After dinner last night we headed to Lowe's. Dean and I (well maybe it was my idea) decided to let Andrew try his blueberry pomegranite iced tea. He LOVED it! However, he got a little wound up. Oops-- sorry Amanda!

Going crazy-- it was the tea!

Getting things started.
We worked from 8pm-3am!

Geno was in charge of Quality Control

Andrew came over today while we were starting the 2nd coat.
He and Geno wanted to help.

They decided to climb the stairs instead.

Cute babies and big helpers.


We are going to paint the kitchen green on Sunday.
Pictures to follow.

Sorry for the lack of updates. Things are going well at our house. I'm getting ready to get back into "work-mode" as much as I don't want to-- haha. I will be in a few different school districts to keep myself occupied and to support my Target addiction.

Mom and Anna came to visit last weekend. We recovered the rest of our kitchen chairs on Friday night. Dean went to work with his dad on Saturday while the three of us drove to Carlisle to shop! :) We met up with Dean for lunch at one of our favorite places-- Aki. It is a Japanese Hibatchi and Sushi bar. We hung out for a little while into the afternoon then the girls headed back to West Virginia. We all had a good time.

Today is little Andrew's 1st birthday! We are all going to Hoss's for dinner to celebrate. Amanda, Cheryl and I took him to Sears yesterday for his 1 year pictures. He is just tooooooo cute!

Andrew's big birthday party with friends and more family will be on Saturday.

I think Dean and I are going to paint the living room and/or kitchen this Sunday. I'm excited to paint and then post new pictures! The living room will be a tan and the kitchen a sage-type green. I'll be sure to keep you posted!

Home Sweet Home

Living room. Dean is begging for a bigger TV.

Dean's computer area with Geno's bed and toys
in the bottom left corner.

Geno loves sitting on this step and looking out the window.
He has been sooooo good here-- no accidents!

Looking into the dining room area.
Dean and I put up the blinds last night.

Love this room!! Don't mind the mess, I was cooking dinner :)

Looking towards the fridge and pantry in the corner.

Master bedroom

Don't know what to put in this little sitting room yet.
I have a cedar chest coming my way that I might
put under the window. Thoughts?

Master bath!
I love this tub!!!!

Glass shower

Guest bathroom.
Kinda girly-- love it.

There are also 2 bedrooms on the 3rd floor. One just has a full size bed in it (come visit us). The other has a table and a lot of my school supplies and randomness. I want to have a place where I can organize all of the wedding planning and be able to shut the door so it isn't seen by all!

I left out the bottom floor. There is a foyer with hardwood floors, a half-bath, and a huggggggge rec room. The laundry is also on this floor behind 2 doors in the rec room aka the man cave!

Here is the little man-- GENO!!

Still Alive

HHHIIIII!!! We are still alive!

Moving is going well. We are without internet and cable until tomorrow evening. Ugh. Geno and I have been watching a bunch of movies and moving/organizing things.

I'll post pictures when I can get online at our place!

D, B & G
