat 1 minute.}
 
{The instruction manual suggests oiling the donut maker before using and also spraying with cooking spray. In other words, oil this sucker up good.}
 
 
Now that we've had this SALE with all the cousins. No joke, the kids are planning their next sale. I know we need to get a little more organized {simple}. Too many choices... Plus, the kids made more money than I did {wink}. Ahhhhh what we do for our children. Watch out people I'll let you know when the next sale is!!!

before & after master bath {interior design}


Remember this post... Well, this beauty was fully gutted! Say good bye to the 80's!

 
I know you all loved the original tile and overall look! Some tears were shed over on this job site! Sorry!  


Taking down all the walls and gutting everything was so much fun and exciting! Finally seeing the potential of the space was amazing... This room was huge!

All of my selections were perfect for the overall look. My client wanted the 3 C's... calm, classic and coastal. I think that was achieved... This bathroom will last for a very long time. Timeless!  

I designed this vanity so it had dimension. I love how it turned out in the space. I selected 2 old matching mirrors to fit over each sink. The old world touch added a little texture to the room. Perfect!  

Of course what room wouldn't be complete without rustic rooster's classic Blue and White pottery. A coastal classic in my book... {huge smile}


My client really only had one request besides the 3 C's... A claw foot tub. Well, her wish is my command! By adding a claw foot tub in the room we add more of an architectural dimension to the room. This bathroom appears long and lean so we need your eye to move around. We didn't want the room to be boring and flat... I like how all the little details really make a statement throughout.  We didn't leave anything unfinished. 

  I had so much fun creating the perfect master bath {the closet got a little TLC too!} for my clients... Enjoy!

a... for trying!



I really did try to paint this Lemonade stand today... Unfortunately 1.) I had to fire both of my kids from the job {getting sloppy & wild}, 2.) The wind started messing up my paper I place so nicely on the floor and 3.) I was freezing!  OK rain you had better come and go because by this weekend this stand had better be up and running... Taylor,  Ryan and their cousins will be selling fresh baked goods and ice cold lemonade! Get ready people... for one hell of a Lemonade Stand this Saturday! {wink}

and so we did it...

OK I'm not gonna lie... I was on cloud nine yesterday! My husband made my vision come true... The perfect Lemonade Stand! Yaaaa I think I'm more giddy than my kids are... As I said before I'm not a builder so I had to think extra hard and careful to make sure I designed it strong enough, safe enough and actually functional for my little ones.. And yes I got the perfect amount of wood. I did it! Yes!  


My husband Sean is the real hero here! He built it all for me... And was super patient and calm the entire time. Thank you Sean... The kids and I are super thrilled with it! Now we can't wait to paint it. Unfortunately, we couldn't paint it because the weather started getting chilly and windy on the coast. Not a good combination for painting. Don't worry I will show you all the painting progress and the finished product... Of our Fab-U-Lus Lemonade Stand!  

xoxo
