home improvement 101

We are in full home improvement mode, starting with cleaning out of every room, declutter and got rid of all the stuff we had accumulated over the years, had a HUGE yard sale a couple weekends ago, made enough money to buy the wood flooring for the kids bedrooms....

next we moved on to Mia's room, where we scraped the popcorn ceilings, painted the walls, laid wood floors, and then put it all back together again... the result is a very cute room and a very happy little girl!

next up is the beach, next week we are leaving for vacation!!! YAY! can't wait, i would leave today if possible. we have a whole lot of nothing planned, just playing in the sand, building sand castles, jumping waves, chasing crabs, looking for shells, good books, picnics and lots of sunscreen! our goal is TOTAL relaxation and take it easy kind of vacation, NO running all over creation, just us, just the biggest sandbox ever and hopefully warm weather, sunshine and nice breezes!

when we get back we get to start on Luc's room, we are not painting this time, just ceilings and floors, and putting up chair rail and crown moulding in his room. Papa is building a new bunk bed, with a desk on the underside, and luc is really excited about that.

summer is flying by, and i can't believe this year is 1/2 over. We are gonna be celebrating Chelsea's birthday on the beach, with a special gift from mom and dad to commemmorate her 13th year and the beginning of teen and grown-upness she is quickly approaching.

other than home improvement, our jobs are both going well, Tom is keeping busy building websites on the side, and i am keeping busy well keeping busy.. haha
so sorry for the boring play by play of our life, but really we have not had any thing too interesting going on, except home makeovers... which we are just beginning, and will post pix as we progress!
hope y'all are having a great summer with lots of popsicles, lightening bugs and pool time!
