Life has been busy.
Busy. Busy. Busy.
We’re finishing our basement, so we’ve spent time perfecting the design, picking out fixtures, paint colors, and furniture. Although I usually wait until the finished product is complete to show off our work, I’m too excited about it, so here they are:
Before and (almost) Afters:
We’re very anxious to be done. I love it thus far and cannot wait for it to be finished! Once complete, we’ll have a family room, a bed room, unfinished storage with shelves, and a full bathroom with tiled flooring. For now, we don’t need a fourth bedroom, so until then, the downstairs bedroom will be MY room. I’ll have a tv/tivo, a craft table, and a recliner. Oh, I can’t wait.
Last weekend, me and 64,000 of my closest friends participated in the St. Louis Komen Race for the Cure. Rather than wearing the race shirts, we had “Got D” shirts made! With recent research showing that breast cancer patients with low D are 94% more likely to have their cancer spread and 76% more likely to die from the cancer, we couldn’t NOT wear the D shirts.
This year, several people from my office joined my team, so there were 11 of us (up from 4 last year)! It was another AMAZING year at the race. Good weather, good people, great cause, fun times!
(Notice my sisters pregnant belly on the far left?!)
And, we’ve been spending lots of time at my parents house swimming in the pool and relaxing in the hot tub.
Even Cooper got in on the action:
I’ve traded in my blogging for swimming, but I promise to post more often than I have been.
It’ll be another full weekend. Hubs brother and his wife and baby moved to STL this week! YEAH! I think we’re heading over there for dinner tomorrow night. Before that, we’ll clean out the debris from the basement and get some other big things done around the house. I have a three day weekend, as I’m taking Monday off since the carpet and tile are being installed then.
Alright, its past my bedtime. Have a great weekend!
