  1. You forgot one! “I want my bathroom renovation project to be completed soon and have it be a huge success.”

    I love your site and read it every morning with my coffee. And throughout the day when you update it. Thanks.

  2. Thank you for reading Belle & yes- that bathroom project – UGH!!! You are the coffee (strong & serious) of blogging and I am the beignet (light & fluffy & funny with sugar on your face)
