Sorry it's been a few days.  I haven't had much to blog about.  I don't really tonight either, but I have a few completely random things that I can blab about!  :-)

1.  The Bachelor is back.  Who's watching?  I really would like to make a bunch of comments, but I already know what happens the entire season so I feel like I might accidentally give something away and I would feel really bad for all of you that actually like to watch like a normal person.  Let me just say this.  Blogger Jenna?  Crazy + too much alcohol = WOW!  I like Kacie and Nicki so far I think.  I hope there is some drama because I think Ben is a little boring.  Anyone else?

2.  My baby wants to run.  Not walk.  Run.  She keeps taking off as fast as she can.  She stumbles about 4 steps out and then falls on her face.  But when she just stands up, she can balance for awhile.  And when she takes her time and walks like a normal child?  She walks!  She walked all the way across the toy room today.  Like she's been doing it all her life.  But most of the time she's too impatient and just takes off and her feet don't move fast enough.  I have tried several times to get this on video.  But whenever she sees me get the Bloggie out, she just wants to eat it.  I try to be sneaky, but she's good.  Hopefully a video of my almost one year old walking will be coming soon though!  Can you believe her birthday is Monday?  Ahhh!

3. We have a new TV stand.  This is my type of excitement!  We got a new one for upstairs and then we put our old one down in the basement.  More on the basement later.  Anyway, Tyler decided it would be a good idea to start putting it together at about 9:00 on Friday night.  We have always enjoyed doing projects like this together.  We make a good team.  I read the instructions and tell him what to do and he does it.  I get the easy job!  But I was NOT feeling it on Friday night.  I kept telling him I was going to bed and he'd have to do it alone.  But anyway, he won and we got started...

And finally at 11:00, I was still up, and it was done!  And it looks great!  We didn't want to pay a lot for one, but still wanted it to look nice in the living room.  We got this one half price at Shopko.  I'm pretty happy with it!

And Kyla just loves those doors!

Isn't she cute in her new outfit from Grandma and Grandpa?

4.  Now a basement update.  Remember how I was really excited that we were getting our couch delivered last Friday?  Well, they couldn't get the damn thing to fit through the door down there.  So Saturday we had to go order a new one.  This time we got a sectional (instead of a couch and recliner).  The sectional comes apart and we're going to cross our fingers that it will get down there.  I had a little panic attack that we weren't going to have furniture down there by next Saturday for Kyla's birthday party.  But the new one is going to come next Friday.  Close call.  But it works for me!

The electrician is coming Friday to finish up.  He just has to put the hallway light and vanity lights in the bathroom in.  And then Tyler just has to finish the baseboards in the bathroom.  He got all the doors done, door knobs on, vent/heat covers on, etc. 

The plumber came last week so we now have a working toilet, shower and sink down there.  Woo hoo!  I need to go get the little things like toilet paper holder, towel rack, etc.  Oh, I can feel the end so close!  I cannot wait to post final pictures soon!

5.  Why does my baby love emptying drawers?  I mean, seriously?!  Between the kitchen drawer and her bedroom drawers...

She also started taking every single diaper out of the baskets.  Until Daddy moved them to the top of the changing table.  Silly girl.  I really don't care because she doesn't hurt herself and it keeps her occupied.  I guess she knows how much I just love folding laundry!


  1. Yay Kyla! Brielle is really close to walking too. She doesn't try to run but she'll take 1-2 steps and then you can just see on her face an expression of "I could crawl way faster than this!" and she drops to her knees to crawl lol

    Love your new entertainment stand!

  2. I'm watching the bachelor & total agree Jenna is off her rocker!! I like Lindzi the girl who rode in on a horse

    Good job Kyla. Keira is almost running, it's funny to watch her cause shell be walking & hears kaylee & takes off trying to go as fast as possible.

    Can't wait to see pics of Kyla's party

  3. Okay, I so want to watch The Bachelor, but I haven't had time to watch the episode from this week yet! I don't know how you can stand knowing...that is so funny! I have been hearing a lot about this crazy lady, so I am excited to see it myself!

    Love the new tv stand...so pretty!

    Everything will look great for Kyla's birthday party!!!
