Hello All….

here is a little update on what’s going on…..

well, we are still not in our house! after a month of staying in a hotel, we finally moved into some temporary housing near our home while it is being fixed.  i expect that we will be here for 4-6 more weeks. all the walls, everything in the kitchen, bathroom,  part of my bedroom and all the flooring was removed. our house is empty….and completely unliveable.
finally, yesterday, we got the electrical and prep done to put the new drywall up. if all goes as planned, everything except the flooring and cabinets for the kitchen and bathroom will be complete by saturday!  yippee. and as soon as the cabinet maker finishes the cabinets, they will be put in, then the flooring and painting will be done. and viola! i will practically have a new house. yes….i am very excited to have everything new….however, i would have never chosen to get it this way. it has been a struggle. everything seems ten times harder to get done, and i probably run back and forth between our house and here 10 times a day! time for crafts, blogging and practically everything has been scarce. but….there is a light at the end of the tunnel. i needed a break…now i am refreshed and excited to start this month out with new inspiration!
in the meantime….baby turned 1 year, 1 month yesterday. with all the problems going on, we didn’t even get to have a birthday party for him. it was going to be A Hungry Caterpillar theme. i will still have it sometime this summer. any ideas?


  1. Wow…those are adorable parties!!!! Definitely going to use some of those ideas! Thanks!!!

    @Jenni….I sure hope this doesn’t happen again. How could you go through it 3 times?!?!

    hi, I totally sympathize with your situation. I live in Costa Mesa with my 3 and 4 year old and we are currently rebuilding our home’s interior for the 3rd time after crappy pipes flooded it AGAIN.

    I have a link to a cute Very Hungry Caterpillar bday too: http://coffeecraftsandcupcakes.blogspot.com/2011/04/very-hungry-caterpillar-party-feature.html

    Hang in there!
