This past week has been one of the those, “If I could just get through this week…” kind of weeks.
I can remember saying that phrase a lot during college finals but now I’m saying it about normal, everyday life except the final is more about being able to survive three kids being sick, managing a construction site, working from home and trying to find time to take a shower during the week.
Calgon! Where the heck are you?
Just when I thought I was done for, reinforcement landed on my door step and saved me. My sweet mom drove up all the way from Vegas in a wicked snow storm to help me sew curtains, cook a 4 course meal out of the scraps I had in my pantry and spoil my boys with soda pop, Cheetos, and Hex Bugs.
She’s the best bestie a girl could ever have. Thank you mom.
Now that mom has crossed a great deal off my to-do list I can catch my breath again and give you a construction update.
Here was the state of our basement at the beginning of the summer, 2013.
I told the Mr. to pose for the camera and this was the best he could pull off.
(Good try Sweets).
Welcome to our basement family room.
Fresh white paint…
Faux wood tile floors…
Toasty fireplace with lots of shelves and a spot for a tv!
Ba-da-bop-ba-da, I’m lovin’ it!
We moved one of our sofas down, put up a tv, accessorized a few shelves and smoked ourselves out with the fireplace. It’s coming together slowly but surely. I’ll show you more just as soon as I can clean up the 20 board games that are strewn all over the floor.
*I received some product from the Vendors listed to feature in this remodel.*
