Seriously, I took pictures of our lighting, still in the boxes. I really need to get a life.
Oh, and isn't Diet Mt. Dew so wonderful! Ahhh

For our dining room. Nice and simple!

Matching pendant for the entry.

Ryan and I spent a day taking turns painting the molding. A DAY. Holy smokes there was A LOT of molding.

Ryan loathes to paint. He needs to listen to his ipod otherwise, I think he might go crazy. I myself love to paint. I am not good at it at all but, I still enjoy it.

The siding guys are cruising right along. They work everyday, till it is done, unless it rains of course. And, we may get a few sprinkles tomorrow. So, they may get a reprieve sooner than later.

This is the back of the garage with our little doggie door. The plan is for this door to lead to a fenced in area about 7ftX10ft on a concrete slab. We are hoping that we can teach them that when we open the kitchen door that leads to the garage all they need to do is go through this door to get outside.

We NEED to contain the doogie do.

At our old house they always went in the front yard and I hated it. And I don't use the word hate very often. I would stress about always making sure it was picked up, so people wouldn't see it. And in the spring we always had poop soup and our grass was all spotted.

No More Baby!

I am always trying to sneak around and take photos of the guys working so, I have some action shots. I don't think they really appreciate me taking their pictures all the time. But, these guys are such a big part of our lives right now and we are very thankful for them.

I never took a picture of the steps from the kitchen. Here you go.

I spent most of today painting the boys' closets and our bedroom. For our room I chose Blue Heather from Behr. It really is the most beautiful shade of blue. I really need to get Ryan in here with his camera because mine has no flash and all of our colors are seeming really muted. This just looks gray but, it isn't.

Ok, so here is our aDOORable door. I hear it was one heavy little lady. We had 2 guys outside and 2 guys inside lifting her into place.

Here I am sneaking shots.

She is so beautiful. I am in love and I want to make a wreath tomorrow for her. Or at least ASAP.

Later today, we went back to the house and the back was basically completely sided.

Super, Super excited!

Johnsie is going to miss playing on all of the dirt piles.

I love the doggy door and the idea of containing the poop! Our kritters poop out back and in the summer we just mow right over it, but in the winter...eeiiieeewww! Nasty!

Love seeing all the progress!

Yes, that does seem to be a problem with dogs! I think I have more piles in my yard now and I don't even have a dog.
