Our House!!!

O.k. people- this is a huge post but seriously our house took up a huge part of our life so I wanted to show off all the hard work that went into transforming something nasty into something homey and beautiful!!

(we didn't take very many before pictures because it totally grossed us out but I should of to give you all the full effect)
The carpet was nasty!! I can't even explain the colors- puke pink probably..

When we ripped up the carpet we found these beautiful wood floors!!!!

Here is the lovely master bathroom with a pink sink and pink tub- the carpet probably matched when it was new..

The kitchen cabinets were like a yellow brown color but all the appliances were new so that was exciting!!


Jason is very good with a hammer and crow bar and stuff :) We learned a ton from fixing this place up- thanks to the help of people teaching us!!

My mom and dad are pro home improver's so they taught us how to texture our ceilings- Thanks mom and dad!!

Here is Katie- ready to have a baby at anytime, but she was always smiling and helping us have a good time!!- Thanks Katie- seriously we couldn't of done it without you guys!!!

My smokin hot handy man :)

Colby redid his wood floors and they are beautiful so he helped us do ours and we couldn't be happier with the results :) Thanks Colby I appreciate all your help and electrical help too!!

Jake and Katie were helping us all the time- they were our motivators and they are pro painters so they helped make sure it turned out good!! Thanks so much guys- I think we would still be fixing the place up if you guys didn't help us!! I'm glad we can do normal hang out things now instead of work on the house every night!! haha love you guys!!

Even after working hard all day and night he still looks amazing!! Love ya hun!! :)

Jason and Jake

This is our favorite room in the house!! Our couch is seriously the most comfortable thing ever!! And I love my red wall Jason was so good to me and let me paint fun colors through out the house!! Jason's favorite part is his TV mounted on the fireplace..

This is the plum wall that took a lot of convincing to get!!!! Jason and Jake and Katie surprised me one day and had it painted when I got home from work :) We have white cupboards now and it looks fabulous!
Our bedroom
Jason's office (I have a craft room but it is kinda the storage room right now)

Our main bathroom- the tub was pink too but we had it redone and it is white now.. I still need to make the curtains for this room.. the colors are tans and browns and golds!! My favorite Greg Olsen angel picture is hanging above our toilet..
The navy ocean bathroom :) it was hard to get a good picture so I just thought I would show ya the awesome blue wall!

Thank you everyone who helped us!! We couldn't of done it with out you all!! We love you all so much and appreciate all your help!!!

"You got me a puppy!!!!!"

O.k. this is a funny story!! So ever since last summer, and now thinking about this summer I have been telling Jason that I need a little fuzzy friend to be my buddy. I finally stopped a little while ago because me bugging him about it wasn't doing anything. On Friday night we were talking about Valentines day and he says "what if I got you a puppy for Valentines.." I tried not to get my hopes up but then later that night he pulls out the computer and starts looking and puppies on KSL. So seriously anyone would guess that this was my surprise that he had been talking about right? I found one that we really liked. On Valentines day I was asking him questions to figure out what it was. all his answers still led me to believe that I was getting a puppy.. when i went to hang out with my little sisters I told my family that I had finally figured out my surprise.. and once again we looked online and that cute little puppy that we loved was sold and being picked up that afternoon.. when I went home I got the news.... there was no puppy waiting for me to name.... Its really funny now that I think about it.... I love the perfume that Jason got me !! He likes it too because it doesn't smell bad or poop :)

Most romantic day ever!!!!!

Valentines was fabulous with Jason. He worked that morning so I went to a movie with my little sisters and had a blast!! That night he took me to eat where we went on our first date. Then we watched a chick flick and a man movie :) Jason got me my favorite perfume he was so sweet!!! I love you so much hun!! Thanks for making Valentines day so wonderful!!!

Valentines nails

So the other night Jason had his a work meeting and I got a little bored.. I hadn't done acrylic for awhile because I didn't have the time to keep them up- but hopefully now I will find the time. I felt like being festive for Valentines day and here is what I came up with...

I am so thankful for my eyes!!!

Ok- so the other day while I was at school I was walking into the sales building with Nate and we noticed a kid and he kept walking into some windows. He was blind and we thought he was trying to find the door, but he needed to be in a building clear across campus.. Nate went to his class so I walked this kid to the other building.. The whole time I was walking him I kept thinking about how grateful I am that I can see and that all my senses are working great!!!! It took us a half hour to get to the other building and it normally just takes about five. I'm so glad I had this little experience to help me remember how blessed I really am and not to take so many things for granted. :)
