Father's Day

So this post is a little late!!!! It was a very busy weekend for our family.Hubby's birthday was Friday,Saturday we( Trent and I ) went away for a night and we came home on Sunday which was Father's day. We had such a nice day and evening in the Chicago suburbs and Sunday we spent the day with the kids here at home w/Paloma and her family .We had a bbq and just relaxed. My boy's and I bought Trent a huge tool cart for Father's day since we have so many tools around the house.It gets really hard to organize them.Hopefully the new tool cart will help!!! Here are some photos from the weekend….

( Hubby) Trent's Birthday Weekend!!!!

My hubby had his 40th birthday this Friday and we threw him a surprise party! The kids and I planned it and schemed for weeks.It was so stressful but we pulled it off.He had no clue!!!! The kids wanted a Hawaiian theme since we love Hawaii and it is our dream to live there one day.We found very cool decorations at our favorite Dollar Tree store. I was so busy hosting the party that I didn't take to many photos.How does that happen?LOL .I did take some before everyone got here to remember how it looked( before the mess).So here are some photos of our house before the party and a few during.

Project time!!!!!!

So it has been a while since we have done a big house project!!!!!! We are always fixing something but we haven't done nothing major lately.Well ,my hubby ripped out our mini side porch floor.If you read the blog I have written about converting this porch into my dream pantry.It has been on my wish list.My hubby has been against the idea but he is finally warming up to the pantry.Back story to how the floor ended up been ripped apart.We were clearing out old junk and garbage from the yard for a bulk garbage pickup and there were two storm doors on the side porch that Yoshi cracked the glass on(super dangerous so I wanted them removed).So I asked my hubby to just remove the doors and get rid of them.So as I am in the front of the house outside.My son and friend come carrying one of the doors to the trash pile.I am like ,"what's dad doing?" Son Trent says,"dad's making a hole in the porch floor".I am like"what?" Then I go to the back and see the whole floor being ripped out!!!!!! That's how we roll!!!!! I was kind of in shock but happy because that was the first step in my pantry makeover..Yeah!!!!! He just put plyboard down as a temporary floor but it looks so much better.My younger son,Julian was hoping there was gold or money hidden under the porch floor,but no such luck!!!!!!Just a big pile of dirt!!! LOL !!!! Here are some photos……
