Amazin Man

That's who I married.  Seriously, how does one perfect so many skills in only 31 years of life!!??

Remember that old window in the red room without any molding or finished touches... THIS one...

Now it looks like this!!!! I can't stop going into the room to sneak another peak. It's beautiful.

Gotta love a handy man!

Demolition Begins

We bought a house.  A fixer upper in every sense of the word and we have the joy of living in a construction zone for the next few months.  Actually, Phil and I are having fun with the whole remodel project.  We started in Chase's room...because a happy kid makes for a happy home :)

Before...ALL walls were red...YIKES!!!

During...clearly we're not trying to be careful with the carpet.  Phil scraped off the popcorn ceiling, retextured all the walls, ripped off the baseboards and moldings, and fixed the hole I put into the wall as I was trying to take down some shelving.  Next on the agenda...carpet, paint, new baseboards, and new windows.  LOVE it and love Phil for working so hard and being so good at EVERYTHING!
