Mother's Day weekend was really wonderful. A quick summary: I got to go out by myself, with no children, for several hours, wandering to and fro, doing whatever I pleased. Which ended up being a trip to the outdoor mall, with a stop at the coffee shop and into the bookstore, and a fast trip to Target to get diapers for my son and a video game for my husband. I did get myself some new shirts, so that was nice (That was part of the orders: spend some money on myself. Oh, darn it.) Sunday, we ventured to Cville and surprised both of our mothers. It was really nice to just be with family and it was exactly what I wanted. Jordan had a day planned just for us, but we're doing that next Sunday.
(Here's me, with my Mom! :) )
Guess what else my amazing husband had planned?

I had been telling him about all these things I was going to sell on Craigslist, clothes to Plato's closet, etc. And he tells me to gather all the $$ I can because we're going to remodel our master bath! Heck yeah!!! In case you forgot:

It looks like that. Really. I couldn't tell you the last time I opened the door. We do absolutely nothing in there, because it's disgusting. And cleaning it just won't do. In case the details are slipping past you, that's shag carpet, with avacado green appliances, with a once-clear door so covered in soap scum and who knows what else that you can't even begin to see through it. I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. So- we will replace the flooring, sink, countertop, shower, and paint. And then we will officially have 2.5 working baths, and only an entry way left to be redone on our house. After a year and three months, we're getting there. Praise the Lord!

And lastly, who keeps waking my children up in the middle of the night? Or at 6 a.m.? And who's lulling Corban back to sleep at 10 a.m. for his nap? I just want you to know that I am not okay with it, and I would greatly appreciate it if you would stop. Thank you very much.


  1. Well, it's certainly NOT me doing those things because whoever is doing that to your kids is also coming over to my house at 11:30 pm, 1:30 am, and 3:30 am and doing the SAME thing to Elijah. Whoever they are, I sencerely wish they would KNOCK IT OFF! thank you very much.

    Also, how ever exciting for you getting to redo your bathroom!! I wish we could do that too, but our downstairs bath is SOOOOOOOO small the we can't remodel w/out moving the wall... which is not in the budget right now. So, maybe one day. It's kind of low on the list - behind shoring up the foundation, replacing 10 windows, putting in cabinets and countertops in the kitchen, and escavating the yard. [sigh] the joys of owning an old home. :)

  2. Happy Mother's Day! You seemed to have had a wonderful weekend!

    As far as who is waking your kiddos up during the night and at 6am.. it might be MY kids. Really, don't they know it's unacceptable!?!? ;o)

  3. your family picture is so cute. And yay for a new bathroom!

  4. THOUGHT I might catch a glimpse of Corban's haircut - instead I see a picture of my mug! :) I like it though - and the 4 of you - I must say I took quite a nice shot..... The subject matters helped quite a bit though.... Twas close to a perfect weekend for me.... (minus your older brother and his wife)(and Grandma and Pap of course).... Love you tons.... Mom

  5. What was the video game? :)

    I'm definitely a bit jealous that you guys all got to see each other. Hopefully we'll be back in Indiana soon enough!
