So Late on These....

Added a few family pictures on here. I PROMISE that I will get renovation picts up soon...right now, I am trying to get the house done. All the little touches still need to be added! This picture is of us on a carriage ride while we were on our mini vacation. We desperatly needed time away after this rough year, but didnt want to spend much money, so we took a one nighter to Indy. Our favorite place!
Abbie took this one in front of the window of our hotel room. We got a GREAT deal on the Hyatt! Priceline is wonderful. We stayed in a $400 room for $65!!!! And we had a corner room with huge windows that showed Indy in all her glory.
This was Abbie and Isaac on our last night in the old church. It also happened to be the 4th of July! Have no idea what Isaac was doing...he looks kinda wierd.

90 Day Power Make Over...

So, we begin. Tonight we started the Dave Ramsey Total Money Makover program! Our goal is to be financially fit. That actually is an inaccurate statement. Our goal is to be physically fit, financially fit, emotionally fit, spiritually fit... We have 90 days to acheive these goals: (Some of these are personal goals, some are goals as a couple)

1. Save at least $1,000
2. Pay off at least $2,000 in debt
3. Have enough money saved for the purpose alone of enjoying Christmas.
4. Finish all the painting of the house.
5. Landscape the exterior.
6. After the house is finished, go 30 days with a clean house.
7. Be in a size 6-8 jeans by Christmas.
8. Stay on a budget for 30 days.
9. Stay on a schedule for school for 4 weeks.
10. Go 30 days without missing devotions/prayer time.

My goal is not to do these all at the same time, but to start one and then after I start feeling better about that one, start working on another one. I desire by the New Year, to not have to feel bad that I never achieved my 2007 goals. I desire that when I take communion this year on New Years Eve, that my life is glorifying to God.

I am praying that God will keep me accountable. I am praying that He will give me strength. On my own, I can not succeed. On my own...I will fail. I need discipline. Pray with me???

Week 3 and 4

Well...since it is now Thursday of week 4, I thought that I would just post an update for both weeks.

We now have the siding finished. We have a finished front porch and deck. We have finished wiring. We have a finished roof. And now...onto the FUN STUFF!!!! We are starting the inside this week!!!!! YYYIPPPPPPEEEEEE!!!!! Ok, so actually this is the cheapest part of the whole renovation process, but it the part that I will actually notice ;)

The contractors started the bathroom today. And it is lovely. lol. Right now there is a green ceiling and untrimmed walls and doors. We also got our new front door today. Looks good. We started tearing off the wallpaper today. (Yes it was a busy day!) And we will start patching tommorow and hopefully painting on Sat. We need to have at least 2 of the rooms painted by Monday.
all the patching needs to be done by the end of next week. So, we have a lot of work to do. I threw in a before picture of the kitchen just for fun! The majority of the renovation is set to be done by next FRIDAY! Can you believe it???? Cant wait to show you all the finished house! I'm so excited...and I just cant hide...I'm about to loose control and I think I like it. Have a Cheery Day!
