We have a ceiling!!!!

This has been a very hectic week in our home.Trent's brother John came over to start the ceiling.It was really exciting at first then the reality set in. Stuff all over the house!!!! Working on the kitchen was so disruptive to our schedule but we managed. The guys took everything out of the kitchen so we could put up a scaffel. That included the stove.We cooked out of a crockpot the first night but after a few days even that was getting complicated.I cann't even describe how every room was affected with the overflow.When we thought about opening up our ceiling we really didn't think it would be that complicated and as always it ended up being more expensive and took longer than we thought.

We are once again water proofing a few basement walls.I attempted but it was a joke.Water still came in when it rained heavily.I have been bugging my hubby to do it and he finally did!!!!!! We will probably coat the wall one more time and then I will prime and paint.In the meantime it looks ugly. Oh well,it is better than having a river in the basement.

Dreaming of the vacation house

I am collecting pictures of rooms and styles that inspire me.One day I plan on buying another home that is our weekend/vacation house.I have been thinking about it for the past 2 years.Of course,it will be larger than this house!!!! I also would like acres of land .We live in a urban area and I really would love a country house!!!!! My neighbors are really great but I crave more privacy.I definitely want an older house.Hopefully one with all the details that I love(fireplaces,stained glass,pocket doors,etc.).Here are some great pictures I found.

We have been decorating for Halloween.Trying to make our house spooky!!!!!! Also distracting me from the kitchen ,we still haven't started.I am on the verge of an anxiety attack.I have alot of things going on all at once. This is a favorite time of year for me.I just LOVE fall.The weather here in Wisconsin has been really great.
