Piper

Why not throw something else into this crazy mix?  We looked high and low for a non shedding hypoallergenic puppy.  I had my list of puppies I would ONLY look at, and out of that, we got Piper.  She is an airedale terrier.  She’s about 9 months old now and she will be my demise I swear.  Yesterday she ate something that I loved, even though her own toy was closer to her.  I think she was secretly brought into this family to suck all our money and eat all our valuables.  You want to torture someone, give them a puppy!  Well, here she is, our little bitch…

technical difficulties

Well, this is an important reminder to save everything that you create.  The company that hosted our blog shut down, without previous warning and took with them all my posts from about 6 months.  Bill reuploaded what he could, but there is so much I have lost.  So the moral of this sad story is SAVE EVERYTHING SOMEWHERE…

Bailey’s 12th Family Birthday Party

We had an awesome evening birthday party for Bailey last night. He got a ton of great gifts! We have a VERY generous family, but I think his favorite gift was his new iphone from us. We figured he was going into middle school this year and because we couldn’t find a phone without a data plan, we may as well stick to what we know, so an iphone it was. And here is his reaction.

Our cruise is booked!

WE are sooooooooo excited for next summer to roll around as we are heading to EUROPE! Yeah!!!!!!!!!! We are spending a few days in Paris and then jumping aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise in Barcelona and spending 8 days on there. Super excited! I have been to western Europe a lifetime ago and the rest of the fam has not. The kids are most excited about the boat. We rationalized a cruise since we will have a traveling hotel take us to all the major hotspots that we want to travel to. Take a look at the Allure of the Seas. It’s gigantic!

I guess 18 floors, an ice rink, rock walls, zip lines, a diving show and so much more really is exciting. Will we ever get the kids off the boat????

Finished Bedroom

We are mostly finished with the bedroom.  I do have to add a possible desk and work on getting the closet together, but the painting and the furniture are DONE!  Yeah!

We totally loved the hexagon shelves, we found on pinterest and painted them the exact same colors.  They were PERFECT!  We are pleased with the way it turned out.

Yep, He’s awesome!

So while on our vacation to NC, we saw an awesome table at Bill’s Dad’s house and I knew I just had to have it. Bill found the plans online and he got started. He used the plans here and then modified them to make a lower shelf. I LOVE IT!

So we started with this…
