Projects


Last week was OG's (my mom) birthday.  I went to Greenville to help celebrate.  My mom the night before had just gotten back from being in Cabo!  She was tanned, and giddy when I saw her.  The fun part about this birthday is that we got presents from Mexico!  She brought BellaRose back the sweetest dresses and I got a dress of my own.  I can't wait for the summertime now!  Thank you mom and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  It was a wonderful, panini filled party.  




You guys remember this bed?  Hopefully this is BellaRose's future big girl bed.  We have had a few complications and setbacks with the sandblasting.  Who knew that the sand had to be dry in order for this to work.  Hopefully once we get this bump out of the way it will be smooth sailing from here, although it looks like the bedrails might give us a little bit of trouble too.  I have a vision for how I want this to turn out and will be SO disappointed if this does not work out.  Annie is working so hard on "Operation Big Girl Bed".  She is really doing all the work, I just watch the babies and make fun of her in her hazmat suit!  Thanks for the help Annie!

Can't wait to see the bed all finished. Keep us posted on the process cause it sounds really interesting and something I've never seen before. BellaRose is so lucky to have such a pretty bed in the works for her!

O gosh, this project is so much bigger than what we expected. Of course that only makes me want it to work more, you and I quite the team.
This picture of the two of them must be framed in Will's bedroom, I will get on that when we move back in, as well as the bed.

I understand the "size" of your project. I sandblasted our porch railings, took days and what a mess.

Annie can come to Mich with you and teach the correct processe, the railing is in need again.

I'm still totally freaking out about that bed. I covet it.

And I am super impressed that Annie has a hazmat mask. I would have brushed it off with a wire brush and called it good. And then Ry would have grown 2 extra livers or something. Way to be safe, girls!

What a great friend! I can't believe you guys are sand-blasting that thing. I wouldn't even know where to start. Thank Heaven for Annie.

And Happy Birthday to OG. (Am I allowed to call her that?) That looks like a fun birthday and it would be amazing to have a pre-birthday party in Mexico.
