If I had a pause button I would be pressing it right about now. Here I thought things would slow down and be less busy once the kids started school, but I feel like I haven’t taken a breath lately. I suppose Ken and I are bringing on a lot of this ourselves though. Every since we made the decision to not move a couple of years ago we have been gradually doing things around the house to make it more like we want it. Can you believe it’s been almost a year since I started talking about remodeling our kitchen? And I have yet to share official photos! If you had watched any of our videos you would have caught some glimpses. Yesterday we purchased the molding trim for the top of our cabinets. We had received a couple of quotes and they were anywhere from $550 on up. Instead we bought the trim from a wood shop and are going to stain it and add a decorative piece to it for only $130! I still have to order blinds and then we are officially done. Imagine that!
Some other quick thoughts…
Ken and I celebrated our 11th Anniversary this month. He had my engagement ring put into a new platinum setting which I totally love and can’t stop staring at!
We seen the Facebook movie, The Social Network, last week and it was amazing! Totally worth the outrageously priced tickets and popcorn. Since then I read several articles about the guys that were part of the creation of Facebook and have been so intrigued by all of it. Such a simple idea, but superb to say the least. I did read that the movie was based on a book that was written by some guy who only received his information from Eduardo Saverin, who was one of the co-founder’s and CFO for a short time. They make Mark out to look like a real jerk, which I bet is not quite accurate. I suppose it makes the story more appealing. People always want to hate the rich and successful guys. Anyways, I could write an entire story about this topic, but I won’t. Go see the movie though, you won’t be disappointed! Oh, one more thing, the soundtrack of the movie was co-written by Trent Reznor of NIN. If you don’t know who that is, then it won’t matter to you. I just thought it was cool!
We took Andrew and his buddies to a Haunted House last weekend and it was so much fun! The boys were all so scared and they had a blast. My best memories are always those where my kids are happy and smiling. I told Andrew this is something he will never forget…going to his first haunted house with his friends (and parents). It was super scary and totally worth it. For my local friends – it was the Haunted House at the Lucas County Rec Center. Andrew also turned 15 and broke up with his girlfriend on his birthday. SO much drama with teens. I would love for him to just stay single for awhile. (That makes me laugh just to say it. He is already “talking” to some other girl nonstop. Ugh.)
Our high school won their football division – undefeated 9 – 0 for the first time ever. Their first playoff game is tomorrow. So excited for our school!
Well that’s enough rambling for now. Obviously I should post more often so I don’t write so much at once, right!?
Thought I would share our traditional Pumpkin Farm photos for this year too!
A few more photos here...
