Looking over the plans

The other day I was organizing all the receipts we had accumulated so far with the house and got them all into a folder. I then was going through tons of cabinet catalogs and deciding on what layouts I liked, what type of wood, color of stain, etc and when I look down this is what I see.

I guess he just wanted to help and give his approval, LOL!

26 weeks

So far during this process of building, brick was one of the things I stressed about the most. What if I don't like it, what if we chose the wrong shade, will this trim look good with the brick, and the list just kept going on and on.

There were many sleepless nights of my mind going crazy. Even after we decided on the brick, I still thought, did we make the right choice. I drove by a house that had the same brick several times, still thinking did we choose the right mortar color and then will the color trim that we want look good with the brick. Oh decisions, decisions. Travis quickly reassured me that it will look fine and not to worry.

I am not a huge decision maker, so I don't know why I thought building a house would be fun. Yeah you get to pick out exactly what you want but these are some major choices we have to make. And brick is not something you can change; you are stuck with it as long as you live in that house. And for us, that is the rest of our lives. So I better like it.

So this week was when we found out, did we make the right choice. The brick started going up and I LOVE IT!!!! It could not have been a better choice.

We celebrated Tyler's birthday on Sunday. We invited all of our family and friends for some fun in the park. There was good food, a lot of bouncing in the bounce house and a fun time was had by all!

Yes, 6 months pregnant and I still got in the bounce house :)
And yes, there was some adults that wanted to still be kids. Here is Travis doing a hand stand.

Tyler meeting the birthday monkey. This monkey gets passed around to every birthday. I am so thrilled that it has made a home in my living room for now.~~Can you sense my sarcasm?~~ Hmmm, I wonder who the next lucky owner will be. Better hope you don't have a birthday coming up, LOL!

Tyler enjoyed watching his #6 sparkler candle. I thought I would try this fun candle instead regular candles, since he isn't able to blow out the candles.
