I Am Back!

Some of my readers are probably mad that I have not had anything on my blog for a long time. But watch out I am back and in full force until the baby is born...33 days to go! Work has been insane the past two weeks and with Trevor's party last Saturday every spare minute was spent getting things ready for that.

So since I am behind we are going to go back to last Saturday which was my grandma Donahue's 80th birthday party. Most of you know that my mom has a huge family and last Saturday was the first time in I am not sure how long that everyone was together except one sibling. My uncle from California was home along with my aunt from Spearfish. Here is a picture of the whole gang with my grandma.

Can you imagine living in a house with all those kids?? Plus there is one not pictured and 2 have pasted away, what a large family. It was nice to have everyone together again but man was it crazy with all the families and there families but good for my grandma to have everyone together.

Just A Small Sneek Peek

This past 3 weeks we have been working on the baby's room to get it complete so we can move furniture in there. The last owners did some remodeling that was not very complete so knowing Jon he wanted it complete and done right before we did anything. They had a closet in there and when they got rid of it they covered it up with sheet rock and did not tape or mud the cracks so you could see right where it was. Jon got it to the point where he could mud and tape the cracks and then sanded it. But because there where no other coats on it, it took a long time to do: like weeks! You have to put 3-4 coats on drywall and the previous coat has to be all dry or else it will not turn out and you have wasted your time. So now that is all done and he sanded the other day and then decided to texture the walls so they look good as new and man do they ever!! So last night I put one coat of primer on and tonight my soon to be sister-in-law helped me paint the room. Yes I will tell you what the color is but I bet most of you will be disappointed!

Since the bedding Jon and I picked out is either all really pink or blue I decided that painting the walls that color too would be too much so we went with this:

Bet you are wondering why the heck green?? Well you will see when I am finished and also why we only painted half the wall, that is another suprise in itself! I am just excited that we are almost done!!

Anyone heard of NetFlix?? Well I had heard of them but really never looked into it but I did this past weekend and signed us up. Talk about a good deal if you watch movies! There are different packages you can sign up for and they range for $4-$19 a month. The one I picked is 2 movies at a time and you can keep them as long as you want (no late fees) and just send them back in the mail and when they get one or both back they will send one or two more. The best part is they only take 1 business day to get. What a great deal~~We get our first 2 today so we will see how things go, if you are a movie watcher you better check it out.

Jon and I do rent a lot of movies but the problem we ran into was by the time we had the time to sit down and watch them they would be a day late or due back the next day so we always paid more to keep it an extra day and what a waste of money. This is exciting and we can not wait to see how it goes.

Thanks for visiting Healy Happenings and come back soon!
