The Boys

So my boys are getting so big. Jack turned 2 in May and Michael is officially 8 months old. We just went on our first family vacation a few weeks ago and the boys did great! Michael is finally sitting up on his own great (when Jack lets him) and is eating baby food 3 times a day now. He does a funny crawl where he lays on his tummy with his legs straight out and pulls himself with his arms. Jack loves his baby brother but sometimes drives me nuts cause he won't leave the little guy alone. Jack is such a funny little guy and says the funniest stuff. He always knows when I open the pantry door because he'll appear out of nowhere and when he wants a chocolate covered raisin he says, "One, just one, just one, no more k, just one" I wonder where he got that from. Anyhow being a Mom is the best and I abolutely love my boys. They are so much fun and I'm so glad they're mine.

Kitchen Redo:)

I've been having a hard time looking at my house because I realized how blah it looks. My whole house except for the boys room is extremely neutral. I kid you not my home consisted of browns, black, and a very taupey green. So I decided to redo my kitchen because my neighbor did and I was so impressed that she basically just used what she already had.  So I decided what colors to go with and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Baby blue, pumpkin orange, and a kind of lime sage green. Seriously picture every decoration and it was all some shade of brown. The big round plate didn't have an S either I just printed and cut out an S and spray painted over it. I also antiqued most of my decorations after I spray painted them because they were really too bright and almost harsh. Anyhow I wish I had before pics but I forgot to do it. I had a ton of fun and only spent around $8 for the spray paint and I didn't even use all of the cans, and about $4 for the flowers. Besides that everything was already mine. Now I just need to get some pictures in the frames and we'll be set!!
