A mysterious box from the mail man.

So yesterday on the way home, we thought it was well overdue time, we stop and check the mail at our Post office box. Blake was sleeping in the car, from a busy afternoon playing with his cousins Brennan and Bailey. They all stayed the afternoon with his grandmother while we shopped for flooring with Aunt Jess for our new place. It was Blake's first time staying without one of us, for more than an hour. Gunry D says everything was fine and she is not even sure he EVER realized we were gone. WHAT he didn't even miss me. Whay! So I stay in the car, while Josh goes inside. Moments later he returns with a stack of mail and a medium sized white box addressed to me. For me, ummm I'm not expecting a package. Josh says can I open it....of course. Sure go ahead. He removed the white mailer paper and opens the box. He proceeds to pull out multiple pieces from the friendly forest line that Ive been drooling over. What, OMG, Wow, are you kidding, needless to say I was in love. The clear stamps, the photo mat pad, the brads, the chipboard circles and more. Ahhh I'm so thankful to get these items. Also enclosed was a beautiful black and white paisley card with aqua blue accents that read Happy Birthday. So make sure you go over and visit my generous friend Brynn's Blog. She is so talented and creative. Thank you Brynn. Be sure to leave a comment saying hello and tell her thank you for me.



This past weekend we were able to get alot accomplished. With the help of Tim (Josh step-dad) which is an amazing carpenter, we were able to completely re-floor the entire place with 3/4 inch plywood. We have 2 pieces of drywall, carpet, and wood floors and thats it, then we can make the call to have our "stuff - junk" delivered. Im going to hold off on painting until after we moved in to rush the process and hopefully make the right choice the first time with colors. As it stands currently the LR and Kit will be a nice shade of medium yellow/green. Our room will be a greenish teal blue (on Jills advice) and blakes room a warm yellow. That could totally change at any time though. We are hoping to be moving in by the end of next week.

If you know anyone who needs carpentry work in GA let me know. Tim really is a fabulous at his job. Message me.
