Well, Christmas was super fun to say the least, Noah was pretty into his presents (the ones he could immediately play with). He was definitely into the car that "Santa" brought him, loves his wagon (pics to come) and his Mickey toys. He has really hopped all around to a different toy each day, but is definitely keeping busy with all of them. Here are some of the highlights of this week...

Check out the blog Mommy Buzz run by one my highschool friends, Krysten, who is a mom of 2 herself. It is a blog about all sorts of mommy related things! She is doing a giveaway this week of some awesome jewelry from Bella Bling. Check it out!

Here are a few current renovations pictures. Still several things to be done, but it won't be much longer! We are finally ALMOST done painting! That has been one of the longest projects. We still have to complete an entirely gutted bathroom, re-do the stairs (thanks to a sweet friend who is helping us out bigtime!), and then the new up and downstairs floors can be installed and we are on our way to moving things in!
painted and new windows!
a glimpse of my tropicana cabana cabinets!
the living room, freshly painted.
we are smiling under those masks!
crazy sweet husband and I, for some reason, decided to move the new tub upstairs on our own. It was seriously a sight to see! At one point, he actually lowered me over the tub so I could slide down it to get to the bottom. That is one NARROW staircase!
So it has been fun, crazy and way too many decisions to make to renovate a house, but I just love this house so much! I can't wait to move in!
I have officially put blood, sweat, and tears into this place!

I CANNOT believe it, but my crazy colorful wreath made it to the top 8 of Eddie Ross' Wreath Challange! Please go to his website and vote for mine! Number SIX!! Yay! I was so impressed that he actually commented on Taylor's blog about our wreath-making, and as soon as I sent my entry in, his partner wrote me right back! Very nice guys and such a FUN craft!
