Here I go again on my own…

Standard

Man, I love 80’s music.

Anyway, I’ve been debating for a few weeks about whether to just shut down this blog or attempt to keep it going. Honestly, I really love to blog. It makes me feel like I actually have a brain and I feel like people (my mom) enjoy reading it. So, I have decided to keep blogging, but I’m not going to stress out about my frequency of posts. There will be times when I have a lot of posts and times when I don’t have as much to say. That’s called having a crazy 15 month old.

So, what is new?

-Our house renovations are mostly done. I posted pictures on Facebook.

-Mason has started a Mother’s Day Out program on Tuesdays. It’s the best money I’ve ever spent. 🙂 I get a few hours to run errands and go to yoga. That’s code for, “get a mani/pedi”.

-Speaking of Mason, he is wild. I’m not sure I’ve ever been more happy and exhausted in my life. Pure. exhaustion.  BUT also extreme happiness.

-I also just fixed my Keurig machine. It has been broken since Brent and I moved. This has been a source of great sadness for us. It’s fixed now, though. I’m a genius. Make sure you tell Brent.

-Mason slept from 4pm yesterday until 6:45am today. Needless to say, there is no nap in our foreseeable future.

-I feel like I need to say something that is new with Brent, but I don’t have anything to tell you. He’s always working and he really isn’t that exciting. 🙂

 

Until next time…

The calm before the storm.

Just stopping in to share some “before” picture of the house. Keep in mind that I put no thought into these pictures and they really aren’t that great. 🙂

This is the living room

Mason's Room

Part of the bathroom. I was sure I took a picture of the clawfoot tub, but I can't find it.

Looking into the master

 

The kitchen after we took everything out. ("we" does not include "me")

 

That’s really all that I took. They aren’t great, but the kitchen and the mudroom are the major projects so that’s where we will see the most change.

Should have taken a picture of the hole in my house.

 

Wish us luck!

My garbage disposal

This little boy is going to eat me out of house and home.

After hardly eating anything for the past couple of weeks, someone has found his appetite. Today was more of one continuous meal than 3 distinct ones.

It sort of reminds of me this little guy…

I tried to find the picture of him with the pb&j in one hand and his drink in the other. That’s probably my favorite picture ever.

Oh, that is my little brother for those of you that don’t know.

Also, I think they look exactly alike minus the hair color.

…and the awesome outfit Daniel has on.

Anyway, the house is shaping up. And by that I mean, it has a giant hole in the back where we tore all of the wood off. So, if any homeless people in Nashville need a place to stay for the night, just walk on in.

I should mention that we are not staying in the house yet. Mason would just crawl right out of the back and we would lose him.

Brent and I have only thought about divorce 4 times while we have been working on the house.

…it’s been 1 day.

I am kidding, of course.
