Updates All Around

1.  Abby Update:  It was Flashback Friday at school and we were told to dress from the decade we were born in.  Though I mostly wore My Little Pony and Rainbow Brite in the 80s (I was only 7 in 1989), I couldn't help myself from dressing like an 80s teenager.  Strangely enough, I pulled everything except the leg warmers straight from my closet.   And, I have to admit, I really kinda liked the leg warmers...

2.  Kitchen Update: For Realz, Y'all:  I HATE REMODELING.  Just ask my husband.  I'm going 12 kinds of crazy living the remodel.  Mainly because having just one room of our house out of commission pretty much affects every other room.  {i.e. All the appliances are in the dining room, so it's a mess.  I can't easily access the door to the basement, so there is gobs of laundry to do.  The laundry is taking over my bedroom floor, so it's a mess.  All of our kitchen-esque items are in the spare room along with Becks' toys that are usually downstairs, so the entire upstairs is a mess.  The bathroom is doubling as a kitchen, so IT'S. A. MESS. } 

But, then there's the progress.  There are so many seemingly small, but totally significant things that have to be done before we can do the fun stuff {like paint and hang cabinets} that it seems as if nothing is getting done.  We had our gasline moved to the opposite side of our kitchen on Thursday, and B patched walls and hung a slab of drywall today. 

Gus the Gasline.  He's ready for the stove.  So am I. 

The best part of DIY is doing things on your own time.  In your jammies.


3.  Becks Update:  He's such a pumpkin.  I love this child.  He says and does the silliest things.  Like blow bubbles into his milk and then drink it.  Yum. 


He also makes very important phone calls on the stud finder. Love it.

4.  Cute Weekend Pic Updates

All the peanuts watching The Polar Express.  My sister and I totally paused the movie to bring out hot chocolate during the song and pulled out some pretty accurate dance moves straight from the movie.  I'm telling you, you'd be impressed.
I hope you had a great weekend!  And enjoy it if it's not over yet :)

I've done renos on every room except the kitchen and I never want to. Bedrooms and bathrooms I can deal with. But the kitchen, no way. Kudos to you for getting through it without going off the deep end. And that sleepover looks like the cuddliest thing ever! They're all cutie pies. And as usual, Becks' faces are cracking me up.

I know you can't wait for the kitchen to be done! I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Rockin' that 80's outfit!! I can't tell you how many times leg warmers would come in quite handy in this bitingly cold weather we've been having, huh? Cute sleepover picture too!

Katie said...

I sneak leg warmers at home when I'm freezing cold. SO comfy! :)

Lyr said...

ok, why oh why could I not look like that at my 80's party?! You my dear is what made the 80's look good. :)

Hi, I'm Harmony said...

Those leg warmers are too cute! Honestly, the 80's are in style, so you really don't look out-of-date. You look trendy! ;)

Hi Abby! I love love your blog! I've been following it for a while but have never commented. Seeing as I just started my own, I realized how much they mean! Good luck with all the construction =)

I have always said that I was meant to be born in the 80's:). You look so precious in your getup. And I also love B's pajama pants. I have been living in mine lately b/c I'm too stubborn to buy more maternity clothes. Ha! Cute picks of B Junior too:).
