Vroom Vroom

24 Feb


02222013-1The big news in our house this weekend was that Kerry finally bought a new vehicle (I can’t call it a car because it is a really nice SUV!). He has been researching for a long time and many, many months ago his doctor recommended a car that was easier to get in and out of. He returned Friday from his business trip and went straight to the dealership. When I got home from work, a shiny new vehicle was in the garage. It is fun to ride in, and Miss H is super impressed with the TV. She thinks when she says, ‘abracadabra,’ the TV magically folds down. She is mesmerized by the whole thing! We should have gotten this months ago because then car rides would have been much more pleasant.

In other weekend news, we took Miss H to get her bangs cut but she insisted on the whole sha-bang. She loved getting her hair washed by the elephant.



That is pure laughter. This is the most excited she has ever been at Cartoon Cuts.

Then, we went to do a little furniture shopping. She loved all the running space in the warehouse. We found nothing worth bringing home besides the pink balloon.


Today, we headed to the Capital Home and Garden Show to check out gardens and decks with Mom.



The highlight for Miss H was the woman dressed as ivy on stilts.


We were bombarded with information on home products but it was fun and we did set a few appointments for yard and deck estimates. If you need any work done on your house, I definitely recommend paying this show a visit.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!




More House Updates

18 Feb

We knew when we moved into the house that we needed a new door. We finally found the door, and the company that we wanted to work with, in the fall and got our new door, storm door (with screen within) and window installed today. It makes such a difference! And, we can no longer see light around the door 🙂

It was a little cold when they removed the old door and window.


Before (but the picture does not really show off the ugly white door with the brass kick plate and the lock that never seemed to fit right, plus the breeze that came through….)





Plus, we got the ugly boxwoods removed from the front. And, the ugly boxwoods and the unruly holly trees removed from the backyard. Things look a little bare right now but we have new landscaping coming soon.

No weekend would be complete with out a run to Home Depot. Kerry’s head did damage to our dining room chandelier so we needed a replacement. And, Miss H found the face painter.02182013-5

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
