Sunshine Sunday - haircuts and carpet

I gave the boys haircuts this week.  I think Baden lost a few pounds with his.  They are both ready for warm weather now.  They are actually getting old enough that they are pretty good for their haircuts.  There is now minimal bribing occurring to make it happen :)  I never got a chance to get a good picture of them this week.  Here's a weird phone picture.

When my husband and I got married and moved into our first home, the carpet was pretty gross.  I begged him to let me change it, but it wasn't really in the budget and we didn't think we'd live there forever.  When we moved into this home three and a half years ago I begged him to change the dirty carpet, but it also wasn't in the budget.

Everyone says new carpet makes a home feel like it's really yours.  It's been my dream for many years.  Well, tomorrow is the day!  We're finally getting carpet and I could not be more excited.  Our house is a wreck right now because we spent a big portion of the day yesterday moving everything to the hard wood floor area.  Remember how I showed you the front room reveal last week?  Ha!  It looks like this now.

This week is going to be a crazy, busy week.  You know how sometimes you're not sure how it can all possibly get done?  Yeah, it's one of those.  So, please be patient if you email me and I don't get right back to you.  I'm trying and I'm a bit stressed :)  

Thanks for stopping by.

Yay for carpet! Hope all goes well & that you're able to find a moment to just lay on your fresh (& clean!) new carpet & have a stress free moment.

Oh no, I don't envy the process of renovating, but the end result will be worth it. Hang in there!

I love the un-styled version of the front room.

We have started a very protracted process of painting each room in the house. Why do we do this to ourselves?

You can do it! Relax and go with the flow. Everything will work out but maybe not on your mental time scale. So if it takes an extra day it will eventully get done.

Your kids take cute pictures no matter what! My boys are in desperate need of haircuts, we were trying for the surfer look but discovered some crazy cowlicks :) So happy for your new carpet! We had carpets replaced in our last house and I remember being so excited! The only warning I will give is that the new carpet smell can be really really strong. It gave me the jitters and my kids we nauseated for a week or so :( Hopefully the weather will be nice and you can keep the windows open! Cant wait to see!

Tee Hee! of all the weird things for me to finally comment on, I'm so happy for you and the new carpet! ;^J Getting rid of the gross carpet in our house has been a major dream of mine, I'm hoping one day soon our day will come too. Enjoy! While I'm at it I must say how much of a blessing your blog has been to me this year and how much I look forward to your wonderful posts everyday. Thank you!
