Casey and Shelbi's Wedding

 A few weeks ago, Joey's brother,  Casey got married.  We absolutely love Casey and Shelbi, and their son,  Reece. The wedding was beautiful.   Shelbi had the tiniest details planned out, honestly I   don't know how people do it. It was all perfect!

Wedding Snapchat filters:
I'd like to point out Joey and I got married before even Pinterest was a thing. I wonder what our wedding hashtag would have been? Casey and Shelbi's was so cute and witty...#shelbialawhorn
Get it? She'll be a Lawhorn. I loved it!

The boys were THRILLED to spend some time with their cousins, Brody and Colson. These two boys are so precious, so polite, so well behaved and took great care of my boys this night.  Because I'm pretty sure as soon as we got there, Major ran off and wanted nothing to do with his boring parents the rest of the night ;)

Love this picture of Shep and Papaw Joe.

Excited we just got ANOTHER sister ;) Including my sister, I have 6 sisters now :)

Joey with his dad and sister, Jen.

I told you he wanted nothing to do with me :(

My handsome groomsman.

Major of course wasn't interested in a family picture.

Shelbi's maid of honor performed a rap to the tune of Fresh Prince and it was hilarious.

Shepherd broke our hearts with his precious dancing. He was so nervous to dance and started out just barely tapping his little toe. He eventually warmed up and had a blast on the dance floor.

Major needed no warming up and stole the show all night.

June Resolutions Review

For the month of June, I made it my goal to drink 8 glasses of water a day. That would equal out to about 4 bottles of water. Well...turns out I suck at drinking water. However, I'm really good at opening bottles of water and never finishing them. I usually drink maybe 2 bottles a day.

I'm taking the month off from a July resolution because right now theres nothing I'm that motivated to do. Also my kitchen is a disaster, which has turned my entire house into a disaster. So I'm just trying to survive until my kitchen is put back together. Probably 3 more weeks, at the very least. =(

Gigi and Pappy's House!

This month we have spent almost two weeks at my parent's house. Our first trip, I took the boys for a few days before Father's Day to spend some time with my dad. Then a few weeks ago we spent Tuesday - Friday there again because Joey was working on our kitchen and we wanted to be out of the way.

Owensboro has the best splash pad! Out in the country and no where for my kids to run off. Thats how I rate easy would it be for me to lose a kid? This one gets a 100 for safety!

My mom and I took all three boys to Hobby Lobby at dinner time. I knew it was a mistake, especially now because I can't even remember what I was looking for.
This is how we exited Hobby Lobby:
(I wouldn't buy him a fidget spinner.)

As soon as we got home, he put himself to bed:

Lots of sparklers!

Three sweet brothers :)

More park fun!

AND more sparkler fun:

Back to the splash pad.

Got to go out to dinner with my best friend!

Pappy and Maj :)

The kitchen remodel has begun!

Its going to be so worth it, but it is miserable living without a kitchen. Also, its insane how upending one room has completely affected the rest of the house. Our entire house is a disaster because of the kitchen. There is food all over the dining room table, island pieces in the entry, hardwood in the den, plastic sheets blocking all entry to the kitchen, the garage is overtaken with cabinets, and drywall dust on EVERYTHING. Its super fun and not making me cranky at all ;)
Joey is doing everything himself (with the generous help of some family and friends!) with the exception of the countertops and we have people here right now moving some HVAC lines.

So this was BEFORE, taken the day we moved in:

First thing we did was knock this wall down.

That floor has 5 layers. This is down to the third layer, so we have two more to go:

Knocked out a wall into the guest room closet, to create a pantry! The guest room has two closets, so it worked out perfectly. I'm so excited about having a pantry!

Painting cabinets:

I had a vision in mind for what I wanted the new pantry, Joey went to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore one day and found EXACTLY what I wanted!
We stripped the paint off it and are hoping it will stain up and look really nice. If not, we'll just paint it black again. I want to frost the window and write "PANTRY" on it, or maybe our last name.

Removed the island:

And this is exactly what it looks like as I post this. I took this picture 5 minutes ago ;)
We decided to open up the window into the den (it used to be arched) to make it easier to put Subway tile all the way to the ceiling!! :)))) Ahh I can't wait!!
