The Hartland: September 2012

Mr. Hart


Everyone always says that the engagement will fly by. It did. They say the wedding day and reception will be a blur. It probably will be. But one thing that I know will last forever is my soon to be husband. I can't say enough good things about my Mr. Hart. He is just the perfect guy for me and God plopped him right there in Astronomy class for me to gawk at till we got introduced. So glad I didn't change my schedule that second semester. SO. GLAD. I came across this text I saved and it just reminded me how lucky I am to be marrying my best friend. 

Um, ignore the fact we are talking about dinner at 10:53 am. That's just how we roll apparently... 

Anyway, my almost Hart heart is full tonight! Love you babe! :)

Big Changes! 3 weeks full of work!

I am WAY behind on house stuff so this will be a whole lot of pictures with a little bit of words so we can get it all in.

Here we go!

Tyler is always ready to work.
We've done a little shopping for the house..
Our master bedroom fan...

Outside happenings...

Let's take a moment to zoom in on my dads face... bahahahahaha!

Beginnings of our porch!
Inside changes...

The tub is gone!
New opening for the kitchen!!! 

Check out those added closets to your left :)

Tyler's hard work caught on camera

Some of the guys helping us out!

The ceilings have been ripped out and ready for "coffin" ceilings... not quite sure how I feel about that but it will open up the room. Oh and yes, that is a chair hanging down...

Light at the end of the tunnel?

Living/Guest Room Closets

Taking a break... they deserve it!


Chatting around the water cooler dumpster...

Then the brick came! 

Under the house


Now begins what has been the last week or so at the house...

Looks like a totally different house! 

I'm falling in love with our little Hart Home

You can totally see straight through the house
More Progress!

Brick Porch!!

Testing the fireplace to see what to do with it...

And then there was a dead bat in my bathroom... Mom did not like.

Sometime this week I will have another update. I feel like I'm running thin on EVERYTHING (but my body) so bear with me. 

Next time, pictures of new walls, the fireplace demo and front porch.

Keep on keeping on!

This is the quote of my life right now. All I can do is keep going and hope that the next 55 days go as smooth as possible.

This weekend my mom and I got SO much accomplished (and are still going). Some people may think we are nuts (ahem, dad!), but we enjoy this little thing called event design. So much that we hope to start a business together one day. Everything we are creating now is a foundation for that. So many possibilities for those that dont have time, don't like to deal with the details and can't envision their event, can come to us. We can totally see it... believe us!

Here is our list of things we completed-All CUSTOM:

- Table numbers
- Reserved signs for the church
- Reserved signs for the tables
- Name tags for bridal party
- Name tags for memory cabinet
- Coloring books
- Letter H for the ceremony (yay!)
- Gift sign
- Send off sign
- Favor sign
- Props (some--not all are our designs)
- Guest sign in
- Dessert labels
- Food labels

SHEW! And thats in 48 hrs. Goodness, what would I do without photoshop and an awesome creative mom (& a trusty printer)?!  You would think with all of that we would be close to done but we are working on the bridesmaids gifts later tonight... And with all of that, I leave you with a little sneak peek of two of the above...

My "H" and a prop! Jayda tested and approved!

That's all for wedding stuff now... House update soon!
