THE NEW HOUSE!!!

Well things have still been super-dooper busy and stressful for me.
We had some major house selling drama the past few weeks. Had to cuss out the
the land owner, cry quite a few tears, and slam down a couple of coronas.
But its beginning to look like everything may work out in the end. I’m hoping that
we close on the old house next week.

As far as the new house goes…..ITS ALMOST DONE!!!!

WHOOOOO-HAAAAAA!!!!

The builder told us that the closing day is scheduled for the 28th of this month. Michael
doesn’t think it will be done by then, but if its another week after that, I’m fine with that.
I finally got around to taking some pictures of the progress. Now keep in mind that the
picture quality is not that great. I was on the phone while taking them, the battery was
dying on me, and quite frankly I was in a rush to go get the kids.

Be prepared, there are 44 pictures I took 

Our guest bedroom (this is where you’ll be staying simone). Of course you’ll have to step over all the toys b/c I am turning this room into a play room for the kids. But don’t fret, they’ll be a something to sleep on.

Of course Michael wanted a separate lil room for him to poo in. I guess he doesn’t like it when I go in there while he’s in the bathroom to fix my hair.

The bench and tile that is in the standup shower. Since my battery was dying I didn’t get a shot of our jaccuzzi tub in the master bath.

And what you all have been waiting for…..the craft room. I soooo cannot wait to get in this room. The organizing ideas are flowing, all the crafty goodness that I plan on creating is floating in my head. Aside from the kitchen, this of course is the room that I am most excited about.

The floor in my craft room. And before ya’ll think I’m crazy, that’s not real wood. I picked linoleum for all those messes I plan on making.

The “e” I made out of a piece of wire that was laying on the front porch….gotta mark my territory. I told Michael to leave it there when he was doing some touch up painting over the weekend. Here’s hoping the builders or crew don’t mess with it.

The back porch.

So that’s your tour. Of course since the battery ran out on my camera I didn’t get a chance to snap pictures of the backyard, the garage, etc.

I’ll post those later.
