So, remember when?

Remember when we did some remodeling on our kitchen a few years ago? (Go here if you need a memory refresher) Remember how I was like 37 weeks pregnant and really did warn Jason of the next project I might want to pick up a.k.a. Jason will end up doing- if we have another baby? Well, here you have it:

major home project #2: the before

and, the after:

the beginnings of baby #2:

Javen was even kind enough to help daddy pound out the tile. I think he spent more time helping than I did.

This really was just a coincidence of timing, but still funny to think about. And in my defense I did try to help lay the tile until my perfectionist husband was afraid I would make it uneven. Which I'm sure I would've so instead of helping I was usually passed out asleep napping somewhere. Although, I did help a lot with the painting. Overall, I think it turned out pretty awesome. There definitely could be more done to it but I'm just happy not to be stepping on carpet when I get out of the shower!

No, we have not been washed away or blown away!

I have had a lot of people asking if we are okay from the flooding. Thankfully we are not in a flood zone so yes. Although with all the crazy weather I'll feel lucky if we make it out alive by August. Okay, maybe that's a little dramatic but really between all the tornado sirens I've heard lately and the flooding I've definitely had my share of nightmares. I HATE tornadoes. There, I said it. Now I feel much better. But, thank you for the phone calls and messages. Really, it means a lot.
So with that being said I feel I need to explain why it's been two months since I've put anything on here, but there really isn't an explanation. Since Jason's boards have been over (which I have to mention we just found out he PASSED!! Hallelujah. I'm so proud of him!) he's been able to be around a lot so I've mostly just been enjoying all my time with these two awesome people.
Colette and Heather (my step-mom and sis) came out last week and it was so good to see them! Heather was awesome enough to travel with her little Zak to give Javen a friend while they stayed and they were pretty dang cute together. Enjoy some of the flooding photos!

I had to throw this one in: Man capris??? Did I miss something?
