How are y'all surviving this crazy storm? I am loving it! Thankful that our neighborhood has AWESOME drainage. The wind is insane!! Thank God our palm trees are now secure so they won't be falling over ever 5 seconds anymore! I've never seen a storm like this. We have had hail everyday. We needed this water so bad! Kate and I have been snuggled inside all day everyday and it has been wonderful. We gotten some awesome snuggle time in. Lots of smiles, giggles and naps. Tell me this isn't the life? I am proud to say that today I did not leave my bed and I don't feel bad about it one bit. Well I did to get up to do laundry, eat breakfast and lunch, make bottles, change 20+ diapers but you get the point. I brought fairyland on the bed along with the bumbo chair. We had an awesome view of the storm while laying in bed and looking out the sliding doors. Rain is an awesome form of entertainment for an infant y'all. She was so amused. As was I :) I have really enjoyed just being home this week. Quite refreshing. Praying for all of those who are dealing with the slides and horrible damage from the winds. Scary stuff. There's been a good amount of damage in our city where all the fires took place last year. So sad! There is no better way to experience a storm than having a baby snuggled on your chest. I have dreamt about this day for years and it is as wonderful as I imagined. Feeling so blessed tonight.

And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it. All because we put the tv on the wall! Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover. Before . I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown. I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
