it's the little things


I am so excited about the new faucet in the kids bathroom.

I know you guys are cracking up laughing...thinking I have clearly lost my mind. That is partially true.  But I am really easy to please...and this faucet makes me so happy!!



This silly faucet the home builders put in is blah.  And so hard to keep clean.  Icky gunk gathers underneath the globe handles and makes them look dirty.


No matter how many times I clean them, they still look nasty.


We went to Home Depot and picked out another one.  It isn't really fancy or anything, but I LOVE it!  I am the happiest mom on the planet.  I really is the little things that make me happy :)


Thank you plumber Gary for installing the new faucet!  I'm sure you are thrilled you don't have to hear me complaining about the old one any longer.

It is amazing what something as little as a faucet can do for a bathroom! The new one looks great...I can totally see where that old one would be a major pain to clean!

I'm the same way. I just love when we replace something like that.

Now to replace all the flooring in my house!

If we weren't just renting this house I might be tempted to go out and do the same. We have basically the same as your old fixtures and they do get so grimy.

I don't think you've lost your mind. Don't get me wrong I love the big stuff but I get excited over the little stuff too. You should've seen how giddy I was when I opened a box of $25 shoes!!!

We have the same bathroom fixtures that I soooooooooo hate and can't wait to change them. I'm hoping soon! I don't need fancy and extravagant but clean and updated. I was thrilled when we hung new light fixture in our kitchen this past spring....what a difference.

Honey, you're talking to someone that gets excited over new Swiffer dusters and having a trashbag waiting on me beneath the old one! It is about the small things! Nice faucet too!

P.S. A bit late, but I'm loving you new (I think) pic for blogger. Is your hair color different? I love it regardless! Sorry if you posted about this, I'm a bit behind in my readings!

Hugs!

I know that exact feeling! We replaced our kitchen faucet and sink and faucets in both our bathrooms a couple years ago and it was like Christmas!
