WOW- eee: part 1 construction

Things have been so busy! Last weekend we were working on the driveway and my father excavated our phone line. This in turn cut my life line ie: the internet. :) It has given me a lot of time to spend with my little ones.

Over this past week we have been able to get a lot of stuff done with the house. The carpet is down in the basement and it looks amazing. Jeff won't let me call it a "basement" anymore- he says its our "lower level". ha Whatever you call it, its amazing. Its like having a whole nother house down there. Ayla loves to run in circles and play. Mommy loves the new carpet smell and the feel of the softness under my feet. Daddy loves that its done, finally! ha

We also finished up plumbing. We kinda put it off at the beginning of our construction, hoping it wouldn't be necessary. After a couple of issues, we said, FINE. Now we both feel so much better. That left obsene holes in my beautiful walls. So that has since we repaired, but painting needs to be done. I will update with the final project soon. We need to paint and hang new blinds & curtains first.

Outside I did get a little bit of landscape down. Not much, but I have asked for this as my mother's day gift. Just some time out there and my plants :) I love to landscape! So I am hoping it stays dry all weekend! We got our drive dug out and the concrete guys were supposed to dig for the retainment wall, but in case you didn't notice, it monsooned this afternoon. The plan is to have a driveway by next weekend's bday party and hopefully a new back patio!
