What a day! Whew...

Yesterday, what can I was a LONG day and a busy day at that. I got up first thing and got ready and dropped B off at school and I headed to Dothan. I had to go register for school :( I so did NOT want to be doing that. Anyway, once I got to school..everything started off wrong, of course I don't have patience for stuff like that. Especially when its something that I really don't want to be doing. The highlight of the morning, was seeing my advisor! (Aunt Sam will understand) :))haha. I finally left school around 11 something. Then I made a visit to see April at work. I then attempted to go to sherwin williams to pick out a stain for the cabinets for the house.... Unaccomplished I might add, I am still very overwhelmed! I went a couple of weeks ago to pick up some samples of the colors we wanted for the house and while I was waiting for the samples, I looked at the different colors of stains, well..... I think I stood there for 10 minutes LOST OUT OF MY MIND!!!!! I have absolutley no idea of what I want. So, now I have the stain samples with me at home...and I am still undecided...and I have to give my contractor a color TODAY! OMG! I know, I have no idea what to do. The guys got finished yesterday afternoon doing the sheetrock for the house and the electric guys are out there now hooking up power! WooHoo! :) Of course the windows didn't come in yesterday like they were supposed too, supposed to be here tomorrow around lunch we will see! Highlight of the afternoon was somebody called about the trailor, they sounded very interested in it. Maybe something good will come about that. :) A little off subject, but I've been "rug" shopping for the house online and at some stores in Destin, did you know rugs are ridiculously expensive??? Its crazy how much rugs cost... with that said...I have yet to purchase a area rug for any room of the house! I don't have any pictures for this blog, I actuall probably do...but I'm to lazy to go find my cord to upload them :) Happy Thursday to everyone!!!!

House Ideas

I thought I would do a post of ideas and things we have for the house!

This is the granite that Tad and I picked out for the kitchen and the fireplace. Its called Hurricane Gold...

These are the lights that will hang over the kitchen island and over the kitchen sink. 2 will be over island and 1 over sink. They will hang down, so it'll be like the second light!

These are a few pieces of tile that we've been looking at for the bathrooms and laundry room...pretty much all have the same color scheme...

This is the shower curtain for Brayden's bathroom

This is the china cabinet that I have picked out, and our contractor is building us one just like it :) My grandmother's china is going to look awesome in it!

This is our frig.

My stainless steel farmhouse sink for the kitchen! my favorite part of the house :)

Pictures of the house from this afternoon, they started of the sheetrock today :)

The rest of the windows are supposed to be in tomorrow! Say a prayer that they will.

Family Beach Trip 2012

We had our annual Family Beach Trip a couple weeks ago. We normally stay in Destin on the beach, but everything was pretty much booked up. We stayed in SeaCrest between Destin and PCB. It was soooo nice! Very quite and relaxing...not alot of people on the beach but we did catch a wedding at the end of the week :) It was about a 30 minute drive into Destin, which I only made 2 trips there anyway. PCB was much more closer, maybe took 5-10 minutes to get there. I love PCB, I miss our annual PCB trip we used to take everyear before I graduated high school. Anyhow, we had a great time of course, although it does get crazy with 6 families under 1 roof for a whole week. Seaweed was awful :( Sunday we went to St. Andrews Park and seaweed was awful there too. Brayden of course didn't mind and loved diving into the water.

Aunt Sam and I sent all the kiddos with Uncle Wayne and Tadpole at the Commons! :) We took the picture and ran!!HAHAHA
Momma and Uncle Rusty found this during their dive on Sunday at St. Andrew's. They saved it because it was empty and so neat looking. It was really cool in person, well until the crab started to come out!!!! Nope...not empty! I had it on my leg and it started moving around...scared me to death!!! Not cooL!

 Eli rode with us into Destin on that Tuesday. He was watching Open Season 2 and was cracking me up how into the movie he was. I just had to have a picture of him all into it!
 This station wagon was at the outlets when we got there... I immediatly took a picture and sent it to my daddy. We used to always make fun of paneling cars... This one is def. in the top of my list with the blue painters tape! :) bahahaha

 Thursday night, Brayden started running fever :( It was a rough night for us. Friday, no fever that morning so we tried to go out on the beach and he didn't even want to play.. He sat in his chair for a little bit that got in my lap with his towel over him... Made this mommy sad!!! You can tell in this picture that he doesn't feel good at all.

We had a great vacation, but its always nice to come home! We missed our "new" house all week and were very anxious to see it the Saturday we came home.

Happy Birthday to my Aunt Sam! I love you and hope your day has been absolutley wonderful. Hope you enjoyed your sushi tonight :)
