When Ty and I got married 4 ½ years ago we knew we were fighting an uphill battle.

As we get closer to #1 and #2’s birthdays I start to realize that the years are flying by all too quickly. I remember bringing them both home from the hospital and the joy they brought into my life. I also remember the hopes and dreams I had for each one of them when they were little. My hopes and dreams have not gone away, but have changed a bit over the years. Throughout the years I have realized there are certain things we need to teach and tell our sons before it is too late and they are gone. These are the 30 Things Every Mom Should Tell her Sons.
So often we get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life that we forget to stop and think about what we are truly grateful for. There is sunshine in all of our souls and we just have to look for it!

We are a meat and potatoes family here. We would eat it everyday if we could! We love to BBQ so we were so excited when we discovered a new marinade recipe for flank steak with my brother, the master chef in the family! It is so easy to do and the longer you marinade it the better!

Two months before my husband and I got married we bought a fixer upper in the perfect neighborhood in the city we were living in. We knew he had two months to fix it up and get it to our standard of liveable before we combined households and moved in.
This house was disgusting when we bought it; it needed a whole new paint job because of booger stained walls, it needed new carpet because of fecal matter from pets, it smelt like a zoo had been living their for years, the tile floors needed to be stripped down because the previous owners tried a DIY project that obviously went bad, the cabinets were caked with 3 inches of grease, the countertops had lost its grout because of poor maintenance, and the backyard was unfinished. Sadly, this house was only 5 years old and had sustained this much damage and abuse. They always say buy the worst house in the best neighborhood, well we did!
We were so ill prepared for what we were going to take on as a “happily engaged” couple. We had set a budget and had an idea of what we needed to do, but that was about it. We had never worked on a project together before, never really talked about decorating, or desires so you could say that we were going in blindly to the project.
I recall our first “discussion” about the house when I realized that renovating a house with anyone, especially my fiance might have been the worst thing I ever decided to do! One night, we were talking about paint colors and painting when I suggested that we paint the house a few different colors (not all in the same room) to give the house some character. I also suggested we paint the house a nice warm color that was not tan, because at that time everyone’s house was tan. The look that was shot across the room for suggesting something other than tan was priceless! He then followed it up with, “What do you mean a different color, we are painting it tan.”
