the garage a.k.a. Bruce's girlfriend

Bruce loves his girlfriend. He spends a lot of time with her. I don't think she's half-bad myself. From making custom shelving and a custom workbench to doing epoxy over the concrete...this garage is a happy one for sure :)

happy birthday to me :)

Yep. The big 31. Just for the record, turning 31 is more depressing than turning 30. So, for all of you young pups out there (my hubbie included) just keep that in mind :)

My birthday actually fell on a Sunday this year which was really nice and relaxing. My parents and mother-in-law (who are all in the same ward) go to church in the morning and we go in the afternoon. While we were still at church, they all came over to our house, cooked up homemade enchiladas and a beautiful salad & had it all ready and waiting when we got home. Yay and yummy!

We had cake, opened presents (I had lots of little helping hands!) & just spent time together. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect.

18 months big

Can my baby already be 18 months old?? Time flies when you're having fun! Ava is just the sweetest and funniest little angel. She has been our easiest, breeziest child. She is just happy and placid all the time....but don't get me wrong...she's got a sassy little personality for sure. We love this baby to pieces!!

new home = lots of projects, pt.1

For the no one left who reads this blog.... :)

Wow!!! Where have we been??!?!?! No, I'm not pregnant...I can't count how many people have asked me if that's the reason I have not blogged ;) We've just been VERY busy with this house.

So, the trouble with buying a "new construction" new home is that you're the suckers who have to install all of the "stuff". For example: the gas line for a gas grill, laying sod, the sprinkler system for the front and back yards, the landscaping, then ripping up half of the sod we laid for more landscaping & other basics. We enjoy doing projects.... but these were HUGE projects all at once. Whew! Glad it's over.... and I'm glad our marriage is still intact :) Nothing like huge projects to bring out your inner patience!

....more to come! Including updated finished product pics :)
