It'll be so much fun!

Monday, February 23, 2009

Oooh boy, I'm exhausted from this weekend and I barely did a thing!

First of all, thank you for the concern and prayers regarding our Roto Rooter fun. It turns out that he was kept under 100 feet and I'm a bit numbers dyslexic {truly}, as Tony told me $248 and I heard $284 . . . We're not exactly pleased with Mr. RR though as the guy they sent out didn't complete the job thoroughly, so we basically can expect to call them out again. Tony will be calling today.

Saturday we had a crew of friends over to help with demo-ing the nursery. Yes, that amazingly aggravating husband of mine got his way and added a few weeks and hopefully only a few hundred dollars onto our house projects.


Completely necessary barrier.

Because blown-in insulation sucks!


My lovely menfolk that I seem to abuse to frequently, only repaying through food and alcohol.


Aaron taking a well deserved break to read up on the 1941 Beauties of St. Olaf {I'm not joking}

My worst food picture yet . . . recipe to come Country Style Boneless Slow Cooker Ribs



The bathroom, when standing in the nursery.

The nursery.

Sconces, mirror and picture frames!

Wow, we accomplished a lot, but again it wouldn't have happened without Aaron, Steve and Eric. We're very blessed to have the willing helpful friends that we do. They always rise to the crazy challenges we put them up to.
Yet to come our maternity sneak peak and my 30 week post.

Yay, for some nursery progress!! I'm only 20 weeks and starting to freak out about not having little man's nursery started, so I give HUGE props for seeming so calm.

I look forward to your 30 week post!! You're probabley cute as always!

Can't wait to see it when it's all done! It's great that you have friends that help out like that.

In your last picture -- I have the same sconces -- got them last year at Target!

That's great progress in your house! How fantastic.

My brother has been working at our house as well and I pay him with food and beverage...too funny!
