Read Me: I am filled with awesome. *Picture Heavy*

It is SO hard to blog after being at the house every weekend and night till 10pm. Here are a few weeks combined... kind of a timeline of events if you will.

Sanding and taping of the sunroom windows was one sunny and cold weekend of work for mom and I.

Some of the light fixtures went in which made it really start looking like something :)

Our first blooms of spring... So excited that I can see this out my back window. Pretty pretty!

We had tons of nights like these. They are now, for the most part behind us since it's staying lighter outside. 

Mom and I had a little assembly line going for priming ALL the casing/baseboard/crown molding in the house.

Sometimes mom got stuck in between and did the limbo a time or two...

Then the doors came, I fell in love and haven't stopped staring at them since.

Warning: Hide yo kids, hide yo wife...

The hard working hubby trimming out my little kitchen/living window :)

In action shots are the best...

♫ ♩ ♬So we put our hands up like the ceiling cant hold ussssss! ♫ ♩ ♬
Sunroom ceiling is looking good! 

We took the hardwood from the garage, put it into the truck, then into the master bedroom window... this was a job. 

Tyler telling Bill to stop and not ram the house we just built ;)

I thought at this point you might want to see something besides the house. So here is one pretty way to get to the house. 

Ok , now back to the house stuff...This is where I started to get heavily involved. Yes, I've made all the decisions on interior but the guys needed us to spackle and sand holes. Man, I HATE both now. But I like the power tools. Fresh pedicure + power tools= a fun friday night.

Bench seating progress. I just love this little corner :)

Then the bookcases came! Yes! 

Oh man... can't wait to fill those shelves and stuff my face  eat healthy in front of the TV!

Speaking of  the TV...  Here, Tyler is measuring to make sure ours will fit. It's a tight squeeze but it should all work out.

Right and left bookcases with the doors... waiting on the shelves to be painted.

Such a poser ;)

Paint wars break!

We are pretty excited if you can't tell!

But had to put our game faces on and get serious. It's time to light a fire and get this place done!

Back to work we go!

Did I mention that the Master bedroom is painted?? Color is Olivewood by Glidden- Color matched at Lowes for Olympic paint.

So those were the before floor pictures...
We put felt paper down and got to town on the hardwood!

All the hardwood got laid out to mix up colors and pieces. 

My daddy working hard! 

A few hours later and it was finished!

We continued with fixing one more thing under the house. Poor Tyler thought he was done with all that non sense...

and finally... this is where we are as of today! Kitchen color is Woodlawn Snow by Glidden color matched at Lowes for Olympic paint. We will have those ugly primary speckled color tiles covered by wednesday and then maybe by the weekend we will have kitchen cabinets!! 

As always, thanks for reading!
