A Busy Home Project Weekend

Yup... this is happening. My house was officially OUT OF CONTROL this weekend, and today it's not lookin' much better.



Our twins have outgrown their tiny little room upstairs, so we decided to move them down to the finished basement, that has two big empty bedrooms, but that meant:
 * Starting an entire room makeover (so that the basement room they were going to live in didn't "feel" like a basement room)
* Shifting Aubrielle to the girls' old bedroom (that's slightly bigger... like by only a foot...grrr)
* Patching some holes (from the time our master bathroom shower sprung a leak)
* RE-painting our hallway
and
* Concocting plans for a girly kid-only office-space/hangout.

***sigh***

It's only Monday, and I'm already tired. lol. I have so much to post about, that I feel like my head is going to explode. Be patient. It's coming.
:)
But for today... you can enjoy this little nugget, below.

We had to shoot a shopping video for one of our shows, and well, recording even a 20 second little blip with your husband, after an entire day of shopping together in the heat, can sometimes make you a bit grumpy, snappy, and mostly... just silly. I was a little hesitant on sharing this footage because it's totally candid and shows how we interact with each other (which is just weird to see on camera), and also because you get to see how immature and "unprofessional" we really are. ha! (no judging)
But in the tradition of "keeping things real" around here... I just had to share.

PS. In case you were wondering...yes, we are totally aware that we are complete dorks.

  77. Okay, I just did a little crazy happy dance when I saw the first photos...proof that "perfect blogger's houses" DO GET MESSY! Hooray! It feels so good knowing it's not just my house and kids that get messy. :)

    Oh, and anybody else's kids firmly believe that couch pillows are meant to reside on the *floor* so that Mommy can pick them up 50,000 times a day?

  87. Its late at night for me and so this was extra funny to me--probably because it is so something I would do. Thanks for the laugh! This blog rocks. I totally covet your decor style and wish I could wisk you over my home in Omaha and have you transform it with your lovely touch. Lots of love!- gina

  88. By far my favorite post. And I LOVE your DIYs and fun ideas but I LOVED this post. The real photos made me happy and the video. I loved I laughed and I could see that you guys are an awesome couple. Your hubby made me laugh because he was patient and yet not so patient, LOVED it. You are cute and I love the confidence/insecurities you can see like "why do I always start with so?" checking for boogers in the camera haha. LOVED it.
    have I told you I love this post?
    Thank you. So, in short I think you SHOULD do more video posts and leave the bloopers in and everything.
