~* a swap out *~

I have had this shelf since the '80s. Remember when wicker what big? (Ignore the wall behind the shelf, we pulled the paneling off the wall and it had black glue on it, now we have to take the walls down and replace them)
But I was over it!!!! So over it. It was the last little bit of wicker I had left. So I used the last of my Amazon points and purchased a new shelf for the bathroom. It arrived the other day and I hung it right away. Now I love it.
I am sure I will love it even more when we finish the walls behind it. But for now, I just love the shelf. What a difference it makes! And I love that I have a little drawer to hide some essentials!
Have a great day!

~*love a knock off *~

I love these drinks at Taco Bell. I haven't been able to put my finger on how they were made, so tonight I searched them out. They sound so easy and so much cheaper to make yourself, huh? I am going to keep these ingredients around!!!

You’ll Need:
Sierra Mist, Sprite, or 7UP. We recommend Sierra Mist, because that’s what they have at TB.
Frozen Limeade concentrate, thawed. If you want the Cherry Limeade, use a frozen Cherry Limeade concentrate.
Ice
Limes
Fill a cup with ice. The ice is what keeps the limeade at the bottom of the cup and produces the Taco Bell look. (If it’s cold, but doesn’t have ice, you won’t quite get the same thing!)
Put 2 to 4 ounces of your choice limeade concentrate in the bottom of the glass, depending on how strong you want the lime flavor, and how big your glass is.
Fill to top with Sierra Mist. Slice lime into quarters. Place in top of glass for garnish or squeeze juice into drink. Serve and enjoy!

Have a great day!

~* a repair *~

This is my old faucet, it was new when we moved in, we installed it. However, after years of my son's abuse, it leaked. Badly. So bad, last Wednesday, during the worst storm of the year so far, I had a flood under my sink. And so off to the hardware store we went to get a new one. Luckily when I bought this faucet, I bought one with a lifetime warranty. But that was of no consolation for Dan during the storm. Especially when we got stuck in the snow in the parking lot!
However! I love the new kitchen faucet! So, I can't be all that upset with the fact that we had to replace it.
What do you think?
I really like the new one so much, I think we need to replace the one in the bathrooms as well! Those were not new when we moved in, so they may go at any time, now!?
Have a great day!
