Wow I feel like I started running right after Thanksgiving and I still haven’t stopped and I’m still not caught up on everything.

The Good News though—

WE moved to the basement– Yay!! Happy happy JOY joy– dear, my dishes and silverware and stuff I’ve missed you :)

The So so news—-

It’s still not all the way done :)  but if we wanted to be in before Christmas it was now or never cuz my lucky parents were leaving on a cruise and won’t be back till 2 days before Christmas.

So here is the currently on the basement——-{someday they’ll be a all the way finished pictures of the basement- someday}

For now were happy just to have our own little space again………
A Kitchen

I missed my table and someday we’ll finish the Pantry Cabinet with beadboard doors, crown and baseboard and the Island and paint the trim and ya :)
We even have our own entrance– sweet!
A nice bedroom with lovely painters tape trim around the window– ya I need to paint still :)
 and we squished those kiddo’s into one room–:)
 Delila even found a perfect place to stay :)
 And we put up our Christmas tree– pretty much that’s been the majority of my decorating for Christmas this year– it just ain’t happening– too much to do.
And a bathroom– so important you really can’t live without them :)
I’m very happy to have our own space again– and I’m sure my parents are glad to have us out of their space 2 :)
Winner Winner :)
and it’s…

I love Blogging– and a big part of that reason is because of the amazing people I’ve been able to meet and get to know more about through blogs– I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read through the comments that are left and how they have just made my day and made me so happy! here are  some of my favorites :) and there are so many more—
Blogger Calise said…I just found your blog through the CSI Project (The table turned out beautiful, not picnic-tabley whatsoever :D) and I have a serious blogcrush now. I was scrolling through your posts, saving everything in sight, then I saw this post and was filled with glee since I was scouring the internet just earlier today for good pettiskirt tutorials and yours is so straightforward. Whew, getting long-winded. Anyway I wanted to compliment you on the blog and tell you I will be following with girlish anticipation.

:D Calise
Blogger Ana White said…Ali, your work needs to be in magazines! This table is absolutely beautiful! 
Blogger Christina said…That is so funny. I’ll never get the pink hammer:( Just so you know, I linked to you from Knock Off Wood and have spent the last hour+ reading your blog. I just seemed to connect with you on so many different levels so I kept reading and reading. We have a lot in common. Based on a couple things I read, we may have even lived close once (I live in Ucon,ID). Anyway, didn’t want you creeped out in case you noticed a stranger viewing your blog for such a long time. Good luck with #3. It was a hard adjustment for me, but it’s so wonderful now:) BTW- LOVE the bed. I’m going to have my hubby make one for our toddler boy this summer. Can’t wait.
Blogger The Special K’s(0: said… Love it love it love it. And even better when it’s for FREEEEEEE (loved that movie too, btw). So much light! Your sweet family has worked so hard, and it turned out AWESOME! Way to be(0:

The Basement Update
What I have been doing…………../where have I been……… / is it ever going to end…………….
- Installed Kitchen Cabinets 
- Layed flooring + Cut Baseboard
  Make mess- clean mess- make mess- clean mess :)
Tile– ugh oh the tile– and we still have to grout :)
and Painting now– :) who said this was gonna be fun- Cuz it feels like it’s taking forever
I guess it hasn’t all been bad– it’s made me so frustrated with how slow it’s been going I finally got the courage to dye my hair dark– Hey it was something I could change and get some instant gratification from and I kinda like it:)
So sorry my blog’s been well prolly boring but this project has literally taken over my life– and I guess it’s a good thing cuz’ we do need a place to live :)
