A Van?

After we got our van last year alot of people asked "Why did you buy that?"

My reply "To fill it with children."

Black baby #2 due October 3rd.

Laundry Room.

The reason I loved this house is because it was all one level and the laundry was right off the kitchen. Our kitchen is a pretty good size but it lacks in the storage department. As you can see there was alot of room in the laundry room.
Originally we were going to move the plumbing and put the washer and dryer be the water heater and build some storage cabinets where the plumbing was. We decided it didn't really matter so my sweet husband built some storage shelves for me.

Chandler has really become a model for the camera. Anytime I get it out he follows me around and says "CHEESE!"

Awesome shelving, thanks Black Brothers Shelving!

I decided to paint the east brick wall green to keep a good flow from the kitchen to laundry. I love this green, it looks a little bright in these pictures but it really is not that bright.

I do like how it has turned out, even though I hate laundry, plus I love the green.

The left wall is part of the kitchen so just a little teaser until everything is done. It won't be for a while since now all I need to do is sew a few things, and since my sewing skills are pretty much non-existent it might be a while until the kitchen is reveled.
Hope you enjoy.

Rudee and Tasha's Wedding.

This weekend our friends Rudee and Tasha were married. It was such a beautiful wedding with all of the bright spring colors. The ceremony was performed by there Bishop and it was really nice. It was great to be able to be there to support them.
This is the cutting of the cake. I only was able to get this shot, but lets just say there was cake everywhere.

Rudee looking great!

Congrats again Mr. and Mrs. Boyd!

I love the DI!

I love the DI! We have always been able to find really good stuff there. Including this little beauty: Since the weather has been really nice weather David and I have been so excited to grill. The only problem was we didn't have a BBQ, this was a real problem considering all we have talked about the last little while is how yummy grilled chicken, hamburger, kabobs, steak, and every wonderful food you can grill sounds for dinner. So today before going to watch the Bountiful Blacks we stopped at the Centerville DI (we were originally looking for a phone). Needless to say we say this little beauty and the price was right (15 bucks), loaded her up in the van and had the best grilled chicken ever for dinner.
I love the DI!

Finally some exciting stuff.

Okay so this post has taken way too long to do, have I really forgotten how to blog? Anyway, We are loving our new home! We are pretty sure we will have projects for years to come but David and I both say "BRING IT!" Over the next little while I will post some before and after shots of our projects, we hope you all enjoy.
The Bathroom.
This little space didn't need much work but what we did do made a huge difference. We painted (thank you kaye), added beadboard, installed all new plumbing thanks to our Dads, hung a nice shower curtain to hide the "original" bathtub.


I love this little bathroom and the color of paint I stole from Emily. We hung an extra storage cabinet above the toilet but we have yet to decided what to store in it. It has glass doors so it will have to be well organized storage so if you have any ideas let me know.
