Finally...a new post!

We have been busy. Really it's true. Ron keeps asking me when I am going to update so it is finally here. I'm updating.
1. We finally moved! Yippie! Our house is alas done (kinda) and we are living there. No we do not have blinds yet (lucky neighbors) nor mirrors in anyone but Addi's bathroom, and we do not have toilet paper holders yet (they are in some closet somewhere) but we have heat, we have food, we have cable so our lives are good.
This is the front, door still needs to be painted, but it is awesome, I still feel proud driving up to it.
Here are some of my favorite things:

My kitchen, ahhh. I love my kitchen. Ron totally spoiled me in this area. I love my ovens, I love my big giant sink, I love my cabinets and bar. Sadly, the thing I am most armored with is my ice maker/crusher. Our fridge is the bomb. It can make snow cones! But I love the crushed setting. I have never drank so much in my life, sadly for those of you that know me, I do not like ice WATER, so what I drink with my crushed ice daily is not exactly healthy....

This is our great room, I love our giant cozy fireplace and big windows. You can tell a chick made this house because our TV is totally dwarfed by the giant hearth.
This is my sweet claw foot tub, sadly our plumber sucks and has still not hooked it up. Sucky plumbers, plus without blinds the show would be wild so I guess I just have to stare at it till its all resolved. Sigh.

Addi's room is getting done for Christmas, she gets her big girl bed and all that jazz so I will get pictures of that later.

Our house really feels like home now. The first couple of nights were a tad rough because Addi misses her Grandma (and her grandma's bed) so very much, but I think she likes that everything is all on the one floor so she knows I cant hide from her like I used to. I love this place and I feel so lucky to have a husband who works this hard for us.

Speaking of hard work....
2. Thanksgiving Picture:
We wanted to share with everyone why we are so Thankful this year...

If you cant read her shirt is says BIG SISTER! We decided that since we cant afford furniture for our house, we might as well fill it up in other ways! Our new baby, or (Addi's baby) like she says will come to us in late June, (good timing Ronny!)Addi is pumped, she has been a good little nurse and is so cute when my face is in the toilet. She will say:

"Does your belly hurt mommy?"
"Ya, I don't feel very good."

"It is the baby?"

"Ya, I think it is the baby."

"It's a big baby hu?"

"Not yet but it will be."

"I want to hold her."

Then she cries until I tell her that we cant hold the baby yet and she thinks I am mean. But soon enough she will get to hold the heck out of it, I promise!

This post is nothing but amazing. At first I was blown away with the picture of your ginormous house... then when I saw the picture of your kitchen I piddled in my pants a little bit... then you pretty much killed me off when you decided to cleverly announce that you are with child. I'm surprised I can type with my rising blood pressure! Congrats Mandy Moo! I'm so excited for you guys! I was wondering when you were going to pop another cutie out! Can't wait till June.

PS I'm not mad that you don't love Twilight... I wish I loathed it too, but I don't. I'm cursed.

Jodi said...

I've been dreaming of that bath tub...and as soon as I show Tate your awesome white cupboards, he will be on my side. I'm thinking of quitting my job and hanging out in your gorgeous house...but not until that tub is hooked up. You let me know.

Brian and Lauren said...

Mandy! Your house is beautiful! I love it and I love how light an open it is! You are a very lucky mama <3 I've been DYING for you to announce baby #2 (not like I knew or anything- I just cant wait for you to reproduce more darling kiddos). CONGRATS on EVERYTHING :)

Cynthia and Bryan said...

MANDY !! What have you been doing holding out on us ! Why in the world did you splatter us with pics of your beautiful house earlier !! And yes, your kitchen is awesome. Congrats on the new addition ! Poor Addi will be so disappointed if the baby ends up being a boy...:) But she will be a great big sister either way !

Laura said...

Oh my, I am so jealous of you amazing house (so is Dan, he wants to be a school teacher now!) I'm glad you guys are finally in and I hope the rest gets done soon!
Congratuations on having another little one. Two is better then one! You guys are going to have so much fun!
We could get together the week between Christmas and New Years- maybe the 29th or 30th? Or maybe the 23rd

Kelli said...

Ummm, this is kinda awkward...Since I was hoping you would have already anounced this...but you forgot to mention that you were getting a new roomate/nanny. But that's ok, I totally forgive you. I bet you were just waiting till i moved in and we could take some pics, then post it. Yo are such a clever girl. :) :)

PS LOVE your new home, and am thrilled that about the new baby!

Megann said...

I love the kitchen. The whitish cabinets were definitely a good choice. You are so sweet and it was great chatting yesterday. I'll for sure ask for b days next year, if there is a next year.

Crystal said...

OK I know this is my 2nd post to you but I cant get over how beautiful your house is. The kitchen is AMAZINGLY beautiful. This is no joke, I have looked at your blog over 10 times since 2:00 pm yesterday and here I am one more time this morning. Did I mention how BEAUTIFUL your house is. So when are you going to have all of us HS friends over for lunch??? This is definitly your turn:-)

Wow lady so much excitement! And you did amazingly well on all your house choices! It is beautiful. I love the fireplace and rustic mantle, kitchen-beautiful, colors fantastic, love the big tall doors and all the craftsmanship! Yay for you, you guys have definitely earned it! And I am so, so excited for this baby #2. Sorry to hear you're not feeling so well. Hopefully that will pass as you enter the later tri's.
Anyways, glad for a new post, luv the house, your family is beautiful and be careful with the no blinds!
