Happy birthday...

...to my dear husband and pretty Mattie-HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I can't wait to celebrate this one and many more with you. Come on now ladies...look at those baby blues, is he not hunky or what? I love you babe and happy, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Flood Gates...

...so Matt and I have been working on making our little half bath into a full since the beginning of February. We are so close to being finished, it's not even funny! So this past Saturday, Matt puts on the showerhead and knob and we're good to go!!! He tests out the shower head and everything works upstairs. Here are a couple of pictures of the finished product:

Then Sunday, I go downstairs to put the dogs away and notice that the gloves I'd set on the washer were soaked. I yell up at Matt and we both scratch our head. Then we decide to test the new shower again and the flood gates open pouring into our basement. The guy who did the plumbing came up and fixed it today but now this is what our OTHER bathroom looks like:

I'll be glad when all this remodeling is done but yah for a brand new shower that's ready to use!!!

Matt's Shrimp...

...I am definately not a shrimp fan but my dear husband LOVES it! We always call each other over lunch to see how the other's day is going. Last Thursday, I called Mattie at work and he was NOT having a good day to say the least. I happened to run across a recipe for shrimp and feta cheese pasta and being the good wife that I am, I decided I would make it for Matt to help cheer up his day! It turned out FAB!!! He loved it and the recipe made so much that he even had leftovers! It put a smile on his face for the end of his bad day...I promised Matt on the day of our wedding that I would do everything I could to be the best wife possible so I hope I'm holding up my end of the bargain!

Our garden...

...a couple of Sundays ago, Matt and I planted our gigantic garden. It has brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, spinach and lettace!!! I know, we're very adventurous! While we were working in the yard, Shadow became a chainsaw chewing up sticks for me!!! Then we worked in the front yard so we put the dogs in the back of the truck. Here's also a picture of Shadow guarding the garden and Emma watching us from OUTSIDE the garden! I hope it grows!

Birthday gifts...

...okay so Matt and I got TOTALLY spoiled for our birthdays this year!!! My mom filled our freezer, took us shopping, AND bought us a carpet cleaner. Then we had our birthday lunch at my dad's this past Sunday and we got a Wii!!! We're totally pumped about it! At lunch, my dad's wife was saying grace and it ended something like this, "...God, we don't mean to have hate in our hearts but for the lady that stole Alyssa's coat, please don't let her have fun while she's wearing it." It was funny! Here is a picture of Matt and I with our new Wii and the other picture is of Haley and I trying to take a picture with Bella while looking directly into the sun!

Jess's Wedding...

Matt held Baby G and he looked like a natural. OH! My five year old neice is staying a week with us this summer...that should be interesting! Here is a picture of the 'ole gang from CHS and Matt and Baby G!

My birthday coat story...

...so yesterday was my birthday-YAH! It was awesome despite the fact that some lady stole my coat! I think Matt was more upset about it than I was but oh well...I get a new coat so it was indirectly like a birthday present to myself! Here are a few pics from the night!

Getting older...

...today was a busy day! First off, let me tell you how much I HATE the spring forward thing...totally throws me off! So we got up this morning and since my husband didn't want to go to church (could have been due to the fact that I woke him up at 1am to tell him I was bored out of my gourd and wide awake...I'd already watched Rock of Love, read my book and even got out our wedding DVD), we started cleaning the house while we waited for his sister to come over. When she got here, we took all the dogs (one each) out to the park and luckily, we drove through the storm so it was gone by the time we got to the park and we weren't at home while it stormed! Then we went shopping...I got new earrings since I've been wearing an eraser on the back of my ear for the past week because I lost the back, I got a free pair of underwear from Vicki's Secret since my birthday is this Friday and I got the cutest pair of shorts so now it needs to warm up!!! Then we came home, did laundry, Matt put together his saw because I sealed the tile so now its ready for the baseboards to go back down. Then we went and visited with his mom and grabbed some dinner...not realizing it was almost SEVEN before we ate (that is SUPER late for us). Here is a picture of my new shorts and top I got to match. I sure hope this week goes by fast!!!

Bathroom Update...

...first off, this blog is driving me crazy! It just posts HTML for the pics which way throws me off! Anyways, the bathroom is oh so close yet so far away! Keep in mind that this bathroom started off with a vanity, toilet , carpet flooring and a closet and we (AKA Matt) are turning it into a vanity, toilet, tile and a SHOWER!!! We still have to do the following:
1. Finish grouting and sealing the floor.
2. Install spicket and handle in shower.
3. Install toilet.
4. Baseboards.

We may also add some shelves, we'll see what happens. I can't wait for this project to be DONE!

A Free Toothbrush...

...was all I wanted but I almost took home a kid at the dentist's office today!?! So I was waiting to be called back and there was another woman and a boy about 3-4 years old in the waiting area. She got called back and then 30 seconds later, I was called. Well, my hygenist said to the little boy, "Do you want a big or a little chair?" The kid said little (FYI-he was busy playing a video game so he wasn't really paying attention). So the lady picks up a little chair, I'm thinking she's just taking it back to the other lady's room but NO! She placed it in my room and I said, "Um...he's not with me." She started apologizing and said, "I didn't think you had a kid but I thought maybe you'd never mentioned him." I told her, "Wow! You must think I'm an awful parent because I wasn't even acknowledging this kid!" I called Matt and told him, he thought it was funny and I said, well, we don't have to worry about diapers, we can just go to the dentist and come home with a 3 year old!

All I wanted was my free toothbrush!!!
