Challenge: What kinds of things stop you from creating?
1. I'm 35 weeks pregnant, and just too tired after the kids are in bed.
2. We are installing laminate downstairs and trying to get as much done as possible before I give birth.
3. 2 words: Declan and Teagan ('nuf said)
4. Message boards taunting me, I waste most 'spare' time I have reading message boards.... looking for inspiriation ironically.
So, back to the flooring..... yeah..... ummmmm. Well, laminate flooring is sold like it's so easy to install, even a caveman can do it. It really is a lot more work than they let on. After the tile demolition, we were hoping that everything else would go quickly and smoothly. I'm pretty sure that we (Greg) have a system down now, but we had quite the learning curve. We would lay 8 pieces down, ruin the last one, tear out 5 of them, and ruin 3 of those. We were fearing we didn't order enough for all the screw ups. As the weekend progressed though, we made headway and although we won't be done for another weekend or so, it's definitely looking better!
And then lastly, here are some photos of the kiddos 'riding' the brooms like horses. I got them these cute red felt cowboy hats at Wally. It was all Teagan's idea, and they ran all over the place saying "YeeHaw!" I think Teagan rode her horse backward half the time, but she didn't care. These kids are just plain silly.

I also finished 'altering' my ATG tape gun. What is an ATG tape gun you ask? Well, take a lookey here
And then take a lookey here to see mine ~ blinged out!
It was red when I got it, but that just wouldn't do. It needed to match the rest of my scrapping tools, and looks cute in my scrap tote. Anywhoooo, I've got to get scrappin so I can use this baby.
I need to get busy painting the walls behind where the stove is going to go, and some baseboards. We are planning on putting down the underlayment and laminate this weekend. May the force be with us....... Just wish Nana was here to keep the kids busy!

Where to start? Teagan got some sort of hideous virus, and she was down and out for like 10 days. I could not break this poor childs fever, she was miserable, and we felt so bad for her.
Needless to say, the air quality in our house was crap. Oh, and did I mention that Otis completely broke out in hives. Yeah, there truly never is a dull moment at this house....
