Work in Progress

O.K. If you know me at all, you know that I loves me a good home improvement project. It doesn't even have to be mine. I especially get excited if I see DEMOLITION!!!! I love before and after pictures. I love the smell of Home Depot and drywall mud. I love watching a semi loaded with trusses headed up the road; I often have the urge to chase it like it were an ambulance to see where it stops! Now, I'm not saying that LIVING with remodeling is a load of fun, in fact, more often than not, it SUCKS!!! But, other than that, I dream of changing almost every part of my home. And I LIKE my home. If you could see into my brain and get an idea of the "dream" version of my house, you'd probably give me a look something like Jason does when I start "expressing" my ideas. Like I just asked for the Hope Diamond or something!! So I try to give it to him in little pieces. Or better yet, wait for it to be his idea! I have occasionally thought of starting a project myself and looking totally inept on purpose, so he'll finish it, but I haven't dared. I'll maybe save that for when things get drastic.

Anyway, it's been awhile since we tackled a project around the house. My husband is great at building and remodeling. I can't think of a type of project he hasn't taken on, except maybe masonry. So far in our house, we've knocked down walls, ripped up & replaced floors, moved cabinets, added heating and cooling, repainted & replaced several doors. So now what? Well, we got this idea. It's kind of crazy, but we think it will work. It's going to add something totally different to the plan of our home. So we have a preview video to show everyone, to see what you think, although, we are going to go ahead with it regardless, so click away.....

Tammy, considering I can kind of see into your brain (because we share one) and have invisioned some of the "dream" versions of your house, I can totally see how this home improvement project perfectly fits. Jason sure knows how to handle his tools! Now if we could just figure out how you can have your baby and get a fence too! And by the way, I love the name Shane. CONGRATS!!!!!!

I knew it! I knew it! I KNEW IT!!
But what I don't know is...How far along are you, anyway?? At least 3 months, but that baby looks pretty big for only 3 months. I can't wait to meet Shane. And can I just express again how incredibly happy I am for you!!!

Congratulations!!!! I don't think I'll ever know anyone as good as you are at keeping a secret! I did have my suspicions just like I did with Nicholas and Cameron, but just like with them, I thought "no, she'd at least give us a clue!" I shoulda known better. I am so happy for you! How are you enjoying living off the pregnancy high? I am SOOOOOO happy for you! Yay!

Wow! That was so cool. I was wondering, but only to James though. You also had that glow. I kept looking at you on Sunday thinking "wow, she looks really pretty ." It must have been the glow! Congrats!

Tammy, have I ever told you that your belly button looks flat? And your upper regional area is quite mountainous? well now, that I have said it, I don't have to think that I am suffering from tarrets, because it is clear that it was meant to be said!
did you know that Erin can also be spelled as Aaron?
