Where have we been?!?!

Is it already the 18th? No way. This month has gone super fast.
Well Ryan started school on the 4th. He's back at Lake Washington Technical College working towards getting his WABO welding certification. It's been a hard transition. He starts at 6pm every week day and doesn't get home till after 9pm. I only get to see him for about 45 min a day during the week. Just enough time for dinner and a kiss. We're getting used to it though and it will be beneficial in the long run.

Other news which has been keeping us VERY busy... we're doing some mild remodeling of our house. So far we got a new(to us) couch and rearranged the whole living room, including another bookshelf for me(yay!).
We have painted:
The spare bedrooms-light creamy tan in the smaller room, purple in the larger room(for our new roommate)
The spare bathroom-light blue, also added texture and painted the vanity white
The hallway-light creamy tan
The dining room/living room wall-warm brown
We have replaced all the interior doors with new paneled doors, new moldings in the newly painted areas.
We are also going to install new vinyl windows throughout the house and new fake wood flooring in the kitchen and both entryways.
Ryan's dad has been an enormous help with EVERYTHING. We could not have done it all without all his effort and time. I'm so thankful for a father in law with such skills and willingness to help us. It's amazing.
And by we, I mostly mean Ryan and his dad with my input. I have helped paint as much as I can. But I'm not the most skilled person when it comes to home projects.

It's all very exciting and is already looking a hundred times better. I plan on writing a before and after blog post detailing all the exciting changes soon.

See here I am with the mini touch up roller helping paint the hallway!
