A little project

Well...not feeling too well these past few days! :( Haven't been sick in awhile so I guess I'm due!...what better way to pass the day than set up the kids with a movie and blog!




Here's before and after pics of a little project that Nate and I started after Christmas...when I say Nate and I...I really mean Nate. You can only imagine...there are 54 cupboards and drawers.


We had to take them off...sand, and then paint 3 coats...sand the edges and then 2 more coats of clear...remember each coat had to dry. I thought it would never get finished! Nate managed to finish them all in about a month!...







We still have a lot left that we would like to do...crown molding on the cupboards, back-splash tile...and the floors...but this was a fun and fairly inexpensive change to get us started! I guess if we get bored we can get started on the cupboards in the 3 bathrooms...








Ashtyn finally turned 3 months on the 17Th. I can now take her to the gym nursery! One of my favorite things...is getting time at the gym...it is so good for me physically and emotionally to have that time to myself everyday! My favorite are the spinning classes!....


So now that I'm going to be working out...I figured I best be gettin' healthy again! I had decided that after all the Valentine treats were finished...we are eating healthy! I was going to resist from making baked goodies for awhile! Literally within minutes of that thought...

My husband ordered 8 boxes of Girl Scout cookies...guess we'll have to start the diet next week! :)
