Aluminum Boat!

Martin's dad had an old boat that had a small hole in it.  Hubs & Martin had planned for quite some time to patch the hole and take it out into a creek near our house.  So they spent a night patching it up and were ready to take it out the very next day.  And that they did!  It was quite the site.  hahaha.

Spring Break!

Cleaning & Carpet!

So right after we ordered our new Bedroom Suite we got to work taking up our carpet in order to get it ready to be installed before we left to visit family over Spring Break.  We worked night and day taking up the carpet and then decided to go ahead and add the taller baseboards that we love in the bedrooms as well.  We figured this would be the easiest time to do it since all the furniture would be out of the way so we took full advantage.  It only meant more work for us.  And then as we began to work we figured out we probably needed to go ahead and finish installing the doors and painting the door frames...and on and on and on.  haha!  But we were committed!
Here are a few pictures of the process of tearing up carpet and installing the baseboards.

New Bedroom Suite!

Hubs and I made our first big kid purchase as far as furniture goes before Spring Break.  Most of our furniture is hand me down or antique and has been in our family for some time.  I love it that way but we were both very excited to update our bedroom look.  It was quite mis-matched and not in the good way.  ;)  Here we are at Ashley Furniture in front of our new purchase!  Now we just had to wait for it to come in...So now it was on to ripping up carpet so that our new bed could be delivered on top of our new carpet.  :) *More on this to come!
