Our House!!!

Last month we bought a house!!!! But our house needed lots of work. In just 3 weeks the living room went from this... 
to this... 
to this...
 and finally to this!!!!!
We did  lots of work all over the house. There was yucky wood paneling all over, and ugly brown trim on the windows and closets. Over the last few weeks I have painted until I could no longer grip a brush, sanded drywall till my arms ached, swept and cleaned nooks and crannies till my knees bled. But that is nothing, my sweet hubby did ten times the work I did. He would get up early everyday to work on the house before classes, and he would stop late at night when he got off work to finish things up. He is the hardest worker I know, and I am so lucky to have him. And a big thanks to the friends that helped us with the big projects and helped us move, we couldn't have done it alone. 

We love our new house, although I think I will like it even more when we actually finish the bathroom, and when I finish unpacking everything. 

In other big news, Carson attended his last undergrad class today!! Now he just has to survive finals and then it's on to graduation next week!!!

9 Months!

This little cutie is nine months old. And when I say little, I do mean little! We went to the Dr. this week and Miss Kynlee hit the 1 percentile mark for weight. I guess someone has to be the smallest. I sure can attest to the fact that great things come in small packages.  She is such a sweet girl and her active curiosity keeps Mom on her toes.

It is the Little Things that Make Me HAPPY!

Yesterday was an epic day people!!! You want to know why??? Well I will tell you. I did 3 loads of laundry... wait for it... in my own washer and dryer!!!! Now this may not seem so monumental to some of you, but it was a first for me. I did not have to load my laundry into the car and take it to my Mom's or my sisters. I did not have to haul my laundry to a laundry room a mile away (because that is how far it feels when you are carrying laundry). When the clothes were not quite dry I did not have to put more quarters in the machine, or spread them all over my apt to finish drying, I just push the button, and like magic it starts again. Life is good!!

I do have to say though that some of the awesomeness wore off today when there was more laundry to be done because baby girl threw up on her sheets and blankets at 2 AM, but it is still awesome.

And on another note, in case you couldn't tell from the above ranting, we finally moved into our house!!!! More posts will come on that soon, and maybe even some pictures if our house ever stops looking like a construction zone.

Happy Wednesday!!! Go do some laundry.
