All About Aunt Haley

This is a little bit of a catch up post and a little bit of current stuff too! Haley has been my best friend since I was about 12. She is 4 years older than I am so when I was 12, she was 16 and had a car! She would take me around in her black Nissan Sentra. We would go to this one spot where there were railroad tracks on a little bit of an incline. Haley would floor it over the tracks and we would sail into the air! We have seen each other through the best and worst times of our lives so, naturally, when Madeline was born she came to visit. She came in March and spent the majority of her stay working on Madeline's room. She painted the stripes and all the animals and the tree! She is so talented! When she wasn't painting Madeline's room, she was helping Terry work on the deck or doing a family photo shoot for us. She is one of the most generous, selfless people I have ever met. Below is a little bit of her handiwork!

We also got to visit with an old friend we grew up with while she was here. Our friend, Stephanie lives in Abilene, which is a little over an hour from where we live. We haven't all seen each other in probably close to 10 years but it was just like old times! It was so nice to get to see Stephanie again!
I got inspired after Haley left to fix up Madeline's bathroom. I started painting it at the end of March and we literally just finished it this week. Madeline's room shares a Jack and Jill bathroom with the office and it was one room of the house we just hadn't touched since we moved in. Terry and I went back and forth about what to do in there and this is how it turned out.

*I do have to give credit to Terry for hand painting the flowers!*
