House decorating: Reece’s Room!

Let the decorating begin! :)

I’m pretty much done with Reece’s room. For me, that was the easiest room in the house. She’s at an easy age to decorate for and girly things are not hard to find! I already mentioned that her room was done in owls and we finished her mural last night so now I can post pics! When I bought her bedding at Target they had these sticky wall decals that matched the bedding. I usually don’t go for that sort of thing but the owls were just too cute to pass up…so I bought it.

Here’s what we started with…DSC_0595 And a fresh out of the tub princess to help…DSC_0596 Hubs did most of it on his own..go figure.DSC_0600

I still have little things to do around the room but for the most part it’s done and the princess LOVES it!

Oh the joys of a new house…

Oh geeze! I have a mess! Let me start out by saying that when I said we were redoing our house that we were moving into I mean we redid pretty much everything! New roof, new heat/cool system, added a bathroom, new paint, new flooring, new cabinets…lots of stuff. Pretty much the only thing we left alone was the hot water heater because it seemed to be fine.

This morning I woke up, showered, took the little dogs outside to potty and started putting on my make-up. Chippie went back to bed and Daisy was running around the house like a maniac trying to see which kid she could wake up. Everybody else in the house was still asleep when all of a sudden I heard a really loud noise and then a gush of water and then just water water water…

Scared the bejesus outta me!

So I ran around the house trying to figure out what was going on. I got to the laundry room, flung the door open to a room FULL of water and water was gushing I mean GUSHING from the top of the hot water heater. I screamed for Josh, he came running and turned it off.

The plumbers were there within the hour and now it is fixed.

Thank goodness because I HATE cold showers!!!

And now let me tell you how flippin fabulous my husband is! You know how I talked about allllll those boxes yesterday? Well, when I got home from work, the kids rooms were unpacked! I heart him. I honestly would rather him do the unpacking, especially the kids rooms because he is a really good organizer and yours truly is NOT. I wish wish wish I was but I’m just not an organized person…don’t get me wrong, I LOVE for things to have a place…I just have issues finding the best way for them to have a place. Does that even make sense?

And speaking of Officer Hubby, he goes back to work tonight. Boo. He’s been off for a little over a week and I think he should be a stay at home dad! I kid.

Boxes, Boxes, BOXES!!

We’re all moved in!!! But we are MOST definitely not unpacked! I’m just going to take my time and have everything exactly where I want it…even if it’s the garbage can! Everywhere you turn there’s a box. I have the kitchen unpacked but that’s the only room I’m good with right now!photo How cute are they?!

First Night!

Yesterday was CRAZY! The first Thursday of every month is usually my SUPER busy day…and it was! PLUS I had to visit my OB/GYN for my yearly check up so that threw things off. OH and about an hour before my appointment Allison and I were coming back to the office after lunch and heard a noise in my car. We looked and there was a big chunk of metal in my I had to drop off my car at the tire place to be fixed and take her car to my appointment! Not to mention that that yearly appointment is just not fun.

My afternoon got a little more exciting when Officer Hubby called to tell me that we would be spending the night in our new house! He has worked his butt off all week getting things moved!(With the help of my Daddy, Brother and his Dad!)

Most of our things are moved in and we spent a little time putting things away. Josh was in the laundry room and heard the breaker for the hot water heater flip…then we smelled smoke!!! Freaked my freak! So we turned it off and the smoke smell went away. Then poor hubs had to spend about an hour convincing me that the house was NOT going to burn down last night and that it was ok for us to stay there!

We were SO excited about being in our new house! Maybe a little too excited because none of us could wind down enough to get to sleep at a decent hour. It was probably close to 11 when the kids and I crashed on the couch watching The Jungle Book! Sometime around 11:30ish Josh put all the kids in bed and woke me up so that we could get in bed. Then we tossed and turned for a while and maybe drifted off to sleep a little when I heard Reece crying. I jumped out of bed and couldn’t see a dang thing!!!!

The country is freakin’ dark folks!


So I felt my way around until I found a light switch and ran to check on her. She was kind of crying in her sleep so I laid with her until she was asleep good again. I don’t really want to start a habit of sleeping with her so I went back to our bed. About an hour later she was crying again. And again I made my way to her room and she was shaking and crying!!!! :( Apparently she was having a bad dream so I took her to our bed where we all slept peacefully for the few hours that were left of the night.

Judge me if you want, I don’t care! My sleep is IMPORTANT! :)

This morning I woke up to get ready for work and had to take a cold shower because of the hot water heater being jacked up. That was fun.

Reece woke up and came in the bathroom where I was showering and was just talking about random things and then she said, “I hope those mens who shot us are gone!”

ohhh emmm geee!!!!

She WAS having a nightmare!!! Poor baby! I felt so bad for her! And I am even more glad that I just let her sleep with us last night.

Our sweet baby nephew is spending the night tonight! Here’s to it being WAY less stressful than last night!!!

House Stuff!

Looks like we’re officially moving the 9th! This week has been pretty stressful trying to make sure people are doing their jobs.

Don’t you worry your pretty little heads though!

I communicated.

Things will be done MY way. The end.

We are SO excited to move, but I am going to miss our little house we’re in now! There were SO many memories made there! I know there will be new memories to make but still!

And speaking of new memories I was looking at Josh’s notes for the blinds and noticed this… DSC_0581

We’re already calling the spare bedroom the “baby’s room”!


Reece is SO ready for a baby sister! Hope she doesn’t mind too much if it’s a boy! :)
