the storm before the calm (I hope)

Look at my cute helper! Zack wanted to help me pack. I should dust more often. I'm exhasted! But look how much we got done today! (first picture is this morning, last picture was 5 minutes ago) My mom is my hero. I asked her to come help me pick up a section of the cabinets that my dad wanted, and she didn't leave till after 10 last night, then came back this afternoon. I am so grateful for everyone's help. Ashley, thanks for dinner tonight it was fabulous! I need to come raid your recipe book. Even a big thanks to Staci, who tried to watch my kids twice last week, but because of my flakiness it didn't work out. (I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to play with my sis!) But I am deep in it this week. I'm sooo excited that it is truely on the horizon! And my sweet husband conceded on paint color. So I won't give it away yet, but I'm excited! Well I better go scrape paint. Tomorrow is sanding and taping day. Lots to do!

I am lovin' the picture at the top of your blog with the boys laying down...that is my favorite picture of them EVER!!! I love it. I am so excited to see your house redone! It will look awesome! I'm sorry we're not living down there for times like these when we could watch boys or help out with projects. Maybe someday we'll all live close!

It IS the calm before the me, I promise. My house looked like a BOMB had gone off and on several occasions I would think, "Really? Is this EVER going to look put together?? Is it even worth it??" but it does and it is! And you will be so happy when you're finished.

email me at and I'll add you to my blog:)
