Kitchen…

So the only room in the whole house that is done is the kitchen and I love it!!! It makes me so happy being in there. The green is great now that there are some decorations up and I love the color scheme with hints of orange and the white and black cabinets and appliances. I bought this awesome owl figurine that kev hates but I think its awesome I mean its pretty ugly but in an ugly amazing kind of way!! I bought some fake flowers and stones and greens and made alittle arrangement for the counter.

kev has always wanted these fake grass things
ooo p.s. I made these plates in the background too. I painted them on clear plates and then spray painted the backs white. There are 4… a bird, a chair, a tree and a chandelier.

just call me a hero to all…

ok well maybe not a hero to all but a hero to turtles everywhere. Yesterday I put aside my busy schedule to become a turtle saver!!! Haaha jk well not really I did save a turtle or like to think i did. We were on our way to a BBQ and there was a turtle in the middle of the road- we pulled over because there was no way the turtle was going to make it. It was a super busy road. I got out of the car had to wait while a handful of cars seriously almost hit the turtle and then ran into the road and picked it up and tried to find a better home for it across the street. We found this swamp area that was real green and leafy for him. It was a good day!

moving…

so moving stuff is like the worst thing ever. I hate moving. I do however love the dunkin donuts commerical about moving- it cracks me up and getting me thru moving as i sing it over and over. We packed a 17 ft u haul with stuff from my parents house and we dont even have any furniture. I didnt realize how much art crap I collect. haha I couldnt believe we filled that thing. We didnt leave my parents house till after 9 I think we got to pittsfield at like 11 and then still unloaded the untire truck so that my dad could drive back home. It was a crazy night and it took some maniuerving to get the king mattres up the stairs but they got it. We have been painting like crazy. We got the kitchen all done and the dining room. I will take pictures and post them soon. But we have stuff everywhere and we have a makeshift dining room table (card table) and couch (canada camp chair) for now. I cant wait till it feels more like home.

We are home owners and 2 years married all in the same day!!

So apologies for the no posting the last little while but here are a few updates! Last Monday June 16th was our 2 year wedding anniversary it was also the day that we closed on the house!! We couldnt think of a better way to celebrate our anniversary. The day went pretty smoothly- except for the fact that we showed up for the closing each thinking the other one had the down payment check. eek good thing we dont live far away. It was fun to get to meet the previous owners. After we closed we moved some of our stuff from apt. to house then got cleaned up and went out to our favorite restaurant Luau Hale. It was a great dinner followed by going home (haha HOME) to drink campange and watch wedding videos that we have never seen that casie took on her camera that day. It was awesome!!! She got us saying our vows and putting the rings on and our first kiss and cutting the cake. It was so awesome to be able to see it all again.


Cheers to 2 years and our new home!!!

last wednesday night was our school art show. It turned out pretty good. I was a complete crazy person for the 3 days before though and you did not want to be around from 3-5 before it started. It didnt help that i had to go on a field trip the day of the art show- which left me with no time to set up. All in all it turned out great- the kids work looked great all hung up and you could tell they were so proud when they saw it up there. Plus i bribed them all to come by giving them 2 extra points on their final grade. haha
