Baby Steps

We have the Internet!!!
we have waited for the installation date forever. I have missed blogging. Were back and ready to blog it up. You'd think all this time we'd been able to do more than we have...but...we haven't. But were getting there...Baby Steps.

Yes I work...believe it or not I do! I pulled down all the ugly blinds that were left behind and painted all the window sills. They are ready for rods and panels. So exciting.

The floors are so close to being done. Romney tackled the family room and with 2 feet left.... ran out of glue...so frustrating. So it got finished the next day. Now all that is left is the bathroom. Making progress!!!


We have put up the chair rail in one of the bedrooms. Romney did a great job. We still need to scrape the wood puddy off and re paint, but its almost done!!!

I am impressed! Your house is looking great! We bought a fixer-upper too, and still have so much to do. I don't know if we will ever be done:)

Wow, you guys should do this for a living! What a beautiful job you've done!! I can't wait to go out there and visit this masterpiece. ps-you're lookin' HOT with that nail gun!

Love the hair! Can't wait to see it in person. Still trying to decide if I should go dark too . . . or just darker? I don't know.

So I just read this to Scott and we felt your pain of not being able to finish the floor . . . why do projects always seem to have little hang ups?? It looks great though. You know, if you wanted to move to AZ, you could probably make a killing on your new and much improved house!!!

Hi friend, I just love your house and it's so fun to see the progress.
If you guys are feeling crazy, we're having another celebrity party (feb. 16). If you want to join us, send me your email and i will give you details. It is a whole new group this time... so you could pull off your old outfits and then on your jacket write: "RIP". Sorry, was that disrespectful?

Ty & Emily said...

Hey Erin...I still haven't had the baby. My due date is today too!! I have been having contractions here and there but nothing much, hopefully the next few days she will be here. I am totally ready. How is your house coming along?
